In Shakespeare\'s time, people used basic \"live\" sound effects, such as machines that made thunder.
Live musicians play music and effects.
Digital recording is now used and can be operated through a computer.
In Macbeth, noise is an important element and is often used as an impact value-just as the owl screamed when Duncan was murdered.

The Thunder in the witch scene;
The last battle.

In Macbeth, it depends on the director\'s vision.
