Jack crumpled the dirty paper and tossed it onto the desk. “So the test sample was no different than regular water, chemical composition H2O. Two parts hydrogen to one part oxygen. Which puts me right back where I was yesterday. What will happen when the spell is reversed remains unknown.”
“Bradley can figure out what will happen.” Nessa set the second page on the desk. She picked up the paper Jack had flung down and smoothed out the crumpled ball. “I’m sure other tests are available.”
Jack leaned against the office door. “What if this is the only test? Or worse, what if all the tests come back with the same results?”
We’re new to the Audacity, the sound program we use for our audio recordings, and to sound effects in general. These are our thoughts on the current episode.
Recording. We recorded this segment in three takes, after three practice runs with the microphone off.
Technical. Yay! Got the specs right this week. We moved closer to the mic so the original recording was louder, and did the job.
Comments. That little extra something has been missing from our audio presentations lately. A voice actor told us we needed to put more energy into the recordings and offered a few tips for doing that. What a difference!
Story changes. Major changes to the written version this week. After all these updates, who would believe we still missed mistakes. 🙁
