Kiai, right. I used to do Jujitsu, I might be able to muster one up. I'll put that on my voice recording session queue, but I'll have to wait for my sore throat to get better...
When my suite mate Jack gets back for spring semester I can also ask him to try one.
I have a wierd steel string guitar that was tuned to play an open E at some point, and can be played like a steel guitar by using a slide I made from a PVC pipe. It sounds vaguely hawaiian. The next time I'm home I will try to get a recording of it, but that probably won't be for a few months.
Oh wow, can you post that? A good air raid siren gives me chills (like the one in the intro to Red Alert 2.)
I reccomend listening to harri's house of horror vol. 1 which features some gruesome melon carving action. Maybe combine it with a swish (2, 3, 4) and mix it in Audacity.
Also, check through the related sounds and relevant tags to find more good samples.
Probably no point to posting this since it's been featured on the front page, but
http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=9432 is a nice creepy scream.
Wauahaha! Mike at his best right here. I'd try myself but there's no way to top it.
Dare I ask what you're going to use this for, flowers?
I'm making a queue of things to do at a voice recording session, I'll add this too.
Hehe. Might also try a remix with the generic greeting: http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=26342
Thanks for posting this! I'm sorry that I never got to record it, I was busy with my studies and didn't have time to go to the rink.
Cool! Dramatic and realistic.
But I want to make an epic one that sounds like Jack Black in "karate" from the Tenacious D show.
Kyle, nooo! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY? (echo).
I'm planning to sit down for a short voice session soon, dunno if you'll be able to use it or even want it. But I'm gonna do it anyway.
There's a certain tone that's used. I made it before to use in a blooper reel, I forget what frequency is the standard. I'll goof around a bit if i have time, and also work on those cut/action things when I sit down for a quick voice session.
Fantastic stuff Eco! I especially like combo4 and filtbonesallinone.
I made a similar sound effect for a film a few months ago by slowing down the sound of cracking pasta. Dunno if you still need it but you can find it as neck_crack_pure.aif, or neck_crack.wav with an added swish to make a complete "ninja neck snap" sound effect.
Check out this past request:
Also, here is a nice 11-second sample which I think may be just what you're looking for:
Cool, yeah. Maybe not "amazing".
An open-source, professional-grade crossplatform DAW would be an "amazing" find. (Dunno if ardour counts)
One poster to the blog sums it up nicely:
This list would be much more useful if you gave some indication of which platforms the software supported.
The assumption that everyone has a PC is particularly invalid in the music world.
I gave up after three sites -- where I clicked on your description, clicked on the article, and went wandering through the site until I finally found some hint it only supports Windows.
Nice idea, I like it. You'll have to talk to bram about implementation...
What is crossdomain.xml? Do you have a link to a specification?
The royalty free paid download/sample CD is an excellent idea soundhead... I proposed something similar for freesound itself not too long ago.
It's totally fine to use freesound as a promotional vehicle, as Andrew Duke and others do. We even have a whole forum dedicated to showing off works made with freesound.
If it's an official binary downloaded from an official sourceforge mirror there probably isn't anything to worry about. I forget if audacity uses the nullsoft install system on windows, but many antivirus programs mistake nullsoft installers (NSIS) for trojans. We had the same problem with vegastrike... just reinstall audacity and ignore the "pest alert". Maybe read the report more closely too if it comes up.
I think that the legal code is pretty clear on the advertising clause. If you make a song with a freesound sample and play it in a commercial for your album, you're fine. If it's in a car commercial (unrelated product) you violate the license. This license was constructed for musicians who want people to sample their songs, but wish to retain the ability to charge for licensing their music for ads and such, which for some is a major source of revenue.
