“What is a bumper? It is a short recording that identifies the radio station with signature music or an expression that makes sure the listeners know what they are tuned into. So for ds106 it should certainly include “DS106 Radio” and some sort of message about the station with voice over music.”
Holy crap I had no IDEA how much time goes into making a 30 second clip. Well for me it felt like 5 years, but it was probably more like 2 point 267396 hours. ugh.
BUT! I did manage to eek out a pretty (I think) fun bumper for DS106 radio!
And without further ado…
Voice: All Me.
What did I do you ask?
1. Take a deep breath
2. Close the computer and walk away, grab some Fritos and maybe milk.
5. I downloaded audacity. This was free and easy to use. Thank you shareware.
6. I downloaded the converter. Do this, you wont regret it. seriously, it is basically impossible to make this work with out this. It may be called LAME, but it certainly IS. NOT.
8.-2982. try, sample, listen, do-over, try again, listen more, smack-head, walk-away, return, bang the desk, smile, listen some more, watch the tutorial over again, play with dogs, laugh at your own antics, relax, SAVE.
2983. Export to convert to an MP3 file.
2984. Upload to SoundCloud.
2985. Sit back and enjoy! (that’s where I am right now, still have some Fritos left in my bowl too!)
2986. Get ready to practice more and make perfect, or at least better next time!
