    Hmmm, I see what you need.
    I googled it and found this page: http://www.therecordist.com/pages/downloads.html
    If you scroll down to the bottom there are some 'Doors and Structures' sounds, a few of them seem to be metallic but none seem to match the high pitch you want sad. Anyway take a look and see, you never know, they might be useful.
    Hope this helps.

    Check! I never seem to be able to hear what anyone is trying to say to me in clubs and loud parties...it's really frustrating as they can hear me o.k......perhaps a warning about tinnitus is useful here.
    Sounds like you had a good party Bram! I'm going to one later today...should be fun,not so loud so I can hear!

    Thank you dobroide. I had Sound Professionals in mind too when it came to shopping, and after your link I definitely know I will shop there. Thanks! grin

    Note, these use the Panasonic WM61-A capsules, and it is easy to make your own...

    various sites showing people building stereo/binaural mics from a set of Panasonic WM-61A capsules. I decided to have a go myself.

    Step 1. Buy some WM-61A capsules on eBay ($15 for 10 seems OK).

    Step 2. Note how small the contacts are and realize life will be much easier if you buy some cheap headphones and steal the cable. That way you end up with a nice fully formed right-angle plug but more importantly perfectly tinned/shielded wires ready to use (no cutting, wire stripping or fiddling - the key to a stress free build). $10 for some Sony cheapies, selected due to the low price and right-angled plug.

    Step 3. De-solder the headphones (BTW: I dunked the unsoldered ends of the cable in a cup of boiling water to help straighten out the kinks from the knots) slip your shrink-wrap up the cable and and re-solder on the capsules. I didn't even need to apply any more solder, just hold the two together, briefly touch with the tip of the iron and zap! done. The shield-wire goes to the tabbed capsule connector..this is too easy, surely something is wrong ;D

    Step 4. Test they are working.

    Step 5. Shrink-wrap the capsules.

    Step 6. Compare to Sound Professional binaurals misc...(normal sensitivity models)...they sound identical...job done.

    http://www.digifishmusic.com/public/images/16-binaurals.jpg

    Took 15 minutes, total cost ~USD $20

    NOTES:

    1. To hear the mics made in this tutorial search for wm61-a

    2. Next step, use another two capsules to make a stereo hydrophone...grin

    Interesting topic! I wonder if they get to the sound by rejecting all the others or listen directly for the sound they are seeking?
    I once found myself in a tense situation in a busy market-place.....suddenly all external noise went totally silent while every tiny sound relating to the tense situation became 100% loud and clear.Although I didn't make this change in hearing happen,logic would suggest that it must be possible.
    One of the things I enjoy about going out and recording is that I'm actually trying to do this all the time...a deer passing in a wood full of birdsong for example.Maybe with practice we can get better at it !

    Actually there are various pieces of soft and hardware to emulate this properly.

    There's all the "harmonizer" technology from digitech ( for example http://www.digitech.com/products/Vocalistlivepro/index.php ) or t.c. electronic ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRB98dibQ6c )

    There's melodyne celodyne that could be used as well ( http://www.celemony.com/cms/index.php?id=342&L=%2525253FL%2525253D )

    - bram

    yes, thanks a lot man. I knew there was some hard-soft ware to do the trick. I'll try it now on melodyne.

    thanks you all for the help!!!

    I'm on a hunt for a similar sound to the soundeffect heard in Akon's track Locked up. You know the sound when somethings slams shut with a distinct noise building up to it?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G46iSd0-Nw4

    You can hear it 0:31 - 0:32 quite clear. Anyone who can recreate it?

    Audacity is not my fav either, although I do use it often. But it either lacks a lot of features or I simply cannot find them. For example, it always wants to record mono, I make a stereo track and hit record, it makes an additional mono track and records on that. I have to switch between GarageBand and Audacity to simply record, edit, mix sounds.
    There needs to be more and better free audio editors.

    The easiest way to do this is Antares Avox unit or Antares Harmonizer Engine. Eventually Celemony Melodyne in Studio or 8 pre version. But manually you may copy several times this vocal to another tracks and then combine with pan and eq, remember to move them few miliseconds to front and back (each in different way) to avoid phasing effects. The best way is to record girl several times of course smile
