Female voice sound samples for welcome message ?
« on: October 09, 2006, 05:52:03 PM »
Hello folks,

I've decided to spice up a little bit my Amiga Workbench environment. Now i need some "earcandy"  :lol:

I would like to have my Amiga playing a sound sample in the WB opening. I'm thinking of a female voice saying "Welcome", or some greeting like that.

I do love the sound samples created for the Alien Breed series, that have been spoken by the beautiful voice of Lynette Reade. I can't remember if there's any "Welcome" sample used in the Alien Breed games, but if there is, that would be just perfect !

I'm looking for an atmospheric sample (if you know what i mean), and not just an woman saying "Welcome".

Do you guys know if there's some site in the Internet where i can find such thing ?

I've searched in Google, but only found some crappy things     :-?

Thanks !

Hi,

Get this old demo from Newtek.
IIRC, there's a Welcome IFF sound in it.

I was about to suggest Kiki Stockhammer, but you probably just beat me to it. :-)

There is a very "atmospheric" female voice saying  "Initiating Start-up sequence" during the boot-up of Knoppix.  This is interesting because, as I've been told, linux has no true startup-sequence file, but, obviously, the Amiga does.  She also speaks when the system shuts down.  She was present on 3.2 and the recently released version 5.

Anyway, she's worth a listen.  I think the 3.2 splash screen is cool, too.

Do you know where in the system, is hosted the audio files for the female voice ?

Is there someway to extract these files, without going the harder way of installing the entire linux destribution ?

Although i think Knoppix can run from a LiveCD, right ?

Thank you all again !

I'm just getting started with Knoppix, and my intel box is choking on heat.  Knoppix is distributed as a live CD or DVD.  I think one of Linux mags is carrying it this month.  You can also get the CD image from the net for free.  I can't get back to this for a few days, but I'll have a look for the sound file then.

@Mugo


There IS a "Welcome" sound sample in Alien Breed Tower Assault...........sort of..its a whole sentence but you have to cut out the Wecome part using a sampler such as DSS8+

Its the part when you acces one of the Intex Network computers  placed everywhere in the levels.............the sample says " Welcome To Intex Network" or something cloe to that.


Also about Knoppix....just coonect your Amiga with a sampler to the PC while it boots..and capture the sound file in IFF/8svx :-)

CD32 is actually the best Amiga ever made by Commodore!...

When 'female voice sound samples for welcome message' is mentioned, I immediately think of the welcome sample in the C64 version of 'Myth: History in the Making', where she says "Welcome to Myth". Was there the same speech in the Amiga version?

I downloaded a large pack with wav files of female computer related sounds. Try DC++ or emule and search for female voice or something.

To bad I lost it in my stack of DVDr's.

@Mugo:

Use Amiga's own female voice with "Say" command!

I've tried this, but nothing happens :-(
If I call something like "say Welcome" from a shell nothing happens. The speakers stay quite. Is there anything missing? I have an A3000T with OS3.9 BB-2. The Translator.library is in the LIBS: directory. Do I have to mount any special device?

Regards, Noster

EDIT: The speak-handler is also present in L:

EDIT 2.: Found it! The narrator.device was missing.

EDIT 3.: "say -f -r -n -s150 -p210 Welcome"
It's not very spheric :lol:

If you like alien Breed's "welcome" female voice you can grab it to iff with action replay.
