Testing 1-2-3

July 4, 2006 4:55 PM

A number of mic in tracks are people testing their microphones, and since many of those people use "testing 1-2-3" for their mic checks, I decided to make a waltz out of them. By the way, the guy singing "testing 1-2-3" is not pitch-shifted. He sang the phrase a few different times in his mic in track, and I cut-and-pasted his 1's, 2's and 3's to make a semi-melody.

who knew testing mics could be so melancholy?

Love it. Especially the slightly exasperated guy in the middle:
"Why am I doing this? This is stupid. I have no idea whatsoever of how this is supposed to work. I don't know how to erase either, so maybe this is not such a good idea."
I sometimes find old four track cassettes and Samplitude projects of myself sounding exactly like this. Doood, I know how you feel.
Anyway, nice song, great idea.

Genius. And strangely catchy.
