  • I had a dream that for my birthday my dad got lunch from two places. I should've known it was a dream when from the Dairy Queen bag fell one wrapped half of a Waffle-Iron Grilled Cheese (and I caught it like a pimp :cool:), because DQ stopped selling them years ago.
    My trusty pair of BASS JAXX TITAN headphones started shorting out today. They developed a problem where at certain angles they would exhibit symptoms of phase inversion-- they'd swap to Mono, and from what I can tell, center-panned signals specifically would cut out. The poor thing was living on borrowed time though, and I knew it.
    SO. I've switched over to the extra pair of this exact model of headphone that I got this past Christmas :3V:. I'd been using the other pair for... well, I'm pretty sure I'd been using them since a little ways into my SoundCloud career. So, a little bit over two years I'd been using them, then. I'd actually forgotten that the earphones were made with a false cowhide pattern. Not to mention that they used to cancel out background noise a good amount, like this new pair does.

    Thank you, Titan I, for o'er two years of excellent service. May your cardboard crypt protect you forever,
    and may your successor live up to your legacy. May this successor also be more accepting of my rather lărge head.

    ...meanwhile, aforementioned big head is causing my own 'phones to hurt my ears...

    Todo está bien, you know what they say about big heads. Big... uh... storage spaces of information. Yeah.

    Apparently, people with larger-sized heads are descended from homo sapiens that cross-bred with neanderthals.

    And I mean, like, it's better than heads that're too small. If it weren't, I can imagine that anime would look a whooole lot different.
    yo, my brain supplied me with a total pearl of an analogy just now. It took me a bit to figure out how to word it, but it's a fab one.

    How about:
    An audience is like a fire. Keep lighting the flint, keep the bed maintained, and it'll appear.

    I feel like the analogy to maintaining your image (whether that was your intent or not) is to its detriment, to be honest.

    Since the original intent was to talk about the perseverance angle, how 'bout "keep feeding it and it'll grow"

    tahutoa, I think you just hit the jackpot.
    Did anyone else play Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo on the 3DS?
    tahutoa
    tahutoa
    I ask because that game was fuckin' fab, even though sometimes it was relentless (I got every single acorn in the game-- in NG+ as well, I think, plus all the challenges for every level, and it was so goddamn hard to do some of those time trials), and it's a crying shame that as of typing this I've had yet to see the soundtrack on YouTube, because that Autumn track is fly, especially those flute samples, which I'm under the impression are called "TronFlutes" for some reason? If anyone knows where I can access either of those two that'd be grand.

    Maybe I'll get lucky and someone will have posted the OST in the last... uh... half-decade since I last checked.

    Edit: okay, seriously, what the fuck, people can pirate entire Mario Kart 7 roms and shit but they can't get a simple iOS port's ost in seven goddamn years.
    apparently i need to find some way of recording 3ds audio through the headphone jack because this is unacceptable

    I've done it. ...by the way. as of about 9-ish hours ago. Cleared the white noise caused by recording, fixed the levels, sounds niiice and crisp. I'll spoil you all with these dulcet tones soon enough.
    oh my god it's been a full week since my last status post. And oddly enough, I feel better now than I have since mid-May.

    OMG, a whole week! For @tahutoa, that is a shock!
    Question: what does adding an (!) after a word actually imply? I'm almost positive that it's a way of saying something is particularly of note (even if the reasons themselves may not be obvious, or indeed even known to the reader, necessarily), like
    Wario was on his way to the store to get some bread (!) and eggs.

    I only ask because Google treats the (!) (which I like to pronounce as a clipped, slightly angry-sounding "Au--!") like it's not part of the search query, and I assume someone on here's more knowledgeable than I am.
    Ah yes... nothing like trying to find Spritelings in Greenhorn Ruins and realizing that Dad has the L/R speakers in the opposite location...

    Related: if you're planning on watching Sixties Spider-Man, relegate your consumption to the first season. trust me.
    Is it just me, or did the beta for Wario World have better lighting than the final game?

    Horror Manor (Outside) is one of my favorites. The strategic usage of the Cricket noises is definitely a cool thing about it that I like, and the really weird, unorthodox second half, with that weird, synthetic violin pad they've got goin'.
    I want to figure out what all these different sounds used were, including that weird "a'wood-uhl wood-uhl wood-uhl" sound. I actually heard that in real life once while walking the dog and was just like "yooooo"

    Oh, and I love the Inside theme's muffled pizzicato+french horns combination.

    That's not that unusual. Games like Gears of War and (most notoriously) Dark Souls 2 got big downgrade to their dynamic lightning to get a playable framerate on consoles

    From the looks of the scenery in those screenshots, it was either better graphics or better lighting (though that's just speculation). If this is true, then I think ultimately the right decision was made.
    Today while messing around in Pro Tools, I accidentally found the Mega Man X orchestra hit in its original form. According to the Xpand!2 preset description, it is a "Brass Glock and Woodwinds Hit", and that high-pitched sound being a glockenspiel makes so much sense.
    Does anyone know of a database where I might identify this instrument sample? All I'm seeing are song identifiers.

    You're probably just gonna have to ask people. A website or program that could do something like that sounds too specific and would need to have access to a database of sorts I'd imagine.
    Hope you're feeling better, tahutoa.
    A lot of stuff is going on, you're trying to 'rebrand' and you seem stressed.
    It doesn't help that you get lots of warnings and even some temp bans, too.
    Just remember, you ARE human and ARE valued.
    Have a nice day, okay?
