Any Audio FX Needed?

#1
Hey Folks,

As always I'm happy to contribute where I can, are there any need for audio FX? I've got an extensive library of audio along with experience in foly work so I can make all sorts of weird and wonderful sounds.
Any requests, pop them here and I'll be happy to sort them out Smile

That's a great offer!

I don't know if this fits your interest, but what comes to mind are the menu sounds. Currently, they are silent placeholders, or the old-old-school sounds from a decade ago. A modern sci-fi theme would be pretty awesome.

Note however that new menu sounds will likely be met with some resistance. See this thread, where unfa posted a few concepts. The challenge is to make them interesting without being perceived annoying.

These are the files in question, if you would like to give it a try:

Code:
SOUND                        PLAYED WHEN
data/sound/menu/open.wav     opening dialog
data/sound/menu/close.wav    closing dialog
data/sound/menu/focus.wav    moving focus to new item (should be very subtle)
data/sound/menu/execute.wav  pressing button, enter key, or double click
data/sound/menu/select.wav   using checkbox, radiobutton, or similar
data/sound/menu/slide.wav    using slider or colorpicker
data/sound/menu/clear.wav    clearing inputbox or keybind
data/sound/menu/winner.wav   winning single player campaign

They can be activated in Settings > Audio > Menu sounds

How about the chat sounds? They are a bit jarring, unlike say text message sounds on a cellphone.

data/sound/misc/talk.wav
data/sound/misc/talk2.wav

forgive me, folks. I can't find the original files in my xonotic download. If it helps I'm running Mac!

Could you link me to where these files are stored in the online project?

Thanks!

TheAudioMonkey, the original files are inside of one of the "pk3" files inside of "Xonotic/data", specifically the "xonotic-*-data.pk3" file.  pk3 files are just renamed zips.  None of this is really important though, because DarkPlace's virtual filesystem allows you to override these from your userdata directory, "~/Library/Application Support/xonotic/data".

By placing your files in that directory, the will override the ones in the pk3.  for example:  "~/Library/Application Support/xonotic/data/sound/misc/talk.wav".

You also asked for these sounds in the online project, here you go: https://gitlab.com/xonotic/xonotic-data....ster/sound

Good luck, have fun!

Hey,
Just got something in my mind. Well, the music I do is rather boring, because it's drony-like kind of music. I mean, textures and ambient. But! I might be suitable for Xonotic.
Would that be appropriate for background kind of music (the background sound from Xoylent, for instance)? I also got some cool tracks available.
And the other question would be: TheAudioMonkey, would you be ready to equalize/make them sounding better/master them (if I send them multitracked)?
Because if I know stuff about synthesis, I got no time nor the computer to do mastering. And I don't know much about this (planning to learn that later).
Tell me what you think about this.

For responding to your post, it would be helpful to actually get to know what kind of tracks you produce. Can you share a link?

That's true.
So here is a link. I would see this in space, I think.
Dunno if you'll like it. This is an old one, badly recorded (as I don't use any computer to make them, but only hardware gear). I also got some more of ambient/drone stuff. I ever you want to listen to it, tell me, that would motivate me to work on it.

Woah that's real good. Yeah I can definitely hear this working for space maps like Xoylent (however I personally have the music turned off when playing). I see what you're thinking.

For that particular song though, I think it would work really well on the loading screen. This is usually only up for a couple of seconds, but sometimes when downloading maps, it can be a lot longer. I feel like this music (specifically from the 1:00 mark and onwards) would be really nice to have as background music during the loading screen.

Note: I love ambient music and drone is great too, so I might be biased

Oh, cool you like it.
There is other stupid drone shit on my account too, if you like that.
In fact I just have to record it, but I'm so lazy I don't find time to do it, and I don't want to learn all the mastering stuff now.

Well, that would suit better, don't you think?

Hahhaha nah I honestly think yours is better. It's nice and subtle which is good because if you're someone like me, who's looking at loading screens a lot, the music wouldn't really get old/annoying.

Yeah I'd be happy to mix/master for you :Smile when you have some, email me lea@theaudiomonkey.co.uk as I may not pick it up on the forum.

Sorry for late response folks, had a hectic couple of weeks with work. I'll get on this over the next couple of days Smile

Hey dudes,
Just received a new synth yesterday. For those interested, that's an Elektron Digitakt.
Just need to find a way to record now, and I should be able to give you some crazy-ass tunes! I'd like to do something related to the original Nexuiz musics, like, drum'n'bass, jungle, with crazy rythms. Or mayber more ambient stuff. I'll see where this will get me.
Working on it right now, I hope I'll be able to send you snippets as soon as possible!

There are tons of free and open source synths that are not worse than proprietary ones.

I know Smile And sometimes even better ahah.
But I like hardware synths (that's currently my job btw). And anything I will make (when I will start doing my own stuff) will be open-source/open-hardware, for sure.

Anyway, I did try to use VSTs and DAWs, and it didn't work really well... Dunno why. So many possibilities, so at the end, you don't even know where to start.
I usually think that a given workflow (that you got from hardware) forces you to think differently, and brings you where you didn't expect. Because you adapt, you see things that else, you wouldn't see. And because there are limitations, it brings creativity: try to get the maximum out of it.

But that's a whole debate ahaha

I'd love a distinct noise for frags (instead of the hit noise going off repeatedly, which feels wrong to me). Ideally (imo) a dinging noise of some kind
