Oh my god
does anyone remember when i used to be all about these guys
Ahh thank you haha! I’m actually a novice at anything audio-related myself. I feel like I actually have a strange amount of knowledge on the subject considering how little I dabble in it anymore but even then, it’s very little.
I just used Garageband on my Macbook Pro. I had to look up audio files and go through them all one by one, picks the ones i liked, and then start building with them. I toyed with audio and cutting up bits of speech and so forth. Sometimes I would try to get a sentence out of a couple of different audio clips because the words sounded good together but sometimes you just got to give it up for the sake of quality because the inflections are too noticeably different.
Tips I would give in creating an audio file with multiple tiny clips is to be patient and experiment a lot. But try to stay organized because it’s easy to start losing track of files and it makes cleaning up that much more difficult haha. And don’t be afraid to give up on trying to make something work when it just doesn’t work. Don’t force it to happen. In the end, your listeners won’t know what’s missing; they’ll just hear quality. I had a good extra minute or so planned out, for example, but I gave it up and I think that was an important thing to do. Editing yourself is important!
Other than that, just have fun haha. It’s a good way to pass the time and get to know the basics of a program. Thank you for listening!
I’m not a graphic designer, but here’s a mockup of how I’d like the Tumblr dashboard to look.
1.) Replace the words “liked your post” etc. with the actual like/reblog icons. There’s no purpose why that info should be shown twice to the user.
2.) Disregard the words “your video” “your audio” etc in the notification. That info is already highlighted to the user from the post/video icons on the far right.
3.) Remove the like/reblog icons from the user’s avatar so we can see their full picture.
4.) Make the font slightly brighter so it contrasts better with the dark background.
Aside from visually looking better, this would be so much easier to read, understand, and click on links. The like/reblog icons would even separate the username from the blog post title so that it wasn’t just a long string of jumbled text. This solves everything.
I am actually very supportive of this, i think it’s all great. I also think replacing ‘your video/audio/post’ etc is a good touch because it’s not always YOUR audio and so forth. I don’t think anyone is fooling anyone with that (lol) but it’s a nice touch and a sort of nod towards intellectual property awareness, you know? I’m overthinking things, sorry kdgdfg
Anyway, I find this more visual approach to be a good one. I might even suggest making it a settings option. Some people are sure to prefer the words whereas folks like me would prefer the pictures/icons. Lighter lettering should definitely be an all-around thing, though.
