    Hi, I would like to make a speaker system where voices seem to move around an area. As people walk up the driveway voices travels around them. Back in the bad old days I had an 8 track player and quadraphonic speaker system that played Dark Side of the Moon. I always loved it. Today I'm...

  8. Atmosphere Effects: Need a Dolby ATMOS or DTS:X special effect sound file

    Halloween Props
    For our neighborhood haunted hay ride, I plan on staging my guest in the garage as they wait for their turn. I have plenty of speakers plus a spare subwoofer to setup a 7.1 sound system. So my idea is, just turn off the lights and play a short sound effect file with scary sound objects moving...
  9. Electronic/Software: Convert VSA routines to LOR

    Halloween Props
    I heard of this out there somewhere, but didn't pay too much attention because I didn't need it. This year, I am helping someone with their haunt and it looks like this might be needed.

    I made this for a customer and figured I'd share it here too. This is the basic layout for a wiper motor mount. I know for sure it will work with a Fright Props or Monster Guts motor. .0625 = 1/16 inch :) I saved this 1:1 from a CAD file but I am not sure how well it will scale to print so...
  13. Electronic/Software: Another Micca Speck question

    Halloween Props
    So I was so happy to get my Micca Speck. I now can leave it with the projector and not have to keep burning new DVDs every time I buy a new projection, or worse yet leaving my computer attached to the projector. BUT No matter what file format I am using, currently tried MP4 MKV, and AVI, I...
