This week was a long and tedious week. I did a lot of travelling this week in terms of across states and to back home. Along with this, my other four classes also had a ton of workload this week so it’s been a pretty stressful week. The overall completion of this assignment I will admit was rushed. Even after writing this, I still have a couple of quizzes I need to complete. The thing that gave me the most trouble was probably figuring out how to use Audacity. Other than the first hour that it took to figure things out, it was pretty much smooth sailing from there. It was also my most enjoyable part after learning about how to audio edit using that software. I felt like learning Audacity was a very valuable lesson as it can be used a lot outside of just this class. Below are two videos I found helpful while using Audacity. Personally, I am better looking at YouTube videos rather than the text tutorial that was originally recommended. Something I found interesting about this week, was the audio layering and the concept of Foley Sounds. I’ve looked into the matter in my own time before getting this assignment about foley sounds but I just can’t get over how amazing it is that there are foley artists out there doing this. Seems like a really cool and creative job that anyone would enjoy.
I wouldn’t do much else differently from the assignments I completed besides maybe perhaps trying out a new audio editing software.
