Longer versions?

Longer versions?

You may find the term “longer verions” when you explore the Sound Library, but what is that?

All the recordings in AK IN KK can be categorised as 2 versions, basic version and longer version, depends on the length of the recording.

Basic versions are free* to download and usually have no more than 3 minutes of time.

Longer versions are uncut continuous version of the basic versions with longer time, their prices depend on the length and sound quality. There is NO Crossfade nor Looping in the longer versions.

*Basic version files are free for mp3 and wav4416 file types only.

 

Reason behind

Somehow there is difficulties to record continuously without artificial noise, as there are pretty many hikers in Hong Kong everyday. As no editing nor crossfade could be applied to the recording, all I could do is to wait, as if there is no people passing by. With this reason and the cost of managing the website, some unlooped longer versions of recorded are charged to download. You can still download some free recording under 3 minutes.

 

聲音存庫搵聲既時候,可能你會見到「有更長版本」呢個Term,今日我係度簡單解說一下。

AK IN KK既錄音可分為2種,基本版本同更長版本,分別在於長度。

基本版本通常少於3分鐘,用家可以免費*下載。

更長版本是基本版本的延續,並無經過剪接 (Crossfade) 或循環 (Looping),價格因長度和音質而改變。

*只有mp3 and wav4416 檔案類別的基本版本為免費下載。

 

點解要分2種版本?

係做呢個Project之後,我發現香港行山既人真係有好多,就算我平日上山,都會有好多人經過。

錄音原則係避免避免到既人為聲音,例如有人行過傾計,係唔剪接唔Crossfade既前題下,我只可以等同祈求咁岩果日無乜人行圞度。慢慢發覺要連續無人經過咁錄到長時間都有難度,所以基於呢個成本決定將3分鐘以上既錄音定為課金物,當然每段我都會有一個3分鐘內既免費基本版本做出尼。

另外經營網頁、照顧器材同上山都有成本,我唔相信做到自給自足,但總要有D收入來源,如果你需要長時間唔Loop既錄音,就要課少少金了。當然唔排除之後我會開放D更長版本比大家。
