YouTuber Oliver Clark did a nice cover of the theme song for Netflix's latest hit show. Stranger Things is awesome on many levels for fans of Sci-Fi, Horror, the 80s, and especially sound design! My husband and I binge watched the first half of it this weekend; which is something we very rarely do for any TV show.
The Stranger Things Theme is so good, I thought I'd try to recreate it in GarageBand!
How to rip audio from my videos! I have received a lot of questions from people asking me, if there are any apps that would allow downloading audio from YouTube videos?
The answer to that question is no. There aren't any apps that would allow you to rip audio directly of YouTube. However there is a workaround using safari, Dropbox, AudioShare and the online mp3 converter site listentoyoutube.
