The music files were edited to be one-minute long and the audio files were edited to all be 5 seconds long. All files were converted to mp3 mono for simpler editing.

Other Notes

I developed these after doing remixes with students and teachers. There is an undue amount of frustration when first doing audio drama remixes because of problems with formats and files sizes. Keeping the lengths of the audio consistent gives teachers and students some flexibility when doing the tutorial and learning the procedures of the software without focusing an inordinate amount of time on technical issues.
