    ^^ Agreed. Sounds like a double or triple voice sawtooth played at a high octave. It can be crafted fairly easily by changing the amplitude envelope on your synthesizer. It should look like this: Attack=0 Decay=25-50 Sustain=0-25 Release=25-50. (Assuming that 0 is the minimum allowed and 100 is the maximum allowed)

    It also might have a light reverb effect on it but that could just be the release time.

    Thanks qubodup, for cleaning up my links, and for the info about ftp. I had figured there was probably a vanilla ftp server I could just use a regular ftp program with, but didn't find the info about it, only the ftp applet -- maybe I just didn't look hard enough. I'll try to upload my sounds to freesound tonight.

    Almost nobody has a game pad, it seems. I have a feeling the keyboard controls will kind of suck, and not give you a very solid impression of how fast you're moving, or turning, like the game pad does. Also, someday, I would like to make the rumble function of the game pad work, but for right now, it seems nobody knows how to do this with linux, except with a very few types of controllers.

    Well, I suppose this is not the sort of game that a person would play for hours and hours most likely, more of a novelty type thing, so....ok, you have convinced me, I'll give it a shot with the keyboard thing. I am pretty sure it's not hard to do, so probably tonight or tomorrow I'll have a commit to cvs for that.

    Thanks for offering to record something. I look forward to chomping you to bits. Probably take me a bit longer to incorporate your parts than to do the keyboard thing, as I have to generalize some of the code first (next person to provide sounds after you should be a lot easier to put in though.) Plus I will have to edit the sounds, add reverb, etc, (which I do partially offline on a yamaha AW4416, so it's not the most convenient thing.)

    Your links in a clickable form: breath2, fast_breath.ogg, fast_breath1.ogg, fast_breath2.ogg, huuuuuh.ogg, hello.ogg, oh_shit_oh_shit.ogg, mild_surprise_breath.ogg, fall_with_impact.ogg, wumpus_dines.ogg
    Voice acting in Portal, don't ask me why I post this.

    The FTP applet is pretty crappy, so instead use any FTP-client to connect to ftp://freesound.iua.upf.edu/ using your username and password. If you have the command-line tool "ftp" installed, use "send" to upload files.

    A session looks like this (I cut the system messages out) for me:

    $ ftp freesound.iua.upf.edu
    Name (freesound.iua.upf.edu:qubodup): qubodup
    Password:
    ftp> send test.ogg
    ftp> exit.

    I stumbled upon your game sometimes (browsing sf.net, maybe it was mentioned on http://freegamer.blogspot.com or http://forum.freegamedev.net/ ) But I have no gamepad, so I supposed I wouldn't be able to play it. Is it not possible to make the game playable with keyboard only?

    I will records something for ya.

    Just sounds like a synth note, probably analogue, but put through an arpeggiator (cant spell it) smile

    I'm searching for a particular sound, but I don't know what it's called. I hear it primarily in synthpop songs as the main "instrument."

    I can't search for it, I don't know what it's called.

    These are some examples of what I mean;

    www.colony5.com/files/listen/Syncronized_Hearts.mp3
    www.colony5.com/files/listen/Psyco%20Blonde.mp3
    www.myspace.com/razedinblack - particularly Share this Poison

    Note: These are .mp3, .mp3, and a link to myspace, all of which are provided by the band.

    So I made this video, er, I mean, audio game, called "Be the Wumpus" ( http://bethewumpus.sourceforge.net ). In this game, you are a wumpus, a blind cave dwelling creature who locates prey by sound, then eats them.

    The prey is human wumpus hunters, and makes various noises.

    Mostly, the prey breathes, but some times says something.

    Currently, the game has only some sounds which I recorded myself. Consequently, when playing, the wumpus has a rather monotonous diet of chomping on the same guy, over and over again.

    So, I'd like a few more different people in the game, but not being much of a voice actor, I can't really do it myself, so I thought I'd ask here, in case anybody's into it.

    Here's what I need from anybody that wants to be a meal in the game. I need all of the following sounds (which should be recorded while imagining yourself to be in a dark cave with a hungry wumpus nearby, and each person who wants to be in the game must record all these sounds -- surprisingly, just the sound of your breathing is distinct and almost recognizable from person to person.)

