For this assignment, we are supposed to use four sounds from CDNIS, and a drum rack with tow apple or self-created loops. We are supposed to use different types of plugins such as master Echom, channel EQ pedalboard etc. to make the CDNIS sound sounds better. We still take a screencast that shows that I have things above.
The four sound that I used for the project is Ms.Adair saying happy April fools day; me shaking my wallet; the sound of knocking a sheet music stand; me saying oh hi there, this is me. I used all of my sounds except me saying oh hi there as a beat. I use that sound as a trigger to make the song more exciting
The scale that required is to know where to find the plugins are, how to use a Midi Keyboard to create a drop loop.
The challenges that I have overcome are: creating the drop loop, it takes me a long time to think for the loop and make sure everything that is in the loop is in the right place is the hardest part of this task. Then I have the challenges is to use the right sound of CDNIS in the right place.
In this assignment, I have learned how to use garage band to simply remix music by adding extra loops and change the original song provided. I didn’t do it very well because the final product doesn;t have a very good rythme.

Are handmade products an effective way of minimizing environmental impact? Why and Why not?
I don’t think that handmade product an effective way of minimizing environmental impact, because there is a chance of failure when people handmake things, and if they failed, it costs more resources and makes the climate worse.
From my summative task, I know that preparing for the a task is very important. I think that if you are not prepared for the thing that you are working on, you will get a pretty bad score for it. I still learned that my food choice not only affects mew, it affects the world socially, environmentally, economically, and politically. From that I know I need to have a better food choice for a better future. So my food choice is very important all the time. I know that time managing is very important to. If you have a bad time management, everything won’t be under your control.
