Disco Siri Takes One For The Team

“Now that we have a #ds106 radio up and running creating a 15 to 30 second bumper for the station. What is a bumper? It is a short recording that identifies the radio station with signature music or an expression that makes sure the listeners know what they are tuned into (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bumper_(broadcasting)). So for ds106 it should certainly include “DS106 Radio” and some sort of message about the station with voice over music.”

Create A Ds106 Radio Bumper

This assinment grew around the fact that I don’t really like to hear my voice in recordings at the moment. So I recruited Google translate to do the speaking for me. 

I found a cool song on Freesound that I think matched the vibe of the computer generated voice as best as a song cloud, then played around in iMove to get it how I wanted it to be. Basically I just added a few fades and called it a day. 

I did try to add another beat and also a buzzing noise to the clip for extra dimension, but both of those experiments turned out ear-bleedingly badly so I kept it simple.
