X-Bomber crashland sound

Postby Bladez636 » Sun Aug 04, 2013 2:00 am

Specifically the ones used when X-Bomber is shot down in Episode 1, and it's used a lot later on in the series. I'm always searching for this sound in other media-the most I could get of it in the clear is the ending bit of it from Episode 9. It has to appear in some other media-given "Star Fleet" has sounds taken straight off of "Space: 1999" episodes; "The Last Enemy" and "Space Warp" - it's not unlikely the rest are from other 1970's-early 80's British sci-fi series.If not, then go further and think if you've heard any of the Pluto Base Lasers, Imperial Battlecruiser and Fighter laser sounds in other productions (excluding Gerry Anderson's "Space Police" pilot).It's been annoying me for the past 3 years now.

It's quite a distinctive sound, like a screeching, crashing sound.I can't help but feel that I've heard it somewhere before but I'm only fairly good at recognising music.I'll try and keep an ear out though.I was watching a great deal of power rangers and was thinking how good some of the weapons and sound effects were.Seeing as you'd picked up on Star Fleet's effects so keenly, I wondered if you knew any way of getting at some of the more exotic sounds from Power Rangers.A big ask but ... you never know.

Yes, I noticed that between the Japanese version and English, some sound effects were different but many were unchanged.I particularly like the really searing, screeching sound for X-Bomber's wingtip guns that features when they escape from the volcano planet.I didn't like Power Rangers much until I decided to download it to refresh my memory.Then I was totally hooked.

You're right. The 'laser torpedo' sound does play at the start of the X-Impulse firing when the lever is first pulled and the emitters light up.Then you get this charging, accumulating sound and a lot of explosions.When I get the Unity Project complete, I'm gonna hit X-Bomber with a lot of work on its sounds.Would I be right in saying that, your sound effects pack that I have has the laser torpedo sounds and maybe the rear-lasers etc.?

I can easily whip it up for you. The beginning is from X-Impulse and the tail of it is from the end of the laser sound used on the Imperial Battlecruiser and Drone Craft...I need to do a revamped version of the SFX pack because I've gotten more since the last time...

That would be very kind of you. I would appreciate that a great deal.My initial checklist is the X-Bomber weapons; Laser torpedoes, neck lasers, X-Impulse, rear guns etc.I think I prefer the sounds from the turrets played in the Japanese version. They sound more like machine guns there.

Very much to my liking, thanks a lot! Any others you could send my way would be very much appreciated as well.So, where did these sounds come from? Did you manage to find an archive of them that was used in a range of shows?
