  1. How many less than 5-star orders have you done?
  2. Welllllllllllllllll that's definitely their (Digidesign and Avid's) opinion. I have been using it for a SUPER long time, probably since 2002. And let me tell you it's been a rough ride. They had excellent marketing, even coining the term "industry standard" for themselves. I still use it daily, and it's basically the only one I do use on the regular because I'm so experienced. But that doesn't make me blind to the fact that every time someone else came out with a feature, Pro Tools stole it for the next release. Only since they moved away from the RTAS format of plugins has it been working the way it always should have, and even then it was a buggy mess until the last update to version 11.
  3. Here's my secret weapon. Mouth moisturizer. I've tried a few and the one that seems to destroy any mouth noise or clicks for me is Biotene brand Dry Mouth. I got "hooked" on the stuff when I was doing radiation treatment in my face and my mouth was super dry. My skin was too, I was falling apart like a zombie no matter the amount of moisturizing I did. But I'd since kept up with the Biotene because it's a life saver.
  4. An invoice is a receipt for goods purchased or services rendered - past tense. A quote or estimate is for giving an amount upfront. But either way, happy to hear you got it sorted. I do my own invoicing since a lot of my business isn't over Fiverr, but I can recommend you draw up a spreadsheet that calculates totals and the taxes you pay.
  5. Electric Light Orchestra is my all time fav. No country, religious, or rap music for me.
  6. I'm AWFUL. I got diagnosed with a non cancerous brain tumour in 2017, and they cut my face off (so that they wouldn't damage it with scars), removed the tumour through my forehead, stapled my face back on, and I looked horrible for 14 months. Then I got my strength back, went back to work mixing live audio, started a new job as an electrician so that I could have more time to start a family. Then late 2020 they said it had been growing back as cancer this time, so I've been doing treatments all this year and I swear the medication is worse than the disease.
  7. Not ha ha funny, but I just had a client who thought me recording a voiceover meant I was going to compile their video with my voiceover and mix the music in that they didn't provide. I also mispronounced an acronym they spelled out for me phonetically and then recorded themselves saying it right - which was how I said it in the first place. I re-recorded the line and then they were happy with it 🤷‍♂️
  8. Hello! Most days I get up, check my emails, then head on over to Fiverr to check the BR section. I get a reasonable amount of business this way. I live in Canada, but when I send my offer I'm not sure what currency things are displayed to the buyer are. For example, it will say that their budget is $6.67 CAD, Does that mean, if I'm going for their whole budget, that I should put in $6 or would that translate to me asking for 6 USD, which would be $7.69 CAD, or over their budget?
  9. I am from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
  10. Thanks, but that's not really helpful to my question.
  11. I was on the app this morning and pushed the withdraw button. It says I have to do my first withdrawal from my computer first, but I have done many already. Is this broken or am I doing something wrong? It doesn't really matter, I am on a computer so much there's no problem pushing the button there. I'm just curious in case I ever have a need for operating from the app.
  12. I however find it frustrating that the customer has the goods and they can't be bothered to push the button to complete the order in 3 days...
  13. I can't handle hearing "I'm bored" or "there's nothing to eat" any longer! Filming starts tomorrow, and even though we scheduled it weeks ago I'm scheduled a rainstorm which will definitely add to the atmosphere of the outside scenes (of which there is only 1...)
  14. Yeah I'll post it when it's done! So far we're happy with how it is turning out!
