It’s time again for one of my bits & pieces installments. This week has been a bit weird for me but overall positive things are on the horizon.
1. ProRemote Pro Tools Controller Iphone App
This little video came to me via Trans Atlantic VO Maestro David Kersten:
The application goes for about $100 for the pro version and $40 for the Light Edition (just basic control).
It is currently Mac only but they are working on a port for Windows systems.
I had originally asked David to review the products.. (and he might yet do that if he has the time) but until he has any new insight on the experience you can go ahead and check out ProRemote iphone app.
Incidently it doesn’t just control Protools… it also controls:
- Ableton Live
- Apple Logic
- Soundtrack Pro
- Digital Performer
- MIO Console
If any of our readers has bought and tried it please leave a comment with your thoughts on the matter.
2. Axe Cop – Justice at the end of a blade
My friend Bob Souer is narrator extraordinaire to animated Series Axe Cop :
Here’s the first Episode:
I gotta say… its kinda weird… but … no It’s just weird. But then again this is coming from someone who thought that Eternal Sunshine Of the Spotless Mind should be how all movies are made… so.. yeah
3. Taji’s Voice Actor’s Directory Project
Allot of folks have been asking if I will ever put together a directory for voice over talents. I considered it for a while then did the research and found out that it would cost me a few bucks to setup that kind of directory. So I put the idea for to you. Do you guys want me to start a “Voice Actor’s Directory” It would not be free… The basic listing would start at $3 annual and have a featured listing for those who want to pay a little more (well not more than $25). All payments will be done through paypal though.
Anyway If I get some positive feedback regarding the directory then I can possibly start it within 10 days time. If not then I’ll keep it in the backburner.
What are the benefits of this directory? Well increased SEO visibility for you guys. A comprehensive listing where casting agents can go and browse for just the right voice they want. And last … it’s cheap!
4. TVE Skype Conferences
Another idea I’d like to put out there and see how y’all feel about it is possibly having a Skype conference with some of the readers to chat and possibly help someone who might have a problem or listen to anyone’s suggestions for the site. If something like this interests you I guess we can try to arrange for something like that in the weekends when everyone isn’t busy trying to make a living. I think it might be fun actually and I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas. Maybe we can even involve some of the big wigs we know.
Think on it!
