Using garageband I made two rain audio clips and the 3 beeps that can be heard at the beginning of the track. The main music that is heard on the track was made using soundtrap.com.
Surround reverb was used on the audio loop of the cheering, as I removed talking from the clip so we could only hear the cheering in the background, highlighting part of the waveform and then using the backspace button to remove it. I have put some audio files in stereo sound by manipulating the volume and the right and left earphone wavelength.
This loop creates an atmosphere of excitement and tension which is mimicked at the beginning of the race. I added rain to the loop to create a sense of reality and depth, and to make the loop seem familiar to people so they connect to the loop, otherwise it could sound too artificial and over-synthesized. There are ambulance and police sirens to further add the validity that the loop is set in modern-day London. I used two different loops that I made in soundtrap.com, and overlapped each other to change the atmosphere of the loop which increases the tempo of the loop which also should mimic the users elevated heartbeat as they are nearing the end of the racetrack close to the finish line. The effects I used included different types of reverb to make the sound feel realistic and less ‘tin’ like. This level is set at night, with the rain using ‘pathetic fallacy’ (the weather creates the atmosphere and reflects the mood) to foreshadow what the outcome will be of the race.
