    Needing male shouts


    I am making an orchestral piece with Viking/norse mythology influences. The song is going to be "action packed". Lot's of drumming, horns and metallic sounds. The final song is going to a competition at AudioDraft.com so, I need the files to be free to use in commercial work or CC0 if possible.
    Now I'm needing some Male shouts. War type of shouting. The more shouts the merrier. 10 different or so could be enough.

    Examples:
    Ha
    Ho
    Rrrah
    Huaah
    or whatever you feel natural to shout.

    And for the sake of everything sounding messy when piled together, do another shout that is "Hah", from low D or A if possible. D2, D3 or D4, or the fifth A2, A3 or A4.

    For the feel you can listen the Skyrim theme http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-_g8NZr1tA

    Aaaand when recording do not record close from the microphone. 1-5 Meters away is ok, depending on your mic. Also check that the room reverb does not sound too much, because I add the reverb later myself.
    The file should be 44.1Khz 24-bit .wav file.

    The best result would be if someone could get a bunch of people to do these so I wouldn't need to do much tweaking with lot's of files.

    Thanks and ask if you have any questions.

    I loved these kind of chants since I first played Populus 3.

    Both require attribution.

    Copyleft, can't use unless song can be released under GPL2+ or CC-BY-SA 3.0+

    You might find some more by searching for "chant" or similar terms and using "sort by length, shortest first". Let us know if you find anything! smile

    Hope somebody feels up to the task of fulfilling your request. Perhaps you could clarify if you will be able to give credit to voice actors.

    Timbre, do you write anywhere about how you remix voices? You seem to be doing that a lot with interesting results.

    This is fun and therapeutic, so join in people! It would be inspiring to hear some female warrior voices too. I am just a bit worried about making my neighbors being annoyed by my shouting smile .

    I'm glad that this is fun for you guys grin The final song is going to a competition at AudioDraft, so I'm not sure how the Attribution works in the competition field. I'll edit these to the first post so we'll avoid misunderstandings smile

    Audiodraft seems interesting. Thanks for the tip!

    The attribution requirement of CC-BY3, CC-BY-NC3 and CC-Samping(legacy license), which are 3 of the 4 licenses in existence on Freesound, mean that when uploading your work that uses sounds under such licenses anywhere you need to include a list of names of authors who made the sounds you use and also include links to their profiles on freesound.

    This also means that anybody who uses your work (in their game for example) would have to include all these credits in their work somehow (probably in-game credits GUI 'page').

    Also note that http://www.freesound.org/people/djgriffin/packs/825/ is licensed under a non-commercial license, so these sounds cannot be used for creating a track for a commercial competition, unless you get explicit permission from the copyright holder.

    If you require the ability to both use for commercial purposes and are not able to make sure that credits will be given to sound authors, you can still use sounds licensed under CC0, which you can identify via this icon: or the text "This work is licensed under the Creative Commons 0 License.". There's also a filter for showing only sounds under that license on Freesound.

    Cheers

    Yeah no problem grin and thanks for clarifying the copyright rules. So the sounds should be in CC0, because I can't guarantee that the names and freesound profile links will be in the credits of the final product.

    Years ago while I was recording I had a neighbor call the cops. The patrolmen made me go get my roommate out of his room so that they could see that I had not killed or beaten him. We weren't thrilled about having the police at our apartment, but I considered it an endorsement of my vocal stylings.

    So far, only your shouts seem to get it done grin I have 8 shouts differently panned L & R with a some "church" like reverb and it already sounds like 1000 guys shouting grin I'm going to put my effort to this too and put other 8 shouts more and see what that does. I'm also doing some poetry chanting from Edda in Old Norse if I can get it fit somewhere grin

    Looks like "&" needs to be escaped as "&" in links on Freesound.
