    Well, I have all I need to hear the preview, but nothing happens after I click PLAY button.
    I have readed FAQ.

    In the past everything was OK. Now PLAY doesn't play.
    Do you have any suggestions?

    6-chan wave files are definitely welcome!
    dts.wav I don't know if they are compatible right now, please do upload one (and let me know which one it is) so we can see if the engine processes it.
    ac3 isn't compatible right now, but freesound 2 (nightingale) will definitely support it.

    What do you mean they are scratchy? can you provide an example? sounds like you may have forgotten the "mixing" part of "mixing and mastering". However, it's impossible to tell what's going on without more info.

    Hello all,

    I do a lot of surround recording with various techniques and would like to know if surround material is welcome here. Possible upload formats would be 6-channel .wav files or preferably DTS.wav or AC3.

    done -> http://www.freesound.org/packsViewSingle.php?id=3744

    it's from a long time that I thought to update my "cartoonist pack", so i uploaded something similar : a selection of the funniest sounds i've synthesized and bounced, edited and remixed for the occasion. (maybe also) useful for games, cartoons, comedy, video and tunes as well... hope kids will have some fun! tongue

    I'm on the search for a similar sound. maybe it could be called a reggae fog horn?
    it's all over the place in music, and mixes. DJ Green Lantern uses it heavily, especially on his GTA IV mix.
    any help would be great.

    I've posted a few seamlessly loopable water sounds, including some nice lapping shore waves:

    this is turning into a chat rather than a forum, but... smile

    freesound 2 will have all help/faq inside a custom wiki with limited editing (i.e. only certain people will be able to edit).
    but that would be a great place for HOWTO's and articles (all the articles are moving to the wiki as well)

    Prob on recording and mixing.
    We could have a freesound wiki with stuff like that. Good idea, yes, no?

    Also the sea is a pretty big thing. I think there's no way you can get its magnitude in one recording. You may wish to play around with closer recordings of splashing waves, distant recordings of waves roaring, very distant recording of just a soupy buzz and stuff like that.
    Especially on 5.1 rigs you should get cool, surfin' results that way.

    Hi jcy,

    jcy
    I really need some "real" sounding wave/sea/ocean and wind samples.

    Maybe you already found what you were looking for, anyway you may be interested in the Iceland collection I just uploaded: lots of sea, water, wind there smile and it's all "real" field-recording:
    http://www.freesound.org/packsViewSingle.php?id=3693

    jcy
    All the ones I find are unfortunately low bitrate, not long enough in length (a loop is often recognisable) or synthetic sounding.

    Please keep in mind that what you play from the site is always compressed (i.e. have a look at the Type info in the sound's info to know the real format). There are a couple of sea takes of about 2 mins. in the above collection... I guess that may be long or short depending on what you are after.
    Kindest regards,
    Lorenzo

    I have a sound file here: http://www.filefactory.com/file/853f1d/n/1d_wav

    In the sound file, there's two things on top of each other: something sounding vaguely like music, and a beep. There's also a short beep at the end, but I do NOT mean that last short beep. I mean the beeping sound that is there during around 80% of the time.

    I'd like to keep only that beeping sound and remove the rest.

    I tried with audacity low and high pass filter as well as noise removal. I could make it a "little bit" better that way, but in fact totally don't succeed.

    Is there a way to keep only the beep, crystal clear, and have all the rest removed?

    How's this...
