👋 hello friends I need to record my voice and edit and manipulate it for the psychedelic art movie 🎥 I'm making. What software do I need? Free would be best but I want it to be good quality too so maybe I can pay. What do I need?

Just use audacity.

Main thing is the mic.

You could always use a phone.

If you want to export MP3s you need to install the library.

The mic and the space are the most important things. I've just been through this with students making podcasts. Phone recordings usually don't sound good enough to work with unless you're really careful and bit lucky. Laptop mic is worse. If you can borrow a decent USB mic (http://www.bluemic.com/desktop/) or a digital recorder (like a Zoom) it can sound really good. And record in a room where sound doesn't bounce around too much. Furniture, rugs and bookcases help. A quilt hung on the wall if need be... Make sure to record and export to an uncompressed format (wav/aiff) and not mp3 because if you edit and re-save mp3s they progressively more crap. Audacity is good for most things.

It's a bit nasal. You might need more RAM.

Well it's recorded on a laptop mic, played through laptop speakers and recorded on a phone

Will the horse be in your movie?

I like your Instagram, luka. Most people on there forget about the camera on the back of their phone so all you get is human heads. Yours has a few but it's mostly other things which is great.

Ha! Bloggers in the wild. I remember hearing you Woebot and k-punk on that Resonance doc years ago. Somehow no one sounded like I'd have expected.

i have nothing to say on this but just attempting a pointless feat.
