The controller vibrates when I'm near them, but I don't know what to do.

Screenshot of one of them on the map:

The left and right motors in your controller will play a pattern when approaching these. It will pause briefly before repeating. You need to mime the pattern back with your left and right triggers.

My vibration was off, so I missed this the first time through. If you're having trouble, the right motor was a higher pitch in my case. Instead of feeling the sides, I listened for the pitch.

As far as I know, across ports, you can't solve this on your own without a vibrating controller.

    Wow, vibration was off for me too so this one was ultra-confusing. Some of these solutions blow my mind.... – SpaceBison Apr 15 '12 at 21:01

    Yeah, they could have been less oblique with the in game queue for this. I also had vibration off. Like several of the puzzles I couldn't solve I was pretty bent that the solution involved information I didn't have. – EBongo May 1 '12 at 0:41
  • So how do you do these in the various desktop ports, when you're using the keyboard? (Frustratingly, I managed to solve one by pure chance.) – starwed Sep 21 '13 at 21:24
  • How do you manage to do it if you are in a PC (without vibration controller)? Maybe there we should disable the vibration in the options in order to something to give us an alternative. – SysDragon Sep 22 '13 at 15:39

    I confirm the possibility to solve this without vibration. You have to listen to the sequence of noises which are being outputed to your left/right speaker while you are standing close to "U". It's better to use headphones for that task. – Danny Lo Sep 3 '15 at 16:39

If you're playing on the PC, while you're standing near the tuning fork a low tune will be will be played on the left or right earphone. Press the corresponding key (A or D) to rotate the perspective following the tune.

I checked with my headphones it's very subtle but it's there. So, I think with normal speakers you'll definitely not hear a thing ;-)
