Editing Audio

Audacity

Audacity is a free digital audio recording and editing software available on all Cline Library computers or by visiting https://www.audacityteam.org/. Audacity is an ideal program to use if you have no experience editing audio but need to increase audio volume or clarity, clean up your audio, add effects, or reduce background noise.

Audio Assets

Want to add some extra audio or video elements to your video project to add character and make your project look more professional? Then Creative Commons assets are for you! Unlike most audio and video files you find online, Creative Commons files are free and can be used for educational purposes without any pesky copyright issues. This is because the creators of these assets specifically chose to make their files open and available for use. Just be sure that the files you use are actually listed as Creative Commons! Visit https://creativecommons.org/ to learn more about the different types of Creative Commons licenses or check out the links below to find creative commons files that can easily be added to your video.
