Portal turrets

Submitted By Tom Waterhouse (2DForever)


Portal Soundset for Adium. Voices are of the talking robot gun turrets.

Original sounds all belong to Valve and were recorded directly from Valve's Portal video game.


1.0: Initial release.
1.1: General quality updates:
  • Higher quality voice samples, ripped straight from Portal (Thanks to Ether)
  • Increased volume
  • Updated preview icon!

1.1.1: Fixed the missing sound 'turret_tipped_4.mp3' because I'm stupid and missed it out.

Sweet jebus this rocks! thanks

Cool concept, I love the turrets. I'd prefer a version that uses the original sound files rather than recordings from the game, but that's a matter of personal taste. Excellent work!

For me it wasn't a matter of taste, I had no choice! They were recorded from the xbox 360 version, and I wouldn't know where to start when it comes to pulling apart a 360 game!

As for sound quality, I don't think they're too bad all things considered ;) Did a fair bit of adjusting to make them even.

Of course I would love to use the original sounds - if anyone has them available let me know!

Ha very nice, only one minor thing, you spelled the name wrong its turrets not turrrents right?

# by 2DForever on 01/22/08 at 19:46:14

Whoops! That was a typo, now corrected, thanks :)

I'm making a note here, huge success.

It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

The sound "turret_tipped_4" doesn't seem to work.
Maybe it's just me
Who knows

Nope, doesn't work for me either.

Sorry for the slow reply, it's now been fixed. Thanks for pointing it out guys :)

This could get old pretty quick, but I'm loving it right now! Good job!

I'm mixing up my fav's from this one and the GLaDOS one. Got a whole Portal sound scheme going on.

Subconsciously, this freaked the crap out of me when I was sleeping.


Mute before sleeping.
