I apologize for the title, I wanted something that was the opposite of "VA Pet Peeves" and that's all I could come up with lol.
Anyway, we all know about the VA Pet Peeve thread. But I want to know, what are those little things that put a smile on your face (preferably VA related)? If you're not sure what I mean, I'll post one of mine as an example.
I record lines in Audacity then put them through Adobe Audition then finally Sony Sound Forge (for some reason, Audition won't let me record so I have to use Audacity). But one little thing that always gives me that satisfied feeling is when I'm doing the Adaptive Noise Reduction in Audition and just watching all that unwanted fuzz disappear from the timeline. You see your clip right there, then hit the noise reduction and (in many cases) you see that little fuzz between dialogue just disappear into a straight line. It's a beautiful sight for me. Hopefully you know what I mean.
So, as opposed to VA Pet Peeves, I'd like to hear about those little moments in VAing that give you that little moment of satisfaction. Maybe it's finally finishing mixing a project, turning in the last of your lines, turning in your lines really early, or getting a good critique. No wrong answers here. Let's just all be happy!
