Much appreciated lol

Also, I think this is literally my first post ever, but I’ve been stalking this thread for a while now and everyone’s work is just absolutely fantastic.

Woah, mate…

Just recognised that you were the one who says “We believe in you Poe!” Your delivery is so perfect with all the lines you sent! Have you done voiceovers before?

Also, I can tell you’re from New Zealand, but do I detect some Aussie in you as well? 😄

For real, best voice of the bunch (besides maybe the Mon Calimari guy), his “For Skywalker!” friggin’ owns.

ahhh thank you!!

jonh, I want you to send me some audio. You need to be included in this. It can just be a simple “Ship or crew or person name standing by”. If it weren’t already a ship name with crew to recognize I’d say “the Ghost” would have been perfect.

Poppasketti, FWIW (and I’m afraid the finer details may elude me), I like Option A’s trajectory and lightspeed jump but E’s little boost of the engines partway through. But I’m happy with whatever consensus emerges about the shot. Both are incredible.

Thanks to all with the audio submissions and getting appropriate effects onto them. We’re taking a liberty to expand them to the left and right channels rather than just the center. I like axlanian’s, as he kept my line placements more or less. Personally I don’t want to open with a prominent “9000 crew standing by”, not only because it’s my voice but because it’s a little too meta. So the line is there but it’s a bit buried. Could also be confusing, as though the whole informal fleet is being referred to as the ‘9000 Crew.’

So, the “For Skywalker” line had to be pruned, so further submissions should be check-in’s or other chatter.

And since it came up in Dom’s thread, in my head the primary version of this project will retain Rey Palpatine. This will be the conservative style that has served me well. But, I plan to release a Rey Nobody edit, perhaps at a later time, once that idea is completed by whomever, with an eye toward Dom’s project.

Initiating self-destruct countdown…

You could make up a name for a ship and say “This is _____, standing by” or you could try to come up with a cool pilot quip about how they’re gonna win or something

Maybe you could mention one of the “Easter egg” ships that are featured? There’s the Naboo royal fighters, Black Sun syndicate cruisers, Mandalorian ships, a Hammerhead corvette from Rogue One, Zygerrian vessels…

“Nasty Butler, standing by”

It is a reference to a line (adjusted to fit the idea behind the chatter) … does anyone know it …

As for submissions, I would like to submit a standby line … send this to Hal and or Axlanian who did a great job with it.

The the multiple shouts of “For Skywalker” in the tests by different editors so far sound a bit comical like some of the pilots are not taking it seriously. I’d remove or background the ones that don’t actually sound like a pilot ready for battle, and highlight the ones who did a credible job voice acting. The submissions maybe should be viewed as more of an audition with the best selected.

heil palpatine.

This is the approach I was taking for my mix. I’ve only included two “For Skywalker” clips in English, and two in made-up alien languages. The first one is great, but do you think the second is too comical?

I think that second one is mine! You can cut it for sure if you want. There’s also some other takes with different energy!

I’m “Radiant F7” suprised I made it in,

‘For skywalker’ seems really out of place, might need some tweaking.

This is excellent! Is it in stereo or 5.1? Think it would sound awesome if different voices come in from left and right.

I’ll work on the Knights of Ren clips for you as soon as I get some time.

Yeah, I was thinking about sneaking in a not-audible “I’m naked! heehahawwhaw” 😃

Copy that, Red Rooster.

And yeah, despite it being the original idea, reducing “For Skywalker” to just a couple voices is probably for the best. It might be better to even tone down the alien battle cries about Skywalker somewhat at the end.

And I can’t tell, did you maybe shift around the last check-in before we go to Lando? As it is in that clip it sounds like, and very well may be, the same female voice saying two things in close proximity. I think what was there before sounded more like a phone recording and was a markedly different voice. (I’m using my work computer’s speakers though, so I could be wrong.)

(Gotta go, can’t let the man know what’s up!)

Right now it’s only stereo. The plan is to give Hal three panned files of just the mixed chatter for the L, C and R channels (we decided not to use the surround channels, as the fleet is directly in front of the viewer) so he can lay them on top of his mix, but that will be once we’ve finalized the placement of each line. I’m not messing with the original audio at all, so those files should seat in with the film audio juuuuust fine.

…actually, maybe during the “For Skywalker!” bit, we could try throwing two of them in the surround channels, one each. I don’t have a surround sound setup to test it in, but I’m assuming Hal does. I’ll send him a couple of isolated shouts so he can play with that.

You know what? That might be the same voice twice. It’s got Versio and then the “Minotaur”. I didn’t realize they were the same person doing both clips. Originally, you had a different female voice there, but it was one of the lowest-quality recordings out of all of them, so it sounded out of place right at the end. I moved it earlier and swapped with a better-sounding clip, so yeah, we’ve got two in a row from that person now. I’ll fix that.

I’ll also bring down the aliens at the end so it’s less muddy and report back. No rush, we don’t need your boss to know what the pfargtl you’re up to.

As is the “Minotaur” has a placement such that it is one of the only ones you can really make out clearly… maybe swap in one in that spot with a more recognizable SW connection?

That’s a good idea. Should Inferno Squadron go there?

Mythosaur One wouldn’t be bad.
