Low-quality mono sample (206.9kb MP3). Actual alerts are much higher quality and in stereo.
is a harp soundset built around a musical interval of a perfect fifth. (Even so, I still found a way to incorporate dissonance using 9ths, 13ths, and 17ths. Music theory nerds, rejoice.) Also included:
- Elysium Express, which uses a synthesized bell tone similar to those found in metropolitan public transportation stations. There is much less reverb than in the original arrangement, and it's ultra-compressed.
- NEW in 3.0: Elysium Symphonic, which features thicker orchestral scoring underneath the harp for a fuller sound.
The original Elysium sounds and Elysium Symphonic are encoded with AAC at 192 kbps; in Elysium Express, they're encoded at 128 kbps.
This soundset, like my others
, is a compositional experiment for me. I've designed it to express a unified musical idea while also remaining simple and functional.
The sounds activate on the following events: Connect, Disconnect, Contact Sign On, Contact Sign Off, New Message Received, Message Sent, Message Received, Error, File Transfer Request, File Transfer Begin, and File Transfer Complete. The MP3 sample at the top of the description plays the alerts in that order.
Please, if you're going to dock this soundset's rating, leave a comment of constructive criticism on how I can improve it.
