I'm mixing a CD and I want to use sounds from the Freesound Project. My question is what should I have to print in the CD cover to comply legally with the CC license. Is there a standard phrase to put on the cover (like "all rights reserved" and so on)?
This CD will be sold in Argentina, so I also want to know if the license covers all the countries. Your answer will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Try the Zoom or something similar for a mic.
You can take it anywhere and drop the files directly onto your hard drive.
And... I suggest getting your master cut together before you put the vocal on it.
One other thing... there is a device called a Peak Limiter.
Not the regular limiter/compressor you'll use as you reach the final stages of beefing up your mixdown.
The Peak Limiter attenuates the peaks of your mixdown to a range of your choosing and, instead of having a zig-zaggy waveform peaking up in the 0dB range, it will be more of a rectangular block and much lower... so that, when you normalize the wav, it will totally max out and be loud and punchy as all heck.
There's a shareware version of one out there...
Careful with it though... don't do anything too fast.
You will accomplish more by taking your time through each step.
And remember that a good mixdown is the first step. The more time you spend with it, the less you will spend with compression and EQing as you move onto the mastering stage.
(You're going to love me for this one day.)
Try the Fruity Loops Studio sequencer and a pair of Audio Technica monitoring headphones
-- and/or the Tascam monitoring satellite system. You need the headphones. Plain stereo speakers are tweaked for EQ and compression, like FM radio... and you will jack up your work by trying to use them to monitor.
Fruity Loops has a wave editor in it (which you will need) and can use until you get the feel of the process and can move onto a more advanced editor, like Adobe or Cool Edit (if you can find one).
You need to learn about compression... both simple soft compression, which is good for mixdowns ....and multiband, which is a bit more complex but necessary in the process. Compression is a sort of rapidfire cyclical EQing that settles your mix into a somewhat universal comfort zone for playback.
If you can't grasp it at first, try the presets until you do.
Use a couple of reference CDs of a band that you love to check your work. Not too many... all music is different and you can really mess yourself up by trying to compare your own stuff to every song you ever liked. Forget about those gadgets that automatically adjust your EQing to a certain song. They are downright worthless.
Fruity loops also comes with hi/lo pass filters which you will need to saddle each instrument with in the mix. Hi pass your kick drums from 50-80 Hz .... your snare at 125 ... your cymbals at about 200, give or take. Toms move with bass at about 100 Hz. (Some prefer 80 Hz for bass ...depends on what you are doing.)
FL also comes with parametric EQ. Learn to use the notch EQ. There are trick frequencies all over the spectrum but worry, mostly about the bass at 125 and 250. Notch them out as it suits your song.
Remember that people are going to use the bass/loudness button or EQ presets on their playback device. Standard bass boost is at about 80 Hz so, if you slap a boost at the end of your main mix, you can hear how it will sound when the button is pressed.
Center your samples (remove DC offset) on your finals, whether they be individual waves or a complete mixdown or master. (You'll do it more than once.)
Fruity has a gadget called the Soundgoodizer. This is what gives you that glossy FM sound heard on nearly all current commercial releases. There are other types, like the BBE Sonic Maximizer & Izotope. I prefer Izotope because it has so many settings that you can actually use it in layers throughout the mix/master process.
Render everything from Fruity at 44kHz/32bit. That's as high as you can go with Fruity but I'll tell you what... if you do it right.... you can make a recording with Fruity Loops that is not only marketable, but competitive.
If you need any help... just email me from that page.
Audio Technica. Even the cheap ones are accurate.
hey guys ive been tryin and tryin over and over to create a dj shoutout for me

You can also use:
to search the Internet Music Archive. There's a lot of jazz/swing public domain music there.
I guess the header says it all :wink:
I'm looking for radio garble in German... I've already found it in English which was absolutely great but need some in German too.
Thanks in advance
I'm looking for a 70s style voiceover 'inspired' by this style:
I am finalizing the script - probably 6-10 sentences.
I intend to enter the video in a contest & would be willing to pay some money or donate some to freesound if I were to win.
Anyone think they could do something like the link?
Hi I'm new too (piggy backing on this post instead of making a new one)
Mostly here to look for foley samples for video, I think.
Might use a couple for bed tracks in video too.
This green search engine is a great idea and I never knew a click gets a penny!
I'm just wondering if you have used some of the sounds you download in this site and mix the sounds with your youtube videos, if so post the links of the videos you used with the sound effects!
Can anyone help me with a sound that work for someone being stuffed -- against her will -- into a trunk? Not killed -- she survives.
... 20's swing/jazz song preferably copywrite free and with vocals of some sort..
In the UK, the term of copyright in a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work is limited to the life of the author plus 70 years, while the term of copyright in a sound recording is limited to 50 years from the date of recording.http://www.openmusicarchive.org/about.php
I just had a new wine-theme game called iVineyards get put in the iTUnes store
Sounds are pivotal in this game
Artists used - zippi1, reinsamba, traveler, benboncan and bristolstories
Thanks sooo much to all of the artists involved.
I need about a 30 second - 2 minute 20's swing/jazz song preferably copywrite free and with vocals of some sort.
I'm using it for a kind of creepy fight scene.
In case anyone has an iPhone/iPod Touch, I published a new app last year on the app store that uses guitar samples that NoiseCollector generously provided on here. I did this basic app for my graduate level 3D UI course at my local university. It just recently broke into the Top 100 Music Apps this week, so that's really cool! (Thanks again NoiseCollector!)
It basically allows you to pick power chords of your choice and strum the device to play the samples. Also can do some cool volume modulating and hammer tap samples. A mildly fun novelty and plenty of fun for playing Smoke of the Water and Iron Man for your coworkers ha ha. Hopefully I'll find time at some point to update it and make it a little more complete. I can't express how nice it was to have quality free samples (and very complete!) to help me on this class project. (And I got an A, yay!)
Anyway, heres the home page if anyone is curious and a link to app in iTunes:
Also available is iStrum Unplugged, a similar app using acoustic chord samples provided by SpeedY, another FreeFound'er!
hello there, i am searching for a voice pack containing all the numbers from 0 to 36 plus two words black and red pronounced by a female if possible. i found a lot of packs containing numbers but i need the same voice to say the red and black frases. As you may guessed it is for a roulette game. if anyone know where to find such pack or is willing to record one i would be very grateful.
Sorry my suggestions didn't help.
Hmm.. frustating isn't it!
Here are my ideas for further enquiry.
The error message came from a "nginx/0.5.33" server. Perhaps freesound admin could confirm if they use nginx. I suspect not, which means the page request is failing before it even gets to freesound. i.e the problem isn't at the freesound server. (The error page you uploaded cetainly doesn't look like a friendly freesound error page.)
I don't know anything about the working/configuration of safari & macs I'm afraid, but I still suspect the problem might lie with your ISP.
