    I'll second the DPA suggestion. DPA makes really nice gear.

    I see those high-end CD players Nagra makes and their "tube vinyl pre-amplifiers" and I get a bit nauseous.

    "hi quality power outlet cords to make your music sound even better for only $199"
    "platinum covered audio connectors with quadruple shielded cables for only $99/foot"
    "oh no, of course I have two completely separate amps for the left and right channel. think of the crosstalk!!"
    "my hifi costs 25000 euro - of course I don't have a cd player 44,1/16 bit, ha - vinyl all the way!"

    I'm really, really allergic to that kind of thing.

    Of course nothing says that their "pro" gear falls in this category, but I can't help thinking they might overcharge...
    </rant + flamewar>

    A lot of the price in Nagra stuff is in the name, and it is true that they have a whole line of products that market toward people who believe they can hear the difference between "burnt in" speaker cables (And other silliness like that). However, their pro recording gear is very intelligently designed and quality built (Although the silliness can sometimes carry over into the "pro" line too. Example: the 4.2). From what I've heard from people using the Nagra V it is a beautiful sounding and extremely reliable field recorder. I would love to get my hands on a Nagra LB to play with...

    Just a note to let you know that I am an amateur musician who enjoys writing and recording my own songs at home for fun.

    I have used Herbert Borlands Steam Train Whistle sample on my song called That Train
    and Vincent Sermonne's Reggae Loops on a song called Jamaica Wolf.

    You can hear them here on my Soundclick Page at www.soundclick.com/combobob

    Thanks again everybody for the great resource you have created here.

    I've never got on with FF. Endless updates and still some basic things didn't work.

    I have no idea what's up with Firefox, I use Opera myself, it always works just fine. To download from the link I posted earlier, right-click it and select 'Save Target As...' or something similar.

    Just because it ends in ".wav", doesn't mean it is a wav. You can check the filesize, see if it's what the wav is supposed to be (4.86 MB). If it's much smaller, it might be an incomplete download or totally wrong download.
    See what happens if you try to download the file from this link here: http://www.freesound.org/download/15826/15826_transitking_telephonering.wav

    thanks for your welcoming! (and i will not start new threads with the same problem. i beg your pardon!)

    i was using Audacity 1.3.6 and now i tried with wavepad/masters. - well. same problem! i start to become teary.
    your other questions: it looks like succeeding in downloading .wav files. (it is not ending up with .php it is ending .wav - like i wrote.) yes, i can play a wav files on my computer. but not one of these, witch i downloaded from freesound.
    well, you have any more idea? hope so!
    thanks.

    Kanzan, may I first begin by welcoming you to freesound. I hope you like it here!

    Sounds like you have a potencialy very serious softwear problem with the softwear you have. I am mildly surprised that nothing is happening with Audacity – what version are you using? But the programme that I use most of the time is wavepad:
    http://www.nch.com.au/wavepad/masters.html

    Alternatively, type “wavepad” into google search. It works for me and hasn’t failed yet…

    Hope this helps.

    hy, in download some wavefiles (FF 3.03 on Windows XP SP2). But with all software i tried it was impossible to play or to convert the files. I tried also what is here in the forum recommended: "Audacity" and "dBpoweramp Music Converter" - i get allways somehow the answer "file doesn`t work" (i download some other fles and again the same files - allways no function!)
    What are all you doing different? You have now problems? What kind of information do you need to give me helpful answer???
    thanks a lot!
    greetings.

    If size is an issue for you then the lossless FLAC would be the answer surely.

    How are you trying to use the file? What sort of file is it? What software are you using? How many questions can you ask in one forum post?

    I'd like to integrate freesound.org with LMMS (lmms.sourceforge.net). Would this be ok with the site admins? We would conform to any constraints you might want to put on the relationship, display a freesound ad banner, etc. It would be really nice to have an API though. What say you?
