Nick Summer Packaging

Summer is here and it's time for the Fresh Beat Band, Dora, Bubbleguppies and all your friends at Nick Preschool. This is the first in a series of spots we mixed as part of the Nickelodeon re-packaging coming this summer.

On a separate note – Dora makes so much money. When is Nick going to hire a decent composer for Dora and stop spitting out cr*p content. Never mind the low budget animation. Really. Please.

This is the SFX only split.

I really enjoyed having time to experiment with the sound on this spot. The producer really wanted to give it a summery feel and to underscore the sparkle with all the lens flares. I found some nice bell-like synth sounds in Digidesign's Xpand2 synth and played a bunch of high chords and arpeggios. Then I flipped them backwards, ran them through the TL Space Reverb, flipped that backwards, ran them through again, flipped, bussed, verbed some more and there ya go. I used a nice big cavernous church reverb. I love TL Space. The true stereo long tail convolution reverb sounds awesome.
