The last I heard the new version won't work with old hardware. Nice. Spent $20k on a system three years ago, and now it's $20k of JUNK if I want to use the new features of the new software. Dear Avid: Fuck. You.
Not true. We're using an 888/24 interface with ProTools 10.2 in our studio and it works fine. Avid simply doesn't help you with the hardware if you're having trouble with it which is a little disheartening, but there are a large number of Pro Tools users on a number of forums who will help. Just because they say they don't support a piece of hardware it doesn't mean that it doesn't work. Plus, since Pro Tools 9, you can finally use practically any non-Digidesign/non-Avid audio interface; even your internal soundcard.
Wicked echo on the voiceover there, can you record that stuff in front of a curtain, or hang cloth over the walls or something. Its the little things.
But yeah this looks like a lot of fun.
I work in audio post-production so I always try to tell myself that most people don't have the know-how when it comes to recording, editing and mixing audio. Because if I didn't, I would be screaming at 95% of all the videos I watch on the internet.
Common voice over problems are:
1. Recording near the blaring computer fans.
2. Popping the mic on lips plosives (Ps and Bs)
3. Being too far from the mic (like in this case)
4. Clipping the recording.
5. Using an incredibly crappy webcam mic.
Why do all these horrible new viruses emerge from Germany?
Why would you host them on a slow, remote, ad-filled site, rather than on your own network?
I never noticed it being ad-filled as I've always used Ad-Block Plus. But even then, if I'm sharing files to other employees or clients, I simply send them the mediafire link and their browser automatically starts downloading the file. They have no reason to visit the Mediafire site at all.
Take everything in stride. Trample anyone who gets in your way.
