grand general train horn
Grand general train horns are the most iconic sounds in the world and probably in the entire human race. If you have ever been near one, you know what I am talking about. Every train in the world has them. These are typically loud and long and are made up of three tones. I have never seen a train horn like this.
The video below is the first one in the series and it is actually one of the first ones I’ve ever laid eyes on. The horn is a very simple tube, but it’s capable of creating a sound that has the power to shake the earth.
The horn, or “thunder”, can be one of the most frightening sounds in the world. It can be a terrifying sound to listen to, but it’s also a sound that can make our hearts pound and our adrenal glands race. The video below shows a guy who has been shot at point blank range by a train horn. It is an extremely powerful sound, but also very loud and it can cause you to lose your balance.
One of the major drawbacks of the horn is that it can cause headaches. The horn can throw you off your feet, even if you are sitting, and make it hard to remember where you are in relation to the rest of the world. If you are standing or sitting still, you tend to have the horn in front of you which can make it hard to see the rest of the world around you, even if you are looking in the right direction.
This is something that can be helped with a pair of headphones that will attenuate the sound, but the horn is still quite loud and it is impossible to get really quiet.
Yes, even during this very small window of time where you are totally aware of where you are, you are still being bombarded with the constant sound of a horn, which will really screw with your brain’s ability to retain the context of your surroundings. It’s like a lot of people in movies, and even in video games, tend to get thrown completely off their feet when the horn is playing.
Grand general train horn sounds really weird, there is a reason it’s such a common thing to hear throughout the world. The horn is a percussion instrument whose pitch (the frequency of sound) is set by the distance it is played at. The closer you get to the horn, the higher the pitch is. While you might think that the frequency of the horn is very high, it actually is very low.
The horn sounds pretty low to a human ear, so it’s not as loud as most people imagine. In fact, the horn can sound pretty darn peaceful, or at least un-awe-some. If you’re going to play it, why not just have the horn play along with the music in some way? You don’t have to sound too high, you don’t have to sound too low, just give it your best shot.
At the beginning of the game, you can set the horn to sound like a train to the nearest townsfolk, or even to the nearest town. Just make sure to let the village know that you are on a mission. They will think you are actually at work.
In the game’s backstory, there is a grand general who was a commander of a unit that was sent to stop the “hero” of a mysterious world. The hero eventually became a god, but the grand general was afraid that his unit would someday attack his own country. He decided to find out why the hero was so powerful, and played a game of chess with the hero to figure out how to defeat him.
