this will probably be possible in freesound 2.0 ( see the blog for news ).
Right now it's a bit... difficult.
Hi guys. I'm new here. this site is pretty nice! I have been looking for a hip hop bass drum sample. You know, like the bass drum that is the star in so many hip hop and R and B songs. I would appreciate it, if someone knew where a good sample was, or has one, to tell me about it. Thanks.
This website is great and I love the service you guys provide. If possible I would like to integrate freesound into a project I am currently working on. This would basically involve querying the freesound database from a flash interface and being able to audition samples (as mp3s) when selected. If the sample is used from there it would automatically be transferred to my own server to save on your bandwidth.
Obviously I would prominently display that your database was being used, and I would display the freesound logo linking to this site and encourage users to actively participate in what goes on here. All I would require is some sort of search API which could be called from a flash application. As long as it returned the ID and filename of the samples I could compile that information into the download links for the mp3's.
If this is not possible I will understand, I am just making a query.
Hmm, you mean something like this?
I'd suggest Freesound Search box, type in: "camera click" (without quotes). Should be lots of 'em.
i also listened they are realy good!!!
my name is ben and i sims to be new here, and i want to ask where can
get radio waves files?
(if you know what im meen)
Several years ago my company made a tape (!) called "Exploring Music & Sound On Your PC!" It was hailed as the most complete guide to beginning audio in on place! But it was ahead of its time (unlike our other tutorials on Windows, etc.)
I've taken the 2008 relevant parts from the DAT and made them into a series of (free) podcasts. They will be of interest to anyone wanting to know more about sampling rates, MIC quality, legalities, and very basic editing and mixing demonstrations. Have a listen at acpress.com.
These casts are also found via iTunes.
Let me know what you think!
We are curating an online sound project and are interested in your participation.
This audio project, RadioVillageNomade, will take place, day by day, for 214 days over 7 months (May-Nov 200 at La Corbiere in Switzerland. An audio play will be created using material contributed by invited artists and sound manipulators from all over the world. The "transmission" at this point is via our website, where a new mp3 is posted daily. The mp3s will be available for download with the intention that they be reused as raw material for new submissions. Selected pieces will be also be broadcast on European public radio. At the end of the 214 days we will weave all submissions into a 24 hour audio play.
The aim of this project is to cultivate works out of sounds which were designed without the intent to distinguish themselves from others, sounds that highlight the ever changing moments that make up our collective realities. Each day's piece will be a "window" into a life and sound world different than our own. Recognizing that global politics currently impose a climate of demarcation between peoples, our goal is to provide a context for creative cooperation that supersedes nationality and ethnicity and finds common ground in art. Below is a basic description of the type of submission we are interested in for Radio Village Nomade. Creative approaches are HIGHLY encouraged.
In general, as few restrictions as possible are imposed. We ask that artists define for themselves what constitutes a moment in time and how that might be captured as audio. Submissions should be mp3 files, 7 seconds to 7 minutes in length. Please avoid merely posting tracks from albums; music is not discouraged but the composition should relate to a moment.
Themes, such as a week of traffic recordings, nature, or children will develop based on the submissions received. A French sound arts duo, Kristof K. Roll, plan to do a period of simultaneous recordings around the world. Swiss artist Isamu Krieger is creating a sound menagerie of animal sounds made by humans. Proposals for more elaborate ideas such as these are welcomed.
RadioVillageNomade is one of many ongoing projects taking place at Laboratoire Village Nomade. The projects here revolve around the idea that no moment is the same, each transitory moment is special in it's own way and can be appreciated as such. RadioVillageNomade attempts to capture these moments as they are perceived by one person to be shared with anyone who wants to listen. The idea is to have a "window of sound", a glimpse into another reality seen (heard) from another viewpoint (listenpoint?).
We hope that you will consider creating and submitting a piece of work for our project. Please feel free to pass this information along, or recommend to us anyone you know who might be interested.

Hello all, nice to find a forum that is very useful...
Hey was this in Montreal? I can hear my Québecois accent there
Really scary indeed.
You could sample the opening of Xzibit's Paparazzi... I don't think anybody would notice you got the camera sound there. Or try the search box to your left
Your best bet would be a turntable and a crate of old 12" disks.
For boompoles, at filmschool I've always used Vandeberg booms, they're sold in Amsterdam by the Noyz Boyz (Google 'em and you will find 'em). Don't know what they cost, but you can phone them and ask about it or about the alternatives.
You can of course also ask them about the windjammers.
(Of course this info works best if you are in The Netherlands or close to it)
It looks like the blimp you have pictured is the 40 R. Is the 40 R big enough to fit an NT4 or do I need the 60 R. The company responded to an e-mail and said I would need the 60 R, but I wanted to double check, because it looks like you are using the 40 R with the NT4. Thanks again for the help.
Hi. I'm desperately looking for the sounds like um... the camera sounds(? hell I don't know how to call it) For example there are lot's of photographers and You hear this sounds and see flashes.
Pfff... For example you can hear it here:
Hope you help me.
Thanks (listed in credits as well as here):
Freed . acclivity . infobandit
bebops . dobroide . lonemonk
thanvannispen . Shades
The film is being submitted to festivals, the trailer can currently be viewed at
After it premieres I will post it online
Thanks for the great sounds!
Well... couple months ago maybe, following your last sample request here at Freesound I submitted some sounds but... silence is all I've got in return (an email to acknowledge receipt would be nice). Or was it in response to a request to the Nature Recordist Group? I can't remember, but quite disappointing anyway
I would not close the thread yet - I try to check every forum post but somehow missed your first one - other people do not get to visit as often. I have downloaded the RAR file and decompressed and am listening to your tracks - first impressions are it sounds very good with a lot of variety and I will listen some more.
