For my first audio assignment, I created a fictional radio ad worth 4.5 stars that could be played during our broadcast. I chose to do an ad about this because of the creepy a$$ clowns that have been terrorizing the country, and there was one on my street yesterday. I am not happy with it.
Because there has been clown sightings in Fredericksburg, I chose to have the ad coming from our police chief, David Nye. I used to Fredericksburg Police Station website to find his name, so hopefully he is okay with that.
Next, I recorded my message on Audacity and changed the pitch to about a -15% change. I then used http://freesound.org and searched for “commercial background music,” which is where I found “Goodnight” by TexasMusicForge. I inserted background music on Audacity and lowered the volume, and then saved it all together for my ad.
The assignment was pretty simple because I enjoy using Audacity, and I have some experience with it now!
