[audacity4blind] Re: Might be a bit of an odd question - is it possible to simply/easily tweak an existing sound to try to get it to fall into a frequency range

Ok, what I did was take a sample of the sound clip I wanted to use for this - if of interest, it's a Suzuki Bandit 1200, with an after-market Yoshimura tri-oval exhaust canister fitted - and, then using the frequency figures for the harmonica I have here, and, using the change pitch effect in audacity, I tried tweaking the basic frequency of the clip had extracted to match the required frequencies as close as possible - or until they sounded more or less right to me.


I then combined them all into the following audio clip - listen to it if you want to, or don't, since it might just sound a bit odd to some ūüėČ:

And, yes, in case you were wondering why I care about things like this, it does relate to that the term in my e-mail signature relates to motorcycles, and, not bicycles, and, this bike/exhaust combination happens to have been my favourite in the old sighted days, and, these sound clips are how I wish my fellow two-wheeled community members a 'happy birthday' - odd, but, life/personality, or something...LOL!

ÔĽŅAndrew,¬†here¬†is¬†a¬†basic¬†example¬†-¬†it's¬†the¬†happy¬†birthday¬†song,¬†being¬†rendered¬†

I pulled that one off youtube, where someone had just taken different sounds 
and combined them into that clip.  However, for example, was thinking about 
taking a specific motorcycle/exhaust combination that provides a cleaner, 
clearer sound, and, putting together something similar, but, using the 
frequencies gathered from the notes I know how to play on a harmonica, etc.?


Suppose best will just be to take the sound, and adjust it a bit at a time.


And, yes, this is all a bit of a side-thought, and, not really of much 
importance...¬†ūüėČ

Hi Jacob
I am not sure that I fully understand what you are aiming for.  I just did some 
playing around with the pitch change effect and wonder whether it may be worth 
a bit more investigation.  I was able to change the key of an entire song by 
simply selecting a different key.  I selected the entire song and applied the 
effect and it was all processed.

Hi there


Know this may sound a bit odd, but, sort of relates to using alternative sound 
forms to render a version of something like a common tune - for example, I know 
the frequencies of the notes for happy birthday, but, might want to take an 
alternative sound form, and, process it to play back in the frequency ranges of 
the notes of a song like that?


Know could tune this bit by bit, using something like the change pitch effect, 
but, just wondering if there's a simpler way to handle it, using output 
frequency reanges, etc.?
