So I have a few suggestions to make your next call sound less like a laptop, more like a studio.I’ll start with some microphone basics. Then, I’ll show you Zencastr, a tool for recording audio without losing any quality due to the compression of sending realtime audio over the internet. Finally I’ll show you how to use OBS to apply audio processing in realtime to remove background noise and change the dynamic range.1. Get

A practical guide for the aspiring DIY data scientistLiving in Italy is intense right now.It took only 17 days to go from first noticing the COVID-19 outbreak, to having to refuse people care because hospitals are overloaded.Human brains do not intuitively grasp exponentials.
