does anyone have a few mouse squeaks they are willing to share? im not sure what i have to trade, but i smashed a TV in an old warehouse once with some cool results, and i have a few ZOOM shopping centre walla/ambience with no music, or in a few cases very little music that you cant understand.
if not i might just see if i could get a useable result at a pet store, but im not to sure how often they actually squeak.
if someone has some ideas to recreate a mouse squeak, i would love to hear it too.
Get one of those stools that you twist/spin to raise higher or lower - like a piano stool. One that is squeeky is easy to manipulate and I'm sure you can re-create a sound like that if you manipulate something like that with pitch shifting it up.

Get some car brakes. Everytime I listen to a zoom recording of traffic, I hear all these new squeaks and I think they are car brakes.
My favorite mouse squeaks came from pitch-shifted puppy yips. Find some clean puppy yips, and pitch shift them up without time compensation and you'll find some really neat and natural sounding mouse squeaks.
I used a stock puppy yap track from the Hollywood Edge (yeah, I know) and it came out rather nice on the other end.
