    Hello all. When I was in Naples Italy, I was struck by the incredible diversity of sound coming from car horns and the frustrated drivers in the traffic gridlock. It got me thinking along the unusual lines of a car horn as an instrument. Eventually, I changed violin patches to suggest various horns, and used some of the police radio samples kindly submitted by ERH, to enhance the track.
    I laid down a backing track, which is meant to sustain the picture of a vehicle bowling along the freeway at a steady pace, and then built up a mental audio storyboard of a police pursuit scenario. I had fun anyway, and if you'd like a listen it's called Modern Symphony For The Car Horn.You can find it via the link, then selecting music on the right of the page.
    Once again, thanks to The Freesound Project for inspiration, and ERH in particular.

    Tell me if it's good. (You may need to apply some effects like reverb but the pattern is there)

    You mean midi as used in studios? You can't translate a ringing noise (from the sample you mention) into midi. You loose all character of the sound. Forget midi. A nokia 6070 supports mp3 too. That's what you need.

    First if you can say what is the Programming Language that the site is done,
    after if you can say what operating system you use,
    after search about Spectral Centroid algorithm for Amplitude Preview...

    The problem is that there is not Module/Routine for convert compressed sounds
    to raw PCM data for files like mp3/wma/ogg/flac :cry:
    in VB, JAVAScript, PHP and PERL langage (I think, exception to JAVA for MP3 files)
    So the server must do the job throught an external program that running on the OS
    that scan the files and make the two preview in Small an Normal Size...

    Hi all,

    I just discovered this site and joined straight away, when I found the perfect ringtone for me here at: http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=20069 but the problem is that my Nokia 6070 needs the sound in a Midi format. Because I only want to get this and maybe one or two more ringtones (which I am going to create myself I hope) converted, I am not keen on the idea of paying for a converter and so far my searches haven't shown up a true freeware converter. Does anyone know of a true freeware converter I could download, or does someone already have the software and would be able to convert the files for me please. I really don't want to pay for software I am only going to use a couple of times.

    Thanks for any help you can provide me,

    David.

    Hi,
    I'm working on a flash animation, and I need some cartoony voices. I'm sure there are some on the internet, but I cant imagine how I would search for it.

    What I really need is this "Huh?" voice that I think we hear a lot. So let's say you're watching a show where they have a personified rat, and he sees some food. He goes for it, but it moves away from him. The cartoon rat looks at it with a puzzled look- the sound you hear next is what I'm looking for... that cartoony "hmm?" or "huh?" sound. I raelly hope someone will know what I'm referring to.
    Thanks very much for the help.

    From the licenses listed in the poll only "Public Domain" is suitable for development of free games (none of the creative commons licenses that need attribution, sorry). Did you ever consider to allow GPL as an option for sound licenses?

    Well, I voted for "Public Domain" as it is surely the best option for music, movies and games alltogether...

    That's what I want to say! Agree you!

    Well, if Cubase didn't automatically pick it up (and you've already tried installing/reinstalling the drivers and restarting your computer) there's a couple things you can try. If you only want it to handle stuff to and from Cubase, open the program, go to devices - device setup. You'll need to select your device from the drop down list, and that should get you going. If that doesn't help you, check if you can play Windows sounds through it. Go to your Control Panel, into Sound, and make your MOTU your default sound card for everything except midi. Then Windows should play everything it does through the MOTU. If that doesn't work, there's something wrong. Good luck.

    EDIT: Sorry, I just realized I had assumed you were using PC. wootops: If not, sorry about the Windows babble.

    If you need an more robotic voice,
    just select lower Bit-Dept, I dont't know?

    Good idea,
    I suppose you could take a
    normal recording and bitcrush the crap out of it
    and some overdrive or other distortion(s)

    I've been looking around,
    and the advice I usually find is to use a vocoder.

    Neat,
    LASER tagging looks cool, I' gunna have to read more about that.

    For me, graffiti was kind of just a phase, I used to really be into it, shepard fairy, futura, yeah. I don't think I'd actually bomb a building or anything but still I write. Not as a hobby, just sometimes i'll barf something on some paper when I have nothing better to do...

    super PHAT. that's some good shit right there. better than anything i've heard here..other than one other guys song. somethings i liked others i didn't. loved the beat and sounds...vocals..eeeh..so so..kinda cheesy..not really feeling them but they sit well in the mix and thus help the song along.

    normally THIS ISN'T MY STYLE..but i feel what youre trying to do and dig it. much props. (and many people will tell you here that I DON'T GIVE PROPS OUT OFTEN.)

    so you must be doing something right.

    its funny that i found this. because i was thinking something similar. i was thinking that..hey isn't that copy right problems because someone has put up that loop? i mean even if no one is suing...its still illegal right?

    well if not then i have plenty of old movie samples that i know people will go ape shit over..so perhaps i'll put them up. many of them are from an old graffiti movie called style wars. i know for sure people would eat them up. think i should put them up? i mean..its no different than what some are doing with the amen break...or is it?
