It’s nice though, we’ve been swimming in a nearby lake almost every day and I’ve worked from the balcony a lot as well.
At Boords, we started working on a feature that’s been requested a lot over the last few years, and I’m happy to see where it’s going. More news to follow soon I hope!
I’ve been trying to fit in some Sound Design practice when I had some free time, and I’ve managed to do two redesigns that I’m really happy with, one for a lego game and one for some Mass Effect abilities. In both cases, I did not rely on libraries much, and mostly created my own source material for the sounds. This was a success in my eyes :).
It’s already been about a year since I seriously started practicing Sound Design. I’ve been trying to find time here and there to write a little article for my website in which I share some experiences and resources that I found useful. It’s on its way.
It’s nice to see I’ve made progress in the last year. Like with any skill, it’s a good feeling to think: “I made that, and it sounds good!”. Still, plenty to learn I think, and this next month I hope to work on some other parts of the discipline.
Stuff I enjoyed recently

This month my wife and I have finished the audiobook of Terry Pratchett’s Lords and Ladies
