Sound progress

recording Progress! I have my own little sound studio which packs up under my arm to put away and then I have the lite version with just a headset and microphone. The learning journey has been worth it already:

1. I can make MP4 videos with clear sound
2. I can make very clear voice recordings
3. I can do clever things like play with peak and clearing pops and clicks
4. I did not have to spend a fortune to achieve this
5. My learning path is now very clear

From all of this I am now in a better position to help students with sound recordings. I am a French teacher. It is important we can get clear sound on our audio tracks, particularly if they are for external assessment. I have to say I have found Wave Pad has accelerated my learning because as software it is just so helpful. It is software I shall be able to grow into and learn more with. The free version is more than adequate but the added extras with the paid version are worth it when you have a better understanding of what you need. With the free version I’ll be able to get students to improve the quality of their recordings which are often too soft or muffled. I have progressed to putting voice recordings into little videos with other sound effects and music because that will be the creative side of all this learning. I have proven you do not actually have to learn much, as it turns out, in order to improve what you are doing with sound. What has taken me so long is learning what I needed and why and then how to put it all together. Even at this early stage I feel confident enough to use my sound knowledge in class and put it to good use. Can only get better from here.

Audio editing software

I have just found Wave Pad. Normally I use Audacity because it is cross platform, my students can use it easily and know the software and it is basically fuss free and effective. In class I use Audacity and Garage Band because we have MacBooks and iPads. Wave Pad is now an other option.Once you show students how to add the effects in Garage Band then their recordings really come up a level because they like using sound effects and it spurs them on to doing better. Audacity is handy in class for straight out  voice recording. Remember, I am no sound technician and I am teaching French. I am looking for things to help me improve the quality of what I can produce and thereby increase my options as a teacher but I am also looking at how anyone can make better quality sound files. Wave Pad is for Windows , Mac , Android , iOS but not Linux .I have found already that it has improved what I am doing even though I am currently just using a microphone with speaker attached. I could record something, enhance the voice, clean up the track and get a better sound…all in 10 minutes. If I can use this software, then anyone can. It does make a difference. There is a paid version and choices. That is good marketing. For a start I can have a really good look at this software without feeling it will disappear off my computer, be so limited I would not really have a clue and have no chance of really understanding how the software will benefit me and those I share sound files and sound file making with. Wave Pad comes with tutorials, helpful hints, ideas, clear explanations, You Tube support and an opportunity to grow as I learn without feeling like I have to push myself when I am not ready to. This is the crux of learning new technology. You need time to explore and gain confidence, you need help if you want it, you need a vision. I have the cables now for my mixer and so I am looking forward to using Wave Pad. I’ll still use Audacity because I am cross platform but my desktop and netbook are what I use at home and my NetBook made a really nice sound file last night just after I had downloaded Wave Pad. If nothing else, others who produce software should take some tips from Wave Pad as to how to introduce new clients to a platform.
