For this final draft, I changed almost everything. I updated my script to John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural Speech. I also found better sound effects. My cannon stayed the same, but I changed to a different applause that was old fashioned sounding. I also decided to change the song from My Country ‘Tis of Thee to The Star Spangled Banner. For recording in Garage Band, I decided I like the Female Basic effect the best for sounding like a speech. I recorded a few takes with a few different effects and put it together in Audacity. I used fade in and fade out the most. For the cannons I used the normalize effect so it wouldn’t overpower the noise of the song.
