[WANTED] Ambient sounds
« on: May 16, 2009, 01:14:03 pm »
Hi,

again we are searching for sound files -especially fire sounds like this one http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=44322

we need them for the maps where fire particles are burning without a single noise. and we have differnt kind of fires. big ones (like e.g. the crashed ufos) and small ones like camping fires.

Do you still need fire sounds? And what other "ambient" sounds are you talking about?

yes, we are still searching for fire sounds, engine sounds, water sounds and whatever can add more atmosphere to our maps

Heres an ambient sound or two I just made for you guys:

http://omploader.org/vMnlzMw/hum.ogg

http://omploader.org/vMnl4Zg/hum2.ogg

Do what ya like with 'em. I'm going to see if I can make some more. I'd say they sound quite alien spaceshippy. Ideally I want to create something properly mechanical sounding at some point.

Oh for anyone who wants to know I made it using the Triple Oscillator in Linux Multimedia Studio :)

EDIT: Just edited hum2 a little. Realised it had about a second of silence at the end meaning it didnt loop quite right.

GPL2 is fine. Its the only thing thats truly compatible with an open source project like this.

Hey developers !

Do you still need additional ambient sounds ?

I'm thinking of things like a howling dog in the background or the clittering of crickets !

If the answer is yes, I could contribute...

the answer is definitely yes - the more the better - they can add a lot of atmosphere to a map

I like these two a lot! If you can, you should upload the lmms files - we'd have the source available that way ^^

There are a few Ambient sounds on OpenGameArt.

Here's a Mining Pump I made - it's a bit short (8 bars or so) but I could make it longer if needs be..

Sounds great, I vote 4 using this sound in-game !!!
But why is the sound 4 minutes long, when most of it is silence ? Did you do this on purpose ?

No - I think it's probably a minimum length required by the ogg converter that I use - maybe I will expand it slightly and re-upload it.

Edit:

A longer sample - (32 bars): http://wiki.creativecommons.org/File:MinePump02.ogg

Oh - and I discovered that I had the End pointer set incorrectly - so thats the reason for the silence in the first one (doh!)

Nice !
How did you make it ?
Maybe you could edit it just a little bit, so it will loop better, now you kind of hear when the loop begins if ya know what I mean ?!
& make it even longer to avoid being to repetitive in-game...

Then I think this would be perfect for the machines in the U.F.O.s.

I will write a patch tracker item on sourceforge regarding this.

Thanks MCR -  :)

Made by mixing 2 tweaked voices on the Malstrom Synth - basic heli-motor and an ambient voice setting - exported to .wav and converted to .ogg.

This one is 64 bars in length (around 2.5mins or so..)

http://wiki.creativecommons.org/File:MinePump03.ogg

I had in looping in Reason quite seamlessly - so I think it should be OK..  ;)
