    It is hard for me to put into words, but basically I give back because Freesound actually changed my whole life and career so I owe them that.

    Pretty much what others have said.

    I just want to leave the world in a better place than it was when I came into it. And if someone does something with one of my uploads that makes them, or who knows, someone else happy, it’s worth doing. Some of the sounds I’ve uploaded that took all of thirty seconds to make have been downloaded hundreds of times, so I’m hoping at least some of those people had fun.

    At the same time, I enjoy this sort of sharing economy. Of course, lots of people just download sounds and don’t upload anything, and that’s fine, but if I ‘take’ something from the Freesound community, I want to give something back. Open source culture isn’t some kind of scary communist revolution by stealth. It’s the oldest social contract in human history: scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours. I find Freesound a new and interesting twist on the old idea of sampling and making new sounds out of something else. (On top of that, you won’t get sued.)

    I also enjoy the FS community itself. Many tracks of mine have been inspired by samples I’ve found here. Any community where creative types can all share with and learn from another is one worth participating actively in.

    I continue my Novakill VST test series with the BALLTEARER 1-osc and the killerGATE+ effector which I coupled together with two already built-in retail FX VST's in Native Instruments MASCHINE host software.

    My setting/presets:

    My sound sample:
    http://www.freesound.org/people/Zetauri/sounds/277251/

    BALLTEARER can create smoother basslines than PISSCUTTER which is more aggressive, raw and noisier. For my alien sound productions I certainly prefer the BALLTEARER, because I can create more trance-like basslines with it which are more pleasant to the ears but still have that distorted and acidic texture to it. I think when you compare my two samples ("AlienKiller_Basslines.wav" and "DarkThrillerLoop_J8.wav") with each other you can hear the fundamental difference between PISSCUTTER's and BALLTEARER's oscillating sounds.

    In this test session, however, I had the most fun with the killerGATE+ effector! Filtering and playing a sustain bass or any sample for that matter through a rhythmic gate in various speeds (divisions, "slices") and a custom programmable 32-step sequencer is a very useful feature for electronic synth music, electro and trance. In its feature setup the killerGATE+ (coded in 2005) is a very unique and rare VST-plugin to this day. In addition to the mere gating of sound input the Gate VST also comes with its own filter, LFO, distortion and I/O mix capabilites. You won't find anything similar to that effect in FL Studio or NI Maschine, for example. In my opinion this type of complex Gate Effector VST should be made standard in any professional sound and music production software. I put the killerGATE+ definately to the collection of my permanent installed FX VST's which I'm going to use on a frequent basis.

    And ofcourse the BALLTEARER will stay in my collection of "Most Useful VST-plugins" too. smile

    My Rating: 9/10

    I could give this a score of 10 out of 10 points, but I'm still looking for an even better gear setup with Novakill's VST's...

    Great question! Why do artists give away their paintings for free sometimes? Why does my friends aunty give away her pasta sauce? Depends on a lot of things including the person I guess. Some people just wouldn't give anything away and that's their right to not do so. When I make a cake I give most of it away, don't even like cake much myself. I guess it feels good when you make someone happy from something you have created, whether you know about it or not.

    Personally for me and freesound it started when I downloaded a CC0 sample for myself. I felt like giving back so I uploaded one (http://freesound.org/people/djnicke/sounds/208759/). That's it really! I agree with what Headphaze said too. For me making a sample or a loop doesn't take a great deal of my personal time. If I am making samples I am usually making them for myself anyway and making 20-50 at a time so it's really no bother if I spend an extra 5 mins uploading some here!

    I'm not a hippy but I hate giving my money to the man. Lots of stuff we have to pay for should be free (another story for another forum). An old friend once said to me "You are going to leave the world eventually, you should leave something for the world before you go". If something costs me no more than my time I got no issue giving it away for nothing. Thanks for your great question!

    Hi Jack. The project is complete and the artwork has already been sent to the company, but I was wanting something futuristic. Not over the top. Nothing flashy. Just a subtle font that would fit in with a background that had Space in the foreground and Earth at a distance - as if traveling away from it.

    Ended up taking copyc4t's suggestion and did it myself with Gimp. Couldnt find any tutorials on the style font I was looking for, but winged it anyway. Turned out to require more time than I had, but finally finished it! Needless to say, I'm no graphic designer.

    Hi there, I'm making a surreal horror RPG-style game and I'm in need of many types of voices for NPCs such as:
    -Police officers ranging from 20-60 years of age
    -Doctors, nurses and patients of all ages
    -Civilians, shopkeepers, etc

    I only need voice clips and not spoken lines! Here's what I need:
    -Sighs (happy, sad, angry, and worried)
    -Grunts
    -Gasps
    -Screams
    -Whimpers
    -Laughs
    -Coughs
    -Etc.

    I need a good amount of voices for this (there's a lot of NPCs), so if you are even thinking of recording a few, please do so! You'll be credited appropriately.

    If you're interested in looking at my project, take a look here: http://pakilusin.tumblr.com/
    Thanks!

    I know I didn't add them. I'm going to add the credits to the sounds I used in the video description and in future videos in the video itself. I think in the next video I also used sounds you made, don't worry you'll be added and commented then wink
