Description:

Simple theme. I tried to keep it as unintrusive as possible. It's based on electric piano, acoustic piano and strings so it feels somewhat organic.

Sounds included in ogg format:
Log On
Log Off
Error
Message
Question
USB IN
USB Out
Warning

If anyone requests IM sounds i'll be more then glad to do it.

Hope you enjoy.

Hi.

Yes, kinper is in world-domination mode since it's now being developed as part of Oxygen's icon/cursor theme for KDE4.

These are really good. It does seem that some of them are too long though. I don't mean the sounds, but the sound files themselves, they have a few seconds of silence on the end.

Thanks for commenting.
They are long because I make stuff with lots of reverb to make them sound "bigger" and to create this instant feel of "real". If you turn the speakers up you can hear the sound beeing "alongated" as if the sound was produced in a really big room, there's no echo just this feeling of "vastness". If the speakers are low then it just seems the files are unecessarly long. :)

This is awesome! A great artwork!

P.S.: Could you add a Warning sound to complete the scheme?

P.S.2: Is there any way of associating the USB in and out sounds in Gnome (Ubuntu Edgy)?

Thank you!!!

Okay, just added the warning sound. Hope you like. :D

From what I gathered there is no clear way to add usb sounds to gnome. :S

The "error" alone is such a relief. Kubuntu's original is very startling!!! Thanks much for nice sounds.

Kubuntu is overkill when it comes to sound. I was very impressed with the log on tune, but every thing that's "clickable", every message box, anything that moves on the screen has a sound. I'm surprised they didn't make a "hummmmmmm" sound for when the system is idle. :D

but I'm glad they invested on that, most distos don't care much about sound and have this "humpf" attitude towards it, they don't see it as a significant part of user experience. Like all things linux "it's a start", and if I can help in any way I'll be happy.

I noticed you registered on the same day you commented, that alone is a very big compliment. thank you. :)

Nice !! Though they have very low audio resolution no matters if they were recorded in 44.000 Hz *.ogg wich is a very good format...

It looks like you have been plugging mic-in with sint-out which is hawful or perhaps you got a bad PCM level.

Read backwards is just a suggestion, because your sounds are one of the best from here, but they would be nicer.

bye!

Thanks for the comment.

This is all software based synths, a USB main keyboard controller and that's it. so maybe I didn't noticed how Audacity converted the files to ogg (they were wav's originally) I implicitly trusted that it would keep the original bitrate. my bad.

thank you again for the input, I'll look into it.
