I’m excited to announce that I’m starting a YouTube series called Marc’s Hand Review! In this YouTube series I’ll review hands that I’ve played and give my analysis and opinion on the hand that I’m reviewing. All the hands that you see from this series will be hands that have been played on Replay Poker. Be sure to check out the first episode of the series below!
Since it’s the first episode I know their are some Improvements that have to be made (Like the audio quality. Don’t worry I’m already working towards a solution for that! In the next episode the audio should be clearer and easier to hear.and the commentary can be better.)
I hope to release a new episode of this series once or twice a month or whenever I have the time to record.
I hope you all enjoy it and thanks for watching!!!
He had a hand here, it wasn’t a bluff. He’s an A or a 2 away from a full house (although another 2 wouldn’t help him as it’d give you quads, not that he knows this yet), and a 4 and a 5 away from a wheel straight. It didn’t go his way, here, and he should have been more cautious than to jam when you raised here. He got a terrible flop, you got a great one. He shouldn’t have limped, and got you out of it before the flop. He could have been shoving with 33 or 32 or even A2 and had you beat.
Thanks for your support! For screen capture I’m using a program called Apowersoft Free Online Screen Recorder. The reason why I’m using this software to screen capture is because with other screen recording software I’ve used for past projects, the video and audio would be horribly out of sync and would be difficult to edit to try to get them synced, though that might have something to do with my Laptop being 7 years old. .
So far with Apowersoft’s screen recorder I haven’t experienced any problems and it’s easy to use and there’s no time constraints or watermarks which I like.
For editing I’m using a program called VideoPad Video Editor. They have a paid version and a Free version which is what I’m using. If you get the paid version your really just getting a few extra affects that I wouldn’t have use for. The software isn’t hard to learn and once you get the hang of it it’s easy in my opinion.
For audio I do plan on going with Audacity starting on my next episode. I’ve been watching some how to videos to learn how to edit out background noise and it looks fairly simple to do that from the videos I’ve watched so I’m hoping it works for me to make the audio more clear so there’s no difficulty hearing what I say.
Good audio starts with capturing good audio. Correcting it after the fact, while necessary, isn’t the best. I use an Audio Technica AT2020, and love it.
I got a big tote, lined it with acoustic foam, then put my mic on an anti vibration mount, and added a pop filter. This makes a nice mini-sound booth that blocks a lot of noise and is well suited to the kind of voice-over work you are doing.
First, I’d just like to thank everyone for their feedback and support! It really means a lot to me. Last night I recorded some test audio to try out the editing software. The edited sound really didn’t make a difference quality wise so I think the best solution is to get a new microphone though it might take me awhile to get one.
As of now I’m planning on recording a new episode hopefully Tuesday if my schedule works out. If I am able to record Tuesday, I expect the new episode to be ready later in the week. I am going to keep this thread updated and post new episodes here.
When you do start shopping for a mic, I would highly recommend SPGs advice of the Audio Technica AT2020 .
Back in the day when I owned a small recording studio, it wasn’t unusual to pay well over $500 for a large diaphram mic of that quality that meets those specs.
I bought an AT2020 for my son to record vocals for his music and we were both blown away with the quality.
The room you’re in is also evidently pretty live so if you can’t move to say a walk-in closet (with hanging clothes) you will want to try to isolate your new mic with something like the DIY project SPG mentioned…or if you find yourself with a little more cash, I’d go with something like this.
I also highly recommend Sweetwater because anything you buy there, they can provide low/no interest credit or choose the option to pay using a debit card and stretching the total over 3 monthly payments with a $10 processing fee.
Good stuff my friend glad to see you going for it!
Bit of advice, I wouldn’t call out the players names I would call them by position.
I was surprised to see the SB had pocket aces and put him on an over pair after he shoved just didn’t think it would be aces lol. If I had the pocket rockets I couldn’t help but min raise (without being results oriented).
I have selected the next hand I’m going to review and have taken some notes on things to cover about the hand. I plan on recording it in the morning and hopefully it will be ready to upload Wednesday or Thursday.
