Video tutorial: How to create explosion sound effects in audacity
I noticed a lot of people hitting my previous entry about how to make explosion noises in audacity via various google searches, and so it occurred to me to make a video, which I think explains it a lot more clearly.
Note, the camera used, and the audio compression tend to knock out high frequencies, so you will see instances where I do things which in the video sound as if they have no, or very little effect, but that’s mostly due to the lousy audio quality of the video.
