Alexander Eakins, senior English major practices the guitar as a hobby when he started taking classes at St. Mary’s University. As he improves, he hopes to write his own lyrics and produce his own music.
With my first project using sound , I learned how to convert a file from aif to mp3. Actually, that was quite necessary in order to start a project. One of the things using that I was aware of is that I have bad management when organizing files. I made three folders using the same sound and I had to learn where to best conveniently place them.
As I was doing this project, I would spend more time editing the sound that that it is more clear and natural. I think I did a fairly decent job, but I didn’t do it as clean as I could have. I need to be more detailed so that the interview sounds genuine.
The most challenging part was to edit the gaps of silence because if I edited too much, it wouldn’t seem natural. It was also a bit difficult to copy each file again and rename it, but at the same time it was good management skills to practice.
This project took me about three hours. I interview the person, but had to interview them twice because my recorder does not record at the best quality. Then from them I put all in the information in final cut pro and started editing everything.
