    S.O.P.H.I.A.

    Review: Astro A40 TR Headset + MixAmp Pro TR screenshot

    Sound quality has come a long way from the beeps and boops of the early generations of gaming. Epic, modern AAA games require soundtracks, sound effects, and sound mixing that rival Hollywood's best. Last year's every-award-winner God of War has some of the best sound design I've ever encountered in a piece of gaming. Red Dead Redemption 2 is another title from 2018 that excels at using sound to build its world.

    But modern gaming isn't just about the sound produced by whatever title we're playing. More and more, the sounds we make play a bigger role in the industry. Whether you're a streamer who is yelling racial epithets over gameplay to the delight of 12-year-olds or a member of a Fortnite team who needs to coordinate with the other players, balancing our voices with the sounds of the game is something of a tightrope act. With the A40 TR Headset and MixAmp Pro TR from Astro Gaming, that tightrope has been replaced by a rope bridge.

      My "space flower and rainbow" pic were painted by my gf in the 80s. We're still friends, I was at her wedding in 2019.
       
      From 1960-something to about 2000, the rainbow flag was the all inclusive symbol of acid freaks and usually dead heads (Grateful Dead). At the turn of the century, our flag and motto were usurped by the gay community, which was mildly awkward. I don't care at all if someone is homosexual, but my pic is the old school hetero acid freak flag for any who contemplate these things and wonder. 
       
      Note the diamond stars: "shall we go, you and I, through the transitive nightfall of diamonds" -Dark Star, Grateful Dead.
       
      Happy gaming!
