    I haven't played that game is SO long - I can't remember what it sounded like - the only one I remember for sure is the Tesla Coil... "bugzapper" sound.

    That was nice.

    I won't be able to work on any more sounds for 24 hours - what's your deadline?

    I was thinking about the chronoshift sound used in the games red alert...
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronosphere#Chronosphere
    It has a power up sound...then edited explosion or something

    I'm not sure on those sounds...it sounds too synthesized. I like the thunderclap elements maybe...and the electronic buzz...I was wondering if the sounds should buzz or flicker. I considered there being two main sounds for the teleportation, one is a start up - a flickering yellow light...the other a strobe flash indicating the teleportation.

    The mololith sound could be a machine hum, that then suddenly stops or goes quieter in the next shot...

    I got a few quick shots of the machine...doosh doosh doosh....maybe...doooo dood oooooooooodooodooooodooodoo ooooooooooo oooooooooowwwwwwwooooooooo... monolith?

    I'll head down there in a second and try some stuff out...want it sounding fresh...

    that's a good point LG. that's why i said they need to do what they need to do. but i have been sitting here thinking about it and in all reality one of them could keep the site going (if they cared enough) on their own. yeah just change the name of the site..if the school tries to say it own the rights to the name...it sure in the hell don't own our samples. lots of you guys seem to know a lot about web page development and such..you all can't help keep it up if the school pulls the plug? and would they really pull the plug on something that is pretty hot right now..and probably getting more hits and new members-than any other site the school has.

    i don't know mybe they would. i doubt that..but maybe they would. but like i said..this community here has become fairly tight and many of us would probably do anything to be part of this and to keep it going. so really-one can't kill a good thing if people love it-no matter how much one might try.

    also-if i am correct-don't the samples on here only take up about 35 gigs or so? heck that's not even half of ONE OF MY LAPTOPS...so....i don't see how hard it could be to maintain this. i know there's more involved-but come on-pull some resources together and see what we can do. donations might no be working...yes..but hey folks...STOP GETTING GREEDY..JUST BECAUSE WE SEND YOU A FEW BUCKS TO GET SOME MORE SPACE..BE HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU GOT. maybe that's part of the problem? you all got a few bucks from donations..want more to get more toys...and now we are talking ads.

    i don't know about you but i thought freesounds was doing pretty good with just a place to put the sounds and us people doing all the work

    no need to pay anyone to go to the school (some famous musican) to record etc...

    let some company pay timberaland 600 thousand a track (idiots for doing that to begin with)-this site-i thought-was about the public-not the pro's who are already famous. once you start brining them in-you'll have to change your license agreement aaaaaaaaaaall over again because you best bet that someone will come out and say no no no no..i didn't say you could use that sample for free.

    and that's when you'll here me say...ooooooooooh god here we go...

    LS, I feel sympathy for your point of view (I also doubt about ads) but the problem is that Freesound is around just because of the university and if they pull out... So, what else do we have?

    I suggested EU funding but that is not without problems as well.

    see i'd be down with say a small company or basically some smaller group. but seriously..dont you think google..yahoo..sony..etc..have enough money?

    and dobride...yes i know about filters but you can't filter out yahoo's ads. so when i go to click on my fantasy baseball site..i get this big ass ad about transfomers the movie...LIKE I CARE. I DON'T GO TO THE MOVIES ANYWAY..

    see sites like yahoo (and google if it was more than just a simple page) have completely redesigned their pages to benefit the ads. i'm telling you..you start adding ad's to this site and eventually that's what's gonna happen to this one. folks here might be saying..no no no. i'd never let that happen..well guess what..once someone offers you up a million bucks for it..you're gonna sell the site..AND US OUT.

    but i guess i can't blame you because i'd probably take the money to (but at least i'd make sure i had input still in the site and at least do everything in my power to keep the ads off)

    i am very anti-ads.

    but like i said. i don't run the site and you gotta do what ya gotta do to keep this thing going right? but always remember..money talks and bullshit walks. once the school see's how much it can get from google-you better believe they'll sell it to them or to the highest bidder.

    then watch..not only will they ad MORE ADS...they MAKE US PAY TO BE MEMBERS OF SOMETHING WE'VE DEVELOPED!

    we have enough of that selling out going on here in america...i was hoping you europeans had more sense.

    Here's what I came up with for a teleportation:

    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=32543

    Here are a few of the separated elements:

    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=32541
    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=32542
    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=32544

    If it works - Enjoy making things disappear into the quantum realm.

    I'm not sure about the monolith sounds. I keep hearing a vocal pad in various disharmonic chords swamped with heavy reverb... not sure if that's just a personal problem I need to see someone about - or if it can help ya...

    but there ya go

    I saw the sound you posted, thank you very much it was perfect.

    We may need more sounds in the future, if so we could pay you through paypal a few bucks per sound.

    I've just add Google ads on my webpage, and I'm already thinking about removing them...
    1. When you think about making money with that, think again.
    2. Adds, ok, but what kind of ads ? "Free 3D smileys" ? "Cool cellphone tunes"?

    I guess I'll wait for my first 100 bucks, and unsuscribe... Which means that they will be on my pages for at least a year...

    What about partnership ? See if Shoeps, Neumann, Senneihser would be interested ? Or, even better, some small shop around Barcelona ? That way you would have chances to make some cash for what you need (more than you would with Google), do something that really feets the website, and provide users with ads that would be actually interesting...

    I think the most annoying thing with advertisments is when they miss there target. Exept if one of you guys needs viagra...

    uhh... how about alternatives like creating the figure of 'supporting member', for example? Adds look like a simple way to get some money, but over the long term... could have many-fold implications? And I also wonder, are adds coherent with FS licensing scheme? I need throughly think about it before voting.

    (LS, I see your point since also hate adds, but do you really see any? There are filters, you know...)

    also..when the site gets sold to some crappy company they'll start redesigning it with ads RIGHT UP FRONT. to all of you out there who make web pages. WHEN THE FIRST THING I SEE IS AN AD..I DON'T EVEN GO ANY FURTHER. I WON'T EVEN BROWERS YOUR SITE.

    there's a lot more people like me out there as well. its bad enough we got pro teams selling naming rights to staduims..lets try and keep that shit off the net.

    i don't want to see ads period. i know how to find google.

    www.google.com.

    i don't need an ad for that. besides i get enough of that crap from yahoo etc.

    see what's gonna happen is you guys are gonna sell the site to someone eventually and then we are gonna get stuck with this add filed site that will look yahoo and every damn my space page.

    i voted no.

    i know you guy need help getting things and the likes...but i'd rather see it done differently. i mean if ads are the last resort then i guess you have to do what you have to do right? but when the ads start coming then next thing we know WE LOSE CONTROL OF THE SITE...next thing we know..the schools gonna see how much (if any) the ads will kick down money..they had the site over to some company..microsoft...whoever..and now we are left looking at samples from j lo and all that crap that's out there.

    uuuuuuugh..

    please no ads. keep this site the only ad free site on the net that still gets a shit load of hits.

    both kontak and reaktor are great..but really freaking expenisve. you can get cheaper and just as good..if not better stuff from other places. really both of those are known because most of the mags that do reviews are from europe and england..so they obviously big up their own people's stuff.

    FLstudio is pretty darn good. i'd try that. its very easy to use and you'll get to making stuff pretty quick with it. where as the others' you have..pan this..and click on that..and turn this..and add this to that..JUST TO GET STARTED.

    but the answer is no you don't need a native instrument device to do the things you want. but they seem to own everything so pretty much anything you purchase will be from them anyway.

    let us know what you end up getting.
