I have a request about a recording of a music instrument at high sampling rate (highest as possible, ex. 192kHz ).
I cannot do it myself due to technical issue ( I don't have such equipment! ).
It can be any music instrument or even a speech sound.
For the music instrument it would be really nice to have few single notes and then a chord (if the instrument allows it!).
It should be a plain recording, without any post processing step.
Why do I need this?
I need it for a project I'm working on, it is difficult to summarize it in few lines.
Mainly I need to jump between samples discarding some others; more samples I have more jump choices I can make.
So I really need a signal that has been recorded in this way, not just exported at higher sampling rate.
Thanks a lot!!
As far as I know, audio CDs do not include metadata. Maybe your WMP is automatically searching for the album info on the Internet. That could be why it doesn't show your own CD info (or local artists) but does recognize Eminem's one.
The only way I personally know of showing the track info on a car CD player (for example) is introducing a MP3 CD, not an audio one.
Hope that helps!

Smash it, be my guest ))
Yes you did! How could I forget!
(funny, they did not come up in my search)
Not too keen on the loop that contains percussion. But the koto and shamisen loop is now a very serious candidate for some sonic mutillation... eheheh.
Though I am not Japanese member (maybe in previous life I made a couple of Koto loops and a few of them are still pretty popular, here at freesound.org
I was looking for an older steam siren alarm, I believe it was when a ship was on a collision course it would sound

Here is a collection of articles from Synapse Magazine - Electronic Music and Synthesizers
from 1976 to 1979
did browse some articles and noticed that there are few technical info (vintage of course) and a lot of words about the matter : thus I think it could be interesting only for "aged" electronic music fans. In four words: historical more than technical

There is a program on the internet radio "The Global Voice" which is called "78 decades" and is dedicated to music recorded from the late 1800s to ~1950.
Once I played around with a recording of an old Japanese wax cylinder containing a koto and singing piece.
For dare 41, I am proposing that you take a very old music piece from the program "78 decades" and convert it into something completely different.
You can use other samples and instruments, if you like. But keep these to a minimum. Really the point is to see what you can do with (or from) the old recording.
Here is the link to the program gallery from The Global Voice. Program recordings stay here for a week, before being replaced by the new program.
Just click "78 Decades" and download the last show.
Here some important information about copyright
click "how long does copyright last".
And here, a list of music copyright duration for many countries:
As you can see in the list, music copyright often lasts 70 years. So you really want to be picking a music piece that is older than 70 years, meaning dated 1945 or earlier. In fact, the older the better!
1) Upload submissions to a suitable place (Soundcloud preferred)
2) Please give attribution to any samples from Freesound and also to the original piece you use.
3) Post on this thread with a link to your piece.
4) Deadline: 31st Oct 2015
5) Keep checking this thread for further news (there might be a surprise!). If we have enough entries we will select a winner.

Another great gift, is the "gift of knowledge".
There are fantastic places on the internet to lear from (Freesound, of course, being one of them). Your son can create an account here, post sounds, get feedback and post questions in the forums.
As he gets older, learning how copyright works and what is allowed and not allowed will also be valuable knowledge. - A lot of that is also here at Freesound.
If you want to be an encouraging and (slightly) demanding father, don't go splashing out lots of money. (It is clear from your answers that you won't.)
Instead, make your son work for the next gift. Make him show you what he has learnt so far from the previous gifts before you invest more money on something else.
The advice given previously is great. Allow me to add a bit more, including some practical aspects:
- handheld recorders are great. I have one of the most basic ones (a Zoom H1). - however, before running outside to record, learn this: "the slightest breeze will generate a lot of wind noise and make your recordings unusable.
My advice, before you spend moeny on windscreens, make sure you have exahusted sounds to record indoors (not just in the house, schools, gyms, train stations, shopping malls, coffee shops...)
- If your son intends to play any music onto the computer, he needs a midi keyboard/controler to connect to his DAW. Basic midi controllers can be bought for £100-200 and will be more than enough, especially if they include a few knobs/fadders also.
If you already have a music keyboard, it most likely has a midi connection and can double as a midi keyboard to play stuff inside the computer. A midi/usb interface is really cheap (check ebay).
Later on you can decide if a more spcialized piece of kit (e.g. dedicated to programming drums) is needed or justified.
- To start off with, the PC built in interface will probably be fine. (Download the Asio4all driver!). Later on you can decide if something else is needed, once you know whart you are really after (do you need more ins, more ins/outs or just better audio quality?)
Good luck and happy music/sound making/recording
Of course, if there are any sounds you/your son want to share, feel free to upload here.
(no full music, please. Just sounds. Freesound rules)
Hi there everyone. I hope things go well for you guys and girls here.
I know I've been utterly bad at responding to PM's during the last years. This is why:
I heard in 2013 about an indie movie project in development going by the name of "Hermit: Monster killer", a teenage horror / splatter gore movie. This peeked my interest. I've helped one of the actors with hip hop music for the last 3-4 years. The directors heard my music, and signed me up to produce: Music for a full length feature film! It's scheduled to be released in France during bloody weekend 2016.
I've spent time practicing to compose movie music should I get the job to write the soundtrack for about 18 months. Studying movie music, watching horror / action movies online, looking up music tutorials on youtube to be prepared. I got the job 2 months ago. In one month I wrote over 4 hours of music for the movie.
Now I know I haven't been online much here except for locating samples I needed for the film. I've seen that people has written PM's to me. I simply haven't had the luxury to read all email / PM during this time. At any forums I'm a member in. This has consumed my time, and will do so at least another 7 months. You have every right to be mad at me.
So to all who've written to me asking for permission to use my sounds:
You have the permissions to use any sound I've uploaded here as long as you credit them to Johan Brodd.
I have a question regarding Metadata preservation during burning .wav files with metadata (edited in foobar2009) onto a cd.
I produced some music in FL Studio 11 and I have exported my projects to .wav files.
I intended to make a couple physical copies of this project and therefore I wanted to edit the metadata of my .wav files, so people could see the info about each song when they play it in their car or on their pc as well (in their CD/DVD-ROMs). Then I found out that one does not simply edit metadata of .wav files, so I read some info about it on the INTERNET. Some folks said that if I download foobar2009, I will be able to somehow edit the metadata of my .wav files.
So I did it and I then I used AnyBurn software to burn those edited .wav files on a cd. But when I put it in my CD-ROM and the Windows Media Player (WMP) or iTunes open, in the list it says only:
and so on.
Since this was kinda strange to me, because I do not really understand this subject as I would like to, I decided to check out a few original audio CDs I had at home.
First I tried 2 CDs made by some local (Prague, Czech Republic) artists. In the WMP's list there was only Track01, Track02.. and so on as well as with the CD I made.
Then I inserted Eminem's Encore which I found in my drawer. When the WMP opened, the list actually was made of "Name of the Artist - Name of the song" pattern.
I do not know in which format or with what software was the Eminem's - Encore burned/exported.
If any of you guys could help me, I would be really thankful.
Thanks in advance for any answer.
When I was 8, I asked for a Transformer for Christmas... I got 10 pieces of 2x4 cut into various lengths.
I don't need to build a complex sound booth for him, the replies here are great. Fairly inexpensive and he can give things a try.
Thank you all for the replies!
