No. "It is a bottle-popping sound" or something similar would be more natural.

Thanks.

When you say "no", you mean "it sounds completely wrong" or "although it is grammatically right, the sound is awkward"?

It sounds unnatural to me, a pop doesn’t get out of a bottle it has no agency of its own.

Sound comes from things, it’s emitted or made by things, it does not “get out” of things by itself.
“My car makes a funny sound when I brake, it needs a service”.
“The champagne cork made a loud popping sound as I opened the bottle”.
“There’s a strange sound coming from my speaker there must be a loose connection”.

To this native English speaker, that sentence has no meaning. I could only guess as to the intended message.

You could make it grammatical by the use of hyphens:

It is a pop-getting-out-of-a-bottle sound

but it would still be unnatural – see Sarriesfan's post above.

Thanks.

Then, would this be ok, A pop coming out of a bottle sound? Now does this make sense in many ways?

And one more thing, is the following structure also correct?
A Jimmy-created souce.

I need to ask you something.
Does the word "pop" in your sentence mean "a short, sharp, explosive sound" or "a flavoured nonalcoholic carbonated beverage" (what Americans call "soda")?

In Audiendus's suggestion "It is a pop-getting-out-of-a-bottle sound" he is using the "flavoured drink" meaning - the sound of that drink pouring out of the bottle.

George W and Sarrriesfan seem to think you mean the sound "POP!"

******************
If you mean the drink, then I can understand "A pop coming out of a bottle sound".
It sounds very strange - I don't know why you would want to say it like that, but I could understand it.
Aas Audiendus says, it would normally be written with hyphens (or maybe with inverted commas).
A pop-coming-out-of-a-bottle sound - A "pop coming out of a bottle" sound

It would normally be "A sound like pop coming out of a bottle".

**************8
"A Jimmy-created sauce" also sounds very strange to me - "A sauce (that/which) Jimmy created" or "A sauce created by Jimmy".

Thank you, Drqgon.

Yes, I meant a drink, soda.
Thank you for the clarification.

For my second question "Jimmy making", even though it sounds odd, is it still grammatically correct form that I could switch with other words: an angel made cookie?

That never even occurred to me, as I never call a soft drink pop, I only thought of the sound pop.

Hi Joe Kim.
Yes, that sort of phrase is totally grammatical, and is used often in some circumstances. It is just not "normally" used for individual people.
It was a hand-made shirt, and so very expensive.
There was one British-built ship and three Russian-built ones.
I prefer home-baked cakes to shop-bought ones.


An angel-made cookie would be a cookie made by angels.

*********************
Hi Sarries -
It's a hang-over from my childhood. "Pop" was the only word we ever used for it.
"Soda water" was very specific, just water and CO₂, no flavour. "Soda" was powder - baking soda or caustic soda. "Mineral water" was spring water like Angel Revive or Evian.

"Pop" as a word has become much more popular since 2004 - I suppose influenced by "alco-pop" drinks.

A a child we called them “fizzy drinks” or “fizzies”, never pop.
Soft drinks is the more adult name for them.

Yes Soda was baking soda, yum soda bread and caustic soda for cleaning my gran had a top opening washing machine I remember her sometimes putting some in there.

I think there are probably regional favourite names.
Up here (around Edinburgh and Livingston at least) Coke, Irn-Bru, Vimto, fresh orange juice (and so on) are all called "juice".

I still use bicarbonate of soda (sodium hydrogen carbonate/baking soda) in baking and sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) for cleaning the oven and unblocking drains. I've never put caustic soda in the washing - but I suppose it would have a bleaching effect.
