    It seems like it would be easy to add a counter to the display for each sample listing how many times the sample has been played. Maybe you thought of this already and rejected it, but if not it would be kind of interesting.

    Could you create a link between this text
    Additions in last 48 hours...
    and this uri
    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/latestUploads.php
    so that when I come to the site I can click on the text and be able to browse the newly uploaded files.

    And I have a question about the other link, the RSS feed.
    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/rss.php
    Can I just set this up as a server in my newsreader (Pan), or do I have to do something special like using an RSS reader?

    Thanks for all your work in creating and maintaining this site.

    Mark Nelson at oreillynet.com has written a bunch of great reviews comparing various field recorders, including the PCM-D50 and the H4. He even includes audio of what they sound like both the built-in mics and other mics.

    Click on the "articles" tab and check them out. They're great reads.

    Hope this helps,

    Yea but as far as I know people don't go to soundlantern and make freesound accounts and post about how great freesound is. I mean they managed to draw me in just fine without posting in any forums other than their own...

    and I'm going to have to agree with sanus I love it here at freesound... Home sweet home...

    nice! im drooling digifish!
    i had the pleasure of using the r-4 last week, and was pretty impressed with it.
    i noticed though that the new r-44 does not have the same selector for line-level or mic-level switch, located just below the analog input terminals, as the r-4.
    i was planning on interfacing a sound devices 442 mixer on the r-44 to hopefully further improve the quality and versatility. is this advisable, or is it good enough as direct connection?

    thanks!

    mark

    Hi Mark,

    the R44 has a variable (9 step?) sensitivity adjustment from Line to Mic levels (outer ring on the front 4 knobs) and then a trim for each level (inner ring). Whether or not the internal mic-pres are good enough will depend on the mic and sound you are recording. I am really not sure at the moment how the internal mic-pres compare to a Sound Devices MixPre that I have been using. I have been experimenting (one evening only so far) and think the main differences come at the upper end of the gain, MixPre is quieter. But I plan do do some objective comparisons soon...stay tuned...

    one failing of my RC09 I feel is the LCD in bright light ( read daylight ) i don't know is it my unit?

    so this a totally different kettle of (digi)fish to the rc09 - which has (kindly put) average pre-amps?

    I am feeling gear lust when I look at it.....

    how u feel it is for film production sound?

    looking forward to your post!

    I am currently working as Audio Production Manager For Cambridge University and Anglia Ruskin Student Radio (CUR1350). We are a volunteer based organization currently broadcasting on AM and online at www.cur1350.co.uk
    We are currently overhauling our bed and jingle database and need volunteers to record voice overs in the radio style. We currently have some voice over artists but i have found some fantastic voice samples here on freesound and hoped i would get some good results!
    If you can record the voice overs in as high quality as possible and then post them up. I can let you know if they get used in a jingle or bed.
    I understand not hearing the backing music makes it hard to know how to say phrases but if you can do various ideas we can adapt them to the music we compose. We are looking for voices which adhere to our Brand image which is Professional, Authoritative and Confident, but still retaining the Student air of Fun. Both female and Male voices are needed.
    None will be used for commercial use only for CUR based jingles and bed's.

    Below i have given examples of phrases to say.
    Examples

    'CUR1350 (pronounced 'See You Are Thirteen-Fifty')'
    'CUR1350 Radio'
    'Cambridge University and Anglia Ruskin Student Radio'
    'CUR1350 News'

    any combination of the above in various rhythms and voices would be perfect.

    Thanks,

    With the DIY piezo discs I have now I miss a wider freq range and above all a good low freq response that seems would be resolved with some of those.

    Please, tell me about your experience with any of those in particular or with other mics and these kind of recordings in general, which preamps do you use...tricks... whatever....

    Your LF response will be sorted by using a high impedance load. The average plug-in-power mic input is about 7k, which is waay too low to give good results with a piezo, which looks like a voltage source in series with about 15nF capacitance. Sometimes it is good to experiment with mass loading on the other side of the piezo disc (not in cotact with the sounding surface). Very carefully - the ceramic is brittle smile

    Film is probably better than ceramic, as the ceramic discs are designed to have large resonances around 2-5kHz. You can help that with damping the noncontact side, but you lose sensitivity

    hi digifish. did your unit arrive already? hows the quality?

    thanks

    mark

    I am actually quite blown away by it. Much more solid than I expected, the mic preamps are likewise much better than I was expecting (excellent).

    I will post up some comparisons between the R-44 and Sound Devices MixPre mic-pres soon

    Must be preferences then, because it happens as soon as it's plugged in. Even before Audacity or anything else is running.

    Pretty basic I know...but the effect is awesome isn't it? I've been experimenting with different reverb plugins to get different textures.
    Try using SIR, GlaceVerb, Kjaerhus Audio "Classic Reverb", Ariesverb, or any interesting reverb effect you find out there.

    Enjoy!
    -Dan


    Or try convolving with sounds other than normal reverb impulse responses; can also be fun.

    ^^
    Good call! That's a cool thing you can do with SIR, especially with drum reverb and adding cool textures from other drum kits.

    To whom it may concern:

    While I am excited to meet the aforementioned judge panel javascript:emoticon('weirdhock:'), I am in reluctance to supply additional sound bytes until given the go-a-head on the composition of additional "dino bytes" or dinosaur sound bytes. I hope I am making myself clear on this issue. javascript:emoticon(':idea:') Perhaps a little more elaboration on the qualifications endeavored for this competition will aid my "dino bytes" directive. In other words, can I send in my latest dinosaur sound files for this competition??? Than You for you time: )
