Convert WAV files to MP3 Format With iTunes

This short slideshow reviews some of the steps you need to take to convert your Audacity WAV files over to MP3 format using iTunes. Once you convert your Audacity generated WAV files over to MP3 format, you will need to delete the original WAV files as they are very large files and take up valuable space on your hard drive.

Pandora Liner Notes and Sampler

Use Windows MovieMaker to create complementary liner notes for your Pandora Radio Compilations. MovieMaker affords you a few more bells and whistles than Google Presentation. If you have a headset/microphone you may add your voice to your liner notes project.

The liner notes/sampler above was assembled using Audacity for the audio and MovieMaker for the motion. First, create the audio sampler in Audacity by cutting and joining short musical statements from the hour long audio track. Export the audio sampler to your music folder. Try to keep the audio sampler under two minutes and thirty seconds.

Next, import the short audio sampler into MovieMaker. Create titles in MovieMaker to display the song titles and import photographs of the artists/composers.

See me if you have questions, ideas or suggestions.

All Aboard!

Here is an example of the "Liner Notes" all Digital Archiving students are responsible for creating. The "Liner Notes" serve as a complement to the Pandora Compilations that you are currently editing and compiling in class.

All students must create a Liner Notes presentation in Google Docs for each Pandora compilation your edit. The Liner Notes must be published and embedded onto your blog.

Today, you need to begin editing Pandora Radio Compilation #126 (Jazz). Click here for song list #126. See me for a copy of the actual audio file.
