    The linking is completely fine — people link to their sounds being used ‘in situ’ all the time. But you will have to ask the staff about use of the Freesound logo. I suspect they would be fine with this sort of use but can’t speak for them.

    Definitely looking forward to the dub siren sounds.

    I listened to the song today and think I heard what you mean.

    I can’t say what exactly made these sounds on that song, but ape-like sounds are often associated with the cuica, which is a Brazilian friction drum, and it might be samples of that.

    For instance http://freesound.org/people/reinsamba/sounds/21722/ or use the search box to look for cuica. Even some General MIDI drum soundsets come with low and high cuica. Latin percussion in general is one of the few things in life that actually deserves the word awesome smile

    Wow. Fast response on this Dare/Request. I worked a little on the Feeder sound. Hard one. But I'm not 100% satisfied.

    Hey that is too bad Marius... sad

    If that was me I would be running anti-virus software, then would back up all my data.
    Scan the hard-disk for errors.
    Then try restoring the system to a previous date (I am assuming your operating system is windows).

    I am closing the dare.
    New (musical) dare will open soon. In the meantime, there is Dare 33, which is a sound manipulation / sound design challenge.

    I didnt make it...
    I was stretching a sample when I suddenly got a blue screen and the computer restarted.
    After that everytime I try to open my saved project I get a blue screen again.
    Maybe I will try to start over... but I dont have an entrie for this dare. sad

    Hi freesounders! I've never done anything in here, so forgive me if this isn't the place for this sort of stuff. I've listen to this song from the 70's called "yes sir, I can boogie" can anyone sing the lyrics and share them here? Looking forward to them! wink

    Hello Freesounders,

    i plan to make a dubsiren-sample pack and put it on freesound (as CC0). the siren is a diy synth. the sirens sounds not that great when they "dry" - you have to put some haas, reverb, spring and/or delay on it - so i plan to make a demo"song" (just a tune iam working on) with a lot of the siren samples in it.

    so here my questions:

    - can i use the fresoundlogo alongside with the CC logo in the small cover of the Soundcloud demo sound? (is there somewhere a svg?)

    - can i put a link back to the demo on soundcloud in each description of the sound?

    Does anyone have samples from Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven"? I'm specifically looking for the low and high ape sounds that happen throughout the song. The "woo woo woo wooo" and "hey ay ay ay"
    Thank you!

    I've made changes and improvements!

    An audience (from left to right, Zigzagoon, Mudkip, Rayquaza and Swampert) sit before a green curtain. A Pikachu with a gun says silence, I kill you! (http://www.freesound.org/people/KoopaTroopa63/sounds/256539/) Green curtains raise, a Chargin’ Chuck stands in the middle of the stage and says “We must begin our story with a dusty, old, castle, boo hoo! Dusty, because the two unfortunate owners of this castle (I’m one of them) has a prankster for a son. If he was not a prankster we would not have a story. But he is, and we do, and now it is time to tell it.” Awkward silence. “Unfortunately, before we begin, there is a rather long, boring prologue which I shall read to you now!” He gets the prologue and reads it “The two unfortunate castle owners were given the Mechakoop… aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh!” Chargin’ Chuck fell down a trapdoor that had been opened.

    Red curtains raise and Mechakoopa walks home into his room (which is in the chimney!) while making an omelette, he says “Hmm… I haven’t done nothing rotten in a long time! Not since yesterday!” (BTW, they have a pet Zigzagoon!)

    Mechakoopa does some rotten stuff. First, He goes to a castle, with two of the Koopalings Lemmy and Wendy. Mechakoopa pokes Wendy on the back with a stick. Wendy turns round, thinking it was Lemmy who did it and shouts “You stupid, bloody son of a…!” let’s just cut to the next bit. Mechakoopa sneaks up on a Rip Van Fish and tries to wake it up multiple times but it doesn't do nothing. Mechakoopa walks away. A Piranha Plant comes out of a pipe, then goes back in. Mechakoopa walks in a throws a fireball up the pipe. But it goes to the other end into a pit of lava. Mechakoopa is confused why there isn’t a burning Piranha Plant coming out of the pipe and walks under it, the Piranha Plant comes out of the pipe, and Mechakoopa ends up in its mouth, shut. Mechakoopa walks pass Chargin' Chuck deliberately with a cigarette (probably with cocaine in it!) Chargin' Chuck snatch off Mechakoopa, but gets caught by the police! 1/2 hour later Chargin' Chuck was released, as the policemen could not stand her!

    Koopa Troopa's phone starts ringing. A picture of the queen's face on a muscled body appears on the screen (from Mechakoopa) the queen appears behind Koopa Troopa with and axe and brings it down on Koopa Troopa. (DON'T WORRY! There is no blood or gory in this!)

    ALTERNATE ENDING

    Chargin’ Chuck and Koopa Troopa are enjoy the scenary, even though there isn’t much while Zigzagoon sleeps on top of the house. Koopa Troopa sighs and says “It sure is a nice night!” Chargin’ Chuck says “It sure is a nice night! Look behind you!” There, behind Koopa Troopa, was a pile a shells and a wind-up key like Mechakoopa’s. Koopa Troopa walks towards the pile and says “I sure hope Mechakoopa isn’t waiting around anywhere to scare me, because I’ll freak out!” Mechakoopa jumps out of nowhere. Koopa Troopa in surprise jumps for revealing just a wind-up key on a block. Koopa Troopa looks at the moon and gets an idea. Koopa Troopa asks “Have you ever heard of the Moonlight?” Mechakoopa replies “No, what is the Moonlight?” Chargin’ Chuck repeats “No, what is the Moonlight?” Mechakoopa turns to Chargin’ Chuck and says “Quiet, you! You’re only supposed to know about American Football!” Koopa Troopa explains “The Moonlight is a glowing orb of white light that haunts these parts!” Chargin’ Chuck says “ Don’t be too scared Mechakoopa, it ain’t real!” Koopa Troopa shouts “It is real!” They both pay attention.

