Hey guys what's up. It be cool if someone could possible do a recording of where they are walking towards a bar, open the door, and then walk into a bar filled with people.
The point of this is to capture the sonic quality of opening a door to a bar and then being flooded by the sounds of the people inside. I would prefer it if the bar wasn't really busy because I'm looking for more of a moderately filled bar. But I'm not that picky about it to tell you the truth.
If you have any more questions then feel free to ask.
UPDATE: Nevermind, I got what I need.
Exactly what I needed. Thanks!!
I don't know if this may have happened to any of you, but I wanted to share my thoughts. Just the other day I was watching that movie 'Rivers and tides', about the works of the great Scottish artist Andy Goldsworthy ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Goldsworthy ) and I immediately thought: Damn, I wish some one of my recordings had been used in this production, at least one! I loved the images and sounds/music of the movie so much, felt so empathic with what I was seeing and listening...
I mean, we (I for one) often record sounds without any knowledge of the context in which they are going to be used, have no control whatsoever on the background with which the sound is going to interact eventually. Of course this is ok, and it's a very logic way of working for a field recordist, working 'blind'. But sometimes you find THE perfect context, one which matches perfectly with your way of thinking and feeling. That's what I found in Rivers and tides and in Andy's amazing creations done with stones, water, leaves... Did this happen to you before, finding a production you would die to participate in?
Ps, Of course I can only recommend the movie, if you haven't seen there are some snippets in Youtube ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TWBSMc47bw )
Looking for recordings of angry voices, either individuals or pairs, for a research project. Please let me know if you can any samples or know where some may be located. Thanks!
ROFL! I was thinking about that the other day. It's basically a very slowed down metal hit. What's making that clanging noise, I don't know, but I have reason to believe it's a tambourine. So basically, just slow down a tambourine sample and you have a pretty darn close sample of "The Eric Serra Metal Hit"...LOL.
Also, Eric Serra seem to use a lot of slowed down samples for his music. For example, speed up the very first song from the Fifth Element (the ambient scary song that plays during the opening credits) and you'll hear this overused door sound effect!
Another example of speeding up/slowing down samples in Eric Serra's music is the breakbeat song that plays in Fifth Element when Bruce Willis wakes up in the beginning of the movie. One of the vocal samples is actually a sped up cat meow.
This has to be one of the biggest unanswered questions of all time...
What ARE those damn samples Eric Serra uses in pretty much all of his compositions? Especially that "hollow" metallic hit you can hear in almost every single piece of music he's ever created...
Just listen to the score of Goldeneye, The Fifth Element, Leon (to name a few), and you'll know exactly what I mean.
It's been driving me insane since 1995!
lol. I didn't say they used ONLY sound from the outdoors... but they did mike the synth coming out of an amp in an open field.
Link to a clip that has it. If it's commonly used in feature films, it's most likely an orchestral instrument. If you searched through some orchestral percussion, I bet you'd find it.
Hi to all members forum,
Can you help me found or editing with Roland FANTOM X7 DURAN DURAN PLANET EARTH ARPEGGIO
Lot of thanks Simone
if you are on windows:
these are free and open source.
I guess I got a bit over-zealous...i downloaded kristal and it won't play sounds...can't seem to figure out how to fix it...my guess is it's because i'm on vista 64-bit, so if anyone knows any other DAWs or knows how to fix that i'd be really happy to get some feed back
Woot! thanks a lot bro i can't even tell you how much i appreciate the help here
I wonder how many bees they had to piss off to get them to make that synthy bass sound?
Digifish posted this a while back: http://www.wingfieldaudio.com/portable-recorder-sound-samples.html
FL Studio or Sony ADIC Pro would work well and both can be found online to purchase or "obtain without purchasing." Not that I would advocate getting programs illegally but if YOU really wanted to there are ways, lets be honest with the beginner.
basically i know that in jurassic park they mixed sounds a elephant, a alligator, and a giraffe (or some weird mix of animals) to make the sound the t-rex made
so i'm guessing i could do the same (with different sounds) to make sounds for techno. does anyone know any useful programs for melding sounds together like that? or just about advice or suggestions for programs to make my own sounds for my songs?
i would really appreciate some help, i don't like the idea of using fl studios pre-recorded sounds they have built in.
The most useful programs for "melding sounds together" (more commonly known as mixing) are DAWs, Digital Audio Workstations. You can get one for free here.
Hmm... not so sure about self-amplified... the thing with the speakers is I'm also looking for connections to my laptop which only has one audio output. Suggestions please! Thanks digifish once again!
Digifish's suggestions are good ones. You can easily connect your laptop to any of these speakers with a stereo 1/8" to stereo RCA cable. As far as self-amplified (also called 'active') you probably do want that kind, as otherwise you need to have an amplifier for each speaker. If you have a couple nice amps around this is definitely an option, but any amp that's not really good will colour your sound. Active is definitely easier, especially if you're tight on space as well as budget.
This Montreal band uses sounds of nature (river flowing, birds, fire, logs being hit with an axe, wood pieces being thrown, canoe as a bass drum hit by a bunch of plants tied together attached to a bass drum pedal, etc.) as integral parts of their really upbeat songs! Check them out:
THE NATIONAL PARCS
The National Parcs, veterans of Montreal's celebrated Freeworm, have gone into the wild and come back with a look and sound that's as big as the world.
The three young men were born in the backwoods of Quebec, Malawi and B.C., but bred on Montreal streets buzzing with the noise of every nation on earth. For this groundbreaking CD/DVD album, they strip back down to basics, returning to their roots in the bush. The great outdoors becomes their studio, and their songs come alive with all-natural samples of wood splitting, sand slipping, paddles slapping, water dripping. Their cameras and microphones are trained on the trackless woods around them, but their ears have been trained on Grime and Hip Hop, Afrobeat and Baile Funk, American Spirituals and Malian Blues. The resulting Timbervision tracks are an invitation for the world to dance, starting with the half-remembered hum of our own backyards and smuggling in the best that the world has to offer.
The band first joined forces for Freeworm's 2001 live shows, which pioneered their fascination with grafting exotic and broken beats onto the rhythms of maple forests and canoeing. This was the year the city first got out of its seats for the trio's infectious found-sound and found-image stage experience: their Club Soda performance at the Montreal Electronic Groove Festival won them the MIMI "Show of the Year" award. Two Freeworm albums later, they're making the partnership official as The National Parcs. The FrenchEnglish mash-up of the band's new name suggests the range of their influences, while the parkland theme is a nod to preserving what matters.
Wanted to have a crack at doing a remix of the theme from the first "Max Payne" videogame, but was wondering if you could help me identify some of the samples?
Here is a YouTube link to the theme...
The samples I'd like to identify, in particular, are the Eric Serra sounding "hollow metallic hit", the twangy guitar (if it even *is* a guitar) played in F, E, B (?), and what I *think* is some sort of a "gong drag", but am not sure...
Anyways, all help would be greatly appreciated!
