Mr. Dobalena, Mr. Bob Dobalena

Nothing much to say about this: just an exercise in getting started figuring out how to use the Audacity sound editing open source software I downloaded yesterday off SourceForge.net. It’s the Monkees meets the Music Man meets “Revolution #9” meets Licensed to Ill. Which, all told, just may be the Viper’s Rosetta Stone.

The sound was recorded straight through the built-in mic on my Dell Inspiron 8600, and it sounds a little funny because I tried using Audacity’s noise reduction feature to get rid of the various fan & hard drive sounds that were tagging along for the ride. Since I was practicing the program’s features, I only said each line twice, thus forcing me to figure out how to cut and paste to stretch each out to four times.

  1. Isn’t that a great program? I have my students working with that as well as Finale Notepad and Acid Loops. They are all free programs available for download.
