    I uploaded some sounds and geotagged them, there was an issue with some with an error message coming up saying that the value had to be equal to or greater than -180, by zooming out on the map seemed to get rid of the message and I thought all the sounds had been geotagged but when they had been cleared by the moderator the geotags had gone. I tried to geotag them again, but the error message keeps appearing. Am I doing something wrong?
    Thanks Simon

    There are two reasons that render the whole 'free vs non-free' controversy uninteresting to me. Firstly, in my opinion the very concept of freedom is an abstraction created by humans, it is completely irrelevant to the natural world which to me is the only 'real word'. Secondly, even though the concept of freedom is very important to some humans (specially those in early class ages, in which I'm not), in practice human freedom means simply being (or not) able to take decissions: I'll do this but not that. So, if you can make a choice you are free. Simple!

    Freesound users are actually quite free as they can take one of three options: 1) I'll use this sound and comply with the linked condition (the so-called 'license'); 2) I'll use it but wont credit (I don't believe in karma, fu** the license); or 3) I wont use it, there are many other great samples around. Simple!

    But sounds cannot be 'free' or 'not free', they are just sounds.

    Like you would like to see people's responses to your work, the same way the people who contribute sounds to this database would like to see some feedback to their work, that is why crediting is necessary. Anyway you can use any sound privately for free until you make public or commercial use of it, isn't it great ? And you can also edit change the sound until it becomes a new sound.

    Happy Birthday!

    Here is my ditty.

    I plan on maybe posting a pack of samples that I used for this just a bit in the future. I had a lot of fun with it.

    Advertising is not _free_ either and sometimes seen as the single important factor for business success. I.e. if hype helps selling a bad or non-existing product, then the hype you will get.

    Ok, cheers.

    I thought it was just random shading but I can see it is deliberate and representative.

    Paul.

    Hi,

    Within the IMAGE representation of the Wav files as displayed on members 'Sample Pack' files etc, what do the different colours (ie. red, blue and yellow) signify please?

    Ta,

    Hi,

    Yes, I agree. Slicing and lining up loops is more problematic than with single-note files.

    Now is time to stop talking and start recording!

    Cutting single notes is much easier than cutting phrases to loop seamlessly.

    Even if you make some mistakes, that is part of the process and you will learn from them.

    Hi kb7clx,

    You're right, there was a bug preventing users of Safari and Firefox to upload .flac files. Might affect IE users too.
    We have now fixed the bug so you should now be able to upload flac files.
    Thanks for reporting!

    Cheers

    Hi,
    I just want to be sure - you want English sentences with Russian/Eastern European accent, or sentences directly in non-English language?

    Yes, that would be good if the user posted a link to the piece of work in which they used the downloaded music material for. I would be interesting to see how another person might use something I created. I only really ever think about JAZZ but most people would probably use the audio in a totally different context, and if it works for them then that's great!

    Thanks Alien,

    Oh ok, so you mean just LEAVE Cubase recording and make the whole recoding in a single pass. It's only single notes and so it will be unlikely that there will be any mistakes.

    I was over concerned about making each sample (say) exactly 2 x seconds precisely. But are the professional sample packs not absolutely spot-on? Or do you think near-as-damn-it is suffice for most peoples wants and needs.

    Cubase is very much capable of performing the editing tasks required. However, my question was/is more to do with:

    in the "YAMMY" You-Tube piece I linked above, I was not sure how far to zoom-in on the waveform before executing the cut. From a distance, you can easily see the wavy-line where the tone begins, but as you zoom-in, the line is so magnified that I find it indistinguishable as to where the actual sound starts? Hence, I think that was the problem with "YAMMY" in that I made the cuts slight to early/late and so the audio files come in out-of-time!

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Yes, you get an automated email from Freesound when you receive a comment.

    This is not like Facebook or social media where people instantly comment on photos, etc.
    Think of this as being in it for the 'long run'. You sometimes get some really nice comments on sounds that you uploaded years ago.

    The downloads that really count are when people come here looking for ONE sound (or more) for their project. They are looking for specific sounds: a gunshot, a scream, the sound of water, piano chords... whatever.
    Those purpose downloads are the ones that are more likely to end up in a real project.

    So, yeah, you build up your portfolio of sounds then suddenly one day you are surprised to find an email. Someone posted a comment "This is what I needed for my project. Thanks". Or even "I used your sound here: ..." and a link to their music, film, etc.

    Alien,

    Ha ha . . . you were correct about not many folk leaving a feedback about the downloaded sounds! Not one person has so far! lol

    Also, do you know if I will get an email notification from FreeSound in the unlikely event that a member does in fact leave a comment?

    Ta,

    Paul
