NGAPA15, what does it mean? It's the "Newgrounds' 15th Audio Portal Anniversary" and I'll tell you what it means. We're celebrating the Audio Portal's 15th birthday with an audio drama and you can be part of it! This super-collab kicked off with an amazing script and is now moving into its next phase. We invite anyone to join us on this experimental journey into sound design. All we we ask is that you have at least some basic recording knowledge and a decent bag of tricks you may use to create or manipulate sound.
Now, I should mention this collab is pretty huge and in order to make sure that this SFX collab won't turn into a giant mess, I've made sure to prepare SFX "roles" beforehand. I did this to make sure the protagonist's footsteps will always sound the same, but this may also apply to a character's robotic limbs or the sound of someone's doorbell. We want to stay consistent in our sound!
But these roles can wait until a later stage of the project. For now we will be focusing on trivial noises. A walkie talking switching on, organs and blood hitting the pavement, a trashcan catching on fire. You name it, we've got it!
* Don't steal sound! You are only allowed to heavily edit other people's work so as to create a completely new sound. Some audio is allowed (such as war noises or historical figures giving a speech), as well as anything that finds its roots on Newgrounds. When in doubt, just ask.
* For recorded audio, we don't accept anything that pops the microphone (caused by wind or otherwise), or gets so loud it starts clipping. We also ask that your recordings are free of noise (static or otherwise), unless of course they are supposed to be.
* We recommend you export/record your samples at 24bit and 48khz, our production team would really appreciate it! The threshold is 16bit and 44.1khz. Anything below it will definitely not be permitted. Just upload the files, send them over to me and I'll make sure they end up where they belong. You will of course be credited.
* Have fun!
* Get creative.
* The sky is the limit.
Soon I will post the first batch of sounds. Come and join us if you will! Hope to hear from you soon!
