Is it possible to isolate a part of a song, like a vocal track, and mute the rest? Is there some software that can do this? Cheers
"1-bit" means "1 or 0."
If the microphone gives loud signal, A/D chip makes many 1s in the file, and many 0s for silent sound.
1011111011111111011111011100111111101101011111110011010111110101110 is rather loud, and
0000000001000000100010100000010100000000000100000000001000010000000 is very silent, I think.
1-bit recorder just records these numbers in the memory. And D/A chip changes them into natural wave for us to hear. Quite simple.
Multi-bit PCM is just like drawing a line with tiles. No matter how hard you try to simulate the real line, each tile has corners like a stairway. You shall never get rid of this fact.
By forming 16bit/44.1kHz waves, you have to abandon much fidelity. 24bit/192kHz is pretty good, but still less than simple 1bit quality. (at this rate, human ears can hardly tell the difference, though....)
1bit devices can be made at lower cost than high-quality PCM recorders, and the sound fidelity may be more than you can imagine.
Sounds good, but I can't noise remove for shit so I won't be able to participate.
I might have a chance if I can get into an audio techniques class next semester...
You can also try reinstalling the flash player, making sure to tell it to install the flash plugin for firefox.
How about these?
http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=17130 = probably what you want, sounds like a shotgun to me
http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=15545 = more of a rifle type sound
Sonic also has another nice melon stabbing sound effect: http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=2883
you can also download a cut/proccessed version of this sound from the sonic valley website: http://www.sonicvalley.com/
Hope that helps!
EDIT: Oooops. Fixed second link.
Awww, sharin' the love.
Haha! The Lo-fi revolution!
All I have is:
a dusty, OLD-ass Highballer 2 I found in the cupboard below my tv.
a peice of crap olympus voice recorder
bent toys from my closet
a guitar the used to have six strings, but now only has four, I found it in my closet.
Oh, and a turntable and hundreds of my dad's old records
So you can understand why nothing made with that crap ever gets posted here, I use digital synths and stuff, because I can't find a decent noise removal program.
My first submissions to freesound were recorded on a laptop internal microphone and a labtec headset!!! People still ate them up.
Just go ahead and post whatever you come up with... worst that can happen is nobody comments, and the best thing that could happen is that someone gives you constructive feedback.
As for me, the internal microphone on my Canon GL-2 is as fancy as I can get, although I may be able to check out sennheisers and a fostex from my school's equipment room if I need them for a school-related film project.
What I really want is a small recording setup I can take with me everywhere I go... I always hear cool stuff and wish I had a mic handy!
Well, that would be illegal to post on freesound, but you may be able to "use" them depending on what you plan to do. For instance, home use of copyrighted materials is usually permissable under fair use law. Nobody's going to come after you for using a film score in your family vacation video, etc.
If you plan to publish your work that incorporates the copyrighted content, it gets trickier. Best to read up on copyright law and/or consult a lawyer.
Thank you soundhead, that is correct.
This is the specific line that was referred to earlier:
...credit may be implemented in any reasonable manner... at a minimum such credit will appear where any other comparable authorship credit appears and in a manner at least as prominent as such other comparable authorship credit.
DrNI: The attribution format you proposed should be fine. There is no need to get permission from each author (that's why we use creative commons in the first place!) but around here it's considered a nice gesture to at least tell them how you plan to use their work. Of course, you must obtain permission if you want to use the work in a way that goes outside the scope of the license, such selling your song for a commercial advertising an unrelated product like a car.
What will those craaazy lawyers come up with next?
Thread moved to sample request forum.
As to your request, have a look at this older thread: http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/forum/viewtopic.php?t=184
Which references this sample pack: http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/packsViewSingle.php?id=259
Enjoy, and welcome to freesound.
Awesome! I look forward to hearing your samples, and welcome to freesound.
I really think that the intention of that confusing clause is to prevent the making of for-profit music videos or such from sampling+ licensed songs. Always keep in mind that this license was written for commercial artists who wish to encourage filesharing and sampling/remixing of their songs, not for a sample library. It's still nice to ask the authors of course, but I think that the sounds would qualify as an "insubstantial portion" of the work.
Of course, I am not a lawyer, and it's nicer to ask anyway, so go ahead.
So how does 1-bit work? I thought it was better to have high bitrates. 2.8MHz sounds like an amazing sampling rate, though.
Welcome to freesound. I look forward to hearing some of your samples in the future!
Glad you like it! If you want, feel free to share your work made with freesound in the forum with that name.
Yes! That would be so awesome. Thanos, you bring up some great possibilites. A creative-commons licensed stock footage pool would be a good place to start, and perhaps video remixes could be incorporated ccmixter style.
For now there is the open source movies section of archive.org... you can post CC-licensed videos there with ccpublisher, they don't have to be public domain.
But now I'm imagining something halfway between ccMixter and youtube, with downloads of various video resolutions... oh wow. *Drools*
There's obviously never going to be a consensus here. I still think attribution is the best way to go. Clear and not MORE LIMITING than Sampling+ like attribution-noncommercial is.
Also, the works added up until the point of the license switch will theoretically always be available under Sampling+, so will that also be noted as part of a multi-licensing scheme?
I think that the policy is fine as-is, since it makes people really think about it before they request to have their sample removed.
However, I agree with you that this process should be more obvious. We should at least have a faq topic about it, if not some kind of form you can submit to request deletion of certain files. Perhaps we should also let people trying to describe uploaded files know this policy up-front so they can decide if they want to go through with the upload or not, and aren't surprised when they find out the policy later.
Good point! I guess it just seems like nobody answers at all just because nobody replies to the thread in public.
Any one of there is able to sample all spd-20 sample in dry mode, like 1 wav of all bass drum, 1 wav for all snare and goes on etc..
