  1. 1. Rajiv AriarajNational Diploma Media
  2. 2.  The design of a sound studio is dependant on what kind of sound the studio is trying to record. For example, what do you think the differences will be for a studio designed to record a band compared to a orchestra, compared to a voice overs? Generally speaking every studio will have a “live room” and a “control room”. A control room is where sound engineers monitor the sound levels and record what is happening in the live room.
  3. 3.  Now that the majority of sound recording is digital, the type of computer formats that we use to edit sound is important. What kind of file format do you have on your iPod? Mp3 – is a compressed music format that revolutionised the music industry. WAV – is an older audio format. It is higher quality than mp3 and used in professional environments but it does take up more computer space. AIFF - ?
  4. 4.  When listening back to sound, you can have different setups to create different experiences. Particularly for home cinemas. Surround Sound 5.1 Surround 7.1 Surround Quadraphonic Sound
  5. 5.  In live radio shows, you often have guests phoning in to talk to the presenter. When a standard telephone line is used to in call in shows, you can hear the sound quality difference. Usually phone lines will be played to the radio on a delay. This is because if someone swears live, the producer has a few seconds to bleep out the sound BEFORE it reaches the audience. If a guest is needed for a interview, but cannot make it to the studio, you can also use a ISBN (integrated services digital equipment) for a much higher audio quality. http://radiofail.wordpress.com/
  6. 6.  When recording for a film or TV programme, sounds often have to be created from nothing. There are two major sound effects processes for film: Sound Design and Foley. Sound Design is creating sounds for special effects. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8A6z8QkVHk4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jl7lFPZeIOE Foley Artists – put sounds to images on screen that the microphone didn’t pick up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwBxNj_0B_Y&fe ature=related
  7. 7. 1. Initiation – Recording live sounds.2. Editing – Putting in fades, cutting clips, checking sounds levels.3. Mixing – Adding in other sounds, putting the audio into stereo or surround.4. Mastering – Synching pictures to sound, preparing it for broadcast.
  8. 8.  Dynamic Range – The difference between the loudest and softness parts of a audio clip. Limiting – A device or option that limits the highest volume on a sound device.
  9. 9.  Find and summarise at least 7 job roles that are associated with audio production. Sources you may find useful: http://www.prospects.ac.uk/types_of_jobs.ht m http://www.amps.net/ Your Booklet This PowerPoint
  10. 10.  Find and Summarise Job Roles Listen to the podcast on legal issues www.soundcloud.com/radio_feature and summarise the legal issues faced by audio producers. Summarise and conduct your own research on: Sound Studio Layout Recording and Playback Formats Phone Lines Sound Effects (give an example of how a fictional sound was created by a sound designer) The Sound Production Process
