The Kanga Sound Editor is a freeware program that offers terrible synthesized sound effects like "monster breathing" and "laser gun drum," all recorded from the bowels of a wretched cybernetic hellscape. At best they seem suitable for some garbage indie game, yet the developer insists KangaSound can be used to create beautiful music. To prove it, he's made five (5) slightly different versions of the same music video, all of which sound like a collaboration with a toddler banging on a Speak & Spell. He's also trying to round up volunteers to help him record an '80s-style pop album using the program. Spots are still available, if you can believe it!
To make KangaSound stand out from all the other incompetently designed software-developer pages, he has gone "all in" on a stupid, cutesy kangaroo motif. The site is supposedly run by Roo and Joey, two "super-talented kangaroos." Roo is clearly the brains of the operation, whereas Joey is like a horrible Australian redneck or something. Here he is explaining the system requirements:
eye fink yew kneed to get a java runtyme henvironment vershon sicks or layter four appley mac ten, and java runtyme henvironment vershon sheven or layter four windoze or leenuks.
And here's Joey describing the album of "Kangaroo music" he made with Roo using the program:
dis first cd usin kangas sownd eddytor. u can mayk musik wiv it yawself, no needin 2 play musik fingys yawself!
