    He's referring to the walls/surfaces around you.
    If they're solid, like walls and furniture panels, they'll reflect the sound around, including back into the mic, making the recording less clear. By padding the surrounding surfaces with curtains, blankets and the like, you lessen the room's natural reverb in your recording, making it better.

    What do you mean "....and pad with blankets/pillows."?

    Nope, but a small tip for recording, whenever you record go into a closet or something similar(a small room)and pad with blankets/pillows.

    I know.
    But I'm thinking about going grand. I'm having an interview with an old friend of mine who is in an advocacy bureau that treats international cases.

    Kyle has offended against many more sound-creators than image-creators, but as the images are used on all the videos, and have all-rights-reserved , (not creative commons licensed), they are an Achilles' heel : if someone makes a copyright-infringement complaint about one of the images, an entire channel will go. I'm kicking myself for not thinking of that earlier : I mistakenly thought the artwork on the videos was bespoke like the banners on his YouTube channels.

    In his defense, he retired my sounds after asking him to.
    However, that's the only defense I can make of him.

    Perhaps, Timbre, we should take more direct actions? I understand your will to catch him using every possible strategy, but it starts to feel a bit ridiculous and I think we should take a more direct approach. Don't you agree?

    A few seconds in one of those cool sounds remind me of the data tapes of our dear old home computers like the ZX Spectrum or Commodore 64 smile

    Single Windows DLL files or sets of DLL files glued together interpreted as RAW PCM sound files
    of various sample rate/bit depth parameters.

    This is nothing short of awesome!
    As I was listening it reminded me of something. It threw me back to my teens: actually, I done this before. - I loading game files into audio editors on my Amiga computer! I used to go looking for and rip the game and music sounds (ooops!, Yes, I know, copyright infringement!). - My music was not being published anywhere, so I can say those sounds remained for my own private use. Plus, there was no internet back then and I certainly did not know anything about copyright in those days.
    Anyway... I digress...
    The point being that I collected many sounds of the data itself. Some of which I eventually used in little music tunes. - This was back in the early 90s! Who would have thought I would not only be doing this again, but actually doing it together with a group of people over the internet!

    So, thanks Trebblofang for taking me back to my younger days smile
    And these files are certainly amongst the best I ever heard.

    Firstly. I don't think there is such a thing as a "boring" sound, all sounds have potential for creative purposes.


    I think you're confusing an adjective associated with the (perceived) characteristic of a sound with its usefulness. Meaning, kb7clx found the sound itself as boring without thinking about it's potential use. In fact, I can extend that to say that most sounds in almost any sound library are boring as standalones. Just listening to the sound without assuming that it will be used for future productions, the sound probably did sound "plain" as AlienXXX pointed out.

    Now it's my turn to have a listen to the sounds. grin

    Yep, this can sometimes be the problem when I have too much to drink when reading/posting: completely missing the point, I also get carried away with myself. Still, I personally wouldn't have described them as boring, but I can see how others might and especially some of my own sounds. God, the amount of times I've told myself to stay away from freesound when drinking.
