Ok, since none of you were even close to guessing how I made those sounds, I'll
describe the sound fx and how i made them.
Throwing a wrench at a wall. Slowing the clank of it down about four times,
fading in other clanks produced in the same way. The doppler effect produced
in this sound is not totally artificial--it's made partially as the wrench
bounces off the wall and goes flying through the air. The drum is the wrench
hitting the wall, cut and pasted to sound a bit like a heartbeat
The second sound, sci-fi 2, is purely synthetic, produced by the expression
evaluator in Goldwave, with a bit of echo and speeding up added to the
Sci-fi 3 is another expression evaluated synth, with pitch change occuring
during the middle to simulate one of the strange sounds in Pink Floyd's Dark
Side of the Moon.
Sci-fi Dentist drill is a modified version of Strange Siren, another expression
evaluator script, which has its basis in the ceiling fan of the Heli game.
Reverb, octave shifting and time stretch change it--but as to how real it
sounds I still have no idea of exactly what I did, but it is purely synthetic
and based off that sound.
Star is that faded in clank of the wrench that's featured in sci-fi1.
