Rhasspy sounds - wav examples

Hi all!
I’d like to customize rhasspy sounds, so maybe anyone has good wav examples?

Tried several ones from the internet, but it doesn’t work because of rate mismatch :no_mouth:

I asked a friend who uses MacOS to record some AIFF files for me. Ran them through Audacity to clip off the leading and trailing silence, and convert to WAV format. MacOS has several different voices, and I chose ‘Samantha’ (pretty much Siri). Unfortunately, I cannot attach them here. These are the MacOS commands to create the AIFF files:

say -v Samantha 'Ready' -o ready.aiff
say -v Samantha 'Done'  -o done.aiff
say -v Samantha 'Error' -o error.aiff

Then in Audacity, you load one file, use the cursor to select and cut out the leading and trailing silence. Finally, File / Export the remaining file as .WAV and you should be good.

Thank you!
But i thought, maybe someone has “sounds”, not speech :nerd_face:

Get the ones from snips :smirk:

I was thinking the same. But I cannot find the wav-files of snips’-sounds.

Do you have a file path for me?

(I have Snips installed on my Raspberry Pi 4)

Found it!

The files are called:
start_of_input.wav
end_of_input.wav
error.wav

and are saved in:

/usr/share/snips/assisstant/custom_dialogue/sound/
