Oi Guga, coincidências !

Quote
I´m surprised you work at Globo. What a coincidence :)

Yes, this is how I earn my life. I´m a music producer there for about 13 years. I have mainly done "Novelas", which are the top products of Globo. Hard work....

Quote
opened a company for video restoration and online old/classic video rental (and eventually audio restoration and in the future, dubbing :) )

Nice! You should send me the link, I´d love to know more about it. You may want to know I own a professional recording Studio here in Rio de Janeiro.

Quote
New producers or directors working at dubb studios are simply ruining the old audio of the good old days of dubbing in Brazil

I totally agree. Another point is they manage to completely spoil the original mixing balance between the voiceover and sound tracks.

I sent some of my movies from my private collection to TV companies like Rede Brasil so they could at, least try to put them in air again.

My wife works at CANAL CURTA as a financial manager (check it out on NET and others). It´s a good place for such films, I could link you up with the guys there through her.

I´m trying to make some filters related to video edition in order to restore whatever is possible.

Aham, I´ve been following your posts!

So, it´s asm joining people!

You know, last year I went to Belo Horizonte for a Conference and met with some people working on preservation of old tapes. They are doing a good job there.

Hutch, try and stay as long as you can in the midi world. Everything you do after going to audio is degenerative.

Things like speeding up or slowing down and so forth. Do it in the midi world.

RE : The comments on the new generation making a mess of mixing older tracks, when you grew up with a range of music you knew exactly what it sounds like and when you get some jerk full of loco weed re-mixing old tracks, they add far too much bass to it drowning out the vocals and middle to high frequency sound sources. This happened with the conversion from some original vinyls to CD and you would have to try and remix the tracks to get them to sound right.

Another factor that is a pest, dynamic range may sound like a good idea but with most sound reproduction equipment, the low frequency rumbles the speakers and you have trouble hearing the high frequency and/or low volume. One of the things I have had to do with editing so many converted MIDI files is adjust the volume so that the amplitude doe not cause clipping and turn up the low volume sections so you can actually hear them. Fortunately this is not a big deal with a wave form editor.

I have yet to find a decent MIDI editor, I have one but it looks horrible. Having an analogue brain, I am much more at home with wave forms that digital music formats.

Real nice music.

Very relaxing.

It would be good for a self-hypnosis tape.
Take care,

they sold out music maker here few years ago,cheap in a electronics mall, I got it, but I Have no skill, but to sing and make texts,sometimes I practice singalong japanese music from anime
would be nice if you get me some advice to make more than just play with recorded whistle adding reverb and echo
it would be nice sample whistle and use it
@Guga
why you dont abandone dubbing and go subtext?
1:you can practice english while watching tv
2:if you are so skilled you can enjoy englishspoken movie,without subtext, its time to put subtext to a new language

Alex,

Something I did get up was 10 out of 10 restored Montoya tracks, between Warner and Sony music they tried to claim every track but I ran objections to every claim and beat them as they never owned the 10 tracks. It took over 6 months due to the American DMCA.

I am always busy, whats new ? Up to 108 64 bit library modules, the last being a character range stripper using a table. I finished the Montoya track about 3 months ago and with some humour, beat the greedy bastards, just that it took months to get them all posted due to Youtube kissing the arse of Warner and Sony music.
