These videos are really good and interesting, but is there any way to make the music less loud and the commentary louder? It’s kind of hard to listen to sometimes because they are both at about the same volume…anyway, just a friendly suggestion: nice work!
Thanks for the feedback. I’m still figuring it out. The music is so low…but I guess thats not really the main thing. I will see what I can do!
