Recording

Use iMic or Macally (USB sound card) and Final Vinyl or Sound Recorder (recording software) to make sound files of yourself using a microphone, or other audio using the line out of a turn table, tape recorder, etc. If using the iMic hardware, make sure to set the microphone sound in switch to line out or preamp (when the switch is toward the microphone icon, the signal is pre-amplified). Line out signals already have a preamp, so keep the switch toward the microphone icon when using line out. If using Macally, talk directly into the Macally built in microphone or plug an external microphone into the Mic In port. Press the Mode button so that the GREEN indicator light comes on. The RED indicator light is used if using the Line In port when plugging in audio equipment. Using Sound Recorder, be sure to set the Audio input to the sound card you are using (Final Vinyl only works with iMic). Files should be saved as AIFF or WAV format and logically named. Save in a folder on your disk called recorded_sound. Convert the files to MP3 in the same folder and submit on a data CD.

Effects

Once you have recorded sound files, you can filter them with the effects filters in Sound Recorder: open a sound file and select the waveform. From the Filter menu, select one of the effects listed. Save As (not save) your new sound file in a folder on your disk called effects. Convert the files to MP3 in the same folder and submit on a data CD.
