Compaired to most of the other galleries here at Wincustomize.com the sound schemes gallery is well..... cutting way short. I know that its only been a year or so since it came out ...but there isnt much to choose from. To my knowledge there isnt even any other site that has a gallery for sound packager? Anyways what Im trying to say is we NEED MORE SOUND PACKS!
The reason I am submitting this artical is because its way easier than you may think. You just need a few simple things.
1 A recording program that lets you record what is comeing out of your speakers.
2 A Virtual Piano, otherwise known as a ONscreen Piano, with a variety of voices(insturments)
3 Wave Editing software.
4 Open Mind
And Mix it all together and you get FABULOUSE!!!
These speacial ingredients can be purchased or you can download these programs FREE! At your own risk of course!
1: http://applian.com/freecorder3/ Freerecorder( Im not shure sbout this program! If i were you i would look around and find a program that records sounds that come from your speakers)
2:http://www.pianoeletronico.com.br/index-en.html Electronic Piano With Over 100 voices(insturments)
3: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ Audacity Has many effects like whawha delay echo and you can ad sounds to your sounds to that way you can play something on the piano open it with audacity and play another something on the piano and then add it to the first and so on>....
Open Freerecorder it will ask you to choose a place for recorded filed to be stored. Choose one with easy acess and then open electronic piano. Choose an insturment and press record on freerecorder! Then open audacity and open the file you just recorded located in the folder you choose to save them in. Manipulate the sound. Echo Reverse! Whatever you will find that you can make some cool sounds. Just play around. Dont forget you can undo anything you try so just play. And also dont forget about the drums. There is a box at the top of the piano that says play drums only. check it and your on drums. Use the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard to change the drum sound for each corresponding number/letter/symbol. Also dont forget you can open something with audacity edit it and then rocord something else and add it to it and again and again as many times as you want!
When you are done editing the sound you go to file export as .wav and save it in a folder where you will , when you have made all the sounds, open sound packager and create your new package!
If you need any help With ANY OF THIS POST QUESTIONS! I am here to help! I have gotten the hang of useing all of these programs and I know them VERY WELL! It is so much fun to do so jsut give it a try. It is really not as hard as you think when you first start. I have only used this method 3 times and i am so fast i can make a package of fun cool interesting sounds in 2 hours or less. Probly less. Just please ask my any questions about anything.
As quoted by Sir Philly0381
My personal opinion here, for those who make sounds, you do need to pay attention to the timing of the sounds to the function. Sounds that go on after the function has completed could be annoying to those using them. Myself, I like the packages that include a mix of sounds and voices.
Also Make sure that you test you sound packages for a while to make shure none of the sounds get on your nerves. This way when you upload them you dont have reupload them after you find out that it was annoying. And remember that the purpose of sound packager is that users can apply a sound package quickly and easily. People may not like you sound scheme if one of the sounds annoys them they may not even use it. They want to apply and go back to what they are doing. So just watch out for that! K ..... K!
With Audacity you can aslo cut sounds from songs and edit.
If Need Be I will add to this article and explain every aspect of audacity. WHat the effect do. How to set the effects. And so on. There isnt that much!
Well anyway I hope some of you at leat give it a try!
