I'm looking for that woosh sound you hear when someone is punching, for example, in the matrix. I can't find these types of wind noises anywhere, and I'm going to need them for a super-fast sword fighting scene. For another example, listen to thw wooshing noise of the train in "The Neon Night".

Also, if anyone knows where I could find that zip noise of a bullet in the air, like in Saving Private Ryan, I'd greatly appreciate it.

and lastly, does anyone know where to get a good, rumbling, windy type of noise that you hear in the bullet-time scenes in the Matrix?

Yeah, these sounds are the most useful but, also strangely, the most elusive. I've been looking for them for a long time, to no avail sad Any help in finding them would be greatly appreciated! biggrin

P/s: Thanks for bringing the topic up, Sidewinder! cool

I dont know how good your micraphone is, but if you own a copy of the matrix (or renting it ) you can always record the sounds off there. I have a copy of it...If I could take some of those sounds would anyone be interested?

You can do that, but I doubt the quality will come out very well.

I just got done doing the sound when Neo first dodges the bullets. It is mainly the sound of the gun being fired and the bullets wizzing by. Turned out good. The second one I did is when Trinity says "dodge this" and fires her gun. It's a good sound of the gun going off almost in slow mo and the guy falling back. even a lilttle electricity when he turns back into a normal person. if your interested either e mail me or pm me. if anyone wants any other scenes go ahead and let me know.

On a side note, in the scene where Trinity puts the gun to the agent's head and says 'dodge this', if you look, she put it to the left side of his head, on the temple. But when she fires it and he flies backwards, she's shooting him in the forehead. me

Yeah I was thinking about 'stepping it up (a notch)' and 'taking it to the max' for a while, but I decided that I should stick with 'pushing it to the limit.' It suits my needs and desires best.

This from a guy who shouts "Search" on nearly every thread.

Sidewinder: As for the sounds, why not record them?

A couple different sized sticks, pipes, antennas, ect waved in front of a mic should give you all the "whoosh" you need.

If u have a minidisc, BINGO. Just hook it up to ur TV's headphone's input via the minidisc's headphone's input or line out using a stereo jack, and u should have an exact digital replica ripp, with no quality loss.

Okayz sidewinder, here are a few examples of what I got so far, I suggest you check out the one called 'bulletambience', cause I got another 10 files which are variants on that one! Sorta a Saving Private Ryan feel! I also uploaded a few single bullet whizzes which can be used seperately to get the effect you want. I'll try an get some whooshes up next. BTW, tell me if any of them suited your needs, and then if you like I can upload the rest of that particular bunch, or take them off to try and find something that suits your needs better! Cheers,

Platinum.

P.S. An addy would be good! http://www.geocities.com/mystman_riven

P.S.S. I kno it's only geocities but what do you expect? smile

OOhh...That's some nice stuff.

I like all the whizzes. The bullet ambience, unfortunately, is restricted to certain situations (metal for bullet hits, large firefight), so I won't really have a use for that.

But all the whizzes are great. Thanks a bunch.

And if you can get those wooshes... biggrin

Ok I uploaded some *sorta* whooshes to the same addy, these are almost impossible to find smile If you want to make them sound less high pitched etc, or want to use em for some sorta bullet time, then just slow them down and they sound real good at a lower pitch. Anywayz I'll see if I can salvage anymore whooshes as I don't think these are too great....

It was me and here is another for being polite. Boy, this force system is like when towns have the police give out "nice" tickets to people obeying the law. Pretty soon even ______ is going to be all polite and mushy.

Fill in the blank. I was going to write someone's name but people are a little sensitive.
