    LOL....

    Socialists?

    As you can read.. I was asking if it was legal. If I did not care I wouldn't have asked.

    Also, just a note since you said it, if someone takes "advantage" of a "loop hole" and the law changes that person can't be tried for something they did when it was legal (I think before you state something as a fact you should check into it). That principal is basic law.

    As for giving away the items... Obviously you haven't "given them away" you retained rights to them. So please use the term correctly (unless when you "give" things "way" you tell people that you still own it).

    I have no problem with you "giving away" anything, even if it isn't really. But I do have a problem with whining if someone asks.
    If it were truly given away then the attitude is "do as you want with it, I knew what I was doing when I gave it away", not like so many of the liberal elites we have (and plenty of conservative elites) who "give things away" as long as you do what they want.

    Hey, like I said I have no problem if the stuff on this site isn't "FREE" or "Given Away", all I was saying was make it plain instead of putting it in terms of "free use" like so many sites do (until you read the fine print).

    Also, There is absolutely nothing wrong with someone taking stuff that were really given away (free) and using them to make a profit. This "why should you make money on someone elses work" is whining... No one forced the person to give it up. So if you do (really do) then accept your decision and don't put others down because you react on feelings.

    Now Im not going to argue this. It is simple and plain.
    I have no plans to use any files of this site since they are obviously under a license that doesn't make them truly free.

    I agree vehemently with Sonic Sculptor. When I offer something for free, in my case, songs; I do so in an attempt to fight against the greed out there that keeps us all from prosperity.

    It was great to have the Google award but it is even better to have Bram on board to work again on the Freesound code. When we started the project three years ago we had no idea that it would become such a great tool for so many people. Now it is our responsibility to keep up with the wonderful community that is contributing and maintaining Freesound and we will redo quite a bit of the software supporting it to make sure that it can keep up with the current and future activity on the site.

    Thanks Bram for accepting this new challenge!!!

    Thanks for this idea.

    The sound is needed as an lead-in to, and termination of, daily meditation. I'm at the beginning of the Sounds learning curve and don't have dedicated sound equipment or software (yet!), just a laptop. I want to take a gong sound and "glue it" to an MP3 file of 15 minutes pure silence and then "glue" another gong file on the end. Right now I'm trying to work out how to create a 15-minute MP3 file of pure silence. I tried recording a file with my laptop without the microphone plugged in but there is some faint but irritating background noise, presumably from the laptop electronics or the cooling fan. I'm wondering if there is an amplitude parameter in the MP3 file which I can set to zero (= silence) and, if so, how I can edit that parameter. Then I have to find out how to glue the three MP3 files together - presumably just a question of finding some simple editing software. Watch this space, as they say.

    after gridirons "explosive" outburst i wasn't going to say anything.. I guess I feel a little burnt after being lectured on my netiquette - REAL glad I took the time to respond and share a technique I have used on many films.

    Is that anyway to talk to people who have helped you - Do you have any idea about etiquette? Obviously not -

    or basic manners? How about " I don't have any sounds I'm happy with right now but perhaps after playing with my sampler I might put a few experiments up so you guys can comment or help me make better....

    That would be a better way to start any discussion on sound...

    Sonic sculptor pointed out Grid's other posts...

    Hmmm - He DOES say he is a good sound designer - so must have designed something? - or You have never designed sound... HMMMM????

    has many requests - for nearly 3 months. And yet no contribution ???

    I'm thru wasting any more of my time with the impolite and ungrateful

    To stop people with ideas like you MJ.........

    Perhaps contributors to this site should be given more options of how their samples can be used. If there is potential money to be made out of them, then the site owner should get a lesser cut than the creator....,

    Also MJ, the law does change, and if you find and exploit a loop hole and all complain, you will be very poor...

    Just to add to martians arguement.....

    Griddy, according to your response to the BIOSTEAM gig you suggested that you are a good sound designer. So are you just paranoid of people stealing your work or selfish?

    I know that this is not quite possible yet, but there seems to be extensive research going on regarding reducing or eliminating the effects of reverb from recordings. Has anyone here seriously looked into this. I have read various papers about inverse filtering and beam forming, but was wondering if anyone has any experience with it?

    Have you ever tried recording the beeps your PC makes when it has no sound card? Ok they are not that good but closer to what you what. I have never tried this but it should be easy to create. For a start they are electronic sounds, created from a chip, and i believe what you looking for will be very close to a square wave (think about it, it's an alarm...on/off/on/off/on/off). So start with a square wave generator and then first try playing with the pitch and EQ. If it is still not quite trying adding sum FM or if you have the tools (Z3TA) waveshaping. This will create a less standard square wave. Depending on the sound you want, you might need 2 sounds, one at a lower pitch to the other annd then alternate between the two. Once you have the basic sound you want, worldise it... wink

    You can create the builds of thunder by using a noise generator, EQ and thoughtful use of envelopes

    On a serious note though,

    I have tried this before, but not really pursued it. What I tried out was bashing some things in our celar, and having the mic a little too close so that it distorts a little. The cellar was good because of the reverb tail, which IS important. Also think what your blowing up - if it's a building your going to need rubble landing etc.. If you haven't got access to a mic, then try playing with noise generators, envelopes and EQ, and maybe some pitch shifting.

    Anyhow, asides from martians point, you have not made any suggestions of how to do this yourself....
