    I agree totally on the idea of Descriptions and Tags for Sample Packs.

    PISHAW!

    just look at the tutorials, and it's pretty easy. Aslo, the program 'chaser' is awesome for making drones and stuff.

    It's seems to be more difficult to understand than max/msp or synthedit, but it also seems to be fun. Thanks for the link.

    Ah well, looks like this won't quite fit the bill either.

    I'll see if I can find a pile of big logs somewhere.

    Hi erdie.
    yes it is useful, but i have to work on them to make them heavier.
    I am looking for a sound which is more heavu than this. This reminds me some thin piece of wood.
    What i have in mind is a fat piece of wood which causes a heavy sound.
    Also it would be great if there is no just one sound but like falling in several others, like you know when you are collecting pieces of wood and you are trying to make a bunch of them and throw them from a little distance. Is it more clear now?

    Anyways, thank you for your help, if you have something more post it here.

    Analog Box 2.36

    One VERY amazing program. LITERALLY, build a syth from scratch. Design a custom circuit including oscillators, knobs, buttons, filters, sliders, midi input, wave in and out, it even hosts VST PLUGINS!

    BUT! I haven't been able to stop since the day I got it, so be careful, it IS addictive tongue

    To extend the original question, if I want to use sound clips in live performances (theatre) how ought to credit those?

    I need a sound effect of bombing from world war two (specifically berlin, but close enough is good). Would anybody have anything suitable :?:

    Hi all. I am searching for the sound of a heavy wood piece ( maybe from a tree, the ones (Ed: logs) you use on the fire) when you throw it on other wood pieces. In other words i am looking for this sound 2 pieces ( or more ) make when you throw the one to the others.
    I would try it by leave the big piece from a height ( 1 meter ) to the others who are on the ground.. My mic is damaged and it needs more than a month to be prepared sad
    And i need this as soon as possible. Please anybody who can help me post a reply here.
    If it sounds weird then a specific heavy ''guuup'' similar to wood on wood sound would be warmly appreciated.
    Thanx very much for reading.

    Its not a clear picture I know...I sometimes wish Freesound would setup a 'music section' for DIY recordings such as this which was not so much performance but recording experiment; However, I know it would get abused immediately, probably by ME!)

    The pic is clear enough once you click on it smile

    I'd like to see a section for experiments too.

    I haven't really run it through a re-read of the CC license, but what exactly would stop people from Torrenting their own local directory of stuff they have downloaded from Freesound? Since it cannot be stopped, perhaps a set of guidelines could be devised to include credit and license info. (Links, etc as well). Control is great, but with such a license it is also totally unenforceable in the long-run.
    .
    I notice that most people torrenting other material are pretty diligent about documenting the release in much the same way as FS encourages. Therefore it might not be an incompatible idea, unless someone knows otherwise...

    I am also intrigued, and never really considered the idea of perma-seed, but it make sense that given the way trackers and torrents work, it isn't entirely supported universally. Perhaps I should bug torrent sites and sourceforge people to make a client that runs on a webserver (freesound.iua.upf.edu perhaps) and all it does is broadcast to the popular trackers the existence of all the Sample Packs. (With an .xml description which automatically contains all the native tags, author, description, freesound source and license requirements)

    I also understand the slipper slope of it all. I think regular fressounders would probably ignore it, but the general population would run across it all in different ways...

    Ok, [disclaimer] this is an experimental idea, please do not flame!
    My prediction for the future is this: Electronic distribution licenses (even whose like CC) will eventually require those who have already downloaded, to share equally with others. The perma-seed need not demand additional bandwidth for freesound itself! Torrents by their very nature allow Brams servers to be the tracker, but point bit-torrent clients to OTHER sources of the same content. It would be cool if individual samples downloaded from freesound could 'know' that they are to automatically share themselves out from any machine that decides to download. Hell, it would still be totally consistent with the license as long as it contained the rules and legal text.
    .
    Thats enough....

    It's a false-positive from an over-zealous protection program for sure. Audacity is about as harmless as it is useful. (ie VERY)

    Its not a clear picture I know, but here is one of my involvements. I assisted with an experiment in stereo microphone techniques. You can't quite see all the scenarios at hand here. Most of those shown here are owned by University of Victoria. The gentleman who was performing all this set up these patterns simultaneously: Coincident XY, AB, ORTF and Crown SASS. I brought enough gear to add Blumlien array and Mid-Side to the picture. The environment was one of the Studio rooms at the University music hall which was large but sounded real nice. A couple of master flamenco/classical guitar players were the subject. If I post them online somewhere I will provide a link for those interested, as I am aware of Freesound policy.

    I bought a Zoom H4 this week. I don't have big expectations for it, except something MUCH more versatile on its built-in mics than my iRiver 120 (The iRiver has the worst built-in mic ever!) and not large enough to use at a show with pro mics and the Edirol R4.

    The construction quality is somewhat budget, but in useability terms, since I'm a heavy BlackBerry user, the scroll-wheel/button combo is actually *very* familiar (Something the online review community hated!). I'll post some examples over the next few weeks for people to hear. I am unlikely to do a 'controlled' test of any kind. Even though the studio is almost complete, I find the best way to test a remote piece of gear is to use it remotely. Something like the H4 will undoubtedly sound like shit if trying to do something serious in pristine conditions.....

    Its too bad you don't dig Jecklin or binaural stuff Erdie. Not everything can be accurate on speakers. The nature of our own hearing is that there is something between our ears. Mono doesn't really exist, and neither does the stereo we hear in loudspeakers. I'll endeavour to put more examples up of my DIY binaural stuff; I'm just partial to the stuff I guess. I only have one Jecklin sample up, and it is admittedly not an example which will change anyones mind on that topic.... I've done about 20 hours of budget DIY binaural, but its all music so far.
    .
    I'll let you all know what I think of the H4 after I've used it for a bit.
