In need of short "News Jingle"

Hi all,

Is there any of you who would be able to create an orchestra News Jingle (for sort of "Breaking News" on TV) for me for free?
It should be 5-8 seconds long, and I need it soon.

All I've found so far on the internet is from TV/radio stations, and I don't think that I'm allowed to use them.
Others are not free.
But if you can provide me a link to such a jingle that is free for noncommercial use, I'd be happy, too.

Thanks in advance for your help! :)

It's kind of hard to search here but you may just find one and it is all open source.

Thanks for the link, Candle :)

There are interesting sound files. Unfortunately I haven't found anything useful for my current needs.

I've already searched on the internet for many hours, and it's getting frustrating :cry:
Is there anyone else who has either a link, or can create such an orchestral TV news jingle of 5-8 seconds? I'd be really happy if any of you could help me out :)

Are you looking for the news jingle you get before the news starts..Kinda like the introduction that you hear before A news anchor comes on..?

Exactly, a new jingle before the Breaking News is shown on TV :)

Yes, exactly. Orchestal and dramatic, and ends quickly after 5-8 seconds.

Looking forward to hearing your creation :D

Thanks a lot! :D

I think all of them are great jingles, so congrats to Tracey! :)
I haven't decided yet - just listened to all of them quickly, but probably I'll be using 3 or 4.
However for a later game, I might be using one of the others, too.

Of course I'll mention his name in the credits - I mention all names of persons who have provided something for my game :)
Does Tracey just want his name added, or does he also have a website link that should be also added?
