    Thanks. I just noticed that Scott Lawlor layered this rather expertly in a few tracks of his "Plaugues" digital album (most noticeable in track 11). Very effective at being rather disturbing -- check it out on bandcamp at https://scottlawlor.bandcamp.com/album/plagues.

    Thank you for your reply! I downloaded and starting messing with Analog box and it's tutorials the same day I found this sound, but didn't actually take a good look at the page to see the comunnity posts :S. It's really cool, it's nice that you can mess low-level with the signal. I'll look for your patches and try to learn from them. Thank you so much! :D

    Thanks for the comment. This wasn't based on any reference, and I would guess that a real dentist would say it isn't realistic at all. But as with many "sound effects", it was focused more on the subjective experiential aspects, and upon my own memory, perhaps exaggerating or approximating key features of the perception while ignoring others. Your use of it suggests that some of that subjective aspect must resonate with others, despite not being based on actual drill frequencies or real recordings.

    thanks! I'm a clinical psychologist who uses this with patients who have dental phobias. So realistic.

    I used Analog Box for the sound, but then used Cool Edit Pro to do some post-processing to prepare it for use here. Freesound seems to cut off my comments as soon as they include a link to the site, but I'll try to include it here as plain text (if this comment is cut off here instead of continuing, then I'll just have to give up -- use PM): https://sites.google.com/site/analogbox2/

    Copy and paste to browse there, read about it, download it, etc., get the examples and tutorials, work through them if you wish, etc.

    While many people prefer to use older VST plug-ins with their analog box circuits (for such things as reverb), I prefer to create my own sub-circuits in Analog Box to do the job (especially reverb :-)). Despite being rather small in number, the community of Analog Box users is rather generous about sharing circuits, and I even posted to the group mailing list (years ago) one of the versions of the circuit used to make this (probably called ChoirBotN, where N keeps increasing as I make major modifications to the circuit -- I can't remember which one I used to make this particular sound).

    I was stuck for a uni assignment. You made me see the light with this!! May I ask in more detail the process and chains going to making this? I will make sure to credit you in the assignment report n.n

    @FD_Bratish, however, I would be happy to just grant you a license to include my sound in your derivative work, and then of course you can do whatever you want with that derivative work. I will even grant that FreeDoom can use it. You can even do all that without attribution, if there is some particular reason you can't provide attribution. I will even hereby affirm that I give you permission to include it in this work of yours with the understanding that said work is to be redistributed under the BSD license used with FreeDoom or a patch for it, or whatever. But I'm not interested in putting my stuff into the public domain.

    @FD_Bratish, thanks for asking. No, I will not put my work into the public domain just because FreeDoom is unwilling to provide simple attribution (which would cost them nothing).

    Hello! I am creator of sound mod for FreeDoom,
    https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/104732-total-sound-modification-for-freedoom/
    and authors of aforementioned game want to accept my work as a replacement for old sounds. However, it is important that sound from FreeSound.org is licensed by Creative Commons 0. Do you agree to change the license of this sound so that it can be inserted into FreeDoom? Waiting for your answer.

    Thanks. I'm sure the keepers of freesound will appreciate donations.

    Just to be clear, most of us who share sounds here are just end-users like yourself. You can also "contribute" by uploading sounds that you have created or recorded yourself, with the value of such contribution often being proportionate to how unique or useful the sound is, and how clear from unwanted noise and distortion. That kind of contribution helps expand the usefulness of the freesound repository. It's also a contribution of honor (sort of) when you follow the wishes of the sound owners by heeding their chosen license terms. But a monetary donation helps keep all of this publicly available for us all to benefit from (and of course, none of us user/uploaders see any of that money, but appreciate that the platform keeps running).

    Thanks again.
