Wow, this is BY FAR the most definitive and helpful response I have EVER received from a forum. I'm so glad I asked!! These sounds are a great reference point for me. I would love to get them in 24/96 wav if it's not too much trouble.

Thanks again for your help feldon30. This is fantastic!

The first time was in the pilot "Genesis", and at the time there was no actual leap effect sound (or visual for that matter), other than the clock spinning back and the camera flying back and then upwards). At this point, leaps were depicted with dramatic orchestral music heavy on woodwinds.

The second time was also in season one with Double Identity, where the project's efforts to retrieve Sam instead leaped him from Frankie LaPalma into Geno Fescotti, with the standard leap sound. I've edited together somee different leap sounds from season 1 to produce a representative effect. I have attached it below as a 192kbps mp3.

The third time was The Leap Back, and for this one there is a unique variation -- a "mangling" or distressing of the standard leap sound. Again, I've attached this below as a 192kbps mp3.

For reference, I have also included a definitive leap effect sound that represents the seasons 2-5 leap effect.

I hope you find this helpful. If you need either of these as 24/96 WAV please let me know.
