    Pitch shifting one of these might work

    Hello, I am new to the website and did searches under war, battle, gunfire, bombing (and the like) before posting this, but I'm not finding the right fit. I am looking to make an approximately 20-30 seconds long intro to a Patriotic themed mix of music that is all sorts of battle ground action. Machine guns, mortars, planes, perhaps even radio comm in the backround.

    Dude, you've got a warped idea of patriotism. Killing people, even a lot of people, does not make someone a patriot.

    Maybe you could join the military, ship out to Iraq, and get some good recordings of people getting killed?

    Thank you. This site is a very valuable resource.

    I see what you're saying.

    What's happening is the sample is at a certain bpm for a certain number of measures, but there's a bit on the end that's not part of the loop. For example, a 4 measure beat at 120bpm should play for 8 seconds, but the sample might be 9 or 10 seconds long. I do this with some of my samples. This sample loops perfectly, while this sample has a bit of extra on the end.

    The best way to fix this is to do the math and figure out how long the sample should be, and then cut off whatever isn't needed.

    Also, looping the sound with the Freesound player isn't exactly perfect; you will always have the looping problem using the Freesound player. I don't know exactly how you're looping the beats, but it's better to use a program like Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net) to loop them.

    But if I wanted to use a loop that was 162bpm, I would open up LMMS (http://lmms.sourceforge.net/), set the bpm for the project to 162, put the sample in for however many measures the sample is, and loop that. It works all the time (assuming you have the right bpm). I could show you if you would rather use that method.

    I'll need more information on how you're looping the sample. Also, which samples you're looping would be helpful information as well.

    Hey, as I might have mentioned in a prior post, I'm working on an Unreal Tournament mod. For some stupid reason I'm trying to be a one man development team XD!! Lots of work but its all fun.

    Anyways I have about 3 years of mixing and editing experience in FL studio. Its meant for making music but I find its also a great host for making sound effects. It has VST synthesizers and effects you can play around with. I've been experimenting by mixing some drum samples to make gun sound effects. I think it sounds ok but I was wondering if you guys can offer some tips and tricks. Maybe some good programs, VST's, effect plug-ins, or stuff like that. Any help is appreciated.

    I uploaded the sound I made with drums but its awaiting moderation. I'll post the link when its up smile.

    not sure what you mean by staggered or displaced. But are you sure youre using the right bpm's?

    When i loop my sample fx a drumloop the loop is not a "continuous" beat, everytime the time has elapsed for a fx a beat which last 3 seconds, their is a little break.. Let me spell it out: If I start my metronome together with the beat it will not fit in, even if I am using the right bmp's smile

    Well, it seems, that the only solution will be an external batterypack, as I believe it is pretty hard to get the actual battery for it.

    Hello freesound!

    Im a totally new user and I was very happy when i found this website, cause I think it's funny to "play" with all these great samples!

    Im a drummer and I think it could be fun to play-along with these samples, and to do that i need to loop the "songs" or the beats.. I have downloaded some differences samples, but when i loop the sounds the beat is staggered/displaced?

    How do I avoid that?

    Thanks!

    Thanks inchadney. The problem is I am not searching because my battery's gone out, but I bought a unit at an estate sale and, while I have the recharger/DC unit, the actual battery, casing and all, was not part of the purchase. I need the latter before I can create an alternate solution, I believe.

    I've been using Freesound for a while, and I've run into a few problems:

    1. Sample packs cannot be renamed (and if they can, it's not too obvious).
    2. Line breaks don't show up in sound descriptions like they do in comments.
    3. I can't see which of my sounds are awaiting moderation.

    Hopefully these things can be changed. The last one is not as important, but I don't like being left in the dark when I'm waiting for my sounds to be moderated. Sometimes I wonder if something went wrong during the upload process. Even if I could just see a list of the sounds that are currently awaiting moderation, that would be quite helpful.

    Thank you,

    btw, I can't wait for Nightingale grin

    It seems, that they are not made anymore. I tried to get one myself some time ago. On a forum (http://www.hifi-forum.de/viewthread-29-8563.html) someone gave this solution:

    "First, the battery (6V, 1.5Amp)

    Typeno. = BP-D3
    Sony Partno. = 1-528-334-11 (AEP, EA)
    Sony Partn0. = 1-528-333-11 (US, CND, UK, E, AUS)

    You are right, the batterypack is not supplied any more.
    HOWEVER, most custom batterypacks are just custom on the OUT-side. IN-side they consist of standard AA-, C- or even D-cells. In your case they are NiCD cells I believe, because of the age. In most cases they could just be replaced with modern NiMH cells of the same physical size. The gain will be higher yield of performance. The existing pack runs around 2 hours. If replaced with NiMH expect closer to 3- 3.5 hours.
    So, you should OPEN the old pack in some way. Carefully, because it doesn't live shielded in some battery compartment but is part of the recorders exterior and you don't want scars on your vintage jewel
    If it's clearly seen the pack is made by 2 halves, just glued together, I usually put it in a wise and SQUEEZE it. The plastic will snap open along the glued edges in some weaker places and the rest can be done carefully by hand with a knife and a broad screwdriver.
    If it's not made out by 2 halves, but looks moulded into one piece, it's going to be harder. Cutting/sawing in the only way and that's going to leave scars. Still, you must open it.
    Inside you'll find the cells, connected in series. 5 of them, most likely (5 x 1,2V = 6V). Measure length and diameter and try to find what's available within measurements. If you have to choose smaller cells, don't worry. They have at least the same capacity as the originals. The new cells should be bought with metal strips already at each end for easy soldering. Before final re-assembly/glueing, try to just keep things in place by wrapping a couple of rubber-bands around the pack. Does it charge? does it run for at least a couple of hours on a charge? If so, it's time to do the final re-assembly."

    A different solution might be an extrenal battery pack.

    Let us know, how you get on.

    Hello!
    I found video on youtube and I fell in love with the snare. Does anyone know how to make or does anyone have a sample like this in their collection? Thanks.
