    Hi, I've been working in the fanfilms area for a while, and realized I have a semi decent voice. I've got an Idea for an audio drama, and I was wondering what I'd need to get started, what the recommended resources are, etc.

    I currently have a Descent sound recording setup, but what do I need for software? I have adobe premiere, but I don't know if it has enough capabilities.

    Are there any sites that have free sounds? I.E. footsteps, doors, steam locks, etc.

    All help is appreciated, thank you.

    For software I suggest something like Adobe Audition, or SoundForge. Do Not.... I REPEAT! DO NOT use Windows Audio Recorder (Unless all your lines are under 60 seconds, which I doubt they are).

    For free sounds, do a search on google, and ceck out the TFN Sound database (although its all star wars).

    Paladin, I'd recommend this [link=]link[/link] to start. You'll find links to sound effects sites like my favorite,, how to make a pop filter, mics, etc.

    Basically, when I worked on Rise of Nobility, I had to learn the basics how to make an audio drama. Tony Palmero has some good info on the web. As far as equipment, a computer...a decent mic, a pop filter, and a tracking program like Vegas Audio or Vegas Video and a sound editing program like Sound Forge. You might also use an external mixer if you want to really avoid hum issues that usually crop up with recording from a computer.

    Then there are plugins like Noise Reduction 2.0, VintageWarmer, etc. that use Direct X technology to work in programs like Sound Forge.

    Be sure to check out [link=] [/link] for more info.
