The 8th graders have entered the recording studio! Using GarageBand software on a Mac computer with a "Blue" Snowball USB microphone, the students are beginning to record spoken audio tracks. They have prepared scripts for a "welcome message" similar to the one Mrs. M recorded as an example. (See home page.) Each class has worked together to build a single background musical composition. This was created using musical "loops."
8A and 8B have different styles! Listen to the 8A & 8B's background projects by clicking on their project page found --> HERE!
Now the spoken track is being added and edited. Each script uses the class soundtrack, but the final results will be different depending on the message created and the announcer! The tracks will be mixed together into individual MP3 files. Our goal is to gain permissions to begin posting these projects on our web page!
