Im making a Geek Radio so basically what i need is a series of sounds of someone saying "Geek Radio, Radio for the Technology Gifted" and "Geek Radio" I would also like for some of them to have some sound effects in them, computer/printer ones or guitar or drum. What you fancy. Any help is mega appreciated.

    I'm very sorry to give this information so late (back home from traveling and found it). I hope it would be anyway useful for those interested in the work of John Cage.
    here's some words from http://www.aaa-angelica.com/ (to read the complete text and event program: clic on "mappamenu"->N news->Take the Cage Train)

    "Cage’s Train remained engraved in the memories of all of those who took part in it, and the echo left behind by this prepared train still resonates after many years. In occasion of the 30th anniversary of one of the most important musical projects ever realized in Italy ... a new train is under construction.
    ...
    A part of the programme (1978 - Cage’s Train - In search of the lost silence - Three excursions for prepared train) will be dedicated to the events of 1978:
    An exhibition of photographic material, videos, installations and unpublished documents at Bologna’s Museo d’Arte Moderna (MAMbo, a fundamental collaborator to this project).
    The publication of a photographic book which contains critical essays on the event, in Italian and English, of three audio CDs containing the recordings made during the train’s journeys in 1978, elaborated by Walter Marchetti and Patrizio Fariselli following Cage’s instructions, and of one DVD (all the above are unpublished material which is being collected and issued for the first time).
    A new trio (whose members are all linked to Cage) with Joan la Barbara, Alvin Curran, and Philip Corner will open the series of concerts that will take place at the MAMbo.
    Two special evenings with FontanaMIXensemble from Bologna, a group of musicians that, in spite of the difficulties faced by those who do research, keeps developing its work on an international level. In this specific occasion they will present a few of Cage’s least known works, performed by a line-up which is rather new for those compositions, which also entail a special relationship with space.

    The other part of the programme, closely linked to the events that will take place at MAMbo, looks back to 1978 in order to rethink 2008, and to reflect upon the present.
    Take The Little Cage Train, at Bologna’s Museo della Musica, is the children’s world, a world that is close to all musics, lacking the distinctions made by adults. There will be an itinerant performance based on Cage’s work and created over several months by students and their teachers.
    Last but not least, Boletus Edulis - commuter music - by Alvin Curran, musical director of the project, musician and composer, who will be in charge of the sonorization of the train and of coordinating the guest musicians with the local contributions (town bands, choirs, etcetera). For them, he will write new compositions in order to re-project together the “prepared train” and the places of its stops: an acoustic train in sharp contrast with modern technology, where musicians and music occupy a central role.
    Before returning to Bologna, the audience/passengers will enjoy a mushroom-based buffet inspired in Cage’s passion for mushrooms.
    The ingredients of Boletus Edulis will not be fully revealed, but they will remain a surprise for the passengers: only at the end of the event it will be possible to know and to write what happened.
    ...
    Radios will follow the train in order to broadcast it to the places it cannot reach."

    Well, brother... those are ROMplers, and legally the bare patches can't be uploaded here. What makes those units so bad-ass is not the samples anyway, but the pads on which you play them. I have a hunch you want "world" type and percussion sounds; so i suggest taking the time to dig for individual sounds and packs of that nature here at freesound... you will find plenty of good samples, i assure you.. here is a link to get you started http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/packsViewSingle.php?id=3456 good lucks

    Hi. First off I just want to say that I love this site. It's awesome and there is alot of creativity lurking around in here. With that being said, I am an up and coming producer who needs a name and a vocal tag to go along with it. Something catchy and simple that is easy to spell and in a vocal format that can cut through a mix. Original is always best too. So far I've only been able to come up with Shiny Giant as a possibility. I make hip-hop beats but I'm not crazy about anything that is spelled with a z (if you catch my drift). I know this is a shot in the dark but if anyone happens to know a cool word or maybe just have a cool audio clip lying around I would forvever be greatfull. And if I ever get on (make it big) I'll be sure to throw a little something your way. Wink wink and what not.

    Hello,

    I am getting the following error when trying to do a search via the API:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 35 bytes) in /var/www/class.FreesoundWordnet.php on line 220

    Is there any way the PHP max memory setting can be increased above 8MB? ... or is there some other way to solve this problem?

    Thanks!

    hi there:

    I love using the freesound sample pool in ccmixter.org remixes. I am grateful to those of you who worked out that the sample pool here would be easily searched from there. It's great!, and it's helped me make fun music.

    Usually, when I do a remix I use the mixter attribution engine, which I believe uses your search engine to search things which are on your site.
    Ordinarily, I can just log in the freesound number, and pull up the sample attribution.

    However, this week I had this bug arise:
    when I search for samples numbered 7382 and 27757, the search engine replied that they did not exist. I found them manually by name instead.
    All the other freesound samples turned up fine.

    I checked with Victor S who advised me that it was not an issue at the mixter end, so now I thought I would check with you.

    I write in case you've made a change to your search engine which created this issue recently, as I never had this issue arise before.

    I searched from Mozilla.

    Thanks so much for making these sounds available to ccmixter.

    I uh, kind of forgot to come back and check for replies.

    I suppose the site looks like the internet archive because I used the same flash player as them. I had meant to fiddle with the colours and maybe draw a skin/container sort of thing but I didnt get around to it.

    I wish I could say that the tracks were all shortened preview versions but they arent, I tend to lose focus pretty quickly and find it hard to make anything longer without it sounding really repetitive. That would be my biggest criticism of what I produce, it tends to be short and repetitive.

    They're all mixed by me, though I'm an absolute beginner. I tend to just leave them alone.

    Yes I have only ever added tags, would be nicer if we could simply agree or disagree with tags smile

    digifish

    I think that would be a programming nightmare, and designing a usable interface would be difficult. But maybe not. Bram could speak better to this aspect.

    However, because of your article, I will put "synth" in anything that is synthesized, 'actual natural "field recording"' in anything that is a field recorded, and "remix" in anything remixed. I hadn't even thought of this issue until you brought it up.

    Maybe the upload process could be altered to require the checking of these categories before it can be listed. That would ensure that a search would always have the tags to act on ( for new uploads anyway). Not as comprehensive as your solution, but easier to implement.

    synth or field recorded
    raw or edited (by the original poster)
    primary or remix/derivative

    I have noticed it is difficult to find sounds in common categories. The number of hits is so high it is impractical to vet them all. So I've started to use the random sample feature a lot. Discovered some gems that way.

    I put wind chime into the search box and got 65 hits. If you do the same, one of them will probably satisfy your request. They vary greatly so you have lots of choice. smile

    Hello freesounders,
    My name is Michael and I'm with Poker Brothers Studios. I have shot a short Zombie comedy and am in need of samples. I am looking for a loopable track of zombie noises, car alarms, sirens, gun shots, and the general sounds of chaos from a Zombie invasion. The scene takes place inside an apartment so the sounds are happening outside, and it is an urban area of town.

    Wolfsinger has a great sound, 20 sec of zombies, that is very close to what I'm looking for but the frequency of sounds is to dense, and the volume of the sounds is too uniform. However I am using it in another scene since it is such an excellent sample.

    Thank you in advance for any help
    Michael
