    You might be setting yourself up for a snappy punch line with that question, but seriously folks... most stuff would be copyright shady from the publishers side if reading from a copyrighted book. However there are tons of less copyrighted "books on tape" out there in mp3 format mostly. I put links to 2 articles on finding that kind of stuff if you can't find it hear. Users here might be less reluctent to read a script that you need, that you wrote... or have them rattle something off in the vain of a book in that genre. Be careful, if you read dianetics outload I heard tom cruise comes to your house and stands on your couch.

    Here is the actual weapon of mass destruction. It can't be heard while in preview mode (the lo-fi version that is played probably had this "unhearable" frequency chopped off) , you'll have to download it. If you or someone around you might hear it, TURN THE VOLUME DOWN. It hurts. Really.

    This today from an articulate young man I know in Scotland:

    Dear Karl James

    I certainly agree with you. It is destroying our human rights. I am a near teenager at 12 years old and I am not a dumb yob with no self respect. They are not respecting our rights and it is aganst many acts in the universal decloration of human rights. It is realy anyoing noise and some of or older users say that it is anoying as well. I think that it is just like some modern wepons used in ww2. The people who install it are ignorant little tyrants and I bet soon someone will take this to court.
    Thank you for your debate subject and I shall bring this up with my peers

    Public place are supposed to be healthy and wholesome for all age groups, or they aren't public places. That this is even being allowed is insane. It's targeting children's ears, which are still fragile and growing. So they're meant to stop people from hanging around or visiting? what about kids that are with their parents, and have to deal with the children's complaints of ear aches? Kids that are being made deaf to certain sounds? It just... *sigh* I can't believe this is serious. :x

    I am a KDE User. For this purpose i just create a desktop icon, link it to the application lame or oggenc or whatever and after droping any *.wav file to it, it creates the corresponding *.mp3 file on my desktop wink

    .. works also with graphics conversion applications like size reduction etc.

    For Batch converting you can try to the demo version of FlexiMusic Wave Editor, which makes the process of converting so many formats a breeze by automating all the tasks and giving you the best quality..

    I really dont know how to describe this this sound but you hear some rapper say it in their songs or just use it as a background sound. Anyways if anyone has a sample of this just let me know. thanks!

    I love the idea of hurting back the hurters... would be very happy to try out anything this weekend. But I don't have time to create the file. So let me know if you get anywhere!

    bah they modulate the tone itself, that's perfect. if you play a 16khz sound right next to it - or even in the neighbourhood- it should sound pretty damned funkie. Give it a shot: mix that file by thedialogueproject with a straight 16khz tone and see what happens.

    of course I could be wrong.

    if that fails mix it with a 16khz + something tone (dobroide could you figure out the actual frequency of the higher pitched part?)

    - bram


    Bram,
    I did what you say (assigned separate channels to the original tone and the one generated by me) then played together and... it sounds like crap smile As for the high part actually it's 16500 Hz, click the thumbnail belo for a detail

    Hi,
    Rode NT4, AT822, and Soundman OKM binaurals are popular choices. Search the forum around, there are several threads about the subject

    play another signal with a frequency very close to it: by SLIGHTLY modulating the frequency of the second signal you can modulate the first and make it thus hearable for EVERYONE.

    that's actually a very good experiment. can someone please go figure out what frequency this thing is at?

    - bram

    according to thedialogueproject, 4 kHz and 16kHz. For spectral images see my comments here:

    and here:

    About fighting the thing... I'd wish to know if the shop warns visitors about the sound they are being exposed to. And it might be interesting to ask a lawyer about the legality of the technique. Taking actions againts the shop would be a nice way to fight this,..

    i wonder what would be the best way for the individual to combat this type of thing?.... ear plugs? ....cut the wires? ...somehow aim another frequency at it and cancel it out? anybody?
