BBP's Favorite Audio Tools

A while ago we did a blog post about favorite audio tools our Boom Box editors enjoy and are using lately. New plug-ins, techniques and libraries are coming about all the time so I thought I'd check in with some of them now to see if there are any new tools they could share with us.

Summer is here, and that means new interns have joined the team here at Boom Box Post! They've already started to learn from editors, record sound effects and have a lot more ahead of them. This week, we'll sit down with intern Katie Maynard to learn more about her and her interest in sound.

Intern Recording Challenge

In this months Inside Sound Design I wanted to give our new interns some unsupervised Field Recording experience.  I sent Colin Grant out with a stereo recording rig and instruction to capture a minimum of 3 distinct sound recordings.  He did a great job and learned a lot, so let's what he has to share about his adventures.

Boom Box Intern Spotlight: Liz and Amanda

Here at Boom Box Post we have an exciting internship program that runs throughout the year. During the program each of our 2 interns will shadow editors, record foley props and participate in a series of lessons encompassing the different sound services Boom Box provides.  This includes dialogue editing, sound effects editing, mixing and more.  For more information on our internship program click here.  We collect applications year round and would love to hear from you!

Our newest class of interns began about a month ago and have done a great job learning about sound editing and recording as well as showing their passion for sound.  We hope you enjoy this brief look into our program and our stellar interns: Liz Roman and Amanda Niles.

Creature Speech Sound Design Challenge: Part 2

The shocking conclusion of our 2 part vocal sound design challenge is here!  In Part 1 we asked several BBP editors to perform a non-english vocalization, and tell us about the imagined creature that created it.  For this post, we asked a few other BBP editors to process, twist and have fun with one of the clips in order to enhance the original vision.  Not surprisingly, they favored the clips with a lot of low-end information, and especially enjoyed pitch-related processing.  Check out the before and afters, plus each editors methods below!

Death by [Sound Effect]: A Halloween Sound Design Challenge

To celebrate Halloween in gruesome style we came up with a unique challenge for our editors: Death by Sound Effect!  To kick off the creativity, we asked the team to come up with bone-chilling, funny bone-tickling and gut-wrenching ways to die, and threw all of their ideas into a hat.  Each participating editor was randomly assigned a form of savage expiration, and encouraged to be creative in their approach to a sound effect representative of that event.
