    It's hard to focus listening to one of those voices:) A video is really interesting though:)
  • brueffer


    ge5sterne translation = nuts :D
  • xLadyFx


    Wtf. Badly dubbed by 1 person. :(
  • xLadyFx


    Russian terminator indeed.

    Get to tha choppa!
  • tMHs


    wtf take it off, how can you upload it with that sound?!
  • chrsbckr75


    no offense, but I am not sure if that voice is 4 real. Or it is the Kickoff 4 some really funny episodes.

    Seems like TeddyKGB is giving us some lecture here.
  • SvenBe


    He guys,
    this episode of Midstakes Magic has been dubbed by P0rkus, who frequently dubbs videos for us and so far only has received outstanding feedback. Therefore I can not really understand the complaints about this video, unless you of course do not like russian dialects.
    We will advise P0rkus to use a less obvious accent in the next videos.
  • p0rkus


    This time I had to use a different program + different mic setup because I had a lot of problems dubbing this particular video. (there is usually more personality involved but this time I had a lot of problems dubbing so I wasn't exactly terribly happy)

    Usually, the responses have been good for my other setup: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/video/22283

    Would you guys like me to try my usual setup which should be better, or just use my standard voice + my standard voice but deeper with voice mod.
  • p0rkus


    What seems to be the problem here exactly, just so it's clear to me. Accent too forced? Difficult to understand? Sound quality too low? Does the video I linked above solve that problem?

    Thanks in advance!
  • Southofheaven


    hahahahaha this is funny as shit
  • xLadyFx


    P0rkus, are those 2 voices ur own or different people?

    One sounds normal, and good understandable. The one with the accent is really funny, but makes it harder to understand and stay focussed. It's like
    Borat doing The Terminator with Russian accent.

    The sound is fine.
  • Coffisen


    I liked it, and the "voice" keeps me focus actually! Would like to see more videos likes this. Great

    Borat doing The Terminator with Russian accent.

  • ruuuic


  • Antonioull



    really cool vid thanx
  • BDog


  • p0rkus


    #18 both are my own (the British accent is real, the Russian isn't ;). Thanks for clarifying - could you tell me if the Russian accent is easier to stay focused on in the video I linked (I believe it isn't as strong there)?
  • Shevtshenko


    imo the sounds are fine. The other isn't the easiest to understand but then again, it's better to have a clear difference between the voices than to do it with similar voices and make it tougher to understand which one is speaking. Tbh, i thought there were two different persons making the voices.

    And fwiw, the content was really good. One of the best videos i've seen on this site for quite a while.
  • Shevtshenko


    I wonder if we can get answers to play-related questions from siete/ge5sterne by posting here? Or anywhere except the German forums?
  • Shevtshenko


    One more thing to add:

    you should always mention when the original video was recorded just so that viewers know how up-to-date the info is. This is even more important in these dubbed videos.
  • Fil1987


    #32 +1

    Actually p0rkus just don't try to be too much Russian:) Speak with normal accent and add mod to it - that should work, cause voices will be totally different, but the accent wouldn't make ppl laugh:)
    Video itself is very interesting:)

    P.S. I'll listen to this video everytime I want to cheer up:D
  • thcfugii


    c'mon pls.. this voice is annoying
  • xLadyFx


    P0rkus, yes in the other video it seems better. The accent isnt too strong. Must be difficult to create another voice I guess.

    But ur work is greatly appreciated with those quality content. So dont get us wrong.
  • xLadyFx


    Porkus, yes in the other video it sees better.

    Ur work is greatly appreciaed with the dubbing of that quality content, dont get the wrong picture.
  • CollinMoshman


    Personally I think the voice is awesome, and very enjoyable listening to the dialogue between the two.
  • MfGOne


    trololo fake russians
  • chrsbckr75


    great work Porkus. I don't care about the Poker-Content. Just laughing my ass off about the dubbing.

    I want that tool too.....
  • kiromanAAKK


    I think u r take to serious what I believe is just kidding from the guys above!

    The videos is awesame and very useful (imo btw) and I really don't see if a voice what ever sound like (tough, strong soft hard sexy ...) can in any shape or form do any effect on what should be the interest and the matter in this occasion, that's poker and just poker!

    We are here to learn poker and crash the limits and not to same sort of singing or voice contest, in all sincere honesty! ;)
  • p0rkus


    I just want it to be understandable (not just funny), but thanks :) I will be using the same setup I used in the other video I linked for the next Midstakes magic video, and we will see if you guys like it :). Once again, thanks for the feedback
  • ipeaceonu


    Content of the vid is very understandable, accent gives the vid a lighter tone than some dull monotone coaches voices that are out there. We, the english speaking community, would never see this vid if it wasn't for p0rkus so give him a break.
  • GrandmasterFleisch


    Good job. Nothing more to say there :)
  • T3rMiT3


    great video!
  • gadget51


    Lol, just lol
  • gadget51


    I couldn't get vid to go full screen and with my eyesight it made it awkward to see some of the details of what was going on.
  • gadget51


    ah, np Youtubed it, sry.
  • p0rkus


    You need to click on the little gear and select the highest quality, otherwise the video is very blurry
  • globalcash


  • Millsyuk


    Hahaha 5 *s

    Please don't change it for future vids, great fun.
  • w34z3l


    insyderr is pretty next level imo
  • w34z3l


    btw, imo, the dubbing voices were a little bit weird at first, but after 15 mins I now love it and don't think it needs changing.
  • EuanM


    Audio is perfect quality, quite clearly. The only difficulty I can understand is non-native speakers not picking up the forced-Russian/English accent, but should be fine after listening for a few minutes we will begin to understand more as exposure to the accent increases, it's important to clearly make the two voices audibly separate if there are multiple coaches in the Video in my opinion - if the accents we're similar I think much of the dialogue would not make sense as it's not easy for the viewer to recognize the difference.

    Big thanks for all the Feedback everyone - keep it coming by all means!
  • LooserSR


    i thought its 2 guys :) both voices clear and easy to understand, no problem
  • p0rkus


    That's my real British accent, only the Russian is fake )
  • Torchman


    Are u guys serious to upload such crap? German / english version with original voices plz ....
  • p0rkus


    You can watch the original version in the German pokerstrategy video section
  • naudanauda


    more more more of that ... every day and every night!!!!!!!! :P
  • Zakumii


    Really appreciate you dubbing these for us, thanks mate!
  • yomatiyo


  • cashius8clay


    could somebody reupload this vid pls, there is apparently zero sound anymore
  • hulk86


  • Haldoguzo


    bravo One of the best videos i've seen on this site for quite a while.
    I speak English very poorly, but I understand 85% of the accent. General does not matter who care, let him hear an accent video sashes I speak English rather than video poker.
  • gp00053


    Great video. Don't worry about voices. Who gives a sheet. The thought process is excellent and that's what we should be concentrating on
  • astiastiasti

  • Jevons

  • brunouru
