    Is the attribution link a link the sound itself or a link to the artist's profile?

    Timbre, posting details about people online is not cool, not cool at all.
    JimiMod, stop your unappropriate language.

    Yes there are copyright infringements going on
    Yes SEF is doing some things wrong

    I am dealing with SEF "behind the scenes" but you guys keep on festering up this thread like there is no tomorrow.

    Go to youtube/mediafire and file copyright infringements, like for example JarredGibb did.

    Incessant whining in this thread is not going to help.

    - Bram

    Well, at least we know you're still behind the scenes. You said that a few days ago and never came back. SEF was still acting the same and even responding to this thread with the same attitude, or even worse, claiming that he had your permission to do this or that.

    Do not be wrong, Bram, you're the admin of the place, but you're simply nobody special or entitled to represent us. Any individual user can disagree with you representing him and can choose to represent him or herself.

    And yes, I filed copyright infringements to both YouTube and MediaFire. YouTube didn't help because of SEF's counterclaim and I'm still waiting for MediaFire. We wouldn't be ranting here so much of these methods actually worked.

    Thanks CC, I'm looking into that for future projects. Thankfully the brief has turned out to be not too bad or dependent on file size. Was me just being paranoid, but led me to actually think about the file sizes in future.

    I organise (to OCD levels) everything for projects that are not my own into folders. Even write it down so I can at a glance have a kind of map of everything. So I just back everything up and tend not to stream audio when working with it, who knows what could happen. Thankfully thanks to modern technology, using large files hasn't slowed my computer down.

    Learned a few things smile Thanks for the replies guys!

    How do you upload long-time sounds (longer than 3 hours (202,5 s) on freesound? What are the limitations and conditions? Is it possible to upload a 8 hours long or longer 128 kbit/s MP3 file here? Thanks for the answers!

    First is to check your sample rate you are working in is the same as the one of the file you downloaded,

    This could cause playback speeds to be different leading to it sounding higher or lower pitched.

    Next is bit depth.

    And finally

    Make sure your Audio equipment is all running in sync, eg, DAW @ 48K, Audio interface @48K etc.

    If this doesn't help , give me a wee shout.

    Also, Here's a neat little filesize calculator.

    Using a flash drive to store the sounds could end in disaster,

    Not stepping on your feet hiltc

    But.

    The more sounds he drags from that flash drive onto the project the more the flash drive has to stream into the project for playback, Depending on ram sample loading this could work , but as his project gets bigger so does the amount of sounds that have to come off that flash , Ableton for example would deal with this pretty easy. Protools would give it 5 mins then it would start running into drive stream issues.

    The usual drive rpm needed for playback and recording of audio samples is 7200RPM, note that ableton is also pretty good with 5400.

    I would suggest cropping your sounds and chopping them into exactly what's needed. clear your project bin of unused samples, and get a little audio stream drive for all your samples.

    Also be careful whilst moving samples about , if your project is looking for them in different places every time you open it up its gonna start to do your head in.

    Ive opened protools before and its attempted to look for 400 Sounds, took it ages, even when i knew were the sounds were.

    Sorry hiltc - this might of came across as a big dig , it was not in any means.

    Ive not really had any experience in mobile DAW's however may I say this.

    The best DAW is the one you have.

    The one you know how to use.

    Dont let anyone try to say "cubase is crap, protools only"

    personally I cant use cubase , the HUI was not for me . but i appreciate that it can be used , and alot of people are better with cubase than I am with protools.

    So if your enjoying it man , keep it up.

    An alternative option here is to come to arrangement with the sound creator.

    eg.

    The people at your church service do not want to see;

    Credits,

    James - Jesus
    paula - Mary

    Freesounder - 18Hiltc
    Freesounder - Timbre
    Freesounder - Crazymonkey100000

    I have came to arrangements in the past that people may use some sounds with no attribution this has only been after they have contacted me .

    It gives me something to put on my portfolio, Which alot of freesounders are working on and at the same time lets you leave it out of the extra's

    May I add that this is a personal thing and many people may not want to go down this route , this is just one way i have found that can make sure both parties are happy.

    For example , You could contact everyone who's sounds have used, ask them if its ok to use these particular dates,

    They get to plop a little yellow star on their homework , and you have to credit freesound.com on the whole.

    I state again though , you must ask if this is ok first.

    That information identifying SEF was already in this thread.
    I exercised restraint by by not publicly posting his full address and telephone number.
    ( which are not in this thread ).

    The (excellent) suggestion was someone should contact SEF's parent(s) , again , ( even though he is chronologically an adult ).
    That identifying information could enable aggrieved parties to communicate with his parent(s) ,
    which could actually be in SEF's interest : preferable to legal action which would cancel-out all the profits he's made.
