Week 11: Sound

    Here it is folks! The sound you've all been looking for! I found some great voice effects in Garage Band this week. It took me a little while to get used to the program as I am usually just the voice in the band, not the "real musician" and certainly not the audio engineer.
    The process was rather simple once I figured it out. I was using my iPad which made it a little tricky because iPad's don't give you the luxury of saving things to the desktop and whatnot, which confuses my gracefully simple mind.
    After repeated attempts to make a jingle for Drive Hairfully using Garage Band's "smart instruments," I gave up hope of ever playing a keyboard and just used my trustworthy voice. There are five different "instruments" in the track. Three are voice recording with different effects on each and two are a synth machine. I used the small room effect for the commercial part of the track and a megaphone effect for the disclaimer. In case you are not able to make the disclaimer out is says "Drive Haifully in not responsible for any automobile accidents that may cause... death."
   The hardest part of this assignment was figuring out how to upload the final product from the iPad. After way too much time spent messing the whole program up, I finally figured out that I could email it to myself. I then downloaded the track onto my iMac, then uploaded it to my eportfolio from there.
    I know, it's super amateur, but you have to start somewhere!
