[Request] Reversed cultist sounds

Post by Gez »

The "cultist" monster comes with sounds from Blood that are very distinctive and don't fit well in the ambiance of a game such as Heretic or Hexen. If anybody with sound software could take the six OGG from the attached file and reverse them, maybe slow them a bit and adjust the pitch to make them sound more at home with the sounds of the Disciples of D'Sparil or the Dark Bishops, I would be grateful.

I'll have a go at it, then. :)

How are these?

... I have to admit, about half of them sound comical now. I could swear DSCULSI1 now sounds like "Oh?! Snuggle!" :laff:

Thanks.

Yeah, they evidently need further adjustment. I think if they were slowed down a bit as well, making them less excited-sounding and lower-pitched at the same time, it could be better.

But that's where good sound editing software is needed. With something like the Windows XP sndrecorder, you can only halve or double the speed, which does not result in anything good. Further, you can't adjust pitch independently of speed.

Still, it's a good start. At least they don't seem to say "Yellow shit throw!" anymore!

Hmmm, I don't think this is any better. :?

Honestly, you'd probably be better off just throwing out the sounds and starting over again. The Blood cultist screams are of a very distinct nature with frenzied pitches and specific inflections... they really, really do not lend themselves well to reversal because of this, and I don't think lowering the pitch or applying filters to the audio will do much to help it.

Heh. :)

DSCULSI4 is not bad, actually. Just for some sort of big beefy demon, not for a human(oid).

As opposed to the green kind the bishops sling around? Or how about "modern oxen fear books!"

Yeah... I don't if we can do much more with them, and still have them sound sentient. (As little as they seem to now... "Ooooooooooohhh? Hey shorty.")

Then again, you'd probably be a better candidate. (Yes, I've listened to your D'Sparil-waxes-typical-taunting-villain recording. Nice. ;) )

I probably went overboard with the editing. Not sure if you'd be interested so I only did three sounds.

They sound pretty creepy - like an undead cultist or a ghost cultist or something.

ZShare is uncooperative to say the least. It made me wait 50 seconds five times in a row, and every time the "click here to start download" link just sends me back to the timer. :|

Hmm. Interesting, but yes, that's a bit overboard. The latter half of DSCULSI4 might be usable, but the other two have a sort of jerky staccato effect and aren't even recognizable as voices anymore. Still, thanks.

I do have to point out that while it might sound a bit silly if you're listening for English words, the cultist language in Blood is actually a real(ish) language. The words are derived from Latin and Sanskrit and there are actually both formal and casual forms of speech while using it. It's probably my favorite fictional language, incomplete as it may be. The more you know!

Aw shucks, you're making me blush...

Not to be a dick, but why don't you download Goldwave, and do it yourself? It's an essential tool for any modder really.
