Sup guys, Alex Roman at your service. I am 19, huge animal lover, PDD-NOS and probably Aspie as well, and I came to this wiki because I learned how to recognize many of the media's most used stock sound effects when I was little. Jacobjohn55, one of my favorite people on the wiki says that recognizing stock SFX as good as he can is a sign of autism or Asperger's, which is accurate for me.

My Honest thoughts on commonly used SFX

In case anyone is wondering, this isn't necessarily complaining, but showing the world my honest opinions in a descriptive way.

I like it.

It's alright

  • Sound Ideas, CAT - DOMESTIC: SINGLE MEOW, ANIMAL 02 - It's decent-tier to my ears, but I heard better. It reminds me of Caillou when Gilbert meowed like this. A lot of Nick Jr. shows seem to like this effect. It does sound low-key sad, but it's also somewhat gentle and tolerable. I like this effect better in lower or higher pitches.

Neutral Tier

The Deadly 4

  • Sound Ideas, HORSE - EXTERIOR: WHINNY, ANIMAL 06 - It's not exactly my favorite, but I did find this sound effect to be quite expaserating at times, but to be fair, it reminds me of the Mo Creatures mod on Minecraft because horses neighed this effect. Because of this, I think that this is a low-key hit-or-miss effect (more hit than miss for this one).

I don't like it.

  • Sound Ideas, COW - SINGLE MOO, ANIMAL 01 and 02 - The 1st one is quite a powerful effect (well, too much for my own tastes), but I found the 2nd one to be quite irritating, especially when I was a kid. They sound almost like whiny cows. I actually cried after hearing this effect. One time this happened, I talked to my family about this problem and my dad told me that "Even if it's your favorite show, you're still gonna hear it". Turns out, he's right, all along, in that for example, I wanted to get into a show called "Fly Tales", but in the episode, "The Chocolate Coin", I fell for the 2nd effect and I rarely watched that show since.

I agree big time with WhitneyGoLucky about this and the rooster noises I'll mention below!

The deadliest of the 4

  • Sound Ideas, BIRD, ROOSTER - MORNING CALL, ANIMAL 01/02 - I hated this effect since I got traumatized once when I was little. Like the cow sounds, I used to cry after hearing this effect. For example, I fell for this effect in Fanboy and Chum Chum and I stopped watching that show since then. I think it's sad that sound editors for Nelvana shows use this effect. Also, f*ck any sfx from other libraries blatantly identical to them.

It is a blatant insult to roosters and their crowing. Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros. did a "morning call" right. I never want to hear that dumb shrill piercing*ss bullsh*t again in my lifetime.
