Help me identify the clich├ęd sound effect used to label locations in certain films and tv shows.

Is there a real world referent for that bleeping typing noise used in some films as a text (usually a location note) appears on the screen? It's a similar thing to that chunka-chunka typing sound used in the X-Files when the location of a new scene would be announced, but it's like a very rapid, high-pitched "beedeebeedeebeedeebeep" sound played while the letters appear.

silence of the shams

just how unrealistic is a gun silencer as presented in films, something about twice the size of the barrel making a pistol barely audible? how close to the "polite sneeze" sound of a silenced pistol can you get in reality with a similarly-sized muffler?

Silenced pistol sound effect?

I'm editing a low budget movie now and I need the sound of a silenced pistol shot. The only place I can find it is in extremely expensive CD collections. Where can I get this single sound, preferrably high quality and .aif format?

Is there a way to separate music from sound effects and dialogue in a film, starting with a DVD?

I watched Donnie Darko again recently and I thought it was a damn shame that Tortoise didn't do the soundtrack. I became ever-so-briefly obsessed with the idea of replacing some of the musical sequences with Tortoise music, but I wouldn't know how to do this without completely removing any sound effects and dialogue from those scenes. Is there a way for a non-audio-geek to separate these audio elements? Assume I'm starting with a DVD.
