    @ seeyouinsleep
    Its more like a high end typewriter, something like the CIA mite use. [not that i have ever heard a CIA typewriter]

    @ Timbre
    Thanks but that one is not quite the sound i was after, more digital.

    The sound is hard to explain

    If you have ever played COD4 single player, they use the sound when they type text across the screen in game.

    haha, ae doesnt matter with pc's anymore it seems like, older ones control MIDI just fine and still sound amazing! I didn't know Linux had that much stuff, is it all cross compatible with Debian OS? It would b kinda cool to bring my dinosaur lappy with me next time to do something! 300mhz of pure power! and 128gig ram... w00t~ The interface wpuld just seem less likely to crash on you. Nice thread.

    Hey jivatma07

    That sounds great! Well you're not the only one with an old computer, mine is not what you would call state-of-the-art either. It's been some years since i did the switch, and i must admit i'm quite satisfied.

    I've also given rosegarden a go, but i don't like it that much, all though it's supposed to be quite powerful. Also i've tried vkeybd along with jack, some various synth software and patchage, and i really think it's great to play around with.

    As for sound hardware, i've recently installed a second soundcard along with my sb live, cause i couldn't fit all the mini jacks in a single card because of my 5.1 speakers. It works flawlessly side by side. One for output, and one for recording, and i like to think that the backgroundnoise is reduced a little.

    Ubuntu is also my choice, and has been for years. For about two weeks ago i installed 9.04, but kept my trusted 8.04 LTS on an other partition. The reason was, that i got an invitation to beta test this Ubuntu One thing, maybe you know it. But the minimum requirements was 9.04 and well, one thing led to another wink Other than that i've fooled around with debian, studio 64, opensuse and so on, but Ubuntu suits me best.

    Great to hear i'm not alone wink

    a graphic equalizer? I haven't got one of those ...
    There is something in Soundbooth under the Effects menu called:EQ Graphic, which could be what you mean.

    Yep that's it. If you play with the controls of the graphic equaliser (usually sliders) you will quickly learn its effect.
    The low numbers 100-200 (Hz) are the low bassy compontents of the sound, the high +5000(Hz) are the high hissy components.
    You can increase (boost) or decrease (cut) any of these components using the slider controls on the graphic equaliser.

    That's good because I just tried "Audacity" and it crashed when I tried to import the first sound file. (a .wav) So I don't think that's going to be much good.

    I'm going to get on with the animatic next so that my brother has something to work with - I'm hoping he's going to create some music for me.


    If you want music try CCMixter (it's like Freesound but entire tunes) ... http://ccmixter.org/

    Thanks I'll take a look at that.

    You have the tracks you want on your computer but you need something like a record scratch etc etc to go into the next song... I guess you just need an mp3 editor to mix those songs..

    Please help

    I'm new and can't figure out how to download a sample. Any advice?

    That might work with some processing but the rattle is a bit harsh for something that is worn over a shirt or in this case, leather armor. I prefer the beginning of the 27 coins wave file where the recordist shakes some coins in his hands. With that shaking, I can make it sound like someone is walking or jogging in that armor.

    Hello Kyster,

    i switched from my "long time Windows-and-Linux-co-existence" to "Linux only" a few weeks before and i do not really miss M$ Windhoze wink .

    Before that, i synthesized a few sounds for freesound on Windows - with the free "Soundforum Synthesizer" - and recorded them in real time with a simple audio-recorder from my SB Live! Soundcard.

    Now that i still can execute the Soundforum Synth with WinE, i don't miss that Synth, but i plan to record my (hopefully) own sounds of a Waldorf MicroQ Rack V.A. Synthesizer with Linux in the Future and i do not know, if and how that will work - maybe i need to test that in the near future. My Waveditor of choice is Audacity too - and an old Version of Goldwave, executed with WinE.

    For "music production" (i'm far from being a professional), i use Rosegarden (MIDI) and LMMS (to use VST-Synths and stuff like that) .

    For Compatibility and a faster OS, i have an older Linux on my hdd in co-existence with my current Linux, which i use for everything else.

    My current Linux, from which i'm writing this, is Xubuntu 8.04 LTS , which works more fluidly on this old Computer, than the current Ubuntu 9.04 .

    Soundfull Greetings,
    .Ingo.

    PS: Well, i used Ubuntu Studio 8.04 LTS before, but that was a bit too slow for me on this old Computer sad But it was nice - and if i ever will be able to buy a new PC sometime, i'll install Ubuntu Studio on that thing, i guess smile
