Sound Machine Sound Effects

A while back, David Burbank (also known as David from the Basement, DFTB and The Last Burbank) gave Luke a little sound effects toy called the Sound Machine (link points to Amazon). It’s a small red device that includes 16 different sound effects, each with their own button. Luke has played a number of the sound effects on recent shows; but, the audio quality left a lot to be desired. Thus, I had to procure the device for my own and record each of the sound effects myself.

Since the device doesn’t have a headphone jack or a line out, I had to record all of the audio from the device’s built-in speaker using the built-in microphone on my laptop. To reduce the amount of noise around me, I draped a blanket over myself, the laptop and the device on the laptop. I used Audacity to record all of the sound effects; then, I sliced and diced the sound effects up after tweaking the audio levels and passed it through an equalizer filter to lift the lower frequencies and trim the higher ones. The equalization was done to correct the thin audio quality coming from the built-in microphone.

I have labeled the sound effects by the row number (Rx), button number (By, from left to right) and my own description of the sound effect.
