I had to make a video presentation for school this weekend. To level out my voice, I tried using the free TDR Kotelnikov compressor, and it worked fantastically. So if anybody else on this site is making a video presentation, give Kotelnikov a go! (To keep things easy, I used the "warm vocal" preset.)
If it weren't for schoolwork plus my poor time management, I would just go feral and draw fanart for every song in the Spectrum album and throw them all at Circus cuz he fricking deserves it

It says よみがなは全角ひらがなでご入力ください which google translates to Please enter the full width Hiragana. I'm just very confused right now.

With Japanese IME, there is both half width and full width characters, but only for katakana and English letters. There is only one size for hiragana. (Example of full width: アエイオウ, aeiou / Example of half width: アイウエオ, aeiou)The message actually says "Please write the furigana (reading of the kanji) in full-width hiragana".

Because there is only one size of hiragana (Ex: あえいおう), I am confused. Are you trying to write in English letters?

Yeah, I've been writing in english characters. I've had that work on other japanese websites and since this is a purchase I want it to have my real name on it. (I saw somewhere else that some people are using fake names for this sort of thing and that seemed a bit odd to me.
need a super duper quick opinion: do the vocals sound too quite alongside the instrumental???

idk merry be soundin kinda bland here ORZ

Sounds fine here.

Sometimes listening in mono can be helpful when adjusting audio levels (but not always because of phase correlation issues).

Another thing to keep in mind is that human frequency response changes at different volumes, so fine level-adjustments might need to be checked at different levels of loudness.

thanks!!! to my ears i still think the vocals in the beginning here need to be louder, or "pop" more so i guess whenever I finish tuning the rest of the ust i'll give it another shot
My online lectures are audio recordings over PowerPoint presentations that you can view as a video, and some of them are around or over a hour long because my lecturers like to ramble a lot. This last class I need to do is gonna suck.

Hm... jojoba milk isn't milk at all, it's just emulsified jojoba oil. I sat here drafting up an argument for why jojoba milk couldn't be made the same way as almond milk, since jojoba is a nut, but apparently it's NOT a nut, it's just CALLED a nut but is actually a shrub or something? Jojoba oil is extracted from its seed, but is the seed classified as a nut, or just a very large seed, like a plum pit or something? Could you soak a bunch of jojoba seeds overnight, blend 'em, strain 'em, mix in some vanilla, and make jojoba milk that way? Would it taste good? The taste is the main reason peanut milk hasn't really become a thing, in spite of the popularity of peanuts and peanut-based products... of course, there's also the fact that peanuts aren't nuts either...

Peanuts and jojoba seeds would get along. They're both non-nuts given a false moniker. Also apparently peanut oil is a decent substitute for mineral oil in skincare - that is to say, neither are particularly good, but they'll work in a pinch and probably won't kill you. Which is convenient, because peanut oil always comes in these gigantic tubs, so if all other options are exhausted, that's always an option.

I want some roasted peanuts now. But it's been mandated that all business close by 8:30, including the Almighty Walmart, so I'll have to wait until morning. I wonder if salted, roasted jojoba seeds would taste good too...

In conclusion, jojoba is just one big lie. They're called a nut but they're not a nut, jojoba milk isn't milk at all, it's spelled "JOE-joe-bah" but is pronounced "ho-HO-bah" - what the fuck are you, jojoba?

In its defense it’s native to Mexico (according to Wikipedia anyway) so the name might be Spanish. Idk about the rest of it though XP

This week's Cisco networking homework is painful. First lab took 6 hrs, 2nd took 3 hrs, 3rd took 2 hrs, 4th took 3 hrs, 5th took 30 min. Got started with the 6th one while following a 30 min tutorial, but I know it's gonna take 3x longer than the tutorial and I can literally feel my soul shriveling up. I wish the directions weren't so confusing and vague, this is way harder than it needs to be.

The Bili homepage is completely monochrome (like, even my avatar is black and white), and it seems like the only videos they're promoting videos discussing the pandemic. It's eerie.

At the very least, it's normal once you click on your own profile and go through videos and stuff, but it's still depressing.

So another reminder: COVID is serious and you should take it seriously.
I'm looking for software to make an instrumental on. I don't think GarageBand is gonna work well for this.

Does anyone have any suggestions for software?
Went to a job interview today, it went well in my opinion. They said they'll let me know next week if I got the job. It's a landscaping job, but turned out they'd have use for someone with a truck license too, so my chances might be good.
