So I thoroughly enjoyed this assignment.^^

This Assignment Bank project is titled “Voice Over a Beat” (2.5 stars)

I used the Soundation website to make a beat and then took the clip of Sally Slaughterhouse saying her name from The Smooth & Spooky Variety Hour and added it in places.

I told her before that I loved how sing songy it was so I thought it would be fun to incorporate it into collab week!

~!~!~The Edward Creeper Radio Show~!~!~

So I forgot that we had to do a progress report this week and I think it would be pointless to do one now since the show is already done so I guess I’ll give a recap of this week.

Everybody finished recording around Tuesday and Ellen and I worked on putting all of the clips together and it was finished this morning. It was really fun, but I didn’t save my parts very well so I kept having to do re-takes.

I used AVS audio editor to record and edit the audio.

I think that my group (Ellen, Scott, Felicia, and I) worked really well as a group. We each took on responsibilities and voiced our ideas openly. In the end I think that it turned out really well!

My favorite part about the show are the commercials. I think that they are really funny because they are so directly creepy! XD

So this was a fun assignment! XD

This Audio Assignment Bank project is titled “Beat Craig’s List” (2 stars). I had to take an add on Craig’s List and say it in a smooth jazzy way. I got the background music off of Soundcloud and its called Lover’s Dance. I used AVS audio editor to edit!

Those out there looking for a Leopard Gecko… this ones for you….

Another Audio/Mashup Assignment Bank project yay! This one is called “The Contest Nobody Could Win” which is not entirely true as I feel like if I heard these under 1 second clips I could tell which song they came from. They are good recognizable clips but to win you need to have a similar taste in music!

Anyways~ this was worth 1.5 stars and the answers are listed below! I really did try to pick more recognizable songs.

Answers:

Handlebars- Flobots
Help I’m Alive- Metric
Never Wanted To Dance- MSI
All We Got- Fergie
Glory- Hollywood Undead
Iodine- Icon For Hire

(^Idols- Virtual Riot^)

The main message I got out of reading the Audio Resources page was that good audio has layers. Stacks on stacks of layers.

I had heard of the catastrophe that was the radio broadcast of War of the Worlds. Its so funny that it happened but I can see how it was a stressful time.

Everything does seem to feel more professional and captivating with music in the background. I now see that that’s the quality that separates the proper Youtubers from the noobs…

I know its GOOD to not have crackles and pops when recording but it really can be difficult. I’ve learned to cover my laptop’s mic with a towel or sock before recording to filter the noise a bit.

Sound really does set the atmosphere. What separates something good from great is usually the atmosphere behind it and audio drives atmosphere so what have we learned? Use more audio! The use of music in scary movies and other video platforms really creates the suspense or carefreeness of the moment. An example of this was the amazingly dramatic music that accompanied the telling of Jack The Ripper that I listened to on Ds106Radio during the live tweet-a-long. Whenever ANYTHING happened there would be some sort of audio cue. It made it a lot easier to keep up with what was going on during the show while I was multitasking.

For this Audio Assignment Bank project called “Row Row Polyphony” worth 2.5 stars, I had to sing a round of Row Row Row Your Boat. It was pretty straightforward. 🙂

I say again because I sang Adele’s Rolling In The Deep with myself in another post found here!

!~That Radio Bumper~!

So for this Audio Assignment Bank project (worth 0 stars) called “Create A Ds106Radio Bumper“, I had to make a 10-30 second reminder to the listener that they are listening to the Ds106 Radio station.

I used the mashup Maps & Habits by 3LAU and used AVS to edit everything. I used the envelope tool to fade everything in and out.
