I was inspired by this great post
to make some of my own songs, using Harry Partch's virtual instruments, and record them into ACID Pro 4.0. How do I make those Flash movies my audio source? [more inside]

My CRT monitor puts out a high-pitched whine that changes tone depending on certain conditions of which I'm not familiar with (in other words, the tone fluctuates). It's not overly loud but it's definitely noticeable - it's quite irritating. It used to do this about a year ago then stopped only to start again last week. Anybody know why it's happening and how to stop it?

What to do with a Receiver? Someone in my building left a decent Pioneer receiver near the dumpster, obviously hoping that someone would put it to good use. I believe I might be that person, but am not sure what to do with it. I've already got a reliable radio that I enjoy listening to, my record player has it's own pre-amp, and I don't feel a need to add surround sound to the TV (in part because it would mean buying a mess of speakers). But I'm betting someone out there in MeFi land has a clever and novel idea for how it might be employed. [more inside]

The Tell-Tale Buzz, or: This Wall, It Vibrates? For the last several weeks (nearly a month now), a buzzing/vibrating noise has been coming from the wall between my apartment and the next one, driving both me and my neighbor crazy. What on earth could be causing this? (more inside -- literally) [more inside]

I need help finding some good content! I am putting together a course on Sociology of Religion using Powerpoint (in the David Byrne
stlye), and I am at an almost total loss on finding short video clips, sound bytes, cartoons etc. to add to the classes.
What I am looking for is along the lines of the way that The Simpsons skews religion all the time (ie funny, not trying to sell you anything), though I am open to anything thought provoking.

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.

His name is Dave Dunston. Or possibly Dunson. Or possibly some other variant that sounds similar; I've never seen it written. He is, or perhaps was, a British air traffic controller. Many years ago he gave a talk on air traffic control, and commercial aircraft in general, to a group of British bankers. Somehow it got recorded, and was broadcast on Max Ferguson's show on the CBC. It is definitely one of the funniest things I have ever heard. I managed to tape it, but the old cassette technology is dying a speedy death. I want another copy, preferably on a more dependable medium. Has anybody heard of this guy? Does anybody know how, or if, this air traffic control talk recording was released? Somehow it got into Max Ferguson's paws; I want it in mine.

I want to buy these speakers
, but it seems they are only available from Japan
, and other far-eastern countries
. Does anyone know of anywhere I can buy some that will ship to the UK (Amazon JP don't), and have a site in English? (Or be easily decipherable by a stupid Brit?) Alternatively, can anyone recommend any 2.0 or 2.1 speakers available to the UK that have optical digital input? [more inside]

Whenever I hear Garrison Keillor tell a story, I get this warm fuzzy feeling. And there are a few other people whose voice seem to have a subduing effect. Whose voice affects you, in a positve, warm-fuzzy way? Is this anyway related to the brainwave/sub-auditory post?

This is my first AskMe question: I've been annoyed for months by a sound problem with my PC. Simply put, my speakers pick up noise from the processor and hard drives that really offend my audiophile sensibilities. I think the cause is an IRQ sharing issue, but I'm not sure how to resolve it in Windows 2000. More inside... [more inside]

Say you have two holes in your front car doors where the speakers should go. And say that even though you can wire them up, you have no way
to attach them, because the geniuses that can design a car to drive 300,000 miles can't make interior door panels that don't shred like cardboard after a quarter of that. What would you do? [mas adentro] [more inside]

I have a Marshall Valvestate 20 (8020) practice guitar amp. The built-in reverb has stopped working, producing just noise when you turn it up and a sort of wobbly sound if you bump the amp. Also the amp itself has a lot of hum, which goes away when I touch the strings. I'm too cheap/broke to get it fixed but know how to use a screwdriver and a sodering iron. Suggestions?

When I record video on my Nikon Coolpix 4500, the sound is a fraction of a second out of sync, which is enough to turn every family video into a kung foo movie. Any suggestions on what might be causing this?
