Edited Audio

Here is the edited audio from my interview with University of Wyoming Senior middle defender Alison Clarke before her final home game as a Cowgirl. She talks about her college career and transferring from one Division 1 program to another.

Editing the audio from my interview with Alison Clarke was enjoyable. There were no major hiccups while working on the track that I encountered.

I used GarageBand to edit the audio because I have a MacBook Pro. After watching a brief tutorial on how to use GarageBand I was quickly able to start editing the interview. The program was generally intuitive and easy to correct mistakes on.

I enjoyed listening to the final result after working for a while to decide which clips I was going to choose. It was rewarding listening to my final product after hours of work because it sounded like I had planned for it to.

I did not like trying to find the export function in garage band. It took me a while and I felt it was not in an intuitive spot. This was only a minor inconvenience as once I figured it out I did not have trouble fining it again

When editing I was surprised how much audio of Alison I had managed to collect. The interview was on the short side but when I cut myself out I still had nearly 4 minutes of her responses. I was glad that was the case because some shuffling and banging could be heard in some of the clips and I did not have to use them.

I wish that I had not got some of the random noises in my recording. While I was not forced to use any tracks with those problems, I feel I could have recorded the interview again and avoided having my hand forced picking certain clips.
