    There's nothing quite as creepy as a child saying something sinister... so here ya go.

    My five year old (with the help of some pitch adjustment) is saying "you're running out of time"

    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=32167

    I'm afraid the other stuff you're looking for - (if they're samples from the movie) will not (or should not) be found on freesound.

    But - on that note - if you requested certain phrases that sounded LIKE quotes from the movie - that would be ok I think.

    Let me know if that worked. (the original with no pitch adj is here: http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=32168 )

    OOOPS! Forgot: good vocal mics are pretty easy to fin at GuitarCenter InstrumentPro and MusiciansFriend - all ".com"s. MONITORS: the BEST, I think, are Behringer Truth active matched pairs (2030's or 2031s?) - again at those three gear websites.

    Hi there! There are a few really good recording programs out there. I use Adobe Audition 2.0 ($349 from Adobe, $149 student price). There is also Sony Acid Studio 6.0 (I think was around $120 - maybe less). Both work on the same principle that you create single "tracks" of each sound/instrument in record/edit mode that you want, and then combine them in the "mix." Adobe's tutorials are great. Sony doesn't have oner but may be a simpler program. You can download a free trial of Audition and it is well worth it! You get 30 days to try it out, then you either buy it or your trial expires (which is really that you can still use it, but you have to go through a few hoops to get back into the program).

    For actual gear between your instrument and your computer: you will need an outboard mixer and direct box for anything. Behringer makes wonderful products. And not too expensive generally. There is a guy on Ebay who sells some inexpensive gear and also a very helpful downloadable booklet on building a home recodring studio. Do a search there and contact him. he is honest and fair and has experience and good advice. I bought a sound card and a mixer from him (both new) for under $150!!!! Plus, he's open to questions....

    Hope this helps somewhat. Good luck!

    Hmmm okay. I can ask him, but I can't say for sure if he will agree.
    I will investigate the possibility of bribing him with tacos.

    I'll be sure to show these to Jack (the guy who spoke for my recording.)
    He'll probably think they are wierd but whatever. grin

    When he first did his recording, did you notice that voiced it rather than whispering as in the original. Nothing wrong with that, because I found something interesting to do with it.

    But do you think you could get him to do another one, and whisper it this time? Even a hoarse whisper would be fine -- just have him listen to the original again and imitate it as closely as possible. Then I could try putting something together with his two versions together. It might be interesting...

    And, of course, anyone else can still submit new files for this; please go here for details.

    Thanks...

    I need "you're running out of time" slow, steady, deep and kind of creepy, also does anyone know where I could possibly get some Saw(the movie) samples or where I could sample it myself.

    Once again I will return any favor possible for this sample, oh and I swear I will actually use it this time.

    I had an image in my mind of the sentinels from the matrix, crawling all over the sounds.

    yesterday i figured out what was killing freesound: googlebot!

    it was crawling thousands of pages @ freesound!

    so, i made some changes and everything should be a bit better now.

    I hope it'll stop destroying the database performace soon, but killing access to google seems like a really bad idea, so let's sit tight and wait for it to lose interest! smile

    I threw out my dot matrix YEARS ago... but I know where a daisy wheel typewriter is - so I'll try and record that on Monday or so.

    Sounds interesting. There are some cool printers on Freesound but I don't recall seeing anything specifically of a dot matrix.

    Wish I knew someone that still had a working one so I could record it. smile

    Yeah I recall something similar. I think you can work around it by clicking "pan+user zoom" right?

    I'll have to try reproducing this again.

    Just off the top of my head, I'd reccomend that you try a dedicated FTP client instead of the FTP applet if that's what you are using. Search around, there are some good reccomendations here depending on your platform.

    This does appear to be an uploading problem, right? As in the FTP client gives you some error and the files don't show up in the Freesound description area.

    krish, you might want to look into Splice for that kind of functionality.
