Before I start, I want to humbly apologize if this topic is in the wrong board. I also want to apologize for how awkward I sound - English is indeed my first language, I just suck at wording things. ;^^

So anyhow, hello everyone, I'm new here. Longtime EVA fan, first time poster. One thing that I like to spend my time doing is ripping sound effects from games. For the most part I've done this with a lot of Mario games, but I decided to try something a bit different.

I love Evangelion, and a significant part of that is due to its sound design, so I was disappointed when I couldn't find a pack of sound effects used in the series anywhere on the internet. Fed up, I thought I'd do it myself.

So at last getting to the point, I've ripped every single sound effect from the Neon Genesis Evangelion video game on the Nintendo 64. As far as I'm concerned, every sound effect is taken directly from the show, so it's basically a pack of Evangelion sounds. Every Angel roar, Eva unit stomp, and fleshy blood splattery sound you could possibly want all wrapped up in one neat little package.

There's one problem though - There's a lot of sounds (eight hundred and fourty-one to be exact) and all of them are unlabelled. See, I'm an EVA fan, I love the show, but I don't know it backwards, upside down and inside out like a lot of the people on this forum do, so naturally I didn't have the chops to recognize and label every single sound effect.

So I'm making a proposal, Evageeks - can you guys all work as a team to identify and label all eight hundred and fourty-one lovely sound effects? The cards are on the table, all you have to do is turn them over! It'd be a daunting task, but if this gets done, we can finally have a repository of Evangelion sound effects! Thanks in advance!

This is very cool. Not sure if I can help identify the SEs, but it's nice to have raw voice acting (even if you have to edit it).

Nice collection! However, I wonder if a frequency-related setting was set incorrectly during the ripping. The clearest indicator of this is that the voices in BANK_01 seem to be at chipmunk speeds. Anyone else encounter this issue or is it only me?

For example, check out BANK_01_INSTR_0051_SND_0000.wav This voice file, like all the others, plays too fast and high-pitched on my computer. To investigate, I took that file into Adobe Audition and time stretched it using the resample setting at a ratio of 200, thereby making it slower and lower pitched, and it became Kaworu's natural speaking voice.

I don't know what you used to rip the files, but if you have a setting that lets you control the sample rate or playback rate of the exported file during ripping, try setting it to different values like 44kHz, 22kHz, or 11kHz and see if the resulting files yield natural-sounding voices and other sound effects.

A quick Google search yielded [URL=http://forums.ffshrine.org/f63/understand-proper-sample-rates-important-68280/#post1302342]this thread on another forum[/URL] which suggests that not all N64 games used the same sample rate for their sounds, so some experimenting with the settings may be needed. Hope that helps. Of course, I may be wrong about what's going on since I am guessing from limited information.

Oh, and I'm pretty new here too, but welcome!

yeah, unfortunately it's only natural for some sounds to come out like that, no matter what settings you use - I think the developers probably slow it down in programming or something. At least, as far as I know. Besides, all of the non-vocal sound effects are at more or less perfect speed, so yea

That's rather nifty. The guy(s) working on a fangame might really appreciate this as a resource.

I finally bothered to sort these samples out.

Here they are: http://www.mediafire.com/file/99mdkraw2 ... rected.zip

Bank 0 are the sound effects, which were all an double speed, or twelve steps too high.

Bank 1 were the vocals, the most annoying part. Some where 12 steps too high, and some were 7 steps too high, like thy were recorded at different qualities. I had to play back all of them to and guess which was right, as I've never watched the show subbed.

Banks 3 and 4 were samples instruments for the music in the game. They were correct as is. I plan on using these samples and making full blown instruments in the future.
