    Try getting rid of some of the high frequencies on your drum hit. Take a little off the mid and slowly turn up the low end until you like what you hear. Simple, but it usually works for me.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind of like what you might hear in deeper bass music with a lot of sub bass (skream, v.i.v.e.k., benga, not that commercial brostep stuff). All the kick drums i've used end up sticking out in the mix too much, or they disappear completely. Help?

    App

    Could you maybe possibly make this an app? I make YouTube videos using my iPad because I don't have the money for a professional grade camera. So I thought this would be amazing in an app, or maybe make these sounds downloadable? Thanks for reading!

    Hi Alienxxx,

    this is great. Here is a contribution of me recorded before on a friends long-wave radio.
    http://freesound.org/people/klankbeeld/sounds/239618
    I gave it the dare-28 tag.
    I was listening to the Twente university radio in the Netherlands a few times the last months and it is great. I hope others will like it to.

    Come on freesounders try it yourself and upload it here

    regards

    This is not a complaint, bitch, hard cheese or sour apples--it is curiosity.

    The weekly popularity rating system appears to be pretty much random, until the "Most downloaded" are considered. Those are, obviously, based on hard data.

    Previously, artisans like rjonesXL would have 7 or 8 PAGES dedicated solely to his submissions, with most of them sporting a big fat zero in the downloads indication slot. I liked his work and hated to see him go, and I joked with him a couple of times about his domination of the "new and groovy" pages, and apparently he was uploading a library that had taken years to amass.

    Today, July 17th, at 7:08pm Mountain time over here in the colonies, an artist has 91 consecutive files listed within the 444 that make up the weekly favorites list--that's about 20% of ALL FILES REPRESENTED.

    On the other hand, I have a file submitted on the 15th with 25 downloads at this time, and it is nowhere to be seen in the "top" weekly files.

    I've guessed at what the method used to determine list inclusion might be, with my hypotheses being disproven over time, except for the "volume" variable; how many files are uploaded as an indication of your warranting several positions within the ranks of "New this week, and ON THE COOL LIST."

    The volume method, I've found, leads to fewer downloads and therefore fewer of your files being used, and in a lot of cases, ignored altogether. I've gone with 1 to 2 files a day, and when it's a decent effort, I land on the first couple of pages for the week allotted.

    Most confusing: 91 files with the highest download number among them being 2 and most of the rest ZERO, VS a file not represented with 25 downloads.

    Anyone know how this is calculated?

    Hello daring Freesounders

    Has been quite a while without a new dare being posted...

    We are going to continue along the lines of the unusual sound sources and sound creation techniques.
    Today I submit for your attention that Shortwave Radio is an EXCELLENT source of interesting sounds.
    If you read this and think "I don't have a radio receiver..." Don't worry because you will not need one. (read on!)

    This is going to be a developing dare... as we get enough interest and participation I will post the next "level"...
    So,...erm... stay tuned! (LOL)

    First of all, the rules:
    1 - Level One of this dare simpy asks users to record and upload sounds from AM / SW / MW / LW radio.
    You notice I exclude FM radio because it is too commercial - read rule #2
    2 - You need to be aware of possible copyright issues.
    Do not upload music pieces, adverts or radio jingles.
    Static, interfeerence, morse and data transmissions are all allowed.
    Number stations, weather stations, closk synchronization stations, radio chatter are allowed.
    At a stretch, single sentences from news reports should be allowed. Weather reports. Very distorted (incorrect tunning) would be allowed also.
    3 - Do not process your sounds. If you want to post a processed sound (e.g. noise reduction) make sure you also post the original.
    4 - Include the tag "dare-28" in your uploaded sounds. Post here to let everyone know when you upload sounds related to this dare (and be patient for moderation, eh eh ).

    Right, so what do you do if you do not have a shortwave radio?
    You use theirs:
    http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/
    (if you use it, do give credit and even post the link on your sound description)
    I recommend you try it even if you do have a radio because the sound quality is likely to be better that what you can get, the range of frequencies and control over bandwidth gives lots of options (great to get some cool sounds). Also, if your browser supports it, there is a button that allows you to record what you hear directly from the website and download the file.
