    I do understand your point Goran. I have put a credit to Freesound in the actual show audio directing people on how to find the list. It's at the end of every show. I wish I could list every sound there individually but there are so many that it would be too long.

    Hopefully the general credit will help Freesound in its mission.

    Hi Dave.

    Nothing personal, as I am speak-write on my own behalf, not on Freesound.org.

    I used to live in the UK. and paid for my radio/ tv taxes.

    My point was, that contributers, or stuff (a few Spanish, and couple of international blokes) who voluntarlay work, and starving for Freesound.org should be, donated or promoted, at lest from big BBC in more propriated way, then PDF file list, what (to be fair) nobody reads.
    All the best,

    Goran-z2

    Hey, can't believe I made it to the list too... I thought my sounds were generally too weird to be useful...

    Dave, looking forward to seeing (hearing) your sounds here at Freesound.
    It will be quite an honour actually to have some sounds here that were created by the BBC sound experts - The BBC has a long tradition of sound design!

    That is also the beauty of the internet. Nowadays any of us can find that one of his/hers sounds have been used on a music piece, TV show, etc - The internet has made the world smaller. And that is a good thing.

    Hi Goran, the BBC is the UK's state owned broadcaster. It is paid for by a special tax on houses with televisions in them. No advertising at all within the UK. I think that the BBC sells things like Doctor Who to other TV channels around the world, but this podcast is not in any way connected to that commercial stuff.

    This is part of the BBC's education remit. It will generate no income, will never promote a commercial product or service and is available free of charge to anyone, anywhere, who wants to download it.

    We only promote two things, science and Freesound smile

    That feels pretty commie to me!

    With the greatest of respect,
    Comrade Dave

    Respect to all, above mentioned Freesounders, but so glad not to be on the "You make, we take and give you...credit" list.

    Your sincerely.

    Or, just a too commie, or too vain.

    What a lovely response! thanks all.

    I'm about half way through editing the series (8 shows) at the moment so that list will grow and grow.

    So far I have exclusively used Freesound sounds. I hope to make it to the end maintaining that purity!

    Timbre, your TARDIS - LOL That's exactly what I thought when I used it (Out in a month Ep4 has a time travel sequence) I needed to create the idea of time travel without breaking the 4th wall (do we have that in sound?) too much. The real TARDIS sound would have been too distracting, but your sound brings the idea into the listeners head without actually distracting from the story. It's also mixed with several other sounds.

    In general, I use a sort of wall of sound approach. Some sequences have as many as 30 sounds running at the same time. The binaural space kind of glues it all together.

    These first two were actually kind of pilot episodes.

    The upcoming third episode is around an hour long and contains the most complex sound design I've ever attempted, It's going to be crazy smile

    Anyhoo, back to the edit!

    Thanks again.

    Thank you Dave & BBC.

    And also thanks to all the Freesound contributors.

    Wait a damn minute!
    Yay!! I'm on page 19 of the List!

    I'd like to go into Trump mode and say-
    "These are good people who with my help did a wonderful thing. I put a lot of hard work into this. They couldn’t have done it without me BIG!" (yup, 140 characters)

    Seriously, it's great to see so many freesounders, icons and occasional creators gathered in one place.

    Wibby

    Anything larger than a megabyte or two requires me to pause and resume the download every few seconds in order to actually finish it. The download either starts out at a peak speed and drops off from there, or it builds up over a few seconds, and then drops off to zero over a few seconds, or near zero. I'm on a college network in Michigan which has quite a fast connection normally - the download speed has gone up to 1 MB/s, once or twice. Of course, my download speed depends on how fast the server I'm connected to will send data to me, while Freesound seems to be capable of fast speeds it's not capable of sustaining it for any reasonable length of time. If there's any information I can provide that would help, let me know.

    Hello

    This new BBC podcast uses loads of freesound sounds and has a credit to freesound at the end of each show.

    The sound list is here http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/learning/tomorrowsworld/TW_FreesoundList.pdf

    Direct link to Episode 1: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05jngwy
    Direct link to Episode 2: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05jnlrm

    The sound design is all binaural so listen with your best headphones.

    I'm one of the producers and the sound designer for the BBC.

    I wanted to say a massive thank you to the freesound community. You are a source of endless inspiration and variety that really gets my creative juices flowing. I love you guys.

    I'm ashamed to say that although I've had an account here for 11 years, 6 months I have yet to upload anything. I promise to correct that once all the work of making the rest of this series is out of the way. I'll dig through the pile of off-cuts and share them.

    Anyway, thanks again.

    Hey

    Im a new beat producer who's planning to taking the whole producing thing a little bit more serious. To prevent people stealing the beats I'm in need to put a tag over it. I thought of a female voice tag saying

    "This beat is about to get wavy!"

    and

    "Wavybeing"

    If anyone could do that free to me I'd be soooo happy :/

    Of course some cool pronunciation would be awesome, but im not choosy smile. If theres a male with a good voice im thankful for that as well.

    Note that I might also sell beats with your tag on. (If you wish to get credited somewhere just add that)

    You should be able to left click the yellow "Download" button on the right-side of a sound page.

    It seems you might be right clicking the button instead, which wouldn't work and would instead download an image of the download button itself, or (in your case) an html link to the sound page.
