ABOUT ALL SOUNDS ASSASSIN’S CREED—FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESHUNS
1. Why did you start this blog?
I wanted the “Leap of Faith” or the “Loot” SFX as a ringtone, and was looking around the web for rips of the sound when ran across this forum that explained how to extract sounds from the PC version of the game. I tried it and found +10,000 of all the sounds that were possibly heard in Assassin’s Creed II. After nerding all over the floor and wondering what to do with all of these clips for a few days, I came up with the idea of creating a blog dedicated to sounds from the Assassin’s Creed series. So on September 2011, “All Sounds of Assassin’s Creed” was born.
2. What can I use these clips for?
Anything your heart desires, my friend. You can use them as ringtones, computers SFX, fanmade videos, etc. You WILL NOT, however, try to make profit out of it. All of the clips belong to Ubisoft, and music belongs to their respective producers and artists. Selling things that are not yours is a big no-no.
3. How are you getting the clips?
Check this page for instructions.
4. Do I need to ask permission to use the clips?
Not at all! Whatever is found in this blog is free.
5. Do I have to credit you if I use any of your clips?
It’s highly appreciated, but not necessary. But I’m sure you would recommend this blog to others, right? (:
6. How come do you don’t have many sounds from the first Assassin’s Creed?
Unfortunately, the programs I’m using for the later series AC1. I have yet to find a program or method that will extract sounds in fairly good quality. Currently, I am replaying the game with the music and SFX off to record to voice clips. Music and voice are off when recording SFX.
7. Do you take requests?
I certainly do. Just make one in the ask box.
8. How about submissions?
Of course! Please do share your work especially if you have used any of the clips from the blog. However, please do not make requests through submissions or fan mail, or they will be deleted.
9. How long does it take you to answer requests?
It varies. If it’s one particular voice clip from major characters, I can post it as soon as you made the request. Dialogues, sound effects, music, etc. can take a little longer as they are more complex. Clips from AC1 will take the longest to answer because of problems mentioned in question #6.
10. I sent a request but you never answered!
I don’t reply to requests unless it’s something that’s already been posted (or else majority of my posts will be answering asks and that’s no fun). If you made the request not too long ago, check the tag labeled “request" or look through the tag list to see if it’s there. There’s also a chance that the message got stuck on Animus Island. In that case, just send another message.
12. I’m looking a certain clip. How do I find it?!
First, check the tag list. The clips are divided into which game it is heard in or a tag link of their name if it is a character. I know it’s a lot to go through, but there’s a 72% chance that you will find what you are looking for. If it’s not there at all, make a request in the ask box.
13. How come you don’t have download links anymore?
Apparently hosting sites don’t like it when too many people click on shared links. If you would like to have these audio clips, use safe and totally free programs such as TumTaster or JDownloader. Soundcloud posts have a download link on the player, but there’s a limit of 100 downloads for each clip. Check this post on how to download the clips.
14. When do you start posting clips from the newest AC game?
Depends on when I get the game and when I finish it, along with when the PC version is released (see next question). The most I’ll post in the beginning are soundtracks as they are sometimes released earlier than the game itself and provide the least amount of spoilers.
15. What console do you play Assassin’s Creed?
Playstation 3. I extract sounds from the PC versions my friends kindly lend me to get the necessary files.
16. Can you post a super duper clean (i.e. no background music, sfx, voices, etc.) clip from a trailer/video??
I wish I can. I do not have the program or the exceptional skills to do so. There’s been attempts but the results were rather poor. It’s almost impossible to filter out every background noise without the original audio. Unless there’s the original floating around, I can’t do it.
17. Will you make more audio clip collections on Youtube like before?
Maybe someday. Whenever I feel like it.
18. Assassins or Templars?
You kidding? It’s all about the minstrels! (But my loyalty lies to the Assassins of course).
19. I have a question but it’s not answered here!!
The ask box is always opened for queshuns.
