I am really sad. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was polishing my photoshop skills? Where did time go? I’ve mentally check-marked everything off on wrapping up ds106.

  • I have written/typed three blog posts; this one, one for final project, and a reflection video blog post.
  • I scheduled a meeting with Prof Groom for my ds106 portfolio on Friday at 4pm.
  • I’ve organized my blog (reference to pages below header) according to assignment types, TDCs, best works, tutorials, and assignments created with the exception of course participation because I was excused by Prof Groom himself that I need not to provide proof for comments/participation. (thanks, Prof Groom! you’re the best)
  • I’ve made a backup on UMW blogs and imported/exported everything from this blog. I also indicate the URL for my UMW blogs on my main ds106 website. At this point, I’m probably going to let go of my blog πŸ™ I’m not very good with keeping up with blogs in general so I doubt I’ll be using it much. But keeping up with this blog has been such a blast and I’ll miss blogging about assignments very much!
  • I’ve made my final project and final video post! Go look for it πŸ™‚

And ..that’s a wrap.

This is so weird. The audio was lagging just a minute ago before I uploaded the video and now it works! What luck. Anyway, I hope you can hear me well. I usually have a very soft voice and I tried to speak up but I didn’t want to scare you! Haha, just kidding. Please don’t criticize my speaking, I get very nervous and lose my train of thoughts.. even in front of the computer screen. πŸ™Β

In this last tutorial, I elaborated on how to change your voice in audacity so that it is no longer discernible. In my audio assignment, I managed to change the pitch of my voice so that I sound like a chipmunk! Enjoy πŸ™‚

Completely alter your voice using audacity so that it is no longer discerable. You can use whatever method to achieve this effect – sing a song, tell a joke, recite a quote, etc etc.

I took the infamous Carly Rae Jepson’s Call Me Maybe song and changed the pitch into the chipmunks version. It is definitely the most hilarious thing I have ever done. The process wasn’t so difficult — I first searched for the karaoke version of Call Me Maybe and downloaded the soundtrack on vidtomp3. I imported the soundtrack to audacity and recorded my singing to the main chorus. I was really careful on trying to sound on beat with the karaoke and not messing up. After I finished recording, I changed the pitch to a really high chipmunk sounding voice and I cut the soundtrack down to the main chorus.Β Then, I exported the final project, and there you have it! My chipmunk voice morphing is complete πŸ™‚ Enjoy!Β
