Ok, I know I haven't been on here in :iconforeverpinkieplz: but I told y'all it was gonna happen, so yeah... Don't hate me... ^^;

Anyhoo, I have been working on this animation and I am SOOO CLOSE to being done, but I have run into a speed bump...

You know that sound the characters make when they get surprised?
That kinda springish sound?
The one that Pinkie Pie makes in the first episode when she sees Twilight Sparkle for the first time, right before she jumps into the air and gasps?
This one?:…

Well, yeah... I CAN'T FIND IT ANYWHERE!!... ANYWHEHEHEHERE!!... :iconraritycryplz:


And so, I come to you, upon my knees from which you will find no arrows protruding:
Does anypony on earth (or equestria) know where I could get this sound effect?!
You guys are amazing, so I know somepony is smarter at searching than me! (Doesn't take much...)

So yeah, please help. I will forever love you!!

Oh yeah, here's a screen cap:…

LOVE Y'ALL!! :tighthug:


EDIT: Thanks for all your suggestions everypony! Y'all are :icondashsoawesomeplz: !
I was able to create the SF on my own and it sounds pretty dern close!! :smoking:
Now that y'all know that though, I'll bet you will scrutinise the crap out of it... ^^;
Thanks for everything guys!!! :huggle:

You could always record your own sound effects
I did know a site that has tons of sound effects, but I can't remember it's name. XD

You could of just extracted the sound effect, not that hard to do really.

Why not ask some other famous bronys on youtube? TheLivingTombstone works with sounds alot maybe he knows? Or if you got better ideas, this was just a suggestion.

I realize you recreated the sound already but I'll say what I think it sounds like anyway. A bed spring when you jump on it. Or at least, it sounds like mine.

[link] Here ya go, it contains all the sounds from Kryospawns soundbaorad back from version 4.3, but seeing as pinkie's gasp is around since episode one, it's in there. Yes there IS the spring sound in that soundclip, so it it doesn't work my apologies. Also, it's still a great reference to have a host of soundclips at your fingertips...Good Luck with the final project!

cut the soundfile out using mp3 with the seconds :D

Sounds like some usual Noise to me, or maybe detuned and distorted Oszillator sounds.
Not that hard to create. :)
Right now I'm at school, so I can't help that much. When I'm home I'll try create something like this, good practise for me as a producer :D
If I succeed, I'll send you a wav sample =)

A few possible sources of that sound (assuming you mean the rattly metallic sound when Pinkie first jumps up, before the zip):

1. An old-fashioned steel slat bedframe
2. Springs from a spring-based pectoral muscle exerciser/chest-hair remover
3. Closing a screen door onto the piston-stop (rather than letting it hit the doorframe)
4. Whacking a spoke bicycle-wheel that's been removed from the bike
5. Dropping a Slinky (the old steel ones you could use to garrote your little brother DON'T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT I ONLY THOUGHT ABOUT IT)

Foley: the art and science of "gee, that sounded cool when you broke that"

This program might be able to get it from the clip, although it isn't free
Newearthpony Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
depending on the file type you can use realplayer to convert the clip to an audio file and use that instead?
hope this helped.
