    I can think of at least two sources for this but as to the legality...

    The first is "The Grand Prix of Gibraltar" comedy recording by Peter Ustinov. He did this spoof of international racing in the 1960s (including parodies of national stereotypes, actual race drivers, cars, and racing itself) when Riverside and other record companies were releasing audio interviews of racecar drivers and "sounds of racing" albums. This was back when the (real) Grand Prix got more attention than NASCAR does today. It is available on CD, but hard to find. Ustinov claims he recorded it all (including all of the characters, narration, and the voice sound effects, leaving the studio to do a couple of additional sounds) in a day, despite having a severe cold.

    The second is another comedy recording from the 1970s (?) called "Bert and I" recorded by Maine humorist Marshall Dodge. The segment "Which Way to East Vassalboro?" has several voice imitations of a "foreign sportscar" zooming up and down a rural road, changing gears, accelerating, decelerating, and braking. Available on CD, but very hard to find.

    Hey, I have the same problem, but it isnt downloading samples,
    I use firefox and it tries to download the page as a PHP file, just ignore it and click the link again hold Shift + Click.
    I don't know why it does that either.......

    OH Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! your doing it wrong!

    I don't know why though :?

    ...I mean seriously, why would you do it wrong? That's just stupid. Try right click then go save as then go like where to save, then do it. If that's no good then try LEFT CLICK then when download thingy pops up, go save, then yeah.

    but seriously try this, i do this sometimes:

    it might be "cheating" but go to the sound you want, and let the WHOLE SOUND play (obviously not practical for long feild recordings) then go to your temporary internet files, and THERE IS IT!!! So CAREFULLY drag and drop it into Audacity and there. Then DONT FORGET TO SAVE THE FILE cause once it's in Audacity it's deleted from your temporary files.

    I knew he did record the "we will not be held responsible..." voice sample as requested by another forum member, but I couldn't resist using that superb sample in my song.

    This is the original sample: http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=33711

    And here's the song, very dance-ish as someone already anticipated:
    http://xplsv.com/prods/music/sole/mp3/s0le%20-%20Dark%20tech%20%28feat%20r08028%29.mp3

    Copy and paste the whole line...

    (I couldn't manage to make the bbcode work with the song's url, it might be something related with the parenthesis, sorry)

    Thanks to acclivity once again!!

    Like montanabob, I am having prolems. System is a Mac.

    I have tried to download this file:

    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/data/37/sounds/37914__kathol__fog_horn_sample_dry_.wav

    I hit the "download" button and—Safari or Firefox browsers open a new window. When I do a "save as" I get nothing at all.

    If I add .wav the file appears, but—NO SOUND in a 4K file.

    Why do some downloads work and others don't?

    Thanks for the replies, all.

    I really don't know what features I want since I am fully ignorant of the technology and I don't know what features are available. Thus, I will check out some of the suggestions. One thing is for sure, I don't want anything much bigger than an iPod.

    Since the advent of digital I have lightened my photographic load. Don't want to go back. grin

    I have added a pack of some VCR sounds today. Just waiting for them to get moderated.
    Hopefully they can be useful.

    It's already so difficult with one description field... smile the easiest would be a standard way of tagging sounds:

    bpm-150
    bpm-145
    bpm-110
    key-csharp
    key-bflat
    key-a
    loop
    singe-shot

    Perhaps I could put a notice somewhere about some "special" tags people should use if they can. I guess field-recording and processed/unprocessed should be more of them.

    - bram

    A nice solution would be to add optional fields like bpm etc to the submit form and, if filled by the submitter, append appropiate "special" tags automatically. Like a BPM entry that, if filled in with value 120, would automatically add the tag "bpm-120".

    I see in the FAQ that you can use the samples in any derivative work.

    I don't think that's true : shouldn't the derivative work be under the same licence , sampling plus ?

    It's quite hard to manage that, especially when using other people's work in the derivative.

    It is a forum where audio professionals are discussing recording techniques. It is different from such sites like freesound. But audio people need and like samples so it fits well to freesound wink
