Daily Bulletin - On the air

Tuesday, October 17, 2017


Good afternoon,


Today is Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 and my name is___.


On this day in history in 1989, the deadliest earthquake to hit the San Francisco area since 1906 struck at 5:04 p.m. and lasted for 15 seconds. The quake measured 7.1 on the Richter scale, and its aftermath was witnessed on live television by millions of people watching the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Athletics, held at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. The earthquake killed a total of 63 people, while more than 3,000 others were injured and more than 100,000 buildings were damaged.

The Audio Project: What is a Foley artist?



Greatest Radio Show Ever

Orson Welle's 1938 broadcast of "War of the Worlds."

Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll

Using audacity

Recording Narration

1.      To begin recording a short clip, open Audacity by clicking on the desktop shortcut.

2.      Once Audacity is running make sure that your microphone is plugged into your computer or that your built-in microphone is working.

3.      Press the red Record button, you should see the track recording below.

4.      Then press Stop which is the yellow square.

To save to an Audacity project for re-opening later in Audacity, go to File > Save Project, select your location and name your save appropriately.

To export to an audio file for use in other audio programs on your computer, choose File > Export, and in the file name box, type in a name for your file, in this example we will call it "narration". Select your desired audio. WAV is usually compatible with most Windows programs. Click Save. When it asks for metadata, just press "OK".

Importing Narration

1.      To import an audio track go to File > Import > Audio and choose the file that you would like to import.

2.      In this example we will import the narration previously recorded.

3.      When the warning box appears press OK

4.      To import the rest of your audio files follow this same process and you should see each of your files appear as new tracks underneath the last one.

Copy and Paste

1.      To copy a portion of sound select it using the selection tool (shortcut is F1). This is located at the top center of the main group of toolbars, and looks like an I-beam.

2.      When you have the sound selected it will become highlighted.

3.      Then choose copy from the Edit menu or hit CTRL + C.

4.      Next move the selection tool to where you would like to paste the audio.

5.      To paste, click at the desired location and choose paste from the Edit menu or hit CTRL + V.


1.      To move clips around in time choose the time-shift tool (F5) from the same toolbar, which looks like a pair of arrows pointing outwards.

2.      Then click on the portion of audio that you would like to move and drag it left or right on the timeline to your desired location.

In this example we will leave a slight overlap between the two portions of background music.

After that we will move the first cry to approximately to 3.5 seconds.

Then we will move the second cry slightly after the end of the first cry.


1.      To do a fade-in, select the portion of audio that you would like to fade in using the selection tool.

2.      Then go to Effect > Fade In.

This will gradually increase the sound from silence to its original volume.


1.      To do a fade-out, select the portion of audio that you would like to fade out using the selection tool.

2.      Then go to Effect > Fade Out.

This will gradually decrease the sound from its original volume to silence.

Deleting Clips

1.      To delete a portion select the audio that you would like to get rid of using the selection tool.

2.      Then go to Edit > Delete or hit the delete key on your keyboard.

This will remove the audio, but without adding it to Audacity's clipboard. If you had wanted to remove that portion but then paste it elsewhere, you would have used Edit > Cutwhich would have cut the audio to the Audacity clipboard.


General Tips


Don’t be afraid to experiment — CTRL + Z or Edit > Undo will fix any experimentation.

Be willing to spend as much time as needed on your projects.
