After the class created Ice Cream Original, I downloaded the audio files that we were working with in Audacity.

From here I took the tracks in a new direction, creating “Ice Cream Dubstep.”

The vocals are the same as the original, just modified with¬†“stretch and pitch”¬†using Adobe Audition. The gong sound and the ice cream truck melody are also altered with Audition. I removed the applause, and I added in two dubstep tracks from Freesound, “dubstep_drumloop_crunch” and “dubstep growl.”

Adding the tracks to Audition was easy, but it was a little tricky to make them melodic. Within Audition I zoomed-in and examined the waveforms in order to line-up the tracks so they hit on the proper beats.

I also uploaded Ice Cream Dubstep to Soundcloud. Using Adobe Illustrator I made a quick graphic for Ice Cream Dubstep using an ice cream poster pack purchased from Creative Market.
