I've been dying to know what AH's audio setup is for a long time. What type of mics do you guys use, and how is your audio edited/monitored during filming?

Just answered the Mic/Mixer question, but I’ll repost it here too.

The AH Crew uses -

Mixer -  Zoom R24

Mics - Audio Technica AT4050

BUT!  Onto the new part of your question…

AH uses a Mac Mini running Audacity to record the audio sent from the Zoom R24 directly through USB.

The Mac Mini is set up to the big monitor you see in live action videos to oversee the audio recording and see if it stops/crashes/etc.  This giant TV is also used in Presented With Comment to display the videos that people can choose from.

The audio is exported into one .WAV file containing any number of 1 to 8 Mono-Audio tracks and the editor takes it from there and syncs that commentary audio to the gameplay videos.

Frosting

Giggles echoed down the hall. The sounds of pans and mixers and blenders had been filling the kitchen since this morning and had long since been going into the afternoon.  

Morality was humming and swaying to the radio that was turned on low, mixing a bowl of batter for another batch of something sweet. 

Logan had at first reluctantly joined him, but was challenged by a pun using Patton “But I how do we know who bakes, batter?”  and was now rather enjoying rolling out doughs and making various geometrical shapes.

Morality chuckled, picking up a bowl of icing as Logic studies the thin slab of dough, watching his partner calculated the spacing and amount of cookies it would create as he mixed yet again. His arm was aching but he ignored it because he loved it.

With a mischevious grin, he took his chance at the others distraction and stuck his finger in the gloop.  With a quick swipe, he grazed the frosting along Logans cheek. Stifling giggles as he stepped back.

Logic sighed with a tired smile.

It took him only a moment to look up at Morlaity, who was positively raidiating with happiness as he laughed.

Logic could’nt help the words slipping past his lips.

“Well, arent you just the sweetest”

Morality’s smile if possible doubled and had he had the bowl still in his arms.. it may of hit the floor. 


He dashed to him, motherly wiping the sweet from his cheek and not so innocently licking it from his thumb before squeezing Logan tightly.  Logan couldnt mistake the unsual odd wetness as tears hit his shirt as the father burried his face in the fabric. 

A muffled giggle vibrated on his chest.
“Awh lo… you’ve got me in teirs!”

Logan was unable to reply, overwhelmed by the way his heart was pulpitaing, he’d never be used to such a sensation…


Later that night, the sweet smell was finally fading from the air and the pair found themselfes curled in a blanket and huddled rather close.. At Patton’s institance.
Morlaity was gazing at the tie wearing trait as the baking show played in the background. Logan was rather inthralled by the intracit space designs used ona particular couples wedding cake.

It was quiet, nevorous whisper as Patton shifted in his seat.

“Do you think… We’d look good on a cake together?”



You know what, imma tag people..

On this day in music history: July 8, 1981 - “Beauty And The Beat”, the debut album by The Go-Go’s is released. Produced by Richard Gottehrer and Rob Freeman, it is recorded at Penny Lane Studios, The Record Plant and Sound Mixers Studios in New York City from April - May 1981. Having started on the underground punk rock scene in Los Angeles in the late 70’s, The Go-Go’s make their recording debut in 1980 when they release the first version of “We Got The Beat” through UK indie label Stiff Records. The single generates significant buzz back home in the US, but the Go-Go’s have difficulty securing a record contract. I.R.S. Records signs them, after numerous rejections from other labels, telling them bluntly that they feel that a self contained all female band won’t be successful in a male dominated music industry. The band work with songwriter and producer Richard Gottherer, originally one third of the 60’s band and songwriting team The Strangeloves (“I Want Candy”, “My Boyfriend’s Back”) and Rob Freeman. To record their full length debut, the band relocate to New York City to work with Gottherer and Freeman. Band members Charlotte Caffey and Jane Wiedlin write the bulk of the albums eleven tracks with Kathy Valentine and Belinda Carlisle also contributing. The first single “Our Lips Are Sealed” (#20 Pop) penned by Wiedlin and Terry Hall of the UK ska bands The Specials (later of Fun Boy Three), comes about after the pair become romantically involved while The Go-Go’s are touring as the opening act for The Specials. With Hall having a girlfriend back home, they write the song as a sly and ironic reference to the affair while trying outwardly to keep it under wraps. The albums now iconic cover photo features the Go-Go’s with their faces covered in cold cream and with their hair and bodies wrapped with bath towels. Before the photo shoot, the bands manager Ginger Canzoneri warns the girls not to get anything on the towels as she “needs to return them to Macy’s” after the photo session. Once released, the album initially gets off to a slow start, but quickly picks up steam after the release of the second single, the re-recorded version of “We Got The Beat” (#2 Pop) is issued in January of 1982. From there, “Beauty And The Beat” takes off like a rocket, with The Go-Go’s making history as the first all female band to score a number one album on the Top 200 in the US. Originally released on CD in the mid 80’s, it is remastered and reissued in 2011 for its thirtieth anniversary as a two disc deluxe edition, with the second CD featuring a live concert recorded at The Metro Club in Boston on August 20, 1981. The title is also reissued as a 180 gram vinyl LP pressed on pink translucent vinyl. “Beauty And The Beat” spends six weeks at number one on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 2x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

The smell is driving Barry nuts.

