    I would go about this thinking about feelings and emotions that i could translate to music/sound
    Some examples:
    Fear: fast heartbeat and breathing
    Anger: mad screams, sounds of bashing things
    Being chased, watched: footsteps getting faster and closer
    Sadness: crying
    Humiliation: haunting laughing (use stereo field to give sensation if several people laughing at you)
    Etc...

    Choose the feelings that you think apply, maybe some more i missed from my list, and go from there to build your piece.

    schizophrenia is not voices allone, all kinds of sensory perceptions can acure. Sounds, feelings, odor, seeing things etc. etc.
    you could use sniffing sounds, sounds of insects, slamming doors, footsteps, scratching, itching, breathing, radio and tv at the neighbours, animals, blankets, keys, water dripping, static noise etc. etc.

    good luck!

    Well, you could start by classifying the character of each voice as if it were a person (or some alternate form of sentient being!) and put that person in a place matching their character, be it a realistic or metaphorical place; then you could go for sounds that convey the feeling of that place.

    ignorant about sound & analogic-vs-digital, I have found this interesting article (March 2012)
    about Neil Young's proposal to offer uncompressed music at 24 bit 192kHz for download :

    http://people.xiph.org/~xiphmont/demo/neil-young.html

    "Unfortunately, there is no point to distributing music in 24-bit/192kHz format.Its playback fidelity is slightly inferior to 16/44.1 or 16/48, and it takes up 6 times the space.

    There are a few real problems with the audio quality and 'experience' of digitally distributed music today. 24/192 solves none of them. While everyone fixates on 24/192 as a magic bullet, we're not going to see any actual improvement."

    The article covers topics such as hearing biology, sampling rates, testing systems, lossless format, ambisonic and binaural rec.

    (sorry for my poor english, and for posting an old article-topic well known to some of you)

    For a media assignment I need to form a 6 minute audio clip, with no words being spoken in it- which represents a topic. I have chosen schizophrenia, and while there's many sound effects I could use, six minutes is a long time and I would like to make it realistic, does anyone have any suggestions for sound effects i could use?

    (Yes, I know schizophrenia is based on voices, but I thought I would give myself a challenge, and raise some awareness at the same time)

    Hello all. I hope this kind of post is welcome here. In my career as an editor and sound designer, I have found freesound to be an amazing resource for production endeavors. So I really, really want to give back! I have 8 years of experience in recording techniques, production and sound design, and would love to help any freesounders looking for a hand in recording custom, professional quality sounds. No payment required, if you are a freesounder, so please feel free to message me for any requests you may have.

    I will address any requests within 24 hours to give anyone on a deadline a realistic time-frame.

    Hello I was wondering if I can get a female to do me a beat tag for my beats in like a cute/ sexy voice saying "Retrojapan" this is an example of how I want it to sound https://soundcloud.com/xavierwulf/xavier-wulf-red-tide-feat-chris-travis
    After you hear it I want it to be like this one (click the link) but more better if you could do it like an anime girl or Japanese girl even better if not it's okay I'll accept anything similar to that you can send it to my email kakashibasedsensei@gmail.com

    I'm new to freesound and came here in my search for public domain music, etc. I'm a journalist making multi-media videos to supplement and promote enterprise stories that will be broadcast on our website, social media feeds, etc. Is it absolutely necessary to attribute sounds I use? How do I properly attribute sounds I find on this website? If they are on this website, are they considered public domain?

    Thanks for the help!

    Sorry, the post title is slightly misleading and somewhat bait - but this is off topic after all. I have a feeling HeadPhaze might appreciate this one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2414766/ Another I enjoyed.

    Do you get an error message?
    I can pass the question on to the site admins, who can have a look to see if there is a techncial problem.
    I am not involved with the running of the site. - the Mods only have special rights to approve/reject sounds submitted and things like that.

    Hi there,

    Are there any "flat design" sound packs that users have assembled? I'm looking for the swishes, pops, typing, etc. I've just been searching FreeSound and finding some great sounds, but wondered if there's already a pack somewhere that someone has organized.

    I imagine I would use some of them in commercial uses, so that would be the license I'd be looking for.

    Thanks!

    -Stephen
