an introduction to the basic scientific principles of sound and its transmission, the units by which it is quantified (Hz and kHz), and the basic levels (in dB) of common sounds
the different types of microphones and choosing the right one for your recording project
recording and digitally editing the vital components of a video soundtrack including the dialogue, sound effects, and music
My Mini Custom Sound Effects Library:
I created half of these sound effects before enrolling in TAFE because creating sound effects is a highly interesting process that can become addictive. Digital sound editing programs allow you to make sounds that you have never heard before in your life – like forging a new universe for your ears to enjoy. The robot sounds included here were made by stripping away almost all of the soundtrack until there was almost no real sound left. What was left was then altered by flipping its waveform and at times running it in reverse.
Other foley sounds I have included here were incorporated into various assignments throughout last year including image flip books (the sounds were used as custom button sounds), animations and one of my digital video projects.
