    Favorites...


    First off, I love this site. I love the ability to actually use it to mash some sounds together and get a base layer of samples that I ship off to my cohort for further mashing.

    That said there is one thing I would L O V E to see here. I would like to have a feature that allows one to select samples as their favorites, then you could go to your list of favorites and have them all in one place. It is also sometimes difficult refinding those samples I liked.

    Thanks! Keep up the good work. I will try to contribute to the freesound project myself soon! I still need a decent mic for my mp3player / recorder...

    I agree that would be nice... although right now you do have the "attribution list" that displays all the sounds you've downloaded.

    Sometimes, though, I feel like keeping track of a sound to download later. smile

    or you could simply download the samples you like and keep them all nice and neat in one folder. Just a thought :wink:

    Instead of downloading everything i keep the sounds i like to return to in a seperate freesound folder under bookmarks (in firefox).One click and i'm back there! I can also rename them too,so,for example -Opus 123- becomes-Ambient strings-.
    This works fine for me but it would be even better to be able to do this within the site.
    So yes,a good idea. smile

    "good idea!
    what about a list of favorites users too?"........ that idea I like. Sounds you can download and keep in other folders-I can't download and save users.

    A list "my personal favorit contributers" and the server database generates their latest additions. Would be nice.

    I would find this really useful as well.

    @dchadwick

    This has been implemented as a feature after the release of Freesound 2.0 - I don't know if you noticed but this thread is more than 9 years old.

    When viewing sounds, either in a search list or on the individual sound's details page you will find an icon that looks like this:

    That's the bookmark icon. After clicking it you will be presented with this settings dialogue:

    Then when you go to the home tab you will see a link to 'your bookmarks' under 'all comments'


    I am the thing that goes bump in the night...

    The favourites idea is a great one. It might also be a better, or at least more positive rating system to show how many times a sound has been favourited instead of the star system that cmbines positive and negative.
    Anyway, yes, favourites. Great idea!
