    I have too many projects going on right now to collaborate, but I made this piece as a guided meditation for a class I took in mindfulness a few years back. You're welcome to use it if you like. It starts with a soundscape meant to take you from the outer world to the inner world by following the sounds of walking outside, entering a building, then entering a room, quieting, and hearing your heartbeat, and then the actual music starts:

    I don't have a mic right now, so I can't record this personally, but I have a recording I took about a year ago of a children's toy saying a lot of words, and it says apples twice. Once with a whole chorus of children, and once just with a woman's voice. The speaker is pretty low quality, but it might help.
    If you need me to trim it down so it's just the word apples, please let me know.

    Unfortunately being Dyslexic I cant read that without adding an 'h' after the first 'p', swapping the 'g' and the 'l' and visualizing a sexually predatory woman in a cat suit. (visualizing much easier to accomplish than describing the letterswapping.)

    I have no idea why I first went with hamster rather than feline.
    It was Cat woman's evil twin sister.

    Thinking about that, I thought it should be fairly easy to put together an analog box circuit to generate the warbles I had in mind, so I just went ahead and did it. Then I used Cool Edit Pro to FFT filter each piece to ensure it stayed within its band. The result is upload as this sound: TestWhinnies (I called them "whinnies" because at certain speeds and frequencies they started out sounding like a horse whinny). If it's of interest, KajRam, I could supply the analog box file and you could modify all the parameters to your liking.

    If you limit the frequencies to such a narrow band, you no longer have the "interesting" sound you started with (unfortunately). Narrow enough and you just have a fuzzy sine tone. You might try just having an wavering (FM) sine within each band of interest, perhaps with a change to the speed of modulation and/or the carrier tone itself. Plus, some reverse echo/reverb might make it odd enough to catch attention.

    I've been intrigued too.

    Thought there might be clues on social media, so wrote an algorithm for an automated search.
    Unfortunately it got stuck in an infinite iterative loop when it found Twitter.

    Should have started searching on Duck Duck Go.

    Have eliminated Crows and Magpies. Corvidae have tough arses and don't line their nests.

    Looking at birds which eat Rabbits and Hamsters - like Hawks.

    Wibby.

    Another great resource of free sounds.

    Adobe is offering over 10 000 sound effects and over 1000 music loops / beds for free. All sounds and music clips are assorted by categories. They have 27 sound bundles and 33 music bundles in many categories. More info at their site. https://offers.adobe.com/en/na/audition/offers/audition_dlc.html

    When it says it is discarded is because the exact same file has already been uploaded. Changing the filename won't help. I think there was some kind of error and a moderation ticket was not created for one of your sounds. Now I've approved the 7 pending moderation and deleted the other. Try to re-upload the missing one now as it should work. Thanks.

    Ahh thanks I see 7 of the 8 files in pending now.

    However I am missing 1 file, I re-uploaded it and I got the error saying this file has been discarded by Freesound so it wont let me re-upload it. Should I rename the file and try again?

    Hi,

    I just re-processed some sounds that failed in the last hours. Can you check if yours are processed now?

    I suggest that you search chillout, ambient and other music from Jamendo.com, for example.

    Other site, which you can check is FMA. https://freemusicarchive.org/genre/Chill-out

    I uploaded several recordings, then the website gave me a generic error.

    I go to the pending page and see 8 sounds still processing for about 6 hours now. Normally recordings take about 5 minutes to process.

    Has something broke?

    First I recommend opening your mouth and putting pressure on your lungs. If you do these you will make a sound. The more pressure you give to your lungs. the louder the sound. If you mean how do I record a sound, you would need some kind of recording device. You can find real cheap ones on the internet these days. After you recorded a sound you can upload them through the yello 'upload' button on the top right corner of your screen.

    If you have any other question, feel free to ask.

    Hi

    I am an Audiologist who does baby and toddler testing. We often use a test called VRA test to assess hearing across main frequency bands 0.5 to 4 kHz. An adult can usually respond to a pure sine tone at each discreet frequency and we use this to determine the hearing loss, decide management and set hearing aid prescriptions. With children and those with additional needs such as Autism they may only respond to more relevent and interesting sounds. I am trying to create this with Sound Forge using synthesized sound but struggling as this is definitely not my area of expertise.

    Would it be possible for me to learn from someone, how to edit sounds and filter frequency bands from a pro?

    If anyone else has sounds such as
    1. music (in bands 0.5 to 1 kHz, 1-1.5 kHz, 1.5 to 2 kHz and half octave around 3 and 4 kHz I would be grateful. chimes, bells, tambourine and high frequncy rattles,
    2. animal sounds like geese, bird, and mouse (eee),
    3. Our Ling Sound test for speech sounds ah, ee, uu (owl), sh (baby sleeping), ss (snake)
    4. Environmental sound like door bell,snore, whistle, bark, police car, rain, clap

    5. Other sounds I am wanting to edit are action sounds, like you would hearing in children videos/movies, laugh, plop, and slurp, Weeeeh (when you going down a slide), Woh (to express shock), woo (disappointment), aha, mmm (agreement), Woah! (happy ).
    6. The last sound I want to create in notch filtered NBN in each frequency band.

    All these sounds will not be completely specific to a frequncy band but using it based on the child's capabilities might go a long way to help assess hearing in our difficult cases and speed up their management.

    If you are interested in helping please let me know via this forum.
    I woudl be grateful for any help.

    Cheers,
    Kaj
