    I've found lots of cymbal rolls but I'm looking for a loud hit followed by cymbal swells decreasing in volume. Like something you'd hear at the end of a song (ex: Creeping Death by Metallica).

    hi everyone,

    i've managed to save up some money and wanted to get myself one of those portable recorders, namely Zoom. i had my sights set on the H4n for a while but then i saw the new H5 and so i got stuck trying to pick one of the two. so i'm asking for advice - which of the two is better value for money and should i buy the extras for them? i saw a few reviews on youtube and tests but those are somewhat biased as they're mostly done by music shops trying to sell them.

    thank you in advance! smile

    This is a clear and logical answer to what was a very sensible question asked with good intent. Although the answer is clearly implied in the T&Cs; I think it would be very useful to add to the FAQs.

    Perhaps something like this -

    Q: "Can I use the Freesound logo in my work?"

    A: "No. Using the logo might confuse people into thinking you are representing Freesound. Also since Freesound imposes no restrictions on how the sounds are used, other than following copyright rules, we cannot be associated with or thought to be endorsing any content over which we have no control."

    Hi everyone. I am making a twin stick SHMUP for Android which is similar to an old 80's arcade game called Williams Defender, and I would like to have sound effects that sound like the originals (without actually being the originals ripped from a ROM).

    I need sound effects very similar to most of the original game sound effects. In all there are 18 effects required.

    I have all the required sound effects ripped from a MAME ROM and can provide a ZIP archive with those if you need them to work from.

    I figure that anyone with a good knowledge of Bfxr or something similar would make short work of this. But hey, what the heck do I know?'m just a lowly programmer wink

    If anyone thinks they might be able to assist then please reply or send me a PM.

    Oh, the game is about 95% complete and I would like to get it published in the next few weeks if possible smile

    I'm willing to share revenue but I must say that my first two games have generated zero income as of yet.

    I could possibly scrape up some money to purchase the effects but would prefer if somebody who knew a bit about engineering effects and really loves Defender (like I do), was keen on seeing it re invented smile

    InspectorJ, me neither, and no wonder, right out in the middle of nowhere. Pitcairn sounds like somewhere in Scotland. There is a rather dark side to the Island's more recent history according to another Youtube video, but I'm not interested, nor shall I be watching.

    Funny you should mention Speilberg's War of the Worlds. I watched that last year I think for the first time and really enjoyed it. Forgettable, but entertaining, and that's what it's all about sometimes (gets you through the night). Also enjoyed Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow, kind of a sci-fi Groundhog Day, obviously, but definitely not a waste of time (pardon the parallel).

    Headphaze, I'm not much a Tom Cruise fan either, but for some reason I can overlook the Scientology stuff. Have you watched this? Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief. Disturbing at times, but in terms of a major threat to humanity, it seems pretty harmless to all but those impressionable enough to get involved. Weird stuff though. I still can't decide whether or not it's a scam or viral psychosis.

    Oh, I'm not sure about the Oscars InspectorJ, I don't follow, but probably should pay attention. I don't even know what/who the nominees are. Or is it even at that stage yet? T.V. hasn't been in my life for well over a decade now. Credit to the BBC though, I phone them once every year or two and explain that I have a computer, a monitor and Netflix. And Youtube of course and they accept that. I did let the guy in once, but he didn't seem too rigorous in his inspection duties. Didn't look in my bedroom or kitchen or bathtub or beneath the floorboards etc. When I asked if he wanted to inspect my computer for USB receiver devices, "no, that's ok".
    Anyway, going off...

    Isn't it great, we don't have to wait until next week anymore. I could say a lot more, but I'm exercising some restrain in anticipation of tomorrow's embarrassment.

    Bye for now...

    Hey

    Although it's probably not going to be a problem given that this is a non-profit organisation and the way you intend to use the asset is pretty innocuous, you should nevertheless be aware of what's stated in the Terms of Use for Freesound.org.

    One film I've been interested in lately is Speilberg's "War of the Worlds". Sure, the story isn't particularly great, or faithful to H.G.Wells, but the sound design is excellent.

    I've been trying to figure out how they made the tripod sound: perhaps an over-amplified didgeridoo and/or a low brass instrument. Wonder if anyone else has any thoughts?

    Also interesting what predictions you guys have for the Oscars. I went on a bit of an animation marathon last year and can't decide between rooting for "Zootopia" or "Kubo and the Two Strings", they were both brilliant films.

    Edit: Well hah, I had not thought of googling how the tripod sound was made before this post. Turns out it was a didgeridoo and a djembe.

    Oh my gosh. The sound of the tripedal alien crafts were just spine chilling in that film. Yes I couldn't agree more on your sentiment about the sound design. There's something about sound that it can make a mediocre film in terms of cast and story into a excellent viewing experience (at least for people like us anyway).

    Fascinating

    It's been 11 years since I saw this film, definitely worth a re-view i think. I don't know if I can bear Tom Cruise just yet though, he's someone I can only watch with moderation. A good actor, but with a lot of stigma attached to him which is hard to detach from. I'm talking about the Scientology stuff.

    This is very cool! Thanks for sharing.

    Have you considered using MaxMSP or NI Reaktor to create your synths/plugins? I say this because I am a MacOSX user so I can't use the plug-ins you've created.

    I especially like the Moons of Neptune synth.

    Sounds like a vibraphone instrument playing an augmented 5th chord (e.g. the notes C, E and G-sharp).
