First time posting here.
I would like a bit of help, which should only take a few minutes for anyone to do.
I need various small sfx. Anyone with a microphone can do these.
Imagine you are in a concert hall (classical music, where everything is quiet usually
). Apart from the music you also get various random sounds here and there. I'm looking for such sounds. A coughing, a snese, some dragging of the feet, a chair squeeking, etc... I hope you know what I mean.
********** Instructions ***********
* You don't need to do any editing. Just make sure the volume is not distorted (too loud, so it "reaches red").
* If you want just click on record and try coughing a few times away from the microphone, closer to the microphone, with a tissue in front of your mouth, with your hand in front, etc.
Sneezing might actually be difficult now that I think about it, unless you can force yourself to sneeze... which I'm not sure is possible.
*No need for stoping and restarting etc. Just make a big nice file and send it over. I mean it shouldn't be more than 1 minute or something, but whatever you want.
* Of course I would prefer a "clean" sound, but I don't think it's really up to you, so don't bother. I can clean it up afterwards. As long as it doesn't distort.
* I would prefer formats of WAV or AIF, but since they are large (1 minute = 10 MB) either compress them in a zip/rar folder, or make them into ogg or mp3 but high quality please. Remember any distortion, either from the gain (too loud sound), or from lousy compression will render the sound almost unusable... hissing is curable, distortion, not.
Sounds to try:
iii. low wisper
iv. dragging of feet
v. dragging of chair
vi. if you have any door that squeeks and you can record it, by all means.
vii. anything else that comes in mind. Even random sounds (by accident), might come in handy
I really don't want anyone bothering more than a few minutes. It's not anything important individually, but all together could make a big help for me (and possibly others). After I'm done with editing, cleaning, etc, I'll post the results in a nice RAR folder for anyone to use. This is, at this time for my PhD, so no money involved, but of course I (and everyone else in the community) will be able to use them whenever they want really...
