    Media Player Classic plays the sound correctly no matter what the settings are. And vice-versa, my audio editor plays the sound incorrectly no matter what the settings are. I'm going to try to download the latest drivers, but I don't think that can be the problem.

    I downloaded this sample pack and I've got no problems playing them back. Works nicely in both WinAmp and the audio editor Audacity.

    Are all the programs using the same playback method? For example in WinAmp in the preferences dialog you can switch output between DirectSound and WaveOut. If you enter the settings for those two outputs you can change the device and/or channels. Might be a place to start troubleshooting it at least.

    I've downloaded the Tama Birch Drums sample pack (http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/packsViewSingle.php?id=1813) and I'm experiencing the following problem. (The samples are 24-bit 44 kHz.)

    When I'm playing the sounds in Media Player Classic, they sound great. And I mean really great. But when I put them in an audio editor, they sound like shit. I even tried to re-record one of the sounds with the "What You Hear" mode on my Audigy 2 on 16-bit 44 kHz, 24/44, and 24/96, but it's still the same. If my soundcard is able to playback a sample at 24-bit 44 kHz (via Media Player Classic), I don't get how an audio editor can screw it. It's weird. This is really breaking my technical comprehension of sound on PC. And it's not the fault of the editor as I even tried the original Creative Wave Studio.

    I really want to use the samples as they're dope, but I'm lost. Do you know what the problem might be?

    Hey all,
    I am looking for a fairly specific sample. I am looking for a voice, preferably female, to say the following phrase- "Wither. Fade. Remain." This would be for my upcoming cd of the same title. I would of course give the vocalist/engineer full credit.

    I would love a European voice preferably with an accent! Again, female voice preferred but I will be happy with a great vocal part regardless. I have tried sampling different people but we all have that same Central NY accent!

    I anyone is famiar with the band Wilco there is a great female voice saying the words "Yankee, Hotel, Foxtrot" on their album of the same name. That is exactly what I am looking for. Almost a public address, dispatch style of delivery.
    Thanks so much!

    Simon,

    That's not at all bad considering the description I gave. The sample is to be used in an amateur dramatics play for a murder mystery and is used at the end of a scene where something happens that might give a clue to the murderer. The sample could be improved by raising the last note by 7 or 8 semitones so it sounds more like a question mark than a dramatic statement. It could also do with being about twice as long.

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Chorley Bob

    Hey everyone!

    I need your help. I want to download the ASIO4ALL driver (www.asio4all.com) but when I download it, it takes a fraction of a second (very short file :? ) and when I try to run the .exe it tells me that the file might be corrupt. Would anybody have a copy of the .exe lying around somewhere on their computer?

    VPN connections create extra safety measures (firewall, virus scanners, secure connection) and this slows down your connection considerably.

    Hello,

    I'm looking for advice on recording (on a notebook) background noises in a badly soundproofed building built not even 10 years ago.

    In a nutshell: I live in an apartment where one can hear the neighbours through the walls and ceiling (these acting like amplifiers it seems). I have loud people living below me, constant voices, TV from other neighbours, and one can hear doors slamming in the whole house, etc.

    The problem is, that while any single event may not be extremely loud, it's the constant background noise that is annoying... it's as if it travelling and spreading through all the walls.

    How best can I record this sort of "undirect" background noise? What equipment would I need? I would probably need some sort of audio interface to connect to the laptop. And what sort of microfone would I need (considering there is no direct sound source as such). What else?

    Basically, I want to record what my ears are hearing...

    Appreciate any advice!

    Ed

    thanks for checking that. seems you're right, somehow: I get much better speeds via the musipedia link, and when I use VPN connection via two different universities, the freesound connection gets faster. all between 50kb/s and 200 kb/s. I have no idea what the reason could be, without VPN I get max download speeds on other sites (600kb/s). without vpn, freesound connection still at around 5 kb/s.

    can one freely sawp between the host addresses? (i.e. the beginning parts of the address)?

    Once you get that right, I find it helps to glue the drums together with some tight compression on the whole drum submix, as well as a touch of reverb that all the drum sounds can be sent to.
    What exactly is a tight compression?
