    Oh dear, I'm off me* head "nice to hear from from" I just looked at that (I won't edit) From is a funny word when you look at it more than once. I usually only sing in my sleep. Quote: "trouble runs, far away, in the night", but I'm taking this thread way off topic, so I won't post here again. Speak with you later Wibby on some other thread, but I must have restrictions. I know I'll hate myself tomorrow for posting this nonsense.

    Fade, eq, gate, experiment. Find your own way is my advice.

    Hahahaa.. I sure get that!! in fact my left ear and right ear tell me different things with the same speaker - and the last job I did before I retired was designing the electronics for Quested Studio Monitors! But you're right; when you listen to speakers you're really listening to the room so everyone's experience is different. (and I only sing in the bathroom when no one is listening.)

    Hi Wibby,

    Sometimes it's a creative choice. By that I mean even if I want an abrupt ending I'll still fade out 100 or less milliseconds to avoid a pop or click. Sometimes I forget of course (too much to drink).

    I'm by no means a technical person, but I do use some high-end software, mainly Ozone 4 as it's most intuitive. I never fully understood compression, expansion or gating until I started using this software. Saying that, I won't upgrade to newer versions as they don't offer anything I need, and actually have a worse interface.

    I used to be a painter/artist (of no significance of course) in the 80s and early nineties, but completely lost interest by then. It wasn't until 2000 thanks to my then partner when we got our first home PC that I got into the audio stuff, and I've been hooked ever since. Before that I was using awful tape dictation machines for recording, mainly for sleep talk and for sounds at work in factories.

    I'm a bit of a budget man myself. I do miss my old Sony M10, but I'm not forking out £250 again, and now possess a Tascam DR-05 V2. Not great and some recordings do require some hiss reduction, but I'm happy enough with it for the price.

    You're right, I am ears, - albeit old and tired, but it can be hard when speakers and headphones tell you different things. How does this sound to someone else? Questions etc.

    Anyway, I'm rambling now.

    Nice to hear from from.

    Regards,
    TRT

    p.s. I'm a naughty boy!

    I was a bit lazy to use decibels, which are a ratio without a reference, to describe signal levels, so before I get told off by the Freesounders who understand this stuff, let me add the reference usually used in digital audio where 0dB is the maximum level before the signal clips. So -60dB(full scale or clip) would be 1 million times less power than full headroom, and -70db(clip) would be 10 million times less power.

    Actually worrying about this numbers stuff is a complete waste of time - just turn the monitors up and decide where the signal is getting lost in the noise.

    I won't take offense if anybody corrects my assertions. I went to school a long long time ago in the days of thermionic valves and 600ohm transmission lines!

    Wibby.

    Hi toiletrolltube,

    I used to be an analogue audio electronics designer, first in 1980's with Midas mixing consoles and later with a company I co-founded called BSS Audio, so my experience is purely technical. I'm not a real "sound man" at all, but I did learn to relate "what-I-hear" with the theory and measurements on my test equipment. At the end of the day it's what your ears tell you that's important, and the "measurements" simply give clues as to what might make things (even) better. I've listened to great recordings on Freesound that were made with competent but middle-of-the-road gear that knocked spots of stuff made on esoteric high end equipment. That's because one guy (on a budget) knows how to use his ears and the other other guy (with the money) just trusts the "specifications".

    I figure you're an ear man, and decibels aren't that important.

    Regards, Wibby.

    Wibby, that's always one that gets me every time: how long/short to make the fade (even/mostly with unnatural sounds) 1 second 2, 4, etc. Fade is however very important in a freesound sample and often overlooked. Thanks for your advice, I'll try to figure out the dB smile. Maybe you're coming from a different audio perspective, I don't know.

    Hello There!

    I'm trying to create a police scanner for a game background. I've written a script, with some chatter on Police frequencies, and I was wondering if I could find a few good souls around here to read it (with a little acting) out for me (American english accent would be preferred, as it is supposed to be in New York), so I can cut it out from the different versions and recreate several voices (I believe there's more than one cop in NYC).

    Script is in two parts: "basics" with some more or less common situations, and "trolls" which is a collection of private jokes about all those on collaborated on this.

    R stands for Radio and O for Police Officer.

    Available here: Police Scanner Script

    That would be fantastic!
    Thanks in advance

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a sound effect which I believe certainly is somewhere on this site. However I can't describe it in words properly so I could find it. (English is not my first language)

    The good thing is - I have a recording of that sound. I just need a free version which I can use in my video. The sound can be heard at the very beginning of Pictures of You by The Cure (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-56h8d3gLgk). It's the chimey / wintery sound that can be heard in the first seconds, before the guitar and drums enter. I'm not sure if it's an instrument, or if it's a synth. It reminds me of a wind chime, or a xylophone sound.

    Name, link, or anything that would help me describe it appreciated!

    Do I need to attribute somebody who's sound is using the sampling+ license if they do not tell me how to attribute them? I know this sounds like a dumb question as it says right there on the license page I have to attribute them but it also says "in the manner specified".

    I'm really asking because there's two sound effects I have that I have in my songs ready for commercial release, and while I know I got the sounds from here, I cannot for the life of me find them again to credit the owners. They're also not in my recently downloaded files.

    I do know the sounds were under the Sampling+ license, but that's the extent. Some help would be awesome.

    WOW! That is better than I had I hoped for and many versions to boot. Perfect and thank you so much. It will start being used "Hopefully" This week! Not sure which one yet, but I leaning towards the second one. I will also give you a shoutout on the podcast for efforts! Thank you again.

    -Ron

    BTW the podcast is: http://ronsamazingstories.com - We are also on the radio each week.

    Why?

    I sometimes, nope, rarely do post here to provide sounds to people who want to use for their videos. (The last one was posted on October.) But if I were to do so, I could have done on commons.niconico.jp, which no ones here may know.

    Hi klankbeeld,

    I'll pm you to get the ogg file. I'd like to test what happens.
    Thanks for reporting!

    As it's an attribution license, the only big thing you need to credit is the original creator (the user that uploaded it), and preferably a link to that sound.

    How you give credit is really up to you.

    For example, in the descriptions of my sounds I suggest this format:
    "Waterfall, Small, B.wav" by InspectorJ of Freesound.org

    But you could re-write that however you want, for example:
    InspectorJ: 'Waterfall, Small, B.wav' - http://www.freesound.org/people/InspectorJ/sounds/365921/

    You could put something like that in the video description, or as text at the end of the video.

    So really, it's up to you how you give credit, but just make sure to include the name of the original creator, and also preferably a link.
