Listen to lots of styles of music
I think really the forum and sound comments facilitates this kind of feature. And might actually be better, considering that your query would have better visibility, which would attract more feedback. I know you probably want to see feedback for particular sounds that you would otherwise think are ok, but something tells me that the sound comments are sufficient in allowing feedback.
Just post a question into production techniques, music gear, tips and tricks if you are after some feedback for something specific.

Copyc4t nailed it, but I want to add one point.
I see quite a big mistake people make is to over-do applied noise reduction which produces artefacts and sounds even worse.
This is what I'm talking about: http://www.freesound.org/people/Benboncan/sounds/72645/
If you are going to clean your audio, just don't go overboard and it'll be fine. There is some audio that cannot be cleaned fully without destroying the spectral content of the file.
A coughing pig.
Hello fellow Freesounders
Some time ago I created a music piece where I manipulated a koto recording. The original was a wax cylinder recording, so old that copyright has long expired.
(check here if you don't know what a wax cylinder is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phonograph_cylinder)
Anyway, I was looking for inspiration and searched for koto recordings here at Freesound.
There are very few.
I know we have a few Japanese users, maybe you can help?
Well, uploading only raw recordings would keep the sound archive the smallest and it would leave everyone the freedom to edit at will; but if you check the sample requests forum, you'll see all kinds of requests, including full effected ones.
Sometimes people are in a hurry, or not familiar with editing, so a sound that is closer to a "final product" will help them better, while expert users would prefer raw sources.
You could upload "raw" and "cleaned" versions of your sounds, and establish links between them via the sound sources section if you make separate sounds.
If the sound is short enough, you could even chain both versions in a single sound (and eventually also various processed versions), so that users can cut and use the part they prefer.
Like this for example:
4563 - array
4562 - Strip
To my opnion, unproccesed audio is always the niced to use.
4561 - LED
4559 - Crescendo
There are so many advanced folks here, that I know I'd really benefit from their knowledge and experience. To that end, I'd love a feature that encourages others to make technical suggestions on individual sounds, particularly from the veterans. Of course it would be optional, but as a beginner I might not know what I don't know. Feedback is a great way to improve, and this is a great community for that kind of input.
Just a thought.
I'm new to this, and having a great time. I have a TASCOM DR-5 and utilize Audacity for editing. My question is...is it better to upload raw-ish recordings, or to edit for background noise, etc?
I ask because I'd like to offer the cleanest sounds possible. However, as a beginner, I worry that somebody else can do a better job and I'll edit in a way that makes the sound less appealing to others.
I'm interested in everybody's thoughts. And as I'm typing this, I'm thinking of a new feature suggestion......I'll pop over there and post.
Thanks to you all for your help and for this site!
Hi. I have a request for recreating a couple sections from the song Echoes by Pink Floyd (original studio version, about 23:25 mins long). I'll need these by the end of October. I’m not looking for exact replicas but something close and having about the same or longer duration. The link for the song is on YouTube at https://youtu.be/xmADpBu_ZCA
This first part I need begins at around 10:30 with a gradual fade-in, continues, then a gradual fade out beginning at around 14:30 and is gone by around 15:15 or so. Note; starting at 11:25 you'll hear a whaling bird scream that is "calling out" from time to time during this section - I'll be playing that part on my synth.
This entire section can be thought of as descending into some deep, dark, strange, swampy, alien world. At around 14:30, there's a gradual fade in of a Bm chord (Farfisa organ sound that I'll be playing) representing the ascension out of this otherworldly place.
At the end of the song, starting at around 22:10, is a mix based on a rising Shepard tone which has some type of wind/vocal layer on it. I'll be playing the high "ping" sound on my piano through a Leslie effect pedal. I've made multiple attempts at creating this from scratch (synths, Audacity) but haven’t yet had the success I was looking for.
Thanks in advance for considering my requests.
