Suggested Uses for the Sounds

  1. Musicians may want to experiment with some of the sounds for their own compostions or mixes. 'Clarkey Pad' works well with varied speeds and pitches and is used in this way in 'Harvest Tone'

  2. Another use of the samples is as an alternative to the default sounds used by Windows; for example 'Harvest Tone' as a start up sound or 'Drain' when you empty your recycle bin!

    Please note that only the WAV, not the MP3 versions are suitable for this use.

  3. Another possibility is to use some of the sounds as unusual mobile ring tones or message alerts; your phone would of course have to support mp3s or wav files for this to work.
    I might include midi files later on to cover a wider range of uses; please contact me if you have any suggestions related to this matter, technical or otherwise.
