    In my experience nothing is junk it's all relative and someone will find whatever you do useful. The point is that although a lot of experienced sound people use freesound but also a lot of people who cannot make their own sounds. That said you will know what you believe is your best stuff and I would start with that. If you look at the most popular downloads over 7 days there are always samples of thunder, record scratches, amen breaks, and so on so I would say don't go there unless you have something really different as it has been done very well already.

    What I like to hear on freesound are things that stand out as being different from the run of the mill but that stuff is needed anyway. So just upload some sounds and see how it goes. One thing is for sure - the best stuff is not often the most popular - beauty is in the roses and the thorns. And ignore the guys who rate your stuff low but don't tell you why - they have probably never made a sound in their lives. Genuine freesounders will give constructive criticism and help anybody.

    Look forward to your sounds.

    I'm not clowning

    Hi - you just need to go to the "describe uploaded files" option - it's just next to the ftp applet option on the left of the page.

    Keep 'em coming.

    I've been meaning to getting around to contributing some more noise/sound to the site, but at the same time I don't want to clog the site with junk.

    I know one man's trash is another treasure but I want to try a little better than hope there's a little treasure in a ton of trash.

    Is just rambling instrument noise good or just a waste?

    Sample note packs much more useful or not?

    Other sounds?

    Try doing a search here for the word "slurp" there's some sounds including a soda can slurp and some fruit slurping that might contain the noise you need.

    Jep, sorry - when I put it in the background it is barely distinguishable... but for purposes of uploading it here I understand... I will be more careful next time...

    hey mkoenig,

    you still need to describe those files... they're sitting in the FTP area, but as long as you don't describe them they won't be presented for moderating. And remember, when describing make sure you take good care of both tags and descriptions as it will speed up the moderation process (i.e. be as detailed as possible!)

    mkoenig,

    remember I sent you an email about your files (and also replied on the forum). I was moderating your files and made a big error: seeing free-loops.com in the description I thought that the files were taken from a copyrighted collection of sounds.

    see http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/forum/viewtopic.php?p=12103#12103

    A lot of people take files from websites and put them on freesound. From a copyright point of view this is dangerous (as most of those "free sounds" don't have a license compatible with Freesound). I assumed wrong!

    Apologies (again), but as you can imagine, moderating 30K files isn't all that easy sometimes smile

    Yeah bro thats fine... but i uploaded 60 more smile

    Hot Dam... 30,000s files give me a headache just thinking about it :lol:

    You definitely have SOMETHING installed on your computer that is being annoying to you. Me, I click the link (left) and it just pops up the regular "save file as" dialog in firefox...

    Hello, first of all thanks for this website.
    One of the finer things i come across in all these years on the net.
    As is also the other cool site ofcourse ccmixter.
    Are there anymore sites that have sounds and stuff going on in CC license format?

    I'm requesting for a snare drum sample that sounds like the one that the band HillSong United used for their snare drum in their song "Lead Me to the Cross". I've searched everywhere for something that sounds like the snare, I can't find anything. Thanks for reading my post. I hope someone can do it.

    Here is a sample of the song:
    www.fileden.com/files/2007/8/19/1363402/song2.wav

    IF anyone does do it, then email the sample to my email address at yang_michael_209@hotmail.com

    Hi,
    I tried the pencil erasing, two takes. I don't know if it really sounds like what you want. Unfortunately I can't help with the trampoline.

    I hope you find those usable.
