FX Magic Making

How we create Sound FX in our Music Audio Stories.

Sound effects really add to the atmosphere of each adventure and we strive to create movement as much as possible. We include traditional Foley methods. Not everything you hear is prominent in the mix of our audio books, so there are a few more subtle Sound FX in the background to listen out for. We have stories that feature the sounds of New York City, villages, forests, farms, Space and even an Ice Hockey game! This aspect of the creation process is real fun and stretches us to use our imagination. Often we look around the studio for unusual objects to create sounds.

Recording Sound FX

Some of the FX we use in our audio books are created using computer samples and effects units but we also make our own sounds using instruments. We used a machine called the Copicat to create the sound of our Spaceship in Robert & Johnson's Space Adventure. Adie also made fantastic sounds with his guitar for the Space theme in that story too.
