    The only such program I know is Sony SpectraLayers. Although FBI could have some secret inhouse product. SpectraLayers will show clicks in badly edited file as continuous bars over all frequencies and the noise pattern will changes (different samples have different amounts of noise), unless mixed files are synthetic or filtered to death from any noise (which is hard to do). If file was mixed using some interpolation (i.e. fade-in/fade-out), frequency amplitude will linearly decrease there.

    Audacity is very limited in spectral editing or analysis. The only spectral feature Audacity has is select a rectangle and deleting it out, which Audacity does literally, without using any interpolation algorithms, resulting in corrupted sound. No listening to selected frequencies, no copying them or moving, no noise filtering in selected freqs. The only way to to filter noise at high frequencies in Audacity is to do highpass filter and feed result into noise reducer, and then mix the result with lowpass of the original, like they did in stoneage.

    Usual editing is very basic too. I.e. cutting out chunks and copy pasting them leaves clicks. It is nice to have ability to do exact precise cutting in some cases, but not in general editing. The only great feature is volume envelope. But there are no equalizer envelopes or any plugin dry/wet envelopes.

    Generally Audacity is not very user friendly and needs a signal processing PhD to use, because it does nothing for you.

    I would suggest applying some effects to the loop, change the envelope and a little pitch-shift, so it becomes unrecognizable, at least to the automatics, like google content ID hashes. If the original author finds out, you can always use "it just happens to sound similar" defense.

    This brings up something that has been nagging at me as of late. I see people (sometimes on ccMixter) saying they have used GarageBand, etc. samples, and releasing their work under CC licenses that allow derivative works.
    So this is considered legal?

    You can't extract (perhaps you could, but this is a grey area) the individual waveforms from the composition. When it comes to making music with samples, you can do whatever you want with this music (again, could you sell music made with garageband samples, yes!).

    Actually, modern audio editors, like SonicWorx Isolate and Sony SpectraLayers, do allow isolating anything you can hear in the song. Even latest Audacity has some spectrum editing capabilities. So either I can take a CC-BY song, extract Garage Band samples out of it and sell them in my own product or we are not allowed to license anything produced using Garage Band under CC-BY. Same for audio clipart libraries, like Sound Ideas - you cant both use sound ideas samples and release the work under a free license, like GPL or PD.

    Dear Freesounders,

    As part of the Audio Commons Initiative (that we introduced in this blog post), we’re rolling out a survey to gain insights into how creative users interact or wish to be able to interact with Creative Commons (CC) audio content. We’d like to get feedback from sound designers, musicians, sound engineers, game audio developers and, in general, from anyone working with CC audio content.

    You can participate by accessing this url: https://goo.gl/U8mAz9

    The objective of the Audio Commons initiative is to promote and facilitate the reuse of CC audio content in production environments. This includes the development of new technologies for annotating and organising sound samples and music pieces, the development of technologies to support easy licensing procedures of CC audio content, and the development of tools to allow easy access to CC audio content within existing production environments such as a DAWs or video editors. Freesound is playing a big role in this initiative as, together with Jamendo, we will be the first repository of CC audio content to be part of the initiative. Therefore, the success of the Audio Commons Initiative is the success of Freesound wink

    Please participate, your opinion is very important to us smile

    Thanks!!!

    I've seen people here using CC-BY-NC and CC-BY-ND samples and releasing them as free under CC-BY. I guess original authors could make some money by suing youtubers and indie game devs.

    Hey buddies,

    I am ne1w to this forum, I signed up because I need some help and it looks I made the right choice- I hope so tongue

    I'm working on video for a school project. At the end one of the actors ask a question which is actually the same as the slogan of our graduation so it's a very important shot, very important ending.

    I am looking for a, should I call it, progressive music that starts low and calm then progressively gets more intense, it stops when the actor asks the question then a BOOM and black screen!

    I can easily found the boom and edit the effect so it stops before the question.
    '
    But can you help at least with the keywords I should use to find such progressive "sound effect"?

    By the way, the hot is no more than 13 seconds, so nothing too long...

    And to be more accurate, I am looking for nothing musical, let me say only beats?! Something like the music before they announce results in game shows but not exactly the same! I don't know if you get me right guys tongue I hope you will!

    Best wishes
    Jihad

    Hi again klankbeeld,

    I tested uploading with your sound and it worked fine for me (safari/osx).
    I could upload and describe (although then it was obviously rejected because file is already part of Freesound).

    Did you experience similar problems with other files?

    Hi klankbeeld,

    Hmmm that's strange. I just tried to upload an ogg file and it worked in both uploaders.
    Could you please host the file somewhere and send me a link to download so I can test with your file?
    You cans end a private message if you prefer.

    Thanks!

    I'm glad you created this post. I was thinking why would anyone get sound effects with glitches from this website.
