For 3.5 stars this week, I completed the ds106 Radio Commercial assignment.  This counts towards my star count for the week, and we can also use it for our radio show! Look Ma, I’m multi tasking!

 

 

In order to create this commercial, I wrote a short script, then Sally Slaughterhouse recorded all of the vocals and then I manipulated the audio using Audacity.  I sped up the last part and also changed the pitch, so it would sound like a deeper voice that is typical of those fast talkers we hear on the radio.  I found the background audio using freesound.org.  This is the first sound that I used, and I just looped it for however long I needed it to be.  This is the second clip that I used in my commercial.  I only used the beginning of it, because that is all that I needed!

This wasn’t that hard of an assignment to complete, but Audacity gave me some issues while I was in the process of editing. That was what took so long…
