    hi frederic,

    interesting... I just wonder whether the pool of random tags was extracted from a normal dictionary or from a 'dictionary' made of sound-related words (?). It seems to me that this might have some effect on your statistical testing...

    The pool of tags was built only using other tags from Freesound, no external data/knowledge was introduced at any step.

    Ah, makes sense now why I sometimes got unrelated suggestions. tongue

    Just one suggestion for tags: tag where the recording was made. For example, I was searching for funfair sounds for a project, but those recorded in other languages were of no use to me.

    However, I really appreciate your site. Keep up the good work.

    Great sound effects when you can get to them. Wish that everyone on Earth that can make a techno beat or loop wouldn't fill up every possible category with their 3 second glitch (masterpiece). I listen to all that stuff too, but do you think 80 samples per tag is a little bit much. There needs to be a place for those who wish to indulge themselves with doing that without clogging up the lists for those of us who actually need to find real sound effects. Much Appreciated

    I know the experiment is finished but this is still very interesting and helpful to read the comments. When I bought my first DAW a few years ago and started learning how to use it and had no idea about the midi editor I excitedly and gratefully searched freesound for sounds to play with. My husband has a hobby making stop motion animation, so we also greatly appreciate the vast number of sounds effects and interesting field recordings. Sometimes now I upload loops to give something back to a community that provided me with a lot of fun, and I shall definately take more care tagging.
    I guess there is a real difference between loops and samples that are generally for music purposes and "real" sounds for videos and then a huge grey area of ambience . . . maybe there could be some kind of broad category definition, such as will this sound be used mainly for music/remix purpose? that could cut out a lot of frustration for people looking for sound fx not drums or bass that sounds like something else . . . without seperating a community that is interested in both of these media.
    This site just keeps getting better, thanks again to you all.
