Perhaps there are some Moog VSTs you could use, and add to your mix after it is out of Reason?
ok, thanks allot...appreciate it
Oh yes! I've swung one of these once, quite impressive.
I'll try to record one if I get the chance, but it's a long shot (I know an Australian gentleman who owns several, but I rarely get a chance to see him.) Perhaps I can manage it this summer.
You Are A King!
It's a kind of sax breakbeat. Everything but the drums were made from the following sample:
It might be used in my group's upcoming album.
Hope you enjoy

And this video: bullroarer video footage
BIG NEWS...I've been working on a feature documentary about a drug addict poet for the past nine years or so on a shoe string budget.Just me and my wife as worker bees. I was almost done the fine cut when I was contacted by a jury member for a Canada Council jury that saw the project at the rough cut stage and apparently they were all blown away. Jury members can't contact applicants for a year.This was one month after the deadline for Hot Docs(The biggist North American feature film fest).
The jury member is a programmer for the festval and really wanted the film for the festival.I figured I was at least 4 months away from completion and I was going to enter next year,but I was given 1 week to finish the finecut and send it.It was accepted and I had one month to do the mix on protools LE.All hell broke loose and I did the worlds quickest audio mix.As an audio guy,I hate to see it go before it's perfect but I guess that's what the DVD is for.Due to CPU limitations and track limitations , I was doing bounces,mixs,deleting ,creating at a rate I never achieved before and not sleeping. I lost track of what samples were used and from where they came.I'm going to need help with this if I am going to attribute each sample with each member for the DVD release.There are many.I can nail down most of the users but as for which exact sample it will be quite difficult.
The film is 88min long so the current aiff mix is about a gig.Maybe I could upload a MP3 of it for the members to play locate that sample ?(for proper credits on the DVD sleeve) I had to submit the credits for the film a month and a half before I had finished the mix.So what I did was give Freesound a credit on the special thanks page.

We fear sensory deprivation, but instead find ourselves fearful and in terror of
sensory overload. We are immersed in the possibility of our own psychosis.
Bridges the gap between documentary and experimental: let yourself melt.
“ But who would know how to do this but thee, Darryl, weaver of dreams,
and beautiful imagery. Capture my soul, isn’t that what true film is. “
Director Statement, Darryl Miller:
Audience distance or comfort zone is purposefully destroyed. This is not a film to be analysed from a safe distance. It is participatory. The barriers that hold back the demons and shadows are let loose. We must overcome our primal instinct to run, and instead
melt into the experience and remember our sanity will return when the lights come on.
Dan is a poet, a morphine addict, searching for spiritual enlightenment, spiraling into oblivion. Many documentaries on drug addiction present one dimensional cardboard characters with no interest in anything except their next fix, stereotypically drunken, homeless, skid row bums. Any complexities in their lives as multi-faceted individuals are reduced to a safe distance from our own almost acceptable make believe middle class lives. They are the hopeless. There is no salvation. We remain safe, pure, and exempt because there can be no possible connection between us. We can judge, but not understand or participate.
I met Dan over 20 years ago, in our late teens. Dan was a poet. I was a musician. We were both experimenting with drugs. My interest was LSD, MDA, Coke and whatever else I could get. Dan got into morphine and other hard core drugs. We were both on a spiritual quest. I became heavily addicted to these mind expanding drugs and started having bizarre hallucinations, seeing spirits and experimenting with telepathy. I became delusional like Dan. Six years later I sought help and went to Detox and treatment twice. The spirits went away. I directed my energy to my music and finally a film degree. I have remained a friend of both Dan and his mother Helen.
In the late 90's , I started a soundscape/poetry project incorporating Dan's words and my music. During the project. I realized that the concept could be better utilized in film. The result is the 88 minute film "Dark One", and 45 minute audio soundscape CD , also called “Dark One”. Both works feed off and augment the other and will be sold together as one package.
Dan at a young age modeled himself after William Burroughs, and now regrets it. Dan's poetry and voice quality reflect this influence. His voice is hypnotic and often has an unearthly tone to it, like a bad dream. Not only has his poetry taken on a stream of consciousness style, but his whole life, moving from concise idea to literary roughness that is often brutally honest to a fault, and often crude and uncultured. His experiences, stories, memories constantly alter with each telling. There are however consistent themes that weave in and out and form his life and this documentary on his life. William Burroughs, poetry and artwork, the quest for spirituality, his addiction are the most obvious. However his family, friends and search for love and acceptance are also critical. His treatment, by the establishment, as represented by the police and lawyers etc. has further molded his attitudes, demonstrating the hypocrisy of those in power. As a result of an institutional tendency to hide problems, lock them away, instead of trying to help individuals or accept the true reality of living with a life situation. The prison experience has become more than personal. The legal taxation of drugs, alcohol and cigarettes versus personal use of drugs demonstrates to Dan and his mother a blatant double standard. Dan's mother, Helen, struggles with Dan's addiction lifestyle , and her own dark memories about her husband's alcoholism and her experiences in the Auschwitz concentration camp as a child. Lastly Dan's bird, a beloved member of the family, to Dan a symbol of freedom and unconditional love wanders about the kitchen, oblivious to everything but her toys and surrogate lover, a blue stuffed bunny.
Dan constantly attempts to achieve freedom: from society, from drugs, from himself. He has extreme moments of clarity and delusion. He has delusions of grandeur, thinking he can save the world, but then realizing he can't even save himself. He has been on the methadone program on and off, always getting kicked off due to abuse of the system. He has come to a belief that spirituality is his only means of redemption. Reading many controversial, religious and spiritual books , he has developed a personal and unique belief system that takes bits and pieces of different ideologies , mixing and remodeling them. Magic, demons and God co-exist in constant battle. "Dark One" explores Dan's life and enters the psychological time and space of addiction where reality is only a dream.
Producer’s Statement: Elaine Pain
When this film began 9 years ago I didn’t have grey hair and I had my own teeth.
Life has not been normal since. Darryl walks the dog and comes rushing back to get the camera because he saw maggots popping out of a dead gopher. Darryl films a dead crow because the light is just perfect. There are slugs on the bottom of the dog dish and I have to salt them while Darryl films them turning to white slim. Darryl films wasp and ant wars in our garden for hours, he pleads with me to make him stop. We both regret not getting the shot of the skunk with no head. Vacations are no better. Darryl films tent caterpillars and their webs for hours and I wander off in search of other exotic insects to film. We visit the hoodoos in Alberta and we each wander about filming. I leave before sunstroke gets me, Darryl does not. Darryl lies on a stony beach in B.C. happily filming creatures in a tidal pool. Whenever I travel I carry a camera to take pick up shots Darryl might like: graves, churches, nature, water etc. I have a shopping list in my head. We even make use of slides I shot 20 years ago in China and Japan. The need for images is overwhelming. I worry about Darryl’s health, he is a man driven. I do what I can. This project is critical for him to make and to his satisfaction as he purges his own demons. I visit family members 20km away, I think they might die of old age before the film is done. Darryl counts it as one of my many vacations. I realize Darryl is at the breaking point, I need to get him away from his edit suite, even if he believes he has no time. I make a picnic lunch for a day trip. We take the cameras. He happily climbs and films the stations of the cross at LeBret and religious imagery at the museum. He sleeps the deep sleep of exhaustion as I drive us home. I am happy I got him away from his film, well at least out of town.

