All my Freesound uploads are in the FLAC format, which is lossless and thus gives you the original sound quality of the recording which MP3 doesn't. More and more players nowadays do play FLAC - though in some cases the necessary codec needs to be downloaded before the particular player can do so.
I am trying to download this to use as part of an art installation with sound. I can't seem to get it to download in a form that I can get at. Any suggestions?
I have an Mac. It show it has downloaded but it will not show up in iTunes and says that there is no default application specified to open this sound clip. Any help would be appreciated as your sound is just what I need to work into my sound layers. Thanks.
I'm naturally sorry that anyone has difficulty with the format used for my Freesound uploads - but nowadays more and more devices and software media players do support FLAC - particularly recommended is Foobar2000. I use FLAC because it is the most widely used lossless compressed format, so that, at least theoretically, you get the original recording quality.
Marcel, nice friend, you're going to have to be patient! :-)
My previous comment here still applies. I honestly still haven't worked out my best approach to further Freesound uploads in the light of all the commercial CDs that I'm producing via the CreateSpace system.
Incidentally, three of my commercial CDs contain better and more powerful recordings from this particular Beeny Cliff location, recorded in September 2014. That cliff alcove has two major cave entrances, and the booming occurs very deep within, with amazingly 'huge'-sounding extremely deep booms and rumbles, often with their peak energy at or below 20Hz and so audible only on particularly good playback systems.
Nice recording (and pics ;-) Philip. I promise I listened to your sound on good speakers ; I really loved to slowly increase the volume and feel how the sound evoluates from a kind of a "moving white noise" to this wide, deep and rich ocean atmosphere. Good job, thx for sharing.
