For my first audio assignment from the audio assignment bank, I completed the Sound Effects Story which is worth 4 stars. For my sound effects story, I chose to create a story of a woman waking up, going on a hike where she hears the beautiful sounds of nature and even comes across a waterfall, then once she reaches the top, she is in pure amazement by all the sights she’s seeing. Scroll to the bottom of the page to hear the finished product!
I got my sound effects from https://freesound.org and used GarageBand to complete this assignment. At first I was a little apprehensive about using GarageBand because I’ve never used it before, but once I got started I caught on pretty quickly (at with the basics). Below I will share a few instructions that can help you create your own sound effect story on GarageBand.
Step 1, once you open GarageBand, select ‘audio’, ‘recording’, then hit ‘create’.
Step 2, once you’ve made it to this page you can begin dragging and dropping your audio files.
Step 3, once you’ve added your audio files this is where you can change their length and order to fit your needs.
In this final step, this is where you can share you music file. GarageBand gives you a few options (I shared mine straight to SoundCloud).
And now you have your own sound effects story!
