    U.S.S. Sasquatch First Flight

    Post  Hackmodford on November 22nd 2010, 2:30 pm

    I'm going to use this post as a worklog for the drama I'm going to be mixing

    Also this post will be where the cast members can contribute and ask me questions.

    I believe this will work better than email.

    Hi Brandon - I've got my audio recorded, and I'll be editing soon. Wanted to get it done ahead of time in case you had any feedback / change of direction you were looking for. (about to travel for work, so time is tight for getting in front of a microphone)

    What format would you like for files, and how should we get them to you?

    I've been using <CharacterName>_Page<no>Line<no> so far - does that work OK for you?

    Typically I make audio available as a ZIP download off my website, but I can use DropBox if that's preferred.

    Also, I'm assuming 44KHz sampling rate, 24bit PCM mono audio is your preferred choice for rendering?

    Put it on your site as a zip, and email me the link. Wav or aiff works if you have enough space to host it. Otherwise mp3.
    I can download it tomorrow.

    Edit: And I wish the cast would post atleast once Sad

    I should have that file up tonight or tomorrow night. Mine was a particular value of soon... ;-)

    (I'm finishing up editing an audio book project, and almost done)

    I'm sure the cast are busy beavering away on recording lines for you, too. :-)

    Got most of the Lines from Kevin Powe. I was going to record Gabriel Newhall but I can't seem to find my usb soundcard now... Maybe I'll just have to record directly to CD...

    Does anyone have an idea on how we should pronounce some of the harder words?
    We need to be consistent.

    I'd go with the dictionary when in doubt about real words and with Charles when they are made up.

    Hi Guys,
    Which words are you having trouble with?
    These kinda stand out with me:

    Arghian: AR-gee-an. Sort of rhyms with Agean.
    Locasi: Low-Casey

    Just let me know what you need.

    How should we pronounce T'Chak?
    Also "patorgas" (I spelled that wrong)

    I decided to finally try out the Levelator

    If you don't know about this program you can find it here.
    http://www.conversationsnetwork.org/levelator

    This is what Jessup's (Glen Hollstrom) lines looked like before


    I had to convert it to an uncompressed format and then drag it onto the levelator to let it do it's work


    Once it was done this is what I got...


    Nice even volume on all the lines.

    so I guess it would be nice if you actors could just send me one big whopping file Very Happy

    Basically you're looking at a waveform (a graphical representation of a sound wave) The stuff that's skinnny in the middle is quieter, whereas the stuff that gets taller on the top and the bottom is louder. (the mid is quiet, the top and bottom is loud)

    So you can clearly see what the levelator did. It made the volume even all the way across.

    In any case I now have the lines ready + leveled for

    Jessup
    Leeds
    Alpha
    Lynch

    I'm going to record Gabriel (and maybe Robert) today before church starts...

    So I was messing around with the voice file for the charecter Alpha...

    I first passed the voice through a filter that would lower the quality... Basically I could make it sound like it was coming out of a 8 bit Nintendo if I wanted to (you know how voices didn't quite sound right back then?)

    So I lowered the quality just a bit...

    Then I ran a filter called Detune (basically I think it plays the same track over it's self in a slightly out of tune way)

    Then I ran through and deleted all the "breaths" the actress would make (computers don't breathe right?)

    So this is what it sounds like now... http://www.mediafire.com/file/9niav13fnavv4uz/alphatest.wav
