Fav+ startup sounds

What are your favourite startup sounds? You know the little
chimes and jingles that play when you turn certain things
on?

My favourite is probably the PS1.

I'd have to say that one is my favorite, too. So much
nostalgia evoked by it, and yet it's still interesting and
(really) beautiful from a sound design perspective today.

Back then, I used to dream that the sound was created using
the PS1 hardware, and one day someone would unlock the
secrets of the console and turn it into a synthesizer the
way people did NES and the like. But I think mermaidman is
probably correct that it was made elsewhere and simply
played back through the playstation's sound chip as a wav.

The PS1 sound was so futuristic and evocative, still sounds
futuristic now imo.

least favourite eno composition
i think it's interesting how such small compositions still
represent something
I mean, obviously!! but what are the rules? Like particular
pitch intervals that 'mean' something? I suppose it's just
like music but it because its so shorter its easier to
analyse how it affects u
like last nite i noticed choice of ringtone Wallander's
phone in UK Wallander remake (not sure if same in orig
version? If different that would be interesting)

well yeah I wouldn't listen to it for fun, it does its job
of making sound like something magical is gaining
consciousness I suppose.

God yes I do. Easily my 2nd favorite!

Fun Fact: Apparently, Yuji Naka has said that originally,
they wanted to make Sonic a breakdancer and planned to make
an animated sound-test screen where he would dance to the
game's music, but due to time/budget constraints they
couldn't. What to do with the remaining cartridge space,
then? Thee iconic digitized “SEEEGAAA!” chant, which
came from their TV commercials, was born. :)

that was for the megadrive, the master system had the same
melody but done with a 8 bit music chip

I've been racking my brain because I know there's a good one
that is escaping me atm. The best I can up with is the whirr
of the computer fan and Valve's Half Life intro - but that's
not strictly a start up sound imo (nor is Seeggaaa btw, RD).
I'm treating this as strictly system start-up.

Lazy start up

^^ not fav+ but one I'm familiar with in recent memory (RIP)

The switch doesn’t have a start up sound - just a click
click click bwarp. On that menu though where you have to
press a button 3 times - when you press other buttons, like
the triggers or if you push in the left or right sticks it
makes different sounds. Useless but fun.
