    In his defense, he retired my sounds after asking him to.
    However, that's the only defense I can make of him.

    Perhaps, Timbre, we should take more direct actions? I understand your will to catch him using every possible strategy, but it starts to feel a bit ridiculous and I think we should take a more direct approach. Don't you agree?

    I don't think any harm was done or you caused any offense.

    A few seconds in one of those cool sounds remind me of the data tapes of our dear old home computers like the ZX Spectrum or Commodore 64 smile

    Single Windows DLL files or sets of DLL files glued together interpreted as RAW PCM sound files
    of various sample rate/bit depth parameters.

    This is nothing short of awesome!
    As I was listening it reminded me of something. It threw me back to my teens: actually, I done this before. - I loading game files into audio editors on my Amiga computer! I used to go looking for and rip the game and music sounds (ooops!, Yes, I know, copyright infringement!). - My music was not being published anywhere, so I can say those sounds remained for my own private use. Plus, there was no internet back then and I certainly did not know anything about copyright in those days.
    Anyway... I digress...
    The point being that I collected many sounds of the data itself. Some of which I eventually used in little music tunes. - This was back in the early 90s! Who would have thought I would not only be doing this again, but actually doing it together with a group of people over the internet!

    So, thanks Trebblofang for taking me back to my younger days smile
    And these files are certainly amongst the best I ever heard.

    I think you're confusing an adjective associated with the (perceived) characteristic of a sound with its usefulness. Meaning, kb7clx found the sound itself as boring without thinking about it's potential use. In fact, I can extend that to say that most sounds in almost any sound library are boring as standalones. Just listening to the sound without assuming that it will be used for future productions, the sound probably did sound "plain" as AlienXXX pointed out.

    Now it's my turn to have a listen to the sounds. grin

    Yep, this can sometimes be the problem when I have too much to drink when reading/posting: completely missing the point, I also get carried away with myself. Still, I personally wouldn't have described them as boring, but I can see how others might and especially some of my own sounds. God, the amount of times I've told myself to stay away from freesound when drinking.

    Oh dear,
    the images used on all the SoundEffectsFactory and SoundEffectsArchive videos are ,
    (surprise-surprise), not created by Kyle and are copyrighted ...

    I'm sure Kyle has obtained permission, (e.g. bought a license),
    to use these copyrighted images on his YouTube channels ;¬)

    Hello,

    can anyone make a sample of female whisper saying "THE WAVE".
    I generated something with online text2speech app and then processed it with vocoder, but it still sounds very unconvincing, unnatural and dirty in the mix...

    Here's the link for an MP3 example of what I'm looking for:

    <a href="http://picosong.com/evmr" rel="nofollow">http://picosong.com/evmr</a>

    It should be similar to this, maybe "THE" should be a bit faster, natural.

    Thanks a lot!

    Alex

    kb7clx does have a point: Some of the sounds are indeed "plain" and not very interesting. And since many of the sounds are similar, listening to a lot of them in sequence must be quite boring.
    I apologize for that and I thank you all for your patience and effort in participating.

    I am afraid that, as with many experiments, the experimentation itself is repetitive and boring and the exciting bit will be the analysis of the results.

    Firstly. I don't think there is such a thing as a "boring" sound, all sounds have potential for creative purposes. Secondly. As this is an experiment, we can't expect these kinds of sounds to blow your mind; it's more about an idea. As for what the thinking is behind this idea, I have no clue, but I find it inspiring nonetheless.
