    So I can't find any on here (unless I'm not looking in the right spots), but I need some clear high quality recordings of whale songs for a surround sound project at school. It doesn't even need to be terribly long...like no more than a minute, though it can be longer and I can trim it. Does anyone have any that I can use or know of where I can get some? Searches online just lead me to crappy mp3's or to recordings with music in the background. I'm looking for upwards of 88k/24 bit. Can be lower if it sounds REALLY clean. Absolutely no mp3's though...only wav, aiff, etc. Some water noises are unavoidable, obviously, so that's fine. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!!

    Hey

    I am new on this forum and would like some vocals.
    I dont realy have any preferences how they sound i got some ideas.
    But feel free to play with the vocals and bring your own version.
    Nemes wil be noted on the release if you want.
    Unfortenatly I dont got any money to pay i am just a amateur producer.
    The words i put some !!!! marks after are the words before the drop
    Maybe say these sentences with an evil voice.

    Track 1

    Here comes the rain!!!!

    After a period of rain it wil always be followed up with some sunshine.
    This is just like the elders say.

    These are the forces of nature!!!!!

    Track 2

    A great civalization was standing strong then came a storm.

    Destruction!!!!!!

    After the force of nature the people have to rebuild the land.
    And created a new civalization

    A new civalization!!!

    PS sorry for my bad Englisch I am from holland. so feel free to adjust my spelling tongue

    I'd say it's not very common to have control over the buffering process, but I see this can be a problem ... for the moment I guess the only solution is to reload the page.

    Guys, please try not to mix things. This thread was about download speed. Apparently we did have some issues that are difficult to track, with respect to speed. Hopefully should be better now. But the last two messages are about uploading, which would belong to another thread. We had a problem with disk space which prevented uploads (for a short time) about a week ago. Should be good now.

    We ran out of disk space about one week ago, and some sounds that were being uploaded were lost. (see the recent thread). If that is the case please reupload. However, if your ambience recording contained copyrighted music (tends to happen in pubs) it may have been deleted by a moderator, since that would be illegal to share.

    The flash upload may fail some times depending on many factors (flash version, browser, network ...). In those cases, try the plain html upload.

    Hey, Justin!
    I don't know about the NT-4, cuz over here I usually got Schoeps or Sennheiser when I use a mic rig. However I'd say the zep and the Rycote is the way to go, and
    1. I NEVER boost anything, if anything I'd attenuate the low end and boost the overall gain, an EQ should never be boosting any mic'd audio IMHO,
    2. I'm more of a post-pro guy, so I know what I'm talking about - I've seldom come across recordings done with a windscreen/zep that were in need of boost in the Hi / attenuation in the Lo end. And I get a lot of stuff from location recordists that work with Rode mics.

    @ matucha: I most heartily agree with you! However, when I'm, e.g, on a holiday, I can't take along my favored recording rig, the wife simply won't have it! (She already rolls her eyes when I'm sitting in a Vienna coffee house and pull out my H2 to capture some atmo...) Also, the stuff I record with the 552 is usually not mine to share on Freesound (I will ONLY ever post stuff here I can clear as CC0) more's the pity!
    Hi-end is great! And I would always encourage people to aspire to that, after they've seasoned themselves on the H1 or similar.
    But I've had a listen to the stuff you've uploaded, and you certainly know how to rock a field recording, so you're cool with me! smile

    I've just released a 9 song collection entitled "Fantastic Mysteries" and it wouldn't have been nearly so fantastic without the Freesound Project.

    Thank you to all who contribute, and to all who listen.

    As usual, I hate myself for having to give someone the worst votes!
    What wins to me in the Dares is creativity, variety, and that's thanks to everyone.
    If I had to judge on the purely technical aspects and skills, I couldn't even decide the winner, so I've let a totally biased aspect decide: the power of bringing me somewhere, and the "where" itself.

    Even the power alone wouldn't dictate a clear ranking, so I decided according to how fascinating to me the "where" is; that sadly pushed down two great clubby tracks, as that's not where you'd see me on a Saturday night.

    I guess I'm growing old! mon777 spotted it accurately, it's a penchant for deep/dark tones smile

    And now let me hand out some awards to hate myself less!

    mon777: Tech award - as gis_sweden said, it has everything; flawless, and amazingly done in very little time!

    gis_sweden, escortmarius: Nodding award - nod to the beat, don't try to resist it!

    AlienXXX: Plan B award - the description on SoundCloud says it all smile

    Cannonrayj: Ambience award - it's a "where" that can't be left unexplored.

    luckylittleraven: Concept award - "Fascinating." (Spock) "Indeed." (Teal'c)

    luckylittleraven's fascinating concept and development won for me, everyone else deserves a lot more than we're allowed to give... I'll write more in the discussion thread.

    10- gis_sweden. Totally hypnotic and awesome!
    5- copyc4t. Compellingly dark and amazingly put together.
    4- mon777. Addictive beats and heaps of fun grin
    Then because voting like this is difficult in no particular order
    Cannonrayj. So cool it's chilling. Unreal blend of sounds
    AlienXXX. Neat acid sounds and pulsing beat from the samples
    Escortmarius. Cool minimal vibe with lots of delicious glitchy bleepy details.

    Thanks for the dare smile

    10 pts to mon777 : Contains all the classic "techno tricks". Simple. Effective. irresistible... I dont want to vote for this, but I have to wink #ShortWaveRadioTechnoKitsch

    & in no particular order smile
    Cannonrayj : A daring piece. Great orchestrated.
    copyc4t : Dark. Epic.
    luckylittleraven : Atmospheric. Like the fragmented morse code message. I guess you know morse code. The rhythm is right. The pitch change of the morse code fools me... The ear wants to follow the initial pitch :-/
    Escortmarius : The discrete bass drum guides you thru the short wave jungle.
    AlienXXX : I like the rhythm. At 1:26 it changes to "classic" metal rhythm, in my ears.

    Hi folks,

    I uploaded some British pub ambience I had recorded a while back. All standard file size/type/length and with no legal issues. It was in the moderation queue for a few weeks and then it just vanished. Does this mean I have to re-upload it?
