Does anyone have a download available for all the SGI startup sounds in high quality (preferably in standard format)? Thanks in advance!
To me, it sounds like your recording is slower than it should be. I don't have my Indy on me, so I went to YouTube. In this video, the tune is seems to be more in line with the older recording than yours to my ears:I'm really curious to hear these, I have started collecting SGI sounds. However, the one boot sound from that collection that I can verify immediately is the Indy, and it is wrong (or my Indy is horribly broken). The version in that collection is noticeably sped up, and ergo higher pitched.
Here is my recording: https://www.dropbox.com/s/g93pgloovlpxme8/IndyBoot.wav?dl=0
Agreed with LarBob: I've handled a fair amount of Indy hardware over the years, and it seems to me like nintendoeats' recording is being played back too slow and low-pitched compared to the real machine.To me, it sounds like your recording is slower than it should be.

That is weird. I've never heard an Indy that sounds like yours.I re-recorded my Indy, this time through my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (the previous recording was through my AverMedia CD530 capture card).
Both recordings agree with each other, and to my ear do sound the same as the device itself (I would hope so, otherwise I have to throw out all my assumptions about my audio equipment ). However, I can also hear that the Indy in the video is clearly higher-pitched (and I assume therefore playing faster).
All I can say is, interesting. I don't know why mine would sound different. If it's a hardware fault, it's a weird and very specific one.
