    In that case I would send a message to the person who uploaded the sound and ask if it's okay to do the attribution in the description of the video and this person will tell. And you're welcome, I hope I could help smile

    Hello all!

    I'm looking for a very specific sound but it already exists, so I hope one of you know what I'm looking for. I'm looking for an alarm sound, one that is used in YouTube videos where somebody sees all the red flags or just screwed up big time and you hear something like "wee hoo wee hoo wee hoo". I haven't found anything like it on Freesound or YouTube, so I hope somebody knows what I'm talking about. If nobody understands me I can provide a voice recording of me doing the sound.

    Thanks in advance!

    1) What do you use Freesound for? (what are your specific interests? what do you do with Freesound samples? ...)

    In my case I'm an animation student creating projects that tell stories. Sound is really critical in telling the story even if it's mostly a visual medium. I also have always sort of loved sound editing from an intuitive level so... I make projects for school, to learn, and to bring to life stories I love.

    2) Do you perceive some shared goals in Freesounds user community? If so, which ones? (is there a sense of community? and of long-term goals to be achieved? ...)

    I admit I don't participate much community wise here... which is honestly sort of ridiculous. I have a sound library too... I really should be giving back to this site since it's helped me a ridiculous amount.

    3) What kinds of sounds are you most interested in? (do you upload and/or download specific types of sounds? which ones? ...)

    Mostly ones that are a bit tricky for me to get myself aka ambient noises of an environment that isn't easy for me to get to or weird things I don't know how to generate digitally. But I also tend to want the pieces as they are before editing and mixing and without other sounds in unless it makes sense. This place is awesome for that. I tend to love sound mixing myself so... this place really gives me the raw elements if you will, so I can start playing around with that and my own sounds together.

    4) What makes Freesound different from other sound sharing sites? (you can compare with sites like Soundcloud, Looperman, CCMixter or others)

    Pretty much what I described in question three. Yet I also find that this place is great because it focuses on sharing and helping each other just because 'Hey, we all need stuff. We can't always get that easily. Let's try and make it a bit easier on everyone.'

    So, as a hobby, I animate every now and then. And after completing a genderbent model (Because female models are easier to deal with and I like having fun with the rule 63 trope) of Thrax from Osmosis Jones, I felt like animating the scene in the sauna, the scene were we see Thrax for the second time since he was revealed and when he establishes the pecking order, with him at the top of the food chain in the city of Frank's underworld.

    Model in question: http://hazama15.deviantart.com/art/MMD-Newcomer-Genderbent-Thrax-671413990

    Scene in question: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFpshq8fCGI

    Thing is, I want to redo the scene with a new voice for him, er, her, to match the fact I made a female model. Unfortunately, as a poor college student, I don't have money to commission anyone so really the best I can hope for is that a kind voice actress with enough time on her hands decides to give this a shot.

    I'm looking for a deep sounding female voice for Thrax in this vid, someone who can match his tone. Someone who sounds a tiny bit sassy, but not in an exaggerated ghetto way.

    To put it simply, someone who sounds African American, as that's the kind of voice actor Thrax had and that was the kind of persona he had going on.

    Here's a script if ya need it:

    https://pastebin.com/8HXwCyFF

    Again, this is mostly just a hobby for fun, but I'm gonna put my all into animatin' it, and if anyone's interested then hey, have fun with it, you know?

    I am a singer and I make my own music videos. I have an intro, but it is followd by several pictures of my company logo, etc that pass by like a slide show at the very beginning of each video. What I am hoping for is a sound that is appropriate for the beginning of a movie so that as these three picures pass by in a matter of a few seconds, that it sounds professional!

    I would be grateful for any suggestions of a few sounds I might want to consider!

    Hi Qalbi,

    before you even use a sound I would advise you to check under which license it was uploaded and also to know what applies to each of them (licenses). It can be the case you are violating the rights for a particular sound and that you simply don't know it. In any case, it wouldn't be that hard for you to check the license for the particular sounds you are using and check if you are doing something wrong.

    Hope that helps.


    Yes I've checked it and one is fine but the other one can be used as well but need to be credited to the owner. I changed all my monetized youtube description to link to the sounds that I used in my videos, I hope this is sufficient or do I have to actually put inside the video itself? That I'm not sure. Thanks for replying.

    I was digging a little more on the subject and have found that publishers are meant to take care for mechanical rights, but I'm still not a hundred per cent sure that I didn't get anything wrong. As I understand, labels and PRO's are meant to take care of performance and selling royalties, while publishers take care for mechanical royalties and also pitching. Is that right? Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    For the question "I use Freesound content..." there was no appropriate answer for someone like myself who doesn't use anything, just adds to it.
    Just as 5 years ago, I think my feelings are quite similar to the ones I wrote last time: Despite that I will continue to upload and moderate as often as I can, I am not sure I'd consider myself part of the community. That said, this is the only website I've contributed to in any way, so maybe there is something to be said for that.
    I also wish that the comments on sounds system was different, so, for example, you could reply to someone as a threaded conversation.
    Anyway, it says I've been here 11 years and 9 months. Thanks for all the work in that time!

    Hey Alexx,

    What you're needing is a voice actor. You might have a tough time finding one here on freesound, though it is possible. To save time for you though, I'd check out sites like https://www.fiverr.com/
    where you can find a decent VA who will record pretty much anything for $5-$10 dollars. Local college actors are usually eager to help for little $$$ as well.

    If what you need is someone to do voice modulation, I'd be happy to lend a hand.

    Cheers.

    You can find quite a few good samples by searching about: http://www.freesound.org/search/?q=glove+flapping

    Don't forget that combining some of these sounds together will also produce some good results.

    Or if you have some recording equipment, find your thickest leather gloves and slap them together as energetically as you can muster and that should produce a similar sound.
