    I'm looking for a way to manipulate a dog growl to make it sound more vicious. Does anybody have any ideas? The sound byte sounds close to this sample http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=24965 .

    So far I've tried changing pitch and speed and also filtering... however, I might not have the best knowledge to know how to fiddle with them. I also have this interesting dark dog growl that I might overlay with the bark sound to make it sound more vicious... but I'm curious about what other ideas are out there or if there's a good recipe to make something sound very dangerous.

    Between 1 and 2 for me. I like 1 better, but scaling and 2-color / 3-color versions can be important when it comes to other media (particularly print and screen-prints). I chose 1 even though it probably doesn't scale as well as 2. The elegance won over for me.

    Would be interesting to see a 2-color variant of 1...

    Bram, I was there Friday and Saturday September 19 and 20. Our names were indeed up on the wall.

    Talked to one of the guys of the Klankspeeltuin and was shown the 'insides' of the setup. The Omni is in fact a giant (I think midi) drum pad interface to Native Instruments Battery running on an OS X platform. Incredibly fast response when you touch the pads. Better and more acurate then an MPD16 hooked up to a PC.

    A girl I talked to was just finishing a session with some kids from a school who spent time there the afternoon Friday. One of the things she had the kids do was to have part of the group make sounds with the Omni while the other part listens and tells about what they think of when they hear the sounds.

    I couldn't help introducing the Freesound initiative to the people of Gonzo Magazine (http://www.gonzocircus.com) whom I met at the festival the week before.

    In all a nice experience and nice people.

    --Peter

    I bet quite a lot people here (not me!) can design a logo-sound cooler than (say) the start-up windows sound. A contest and later a poll could be done, and the winner given... a shirt? (surely Brian Eno got more than this for the windows sound!)

    smart idea, if it's a very short sound. imho it's correct to recognize Freesound with our eyes AND ears. a weekly/monthly rotation between selected sounds could work too.

    customizing is agreeable: in Renderosity.com each user can change the color palette and save it in the user profile, then the site will appears with the chosen colors. I find it useful expecially for the background color, many like it dark

    I liked both 1 and 6, but I found 6 a little more difficult to read than 1. Logo 1 was clear, easy to read, good looking, and dynamic.

    Not only that, but freesound stands for ALL kinds of sounds.
    Using a sonic logo will -no matter what- only be one kind of sound and not represent the sonic variety of freesound's database.

    And yet, what should Nightingale designers do with the freesound sonic logo? I for one hate sound in web pages... smile

    dobroide's idea is not as feasible as it sounds

    practically speaking, how would one go about it?

    This apparently is spam. I don't know why anybody would spam this (hacking attempt perhaps?), but Google and Copyscape say it is anyway. Examples: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] and many more.

    Well, beyond the fact of our sounds being used (or not) at this “happy-new-ear” festival, I feel very happy at the invitation they made to “freesound”…and the fact we respond to them with our work.
    I (with my dad) wanted to attend the festival, but was not possible. Next Year…well be there for sure.
    I agree with juskiddink idea, let us spread this experience…I will do it with my schoolmates, friends…and who or wherever if fits.
    Thank you “Freesound” and “happy-new-Ear” festival…you make ME, very happy and willing to discover new experiences.

    Hey guys,

    sadly enough I wasn't able to go myself, nor did I find someone to go make some good pictures, but...

    In the end the guys from klankspeeltuin used the 8 packs present in ONE instrument setup, gathering the most interesting sounds from each pack.
    They said that for young kids, the sounds weren't varied enough, so that seemed a good solution.

    The room -supposedly- had the credits written on a paper somewhere, again a pity I wasn't there sad

    Thanks again for the submissions!!!

    I don't know this machine, but I'd say an outward position could be useful for recording a conversation between two people. One mic pointing to one speaker, the other at the other. Then in post-production, these two should be mixed to a mono track, alternating between the two mics depending on who speaks.

    That might be a useful technique if the two capsules were 180 degrees apart, but the D50 "outward" position puts the capsules at (just about) the same angle as XY. It's effectively just a non-coincident version of XY, but without the separation required for, say, ORTF. So it's not useful for any standard stereo recording technique, and it invites phasing problems unless used with great care.

    I still think it's a great little recorder, but the movable capsules feature is not one of the things that makes it great (and, in fact, it can burn you if one of them gets inadvertently moved out of position).

    Just a thought, but are you really saying that none of the 147 results are suitable from the results you get if you type "church bell" into the search link on the left of your screen?

    You need an incredibly loud sound to deter dogs. I hate dogs, and I got one of these in the hope of feeping the filthy critters away from me. They are only effective from a range of where a baseball bat would be useful. More effective indoors. You PC just won't cut it

    I need some Old West Saloon Piano Music. It doesn't have to be an actual recognizable song, just the feeling of the music. Think "ragtime". If you want to be REALLY awesome, play/find it in a key that makes it sound spooky. This will be used in a Non-Profit haunted house in October.

    Thanks!
