Sugar Plum Fairy

Sugar Plum Fairy

Submitted By Christian Cosas (csquared)


Low-quality mono sample (264kb MP3). Actual alerts are much higher quality and in stereo.

Check out Auric Goldfinger's Sugar Adiplumy Fairy dock icon, which goes great with this soundset!

This is a soundset based on "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker. In Western countries, the ballet and music are often performed during Christmas time. The instrumentation in this soundset is based on the original orchestral score and features the celesta.

This soundset, like my others, is a compositional experiment for me. I've designed it to express a unified musical theme while also remaining simple and functional. The alerts are encoded with AAC at 192 kbps.

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.

v1.1 - 3 December 2007 Increased volume on all alerts.

it's a nice sound set, however I unfortunately can't use it as I know the piece too well. Whenever I hear a sound from it i anticipate the rest of it. Good job though
