    Hi again. I have created a short survey. I would really appreciate it if anyone who has a job in the cultural industries and does creative commons projects in their spare time could find a couple of minutes to fill it out. Thanks in advance! https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/M8ZP9DW

    Hello,

    this might be a long shot but I am looking for a female voice-over for a short film. The voice-over should be in Norwegian, and in overall medium tempo, as a personal and private address from one person to another. Thank you!

    I am posting both the original text and its translation to Norwegian (although I am sure it has mistakes that Norwegian speakers will recognize):

    And in the morning you said you noticed me waking up and covering you when the blanket slipped from your back. And my hands had to touch your skin even when I was turned to the other side of the bed.

    But at the end, when we stopped at the ruined house and you have put your hand on my chest and told me to breathe... and we started crying... you said it must be because of the place that you cried so hard, that it must have some special powers - weren't you able to see that it was not the place, it was because of us and how strong and close we came together? Those were the sweetest figs I have ever eaten in my life. Oh how you picked them from the three, you rascal you.

    Have I created you, have you existed before I sent the call into the universe? Did my wish, my cry for help materialized you?

    That night, when I held you in my arms, I knew you will never be mine. We do try too hard with the ones we love most, don't we?

    Since then I've learned to love myself... yes you were right, I expected you to give me something I was supposed to provide to myself. And nothing is lost, there are no missed opportunities when we find love for ourselves deep in us.

    Translation to be read:

    Og i morgen du sa du lagt merke til meg å våkne opp og dekker deg når teppet gled fra ryggen. Og hendene mine måtte berøre huden din selv når jeg ble slått til den andre siden av sengen.

    Men på slutten, når vi stoppet på den ødelagte huset og du har legger hånden på brystet mitt og ba meg om å puste ... og vi begynte å gråte ... du sa det må være på grunn av stedet da du ropte så hardt , at det må ha noen spesielle krefter - var du ikke i stand til å se at det ikke var stedet, det var på grunn av oss og hvor sterk og nær vi kom sammen? Det var de søteste fiken jeg noen gang har spist i mitt liv. Oh hvordan du plukket dem fra de tre, Rascal du deg.

    Har jeg skapte deg, har du eksisterte før jeg sendte samtalen inn i universet? Gjorde mitt ønske, mitt rop om hjelp materialisert deg?

    Den kvelden, da jeg holdt deg i armene mine, visste jeg at du vil aldri bli min. Vi prøver for hardt med de vi elsker mest, gjør vi ikke?

    Siden da har jeg lært å elske meg selv ... ja du hadde rett, jeg forventet at du gir meg noe jeg skulle gi til meg selv. Og ingenting er tapt, det er ingen tapte muligheter når vi finner kjærlighet til oss selv dypt i oss.

    Thanks for the examples;

    I did a lot of these in-ear recording and it's not easy to get a clean recording.

    that vague tapping sound has the rhythm of walking. possibly the wires give some noise. I did tape the wire on my body. remark that clouting can make a lot of noise. Wear cotton clothing.

    Thy to make some recordings in a quiet basement of an apartment or empty building on the same level, so it's more easy to find out. what the problem is.

    My guess, the noise is close to you I can not find any interference from high frequent sources ore anything.

    hallo, ich bin Junsn und komme aus Deutschland!

    Ich finde diese Seite super und bin hier schon lange angemeldet. Ich "arbeite" nebenbei als Hobby, an einem kleinen, privaten Kurzfilm,- natürlich mit der Hilfe meiner Freunde.
    Wenn dieser Kurzfilm einmal fertig ist, wollen wir ihn ins Netz stellen... auf Youtube... usw

    ALLERDINGS wollen WIR damit KEIN Geld verdienen!

    Ich benutze hier ausschließlich diese Sounds, die mit "Creative Commons 0" gekennzeichnet sind.
    Disese Sounds sind doch für alle hier frei verwendbar. - Solange sie damit kein Geld verdienen. Ich muss später, im Abspann des Filmes, nur alle meine Quellen von freesound angeben. Stimmt das?
    Habe ich das richtig verstanden??? Oder habe ich etwas übersehen? Ich will keinen Ärger kriegen!
    Danke, danke -

    LG Junsn!

