Raining Hamburgers!?

After setting up a SoundCloud account, browsing the site, then getting acquainted with some of the features and capabilities the site has to offer, I went ahead and recorded my first SoundCloud audio file! I kept with the theme our professor recommended: A silly news story. For some reason the first thing that popped into my head was “raining hamburgers” which was inspired by the movie “Cloudy with a chance of meatballs.” Recording audio using SoundCloud’s recording application was extremely easy and straightforward. I had to re-do my recording several times before I heard one I liked, so thankfully it was easy to simply start over. I haven’t really recorded myself much before, so this was an enjoyable experience. You will notice I also added in some entrance and exit music in order to have smoother transitions – Not sure if it worked well? The music was coming from my computer speakers so it wasn’t “layered.” See my recording below..

    Good job fading the music out even though it was just on your speakers. Was it playing from the same computer you were using for the recording? Whatever you did I think it worked well. I commented on your soundcloud post but I’ll say it again here — I’d love to catch a burger on the way home from work!

  2. I have to say this is brilliant, and inventive for you to have done the music the only way to do with s single track audio source. Plus its funny.

    Once you dabble in Audacity, you will be able to layer them up and control the levels.
