    Is it the average length of sounds on here?

    Google translated it to 2.71828183 minutes but googling that gets dangerous.

    please take the "exactly" with a grain of salt.... I thougt you were trying to guss why exactly that length.
    the length probably doesn't make sense at any samplerate.
    it's just a special number.

    163.0969098 * 44100 = 7192573.7221800 ~ 7 192 574

    Or I am miscalculating something?

    I agree, I can hear some of the stuff going on too, but what samples should I start with? I've tried a couple drum beats, but nothing comes out like these.

    Thing is that most drumloops are well-layered, I mean it's not just bassdrum and snare, but also different sub-sounds like sub-bass, noise, rustling and so on, so just try mixing up different sounds and working with pan and stereo imaging and you'll get what you want.

    Anybody have any insight on how these type of samples can be made?

    I hear Dblue Glitch VST effect in these samples. Simply try randomizing.

    There were discussions here about the H2 before & some people like it & some people can't stand it. The Edirol though? I'm finally, finally ready to buy a digital recorder and would love to read some opinions on this too!

    I want something pocketsized or close to it, and an extremely discreet microphone. For months I have been wanting to record my commute to work every day, some of the conversations on the bus are amazing. Also, the elevator at work has begun making a squeaking noise. And the Romanian accordion player has been walking slowly through the neighborhood again. And the lottery ticket woman in the metro has a very loud, mournful voice when she calls out to the crowd bustling past, it is as if she's selling a lucky chance for deep sadness and loss.

    Hello, I really love this sample pack here: http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/packsViewSingle.php?id=819

    I've been playing a lot with glitchy VSTs (lots of Darkware stuff/Glitch VST) but haven't been able to get anything like the samples from this pack. I'm guessing you start with a breakcore beat, with maybe some ambient stuff - then glitch out someway to create the sample? Anybody have any insight on how these type of samples can be made?

    Awesome flute sound, really relaxing, I like the bells in the background, and good stereo mixing. This would actually be very good for a real time strategy game smile A+

    Used Hammerklavier's Sub D Blues to produce this short spot for a non commercial radio station on a VO board I am frequently frequenting. http://www.mikevendetti.com/images/Myspace_Produced.mp3. Thanks HK

    Hi all.

    I'm about to explore the world of field recording, mainly as a resource for my ambient music but also for sharing via this friendly community. I have been looking into the Edirol R-09 and the Zoom H2 vs. Zoom H4.

    Your experince: Which would you choose, are they equal in quality?

    I will not be buying any external microphones to start with.

    Thank you...

    I'm after a new set of stereo mics for location recording. Has anyone tried the SE Electronics SE1A stereo pair and is there a suitable windshield I could get for them? Any other recommendations would be appreciated also.

    Cheers in advance.

    I have tried everything that you suggested, and still can't get the files, I can listen to them, but if I click the download button it opens in another window and plays the sound in quicktime. I tried righclicking as suggested, but the only thing it will let me save is the image and not the sound. I've tried in firefox (my preferred browser) and IE7, they both do the same thing. Any suggestions?
