Tell us what “that” song means to you!

For this audio assignment I used two different sites, YouTube & SoundCloud. The steps were honestly pretty simple. Let me show you!

I started off by first finding the video of  the song on YouTube. Once I found it, I headed over to  SoundCloud to record what it means to me. As you can see in the screen shot the volume of the video is turned down really low. This is how I managed to capture the layering sound effect. I lowered the actual video volume and made sure that my computer volume was up high. This allowed me to in a way talk over the music. On SoundCloud I first clicked the upload option up on the right. That took me to the option of uploading something or recording something new. I chose to record directly from the site.

All I had to do was hit record and start talking. Once I got my recording done, I selected the upload and share option. This allowed me to tittle my song and select how I wanted to share it.  Screen Shot 2016-06-05 at 2.03.13 PMScreen Shot 2016-06-05 at 1.41.16 PM

After titling my song I then saved it. SoundCloud then automatically uploads your new recording.

The rest is super easy and simple. Copying the links to embed into your post. Head on back to YouTube and copy the video link, post it into your blog post. You’re then going to head to SoundCloud and do the same.