    1) Normal, calm breathing (as calm as you can be with a hungry wumpus nearby).
    2) three instances of some faster, less calm breathing -- or just some amount of it
    which I can slice up into three instances of breath-in plus breath-out.
    3) A sharp intake of breath, as if surprised by a hairy wumpus touching you in the darkness.
    4) Some sort of speech one might say in such a situation (e.g. "hello? Is someone there?"wink
    5) Some sort of speech when one is sure there's something scary there in the darkness, but not sure where it is (e.g. I said, "oh shit.... oh shit...." very quietly.);
    6) Some breathing in a "mildly surprised" way, not quite the sharp intake of number 3.
    7) A scream, used during your fall into the wumpus cave. I made mine by screaming while running across the room towards the microphone.
    8 ) an "augh" sound, for when you get eaten.

    For 4 and 5, you can say whatever you would naturally say in such a situation.

    Do not add reverb, record dry, I want to add the same reverb I've already used on all the sounds to maintain a consistent sound for the wumpus cave. Also (and I'm sure nearly all of you already know this) when recording breathing, don't breath onto the microphone, breath beside it, otherwise you'll get a lot of loud low frequency stuff we don't want.

    Here are examples of 1 through 5 above, which I have made so you get the idea of what I'm looking for. (I would have uploaded these to freesound, but the ftp applet doesn't seem to work for me... just a blank square appears, and so far I haven't figured out a way around that.) These all have reverb, but the samples I'd like from you should be dry.

    7)
    http://bethewumpus.cvs.sourceforge.net/*checkout*/bethewumpus/bethewumpus/sounds/fall_with_impact.ogg
    (this one has an "augh" sound mixed in, along with impact sound... I just need the screem from you.)

    8 )
    http://bethewumpus.cvs.sourceforge.net/*checkout*/bethewumpus/bethewumpus/sounds/wumpus_dines.ogg
    (this one has growling and chomping mixed in with the "augh" sound, I just need the "augh" sound from you.)

    If you have other ideas for what sorts of sounds people might make when in a dark cave with a hungry wumpus, I will consider them, but the ones above are the ones that I'm pretty much ready to use.

    Thanks in advance, (if anybody is into this challenge -- I suppose it is asking a lot. Fun though.)

    I managed to wash the youtube track out with audacity and isolate the sound pretty well - sample rate isnt too high though, so a higher bitrate will be appreciated. I'll give it a shot this weekend, thanks for the link!

    Hey there,

    I don't want to wait one year before being able to upload files to freesound using the public domain.

    My solution is for now: add "public domain" or "public-domain" (which are both the same) to the tag list, as the author (bold tags) - this is what I do to my submissions.

    I wish it was possible to implement a dirty hack to allow making the public domain license an alternative but what the heck.

    I encourage you all to tag YOUR OWN files as public domain content.

    If you don't see the need for releasing sounds to the public domain, please tell.

    I just got out of a meeting with the director and she decided that Denzil9 will be the recording chosen! I really appreciate all of your help!

    As for the questions, I wasn't specific about the type of accent for several reasons, first off because I'm honestly clueless about how many accents there are. Second, I didn't want to reduce my chances of getting a response by saying something like "I need a Welsh accent." Staying vague seemed to be the best option.

    I figured the director would have an idea of the type of accent she was looking for, so by giving her a wide variety of options I could leave the final say to her.

    Thank you all so very much!
    Jake

    The full article was several pages long and about DUB music - this was the full ref for freesound but I was very pleased to see it so prominently displayed.

    Out of interest, what exactly do you mean by a British accent? There are lots of different accents in Britain: English, Scottish, Welsh, Northern Irish. And within each of those countries there a many, many regional variations.

    ah, that would explain.

    I thought you were unable to DOWNLOAD from freesound....

    Nothing we can do about this... The only thing would be to give access to the mp3 preview direct URL. I guess we could do this with some javascript.

    "We are NEVER going to support Rewire. There are two simple reasons:

    (a) Propellerheads will not allow us to implement Rewire in an open source application.
    (b) JACK allows almost everything that Rewire does."
