In this section, you can hear sounds that have been manipulated with audio editing software.
We took an original sound file and altered it with audio editing software for this section. Listen to the individual differences in each clip to get an idea of how specific audio editing functions can change sound. To hear each sound, click on the link and wait for your Audio Player to open and play the sound.
The original sound file. This file is a 44 HZ and a 16 bit resolution file (44/16), and is a good reference to what a CD-stereo quality sound sounds like. You'll need Apple's Quicktime to listen to this sound, as it's a .mov file. But don't say we didn't warn you: this file is a whopping 723 KB. Needless to say, it might take a while to download.
The original sound converted to 11/8 mono. (46 KB; .wav file).
The same sound file pitched down for a slow playback rate. This effect can be created with a playback rate function on your audio editing application. (46 KB; .wav file).
The sound file sped up in the middle. This effect is created with a playback rate function in your sound editing application. (37 KB; .wav file).
The same sound file with echos in the background. You can create echo effects with an echo or reverb function within your audio editing application. (46 KB; .wav file).
The sound files with only the treble frequencies. Once either the treble or the bass has been removed from a sound file, you cannot put it back into the file. However, if you have a sound clip in which either the treble or bass dominates over the other, you can even the two out with an equalizer, which can be found in your audio editing application (46 KB; .wav file).
