I guess this is a combined post, both asking how a certain sound effect is made, what it's called and if there are any such sound effects on this site.
What is the metallic sweeping sound that fades in, slightly panned to the left, which you can hear from http://youtu.be/rbtGYCaDcJU?t=11s. Is it some stretched out celesta?
I wish there was a super easy sure thing answer to your question
In my opinion, that sound could be created in several ways. It could have been realized by using a variety of synthesis approaches (i.e. additive, FM, etc). Perhaps it was from a sample library and the composer manipulated the sound in a plugin - it's possible it could have been a bell-like/chime patch to begin with prior to processing and/or stretching.
And yes, you could very well be correct: the sound could be some sort of orchestral instrument that was heavily tweaked. I really think the sound was a great choice for the cue.
Hope this helps!
If you mean the part at around 30 secs then it could be something like a reversed cymbal....
Oh, I was talking about the metallic sound from about :13 - :20 in that clip. Sorry if I misunderstood you Jackie. Which part of the clip were you focusing on?
You had the part of the clip right, soundsfromsound, at 13-20 seconds, it changes pitch down once with a new attack-sustain-decay envelope at around 16 seconds in. It's a bit similar to this: http://www.freesound.org/people/matiasromero/sounds/65488/ only lower pitch and with a tinkle emphasis on higher chiming frequencies. I think I'm gonna try to reproduce the sound in Sonar using a combination of that sound, celesta and another reversed cymbal
Sounds like a plan! You may also try possibly layering in a nice waterphone sample, if you happen to have one. They often provide a fantastic array of possibilities when it comes to source material for your sound palette. I love manipulating them along with some chimes or bells, drenched in reverb or what have you.
Good luck, and let us know how it turns out!
