Sound Effect Story: The Nether

Sound Effect Story: The Nether by Matthew Presser
I enjoyed this one once I finally figured out how to record it. In Ubuntu, the system allows you to set the recording device to “analog loopback” (i.e., it sends the total output of your sound card into your sound input, as…

Do It Now!

I have to admit this became more of a dabbling with “found sounds” rather than what I’d think normally as working with sound effect clips. But I couldn’t help myself as I really enjoyed looking through the open catalog of freesound.org.
This little piece started while trying to manage a…

Sound Effects Story

Here’s my sound effects story. All of the sounds that I used I got off of freesound.org. I made it by setting up all of the sounds in garage band and then just either lengthening them or shortening them depending on how long or how much of the actual sound…

Peace and Quiet by techsavvyed
It’s the 4th of July here in the United States, a day to celebrate our independence, our freedom, but mostly in modern America what we celebrate is enjoying a little summer relaxation before the big fireworks show at night. Here’s a brief sound effect story…

Audio I — Sound Effects Story

While I try to find out if I can use the music I’ve downloaded from Amazon and ripped from CDs I’ve purchased in the second mandatory assignment, I’ve decided to make my sound effect story include various portions of a drive to work.  Cue “More” tag……

Audio effects story – A day by seaside

Our Weekend Bar Fight

This is the sound project that Steph, Jess and I worked on in class on Thursday. It took forever for me to get this up because of business sorry. But I am getting this up before the deadline. We tweaked it a bit because it was deemed to calm/quiet to…

My Short Sound Effects Story

hey everybody, since a picture is supposedly worth 1000 words i didn’t find it too hard to create a story using photographs. however, how many words is a sound worth? i would assume not as many because i had a lot more difficulty trying to create a story using strictly…

A Daily Routine

So I didn’t really know what kind of story I wanted to make when I first started, but I saw the post on MG79MKIV‘s blog page and got pointed in the right direction. From that post I saw the link to this website. Once I was there, I just started…

Running Shoes Redux (Sound Effect Story)

For my sound effect story, I decided to do a retelling of my Flickr Five Card Story “Running Shoes.” I actually changed the story a little bit since I was able to create a more detailed story with over a minute of audio than with five photos. Basically it’s still…

Audio Assignment

Well, David, Brandon, and myself all worked on this first audio assignment, and I’m going to blog about what we came up with. It was a pretty difficult thing to work on, actually. Though we’d messed around with Audacity already, I for one had not done any importing. I knew…

ds106 FO LYFE: Track 1

So earlier this evening after Jim Groom told us about this project and many of us shuddered with fear, Jordan, Andrew, and I sat down and started thinking about what we should do for the Sound Effect Story.

Vintage Video Game Fight…

http://gorgonchest.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Vintage-Video-Game-Fight.wav

I really wanted to do another assignment and really keep to the “sounds only rule”. This mix of vintage video game fighting games was fun but painful to make with all the additional little “wisps” and “swooshes” and the punches with corresponding pain sounds. Loads of fun!…
