I love this website! I noticed it also has other search engines listed. When
I have more time, I will see which ones besides Google are accessible.

Subject: [bct] Search engine for sounds
I am probably the last one on the planet to explore this site, but, I had fun visiting it last night.
Dan I just read your message before writing this one. You can choose
various parameters for the search, including 16-bit. The sound clips I
believe do not exceed 10 seconds. You could check it out to see if it has
anything you could use. I like finding new sounds for my sound scheme and
also listening to various nature sounds like owls, birds and other animals.
Also, someone on this list mentioned using didgeridoo at the 20 questions website and I had never heard of it. There is a sample of that instrument at the above website and here is the definition of it:
Definitions of didgeridoo on the Web:
Aboriginal Australian wind instrument made from Eucalyptus tree branches which have been hollowed out by termites. They are usually
painted with motifs of mythological origin.
. The didgeridoo (or didjeridu) is a unique wind instrument of the
Australian Aborigines of northern Australia. It is sometimes described as a
trumpet or "drone pipe". Musicologists classify it as an aerophone.
It truly has a strange sound. I enjoy learning new things and it was fun to
actually hear the instrument demonstrated as well as reading a definition
There is a link to an interesting article about sound at the above website some people might like to read. The direct link to the article is:
