didn't know where else to put this ...
the Blind Cool Tech podcast "provides interviews, brings you along on sound seeing tours, and discusses life and cool technology that blind people can use."
for the past couple of years, I drop in there occasionally because some members post environmental recording,s many of which are binaural, interesting, and very good quality. Neal Ewers, a resident expert in recording, occasionally reviews affordable recording technology and has been known to supply some informative examples and samples.
I'm looking for the sound made by an orchestra director when he hits the stick at the end of the tuning, just before to start with the concert.
Is there someone that could help me?
hope it's any use
I'd like to thank everyone for their considered and helpful responses - unfortunately I'm rushing to get ready for a trip to Amsterdam, and need to get organised for this, but I hope to respond to each of you properly when I get back on Wednesday. In the meantime, some sense of my research and the ideas I'm working with might be gleaned from here:
The search tool is handy: ambiance + exhibition will yield a bunch of samples by digifish and something by myself. And if you search museum + paintings will get a good set of samples by LG.
There should be also some more in my vocal pack, search for hall + my username , then browse results. Hope this helps.
To simply edit audio samples, Audacity is good and free. For a more music oriented sequencing program, you can also try Acoustica Mixcraft, along with Acoustica Beatcraft which offer a free demo. Google them.
Nice I liked the song, was very, well, trancey. But you have to attribute those Freesound samples you used!
here they are
1-bienal arte SP, 1 MD, recorded with sonny mdmzr50 and mic-emc-907, about 600mb
2-also found 1-md recorded at Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona, 2006 (let me take a better hearing at this one)
how can i send it/them to you, if case of interest?
i must have (give me time to find it) a recording at that event, bienalArte SaoPaulo at Ibirapuera.
i´ll check n show you.
This is my first production with Freesound samples, please let me know what you think!
hai am not a profassional but enthusiastic of making music .... want to specialise in ambience....
i need the samples of ambient beats like asian ..... like KRUNESH uses in his works ...... i appreciate everyone work here......
I'm an artist based in the UK, conducting PhD research into the condition (philosophical, theoretical) of works of art whilst they are on display. As part of my research I have been collecting the ambient sounds of galleries and museums. Unfortunately I am unable to go everywhere, and so, if anyone has the urge, I would welcome any field-recordings of gallery ambience/atmosphere. At least one minute's duration, date, place, information about space, works in room etc. is ideal, but anything un-ideal is also fine. Top of my wish list is the Museum of Modern Art in New York, but any and every museum or gallery, no matter how well-known, is of interest.
I've uploaded a few examples of my own recordings. I'm new to these things and would welcome any suggestions as to how to improve recordings. Presently I use a Sharp Minidisc recorder and a Sony ECM-DS70P mic, or an iPod with a Belkin TuneTalk stereo mic adaptor. I use no editing/mixing software, but am open to suggestions - I use a Mac.
Here is the scenario:
I live in the wilderness near a waterfall that is named Singing Falls. It really does sing due to special rock formations and acoustical conditions.
I am interested in recording these sounds but I do not have any equipment to do it. I did a DVD recording of the falls but the singing was drowned out by other sounds. The sound of the singing is that of Native American music.
I am a linux OS user and I have an audigy 2 zs card on board.
Please tell me of a reasonably priced recording instrument that could do the job I am seeking to do and where to get it. Nothing professional since that would probably be out of my price range I am assuming???
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
once quicktime has grabbed the sound, just say "save page as" in the file menu
Voxengo SPAN is another useful FFT based tool, for free and also BlueCat makes a good freeware one.
My girlfriend tried this... hopefully they will be available soon, and useful.

Sorry, i'm new. So, please excuse this thread if it were to be in the wrong forum.
What are good programs/loop sites to get into for free downloads/remixing beats. I have a band and we would like to test around with various beats.
How do I download a sound a be able to use it on my computer in a movie making program? When I left click on the sound it just brings me to Media Quickplayer. and It says RIght Click, Save as on the thing but there is no option for that. Help?
