Step 1: What Do Guitars Have to Do With Halloween?
The type of distortion I am referring to is the kind seen heavily in the youtube series Marble Hornets. (Which, by the way, if you haven't seen before, I highly advise checking out. Scariest shit of my life.) Even if you haven't seen it, try watching up to Entry #6. If you don't get dragged in, fine, not everyone does. However, it'll at least give you an idea of what I'm talking about.
Step 2: The Real Step One
Step 3: I Skipped the Installation Process, It's Relatively Simple Enough.
To start our little project, simply click Project -> New Audio Track.
Step 4: Sine Wave Alert
What I did however, was recreate the Emergency Alert System warning tones. If you'd like to start the same way, click tone. It will ask you the type of sound, frequency, and duration. I kept the sound at sine. For the first of the two frequencies, set it to 853. Now add another track and make the next sine at 960. The duration of the two is up to you.
By this point, it should look like this (Warning: Don't try listening to it. You'll probably go deaf due to the extreme volume):
Step 5: Negative Amplifying
After you lower it, lower it again the same way. Then repeat on the other track. It should look like this by now:
Step 6: White Noise
Step 7: Gverb and Amplify
After that, you can use the amplify technique from before (how useful is that thing?) with the exception of only aplying it once. After that, Gverb and amplify again. From there, I typically highlight random sections of the white noise to gverb amplify.
Step 8: Rape the Ears of the World
That is basically all I know on this topic at the time being. If I ever find out more tricks, I'll add them in here. But really, you have the whole internet at your disposal, surely you can't rely on just me? Now go apply this to your project!
