I am doing a research roject and am looking for historical sound recordings of famous events. Preferably high quality and preferably free.
1. Announcement of the fall of the Berlin Wall
2. Speeches by Pope pious XII
3. Hitler's speeches.
Good wallas are friggin hard to find. Especially of any quality. Anyway I am really looking for some good people backrounds (in streets and restaurants mostly) in languages other than English
Specifically I'm looking for
But it could be cool to start a whole collection of languages...
Nevermind, hacked it with some VSTs.
I'll upload it later!
Hi all of Freesound makers and users,
Maybe some of you remember my latest post at this forum http://www.freesound.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=19391 where I introduced my "Breakin' Bars" and "I Ching" projects which are completely made of Freesounds.
I these projects, I used a lot of loops, but I used them in a quite different and more open way, breaking them into a large range of rhythmical variations.
I would be interested to know if you feel - when listening to this music - that this sounds interesting to you, or if you think it makes less sense (see poll questions).
To give you a bit of background for this kind of musical design, you may also read the below statement about "Freesound Music" that I'm using to introduce Freesound Music performances to the public:
+++ when sounds meet - just as people +++
Freesound Music happens when sounds meet - just as people. People give each sound its own personality. It holds their experiences, love, understandings and learnings, and many other feelings and impressions. When sounds meet, all those people’s minds mash-up in a fireworks of a new musical adventure.
So what is so special about Freesound Music? First of all, Freesound is a long-standing label for a large community of sound creators that freely share their sounds under a Creative Commons license. All sounds of Freesound Music are generated by this creative community. Secondly, the sounds meet in a free fashion based on “non-scheduled” grooves.
Scheduled sound meetings are usually organized by 4/4 bar grooves. These meetings are great, well-known, and very, very effective. However, to allow a broader range of sound experiences to meet, other groove methods seem more suitable, with roots in ancient Indian music, Flamenco, 20th century music, and many other sources.
With a flexible, non-scheduled groove, well-known “Band” sounds that, for example, originate from drum instruments can now meet with quite experimental “Bend” sounds that may form a harsh melody, accompanied by a very soft and melancholic spectral sound, drifting a bit crazy while meeting some light sound sparkles on its way - or any other way around.
To experience this new freedom of sound meetings, passionate listeners and music makers are required to meet each other as well! What about a Freesound Music meeting at (freesound.ning.com, freesound.org, myspace.com/squarefreemusic, youtube.com/FreesoundMusic, cm-gallery.com)?
Thanks a lot for taking your time!
Looking for that classic "you're outta luck" descending 3-4 note trumpet/trombone accent.
well, i love the T-shirt and i want to buy it...but it does not ship to india...is there a way around it?
you can download the part I'm talking about from here: memoryofamelody.com/samples/socold.wav
maybe one of you audio experts might know of a way to EQ out everything except the scratch. I know that part can't be completely isolated but anything would help. it'd be much nicer if you know of a way to duplicate just the scratch though
i see your point, i guess what i have in my head might not be the context you are thinking, I wanted it to have a real emphasis on the spanish sound, spoken with an unemotional normal voice but slightly slower so none spanish speaking people can easily pick up what is being said, almost like how someone would speak in a regular conversation.
at 4.34-4.36 is kind of how i would like it to sound..more conversational but with that upswing at the end
hope this helps and thanks in advance
If you listen to the song "So Cold" by Breaking Benjamin it's used as a fill into the verse. You can hear it at 0:09 here: youtube.com/watch?v=rTiGlNDnOtE (it crescendos into the verse)
I'm trying to duplicate this scratch, so any help from you guitarists or DJ's would be appreciated. it maybe be a guitar scratch, but I've heard very similar vinyl scratches.
Thank you to the members of the freesound project. I recently used samples from this site on a new composition that I posted on macjams.com.
It's not for the light hearted.
The inspiration came when I read Luke 16:19 (it's in the New Testament). The story of Lazarus and the Rich Man. It's a horrifying description of hell that I find extremely frightening.
I used a ton of samples from freesound.org (thanks bud and smokeyvw for telling me about it). I used a bunch of kid sounds, even though I don't think there'll be too many kids on the Water Slide on the Lake of Fire!
Here's the link to the song:
And here are the links to the sounds I used:
Thanks again - this is a very useful source of sounds that I plan to use more often!
Try the last minute of this ... http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=26719
what about this one -> http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=72258 ?
I know, it is in 8 bit, but maybe you find it usefull for your Hardtechno (Hardcore?) .
here is a articule about the sanyo diply talk .
www.i4u.com/article12637.html - 25k -
i visita page that is mention of the sanyo diplitalk voice recorder with 8 gb of memory.
do you kno about this product?, or how quality is build in?.
i know that this digital recorder is only in Japan but i don't rely in the sanyo products, can you have some idea about this product?.
I've gotten some killer sounding bass drum, and snare sounds by layering them. In fact I do that a lot. Nothing wrong with that.
But you're cool, tell us the correct procedure please.... :lol:
OOH, I got it.
I use Firefox, but similar settings may be in IE. Go to Tools> Options> Applications. then you can specify what you want Firefox to do with certain types of files. I changed the option to save file. Now all is good.
Same problem I am having. The download link is there, but the clip is then played in a browser window with a quicktime player within. Saving it is not an option unless you upgrade to QT pro.
Great solution for MAC users. Any ideas for PC users?
If you download Audacity ( free ). You will be able to reverse any audio file you like.
You're right, it is a lousy video.
tried everything here and can't come up with either elements i can work with or the orig sound itself. looking for the sound of a firehose spraying out water at full blast. would prefer without fire sound in background. i.e. as clean as poss. some crowd sound would probably be ok. this is for a multi channel video art installation. if someone has some good leads i would appreciate it. i tried.
