    Thanks for doing this, it is a very clear recording.

    No problem. You will need a rimshot or drumstick on drumstick about 0.2s after my last tap.

    I have the Hitler speech plus a few soundbites from John Lennon (interview about LSD amongst other things).

    One of the best resources can be found here: http://hq.andrewshuttleworth.com/hq/2005/01/famous_speech_a.html

    I checked out the link suggested by chipfork

    http://www.archive.org/details/Winston_Churchill

    That has tons of historical recordings and they seem to be in the public domain smile

    Should be a WIN there?

    This is a question really, rather than a useful response, but this seems a pertinent place for it.
    Famous speeches must be common as muck if one's prepared to rip them from the TV or DVD etc., but I assume that one or another media company owns or licences the copyright. When does the copyright run out? Do we have to wait 50 years or something before we are free to play with them legally? Since modern reproduction techniques vastly outperform the quality of most of the originals, and any current copies are Nth generations away from the original, unless tracks are watermarked, who is to say what has been reproduced from where and who actually owns it?

    Not trying to stir up trouble Acebandge, but genuinely interested. I like the idea of history being totally in the public domain, but modern life seems to favour everything being somebody's, or some corporation's, property.

    I have this project due in a couple weeks which requires six shots fired in rapid succession from a handgun, preferably a .22 caliber revolver. Anybody know where to find one?

    Im a little new to this site, but I have some recordings of the Apollo moon landing, John Glenn "One small step....", "Houston we have a problem", etc... They are in the original quality which was alittle scratch for the time.

    Im trying to learn how to upload here.

    Hey there,

    I wanted to share and discuss something here with you. I wrote down some thoughts and built a rough prototype of an idea around field recording and geo-tagging. This is heavily inspired by "soundmaps" such as the one here at freesound, that's why I consider this posting "on topic" smile

    The idea was also triggered by the capability of the FiRe (by Audiofile Engineering) Field Recording iPhone application, which lets you save geo tags with your recordings (apparently you can't actually use the data yet, but it's a first step). With FiRe, you can also save markers, either manually or every N seconds. So I was thinking: wouldn't it be a great addition to field recordings with shifting if geo location data would be saved with every marker that is being created over time?

    http://www.precious-forever.com/2009/05/21/location-based-timeline/

    What do you think? Are there any examples like this out there?

    Best,
    Christophe

    No pc is too old! (even oldies control MIDI!) But,

    If you don't want a mac then a Sony Vaio would be a good buy, or even a budget Acer that supports 4G SoDimm probably a built in Nvidia Card (not like the desktop beasts but still a nice video card) The video card will handle most of cubase's menu ram matters a little but its your GPU the most, Also if you load windows you can use readyboost and give yourself an extra 4 gigs of virtual cache memory, And then disable hibernate, set your cache paging file size, and set your pc to use more RAM for foreground programs, I used a DELL Inspiron for a while with 2 G of ram max and an intel core duo 2.4 (a ittle slow but settings matter alot). Just make sure you can use the pc like it's nicely handled, and stuff.... you should be okay,

    Mad Tracker for Tracking,
    Audacity for Arranging and simple uses.

    Mad tracker and Audacity both support the use of VST.

    Never mind but thanks for looking anyway, does any body else have any clips from speeches? doesnt matter what language but ideally in english, also it would be good if it could be kind of energetic and uplifting, like a speech made before a war or someting would be good.

    Thanks in advance
