3. Taken For A Weapon
Foundry Sound Forge
Foundry Acid Pro
Using a seedtrack 01 file from another student as
a primary source, a new 3-5 minute track was to be created using Sound
Forge and then compiled in Acid
Pro. Outside sources could also be used.
I wanted to combine the aspects of using software synthesizers and sampled
material in this track. The rhythmic aspects of the track were created
by modifying samples while the melodic bits were generated through software
synthesis. The two methods of sound generation fit nicely together and
extend the range of possible sounds within the track.
As with the first seed track, pulling particular audio clips from the
source without the other parts of the track seeping through in an undesired
manner proved difficult. Some of this could be pulled out with EQ adjustments
while others just had to be worked around completely.
