Edited Audio Profile
October 12, 2011 § 1 Comment
Condensing the raw audio profile down to a 2 minute edited audio profile was very painless in regard to my personal experience with this exercise. Audio editing is something I’m familiar with due to my background with music and editing for sound quality in cars, stereos, and other devices. I own a nice pair of Sennheiser headphones that have a noise canceling function which really enhanced the editing ability for my profile. The zoom tool, move tool, and default cursor were essentially the only tools I needed to complete this assignment. The cuts in the edited profile shouldn’t be too noticeable if noticeable at all. Sarah had plenty of interesting content to talk about for her profile, so choosing which content to keep and discard was probably the hardest thing about this assignment. My goal was to capture as much of Sarah’s personality through her story as possible. She had many personable quotes that exhibited some her keen sense of humor as well. The process of editing was actually easier than conducting the interview in my situation because of the extensive problems with transporting digital information. I didn’t have to use any of the effects such as noise canceling, pop filter, or normalizing the audio because the levels and smoothness of audio were already even. Besides the complications with actually acquiring the audio needed for the assignment, I didn’t find any part of this assignment to be wretched or horrible. I was lucky to have an interesting interview that kept me engaged. As Sarah was telling her stories I was quickly able to identify a theme I wanted convey for her story, which made this assignment flow effortlessly.
