Looking for sound files
« on: March 07, 2006, 08:17:12 AM »
I am looking for some sound files that I can put into my tournament.

I'm hoping to find a person's voice saying "one minute remaining" or something to that effect.

Can anyone help me out?

Love it  ;D

What do others use as sound for their tourneys?  I use a cattle call type of sound when there's one minute left in the break and then the wsop banjo theme at the end of the break itself.  I'm going use this one minute remaining wav for the rounds.

Any others with cool sound themes?

Well, I have a whole run of those sounds.  Here's how a typical round goes for our tournaments:

"Twenty minutes to go"
"Fifteen minutes to go"
"Ten minutes to go"
"Five minutes to go"
"Three minutes to go"
"One minutes to go"
"Thirty seconds to go"
"Ten seconds to go"
"Five seconds"
"Three"
"Two"
"One"
Microsoft sound - TADA (from Windows XP) plays for the end of the round.  Players have told me that this sound seems to happy for the raising of the blinds, but we all love it anyway.

For the end of the game, I have Strong Bad saying "It's over!" for normal tournaments, and an hockey air horn (the one you hear when the home team scores) for major tournaments.

You can use this website to create spoken wav files.  However, they may sound a bit robotic.

The WSOP sound is always used as they enter commercial.  Don't you think it should be used at the *beginning* of a break?  :-)

Can't remember where exactly I found this one, but it's good for letting players know the game is about to begin.

I have that.

That's pretty much exactly what I was looking for.  Thank you very much for posting it!

Could you tell me where I could d/l some of the others?

I'm sure that some of you have seen this site before, but here is Clay's TD Sounds.  There are some good ones in there.

Start>Programs>accessories>entertainment>sound recorder.

At least for Windows machines.  You can make your own sound files say whatever you would like - in your voice (I may have my wife redo mine - her voice is more soothing).

I have an "All players are now on break"
a "The blinds are going up"
a "rebuy period is now over" (which I would like to follow with Bruce Springsteen's song "10th avenue freezeout", but haven't done that yet).

I have found that attached Simpson Files add a little bit to our home game.

If you really want something in this life you have to work for it. Now quiet, they're about to announce the numbers...
