Quite why someone would need seven different sound effects of snoring, or the clicking noises of an Eastern Grey Kangaroo, is a mystery, but 6,000 Sound Effects is nothing if not thorough, and, at best, it’s worth several chuckles. This CD-ROM is aimed at those who want to use sound effects for presentations, on Web sites, desktops, or just for fun. Divided into nine categories–explosions, machines, household, animals, nature, cartoons, people, windows, pot luck–the sound effects are also searchable by keyword. The Explosions category is chock-a-block with various war-related sounds, ranging from old-west style shootouts to the eerily realistic sounds of an air-raid nuclear siren. Household noises range from the scrumptious sound of bacon frying to the spot-on rendition of brushing teeth, perhaps useful for a dentist’s Web site. Highlights of Animals is the positively diabolical growl of the Tasmanian Devil and the Persian Cat’s plaintive meow, though Bach causing a dog to bark is very Stupid Pet Tricks. Nature has its share of feel-good sounds–brooks babbling soothingly, crickets on a hot summer night–and weather xxxxx: tornadoes, hurricanes, and a cold hard wind straight out of Little House on the Prairie. The Cartoon and People sections are rather gag-centred: boings bonks and beeps, or the sound of a kiss, scream or slap. 6,000 Sound Effects is good value for money for those designing jokey Web sites, cheesy presentations, and comical sounds for the desktop.
