    Vienna subway station announcement chime


    3 Weeks in Europe and this sound is one memory that just sticks to it all. If anyone knows how to get or recreate a copy of the 2-tone heavy bll sound from the station arrival announcement (the video below has it)

    youtube.com/watch?v=xOAgvPjNpi8

    It is obviously synthesized, but I can't manage to effectively recreate it from existing samples. I dont have lots of tools either, any help is appreciated.

    Hey there -- I once found a sample with a relatively good capture:
    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=11131
    I haven't downloaded it, but it seems to be of good quality - Note that it probably wont be possible to capture the chime without the background noise of the engine as these announcements are played automatically (I think).

    Is that one sufficient?

    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!
