Oddly, this sound reminds me of something. MAybe not "reminds", because I have never heard the sound I am about to describe... but "makes me think of" is a better way of putting it.
It makes me think of the sound of a toilet flush cistern filling up with water, recorded and then heavily compressed as an mp3 file at very low bitrate. Maybe someone wants to recreate this sound using the method I suggest :)
Man, I wish this was on Soundcloud so I could comment on the timeline. - But hey, forget I said that. Don't post them there. No, no, no, no... Post here at Freesound so that we can download and further manipulate these beauties!
@AlienXXX: There was no EQ involved, just dehissing in Audition. And I've used a bit of algorithmic reverb only. Listening to these "DLL to audio" tracks I became prone to auditory pareidolia ;) - there is much more than violin and piano in them...
This file contains a lot more noise than the previous two. What I mean is that it contains more sections that sound almost like white noise. - But no less valuable, as it contains an enormous serving of amazing sounds to be mined out!
I am curious, there seems to be some EQing going on (that was also the case on the previous file). - would this have been from the de-essing? Did you use a convolution reverb? Again, another awesome file! - There seems to be actual instrumental sounds there (little violin screems, piano hits...) - This could be a piece by a modern composer.
Trebblofang, this is definetely one of the best databsends I have heard. I can tell the file has been processed (the de-hissing you refer to) as it now as a somewhat analogue character to it rather than the usual 100% harsh digital sound of a dll file converted to audio. - But, hey! I think it wounds wonderful.
Copyc4t, you are absolutely right. A dare could be run out of this file alone (hint, hint...) it is almost like it contains the full repertoire of sounds of the venerable Commodore 64.
