Oculus Go Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Now that I’ve got Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from fighting with my Oculus Go, I’m going back to using an Oculus Rift. For this first recording, let’s make sure everything looks and sounds good. One problem I can hear is I placed the microphone too close to my mouth. 😦 There’s also at least one serious stereo window edge violation, but hey, you can’t win ’em all, kids…

Stereoscopic 3D, HSBS


Mono Mike

Hopefully, I have solved the mystery of the distorted stereo microphone problem.
This is a 360 3D audio presentation.

Sorry about the audio repeat at the end. I accidentally added an additional track in Reaper, again. I hate when that happens. 😦

BTW, the distortion is still with us. 😦 😦 😦

Ready, Set, Rotate?

Unfortunately, spatial tracking audio isn’t working in this 360 3D video, and I’m not sure why. Perhaps I didn’t properly mix the tracks.
I’m using a Sony ECMCS3 microphone attached to my shirt collar, plugged in to a Tascam DR-05 digital recorder to record my voice. A Zoom H2n microphone in MS/XY four channel mode is positioned just above the 3D camera.

Viewable in 2D or 3D.

My New VR Audio Gag

This is my new VR audio gag. I’m using a Sony ECMCS3 microphone plugged in to a Tascam DR-05 digital recorder to record my voice, and OBS to record the Oculus Mirror on my PC. This way I can have full control over the audio mixdown when creating my 360 3D videos that include VR game or VR app captures.

Viewable in 2D or 3D.

Ring Toss

Are you ready for a game of Ring Toss at the carnival?

Viewable in 2D or 3D.

I’m still looking for an easy and effective way to record VR games and apps. For this one I used OBS, which can simultaneously record the stereoscopic Oculus mirror on a computer monitor, the game’s (or app’s) audio, and the Oculus Rift’s microphone. For future videos I want to also record a 3D selfie video for compositing in post.
