Yerfdog Bark, Howl, Etc! (Audio Contest)

BARK, HOWL, ETC.

Let's make sure you can win things in every possible way this month! This contest is simple: choose any Monster Card (you don't have to own it), and record audio of yourself being that monster! The best one will win a Purple Monster Card.

Rules And Details:

1. You must email your audio to me (jamul@hamumu.com) before October 23rd. Be sure to tell me which monster it's for.

2. Your audio can be in any digital format, MP3 preferred. I will convert non-MP3s to MP3.

3. Keep it under 1 minute.

4. Your audio doesn't have to be simply your own voice, you can use any source of sound that is useful for what you are doing - EXCEPT video games of any kind. Of course!

5. On October 23rd, I'll share all the audio files on the forum, without noting who made which. There will be thread for people to vote for their favorite!

6. The one with the most votes on October 30th is the winner and receives a random Purple Monster Card!

Can you use editing software to edit your voice?

You can do anything you want to create the sound file, as long as it doesn't include putting in video game sounds!

A silly question, to be sure, but what if they're sounds from sound libraries?

Like, the very collections video games often derive *their* sounds from?

I ask since, as an aspiring sound engineer, I have quite a few of these and I need to know if they're fair game to use or not.

Just curious.

I would say that's not what you should do... The intent is that you use your own sounds, whether that's your voice, or your friends, or your cat, or smacking a broom into your bed. You know, the way professional audio technicians created the original Dr. Lunatic sounds anyway! Be a foley artist.
