    Everything looks absolutely amazing! I am really looking forward to this!

    My only request is that the player loops sounds seamlessly. When looping a sound like a breakbeat or something using the current player, there is a noticeable gap between playbacks. It's not like it's a bug or anything, but it would certainly be a very helpful feature. I don't know how difficult that is to do with flash. I know flash has some problems with looping sounds.

    btw, the player worked just fine in Google Chrome 1.0 on Windows Vista Home.

    It looked like you were having trouble getting the image to show. This should save a few seconds for the people that don't want to put the url in the address box.

    On a keyboard it' a bit more complicated but much easier to play chords and scales and no blisters! so it's trade off. I was thinking of inventing a keyboard without the black keys as they are a pain in the ass to hit sometimes because they are shorter and raised up higher. That way you could just take that pattern technique on the guitar and transfer it to the keyboard and you could play about anything out there with a decent synth.

    Something like that exists already, the Janko keyboard. Play a major chord on that device, no matter which one, they all have the same fingering. (compare C-E-G and D-F#-A, the relative distances between the keys are the same; on traditional keyboards it'll be different)

    Hi All,

    I'm currently in fourth place and there are 30 minutes left to vote. I appreciate your support. See the original message for a recap of my programming contest entry with sounds from freesound. If you haven't voted for my entry yet or know anyone else that can vote for my entry in these 30 minutes that are left, I'd be greatly appreciative! Thanks again!

    Same problem on FF 3.0.4, Mac OS X. Safari works fine.

    Many thanks for all of the comments! I just placed an order on the LS-10, expect to receive it later this week.

    The PCM-D50 seems to have many advantages, but the simple fact that the LS-10 is so very portable sealed the deal. I can really keep it with me almost all the time, which would be an unrealistic plan with the larger units. To me it makes sense to to own one compact device I can take anywhere and possibly later get some bulkier equipment for some better quality recordings.

    Also, at my school we have a Fostex FR2-LE, Sennheiser MKH 416 shotgun and a Schoeps CCM8 figure-8 mic, so if I really need a higher quality recording than what the LS-10 offers I can do it with these...

    Now I'm interested in seeing how well the LS-10 stock windshields fare, or do I need to buy the WJ1 windjammer or possibly build one myself...

    Save the sounds with the filename that Freesound gave it. This contains the sound ID, the creator and the sound name.

    Hey man yeah reason can be tricky to get decent basslines out of but if you take one bassline that you like and put a very low sub bass from subtractor on it and copy that bassline and on that on eput an edgier bass and then blend the two together you will have a much fatter bass sound try it and let me know. Oh BTW you should really try out Ableton Live instead its a MUCH better DAW than Reason.

    On where the hell I can pursue my education after my National Service.

    I'm in Singapore currently, and am going to serve my national service soon (in about a year, when my current studies finish).

    I mean right now I'm doing a course on Film, and I'm going to be specialising in Sound (243 people read this and said "duh"wink and well, I honestly haven't a clue where to go after that.

    My ideal is to eventually become a Rock Musician, so I'm practicing Bass guitar now. And I intend to learn about Audio Engineering for CD's and such. I do feel as though I want to get to know the industry from the inside out. Going the star path never really appealed to me, and I'm not that good anyway grin

    So yes. My ideal education involves learning about Audio Engineering, Audio Post Production for the Music/Film Industry, or Music Theory and such.
    My 2 areas to run after these would be Australia and Singapore.

    As someone already said, you only have to learn the sharps or the flats as they are the same in some cases. Also each minor has a corresponding major... C major is A minor E minor is G major, etc... So I think I narrowed it down to learning 7 modes and on a guitar without black keys it's fairly easy to just move the patterns around. Throw in a blues scale. a slightly altered harmonic minor and maybe a pentatonic scale and you can play 95% of all western music you will ever hear. All you have to do is slide the patterns around on the fretboard, well I am a bass player and leaving out the dreaded b and e string jump you have to compensate for... I wanted to devise a tuning that kept the pattern the same up the strings because that one note adjustment on the b string throws off my modal form of playing with the 3 notes on every string as opposed to the traditional way starting on the tonic with your middle finger and only playing two notes on the first string of the major scale and only playing two notes on that b string... I hate non symmetrical patterns when it comes to scales..

    On a keyboard it' a bit more complicated but much easier to play chords and scales and no blisters! so it's trade off. I was thinking of inventing a keyboard without the black keys as they are a pain in the ass to hit sometimes because they are shorter and raised up higher. That way you could just take that pattern technique on the guitar and transfer it to the keyboard and you could play about anything out there with a decent synth.

    Thanks, you sure can use it. I made the music on the east coast and my buddy wrote sang and recorded the lyrics on the west coast. It's released under the creative commons license like the sounds on here. Just give me credit as NoiseCollector to keep it simple and throw in a link. There are 350 other items on there by others and myself released under the same license that can be used for free as long as you give props. Looking forward to see what you do with it.

    Thanks again!

    in RapidEvolution open the piano, in the edit window,
    and look at the field at lower right, close to ok button:

    by default it show single note,
    if you choose major and play a note
    the program will add the major 3rd and the 5th
    thus composing the major chord of any played note.

    with minor you'll have the minor 3rd and the 5th, the minor chord for the played note.

    the tonic will be displayed at lower left.
    notice the double name:
    D#/Eb because
    D# is D half a tone up
    Eb is E half a tone down
    thus D# = Eb

    easier to try than to read! grin
    there is an ear training too! this program is a gem

    Wow, that track you there is amazing. Did you record it? If so, would you mind it being added in a feature film project?

    My head aches!!

    Then it's time to make some noise Art!!

    ....Just keep at it!
    and....(my humble tip)
    What about taking a few piano lessons?
    like just enough to learn the scales(do,re,mi,fa,so,la,ti,do)
    .......and the arpeggios(do,me,so,do)
    I think this would open some doors,
    and it's healthier and happier than asprin.
    :wink:

    To begin with, I would like to express my gratitude for such a good community that will actually respond to ones requests. That is something I see rarely on sound related message board.

    hja, I checked through your hospital trolley sound and it was good, however, is there any chance that you could capture the sound again but by rolling the trolley slower and with lower rattling sound? I could send your some money for it through paypal if you wish.

    Thanks again guys for the very appreciated help.
