Description

Do you want to learn to edit audio to create professional sound effects? Or are you a game developer who loves to make games? But you don’t know where to start with learning about audio and sound? Or maybe you’re a video game composer who wants to dive into the world of sound design.

In the Introduction to Audio Editing for Games Course, we will teach you how to edit audio to create sound effects for games with the free program Audacity. We’ll teach about what makes up a sound, the basics of sound, and even create a sound effect with a free package of sounds that you can download from my sound library company website Blipsounds. com. We’ll be using these free sounds throughout the entire course so you can follow along with exactly what I am doing.

Then we’ll use the tools we learned from Audacity to teach about the different effects that are available in Audacity including Equalizers, Pitch Shifting, Compressors and limiters.

Then with all that we learned in the previous lectures, we will create a Laser gun sound effect a full audio scene soundscape where an alien UFO is chasing our character and he shoots back at it with his laser gun.

And you’ll get to watch me create all of this step by step so you can follow along and try making it yourself.

Getting started with making sound effects can be expensive and difficult, so I made this course to help people get started with sound design and audio editing without investing too much time or money.

So what are you waiting for? Get started and enroll today! Looking forward to seeing you there.

Course Director

I'm a sound designer and music composer who loves to work on creative projects. I have a Bachelors degree in Recording Arts where I learned to make professional sounds and music for video games and film. After college I did some freelance work and networking, and got my work placed in games on Steam, Mobile games, and even Television. Now I run a sound library called Blipsounds where I sell sound effects to game developers to use in their games.
