    Hi,

    i need a Drummed Ritual Chant that increases in Speed and then Climaxes into silence.

    One marvellous example that actually lingered around in my mind for quite a while is used in this old but golden game.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_2RUPllkik&feature;=youtu.be&t;=8m54s

    I can manage the Drums, but i need somebody with a deep voice doing the same ritual phrase over and over again with increasing anticipation of something gruesome to come smile

    Any Volunteers.

    PS: Yes i saw the savage creature sound on freesound. Its awesome.
    Its just the timing that is off to what i need.

    I second Headphaze’s comment, something isn’t right there. The definition of a ‘sound’ versus ‘music’ as far as Freesound uploads are concerned should probably be tightened up.

    I realise it’s a somewhat philosophical issue, but in my mind, the scope of Freesound is building blocks for original compositions, as opposed to completed compositions. But that opens a whole other can of worms, given the subjectivity of music and the number of corner cases between ‘sound’ and ‘composition’.

    In the end though, I think that content projects need to be tolerant of new contributors not immediately getting everything right. MORTradio’s comment reminded me of my attempt to contribute to Project Gutenberg, which was an exercise in how not to welcome contributions. That said, my own experience with moderation on FS, even when I’ve got things wrong, has been nothing to complain about; maybe the mod in question just got out of bed the wrong side. smile

    Hi people

    I'm in the process of writing a trance track. I would just like to know if there is anyone out here on free sound. Who would like to callobrate.

    I'm not that great at lyrics but I can do the music.

    one of the legends says the light saber sounds are made with a electroshaver attached to a long wire that swinging arround a microfon. bzzzzzzzzzz

    a other legend (that found the way to wikipedia) says:

    The lightsaber sound effect was developed by sound designer Ben Burtt as a combination of the hum of idling interlock motors in aged movie projectors and interference caused by a television set on a shieldless microphone. Burtt discovered the latter accidentally as he was looking for a buzzing, sparking sound to add to the projector-motor hum.

    The pitch changes of lightsaber movement were produced by playing the basic lightsaber tone on a loudspeaker and recording it on a moving microphone, generating Doppler shift to mimic a moving sound source

    If you can, I would very much appreciate a sound effect of a couch falling over. Now this may seem very specific but it's for a short film I'm making in high school. I hope you will be able to do it and would I very much appreciate it!

    Hi MORTradio

    I'm sorry to hear you feel a bit disconcerted about the decision with your upload.

    Did you upload it to another site in the end? Is it possible for me to hear it to give you a second opinion?

    Well Panda Dan, at least you were up front by calling your work an original soundtrack.

    I submitted my one upload recently (I have been a member for approximately two months), and it was rejected and deleted within six hours by a moderator, stating that I should submit "music" to the sites listed in the FAQ. The moderator's post was polite, but had the same rhetoric that you would find in any form letter (most likely it was a form letter). Although disappointed, I kind of shrugged my shoulders and forgot about it.

    Well, forgot about it for about a half a hour.

    Having my upload rejected really started bugging me after a little time had passed, mainly for two reasons. One, I did go over the rules and regulations of the site regarding uploads, and had review other people's work, concluding my work was the same as theirs. Secondly, I believed my upload was nothing more than a musical sequence (at just over one minute), a sequence that editable in more than one way. It definitely wasn't a song or soundtrack selection by any means. I have heard "sounds" on Freesound that I believe a reasonable person would consider to be a "song" or full-on "music".

    Obviously, I wrote back on the moderation ticket within the hour of receiving it, stating that although I would respect that particular moderator's decision (hey, its their place), I did not agree with it. I found the decision to be unfair and wrong. I listed 8 different examples (and there are more) in my reply where I felt the "sounds" were nothing more that actual music tracks. As of this time, I have yet to hear back on my reply.

    Believe me, Panda Dan, I realize that rejection of my upload was not the end of the world. Perhaps I went to one too many Gerry Spence Lectures, so now when something bothers me, I debate about it. Just reading your post reminded me of my situation that happen just a couple of days ago, so I thought I would write about it. As I see it, its their place, so they have the right on who to let in and who to kick out. I may still use Freesound, but I definitely won't submit any more uploads to it. That experience didn't go over well in my case, and frankly, there are already enough "Foley" type sounds here.

    I wish you continued success with your music, Panda Dan.

    All sounds in tv programs, films, cartoons and games are copyrighted.
    The only stuff that is safe to record is the stuff you make. If it was made by someone else assume it is copyrighted.

    sorry

    Oh, great! The one sound I really need, and it ends up being copyrighted and unable to make it through moderation!

    Attention, Wario fans, helpful people, ect! I need someone to do a recording of the boss Cractus from Wario Land 4! To get to Cractus, complete the entry passage then the emerald passage, ensuring you collect 4 pieces of treasure inside 4 chests that make up a whole gem in the four levels to unlock the door to the boss. Oh, and you also need a key which is like a ghost with a key for it's nose to unlock the next level.

    What I specifically need is Cractus laughing. To make this happen, let him drool on you, turning you into zombie Wario, and then he'll hang around the top of the screen laughing. I need a recording of that! The easiest way to make him drool is to hurt him by ground pounding on him head.

    This will be used in my Awesome Foursome animation you will get a special THANX in the end credits!

    Koopa for short, you have completely missed the very carefully explained point! You could NOT post them here if you used the original tune (which I would presume is the point of your original suggestion) because it would VIOLATE THE COPYRIGHT! As an additional observation which you really should have picked up from reading any number of recent threads, Freesound is not a place for posting songs.

    I think it was North Korea- in December last year their internet shut down after the country was suspected of the Sony hack.

    I'm not sure that actually happened. I know South Korea has a lot of internet censorship and this is heavily loaded around pornography, explicit material and communication that could potentially damage the reputation of the establishment. Its tyrannical
