Fun Effects in Soundbooth
I’ve been trying out Soundbooth but I wasn’t sure where to go to add interesting effects, like the one already mentioned on the blog. I watched the tutorials and through playing around a bit I think I’ve got some little helpful hints.
First, by accident, I found that if you make a recording and you want to start using it for a multi-track project like we talked about in class, there is a quick way to do that. If you have the recording up and you right click on the track, in your pop-up menu you will have the option to “insert waveform into new multi-track file.”
From there, a new file is created that allows you to add many layers of audio. Remember, like mentioned in class, you will have to drag files to the multi-track recording to add them. I forgot that briefly and it caused some confusion.
Once you have a few things layered in your Soundbooth multi-track recording, you can start to have fun. I did use the “reduce noise”, “remove clicks and pops” and the “remove rumbling” in the Processes menu. I also played with a few Effects.
If you double click on the track in your multi-track recording, you can edit that . On the left hand side are a few tabs, in order: Tasks, Effect, Markers, Properties. I’ve explored a few of these, but Effects was the most fun right away. By clicking on Effects you can choose an effect from the pop-up menu.
Once you have that applied, you can change they type of effect with another pop-up. It updates automatically in your file so you can go back and replay the new track with the adjustments. So far I’ve found some pretty cool things.
