Title: Keycon Ultimate Typing Test Video
Post by: Lastpilot on Thu, 12 February 2015, 21:15:49
At the meeting center I think it would be awesome if we could find a quiet room (controlled environment) to set up a video/mic booth in and do a compilation of short typing videos on all the different keyboards that show up. I think we would need one skilled volunteer doing their best to type from a ready made script at a consistent force/speed.

I may or may not be able to bring my work sound equipment with me. I will let you know as the date gets closer. I think the chance is likely.

My setup:
2x AT4031
1x PMD661 MkII
Recording stereo; 96,000Hz; 24-bit; WAV
Sample (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBujnX3mG-c)

The video would have the keyboard specs and GH username in the annotations and description :]

Also if are attending and you would like to volunteer camera or mic equipment, post here and we can see what combination would work best.

Post here showing what your interest is for a video like this.  :thumb:

Although I cannot attend Keycon (Why do you have to be so far away? :( ), I think this would be really cool to watch, and to see how different keyboards sound!

I can't go, but I think this project could produce a most helpful reference for us all. I suggest that the volunteer should be practiced in his or her rhythm leading up to filming day. Would be nice to see a number of entry and mid- \level boards as well as the elites.

Perhaps have one person to type out a predetermined couple lines one each board?

I'd be into this and I volunteer as tribute ;)

Not sure if this is still happening, but I'd definitely be willing to type. I have a Canon T4i I could bring too - if so I will need to order a few batteries because I only have two.
