Garfunkel in need of sounds.

Hello you all! Maybe you heard about Garfunkel. It’s a Simon clone that I’m writing (so slowly…). Now, I need a help with sounds. Do someone help?

I need these sounds:

  • A (red, upper right, frequency=110Hz);
  • A (green, upper left, an octave higher than the upper right);
  • D (blue, lower right, a perfect fourth higher than the upper right);
  • G (yellow, lower left, a perfect fourth higher than the lower right).

All the sounds must have 2 versions: a duration of 300 miliseconds and another with 400 miliseconds.

  1. If it’s a simple sine wave you’re looking for, you should be able to write a small program easily using libsndfile to generate these tones.

    Also, audio editors such as Audacity have a tone generator which can also be used to generate these tones.

  2. You could try generating wav files for these sounds with sox:

    for duration in 0.3 0.4; do
    for pitch in 110 220 147 196 ; do
    sox -n garfunkel-$pitch-$duration.wav synth $duration sine $pitch;

  3. I tried many ways, but always I hear a pop when the sound starts adn again when it ends (using gstreamer). Testing gnome-games (from where I copy the sound play code) I hear no pops.

  4. I have a crazy idea: my housemate is a violinist and I could ask him to play these sounds for these lengths, maybe? Unlikely to get exactly 300ms or whatever though.