The day he moves in, he appreciates the homely undertones of vanilla in the air, and thinks that the previous owner of the tiny apartment must’ve been the type to collect those pricy, excessively scented candles. It’s not an unpleasant smell, per se, so he opens a window and doesn’t think twice about it.

The vanilla, however, persists for some time. When it finally goes away and Barry takes a deep, relieved breath, a hint of cinnamon tickles his nose. He spends two hours rooting through the apartment’s shelves and cabinets in search of the offending candle, but comes up empty-handed.

Recap: Oscar Trivia, Winners Edition

They’re not as pressing or as interesting, but here we go!

  • Elephant in the room first: that envelope debacle has never, ever happened before at the Academy Awards. There was an urban legend after Marisa Tomei won Supporting Actress in an upset for My Cousin Vinny that presenter Jack Palance read the wrong name, but that’s been proven to be false. This is the only time a legitimate gaffe has been made in presenting an Oscar.
  • Moonlight has made history in several ways with its Best Picture win! Not only is it the first film with an LGBTQ+ storyline to win the award, it is also the first with an all-black cast. It also, at $1.5 million, it’s by far the lowest budgeted winner in Oscar history. It’s only the second Best Picture winner where the sole protagonist of the film is black (the first being 2013′s 12 Years a Slave), and only the fourth to have a black protagonist of any kind (after 1989′s Driving Miss Daisy, where Morgan Freeman is a clear co-lead, and 2005′s Crash, which is a heavy ensemble film, but has four different black protagonists). 
  • While La La Land tied with Titanic and All About Eve for nominations (14), it is, of course, the only one of the three to not win Best Picture. All three won Best Director. 
  • Damien Chazelle is now the youngest Best Director winner, usurping the 85-year-old record set by Norman Taurog, who won in 1931 for the film Skippy. He is also the first American director to win the award since Kathryn Bigelow in 2009.
  • Mahershala Ali is the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar.
  • Viola Davis is the first black performer to win an Oscar, a Tony, and an Emmy. Grammy next?
  • This is the second consecutive year where the Best Picture winner ended with the word —-light. So there’s that, I guess.
  • O.J.: Made in America, clocking in at a brisk 467 minutes (almost eight hours), is the longest film to win an Oscar of any kind. It is also the first Oscar win for ESPN. 
  • Zootopia is Disney’s third film to win Animated Feature, after Frozen (2013) and Big Hero 6 (2014).
  • It’s often said that there’s a strong tie-in between the winners for Best Film Editing and Best Picture, however, the last couple years have begun to buck that trend. In 2014, when Birdman won Best Picture, it became the first film to do so without getting nominated for Film Editing. This year, with Hacksaw Ridge’s somewhat surprising win, it marks the sixth time since 2010 that the Best Picture winner actually won Editing. The only film to win both awards since has been Argo (2012). Meanwhile, The Social Network (2010), The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011), Gravity (2013), Whiplash (2014), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), and Hacksaw Ridge (2016) all won editing and failed to win Picture.
  • With wins for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Suicide Squad, the Harry Potter and DC Films franchises each won their first Oscar.
  • With Colleen Atwood’s Costume Design win for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, she is now tied for third most decorated costume designer in Oscar history. This is her fourth Oscar. The record to beat: eight, held by the queen of costume design, Edith Head. 
  • Sound designer Kevin O’Connell finally wins his first Oscar in 21 nominations with his win for Hacksaw Ridge. He is no longer the unluckiest nominee in Oscar history. That title, now extra true, belongs to sound mixer Greg P. Russell, who was nominated–and then was disqualified–this year for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. He’s been nominated 16 times, not including his disqualification.
  • This is the seventh year in a row where the Best Picture winner wasn’t the sole most decorated film of the year. This year, that still went to La La Land, with six wins; Moonlight won three.

Seeing that youve taken such consideration with your amputee mettaton~ In the game blooky is nonbinary and never uses "he" pronouns until metta slips up at the phone call in the last battle. I would love to see a nonbinary "appearance" to blooky :3

Left: Pre-Pacifist Blooky. I don’t think they would have much of an opinion about what they would wear. They might wear whatever they think is comfortable. Loose clothes and pajamas probably.

