    Folder checkbox and bulk description


    Ok so I've started to upload a set of oneshot samples of a complete multisampled grand piano 88 keys 3 strengthes. This gives a total of 264 samples. Right now I have to:

    * Check 264 checkboxes one per sample
    * Write a tag line and paste it 263 times
    * Write a description and paste it 263 times

    Where you could make the work so much easier for the user by

    * Checking one checkbox for the folder who holds the samples
    * Write one tagline and apply it for the entire folder
    * Write one description and apply it for the entire folder

    Which would you prefer to do?

    Best regards Johan Brodd

    giving all samples exactly the same description stops people from finding one of those samples. All samples are different and the descriptions SHOULD reflect this. I know this is sometimes very difficult, but the only way to SEARCH for samples is by words. SO if the description isn't accurate, your samples will never be found weird

    I understand what you mean, but if we have this feature I fear that people will abuse it a lot.

    Upload: bass drum / snare drum / hihat / .....
    Description: "various samples of my drum set"

    See what I mean?

    I suppose your post relates to this pack you just uploaded:

    Pardon me, but those are about the worst type of descriptions you find on freesound...

    I'm sure you can do a lot better than "piano"

    "A single piano note ( F3# ), recorded with the strings damped/released/.. from X cm with microphone Y, played fortissimo on piano Z. Post processing includes ..."

    Well I know it is a bad description, I wrote a quick description for change it when I got more time. The problem is still not solved.
