How to make a sound?
Here you have to use audacity to record something, for example scream, word, or some real instruments, when you have cleaned up your new sound, you can export this as and WAV file, and import this into swami. In swami you can connect that sound to a program change number, and at last export your new sound as an SF2 file, and use fluidsynth-DSSI-plugin in rosegarden and take in use your brand new sound. Isn't that cool?

Challenge your self, or your students to go out in the nature, or just find a sound to make it in use with rosegarden. to achieve this you can take in use Swami (aptituse install swami) there are something you have to be aware of, after you have installed swami, at this moment the swami do not add a menu entry in multimedia, this I hope some day will be fixed, but until that day you have to start swami in console, or pres ALT + F2 and type swami.

Swami have a nice GUI and looks like this:

Swami at this moment are under devlopment, so the version you have to use is abit old, but it works. The swami projekt can you take a look at here: http://swami.resonance.org/trac
