The Off-Topic Thread


Essentially another way of saying one person is not the center of the universe…

I.e. outside a few select ppl not many will give a shit if a person has to go to work whilst having hemorrhoids and is having a bad day…

I feel like sometimes I speak some wierd indecipherable language that no one understands…or maybe I just suck at expressing ideas… lol




i hope @dj0xygen is out there delivering ventilators and oxygen to covid patients

<<<<What’s your favourite home recording tip? What do you wish someone had said when you started out?



Very interesting


Never heard the term “Foley” artist. That’s fascinating! Bit of a mighty fucking ear trigger on the eating/crunching sounds though, yikes.

Those dudes have pretty awesome jobs.


Really, you’ve never heard of Foley? It’s in all movies and shows. We did a bit of that in my Surround Sound class when I was getting my B.S. Pretty fun stuff.


I just never heard the term! I always though it was just “sound designers”. I didn’t know this practice itself was exclusive to its own thing. super cool.

Field recording on crack


in college i took a foley class and there was a room with a sand pit, a bunch of weird instruments and toys for recording in. really fun class but foley is no joke, we all take that stuff for granted.
our final project was to pick from a selection of silent clips and record your own foley on it and i got the trailer for assassins creed 2 or something and it was of a giant battle and getting that ensemble battle/crowd sound is super tricky. the entire trailer seemed weirdly quiet cuz i couldnt quite pull it off.


We did something like that in my Surround Sound class, except we were doing foley, ADR, and music. Initially I was in a group with this girl in my class, but I brought in a pirated copy of Knowing to do the plane crash scene, and my instructor noticed the dialog and video were out of sync, also it was a really busy scene, and with only the two of us in the group, we got split and merged into other groups. He also gave an announcement to the class to not pirate movies lol which was most probably because he knew it was pirated, but I ended up working on a scene from Riki-Oh! with another group, but it turned out pretty good.
