Sound Tests & Clips

Sound Clips for testing audio systems.

They're in Windows WAV format because both Windows and Macs can open them.
The WAV files are 48 KHz/16bit/Stereo because of their video heritage.
If they won't open in QuickTime For Windows, right click, save, and open in Windows Media.

LRMonoPhase4.wav (Left, Right, In-Phase, Out-Of-Phase Test, 48k/16, WAV 7.3MB, 39 seconds)
Simple but for the end.
The last segment is intentionally damaged by flopping
the electrical phase of only one side.
I may sound like I'm in a deep hole
or possibly coming from behind you. On
mono sound systems I may vanish completely.
You're in trouble if the wrong segment does that.
Concert Hall Simulators may produce weird effects on
all the segments.

This clip isn't complicated. It's me, an RCA BK-5b ribbon
microphone, an FP-24 mixer, and a Mac PowerBook.
