I don't know! It just did that-there!! It's so!! WTF!! It tells me to install hardware, when what I need is the software!! confusing and strange!!
Like Xerox or Qtip, it has become more than a brand name... too many people to sue I suppose. Even I realized I have used it and can't remember where I got it from. See here:
This also happened with some sounds on here that I was saving under names that made sense in my folder system of sounds before the autonaming started on here long ago. Once the file names were changed I was unable to indentify lots of sounds so if anyone hears one I missed atribution on, just let me know and Ill update my song credits.
Warning: that song has some seriously offensive lyrics, I didn't write them or sing them. Very interesting story though. The wikipedia article even has the sample posted so they will be our canary.
They can sue me, I can file chapter 7 again now.
So please tell us about your project if you can.
My particular application would be for use in a small group composition I am recording on behalf of (another, retired) composer as part of a "demo" of his compositions, possibly to play for performance ensembles that may approached about performing the composer's work.
That's the project I'm working on - I posted this description in my first post.
Coming from a San Franciscan, I'll take neo-con as a compliment. And if I was a neo-con what would that possibly have to do with anything anyway? Oh well, my post was not meant to insult anyone and I surely did not mean to trivialize anyone's contributions. I was proud of the effort and time I spent uploading files and I am only human so I was a little disapointed that the total time of samples knocked my name off the marquee. I may not be super rich making noises but I am offically a professional musician as of last month because I sold a song for $100. No shit...
So the stupid ranking and this thread have nothing to do with any potential discontinuation of the production of sounds for this site, it has to do with the next stage of my life which is making some music with all the sounds I have collected. Trying not to fall into a flamewar piss fit with LS over religion, polictics or any other crap that impededs human evolution. But since you opened pandora's box, let the record reflect the following:
40% of my money is taken from me while someone who cannot perform as well as I can in the capitalism game pays 20%, that is not fair. You cannot argue that point, why should someone who is better at it than I am pay 50%? As I much as I detest the rich, they should not be penalized for success. What about equality? That makes me a neo con?
I don't believe in religion so you can't paint me in that box of bible thumpers. I could care less how many fetuses are flushed down the toilet, so the pro-life label won't fit me. I am starting to think there is no way to win a war in the middle east (without nukes) so I may even agreee that our troops should come home. My guns work for me, you don't have to own one. Immigrants should become citizens or leave, most countries work that way. Don Imus is retarded, etc... whatever. I shouldn't even have to defend myself about the stupid neo con thing and I apologize for responding at all. I'm not even mad about it anyway and I should have stopped typing two paragraphs ago. Hell, I'll just stop this now and start a new one.
Thanks for the compliments and the jabs, it's all part of life, as we all. Everyone who even contributes one sound on here is just as important as Jovica or whomever has the highest bitrate, or most expensive binaural helmet microphone or who has the latest most expensive digital audio workstation. We can all stand around the locker room measuring each other's penises or we can put our clothes on and stop hanging out naked in a smelly room while old perverted teachers stare at us showering. And if anyone is a female or doesn't have a penis, no offense meant with that metaphorical image. Or was it symbolism? I forget...
Anyway, again, I was not attacking anyone and it's only human nature to want recognition for hard work. I think I have matured since I first signed up here and that is a good thing. Happy Friday the 13th or whatever day it is where you are.
Have you tried making one yourself? Might not be the real thing but if you have the theatre put the right lights in, whos goin to see.
As you know about as much about my rational as I know about your project I suggest you don't discredit that either.
Again, my original comment was not helpful and perhaps even discrediting, although it wasn't meant as such . If anything it could be accused of being a half assed comment that did not add much to your thread. If it is an apology for this you seek then I offer it to you now.
The only reason I am actually leaving that comment there is because I do not selfcensor my posts, a funny irony perhaps.
So please tell us about your project if you can.
WTF!!! what you do before this occur? hock:
When I click the volume icon on my status bar, the slider doesn't come up! When I double click the volume icon, I see this:
These are in my control panel=sounds and audio devices properties:
What is going on!?
I'm kinda after the beep you hear from police scanners sometimes. Dunno what they do but I need them if anyone can record some then I'd be glad.
I am flabberghasted that there have been no major lawsuits yet.
In the video the narrator says that the man who started The Winstons didn't file any law suits and didn't take any action against companies like Zero-G Limited. I'm sure if the original members won a case against people who violated the copyright they'd be millionaires. Sadly when I Google searched "The Winstons" I only found a 1 paragraph Wikipedia entry, not hardly the amount of credit they deserve.
zero G - what prats.
Bless the Winstons and James Brown etc for not goin after anyone with lawsuits... did they?
I think I missed this period of time. Where did I come?
Given your contention that this is not a forum for political debate, I have to wonder why you felt compelled to post at all.
Your self-imposed restriction is your own choice, but you chose to publicly discuss this choice and your rationale (if in fact it can be called that) in such a way as to try to discredit my request and ultimately invalidate the project I am working on without regard for the facts or context. That is neither helpful nor constructive behavior - in fact, it is a form of politically-based and -motivated public appeal for censorship - and so was your reply.
right, I suppose films like this are made partly just to get people to talk about that, get opinions out and stuff I guess.
Awesome. I'll watch the vid, but I'm having some troubles with my computer's audio... Grrr...
It doesn't influence me at all really. I'm actually kind of glad that I'm not on the list anymore.
I came across this video on YouTube when researching the infamous "Amen Break".
Bram you might like this, near the end the recording speaks about how the 6 second "Amen Break" has been oversampled and misused by people who don't give the original creators credit. It tells about a company in the UK called "Zero-G Limited" and how they copyrighted the infamous break in 2002, 33 years after it was originally recorded and copyrighted by the band "The Winstons" in 1969. This break has actually been submitted into the sample banks here at Freesound which made me wonder if that is remotely legal.
Although the video is long, I suggest that you watch all of it since it emphasizes more than just the history of a drum beat, it emphasizes the todays problem of digital sampling and it wide misuse.
This is the loop submitted to Freesound sampled from the song "Amen Brother" by The Winstons.
Like I said, *I* wouldn't use a bullroarer. I think your right that I could've done without the "I dont know about you".
yet this is a topic about a sample, not a forum for political debate for which there are plenty of other places on this big wide internet.