Right: Post-Pacifist Blooky. Maybe they would gain a little more confidence in themselves after working as a well-know sound mixer for a while. They might even give more effort into looking like they don’t stay cooped up all day. (boi i love that hair <3)

Min Yoongi - Absolution

Originally posted by mn-yg

Character : Yoongi x BTS

Genre : slight angst/fluff

Summary : Self-forgiveness was all he wished for on his birthday

| He wanted to turn 25, here. In his studio. In his little haven, the little home he built for himself. He wanted to turn 25 as Min Yoongi even though he supposedly killed Min Yoongi long ago as stated in one of his song. No Vapp broadcast this year. That was one of his request. Every year since they debuted, he celebrated his birthday with Army. Every year since 2013, he celebrated his birthday as Min Suga. However, this year when the member asked if he wanted to do another Vapp, he firmly rejected the idea.

Because I forgot who is Min Yoongi. Ever since we debuted, I have celebrated my birthday as Min Suga. As much as I love Army, as much as I love all of you, let me celebrate my 25 by myself. Let me find Min Yoongi again. He was me before I became Bangtan, before I became Agust D and before I became Min Suga..

Jungkook walked up to him, Ok, hyung. We respect that. We will see you back at the dorm later tonight and eat cake.

So here he sat, in a place where he shed tears of joy and pain. Where he gave up half of his teenage years for. He took the time to look around. To gently skim his fingers lightly over his sound mixer, to appreciate the 2 trophies standing proud on his shelf. Album of the Year (Melon) & Popularity Award (GAON). Those were the two awards he requested for. He still remembered what Namjoon said when he asked for it, It has always been yours hyung.

Min Suga never shows his emotions, Min Suga is strong. But right now, sitting here, with all this accomplishment, Min Yoongi broke down.

With the gentle flickering light from the burning scented candle that he always light, the clock strike midnight. Happy Birthday Min Yoongi.. Its been a long journey have it not? I’m sorry for abusing you all these years, I’m sorry for all the physical pain I have inflicted in this shell and soul. Most importantly I’m sorry for wanting to forget you, to leave you behind.

Yoongi sobbed onto his hands. Sobbed for the life that was once almost stolen from him when he tried to kill himself. Sobbed for the pain and uncertainty that he went through, for what the members went through. Sobbed for finally accepting that Min Yoongi, Min Suga & Agust D is really him. All of him. But most importantly he cried for finally being able to forgive himself.

He didn’t hear the door opened. He didn’t hear the clattering of footsteps but he did feel himself getting wrapped up and hugged from all sides by 6 warm bodies. He looked up and he saw all the members looking right at him. Tears either brimming on their eye or already streaming down their cheeks.

Happy birthday, Min Yoongi.. All of them whispered it out in unison when they let him go.

He stared at each of their faces. The magnae line crying the hardest. Jungkook who defiantly trying to wipe his tears off his face but failing to do so. The youngest of the group. The one boy he brought up. He saw him grew from day one. When he came walking into the studio and sat at the corner, watching his hyung trained. The little boy have grown into a man. A man Yoongi is really proud of. Thank you for letting me in your life. Thank you for giving me a reason to live again. The moment you walked through the door at 14 years of age, uncertain and awkward was the day hyung realized that you need me more than I needed myself.

He turned to look at Jimin who is holding on to a birthday cake with tears running down his face but still smiling. Not once has this younger boy forget any of their birthdays. Not once has this wonderful young man disappoint him. You saved me. Your infinite love for the members, for helping me overcome the darkness that wanted to swallow me whole. Thank you Jimin. That’s what hyung always wanted to tell you.

And then there’s Taehyung. Sweet Taehyung who have silently went behind Yoongi and wrapped his arm around his back. He could feel the wetness from his tears seeping through his shirt. For all his strangeness, Yoongi have always hold a soft spot for this particular member. Because in some ways, Taehyung reminds him of home. Warm and never judging. Hyung promise to never let go of your hands ever again. Let us fly together Taehyung. Let us finally find that beautiful moment in life cause hyung will be beside you for as long as you need me. I will be your home too.

He stared into Namjoon’s eyes. Mouthing the word Thank you. A thousand meaning hide behind those two words. Thank you for choosing me all those years ago to be part of this amazing team. Thank you for choosing me to be your hyung. You can finally lean on me now, Namjoon. Release some of your burden and share it with me. Hyung will carry it with you.

His gaze then settled onto Jin’s hyung face. Nothing is needed to be said for Jin. He just nodded to Jin and he received a smile in return. Thank you for being the person I come to when I got tired of being the older one in the group. Thank you for being my hyung and accepting me for who I am and what I have become.

He saved the best for last. Yoongi know he is not suppose to have any favorites within the team but Hoseok, he is his soul partner. His Yin to his Yang. Releasing himself from Taehyung backhug, he walked to Hoseok and pull him into a hug. Thank you for being who you are. For always being there for me. For showing me that there is still light. That hyung can be Yoongi, Agust D and Suga and yet I can still come home from training, from performing and from wherever I’m at and know that I have my guiding light, guiding me back home.

Namjoon once said “There is definitely, definitely certain things in this world that happened out of our control, So we.. Let’s us just forgive ourselves”

On March 9, 2017, 12:17 a.m. Yoongi finally did.
