    Thanks. I've been doing that.. spent hours trying to make a clean 0.2 sec sound that loops seamlessly with lo luck. I will try the software you mentioned and work on it some more. I was hoping someone with actual skills can bang it out with little to no effort. seems simple.

    thank you for the reply. The 1 sec thing is actually too long for cases where the user does some precision bursts. It makes it look like a dubbed over foreign movie smile

    There is a lot of white noise uploaded on this site, which you can find here:

    http://www.freesound.org/search/?q=white+noise

    You can always trim down the track and make it loopable yourself rather easily with the free software Audacity (within which you can also very easily create the white noise yourself, using 'Generate' -> 'Noise', trim it down to a few seconds, and shift+click the play button to see if it loops seamlessly).

    It might be tricky to create one that loops effectively at 0.2s long, so I recommend at least a second long.

    I recently purchased a DIY music box kit from a website which I will not link to here. If you watch this video(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzh-MMnLG70&feature;=related) you can see that it has a serious design flaw: it has a tiny hand-crank, and it's thus next to impossible to play your custom tunes at a constant rate. The thing sounds like crap for this reason alone.

    I'd like to automate the crank with an electric motor, since I am under the impression that it's pretty hard to make your own wind-up music box (difficult to get the wind-up mechanism to turn at a constant rate, involves fans and other intricate timing mechanisms, etc).

    So it doesn't take much torque to turn the crank, but it needs to be turned approximately 100-150 times per minute in order for the music to sound decent. What kind of motor am I looking for? It should be relatively small, so I can fit it in the wooden music box I'm making along with the musical mechanism itself and whatever other contraptions I need to put it all together. I'm also pretty noob with electronics, so I'd prefer not having to put together my own circuit board or anything; at most I'd like to just make a few solders and hook up the battery, then snap on a few widgets & gears and pump out those tunes.

    What kind of motor(http://www.kynix.com/Product/Cate/757.html) should I use?

    Helly everyone,

    I'm once here again in the forum section because I need your help.
    I've always been a huge fan of Wizards of Waverly Place and even today it's still one of my favourite shows.
    But one thing that always fascinated me was: The Sound Effects.
    Yes, the magical sounds used in the show.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oROKpT015eg&feature;=youtu.be

    This link directs to a video containing 6 sound samples.

    Now, how were those sounds created?
    And is it possible to reproduce them?

    I'd love to hear your recreations and find out what produces these sounds!

    YES film discussion.

    10 Cloverfield Lane was such a well-acted movie on such a small set. I remember rarely leaving the edge of my seat the entire second half. Crazy that it was not even produced to be a Cloverfield movie in anyway whatsoever, but was rather given that association thanks to (I believe) JJ Abrams picking up on it?

    From a soundtrack standpoint I seriously need to recommend the sci-fi movie Oblivion. First selfishly, I am a serious sucker for M83's Anthony Gonzalez and the romantic routes he took with his music. This film was basically his film music premiere, after his last album finally gave him broad mainstream success. He scored the soundtrack with an experienced composer Joseph Trapanese, which helped since Gonzalez had worked thematically before but never on a full movie. In interviews he had always mentioned this being a dream of his however, and so enjoying this movie after M83's album "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming" pushed him into the spotlight just felt like you were riding along with him to a glorious peak of fame.

    Secondly, and more importantly, the soundtrack stands on its own as unique and creative. I remember a few weeks back watching a youtube video on the inauthenticity of Hollywood scores and how many pieces are in fact just stolen from other movies because they sound similar and fit the scene. Guess designers put in a prior made piece to see if the director likes the mood, and sometimes the director will just be like "do it like that one." This made me so mad. It just reinforces the notion of sound use in absence of meaningful purpose.
    So I watched Oblivion again for probably the 20th time. In Oblivion it feels like the soundtrack/score was built around the story, each track purposely laid out and the main theme noticeably underscoring several key uplifting moments in the movie. PLUS the title track features Susanne Sundfør who is a total fox and amazing singer. Hell, they scored a dueling drum battle into a song purely because (they wanted to) they felt the scene required it to help build a sense of conflict and anxiety.
    I don't know I just feel the creative forces from Gonzalez as originally a studio musician and Trapanese as a film composer dancing together throughout.

    And ya know, the story itself is fairly interesting too.

    Ah, but where would it fit though? (if I don't understand your question correctly, forgive me) I can't see an appropriate forum category. Kinda the reason I created another blog, but I'm not in the mood for updating it at the moment. The list is still quite long.

    That's the thing, it won't fit anywhere else, thus it's fitting right where it is wink


    Just keep it up, and wait. The important thing is sharing your film experiences.
    I will help as much as possible to keep it on the surface of "off topic".

    Yeah, i'm patient. I'll be updating periodically as I said with a post to revive so it doesn't get lost. I would appreciate if it wasn't just two losers using the forum to have a private conversation. XD

    Anyway. as a side note, I managed to catch up on Westworld. the season finale blew me away. The audio design and soundtrack in that show is really something worth raving about. I'm not sure if you've seen any of it...

    P.S. I did get round to watching Anomalisa and also 10 Coverfield Lane, just forgot to mention in the other thread.

    Anomalisa was quite good, it wasn't really doing anything for me, except amaze me at the quality of model animation. It was an interesting concept i'll say but I just found it quite boring for lack of a better word.

    As for 10 Cloverfield: I absolutely loved it. 9/10 movie in my opinion (maybe that's too generous) but it pushed all the right buttons. The ending was very unexpected.

    You can add a picture to a sound pack by the way which will function as a heading image. This is done in the pack description text box (thus you can describe them too).
    This is one of my packs for reference https://www.freesound.org/people/Headphaze/packs/9878/

    In the description text box (the one you get when clicking on "edit pack information") enter this HTML code to embed an image:

    note that it must be a direct link URL which will end with the image format e.g. http:\\i.imgur.com/xxxxxx.jpg

    This will also work in sound descriptions, in forum posts and in forum signatures. Be careful of the size though because the image will appear at the size of the source and not be resized to fit the web layout, so if it's very large it will be clipped off the right side of the screen.

    Hope this was helpful; sorry it's a bit a late reply smile

    looking for a 0.2 sec white noise sound that can be continuously looped seamlessly. seamless is important because it will be played while the button is down for as long as the player needs.

    its not the only thing they could fix. as example uploading is a pain in the ass and sometimes describing two files means it still doesnt work or the upload stays incomplete.

    a lot of things could be done easier here. but i guess you cant get good service when it comes free.

    Daring Freesounders

    Are there any daring Freesounders still around?
    In case there are, why not start 2017 with a dare?

    I ask you one question: what were your sonic achievements in 2016?
    Can you put them together in a musical piece or sonic collage?

    Lets see what we get by the end of Jan 2017. I guarantee we will have at least one entry...

    Hello,

    I have been looking for the Palm Treo 650 "DING dong DING dong" default SMS tone for a long time, but with no luck. I have heard that it is possible to extract the sound files from a PalmOS backup, but I no longer have a computer with a backup, nor a Palm Treo device to make a backup from. Does anyone have access to any of the above, or just the audio files for this tone?

    Thank you in advance,
    Brian
