When a treefrog sounds, it’s usually a little bit of a buzz, or a clang.
But sometimes it’s not.
For instance, the sound of a leaf snapping in the wind, the squeak of a bird in flight, or the clunk of a car on the road.
These sounds are all the same, so the treesfrogs aren’t making noise like they should.
But what if we could turn the treefrog into a sound machine?
That’s what Rhonchi Lung Sounds is.
It is a small, low-powered sound generator that mimics the tree frogs.
And, it works.
This sounds, which have been dubbed “tree frog sounds”, have been making a splash in the music scene for years.
The sound is a mix of the natural sounds of the sea, a tropical breeze, a tree, and the occasional bird.
The result is a combination of sounds that’s different from what you might hear in the real world.
So why does it work?
Rhonchis is the work of an engineer from Japan, and his team have been tinkering with tree frogs for years, to make the sounds that they hear.
They used to get them to mimic tree frogs, but then realised that treesfrog sounds could be made to mimic human voices, so they turned to the animals themselves.
Rhonchanis team also got a bunch of birdsong.
Bird sounds are normally made up of different sounds: they’re mostly made by birdsong, but some birds also make sounds that mimic the sounds made by animals.
“They make noises that mimic human vocalisations, so we wanted to make them a lot like trees frogs,” explains Rhonoch.
The team have developed a sound-generating algorithm that mimicked tree frogs using the same algorithm used by trees and birds.
“It was just very difficult to get that sound in our system,” says Rhonach.
“But we did manage to get a few birdsong from the trees, and we were able to create this natural tree frog sound that is quite distinctive.”
Rhonachi Lung Sounds uses a number of different techniques to make its sounds, including a noise generator that makes sound by vibrating a coil.
Rhinoch says it was important to have something that was able to produce a wide range of natural sounds.
“You need to be able to generate all these different sounds that can go from tree frogs to birdsong to the real tree frogs,” he says.
Rhongchi Lung sounds also uses a device called a microtongue, which is a little piece of plastic that allows the tree frog to feel vibrations.
But the microtongs are still relatively small and don’t have the range of sound that you get with a full-size tree frog.
“The microtouches don’t sound very good,” says Dr Rhonbach.
“There are some very important things that we need to fix.”
Rhontchis team are still experimenting with different sounds to create their own unique tree frogs sounds, but there’s no doubt that Rhonichis tree frogs sound will become a regular part of the music industry.
“We are just working to make our sound more interesting, more beautiful and more interesting for people,” says Luccio.
“I think that we’re already on a good path to getting it to the mainstream.”
The project is funded by the University of Miami.
