Playing Something on the Piano is not Always Better (Tutorial)

How it all Came to Be

Here I walk you through the Auditory Illusions assignment.  We will be using the song Sober Taxi from Free Music Archive, MIDITrail for Mac, and Bear File Converter. Of course, you will need to take a screen recording of your finished illusion once you have the midi track playing.  You can use Quicktime or any other screen recording app that you would like. If you are doing this on Mac, you may need to install the SoundFlower audio driver to capture the audio of your screen recording.

Auditory Illusions

Auditory Illusions is when you hear the lyrics where there are none because there is only piano. Create your own auditory illusion by downloading a song with heavy vocals and convert it to a MIDI file. Then put the MIDI file into MIDI Trails  and adjust some of the settings. Use a screencasting software to record your video and audio. Upload your final product to YouTube. Here is an example.
