    I tried to use my new tide sounds file in combination with field collected water sounds (waves, creek, etc.) and found that my file didn't fit in, but ended up creating a mix of the water sounds tied together with a synthetic organ-sounding file someone posted. I call the combination sound file "Water Symphony".

    I used the Adobe Audition to import as raw file and then export as MP3 to use with Audacity, which seemed to work. I'm going to post the new file "Sandy Hook Tides new".

    It used to be possible to do this using programs like Mathematica and MathLab.
    However, these are expensive programs to buy just to use for this purpose for the fun of it...

    Hi,

    I dont know if this will help in any way... but at least its very interesting.. smile

    Recently I stumbled upon a book written by Miller Puckette called:
    The theory and technique of electronic music.
    In the book he explains every thing you need to know about making sound the electronic way.
    There is a computer program thats also wrote by Miller Puckette based on the theory in his book... Quote:

    Pure Data (aka Pd) is an open source visual programming language. Pd enables musicians, visual artists, performers, researchers, and developers to create software graphically, without writing lines of code. Pd is used to process and generate sound, video, 2D/3D graphics, and interface sensors, input devices, and MIDI. Pd can easily work over local and remote networks to integrate wearable technology, motor systems, lighting rigs, and other equipment. Pd is suitable for learning basic multimedia processing and visual programming methods as well as for realizing complex systems for large-scale projects.

    Like I said am not sure this will be helpfull... there is a lot of hardcore maths involved.. so I didnt read the whole book jet...
    But Pd should be able to translate data into signal and vice versa..

    Yes, the whole "endiness" thing was throwing me off.

    I'll check out Adobe audition and see if it will work for me.

    Yeah bro, this sounds pretty close. I can sort of tweak it from there. Nothing like a little Reverb to accentuate the tone. I had pictured in my mind that deep voice you hear in those hollywood movie premieres to give it that humf.. . Nice

    Guilty.
    But unless you try you won't find interesting people. And it is easy to underestimate people. Of course, mostly you find people who fake knowing what you're talking about.
    For any Firefly/Serenity fans, remember the woman engineer Kaylee who gets all the guys with her engineer talk.

    Cool Edit aka Adobe Audition? (older versions, up to AA 3.0)

    Gah... my Python has become very rusty. sad

    I think the problem might be that there are various ways of storing fractions in computer memory (I presume the measurements aren’t just integers) and Audacity isn’t interpreting the raw data as you are expecting. Not to mention other variables such as big- versus little endianness, floating point precision and so forth.

    I used Visual Fortran, but no longer have a version that works with Windows8. I was able to write a binary file, that had the numbers, but it wasn't in the correct format for Audacity to read, resulting in some weird-sounding files (which are posted), but not what I believe they should sound like if properly written into the sound file.

    I can’t think of a way to do this that doesn’t involve programming, but it would be relatively simple.

    For instance, in python:

    >>> x = input()
    [user inputs something such as 3.14]
    >>> float(x)
    3.14

    I’ll see if I can write you something a bit more comprehensive.

    You wouldn’t believe how many people are actually like that, chiefly those on forums dedicated to the ‘gear sluts’ and ‘vintage synth’ enthusiasts of the world... (nudge nudge wink wink)

    I suspect most of these boys think that women are only useful for bringing them tea while they play with their hardware anyway. I remember this one thread which featured the not-at-all-sexist comment “What synth is most like a woman? One that’s expensive, unreliable and has buttons that are hard to push!” You’d think Delia Derbyshire had never existed.

    Mind you, tech-headery is hardly restricted to guys — a friend of mine loves to initiate conversation by talking about her favourite software testing methodologies...
