    Sounds like it might be a problem at your ISP. Perhaps their customer support can help.
    Have you tried temporarily setting a different DNS? (Dynamic Name Server)?

    I use Firefox on micro$oft Vista with Demon Internet and the occasional similar problems I've had (but not with freesound) have always been at Demons end, usually when they have issues with their DNS, or something reported as the "Authentication Server" whatever that is.

    Thank you, that's a good idea. I checked, and apparently my ISP only has one domain name server. So I looked up freesound's IP address and pasted that into my browser, and it resolved to the domain name just fine by itself. However, I still got the exact same "400 Bad Request" page. If I get the same result using both the IP address and the domain name, I'm thinking that this issue is something other than a domain name resolution issue.

    The problem certainly could be my ISP, I agree. However, in my experience trying to get them to say anything other than "This is nothing to do with us" is such an enormous hassle that I'd like to try everything I can before I embark on that long, frustrating journey.

    Thank you for the suggestion. smile

    In case anybody's wondering, I'm still getting the "400 Bad Request" page after nearly a day now. Stay tuned for the next exciting installment! tongue

    ps: I love your nickname, strangely_gnarled. smile

    Hi.
    I'm looking for a sample with distant sound of battle.
    Artillery, and machineguns bursts, and the crackle of rifle fire.
    Anyone able to help?
    Thanks in advance...

    Hello all,

    I've been having an intermittent problem accessing the freesound website. I'm using Safari 4.0.4 on Mac OS 10.5.8

    I haven't been able to isolate the problem or reproduce it deliberately. I've observed it recurring intermittently over the last few months. This issue has only ever arisen for me on this website and no other. As it has recurred several times now, I thought I'd mention it here. This is what happens:

    Sometimes when I'm logged in, and I click on any freesound link or try to refresh any freesound page, I get a mostly blank page with

    400 Bad Request

    nginx/0.5.33

    Here's a screenshot from a few moments ago when I tried to access the freesound home page:

    http://spleencast.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/400-bad-request.png

    But then I try to access the freesound website through a proxy, and I can access the site just fine. On this occasion I had to access the site and log in through a proxy in order to post this message. I still get the "400 Bad Request" message when I try it in the usual way without a proxy, but as you see, when I use a proxy, I can browse and post to the site just fine.

    Is my IP being blocked or something? Do you think I've got an error with my browser or network settings? I could really use some help with this! Thank you. smile

    Oh, I will definitely post them. I didn't use all freesound sound effects. I used some from sound effects such as the Designer sound effects, Dynamic range, Extreme impact, and Sony sound effects libraries.

    I redesigned all the sound for this trailer except for the music, which is RJD2 - Smoke and Mirrors. Any feedback/criticism is much appreciated! Thanks.

    Hi there,

    I'm after specific audience reactions from a variety of people, male and female, any sort of voice. I'll be layering them together for a very silly audioskit.

    START
    ---
    AUDIENCE MEMBERS
    HE-LEN SHINE! HE-LEN SHINE! HE-LEN SHINE! HE-LEN SHINE! [trailing off on the last one] HE-LEN SHINE!

    HOST
    [loudly, over the audience excitement] Please settle down, settle down.

    PIANO MAN
    [to Host] Um, Helen's not coming. Sorry, man.

    AUDIENCE MEMBERS
    [ad-lib upset, disappointment]

    HOST
    Not *coming*?

    PIANO MAN
    Yeah. Her agent says she's in Norway reading from "Virtuoso Of The Chartreuse Justification".

    HOST [CONT.]
    Okay. Well. Apparently we had a bit of a scheduling mix-up. [clears throat] Anyway. That's it for tonight -

    AUDIENCE MEMBERS
    [ad-lib angry shouts]

    ANDREW
    I want my money back!

    AUDIENCE MEMBERS
    [ad-lib agreement with Andrew]

    HOST
    [quickly] Um, wait - wait - listen, I can offer you an audio recording of Helen's third appearance on this stage. Okay? Okay? Will that make you guys happy?

    AUDIENCE MEMBERS
    [ad-lib agreement with this plan, settle down]

    [the audio recording of Helen's third appearance is amazing]

    AUDIENCE MEMBERS
    [ad-lib excitement over Helen's amazing performance]
    ---
    END

    I'm hoping for lots of participants. Thanks so much for your help, I really appreciate it!

    I thought your song was really good! I'm working on creating something myself (not a song exactly, but a track with some music in it), and your song has given me some really useful ideas. I liked the way you structured it, I thought the beginning, middle and end were nicely done, and the transitions were clean and well considered.

    Nice work. smile
