Audio Digitizing

This exercise is designed to familiarize you with digitizing sound for the web. There are a number of examples on .xroads of what we've done in the past:

For some time I've been collecting OTR (Old Time Radio) tapes and cds of radio programs from the 1930s. One of the most interesting of these is the March of Time, and we have a good deal of that material already. But I have 5 more that need doing. In addition, I have three other tapes of various kinds and kinds of interest. I'll bring these to class and parcel them out.

Take these to the DMMC and digitize them as QuickTime .mov files, self contained and hinted for streaming.

When you're done, ftp them to your individual folder in xroads ( F: drive, MA05 folder). You might check out the folder beforehand just to make sure that I've actually got the permissions right.
