    I would be really happy to see lots of sounds in the public domain.
    Kind people will usually credit the authors but when you create a sound mix for example and use 500 sounds for it it's really a mess to credit everyone.
    If you create a game(or even a mod) you have lots of soundmixes using hundrets of sounds and the same with pictures/textures too.
    You can print a book to credit everyone correctly and get a bunch of license .....
    That's why PD is so good. You can really use the sounds in anyway you want.
    For the same reason I started to release lots of my pictures(useful for 3d-game textures) to the public domain at http://www.burningwell.org.

    I hope freesound 2.0 will be there soon ( and every artist will be initially asked if he will release his sounds into the public domain).

    I could only suggest searching for this on ccMixter. Perhaps requesting on their forum too. smile

    I would say it is allowed. Commercial use is all fine, as long as the works (in this case sounds) are not used to advertise for or promotoe anything other than the work you create from it. I read that as you may use it in commercial works (movies, music), but you may not use them for commercials other than those for the work you created. So you may not make a commercial for shoes or cars or anything, but you may use the sounds in a movie trailer or ad for music album, when you use a part of the work (movie, album) containing that sample. I hope that's clear.
    For example, I made a video using freesounds, posted it on Revver, which makes it commercial use (as Revver pays for overlayed ads). I can make a trailer of that video in which you hear the freesounds, that is ok. But I cannot use the video to advertise for anything else.

    That's one part of the Sampling + license. A second part is the line "For any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others the license terms of this work. The best way to do this is with a link to this web page." Just as Bram said, you must attribute the sounds, you can think of it as metadata. When people choose sounds in a computer system, they should on the respective pages see who created the samples (attribution) and how I read it, you must also show the sounds are licensed under Creative Commons Sampling + license.
    If people can choose sounds from a list on paper, it can be done easily by simply format the list as by [creator] and a line at the bottom with the license.

    Again, if you want to be really sure, you should ask a lawyer.

    Matt, I know you are trying to help, but please don't answer threads where you only say you don't know the answer... You're not helping!

    Rob, , I believe that this is probably legal, but you obviously have to -in some way- attribute the original authors, like the license requires you to do. This might be rather difficult in your case, but somne way needs to be found. Perhaps attributing could simple be having a list somewhere (online or offline) with authors of sounds, and when asked refer to this list.

    I do believe this usage does fall under commercial usage (you might not be paid, but the hospital is a commercial entity), so when we change to the new freesound license model (in X months), I think it's best to stay away from any samples with the noncommercial clause. The Sampling+ license is very vague when it comes to commercial usage, ...

    Rob, can I begin by welcoming you to the freesound project. I hope that you enjoy your time here. I also extend my congratulations to you on this project you are doing. It is a very worthwile cause and I hope that it has the outcome that it sets out to. Can I also extend my best wishes to all your pacients, and I am sure that my centiments are echoed across the board.

    ON the specific issue of the samples themselves, I am afrade I am unable to help you as I am neither admin, loyer or moderator, and as such I would strongly erge them to post and respond to this topic, showing the greatest respect to you as possible.
    I hope you are successful in your quest.

    P.S, on a lighter note, are you aware that it says here you have added 2 sounds, however in your profile, there are in fact no files added? Does anyone know if something happened?

    The Marantz pre-amps are one of the noisiest around and from others experiences I think the Marantz is also not the best built / most reliable either.

    The Fostex FR2-LE is a cracking field recorder for the money and the pre amps are pretty quiet. Good display and function buttons well laid out. Downside would be that the internal mics are totally rubbish this is a device to be used with external mics - I mainly use a Rode NT4 stereo mic with it. Downside in that you format the CF card for the recording quality e.g. 44.1Khz 16bit and to change the settings you have to reformat the card.

    Sound wise it will beat both the Edirol and Olympus I make mention of below.

    In the more compact little recording devices area the Sony PCM-D50 I think is universally agreed as the best small form-factor recorder. I have not personally tried one of these so can't give user feel for it, it also sits at the top of the small form factor price range.

    Two recorders I do use as well as the Fostex are:

    Edirol R09-HR. Great little recorder, very intuitive to use recorder, good sound from built in mics, internal mics handle wind noise well, upto 96Khz 24bit recoding. Only a mini jack connector for external mics which means that if you use an external decent mic you will need an XLR to mini jack cable which puts a lot of stress on the recorders connection I find.

    Olympus LS-10. This is a new purchase but so far, great built quality more in the league of the Sony, battery life over three times as long as the Edirol, good sound from internal mics (less coloured than the Edirol), again only a mini jack for external mic, good layout of controls but no live split track function when recording (not a massive problem), suffers from wind noise more than the Edirol (need to make a fluffy for it), comes with 2 gig inbuilt memory and uses SDHC as well, upto 96Khz 24bt recording.

    I don't like the mini jack external mic connection on either of these but I see the selling point of the olympus and edirol to be that they are small form factor digital recorders with good internal mics and use them as such.

    Hope this is some food for thought.

    Please forgive the lengthy post.

    I am a sound-based art composer and lecturer in music technology. I am currently running a project at the LOROS Hospice in the UK (Leicestershire Organisation for the Relief of Suffering) in which I play environmental sound recordings and soundscapes for small groups of patients who are undergoing palliative care at the hospice, and we talk about our listening experiences. The patients find the sessions of great benefit.

    Based on patient feedback, I am currently looking expand the project to provide the patients with a sample resource through which they can select and/or create their own environmental soundscapes that they can listen to in their own time, without having to come along to the organised sessions - this is particularly useful for those patients who are bed ridden. As LOROS is a registered charity the purchasing of licenses for patients to use commercial sound effects and recordings is prohibitive.

    To this end, I have a question for the Freesound forum; does the Freesound license allow me to download Freesound samples (in their unaltered entirety) and place them into a sound library that is accessible for patients at the hospice?

    These sounds will be for the use of LOROS patients on site at the hospice only, a) as creative material in the creation of individual soundscape compositions, and b) as listening material (for group or individual listening sessions); to this end the material may also be used as creative material by myself, to create soundscapes for use in the individual and group listening sessions. Note: I run the sessions as a volunteer and receive no compensation for the sessions that I provide.

    Thanks

    Buy a new pair of them if you know them and know the sound of them.

    Personally I really like my HD600... Something to consider might be whether you actually need them closed backed or not as open back headphones like the HD600 generally have a better sound... or at least a more neutral sound.

    Or maybe you do want something more insulated from the outside world?

    my Sennheiser Hd 25's got nicked on a shoot recently, so i am considering what to replace them with. I use them in the field and in my suite. Was wondering if anyone had others that they thought were superior or whether i should just buy another pair? thanks for the advice.

    Acclivity might have been playing with words with reference to your inability to spell your beloved English language. A spell check would make your posts much easier to read and offer greater clarity to your point when you have one. Did you mean mane or main ?

    Yes, that is something I have called for and still think should happen. I am not the greatest speller in the world.If you want to join my campaign, you are welcome.
    I didn't mean to do with horses, but the other one.

    There's not much on here for quality kick samples, but that'll all change once my sons arrive.

    sorry for not RTFM (or in this case the whole of the last topic) but my favourite is still the old thread's version 1, by a significant amount.
