Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 15, 2006
The Seattle Podcasting Network is proud to recognize podcasters via the 2006 Passionate Podcaster contest. Podcasters from all over the world are invited to submit two of their programs to be evaluated on energy, creativity, and originality. The winner of the contest will receive an MP4 integrated high quality sound card and audio mixer (valued at $800) from Rane Corporation.
The Rane MP4 provides the convenience of playing digital music directly from your computer, mixing them with analog inputs (including a microphone) and sending the mixed signal back to the computer via USB. The MP4 allows for crossfading between two stereo sources with talk over capability. It features two-analog stereo Line/Phono inputs; two stereo inputs via the USB connection, an analog microphone input and one stereo digital audio output to USB. The MP4 allows easy mixing and recording of digital and analog inputs not readily available on software-only solutions. More information about the mixer is available at http://www.rane.com/mp4.html.
The contest is open for entries from July 15th through August 31st. To enter, podcasters should visit http://seattlepodcasting.net/ and click on the contest link to fill out the entry form. During the entry submission period, we’ll create and distribute two podcasts discussing the contest and the mixer and release them as part of the Seattle Podcasting Network’s official podcast. (Subscribe to our RSS feed at http://www.seattlepodcasting.net/?feed=rss2, or listen online at http://seattlepodcasting.net.) A winner will be announced on September 15th, 2006. Podcasters do not have to be located in Seattle to win.
