How To Make Hinge Sounds

This is a basic tutorial on how to make hinge sounds for Sidekicks with Adobe Audition, the process is the same in other programs, Audition is just my preferred application. Please notice it is very important that you verify that the final file size for your hinges is less than 100 KB, anything bigger than that will not work. In this video I used the MP3 format because MP3 compression allows you to make longer sounds with a smaller file size, and I find that the 56 kbps, 22050 Hz format sounds really good on the sidekick but the sidekick is NOT limited to MP3 and other popular audio formats will work as long as the file size is less than 100 KB.

Hi Cubanita, I needed some help with hinge sounds. So far I have made 2 custom themes, and my hinges work on one, but not the other. I have no idea why. My theme file is exactly the same for both. I don't have the code for the sounds on the same line either. Any suggestions?

Check the file size on the hinges that are not working, they can not be over 100 KB, if they are you have to make the file size smaller, anything over 100 KB will not work.
