    This is very common here.

    The playback of sound files on this site is of a much lower quality version of the file that is actually downloaded by users, so there are some weird artifacts like this that appear. I'm not entirely sure what causes it - perhaps a certain frequency triggers it?

    Regardless, I've started putting little notes in the description saying that the quality is always better when downloaded etc.

    I've only just noticed a strange high-pitched beeping in many of my uploaded sounds on Freesound. At first I thought it must be a problem with my equipment, but I'm relieved to discover the beeps only occur after uploading to Freesound.

    Please listen to this audio for example, where you can here the high-pitched beep after 8, 13 and 21 seconds... and throughout.

    How has this happened? It's really annoying!

    Many thanks, Paul

    What if you had a version of free sound users could use that had advertisements? You would have to choose to use that version, and if you did FS would get revenue from the adds.

    It has been slow lately, but usually [in my experience] it's much faster.

    Ten days and counting - should I be worried that my submission "Space Hulk Engine Room" might have been overlooked or is it just because it is the summer break?

    Glad to have found this thread. I've uploaded some sounds over the years, but not many. I had a chance to record some great squeaky door hinges and was surprised that they were embargoed. Now I see that you are actually listening to them all. The wait doesn't matter to me, I already have the sounds in my files... just happy to help the community by adding some new ones when I get a chance. smile

    When a musician, instrument designer and sound artist crosses the globe from Tasmania to your home town to get you involved in his research project about the life and artistic career of Futurist and pioneer of Noise Art Luigi Russolo, what do you do?

    But of course! You ask him, on his way to the next city, to record some ambience at the train station, to submit it for Freesound Dare 50! grin
    ...I had planned to use my smartphone for that, but since he has a Zoom H4n, I took that chance smile

    So my gratitude goes to my friend Mat Ward, first of all for involving me in his project (and taking quite a detour for that on his path around Italy) and then for kindly doing this extra work.

    Here are the unprocessed recordings,

    conveniently packed here:

    In case you're curious, this is the project's page:

    In the blog section you'll find excerpts of his audio and video recordings, some of which, taken in Pescara, feature yours truly smile

    very cool ... i think there would be a lot of donations if there were a simple javascript donate button option on each page for each contributor ... anyway it was just a quick thought, not sure if it is a great idea or not .. cheers for the reply smile

    Hi,

    I uploaded three related sounds on Saturday evening, which seem to be ignored by the moderators (no one has assigned the tickets generated to themselves, or posted something on the ticket if there is something with the sounds that needs addressing).

    Would it be possible for a moderator to look into this and let me know if there is an issue with the sounds I uploaded?

    Thanks in anticipation

    Paul

    There is no system in place for user specific donations, but you can donate to Free sound on their main page, I think the best way to donate to specific contributors would be to contact the user personally through the site's private message system and give them your proposal in which they will respond to you telling you how to do so, this way you know the contributor will receive the money you send them.

    Hi there, love Freesound ... i would like to make donations directly to freesound contributors if possible ... maybe with a ten percent ratio going directly to freesound? not sure if this is possible but i didn't find a button on any pages.

    Also like the idea of contributing directly to Freesound for sure, although the ability to donate directly to contributors would be immediately a more attractive idea to my own sense of donating.
