The CreateNow Tour Comes To A Close: But First…VO Recording Technique Guide

The last show of this tour is about to begin (literally, in :30 minutes, as I sit in the hallowed halls of the 601 Townsend building in San Francisco)

As part of tonight’s final presentation, I’m doing a little spot on Voice Over mixing/sweetening, and thought this doc that I created for MAX last year might be a good resource.

Voice Over Recording & Microphone Guide

Essentially, it’s a guide to the various types of microphones and things to know/look out for when choosing the right mic for the job, whether it’s web-type audio, vocals (music) or anything in between.

I’ll be writing a wrap-up of the mega tour in the coming days, so till then…

3300+ CreateNow Attendees Can’t Be Wrong! (an Elvis reference)

The word is definitely out; and while the word (according to Beatles legend) is love (and they’re right, it is), the *other* word is Creative Cloud; and our Adobe friends in Europe clearly love it.

Following the successful shows in Warsaw and Oslo, the excitement and enthusiasm continued as we made our way thru London, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Helsinki. What was most interesting to us was the universal acceptance of the Creative Cloud and a genuine interest in how it differs from the (previous) ‘boxed product’ experience. Fortunately, we came armed and ready with all the details about the new applications, features and services that we’ve added to the Creative Cloud (since our official launch last May) and that momentum continued as we were able to showcase several new PS features (as of February) and most recently, the addition of Photoshop Touch on the iPhone and Android mobile devices.

A sincere thanks must go out to all of the attendees across the globe, as well as our many colleagues who helped put these incredible events together. This tour really exceeded our expectations, and we’re just so very honored to be able to bring all of these incredible, creative puzzle pieces, all together under one roof. The show continued on (back in the US) in New York, Boston, Seattle, Austin and San Diego with more stops coming! Create now!

On our one day off (in Oslo) we took in some sightseeing...and ice.

‘Create Now’ European Tour Kicks Off With Capacity Crowds

Yesterday marked the first stop of the European ‘Create Now’ Tour and as always, Warsaw proved to be an inspired, awesome crowd with literally every seat in the house filled (and several dozen sitting in or along-side the aisles).

Covering many of the new features brought to Creative Cloud over the past few months, Rufus, Paul and I had the opportunity to showcase new content (all travel themed; largely based around Africa, for which I naturally leveraged even more Sabi Sabi footage) covering workflows for mobile (including the recently released Photoshop Touch for the iPhone and Android devices), design, web and video.

The next show is in Oslo on Monday, and we simply can’t wait to hit the stage again and spread some Create Now/Creative Cloud/CS6 love…and that’s a lot of love to spread!

I just wanted to give a big thanks to all of our fans and users who turned out for the event and made it so special. We always leave so inspired, it truly makes us yearn to return!

Here’s a few snaps from the show. See you on tour, somewhere in the world!
