Please Someone Call the Police! : You know how in crime movies and criminal investigation shows they usually include an audio of a victom talking to the police over the phone? Well in this assignment make an audio of you talking to the police over the phone. Your story of why you are calling the police is up to you, but make sure the audio has two different voices using Audacity or some other audio editing software. (4 stars).
This assignment is apart of my final narrative of “Edna’s Not Missing”. I used the assignment because I wanted to call into the police that Miranda (Me) was missing. Usually, people don’t call the police when their dogs or cats run away from home or are missing, but I wanted to do this for exaggeration for my story to show how worried Edna was.
I used Audacity for this audio assignment, and throughout the semester, it has been such a great application for recording and editing sounds and effects.
First, I decided to record both parts first. I did the “Police” voice first. Then I recorded Edna’s voice. This was funny because I tried to make them sound a little different.
I also had to move the recordings over to the correct places so it became a conversation! I used the button in the middle (on the bottom) which has arrows on both sides to drag my recordings to the right place.
I decided to change the pitch of the “Police’s” part. I went to Effect, then Change Pitch. I decided to drag the bar at the bottom which is “Percent Change” to -10. This made the voice deeper so it would sound different from Edna’s.
That was basically it. I exported my audio using File, Export Media.
Here is the finished police call!
