Hedleys Radio, used their Media suite technology to capture sound effects which were incorporated into a Christmas radio programme
Hedleys Radio is part of the Karten Media Suite at the Percy Hedley Foundation.
What a canny sound effect!
Welcome to our latest radio play Frosty Fingers! We hope it makes you feel nice and Christmassy. Whilst making it the team have stomped on cornflakes to make the sound of snowy footsteps and made wintery soundscapes of howling winds! Have a little listen...
We record most of the sound effects we use ourselves, often using a completely different object! In this radio play Father Christmas' sleigh running along the snowy ground was actually a piece of paper sliding across a table.
If one sound effect isn't quite right, try layering it up with another one. We walked on cornflakes then squashed cornflour in a sock to make footsteps through the snow. On their own they aren't quite enough together they sound great!
We upload our finished podcasts to a free website called Mixcloud.com, this means we do not need to use lots of space to store them on our own website.
The record feature within Book Creator is another way of capturing audio. Click on the audio button in the following examples showing :
