Here's something different I've started fooling with that I'm pretty excited about. This audio is for a Super 8 film festival I entered. $25 entry fee, they loan you an old school super 8 camera, you shoot your 3 minutes 20 seconds and there is no editing. You can submit a soundtrack but you don't get to see the final result until the night of the showings. I think the quality is just about as bad/good as my film is going to be!

As far as what I did:

I looped a lot of short segments of realtracks and then exported to garageband where I added some Apple percussion loops and played a little bit of a garageband synthesizer. All the stringed instruments are Real Tracks except for the bass which I played. Long story short I had to record vocals on my old Snowball USB mic but I think the quality is sufficient for the overall level of the entire project.

Hello Jay,
Talk about thinking out of the box! I loved it. Good mix and great editing of RT. It just shows what can be done with BIAB in any type of media. Keep up the great work and good luck in the contest.
Marty

Vocals are fine, as are strings, and the structure's cool too, nicely mapping to things in the poetry. The bass seems kind of "boomy" on my subwoofer system, and wonder what that track might sound like if it were eq'ed with less low end and more mid-range. Would love to see the visuals when it sweeps the competition.. Best of luck...(And you can throw my opinion of the bass track in the drainage ditch in ten pieces, just as long as it doesn't end up near the mistake by the lake!) Peace..

You got me to laugh
Reminded me of "Heathers" .. nice job. Soundtrack fit very well.

You can read the hieroglyphs on the bathroom wall .. that was good.

Bass may benefit from a touch of EQ, but not a deal killer here; rest of project more than compensates.
Nit-picking, the reverb cutoff (or damping) could be lower on female vocal track, with less predelay

But this is a great job IMHO.

Wow. Original, enthralling. The real deal. Congratulations on putting that together.
If it doesn't win, just send the track to David Lynch and he'll make a superb TV six-parter from it!

Hi Jay23,

I can't stop laughing long enough to post. lol

I think we get our drinking water from the Ohio river. I have a filter on it and it tastes ok, but dang, wish I had the money to spring for some bottled.

Really good, thanks for sharing.

Later,
Jim

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.

Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.

Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
