This was a scheduled session meant to introduce people to what they need to know about using Audacity. We demonstrated how to edit a collage of sounds files into one that can connect them into a single message — the Sound Effect Story activity of Unit 4.
If you missed it, no worries, here is a complete archive of the demo.
These are places we offered to locate sounds, if you do not have your own.
- Freesound (free but you need to create an account to download)
- McCauley Library (Cornell Lab of Ornithology) offers wildlife sounds.
- public domain sounds shared and recorded by people around the world.
- SoundBible free sound effects
- SoundTransit field recordings
- Wikimedia Commons Sounds by Type
And we even built a place for you to keep track of them; check out the Sound Pool.
