Hey, I was just wondering if anybody knew where I could download a wav file with a silent dog whistle noise in it, if you know of it please dont spam just msg me it.
I've been searching for this for days and yet it's very hard to find one that;
1. I can't hear
and
2. My dog can hear

Im not sure how much a dog can hear still have to do a bit more studying. Thanks. grin

I doubt standard speakers have the ability to actually produce that sound. Then again, unless you put a dog in front of your speakers, you'd never actually know if it can, would you? smile

I believe all Sound Editor programs, such as Cool Edit and Sound Forge have a feature in them called Tone Generator. You can generate a very high pitch tone with this, but it wont be very far out of the range of human hearing, and probably wont make your dog go very nuts (but it turns my cats' heads). Your sound equipment is also designed for human ears, and for this reason won't play the tones that would significantly distract your dog.   But it's worth a try.

A typical PCM .WAV file has a resolution of 44 Khz (or 44,100 Hz) (CD Quality).
This is the best quality sound file that most soundcards can playback.
This means that you can record or generate and play-back a tone up to 22,050 hertz.

Typical speaker systems can produce sound between 80 - 20,000 Hz with sub-woofers typically going as low as 27 or 22 Hz and some tweeters boasting 24,000 Hz (and 40,000 Hz?)

The typical adult human ear can only hear sounds as low as 16-30 Hz to 15,000-20,000 Hz if you're lucky and don't listen to loud music or work around machinery or mow the lawn.

A dog can hear from about 70 Hz and up to 100,000 Hz, with a typical dog whilstle at 30,000 Hz. I imagine a dog also receives significant hearing damage from the sounds of household machinery and airplanes and such, sounds that we may not even be aware of. Something to consider if your dog's mood shifts, becoming suddenly depressed or anxious.

Behold the power of Google. smirk

I sense a nifty sequel to the mirc powered toaster here...

Requirements:
-Cordless High Quality Headphones
-Really really good soundcard
-The Dog Whistle Wav or a tone generator
-A hapless dog
-The right mix of determination and lazyness - lazy enough to not want to get up for a beer but determined enough to train your dog to do it for you.

Sit back, relax, and use this alias
/f2 /splay FetchBeer.wav

and if your even lazier, record yourself praising the dog.

/f3 /splay Goodboy.wav


Who needs SOAP when you have Ralph the Booze Hound?

Also by the way for some reason my doctor said I have super sensitive ears so I can hear alot better, but dog whistles sound like someone left the stereo on max!
