the most important thing i’ve learnt in all my years is that it is a terrible idea to drink from a cup while lying down
I gave in and made my ask tag “Let Me Ashe You A Thing” only because so many people asked me about it. I did it a week or two ago, but I never really made a post about it. So. There ya go.
1. When I started singing, I had a whole, like, ten notes to my name. It was not cute. Only with really consistent work did I extend it and even now, a lot of songs still sit in a really weird place in my voice, but oh well. Always feel free to change the key of instrumentals you’re using to fit more comfortably in your range. There used to be some weird stigma about that, but it doesn’t make sense. If you can’t sing something because it was written in a strange place, CHANGE THE KEY. No need to strain yourself.
2. When you get a little deeper into this pond of recording, you may want to invest in a more expensive microphone and maybe even an interface, but there’s no requirement there. Most of us started off with $10-15 microphones and it served as a nice way to get your bearings and decide if this is truly what you want to do. No point in spending a bunch of money on something that you will soon give up. I didn’t upgrade from a headset mic until I had been recording for maybe two-three years.
3. Video editing is hardly a big deal at all. A picture with some text over it can be all you need, and that requires just a few steps with either Windows Movie Maker or iMovie (for Mac users). Easy to do right in. I’m personally not a huge special effects video making kinda guy. I’ve always been sort of simplistic. There are people who do a lot more and maybe you can ask some of them. Sometimes doing more can be distracting, though. So keep that in mind.
Hope I could help!
screenshot for you, just paste the sm# in the outlined red section (I usually ignore all the other checkboxes but I know some things you can only do [like not letting anyone else download an mp3/video or uploading HD and getting a lot more file space] if you have some kind of premium account. The multilingual section only has English, Chinese and Japanese but international users can probably translate your titles/descriptions for others to see)
Hope it helps, thanks for your time and have fun in the nico community as well :) (also you could just tweet the nico link to the composers as well, most composers do have twitters and check covers every now and then :D
Wowowow! Thank you so much! <3 Posting this for anyone that might also need to see this!
;AAAAA; WHAT A SWEETHEART! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LISTENING!
;) Oh, I see what you’re getting at.
THIS PERSON IS 17 AND HAS NEVER KISSED ANYONE.
Ah, thank you! But, no, I don’t really voice act.
