    Good work and I like the fact that this animation is not saturated in sounds.

    What works for me is that the scenes with silence and a light breeze speaks out louder than the scenes with the music.

    The only thing that kills the film is the compression rate used to stream it but I understand that there is nothing you can do about that.

    I can just imagine how good this would look like without compression.

    I guess the poor guys dies in the end when he still thinks he can fly ?

    At least thats what I got from it because he was dreaming that he could fly.

    I dream about flying all the time but only 1 time in my entire life did I have a dream that was so real [right down to the smell of things around me] that I woke up and found myself still in another dream.

    I was able to fly in the second dream and this can be really dangerous because before I flew, I could not tell the difference between the real world and the dream world.

    I imagine you need to look for artificial fur that has an open fabric, otherwise you loose some of the highest frequencies.

    what your looking for is an instrument called chimes I believe.

    here's a sample pack:

    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/packsViewSingle.php?id=2789

    I found it after doing a search for chimes. About 60 or so results in. There are about 300 other samples that match it that you could look through, if that pack doesn't work for you.(you'll probably have to go through some results that don't match up that well with what you want)

    I do.

    I use it myself and I am very satisfied. Check my profile to hear my samples. They have all been recorded with H2 built in microphones. You can also preview some MP3's from my website www.luftrum.com.

    How are they holding out in strong wind? Done any testing yet?
    Herbert

    Hi Herbert,

    the little things perform well, sample http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=49802 experienced 30 km/h gusts and noise is scarcely noticeable. Actually similar to that in a file which used a complete professional Rycote system (http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=49801 ; same sounds but different mics, so the comparison may be unfair).

    In the end fur quality and length will determine effectiveness, mine is 25 mm long but cheap (mainly used to sew Lion King disguises for schoolchildren smile For strong winds it would be easy to add an additional layer of fabric , but you know, nothing prevents noise completely at windpseeds 50 km/h and above because, even though air pressure may not reach the mics, you always get the noise of wind hitting whatever one uses to cover them.

    Saludos

    Hi (again) Dobroide,
    Wow simple! Thanks for sharing. Now I really have no reason any more to postpone building my own windjammers. How are they holding out in strong wind? Done any testing yet?

    Just though I would let you guys check out my youtube channel. I have several videos that us a few clips from this site.
    It's basically a blog but sometimes I (and people probably) get bored of my talking at my desk so I try to make some funny videos.
    If you have an account feel free to send me a message, subscribe, or friend me.
    I love this site and it has helped me fill all the gaps in some of my videos, hopefully in the future I can use it more smile

    Hello mates! Need your help w/ recording a small jingle for my monthly podcasting. smile
    I need someone who is able to pronounce in definitely London pronunciation following stuff:

    "Yardley Moorland...( a small pause) It's True Deeeeeeeeeep......" (saying very confident) (accent on 'E' in word Deep) (it's better man voice)

    and also this one:

    "You are tuned to monthly podcasting session by Yardley Moorland!" (the same confident style) (maybe girl voice)

    Thanks in advance! Help very appreciated! :roll:

    if you use Microsoft IE for download:

    Please google for the Item: Switching off the content advisor.

    It's a known problem unter Windows XP. The system sets a Password and you can't switch off
    the Content Advisor. So you dont't get the item " save as..." in the download window.

    I hope I could help someone.

    Hi all,

    any field-recordist will tell you that wind can be a serious nuisance, and proffesional solutions to protect mics are often utterly expensive, Here's my (CC) contribution to the many DIY alternatives that can be found googling around: DIY mini-windjammers for tiny lapel mics

    Thanks for your replies...

    Ok...I did try it with my voice, but to be honest, I sound awfull and have an accent that I cannot lose!!! So thats that!! If someone here is able to have a go at recording themselves, that would actually be awesome!!!

    Thanks for the black eyed Peas tip too...i'll certainly check that out..!

    I think I'd prefer a CLEAR sample too btw...as that way, it can be manipulated pretty much to how I would like it to sound.

    Thanks again for your replies. it's much appreciated as I am a new guy here!

    I have been using some single drum samples to build up some drum loops. The plan was to submit them to the Renoise loop project http://www.loopproject.com/. Their aim is to generate a Royalty Free set of loops that any one can use the only trouble there is no mention of ownership.

    At the moment I am struggling to see how I can submit the loops to this project without referencing the original author of the drum hits. The only way I can think of doing this is to include their name in WAV loop title. (This may not be a problem as I am trying to use a single source for original drum hits)

    Any ideas ???

    I'm asking you whether you can record the word via microphone. Do you need it clear or grabbed from something?

    Hey Mamma by The Black Eyed Peas has the word Remix in it, but there's a record spin back going on in the background.
