Join us for this once a month class learning how to create your own sound effects.
When: First Tuesday of every month
Where: NCTV Studio
Each session we will have a set theme. Students are encouraged to bring an item from home to record.
Studio etiquette and class guidelines
Mic positioning and levels
Tools and methods
Hear and discuss results
Discuss how we can manipulate them
Strike and go home
Students get a copy of all sounds recorded that day and are encouraged to manipulate them and share their results online or at the next class. There is no specific software requirement and students should use whatever they feel comfortable on to get their desired results.
January 2nd’s theme is toys!
We will be using Lom Elektrosluch electromagnetic microphones! They pick up sound made by everyday electronics (lights, motors, displays, and literally everything else) and brings them into audible frequencies.
We also have a shotgun mic and a matched pair of condensers for recording the audible noises as well. So make sure to steal your kid’s new toys and come to the lab!
Everyone helps setup and tear down
Everyone gets a chance to monitor
