Homework 6 ScreenShots and links

I played around with 4 different audio sources with Audacity, a wonderful free audio editing interface and tool.

My MP3 is really sloppy, but the effects I chose worked well for my audio choices.

1. Savage's Medley, an instrumental by DJ Call Me Like

 Source: https://soundcloud.com/callmelike/savages-medley
 
 This instrumental is generously provided for download from Call Me Like's Soundcloud.
 
-I added a high-cycle phaser effect, which changes the beat dramatically.

2. Posted, an instrumental by DJ Call Me Like

 Source: https://soundcloud.com/callmelike/posted-instrumental
 
 Another instrumental, generously provided for download by Call Me Like from his Soundcloud.
 
 Pairs well with Savage's Medley.
 
 -I used a low pass filter to make this sample more bass-heavy. I also use a fade-in.

3. Do Ya Thang - Andre 3000 and The Gorillaz

 Source: https://soundcloud.com/doyathing/doyathing-full-version/s-4hfLu
 
 - I use a long fade out here, and I lower the pitch and tempo as well, both only slightly lowered though. 
 - My idea was to slow Andre's vocals down like a chopped and screwed version, ironic because he says something 
 - about others criticizing him for rapping too fast in this free song that Andree 3000 and the Gorillaz 
 - produced for a Converse commercial.

4. Leave House Caribou

 Source: I bought this CD, and only used a 9 second sample for this project.
 
-I applied a wah-wah at a low frequency and also reversed the sample, giving it a whole new rhythm.
-There is also a significant fade-in and decibel changes.


Here is the final MP3:
