    How often is it that one finds the perfect sound of bone cracking?

    Awesome stuff!

    Thank you Halleck.

    Were they green? If so, they're probably tropical parrots. There's a huge flock that comes by my area every year now, by the hundreds, and they are LOUD... and yes, very annoying. :) The whole flock actually parked right outside my bedroom in the trees this fall and I beat myself up that I didn't have any batteries in my microphone!

    Thanks. Very close to what I was looking for, can't really explain, but it's still very good.

    Haha, thanks. I guess I'll add the "creepy" tag. :)
    BTW, This is a little piece of rejected sound design I did for Project Aqua back in the day.

    The "clicking" happens when a new arc is sparked at the base of the ladder during the dispersion of the previous arc. This is part of how the device works (see the flickr photos for a better idea.)
    We did find a way to keep an arc "alive" by blowing it down towards the base, but this produces a different noise. You can hear this effect in this sample:

    The effect you want can probably only be achieved through postproduction, or recording a different device...

    If you could use a Jacob's Ladder continuously, without all the "clicking", you might make it sound like an electrical surge or something. That would be cool.

    Thanks. This is basically an unedited excerpt, I figured that I should leave cleanup to the professionals. I did post some shorter samples (JacobsLadderSingle) that are more suitable for use as drop-in sound effects.

    You need to lose your voice at the end, but other than that, nice sound!

    That's very true. However, my katana is a modern ornamental piece with a metal sheath, so this is the sound it makes when it's drawn.

    However, a good friend of mine owns a more authentic daishō that he got in Japan, complete with wooden saya. I could try to record the katana and wakizashi from that, but as you said it doesn't really make much sound at all. :)

    Sorry, but you wouldn't get that sound at all from a katana being drawn from the saya. A saya is made of wood, so there would be no metallic scraping noises at all. In reality both the draw and resheathing of the sword are near silent. Find a dojo where they practice Iaido and you'll hear what i mean. The only sound produced by the sword during kata comes from cutting.

    Great sample, nicely percussive. Out of curiosity, could you describe the apparatus?

    Thanks! This was from a play that I videographed, and it occurred to me that people might have a use for it. Glad I was right. :)