Thanx again freesounders....
I've been looking for some bullroarer samples.
The bullroarer (for the curious) is a Native American (sorry, not sure what tribe(s) or areas) and apparently also a native Australian musical instrument/ communication instrument (there may be some differences between the two types of bullroarers) consisting of a small piece of wood with some sculpting and notches tied to a string or rope. The piece of wood is then whirled through the air at a rapid rate by the user to generate sound.
So far the only sample I've found is on "Crocodile Dundee 2," in which Paul Hogan uses one to call neighboring aborigines.
I'd be particularly interested in samples that represent the Native American instrument(s) in various states of excitation (winding up, in motion, winding down) and maybe some discussion of usual use/performance contexts.
My particular application would be for use in a small group composition I am recording on behalf of (another, retired) composer as part of a "demo" of his compositions, possibly to play for performance ensembles that may approached about performing the composer's work.
Thank you for your consideration.
Well, I'm very new to all this (first post) in the forum, but I just came across this and, pardon the pun, you blew me away. The poem, the reading, the performance are magnificent. I have become very interested in poetry over the last year, and I'm so pleased to come across this. A superb effort which I hope to download if that's possible. This will be bliss in my car.
Thank you for your artistic rendering, truly wonderful, and very clear diction too.
Thanks, and thanks to Freesound for this amazing facility.
Heh. Actually, I think freesound is in need of more R-rated material...
downloaded fine for me!
Couldn't wait for your input so I took and created a pack of 10 samples, each 7 seconds long as of how I imagine that you want them to sound.
Patient khavar. Some here have a work to do, but I'll see what I can come up with.

Pliz Help Me I'l Need It Fast
cognito: That sample is a LOT more graphic than I had originally thought! The first time I listened to it it must have cut out at the 15 second mark, all I heard was whispers and squeaking. [/quote}
Sorry... For my next failed relationship I shall go for a more PG theme, say maybe a sample along the lines of, "Long romantic conversation on a park bench.wav," or perhaps "Meeting the parents for the first time.flac." No matter what happens, though, you can count on me always to have a recorder handy. (And to be polite enough to ask if it's okay if I post these special moments on the Internet.)
i am looking for a song of bird, it is a sort of pigeon on Réunion island
in french " Tourterelle pays "
I think he meant lossy instead of compressed.
On a side note, John Gruber wrote a rather interesting article on Daring Fireball today about the AAC format. In a response to reader comments, he published another article commenting on Ogg Voribs and FLAC, and why he thinks Apple doesn't use them.
He posits that these formats are liable to be sued for patent infringement, even if they don't infringe on patents. I fail to see how Apple can get around this by making their own proprietary lossless codec, but it brings up an interesting issue nonetheless.
