1. Record your voice.
2. Prepare your soundtracks.
3. Create your audio clip in Audacity.
4. Update your sources table to include all your sound tracks, voice overs etc.
WAV - uncompressed format commonly used on a PC. Better quality, but with a large file size.
MP3 - common format for digital music players. It is compressed, which results in loss of quality (though usually undetected by the listener), but has a much smaller file size.
INPUT: Gathering & preparing Content
For this task you may wish to include appropriate sound effects or a soundtrack. Gather and prepare the content for your audio clip.
.WAV vs .MP3
You can use soundation.com to prepare sound effects for your project or record your own. After the audio is sourced it may need to be edited and then exported as a playable file.
Additional Requirements
Ask for feedback from your teacher and test buddy. Make changes if necessary.
Check that your sources table is up-to-date.
Save your finished audio clip in your Activity1 folder.
Answer the questions about your audio clip in your Activity 1 review.
You can use audio software to edit and improve audio files by:
copying and pasting
mixing, which is editing two or more sound files together
silencing, which is removing unwanted silences or background noises
special effects such as fade-in, fade-out, echo, amplify
