    Thanks for that. ADR is really not an option, could and should have done that.

    I think the sound recordist made two errors ( I was too buy doing my job- directing - to notice)

    He used a lavalier to record the talent! ie the mike was stuck to table, and because it was a long shot he gave me the nod it was cool.

    Of course it was not cool. As you know on set you have to trust your key crew, he let me down he did. No worries though. This is a low budget feature and I have simply run out of cash, so must fix this as best as I can.

    thanks anyway.

    When I follow the instructions for downloading using IE7, on clicking "Save Target As" I get the message, "Internet Explorer cannot download. No such interface supported". What does this mean? How should I proceed?

    Ok Mike (alphahog),

    I incorporated your sounds. You can pull the game out of CVS as described above.

    The attribution.txt is here:
    http://bethewumpus.cvs.sourceforge.net/bethewumpus/bethewumpus/sounds/Attribution.txt?revision=1.3&view=markup

    If that looks ok to you I'll make a new tarball for distribution.

    I assumed a Creattive Commons Sampling plus 1.0 license... if that's not correct, let me know.

    Thanks very much.

    thanos- making a phonoautograph seems entirely possible actually after looking at some diagrams from the century dictionary. I wish I could do it but I've got a feeling my wife won't allow it as I should probably be job hunting instead of tinkering. Here is an enlarged picture of the diagram from the century dictionary. If anyone can figure out what that word ' and movable piece at a, by which the position of the _____ points can be regulated ;' is Please let me know, as I'm trying to make a restored copy of this Diagram and I honestly don't know what kind of points it's regulating

    the description of the invention is here:
    - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phonograph#The_phonautograph

    What I understand of that:
    is that the cylinder will concentrate the physical vibrations,
    into the metal key and more the pitch/frequency/cycles will be high,
    more dots will be drawn for the same time/duration/lenght on the paper,
    hope it was usefull...

    Hello everybody, one more volunteer wink

    P.S.: I think it could be interesting to give some info about volunteer knowledge, in order to give out the work.

    weirdhock:

    Is it really so disturbing? I log in many (many) times everyday, each time I must type username and passwd (as I don't want my browser to remember anything) yet never found it annoying, so... maybe it all depends on the point of view of the user (?)

    logging in allows ppl to know who uploaded what samples (as if you ever would), who downloaded what samples, who posted on the forum, and what samples you downloaded. hey heres a freaking novel idea... since you are all about freesound and feel compelled to share your invaluable opinion with the community... how about contributing AT LEAST as much as you complain? :wink:

    Whatever allegedly motivates freesound's login necessity, "bandwidth" etc., it is a creepy hassle and really ruins the site.

    Currently I cannot d/l content, as the login screen does not return me to the clip page, and my login does not persist when surfing the site. I find a clip I want, but am no longer logged, when I log I lose the page, when I relocate the page I am no longer logged. Brilliant.

    I have succesfully used the site in the past and think it is an awesome effort, but the login is childish, and I don't want a workaround. Just ace this foolish and terribly implemented logging nonsense.

    Admittedly, I hate joining sites, hate logging in ever. So I'm a crank. But still, I like Freesound, I want to use the site for up and downloads. So I registered, some time ago, and went through the infuriating login runaround. Now, whatever has changed about the site protocols or my browser prefs, even the humiliating and insulting hassle of "logging in" gets me nowhere.

    I guess it is saving freesound bandwidth, for sure, as the site is perfectly unusable.

    Please! Let's grow up and not Googlize the place. Tear down the walls and make freesound really free.

    Ok this is a toughie, but I know that someone here might still have this toysynth. So if you can sample the drums from it then I'd be very happy.

    Lysander, if you can replicate that contraption, I will make all the excuses necessary to your wife! What a project. The tricky part might be decoding the paper afterward because the phonoautograph was intended to visualize sounds, not reproduce them - the people at Firstsounds developed some kind of method to scan the scratches and transform it back to audio. Kind of like how Audacity can transform jpgs to sound files? Hm. Nah. Very different. Although if you feed Audacity images of geometric shapes it does odd things. I wonder what it would do with a high contrast image of that phonoautogram?

    The word is 'modal' - isn't this just a lever for adjusting the needle on the paper?

    Hammerklavier, this performance of yours is a riot! It challenges and makes people laugh. And call the police. Perfect night out at the theatre. (I had a less than perfect night out at the theatre yesterday, if only they'd stopped the show and said what you said...) It's so cool for an audience to intervene, to be invited by the cast. The open unpredictability of it. If I found a group that could do that well I'd go every Sunday, theatre as church of the absurd. You still do this sort of thing? Maybe at the first annual Freesound Festival you could share a tent with Bram's massive recording people.

    In the BBC interview, they said the focus of Firstsounds is on early sound recordings, cylinders and early LPs and such. The project's goal is to 'read' the audio optically so they don't touch or damage the antique materials. But I think the research could easily go in other directions - if there is the slightest evidence of sound recorded somehow on unlikely objects, what a new world it would open. It's all about the process, of course, engineering the right instruments to read the right marks.

    (Incidentally, one of the Firstsounds gang - Patrick Feaster - is at IU).
