Telephone Effect

The effect I chose to do on audacity was to make it sound like a telephone call. I was looking at tricks on the internet and couldn’t find anything too exciting, but this one stood out to me. It’s a simple way to enhance the listener’s experience. In my project, this effect isn’t essential, but some of the projects we listened to in class might benefit from this tip.

  1. Pick the clip you want to work with.
    I chose a selection from my conversation with my mom
  2. Go to effects and choose Equilization
    The equalizer window will pop up. It looks like this:

  3. Select the radio button: Graphic EQ
    The screen changes to this:

  4. Adjust the levels so they’re all at their minimum, except for the ones in the range between 500 Hz and 2000 Hz

  5. Click OK
  6. Select Amplify from the Effects menu
  7. Leave the default settings, and hit OK

That’s all there is to it! You now how a “telephonized” voice recording. This could set the scene, without you having to explain anything! I hope this was helpful!
