I am an "early music" enthusiast, sometimes described as an "historically informed performance" enthusiast, my interest is in the historical details of music, and I found Freesound while looking for some sound effects to help complete a sound picture.
I have a musical blog on Blogger.com under my username of Kittybriton.
Welcome to the FreeSound Project.
This seems to be the happening place.
#1 sound site in my opinion.
Hope you enjoy.
