Diddy Kong Racing Music Question

Frosty Village Music Question

Twitter Question from Xavier Rodriquez

@David_Wise Hello David Wise, Im curious where you got that Whistle sound in Diddy Kong racing, usually used when you select Conker in the main menu. Also the guitars in frosty village. its one of favorite tracks and reminds me of playing the game on xmas time.

David Wise’s Answer:

Frosty Village Instruments:

Whistle: It might have been from a sample CD. To me, it sounds as though it has been made using a flute sample, with a soft attack and a pitch shift up, just for the beginning of the sample, followed by vibrato ( pitch modulation ) – to give the effect of a whistle.


These were definitely from a sample CD. I think it was called Reggae Connection. I just used a few samples and used them at different pitches.
