    I've just published a video tutorial showing the simple workflow I've used for this Dare:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiwC05zMaFw

    ...on a side note, I've tried to mark my sounds as remixes of CadereSounds' originals, but only one retained the information correctly; of course I've done the same steps on them all, I've also tried again on just a few of them, but the information gets lost. I've never had issues with that before.

    Hello Dan

    Yes that is correct. Although it doesn't give an explicit guide in the FAQ, it is a policy that full length composed music tracks are not suitable for Freesound, so they won't get through moderation. The mod that was handling your upload should have made an action against the ticket and that would have automatically sent an e-mail to your address with the details they gave; it's worth checking your spam folder for that e-mail if you missed it, it should headline as "A Freesound Moderator handled your upload".

    I understand there might be a bit of ambiguity as to what makes some 'music' unacceptable, and there are many other more suitable places to upload music tracks e.g. SoundCloud, CCmixter, The Free Music Archive etc. So lets detail what's ok here and what's not...

    The following forms would be acceptable:


    • Loops or any composition that is intended for use as a component.
    • A cappellas
    • Motifs / Melodies and short multi-layered sequences.
    • Passages of particular instrumentation, again intended as a component and not a full soundtrack.
    • Buskers or street performers (with permission)
    • Potentially music that is creatively recorded to provide an effect of some sort.

    The following forms would be unacceptable:


    • Library Music
    • Full length soundtracks from external media (unless compartmentalised).
    • Album tracks
    • Music subject to copyrights (of course)
    • Demos and other promotional music
    • Concerts or other public music included with other sounds (again about legality)

    There are some grey areas I must admit like band practice which is up for debate, but that is the general policy to follow which will make sure your specific music definitely gets onto the site.

    Hope this helped, and have a good day. smile

    Hello
    Full music pieces are not allowed because freesound is dedicated to sounds, not music.
    There are lots of places dedicated to music: soundcloud, ccmixter, bandcamp...

    We want to keep freesound dedicated to sounds only. Note that we accept loops, acapellas, small pieces (30-45s), sequences, riffs - basically things that can be used by others to make their own music.

    Hi there,

    I recently tried to release a full original soundtrack for a game I produced. I don't have any uploaded sounds, so I guess it didn't go through. Is releasing music not allowed here? or am I just doing something wrong.

    Thanks much

    A while back they changed the default search order from most-downloaded and weighted it towards newest-uploaded. Before the change some of my sounds were getting around 5 to 15+ downloads a day. After the change that dropped down to 1 or 2 downloads/day, where it has remained ever since. It actually happened overnight the day they introduced the change. As long as downloaders are happy with what they find that's okay by me, but if they are missing out on more appropriate samples then that's a pity. In a forum post about the search prior to the change I did suggest a more complicated algorithm that would weight by downloads per week (or some such) so that it did not send newish samples down the list to page 56, but also did not bury obviously popular samples either.

    Wibby.

    you can't tell the difference between Japanese and Chinese or Korean!

    Actually, you can tell the difference quite well, apart from Japanese and Chinese which are quite similar looking, Korean has a different notation. I'm sure to some Korean people, Cyrillic and English could potentially be the same language, but only if those people are dimwits.

    English: Free Sound
    Japanese: 無料の音
    Chinese: 免費聲音
    Korean: 무료 사운드

    Just a note for everyone concerned: the problem is known, and is being dealt with accordingly.

    ... for the (medical) condition that causes Freesounders to download enormous amounts of sounds?
    That makes them decide that the sound of the day (or some other sound that they just happened to stumble accross) is just amazingly good and must be downloaded?

    Has any research been done into this condition?

    Is there a cure?
    (Do we want a cure?)

    Please share your thoughts.

    Strange you should say. How do I put this into words? Something like this: why is it that my last upload gets the most downloads? Every fucking time. Just weird.

    In future, I'm uploading stuff I hate as an experiment. (no I'm not, just an observation).

    Ah good Wibby, and I must confess, I love a bit of forum drama me self. Too much time alone me thinks.

    I'd like to write more, but I'm not in the mood.

    Laters...

    As you can see it's getting a bit difficult to navigate the freesound forums at the moment, due to all these Korean spam posts. Please, just mark them as spam, I am notifying the freesound admins about it too.
    Thanks

    I think they just literally just joined Freesound just to spam! I just checked out one of the guys profile, and he's only been a "user" for 6 hours!
