My Frequency 2156 Submission
I decided to emulate a military emergency broadcast for our Frequency 2156 world’s radioactive state:
Behind the Scenes
I wrote up a script to read and recorded my audio using an external USB microphone into Audacity.
From there, I modulated my voice to sound radio-like by following this unprofessional, but helpful YouTube tutorial. Note that the “FFT Filter” effect is now “Equalization” within Audacity.
From there, I added some layers of TV static, radio static, and radio tuning samples that I found on YouTube and extracted using the free “4K Video Downloader” software. You can also extract audio using this, not only video.
The radio tuning merges into the radio static to give you a sense you have just landed on a semi-clear channel. The TV static is constant throughout the broadcast to mask general frequencies and make everything sound more muddled.
