31 - CHEAP SOUND FX IDEAS        

From: Bob Azevedo
Email: BobAzevedo@aol.com
Date: 04-Apr-99


Find a cheezy old keychain or toy device with any sound effects. Take it apart and wire it through the mixer in high input and hit record.

Watch a television program with interesting background music (cartoons, history channel, etc.) When you hear a part where there's no dialogue push record and you might be able to catch a good sample to loop.

Mess with the sound test options on video game consoles (Atari 2600, SNES, Sega Genesis, etc.) and sample them. Emulators should work as well.

Go to the electronics dept. at a thrift store. You might find a cheesy keyboard or an old chord organ. Those are good for sampling also.

Take a stereo-capable microphone into your garage. Find some really loud equipment that sounds percussive or sounds like it could be used for a melody. Metal and glass make good bass and synth sounds.

Good luck with this!