    HI
    I've uploaded 2 files that I think will give a good idea of what I mean. It's easy to doctor, but I'd rather know in case I may be driving them too hard, wearing them the wrong way hell anything could be a variable here!
    In this recording, I had the recorder in my left pocket, the microphones were set at about level 70, low sensitivity. The microphone cable was not clamped or restrained and even when I did that it still did so. I was walking through the Jenson Beach mall with some stores around me.
    Here are the recordings.
    Unprocessed raw audio wav
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/95411135/walking%20through%20mall%20undoctered%20version.wav
    And the processed version, which gets rid of it somewhat
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/95411135/walking%20through%20mall%20doctored%20version.wav
    Feel free to use whatever version however you like, they will be uploaded here soon.

    @uFXloops. Thx for your answer about when loops starts. The "ascii graphics explanation" was great, see https://www.freesound.org/forum/dare-the-community/35496/. I used 15 samples that where 15, 10, 8, 4 and 2 bars long. Not a good idea smile The program did what it should, but it was hard to keep track of when to start the right loop.

    Hi gis_sweden,
    thank you a lot for the feedback. I guess that other users might have the same problems in understanding when a sample starts playing in the soundboard, and I could imagine what you mean by 'it's hard to explain'.

    Let me try an explanation how that works:
    uFXloops is automatically determining the next startbar for a slot according to its bars.
    Imagine you have already a slot playing which is sixteen bars long, and is currently playing in bar 5.
    Now you start another 16 bars slot.
    What is happening is, that the second sixteen bars slot has to wait, until the end of the loop of the first one is reached. uFXloops "thinks" that loops should always be synchronized in that way, that one of the next loops will play them synchronized together.

    This is indeed different if you have a sixteen bars slot playing in bar 5 and start a four bar slot at the second slot. This time, uFXloops would start the second slot at bar 9, see this litte 'picture' how it works:


    CurrentBar:.................*
    1. Slot (16 bars)...X|X|X|X|X|X|X|X|X|X|X|X|X|X|X|X|
    2. Slot (4 Bars)....................X|X|X|X|X|X|X|X|
    ....................................* (2nd slot starts playing at bar nine)
    ............................*(User clicks 2nd slot in the middle of bar five)

    So the trick is, if you want a slot to start earlier, try to keep its bars low. Use long loops for loops that need to run long (e.g. a guitar solo, lyrics). And if you have slots with high number of bars, start them at the beginning, together if possible. And try to avoid slots with "uneven" bars, e.g. use 0.5,1,2,4,8,16,32 bars for slots, they will have best results as they can be synced very nicely.

    I'm not sure if this is the right post to discuss that further, but maybe some admin could move it then to the discussion thread.

    Best regards
    Andreas

    The sound of silence isn't so golden, and it’s been proven that ambient noise is an important antecedent for creative stimulation.

    Why this is awesome: background noise/video generator for improving the performance on creative tasks by prompting abstract thinking.

    What are you thinking about it?

    Now I have made a … beat-ish with uFXloops. Works fine and is stable (on my Sony Experia V). Easy to import sounds/loops from dropbox (I used dropbox).
    I used quite long loop/samples. That is 8-15 bars in 120bpm. When I push a sample it’s hard to know when it’s going to start playing. Hard to describe… Even if I used the track number function. Next time I will use shorter sounds.
    The mute function is great. At some point “strange things happened” with it. But that disappeared when I restarted the program. It’s great to be able to pan the sounds in the mixer. Maybe I miss a filter function but pan wins.
    I compare uFXloops with Launchpad for iPad. Launchpad have a filter function and that’s nice. But uFXloops if more “open”. Great program. I thought it should be a tough program for a smartphone but nope. Works fast and stable.
    Next time my sounds are going to be shorter. I will try to edit sounds in the app and include recordings made via the mic.
    I have never used the ogg format. Don’t know anything about it.… But for me it’s good enough.
