    I am working on a documentary that features some factory robots - as such I want to put together a track that sounds a little like the short circuit 1 intro sequence. All built from layers of robotic/electronics. I want to avoid sympathizers as much as possible in that.

    I need some helping putting together some robotic sounds, bleeps that sound just as good that was used in the Short Circuit 1 intro sequence.

    I want to be able to obtain some assets - mash them together - send it off to some composers as an example - have them experiment.

    AlienXXX of course you're right, but I'm lazy. They're uploaded now.
    whiteCombined.wav (forgot to change the file name).

    Update: We managed to get 2 recordings. Sorry it took so long but it has been raining here. I will PM you with the sounds soon.

    The higher frequencies sound reasonably good, but the lower ones are still too tonal; I can hear hints of a F# and A#
    ...either they're really there, or I'm in trouble grin

    I still think it would be useful to upload those sounds and put links here in the post.
    Discussions like this can be useful to people interested in sound synthesis and research - remember Freesound is used by a lot of teachers and students. And not everyone has access to Audiopaint or the ability to install (school and institution computers normally do not allow users to install programs or run un-authorized executable files)

    Even for those who do have access to the software, reading through the forum thread and having immediate access to the sound examples being described is a lot more interesting and convenient than having to go away and try to replicate what they reading about.

    Yes, letting the spacing and distribution of your actual oscillator frequencies have some randomness should get you much closer to white noise. Nice demo. But if you don't have some randomness in there, somehow, somewhere, then it ain't right.

    Using just audiopaint, I created one-second segments built with increasing counts of oscillators spread exponentially, and the artifacts of the mathematical relationships between the frequencies became more and more pronounced as the the number of oscillators increased. It sounded less and less like an out-of-tune organ rather quickly, but I went up to 9999 oscillators, and it still sounded crappy. I was using 40Hz-18KHz as the spread. And then, finally, I realized that the exponential spacing would be approximating pink noise, not white noise, and so I changed to linear spacing on the 9999 -sized image to get it more "white". Indeed, it was a bit like white, but with horrible artifacts, sounding almost like some weapon out of Star Trek (TOS). I'm not sure it's worth putting something like that up on freesound since it really has no value, but it's an easy experiment to do if you want. On my 32-bit OS, however, audio-paint would crash (out of memory) if reading a 20x2200 pixel image, so I had to go the other way (2200x20) and then rotate it 90 degrees once it was in memory (and that worked). I only went up to 9999x20. (the 20 was arbitrary).

    Hello guys,
    I am working on a technological documentary - and it features some robotics. I am keen to recreate something using actual mechanical/electronic sounds - at least formulate something to hand over to a composer to use as a guide/final score.

    Are you able to help me piece it together. In particular - keen to get the actual backing track sounds in place - the little beeps at the end - the right tone. I am finding an endless loop of closing tabs down on base beats, alarm clocks, phone dials etc...

    I'm looking for about 10 or more perfectly looped music tracks for an iOS game I'm building. I'm about 90% done with everything and am putting in the finishing touches.

    All I need to pull it all together are some killer beats and techno tracks for the main title screen, level select screen, about 5 or more different game background music, level end and game over.

    Only high quality perfectly looped mp3 please. Looking for one good person I can work with on this and other games I plan to develop.

    Whoever comes on board will received an agreed upon percentage of all income derived from the game itself. As it stands, my plan is to release the game for free and earn some money from Ads.

    Give me a holler of you're interested. Links to your existing work for review would be great.

    Thanks,
    Manny

    @AlienXXX - thanks for your comments on both sounds. On the temporal sound experiment http://www.freesound.org/people/Speedenza/sounds/241457/ I'll see if I can make something along the lines you suggest - I'm sure you're right about the frequency effect.

    In a way echoing Headphaze's post. Reading your post reminds me of how hugely honoured I am that anyone downloads my sounds, and it doesn't matter if you haven't used my particular uploads. Thank you for being a user, otherwise, what would be the point of uploading, in that sense you have given back. Not an attempt at self promotion by the way, I'm also a user.

    Are you wanting it with a German accent? Or is American English okay?
