That microphone claims it only records at "CD Quality." That's pretty bad. I've got options in Realtek Audio Manager to record at different sound outputs (dubbed as CD, DVD and 'studio' quality ... essentially 44,100Hz, 48,000Hz and 96000Hz recording modes) however in CD and DVD quality I sound quite muffled and a LOT MORE BORING than I do with it set on 'studio' (which it's on now ._.) but it has the drawback of that background buzzing sound. I always thought Turtle Beaches were supposed to be good mics. Guess not ._.
Anyways I can't buy the mic; it doesn't ship out of the US.
In terms of 'ad hoc' mic settings what's the best way for me to set up my mic for recording? (by this I mean with what sound options windows has and what options the Realtek audio software has). I might just switch it back to 'DVD quality' and fiddle with the options (noise suppression, echo cancellation), I can't change them in 'studio' recording.
Watching your video again...I think you're listenable...just put more emotion into what you're saying.
And yes, I told Ellipsis to render his videos with Sony Vegas, When you get it, make sure you take a look at this video to look at the best rendering options.
A suggestion you can do is make a series of it or something innovative. Minecraft even has it's own directors section so if you master it then you're golden. Sadly I don't know anyone that you can collab with.
I guess you got an okay voice for commentaries but buy these things I just bought if you're too lazy to look at the latest buys...now, not buy it when you can..I'm not telling you to buy all these things at once.
Depends. Since it's Minecraft I guess you can do Live Commentaries using Audacity while you play. However, if it's a different game not everyone is good doing Live Commentaries, see how you do because it can mess you up. Most people record what they say AFTER....pretty much like pretending they are playing.
Also if you do watch the one visible minecraft video I've put up, I know it's nothing special. But ... I have to start somewhere, don't I? I was also drunk at the time and I have a habit of losing my train of thought. The second video isn't as bad (there are some moments) and the third episode onwards I will probably redo when sober in order to get everything rolling, rather than me just flounder around pointlessly like I do for 30 minutes.
Also I did it all with Windows Movie Maker so I don't think it's that bad. But like I said, I'll be getting Sony Vegas (or something else, if you suggest anything else?) which should let me do some better video editing. I'll still be trying to keep it simple though.
... Also also how would I set up commentaries for Xbox? I have a Turtle Beach (I use it for xbox and for PC ... I might get a new headset for PC if it gets rid of the buzzing noise) but ... I don't know how to record my voice on Xbox along with everyone else's.
That's ironic, because I literally just started toying around by starting a 'let's play' recording of Minecraft (although it's more of a 'let's fail' since I'm pretty bad at it).
I'm aware the series itself is terrible (uploaded two episodes so far ... one is hidden) and my mic is also terrible (an annoying buzzing sound I can't get rid of -_- even though I have a turtle beach) but I'm really only doing it as a means to learn how to commentate videos decently as well as to get to grips with basic video editing (I'm planning on getting Sony Vegas which will help me with video editing as otherwise I only have windows movie maker, which is very limited in what it can do -_-)
If you know anyone that plays Minecraft that might want to get involved with me so we can help one another, that might actually help. Even if it just gives me someone to talk to and discuss things in the videos o_o
You should try Minecraft.
If you're good, it can get you maaaaaaaaaad views.
Also, you could apply for TGN
But I am not sure if they will could accept you yet. Perhaps they will.
Another suggestion is that you can do commentary as well that's a nice addition but it ain't completely needed so don't stress on that.
But to be honest, your best bet is Most Wanted 2012 right now. While you get it a few days late, if you decide not to import then try to record as soon as you get it. You may not be THAT late.
What I did before was just keep switching the cables when I felt recording a PS3 or an Xbox 360 game.
When importing, I was referring to PS3. While Xbox are region-locked, yes...the game are not. Meaning, while the system may be region-locked, if a game is region-free then it will work in all regions. I doubt it will be region-free though. If you decide to import for PS3...I dunno where to import from America, you know, cause I'm in America. What I plan to do is import One Piece and record gameplay nd get my boy post them on Saiyan Island and maybe ask Ace if I can post them in AnimeGlobe.
You can try LittleBigPlanet Karting and if you got creativity then it will boost you like hell as well. But I dunno, the LBP Hype is not that big anymore.
No, no, no....Don't spam videos, either. At least post 5 videos showing off different portions of the game. Like story, online and different modes. Once you got that covered then try to show a lot of online, you pwning noobs and crap.
I also have very little interest in things that aren't racing games. Like I have Halo Reach but I've barely played it. I've never been into fighters or shoot-em-ups, although I do sometimes play random platformers (I was thinking of picking Fez up, to be honest, but it's been out a while.)
I'm defo getting MW2012 though and I will likely be spamming video uploads of it like crazy. I liked Hot Pursuit although I didn't play too much of HP owing to Criterion's Autolog system having teething problems (specifically it would hang when logging me in and did this for three months... by which point I gave up on it.) Not a big deal, I suppose..
