    Congrats toiletrolltube!
    To celebrate you I used sounds from last year that has not been that popular. But I usually like sounds many “dislike” (or just haven’t found yet). One of the sounds matches your freesound user id… a little…
    Selected sounds.

    Well put Martian. And I'd like to add: (or should that be a semi colon?) the amount of times I've been attributed for CC0 is amazing. People can be amazing.

    In saying all that, this is way off topic and this thread is more about helping creative people discover and find new sounds for their work. A little digression doesn't hurt though. Also, as a reply to DrNI, CC can be a hindrance to the creative process. Even if it's just an atfer thought; it doesn't mean anything.

    Yep, free is the thing. And oh shit, no offense to you those who choose a different license. That's free also.

    you have to be deluded to think u will get credit or notice every time your sound is used.

    if u put it on the internet - you better expect its going to be used..

    agree with the comment - just put everything up as creative 0 or dont bother.

    I'm not anywhere near a top downloaded sound on this site - I think my most downloaded sound is 30000 times..

    I had about 30 thanks yous - and possible 1 maybe 2 credits.. The thank yous I do appreciate - the credits - I think of them as thankyous but I'm not concerned about them at all

    I dont care at all who uses my stuff - I have found a few time saving sounds on here.. mostly the creative 0's - if its not - its gotta be super hard to find and super well recorded before I use it - and I will ask permission - but the producers I work for would think I am crazy if I asked for credit for the door close 45 mins in..

    i think the name is the thing.. freesound.. given freely

    I just completed the survey as best I could. Not being a huge downloader, more of a contributor at times. It doesn't really matter to me, the searching/finding process is on a personal level, and as it stands, it works fine.

    Ah, I'm not looking for lots of downloads on my sounds, but, it is nice at the same time, and I can't say that I'm not flattered or useless.

    A personal thought that many will disagree with: just make the whole thing CC0 and get on with your life. But perhaps we're a few decades away from that kind of thinking. Who cares if you're noticed or recompensed? I'm not paying shit to anyone. Does Beethoven? And there is your future. Nothing. Licenses are nonsenses.

    The only important thing is that you enjoy what you do and that others enjoy it also. Then you go to sleep.

    Unfortunately, I almost quit using CC-licensed material. Except for CC0/public domain. It may sound strange to post this here on Freesound but for me it turns out that it does not work any more to work with CC. I'm somewhere in the middle grounds, I can't afford to give away my music under terms of CC, but I also don't make a big deal with selling stuff. My attitude has shifted over the last couple of years, and now I almost entirely do without CC. When I use samples in a live setup, is it commercial, or isn't it? What when I get lousy 150€/night playing with a duo, using samples, can I afford to a) pay the copyright holder for this commercial use b) take the effort to ask everybody for permission c) find a way to give credit to all those countless people during the live show?

    Licensing my music under terms of any CC doesn't buy me anything, there's no fame to be gained in the nowadays-internet where mass media have become media masses and you'd have to run marketing campaigns to get the necessary attention for your give-aways. Plus, the average recipient simply doesn't seem to care about all of this. You're there when you're in iTunes, otherwise you are nowhere. License? Who cares? (And, as anywhere else, being in iTunes simply means you are existent at all, but not necessary that being noticed.)

    Something that would be really useful would be the ability to download sounds in a zip file that also contains a text file with pertinent information. Let me explain.

    Sometimes I browse this site casually, downloading several sounds without looking for anything in particular. Later, as I'm searching my hard drive for audio samples for various projects, I might find a sound I downloaded previously and decide to use it.

    This is fine for personal projects that I'm not going to share with anyone else, but if I ever intend to distribute my creations, I need to know the legal limitations, i.e. the license. Unfortunately, if I downloaded the sound without making a note of the license by hand, I have to come back on the site and hopefully be able to find it again.

    What I would like to see is each sound downloadable as a zip file including the sound file itself as well as a text or html file containing the following:

    *The creator/copyright holder. This is optional, since it's in the file name already.
    *The license. It doesn't have to be the full text of the license as long as it just lists which CC license it uses.
    *The description. Sometimes the author puts specific instructions here, so it would be nice to have this available.

    This would save a lot of hassle and make it easier to avoid violating the licenses.

    Okay. But there is no way to pick both CC0 and CC-BY sounds, but not -NC sounds.

    Also, why there are not GPL or -SA sound?

    How can I exclude -NC sounds from search, so I wont use them by accident in my project? Shouldn't they be excluded by default as unsafe?

    A little offtopic, but is there a good benchmark for mics, recording-hardware or audio hardware at all?

    any thoughts?
    I've got it and I think it is great, little, vintage mic.
    Not only voice recording?

    Learnt about this from listening to/watching Joe Rogan Podcasts https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzQUP1qoWDoEbmsQxvdjxgQ Not a huge fan of his standup, but sometimes interesting guests and new things to be learnt there. I do like him though.

    OMG! Alien, that's a lovely thing you said. I don't expect many shall participate (myself included), but that's fine with me, but a wonderful birthday gift nonetheless. I had a listen to what good old Klankbeeld had done - that crazy Dutch bastard smile And I laughed.

    Dearest Headphaze, I'm glad you feel that way. I do try to keep it to a minimum, but sometimes the inner looney/moron supercedes better judgement.

    @klankbeeld I do, marginally.

    Hello guys,

    Have a very good day! I am looking for a good theme (modeling) for my recently build site. For the first time I am looking for a demo. Do you know about any theme site which offers demo theme? If yes, please let me know.

    I want to visit the site. Thank you!
