ok, i did one too. Dont know if its usable though, because my speakers are broken (the higher frequencies arent played, and they are very bassy). Which of course manipulates very much with the sound. But you people decide if we´ll use it or not.
Hmm, hope i did it right. i called it "3rd re-recording of shower in the shower" or something close. But it havent appeared on the site yet...
Dont really have much time, since ill be away until next monday and are leaving in a very short while.
If you see this sample:
it´s really a technical accident, an overload. I put it on the side just for academic interests. Anyway, there are 40 downloads since 2 weeks. Sometimes you cannot estimate what the users want
Good to see this experiment is gaining momentum!
... and cleaned the bathroom (that made my girl happy again)
Ah, I now see what I did wrong... :wink:
... 336 orgasm 335 metal ...
I wonder who made that field recording... :wink:
Perhaps I should really start gathering a pool of enthused freesound users and organize tasks better...
Yeah, that is not a bad idea Bram. I guess there are enough people who would like to contribute. Count me in anyway.
that's not a bad idea, plaga... could you think about it a bit more? perhaps with some other people, and write down how you would see it in more detail? like, what would you need? something like a blog-like entity on freesound, something where you can add links, some way of publicizing articles (ok, that's already taken care of...).
as I said in another thread: yes, we need to add more things like this to freesound! If someone could please do the preparation work for it, I can implement it, but other people have to step up and give me a hand!
Actually, if you look at the popular searches in the last 7 days, it gives you some hints:
wind 1489 thunder 1421 scream 1402 rain 1395 gun 1193 Explosion 1177 bell 1073 car 1032 crowd 986 sex 959 water 934 phone 910 bass 883 fart 865 piano 848 guitar 792 fire 775 train 742 drum 739 beep 730 alarm 729 horror 726 telephone 716 dog 705 SIREN 701 crash 679 door 675 radio 664 cat 634 birds 633 laugh 626 VOICE 596 scratch 590 drums 571 record scratch 551 heartbeat 541 footsteps 538 storm 537 kick 537 applause 521 snare 508 scary 503 bird 498 click 497 clock 496 forest 492 ring 482 horn 478 ambient 471 trumpet 465 music 446 sonar 443 gong 442 horse 433 violin 432 traffic 422 bomb 419 camera 413 heart 407 glass 406 sea 398 ocean 396 vocal 384 Bells 383 war 382 space 381 nature 374 punch 373 chant 372 city 354 children 354 whistle 351 police 348 engine 348 static 346 loop 344 laser 343 thunderstorm 341 beat 336 orgasm 335 metal 330 sword 330 clap 326 hit 322 techno 316 phone ring 314
I think more things COULD be added. "Favorites" would be great, featured sample(packs) would be great, ... But the problem is time: while I can implement these features, someone else would have to fill them in. Perhaps I should really start gathering a pool of enthused freesound users and organize tasks better...
bebops - you could upload your picture to the freesound flickr account!
True! I've done it. Sorry the image is very blurry and low quality: http://www.flickr.com/photos/96798606@N00/272049598/in/pool-freesound/
Oh, I also geotagged and cleaned the bathroom (that made my girl happy again) :wink:
Maybe we could do an official Freesound mailing to all this kind of organitzations, starting with education orgs and special needs people orgs.
Maybe parents of autistic kids do have a list of other organizations that i could use to do a mailing explaining this project and it's possibilities?
I was thinking about other branches of the education world like Squeak
Bram, i would write the email myself, maybe we can send it from a more official account than my gmail jeje.
But i would need help collecting emails from orgs that could use our database. I encourage all of you to post any of them u may know already, or any you find on ur cybersurfing.
This would be a way to encourage this uses i was talking bout.
And if it works, maybe we could start a section of the website with links to all this organizations that use freesound for such purposes. Maybe some info, maybe even some articles, if they have time to write them. Like you, Bianca, maybe in some time you are able to write a little article on the use you (and the rest of the parents, or the other people that asked for the sound) gave to the free.sounds.
Thanks for the hasty replies, dudes.
I'll get back to you guys when i try these methods out.
EDIT: Great, Audacity does the trick. Thanks for the help!
maybe a poll could shed some light on what types of sounds people would like to see more of on FreeSound?
We have the sample request forum; shouldn't that suffice?
- maybe a poll could shed some light on what types of sounds people would like to see more of on FreeSound?
- maybe a monthly "special" could also help (setting a theme/keyword/type/what not...) as in: "This month, we encourage people to upload sounds that ...description... Of course, everything else is useful too!"
My 2 cents... Haven't been active lately around here, so maybe this was done before?
As far as usefullness it is relevant to the downloader. Some people may have different needs that evolve and change depending on what sounds they need to accomplish a specific sonic task... As for tagging them, you can tag them anything you want... I mean, you can tag other people's sounds... Let us know when you are done! If you search and then filter the results you can sort through unwanted items... another suggestion is to check out the packs...
They have things grouped in zipped folders for easy download... and they are all free...
the bass BUMPS are getting louder. I applied a little low-shelf to tune down the bass a little because in real life it wasn't that loud either...
You're right Bram. Consider it done!
guys! keep going, but, geotag!!!
and, I made it so the sampletree can be viewed from one single root:
Done! Super-fast moderatin' here, hehe.
Cool to hear that the sound really changes already!
By the way, LG, my girlfriend also looked at me with a funny face whe she's seen all the mess in the bathroom. She told me: "Hey! put your gear wherever you want but NOT IN THE BATHROOM!" lol!
Haha! We have definitely crossed the line there! Us sitting there with the recording gear is probably regarded as a full-scale invasion of The Last Girlie Bastion! hock:
quite low-frequency, and usually found in urban environments with lots of low frequency noise. I haven't managed a decent recording yet!
The other possibility is that you download a 'record what you hear' program, such as 'Audio Mid Recorder' ( http://www.download.com/Audio-Mid-Recorder/3000-2168_4-10285976.html?tag=lst-0-4)
theres plenty of these programs floating about, they basically cut out the D to A then A to D convertion, they have the Ronsil effect - do exactly what they say on the tin....
Edit: Just downloaded the Audio Mid Recorder and works wonders, only one problem...only a 60 second recording restriction unless you 'pay' for it...
bebops - you could upload your picture to the freesound flickr account!
Plagasul - i finally managed to read you mammoth post - 3 pages when i printe dit out! and now i sort of understand where the whole doing an action whilst listning to someone else doing it idea, wierd, but i get it.
As for Plagasul's cat fight but with humans...we could extend that. (I'm not proposing you make this happen) but say you knew of a fight going on (sketchy animal fights) record it and mix it with the humans and cat fights - getting a mix of animals fighting. I would propose that you play the sound along but i can imagine every freesounder walking everywhere with a cd player and recording equipment waiting for a fight between foxes or cows...not going to happen. Or how abouts you move it onto mundane things. Watching TV - different channels, different languages mixed together...
The possibilities with this whole shibang is endless, where can change, when can change, who, how, everything can change, everything is a factor...
