    an other suggestion;

    Send a personal email to his management.

    Tell them that you're disappointed with such a great and proffesional artist. Tell your story.

    Suggest to make a reasonable donation to freesound.org to forget all about it. And that it is not your goal to make monney out of his succes yourself.
    Ask them to be more carefull ussing sounds from freesound.org without credits.

    (I know it is abit of a PLEASE mail but effective I'll guess. In the pat this was succesfull in the past by me. Normaly management do not want to have negative post running on freesound.org that could be copy/past to to facebook/twitter ore other platforms.)

    good luck

    I guess a little google.com research will not be a bad idea. Try this search phrase for example:


    how to import samples into fl studio

    One of the first results is a nice video tutorial.

    Yes that's right he didn't credit me or contact me at all.

    Thank you for answering me, I think I knew the answer really. Such a shame the world has got like this.

    Well I've got a lot to think about because this song has been on MTV and most of the major radio stations. Iv'e counted over 50 million plays across you tube and SoundCloud.

    I'll probably just leave it though... I'll have to think about it.

    Thanks again

    I think what he means is that it was used unattributed without his permission, given that the sound is CC-BY. That is outside of the license terms.

    I could use a CC-BY-NC license in a hollywood blockbuster film without crediting, as long as I got the necessary concrete permission to do so from the author.

    @mushino

    If you are really serious about taking legal action, your only logical route would be to hire a lawyer. Yes it's expensive and you'll have to assess wether or not it's worth chasing this Dillon Francis person or not. We aren't lawyers here, however, I would have said try to contact them and make a demand that you will seek legal action if they do not reply in X amount of time. that seems to ruffle a few feathers, and if they stand to lose then they will oblige. And it's all dependent on the value of this person/song really; they are bound to ignore you at first because you don't appear to be a threat to them. You have to turn the temperature up on the oven in order to get your way, you can't be modest and win at this game, not with a big-time artist like this with a major label backing.

    If you really need to get something back from this then you're gonna have to be 'a dick about it' to use your phrasing. You have limited options here i'm afraid, either be a threat yourself or hire a lawyer to be the threat for you.

    That's the problem with the big vs. small. The violation of the license is evident, but he doesn't need you permission to use the sound (within the license).

    At least make a screenshot of the soundcloud release to have a proof of the violation of the license. Now, depends on what you want: credit or money?

    Came here just to look for this. I like to browse Freesound for all the necessary sounds at once and put them all into the same bookmark before downloading them. Was pretty dismayed to see there was no feature allowing an easy download of all the files in a bookmark folder. I think it would be a great feature that would make organising and downloading files much easier.

    I don't know where the Microsoft Microphone and it's respective software recordings are being saved because i'm on Mac OSX. You need to figure that out using google.

    As for the rest: once you have located the audio file you want to send you can then use an online service to send the file to your friend. I recommend the following sites for that:

    https://wetransfer.com/ - private file sending service

    https://clyp.it/ - public audio file hosting service (like imgur but for audio files)

    https://www.dropbox.com - private (and sharable) file-hosting site.

    I have a Windows 10 Pro OS. High Definition Audio Device(working properly)
    Intel Display Audio(working properly)
    Microsoft Microphone(working properly)
    I get high quality sound from every web site or downloaded program, etc. I use Skype to talk to friends with no sending or receiving problems, distortions, cutoffs, intermittent sounds, etc.

    My hobby team just finished putting together a short 2 minute (actually less than 2 minute) animated test/short film.

    We were in Audio/Foley but some tragedy befell our Sound FX guy and he's no longer available.

    This particular project is strictly a self-taught learning exercise, so it's not like we're looking for a Sound FX god or something. This is perfect if any of you guys do this for fun or want a project to experiment upon.

    It's basically something like "2001 Space Odyssey goes into the Evil Fun House in Space". smile

    There won't be any music so the Sound FX/Foley/Helmet Breathing noises/Space noises.... Those will take centerstage.

    So if any of you are interested, just PM me here or email me at cgipadawan@gmail.com

    It might help telling us what you're recording with...

    Like, what device are you using to capture audio?

    Earlier today I watched a film called Symbol (Shinboru in Japanese).

    Think of the weirdest movie you've ever seen, I guarantee this is much weirder than that. It's worth experiencing, so I thought i'd share it. This is one of those films you just cannot categorise into any genre other than "WTF did I just watch". The sound design of the film is superb actually, I don't want to spoil anything by giving details but I can say that the nature of this film requires careful selection of sound effects to drive the peculiar narrative, so from a sound design perspective it's also well worth watching.

    Enjoy smile

    Hello,

    I'd like to suggest a forum section where users can showcase their samples.

    Of course I ask because I'd love to do just that with my latest loops grin

    http://freesound.org/people/plagasul/packs/21353/

    ...and my not so latest loops:

    http://freesound.org/people/plagasul/packs/15534/

    Two birds, one shot.

    thanks wink

    This is a direct quote from Bram:

    Please don't use the logo, just point to us.

    Using the logo might confuse people in thinking you are representing Freesound...

    - bram

    You can see this quote in context in this thread: http://www.freesound.org/forum/legal-help-and-attribution-questions/39979/?page=1#post88429

    So the answer would be no, please don't do that. smile
