Would you have a particular cello part in mind? If you were to write one, I would be glad to play it. Or at least try to play it .
Great. I hope the play is indeed mad LS.
I put up a note on my page asking for comments / ratings on my sounds, initially to get some feedback on the quality. Absolutely no response, but then its not surprising considering the size of the project and now knowing the quality out there.
Not everybody is after the sound of a rain forest and not everybody is desperate for the sound of a chicken. Thing is, sincere users will attribute the sounds correctly, and contact the makers if they are used. To me, this cancels out any egotistical hoohar about ratings and download figures.
Good tagging is essential if you want to get noticed I reckon, apart from uploading a zillion sounds just because numbers matter and it will get you on the front page.
Personally I'd like to see something like monthly competitions that maybe gets people voting on different sounds, disgusting sound of the month, most unbearable 3 second sound of the month...best falling from a height sound of the month etc. Maybe those inclined would contribute and the winners would appear on the front page, highlighting their other stuff..... I DON'T KNOW!
I know freesound has a certain sophisticated user base but there's also the likes of myself who are obsessed with music / sound / noise who just like to have a bit of fun from time to time.....
and I contacted them just now
Hi all... I found a nice link to something similar...
This is a really cool site with lots of sounds from days gone by
Hi folks! My name is Steelman, I'm looking for some good rock'n roll drumloops, also rock ballads. I also need some brake and fills, to livin' it up a bit. Been looking all over the web, and have not fund anything satisfying. Can anybody help. I use acid 5.0 for making music. Beats from 80 to 140 is prefered. :?:
slowly we're catching up a little again. if we keep going at this rate, maybe we'll pass the downloads again in a bit
I'm using an iRiver H320 with Rockbox software for recording. Mostly live music of friends bands.
I am currently using an iRiver H320 with Rockbox software on it, it records to Wav, has Electronic Meters to avoid clipping. I just switched to the Rockbox software so I don't really have that much experience except for just playing around a bit. The record to wav and meters are a much needed improvement over the iRiver firmware. The nice thing is Rockbox is dual boot, so I can also boot into the iRiver firmware if needed.
i have been very bad in the past, downloaded lots, uploaded none ops:
have just uploaded 13 in an attempt to rectify the situation i will add some more when i have a bit of a chance to sort them out.
this is an excellent resource, thanks everyone involved.
hey thanos, can we see the video somewhere?
that would be neat.
Just a note - the rubbing glass sound Harri uploaded made it into my final piece. Works real nice.
That sound is a minor part of the video piece, which is a minor part of a theatrical performance, but there's a whole page in the program that says SPECIAL THANKS TO HARRI FOR THE SOUND EFFECT IN THE CLONING VIDEO . I'm not kidding. (I told the director to attribute the sound and he forgot, then he remembered just as the program went to press. Shit happens.)
If anyone's in Athens, Greece and interested in seeing 'Cabaret of Garbage' at the Altera Pars theatre in Kerameikos, drop me a note. I think it's playing for a few more weeks.
I think I may have some knocking about somewhere, I'll have a look.
Drop me a line at the studio, and if I find them, I'll post them on to you.
I've been doing some mad stuff recently (that makes a change eh), so I've got some 'Farm' sounds, some mad Radio Squeaks, Speak & Spell Samples, Synthi Rhythm Loops, and a whole bunch of other mad machine type noises which I'll put up at the weekend.
actually I'm against these kind of rankings...no offense to those contributors ofcourse, but I think we should avoid this "rich-get-richer" behavior.
More random sounds instead of only one each day, would be my suggestion.
Or come to think of it, perhaps a list of "most popular contributors" ...
or "most popular sample packs" ... those would provide lists with
Two requests probably born out of sheer vanity:-
Would it be possible to have a "more..." button below the list of most popular downloads
in the last 7 days, to get an extended listed to say the top 50 (or more)? Over recent days/weeks,
the top ten has been dominated by the rbh-thunder and prac- files. People might like
to know what else is snapping at their heels.
Also, is it possible to see if a file has received any votes at all? Or who has voted? (particularly
for files the enquirer has submitted). How can we encourage more voting?
(Maybe I should submit some harmonica samples?)
