Audio

There are a number of options for audio in Tremble Training such as the buttons on the app I intend on having simple click sounds for the buttons. I was researching online and found a website.

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tmsoft.soundeffects&hl=en

 

This website allows you to listen to sample audio tracks that are used in apps from the normal click sounds to novelty sounds I found this site very useful.

 

I listened to a lot of the sample sounds on this website but before I started to even think about making anything, I had to work out exactly what I needed a audio for and what sound would best suit each section in tremble training.

 

1.    When the logo appears on screen

2.    Clicking on the buttons

3.    Midi track in the videos e.g. step test & chest test

4.    Audio on wobble boards

5.    Reward sound if exercise completed

6.    Record voice over’s

7.    Edit voice over’s

8.    Edit voice over’s in exercise video’s

9.    Convert all finished video from .mov to .flv for flash

 

The programs and equipment that I am going to be using for the creation of the audio for tremble training are ‘Pro Tools’ and a handy pc version, ‘Audacity’. I will be using a zoom recorder to record all the voice over’s that will be needed for tremble training. For editing the audio on to the exercise videos I will be using the program Final Cut Pro. I will be setting up midi tracks in Pro Tools to make original sounds for tremble training. I now had my list of the audio sounds that had to be made and I had the computer programs to create them the only thing left to do was to research what kind of sounds I have to make, the first being the sound for the logo appearing on the opening screen.

 

 

Sound for Logo

This is the logo for our app Tremble Training. Now, my job is to come up with a suitable sound for when this appears on the phone app screen on the opening page. After talking with the programmer in our group we decided that we would leave the logo sound till the end and, if he had time to animate the logo, we would use the logo sound.

 

Buttons

After doing research on other apps in the fitness market, I discovered that many of the applications that I researched either had a simple click sound for their buttons or sound at all. I decided that a simple click sound over the buttons would be better than having no sound at all.

 

Stamina Section Step & Chest Test

Now it was time to look at the sounds that we were going to be needed for our exercises, for example: the ‘step’ and ‘chest’ test. The Step Test and chest will be used in the stamina section of the mobile app measurement of fitness, and your ability to recover after a strenuous exercise. The more quickly your heart rate returns to resting, the better shape you are in. For this test there has to be a certain ‘beat’ running at the same rhythm for as long as our expert recommends. I have to make a midi track that will content a beat that will be easy for the user to follow as they step up and down trying to keep the rhythm of the beat. I will be making four levels of theses midi tracks with level 1 been a slow rhythm and gradually getting quicker in each level. I have to design a sound in midi that the user will be able to follow and keep their rhythm.

 

Balance Section Rocker & Wobble Board

The next exercise I had to look at was the sounds needed to help the user when they are trying to master the balance section of tremble training which included the rocker and wobble boards. For the rocker board exercises the user would be moving the board from side to side and from front to back. To indicate that the user was doing the exercise correctly I am going to design a ding sound in Pro Tools using midi. When the user hears the ding it will indicate that they are doing the exercises correctly if they hear no sound it will indicate they are doing it incorrectly.

Here is an example of a rocker board the user would be using in tremble training.

 

 

 

 

The wobble board exercises are more difficult for the user than the rocker board exercise. The user will be trying to do some are the same exercises “side to side and from front to back” but there will have to be a little more audio to help the user. We had a group meeting about this because we had to try and come up with sounds that would help the user and not just put the user off. We came up with solution if the user is doing the exercise correctly and moving in the right direction, they will hear the ding sound, indicated they are doing the exercise correctly. If they are going the wrong way and off centre they will hear a deep base sound that won’t be loud enough to put the user off, it will just be a indication to the user that they are doing the exercise incorrectly and may need to was the tutorial video again.

Here is an example of a wobble board the user would be using in tremble training.

 

 

 

Reward Audio on Completion of Levels

The reward voice over is what the user will hear when they complete each level of tremble training. I will use the zoom recorder to record the voice over. I intent for the voice over to simply say, “Congratulations you have completed level () in Tremble Training”. The zoom recorder I will be using is a H1 Zoom. Because both microphones are arranged on the same axis, they are equidistant the result is great stereo recordings.

 

 

 

 

Voice Over’s for exercise videos

The voice over’s will be recorded by me using ‘zoom recorder’. The zoom recorder I will be using is a H1 Zoom. Because both microphones are arranged on the same axis, they are equidistant the result is great stereo recordings. The voice over’s will be done by are fitness expert Kevin Prunty who is currently a lecture in the NTC (National Training Centre) I will be recording are expert as he gives instructions on how the user is to complete every exercise in tremble training.

Edit Audio

When recording the audio on the zoom recorder you most leave yourself a few seconds of free time at the start of the recording s that it will be easy to edit. I will tell my expert that in 5 seconds in can being talking, I will then press record my expert will wait the 5 seconds and any noise that I may have made pressing the record button or sitting back down on my seat can be easily edited out. I will repeat this process at the end of the piece when the expert is finished talking. For editing the audio the program that I would like to use is Pro Tools. Pro Tools is a digital audio workstation for OS X, developed and manufactured by Avid Technology. It is a very powerful program that gives the best results if effects are needed editing audio. But because I am not always going to have accesses to the Mac Lab that contains Pro Tools I have downloaded a PC program that will edit the audio the same way Pro Tools would but I will not be able to put effects on to it if they are needed, this program is ‘Audacity’. Audacity is a free digital audio editor and recording application, available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and other operating systems. It is just as good as Pro Tools when it comes to editing audio and I was not planning on putting any effects on the voice over’s so I think I should be ok.

 

Edit Audio over Exercise Video’s

When all audio is complete and edited it will be time to edit over the exercise videos that will be created. The program that I am going to do this on will be Final Cut Pro. Final Cut Pro is a non-linear video editing software and will allow me to log and transfer video to my hard drive (internal or external), where it can be edited, processed, and output to a  variety of formats. I will be importing the exercise videos when thay are completed and then the audio that I have to recorded and trying to edit them in a way that the instructions that are expert is giving to the user will make sense on the video and not be confusing to the user to understand.

 

Converted all finished video from .mov to .flv for flash

I have done some research on this and it is not as easy as you might think. If the finished edited videos with my audio edit over them are under 100mb then there will not be a problem, there are plenty of free online converters that I can use. But if they are over 100mb which I predict they will be it is going to be more difficult but after doing a little research online I figured out a way of doing it without paying.

 

1.    First thing I have to do is set up a youtube channel for tremble training.

2.    Next I will have to upload all finished videos to this you channel

3.    When all finished videos are on youtube you most copy each video link one at a time

4.    Next I will have to visit http://www.ixconverter.net/

5.    Paste the link into its search bar on the top of the page

6.    Click .flv underneath the search bar

7.    Then just click covert

8.    When it is done grabbing the video click download

9.    When you do this it brings you to a plane screen where you can click anywhere and then skip ad will appear in the corner click the skip ad sign and the download will start.

 

At the moment this the only way I have found to convert files that are over 100mb to .flv for free, I will continue to keep looking for an easily way but if it has to be done this way then so be it.

 

In conclusion all of my 9 sections are very doable with editing the audio from our expert over the finished video and to be the hard part to accomplish, due to the fact that the audio will have to try and match what is happening in the video. I am looking forward to the challenge of completing it.
