This sound is a fully artificial fire effect made in Pure Data and is based on an example in Andy Farnells book Designing Sound. It's made by filtering and modulating white noise (subtractive synthesis). I've modified it and made it stereo. After writing it into a file I made some edits (start/end fade etc.) in Sound Forge Pro. If You want to make it an eternal flame ... it's perfectly loopable ;)

PS: One advantage of synthetisis is that there are absolutely no unwanted sounds (like interfering noise one might get by recording a fire out in the field).


For tips on how to attribute please have a look at my profile page.

I would like to hear the results of what you've done with my sounds. So send me a link within a message or put it in a comment, if you like. Thank You!

    also, i've sort of been wanting to try pure data, this is an interesting example of what can be done with it
