    Hey thanks for the valuable information.

    And thanks for the quick reply.

    This is for nothing, I just want to make more unique and powerful explosion sounds than just pulling the sounds from librarys.

    Does anyone else have any techniques or ideas.

    well I'd guess an explosion is made of several parts

    the initial ignition or attack part - if you want aggressive then I guess you should start thinking physco-acoustically - a snarl of a dog - a snakes hiss as it strikes..

    the rumble - try random things slowed down- part of a train pass - a lion roar - of course the easiest way would be to put it into a sampler - I think reason is a terrific sound design tool - put any sound into sampler - slow it down add distortion...

    Get a keybpard with faders on it - whisk them in real time - the idea is to make dramatic changes - use pieces of those...

    Explosions can be big - so they will have an echo component - I was walking around berlin in my heels and it's amazing how clear the reverb can be just from shoes! -imagine the echo if a bomb was dropped - Have you ever seen a fireworks display?

    the final part would be debris... is this is how you control perspective?

    what is this for?

    Just wondering here...did EMU pay ARP, Moog, Yamaha or Sequential Circuits when they released their synth sample libraries? My guess is that if you own a musical instrument you own every note it makes.

    Quite not true.

    Buying the instrument gives you the right to use the sounds in a composition (and sell it), it does not give you the right to sell the samples again.

    Sometimes the easiest way to thinking about releasing something in freesound is thinking about: "could I legally sell this?". If the answer is yes, you can most likely release it under CC as well.

    Try selling Korg Triton preset samples on a sample CD and see what happens. wink

    I agree with bram on this one smile

    Well "d├ępaneurs" around my neighborhood ( Don't know how to call them, some kind of 7-11, convenience stores, maybe) often play classical music on the front of the store to shoo off gatherings of teenagers just hanging there or waiting for someone to buy them alcohol. This is not taking in the fact that SOME teenagers (me) do like classical tongue, but it's a better solution than playing a loud and very unpleasant sound that leaves your ears numb.

    Hey, would anyone know of a good sounding harp keyboard on this site? I think I could find great use out of it. Thanks.

    Hello everyone, I'd like to start a discussion on explosion sounds.

    They fasinate me because some are very unique. And I have a question, what goes into making a good explosion sound?

    I know you start with the basic boring pop sound. Then what would you add next to sweeten the sound?

    Does anybody know any good techniques on creating unique explosion sounds?

    Or any good effects to add to the sound (obliviously low end, EQ) but what else?

    Or has anyone read anything on making good explosion sounds.

    Links would be helpful to read. And i just want to clarify I want to know how to make explosion sounds, not find them. A speedy response will be helpful.

    Thanks

    So - let's do some provocation here - how would you solve this issue in a different way?

    (see, I like to play the devil's advocate! grin )

    The way I see it, agreeing on how we do NOT want to solve problems of coexistence is as important as getting effective solutions... a consensus should be achieved in that attacks to age groups taking advantage of their vulnerability (ability, in this case) is not fair play. Otherwise, the door is open to every type of selective discrimination in the future. For example, I can imagine a scenario in wich old people are kept away from, say, stores aimed at youngsters... by setting up barriers to persons with low mobility or otherwise handicaped !! Crazy, isn't ?? But possible.

    So even though I tend to sympathize with past -prime guys (yeah, really hate these teenage cars with loud subwoofers), bugging youngsters with the Mosquito is not a solution and opens a dangerous way to confrontation.

    What to do, then? Well, maybe nothing... Or the mosquito sound at stores could be replaced with any of the great samples at Freesound (crickets?) smile Yes, perhaps this is useless as regards annoying teenagers, but at least the store would provide a nice ambience which can be appreciated by all customers smile

    Okay - have checked out with a hearing specialist here in London and she is categorical that these Mosquito Device frequencies will cause no harm to hearing. (It's low frequencies that harm hearing as discussed in the forum.)

    It doesn't make it any less an insipid thing. But it does mean it's not making kids deaf. Thank goodness.

    Now - I really want to try and bring attention to how easy it's been for people to use sound as a weapon in a public space. I'm talking to a few people here in London and it would be really great to know where else they are.

    Thanks for all the posts so far.

    I understand that ERH and I don't consider myself an advocate of those devices but I tried to point out that the 'public' dimension of the public space is relative. The places I talked about where not considered public for the majority of people passing - even though it concerns metro stations and town squares. They were public to a limited group of people, i.e. the young people we talked about. Now the balance has shifted in favour of those people who were afraid to visit those places. This means limiting the access for young people.

    The main question is indeed whether the means suit the end. It is draconian. It may very well lead to a downward spiral, an arms race and that would make things much worse. But this is how most people like it! The immediate (short-term) effect is that these places become 'public' again. There was a report on Dutch television yesterday about the application of the mosquito in Utrecht (Kanaaleiland) and respondents were very satisfied. Of course, no one asked the teenagers. Policy makers like this: easy to realise, instant success! The alternative is muddling through without clear and favourable results - even though 'favourable' is relative...

    So - let's do some provocation here - how would you solve this issue in a different way?
