    Sorry for bringing up this old topic, but in my opinion the game company can't be forced to credit the sounds that someone used to make the soundtrack. This is one step too far, because the game company only uses a "song" and not "sounds".

    Just an example: Let's say you create a sound of a very cool snare drum. Now, someone uses it and creates a nice song out of it. Then he has to credit you, and that can be done on his homepage or inside the CD cover or wherever.
    But now, someone makes a film and wants to use the song inside the film. He would just have to credit the musician, since he's using his song, but it's not his job to also credit the creator of the cool snare drum.

    The same should apply to the game. If the game company has to credit someone, it's the musician of the soundtrack, and not the creators of the samples he used. Of course, if the game company uses some additional sound EFFECTS (for shooting etc) that they downloaded from freesound, they also have to credit those. Also if they compose the music by themselves. But not if they buy a finished song.

    Is there any website which has a collection of samples of people talking about animals?

    Thanks.

    you think the new version has changed alot compared to original 70's? ( can't remember..) I bet it sounds better but similiar now...

    I know they used a wire on a telegraph pole for some of the gun sounds...

    was that randy thom or ben burt?

    pehaps some phasing distortion on the fridge - feel your way down the keyboard ?

    Pretty sure it was Ben Burt.

    The original Vader breathing sound IIRC was a SCUBA oxygen regulator valve recorded with a small mic stuck way down inside the tank and maybe reverb-d a bit. If you listen closely there's a subtle clicking sound at each inhale/exhale.

    I was just going to say, you should take a look at cell phone wallpaper site they have ringtones and wallpapers, and perhaps you can work with them or see what they are doing!

    Hey post a piece of music and I'll try to spot what's wrong. I use reason so if you can send it to me in RPS (Reason Published Song) It would be even better.

    Here is my take on the Darth Vader breathing sound. It might need a little pitching down, but I think it's good.

    Thanks - It's always difficult making equipment-buying decisions. I'll probably hold on to my minidisc recorder for the time being as the sound quality is ok. Saying that, the Fostex FR2 LE looks pretty good smile Listened to your recordings with the NT4 which are great.
    Cheers.

    FWIW, it boils down to the following -

    1. Money/budget.
    The mac is and always has been the expensive option. Why? Reliability. I can speak from experience, as I've been producing in some of the world's best studios for the last 15 years. This isn't meant as bragging rights, more so to show my investigation background!! smile

    The PC has always up until recently been less reliable than the Mac. They are MUCH better now (although all bets are off until Vista settles down! grin)

    2. Audio hardware & software
    The audio/MIDI hardware is in essence the same, no matter what platform you go for. ProTools (the A&R's favourite wink ) is mutli-platform too. As is Cubase and Reason.
    If you want to use Logic, you're stuck with Mac.

    Some of the more esoteric (in other words, interesting!) soft synths and plugins are also platform native.

    Personally, I'm using a MacPro with Logic Studio 8, but I'm doing a wide range of music from Commercial pop to underground dance. I need something that can deliver it all. Plus I've also got a load of real synths, samplers etc as plugins will only take you so far.

    The platform, as others have intimated, isn't that important - it's your ideas that count, and how resourceful you are in creating your sound with the equipment you've got.
    There's very little point, unless you WANT to, in spending a load of money on equipment that won't earn you anything back (if that is your goal)

    Most people start of with a PC or even Atari (!), a synth, or sampler, cubase/reason....... and take it from there. it will cost muc hless than a new computer and all the stuff that goes with it..... smile
    also, to get the actual sound you want is also an art in itself. Get to your local college and look at a course in Music tech or Sound Engineering. This is how I started (MANY MANY years ago!!)
    Learn the rules before you break em wink

    Might not be the answer you were looking for, but hope it helps anyway smile

    Hi - Just taken the plunge and ordered an Audio Technica 822 mic to replace my elderly Sony MS 907. I'd narrowed down the AT with a Rode NT4 and, after doing research on both, decided on the AT due to its favourable user reviews and listening to Freesound member RHumphries fantastic thunder recordings. Cheers.

    It's a great mic, I am sure you will both be very happy together smile

    Hi there,

    I used some samples from freesound on a minimal house project.

    samples: By LG (http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/usersViewSingle.php?id=36188)
    Femal uh.wav (http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=15441)

    By LS (http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/usersViewSingle.php?id=12368)
    vocal.wav (http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=7205)

    Hope you'll give it a listen. It's not finished yet-but the framework is there.

    Hi - Just taken the plunge and ordered an Audio Technica 822 mic to replace my elderly Sony MS 907. I'd narrowed down the AT with a Rode NT4 and decided on the AT down to its pretty good user reviews and listening to Freesound member RHumphries fantastic thunder recordings. Cheers.

    I have been searching for some time now for drums that are recorded with a couple (or one or more) of room mics only,no up close mic'ing (?).Maybe i am searching for the wrong words but i come up with about 100 sounds most of which have downloaded.I would prefer recorded patterns so i can cut them apart but i would appreciate anything along these lines.Thanks.
    edit: If anyone knows of similar sounds on this site (maybe i have missed some) or others feel free to post a link i would really appreciate it.thanks

    Hi Everyone,

    I am looking for a car tire screeching around a turn or a "peeling out" sound. If anyone has any suggestions or access to that sound and is willing to help I would be appreciative.

    Thank y'all,

    Andy
