Hi there.

I would like to add the four note "jingle" that precedes all airport PA announcements, to a website. But for the life of me, I cant locate this jingle/music as a wav file anywhere on the net.

This short, four note melody is almost endemic in PA systems, heard it yesterday while shopping in Farmers Dunedin store, so I figure it should be reasonably easy to locate on the net.

Not so, Iíve spent nearly 2hrs looking for the same, HYCH.

Thanks...........John in Mosgiel.

Thanks...........John in Mosgiel.I have a microphone that is/was an announcement microphone.. It sits on a base, and one button makes the Mic work, and the other makes a "bing bong" noise... Wonderful thing... Source of much confusion when used as the sound engineers microphone during sound checks :)

Ok, that doesn't help much, but i just thought i'd share :D

You might need to brush up on your search techniques. I came up with heaps of potential sounds (haven't got the time to wade through them all) by doing a Google search (http://www.google.co.nz/search?hl=en&q=airport+announcement+wav&btnG=Google+Search&meta=).

Here? (http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/forum/index.php) There's a couple there, but you need to register. Search on PA tones

Have you thought of getting someone with an electronic keyboard to work it out for you? as far as i know its just any four successive notes of a major chord (well that sounds like it anyway). Is that what you are thinking of?

Does it have to be 4 notes? I used a slowed down door chime when I needed one. Just 2 notes, but got the idea across

You could use this to make it yourself, Able MIDI Editor 1.3:

Was free when I got it, but it may not be anymore.

Could you get hold of a Xylophone and create the bing bongs from that.
Just like on Hi-De-Hi........Bing bong..."Hi de hi campers".

Thanks for all the replies, some replying in the wee small hours as well.

Lookis like Im going to have to either produce it myself or get hold of Air NZ / Farmers and have a word with their management/technical staff.

For something thats so wide spread, its almost impossible to locate on the net.
