Good sounds are hard to hear


There's some great sound libraries out there, and there's some great sound libraries out there that are just too hard to actually buy sounds from. It's also hard to find the quality unique sounds you're after unless you can afford to pay someone (a sound designer) to accidentally produce the sound you expect. you're going to end up with something that sounds like any other... sound.
So, the sounds produced for Lylian are being created raw, from one of these.

An Olympus LS-10 Linear PCM Stereo Portable Recorder. It's truly amazing the sounds you can collect from everyday life. And how one thing can sound like something completely different. A lot of fun too!
Lylian really requires unique audio in foley, and this is the hand held tool that's helping us get it.
Yay to gadgets!
