    Default My First Announcement

    I made my first announcement and added it to the Christmas light system Sunday. The lights are mostly all on for the announcement and I did a little bit of sequencing to coordinate with the speaking portions. I attached my announcement in an MP3 file if any of you would like to have a listen...

    Sounds pretty good, Denny.

    Here is a free promo voiceover for Christmas Carolina that Kevin did for us. You might want to also consider adding it to your show.

    http://www.thedementedelf.com/compon...tmas-Carolina/

    Kevin also did them for some of the other boards, I have DIYC and SCL included in my show.

    I will be ordering a FULL package from Kevin for my show next year.

    John, I think I just saved you some money by doing a voiceover for you. If you need more just ask.

    Wow ! Thanks Al !

    I just added it to the backup SD card, gonna run out and swap the cards in the DirectorMP3 player right now! Then bring in the other SD card, whip up a music bed and a short sequence and lay your voiceover in it, then switch the new and improved SD card back into the display director.

    EDIT: Man, I'm glad I downloaded and saved it to my computer before spending the time on making this reply. The link doesn't seem to work now.

    That was a great voice over, Denny. Seeing the display and hearing it all in person tonight was really cool! Thanks for taking the time to feed me from the firehose tonight. Again, great display! I look forward to talking to you more in the coming weeks and months!!!

    John - I appreciate the link. I had forgot about that Voice over from Kevin. I like doing my own but I will either copy his text, or create my own message for CC.com Although Kevins message sounds awesomely (is that a word?) professional, he says to visit ChristmasCarolina.com to get information about where people can see other displays. However, we have not made our addresses public so not much can be found. I have been using ChristmasLightFinder.com for providing my address and a description (with picture) of the house.

    Al ! What was in that Wav file ? The link does not work any more .. You and John crack me up. I am dying to know what devious message may have been delivered !

    Thanks Scott. Nice meeting you too. We can find some time to chat over lunch at IBM .. and of course here ..

    William didn't turn on those extensions, since they can be used for music.

    Put it in a zip file and upload it and you should be good. Unless he didn't turn that on either...

    Denny - I wish my voice sounded that good. I'm using Kevin's promo in my display. Hmmm....my sone and daughter-in-law are both here right now, maybe I can get them to do a promo for my display.

    William works in the broadcast industry. When I first asked about the MP3 and wave extensions, he indicated he really didn't want to get involved with music sharing here.

    I started to suggest using a zip file to Al, but trust me, you don't want to hear his useless dribble!

    Thank You Al,

    I appreciate your efforts to enhance my display with your voiceovers.

    Just be careful to not overwork your "little brain".
