Line remix

Line remix

For my last assignment I chose to do a line remix where you take a line from a movie and remix it, but retain enough of the clip so that others will still know what it is from. ┬áSo, I chose to distort the voices from a line in step brothers.

Make it slowerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Make it slowerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

For my second assignment rated at four stars I chose to slow a song down by 800%. I watched looked at the tutorials on the assignment page and they all said to import your song into audacity and then use the change tempo button to slow down your song. Well I did, and it does not sound like the example that the original person did. My thought is that you may need an external software to smooth the sound as…

Sound Effects Story

Sound Effects Story

I was glad that we had to do this for one of our weekly assignments because I honestly enjoyed creating the clip and making it as real as possible. As I was brainstorming ideas I was thinking about trying to create a sporting event or something along those lines but there would have been to many sounds as it takes place over a long period of time.

Audio Refection

Audio Refection

As I worked my way through the Audio Resources page that was provided for us, I found two very useful and insightful pieces. The first of which was the tutorial on how to use Audacity as I had never used an audio editing program before. The little crash course was enough to get me going which was wonderful. Secondly, and more importantly, the four part video with Ira Glass was quite insightful in creating something wonderful. I jotted down some…
