How To - Create Laser Sound Effects


Ever wanted to create laser sounds similar to that of Ben Burtt's iconic Star Wars blasters?  Well, look no further! Using nothing more than a microphone and a few household items you'll be creating your own iconic sounds.

Unlike the Stormtroopers, our blasters won't be created by recording the sound of a hammer hitting the guy wires of an antenna tower, we'll be using a much simpler method.

Here's what you'll need for this tutorial; a Microphone,  audio editing & recording software, a metal Slinky, garden wire (or tape) some scissors a pen and finally some cardboard.