    “It all started on a night like tonight! The Reznors were howling at the moon because it pissed them off last Tuesday. Two Mechakoopas were travelling, when they spotted the unnatural, white glow. And all that was left was a pile scrap metal. So remember, the one thing that angers the Moonlight more than anything else, is the sound of clanky metal.” Mechakoopa is shaking, making him rattle, metallically. In an attempt to stop himself, he bend down but continues. He puts his whole body on the ground. But even that doesn’t stop it. Koopa Troopa continues “As you head home tonight, keep an eye out, the Moonlight could be anywhere. Well goodnight!” Koopa Troopa leaves. Chargin’ Chuck says “Goodnight!” And leaves. Mechakoopa is alone. “Er… goodnight.” All the light in the area turn off.

    Mechakoopa is walking, alone, scared. A orb of orange light appears, Mechakoopa thinks it’s the Moonlight. “Oh no! It’s the Moonlight!” He starts to walk backwards. “Moonlight! I respect you! Return from where you came!” The orb is just a sun. It flies off. Mechakoopa says “Oh, it’s just a sun! The Moonlight isn’t even orange anyway! Koopa Troopa said that the Moonlight is white!” A white light appears behind Mechakoopa. He looks behind himself. He thinks it’s the Moonlight and runs off screaming. Koopa Troopa and Chargin’ Chuck appears where Mechakoopa was. Mechakoopa screams “Arrgghh! The Moonlight’s right behind me! Arrgghh!” The Moonlight is actually a lantern attached to him by Koopa Troopa and Chargin’ Chuck. Mechakoopa ducks. The lantern flips in front of him. “Now it’s in front of me! Arrrggghhh!” He runs backwards. Someone screams. Then there’s an explosion. Mechakoopa shouts “Sorry!” He continues run forwards. He shouts “Arrrggghhh! The moonlight’s gonna eat me!”

    Later Mechakoopa continues to run, he ducks making the lantern fall on a bomb making it explode. It falls in front of him he realises he been tricked and says “Hey! What a minute!” Koopa Troopa laughs. Mechakoopa says “I knew this was a trick the whole time!” Koopa Troopa says “The only thing to be scared of around he is Mario!” Chargin’ Chuck says “Yep! That! And of course The Ghostly Reznor! Well goodnight!” They both leave Mechakoopa. Street lights go out. Mechakoopa says “The Ghostly what?” He shakes again, making himself rattling. The end credits play at the top of the screen it shows them both walking home. The Ghostly Reznor appears behind Mechakoopa, growling. Mechakoopa turns round, facing the Reznor. He says “You better run! They say there’s a Reznor out here, but I ain’t seen him yet! Goodnight!” He walks away. The Reznor’s growl turns into a confused grunt.

    The end credits continue to play showing Mechakoopa walking home. When he makes it home he gives Koopa Troopa and Chargin' Chuck flowers which they fight over (Chargin' Chuck won!) And gives Zigzagoon a Dairy Milk bar.

    EPILOGUE

    Yes sir, I can boogie plays.

    Zigzagoon finds a letter saying everyone has gone out for the afternoon. Zigzagoon spends the afternoon with his Dairy Milk bar. He eventually decides to eat it. He takes a small bite out of it and start jumping everywhere. He even evolves.

    Hello Forum,

    I'm looking for some sound effects for my homebrew RPG setting. I'm after something to play to my players when they meet the 'Ancient Spirits'.

    Looking for gentle but alien vocals. Something in the way of singing or moaning? When I say alien, I mean something that wouldn't be recognised as human vocals, yet at the same time I want it to be soothing.

    The spirits are not ghosts. They are very alive and very corporeal, however they are not physical in the same way as other organic life. They are a life-form that is basically made up of energy and gas. When the characters meet them, they will be coming down from the sky, floating and fleeting around the characters whilst whispering into their minds. I am after a sound effect to represent the audible manifestation of the spirit's language. That way the players will be hearing this noise, associating it with the words I say, thus representing the characters hearing this strange noise but knowing what it means.

    I hope I have been clear enough for you guys, I can hear the sound in my head already but I am having trouble putting it to words properly.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    I am no Jerry Goldsmith or Danny Elfman but I thought I would share this, it is my first go at composing a soundtrack for anything. It's only a 1 minute 30 sec video.....

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7e4h5_D7rA&feature;=share

    Hopefully I get to do something like this again, was quite enjoyable and as they say practice makes perfect. (Next one should be way better!).

    Weird, I had no issue unzipping it.

    You are right about lots going on, in that 2 mins there is literally stuff happening between frames. A lot harder than I thought it would be, dunno if I'll get an entry in time but still fun to have a play.

    I can't imagine how long a whole movie would take.

    Ok that will be your issue then, you need to try unpacking with another program if 7Z does not work right. I used to use 7zip when I was windows based, and I remember it being a little bit dodgy with some compression settings.
