I have my first short doc and I want to have it able to be aired on tv and shown in high school film festivals. Does anyone know where I can get bleeping noise thats standered in the tv world.
I not sure exactly which noise you are refering to however there is a standard tone at the begining of a tape with the "Bars" that is 1 KHZ at 0db. Many editing programs have the ability to synthesize this tone. I use Adobe Audition where you can find it under Generate/tones. Also many sync generators have this output like the Horita bsg-50.
As far as bleeping out for censorship I don't think there is a standard sometimes they just cut the sound.

Just as an aside, I've never been a fan of bleeping (unless mandated) cuz in my opinion if you're gonna call that much attention to the fact there was a swear word there with a distracting beep, the viewer's brain is "inserting swear word here" anyway, so I'd just as soon hear the thing. It especially makes me cringe when I hear "ass(beep)" or "(beep)dammit" on TV. It used to be that you could say "pissed off" but not "pissed on," and I'm still kinda getting used to that change. I felt a huge wave of relief in college, when I could get an A on a script for class that was littered with F-bombs (and that also happened to be about a student attempting murder of his screenwriting prof. . .).
