    I just uploaded a bunch of raw breath sounds.

    Maybe someone can add effects - or I can do it later.

    If you can't use them here, then perhaps someone else might string them together for an obscene phone message or something... possibilities are endless.

    I need a clean sound of tapping the speakers microphone which triggers the feedback - you know - for a cliche presentation of inexperienced public speakers...
    Does anyone have a realistic recording of this?

    thanx in advance

    Your sound is very good. However the sound that I'm looking for is, perhaps, more simple. It's the sound that you produce when you want to steam up a mirror or a glass with your breath, but processed to be eerier, deeper... the sound of a short burst of wind with a vocal texture.

    I have the sound in my mind! But I can't find an example of it... Nor produce it...

    Thank you very much for your help!

    I am waiting for Bram to reply "did you record it".

    Hey - good job it was the bird that fell out of the tree not you! That's one mean cousin you have there.

    Here's a picture of a brain he can print and practice on! Only kidding - I am sure he's a great guy and I would tell him he was even if he wasn't.

    Hi bram,

    Thanks for the speedy reply. I hadn't even thought it that way. The screencasts will be part of an online user manual, on the company website, rather than separate advertising/promotion per se. Does this help or is it still a no-go area?

    Otherwise, as you say, we can approach individual artists for permission.

    (I'm just keen to use CC licensed work in a visible way. Maybe even get the screencasts themselves licensed, not that I'm sure they have remix potential smile

    Is this kind of what you mean?

    or this

    BTW These are wav files... which are as different from midi as vector graphics are to raster graphic.

    If you want a midi file, I suggest playing with the percussion set in a midi editor until you find a few drums that might work for you.

    I think this particular case is forbidden by the sampling+ license:

    "You may not use this work to advertise for or promote anything but the work you create from it."

    http://creativecommons.org/licenses/sampling+/1.0/

    However, you can always contact the authors of the samples and ask them permission!

    "mercy killing" - although I can see a bit of the logic in that.

    Reminds me of a time when I was a kid - My cousin and I found a baby bird that had fallen from it's nest high up in a tree. I asked what we should do, and he stepped on its head with the heal of his boot.

    "severely killed" - more of an overstatement - seeing as you can't much more severe

    "preventable death" - not sure this is possible

    "awfully good" - this one's pretty bad.. and whoever came up with it should get a good beating.

    Hi all,

    My company will be generating some new screencasts* and I'd like to pitch the idea of using freesound samples for sound effects in the screencasts (e.g. for opening jingles, click sounds, etc).

    Firstly, is this an acceptable use of the licensed sounds? (The license specifically mentions commercial *web*casts being out, but the forum FAQ mentions commerical movies being ok.)

    Secondly, what would the license of the derivative work be (seeing that it is now a screencast - i.e. movie - rather than a sound). Or is it up to us to decide?

    Thanks!

    d@vid

    * Screenshot-based movies of the commerical software in use. (For what its worth, the plan is for portions of the software to be released as OSS.)

    I uploaded a handful of files today. Give a day or so, and they should appear.

    That link appears to do nothing exept bring up a small banner which says "After downloading/listening please leave your comment or rate this sound" and nothing else. When I right click on it it just allows me to save the image of the download button and that's it.

    Strangely when I go to the section where it tells you who has downloaded it my name does appear, but I have not authaurised any download or specified where it should be placed on my computer and the file does not appear anywhere when I do a searh of my computer.

    I'm sorry if I'm missing something really obvious here but nothing has downloaded onto my machine and the link justt doesnt seem to work.

    Right - a dumb expression. Worse still - that stupid expression "friendly fire" - that is friendly that kills!

    Dear all:

    I need the sound where you can hear once you take the picture. But it has to be a midi format and no longer then 2 seconds. 1 second or less is better. Thanks a lot for all of your help.

    Thanks.

    I cannot download anything off the site! The download link simply isn't there. It shows how many downloads there has been of the file, comments, and Find Similar file links and that is all!

    I am fully logged in and using firefox and have checked the FAQ for help but I do not understand!

    Please help!

    Just came on here to download some .wav file formats to sample in REASON 3 and experiment..

    Check out this band called The Dirty Rich at www.thedirtyrich.com or www.myspace.com/thedirtyrich

    They are heavily influenced by drum and bass and sound like a mixture of the prodigy, audio bullies and the punkier side of blur and also the sex pistols.. I went to one of their gigs and it really got me wanting to create some music using a copy of Reason i've just purchased.
