The sound of a geiger counter. Simulated, using Benboncan's beautiful click sound and bash and sox to create a semi-random, organic feel to it.

    Thank you, but due to your excessive stipulations, I'll have to pass and choose from one of the many, many other geiger sounds here...

    Hi Iwan!
    I would like to use your Geiger Counter sound but it is impossible for me to include any text. We're making a super short (5 secs) animation for a logo (so any other text on the screen is not really working). Are there any other way we could use it?

    Kind regards,
