Okay well I couldn't do what I planned too.........basically when doing an audio line, try to keep it sounding clean, the littlest pop or hiss can really ruin a performance (I gotta really clean my sound quality up myself...that's why i got LOTS of audio software)....monotones are horrible, they espically can ruin a performance or a moment in any film....also sounding hollow....sounding hollow is basically like an awkward mic feedback that makes you sound distant and staticy...you know you got it if you don't sound full and audiable (if that makes sense)....I really want everyone to come in as crystal clear as possible.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUVzybn4LfM this previous dub I did is a good example of vocal clearity.

anyways minus the vocals, I'm just about done remixing the entire 12 minutes of the opening film...which is faster then I anticipated but I know I'll hit some sort of a snag soon. I'm sort of combining ambience and sfx's at once...so there are a few gaps right now in my audio tracks. Good thing is I got a kick ass missile sfx from a friend XD and I can manipulate it with Adobe to sound like multiple missiles all coming at ya!

I'll scout out voices in the very near future, I wanna atleast finish some of the mixing for this movie.

Script wise as I said, not much is left but I got enough that I can diffenetly start production of a voice cast ASAP.

SO YAY ME!

I pretty much finished up to when the macross cannon destroys the zentradie cruiser and the pods retreat.

Thats 5 of 35 dvd chapters right there.

next segment is Hikaru and minmay in the belly of the macross up till Hikaru ditches roy, claudia and misa to hang with minmay.

That was where I left off originally last year, but no one was doing their lines so I stopped there.

This part will be pretty easy...no action, easy scenes to mix, just alot of dialouge.

When I finish this segment ill be scouting to fill in the bit roles.

I might have a small snip here and there to intice everyone at some given point between misa and Hikaru.

I really like your work on this. My question is what are your plans for this when finished.

MacrossWorld member exclusive purchase :) would be nice.

Hmmm, it's debateable. I've got a CD, Cover and even insert design in the works but it's far from perfect and thought about having someone volunteer to do some awesome work that'd make it a dub exclusive DVD.

This is a cover I had completed as a prototype, course I'd love to see if anyone could come up with something better.

Thanks. Yeah I've watched Clash of The Bionoids cut and uncut and was never impressed. But considering how long ago it was made....I guess it was pretty good for something UK/Australian made.

I'm dabbing in Macross Zero a bit and I got plans to buy a DVD copy of Macross Plus movie edition.

I've finished the music track for Episode 2 of Macross Zero, and almost half way done with the ambience levels. Some of them will need some tweeking and additional sounds to make them feel more complete.

I'd say the most difficult will be the dog fighting in the start of the film.

Which also has me worried about Macross Plus, but that'll be fun to tackle as everyone loves Macross Plus.

I just got my misa to turn in all her lines, and she's got just 1 redo, man she did a fantastic job!

Also working hard on Episode 2 of M0...I just did a big test mix of the battle between Fokker and Ivanov

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRhLIWnpn-U

It's almost perfect, just a few lil touch ups, and vocals. It's possible I will get my original Ivanov back...he's moved recently but he said he really wants to get back into the game.

VERY VERY VERY Close on finishing the audio mix for the first half of the film. I want everyone to know I've been working very hard on this while I'm breaking on DYRL I've been fooling around with Macross Zero.

Right now I've got 5 more minutes worth of footage to mix for the second set of Sound....once that's done and calibrated I gotta add in another set to sort of overlap and calibrate that.

Then I'm going in, checking the first hour without vocals....add any touch ups and sound replacements then calling that area of the film final.

After that's done, I'll be waiting for voices and taking a few weeks rest on DYRL and mixing and maybe work on the script for Episode 3 of Macross Zero when I'm bored.

Mock up mix of the first half of the movie is complete. I'm starting to channel mix the audio so it doesn't come out mono.

This is probably the most time consuming piece of it all cause I gotta select the right channel then move it to the left and then recopy and paste...so you can hear everything thru all speakers instead of just 1.

Then I gotta go thru the second set again and take out the Zentradie steps because I found more accurate ones thanks to episode 12.

Then I need to go back to the first 5 chapters and insert the missing soundeffects I noticed.

Once all of that is finished, I take ALL of the audio and mix it as one big deal and start to work with the vocals I got.

After that's finished, maybe I'll release the first half of the video when all the vocals are together.

nothing to honestly report. Well there are a few things.

The big part is I FINALLY got something that sounds close to the original Zentradie speach VFX.

And my Breetia VA is finally finished, however......I gotta get my ass in gear and ring in the other VA's.

Sounding good, my only comment besides I WILL BE downloding this is the in helmet tinny sound SFX is good but I think could be toned down. Just my thought. But still this is fantastic keep up the good work.

It'll be toned cause the vocals will be cleaned up and that'll improve the SFX's. I'm almost tempted on letting everyone hear the new Zentradie vocals, they're almost spot on to the original.

I did go back to my Chp11-16 sound files, and I did screw up, all but 1 file was MP3, the other was WAV and that'll screw the whole thing up by 1 second. So after fixing that, the SFX's are all back in sync and the video looked better.

Boinger is offering me a chance to get the DYRL Remastered video, I'm tempted, very tempted, but I think I've been decoding DYRL at 29fp/s instead of 24fp/s....I doubt it'll be a problem honestly....I'll have to wait and see.

Well had a talk with some VA's, some just quit because they don't have the time, namely my Minmay VA resigned cause of her neighbors being noisey lil f heads.

Productions at a stand still until I recast a few roles.

Did you find a new Ranka? Or did the VA (please please please) decide she had time to do it again?

She said she would try and stay as Ranka, she really loves the role. But she's not sure if she'd be actually willing to do long dialouge parts compared to singing.

I do have a rather impressive clip coming up at some point....I'm sure people will enjoy it.

I did send out stuff to my new cast members, the cast listing feels alot more complete now then it did sometime ago.

Frontier is cool and all, shame you can't get more help. I'd love to see all the Macross series in dub, even Mac7. I'm with RichyX though, I'd kill for a dub of zero. I'm surprised you can't find enough VA's on here for the male roles. I'd love to be a part of something like that.

There are three types of Male VA's I've come across over the many years I've done this, 1) The type that think they can act, and 2) The ones who can be don't do it and finally 3) the ones who do that you gotta keep using cause they're all you got.

I'm VERY VERY VERY close on the sound mix for Zero episode 2...like if i wanted to push it, I could finish it probably tonight type of close. But I'll have to hold auditions for a few new roles and maybe think about redubbing Episode 1 to keep it consistant.

I saw someone on youtube who was holding auditions for a Zero dub, to be honest, yet not to be rude, I kind of hope their project goes no where. It kind of makes me feel like I'm leaving some legacy behind to the Macross fandom by doing these and hopefully some day get some sort of a recognition for the hard work.

In either case I do have some great news. Lionel, who plays Roy Fokker for Zero and DYRL has just completed his lines for the DYRL fandub. He did a phenomenal job, a lil off script at times but he did great. I'd like to congratulate him for putting up with my BS for the last few months since he's a busy man who's taken acting as a serious job and in the last 3 months has done 2 stage plays.

I think everyone will like who I picked for Lynn Minmay as she's a professional Voice Actress just like the last one.

Infact you guys can check her out for yourselves, she's a good friend and a looker to boot ;) gotta love those cute VA girls.
