Any idea where I can get a Law & Order style of "dum-dum" punctuator without being in violation of their copyright? Thanx for any and all responses.

I fear that I already ask too much of my "soundie friend in Baltimore." But thanx for the off-line suggestion, Ty. You truly are Mr. Audio.

They could be referred to as "tags" or "audio transitions" if my memory serves me correctly.

There doesn't have to be much in one of those. Probably 2 secs in the case of Law and Order. It's really just some kind of percussive sound, possibly several, with heaps of reverb.

You just need a similar concept and you can probably do it yourself. You only really need to layer a few sounds, add a few effects on top. What you choose these sounds to be is a matter of reflecting on the style of your cut. The Law and Order thing reminds me of a judges gavel. I don't think it is, but it reminds me of it and it fits the theme.

Anyway, that's something to think about.

I think the most important aspect of the L&O chung chung is the rhythm. If you replicate that I think people will get the idea.

It's not answering Nick's question... but here is a fun little article about the sound....

I haven't talked with him in quite a long time, but many years ago was friends with Dann Florek (Capt. Cragen). Dann told me that when walking down the street people will "Chung! Chung!" as he passes by....
