I can verify that this is a bug on our side that appeared after an upgrade we deployed last thursday.
This might affect all web forms in Freesound accessed through https (not only the login form).
We'll look into that tell you when it is fixed. In the meanwhile, please use the non-https login form.
Thank you for your understanding,
I use the Rode NT4 and it has the same NT45-C / interchangeable cardioid capsule as on the NT5, NT55 and NT6 microphones.
So maybe you can search on NT4 as well.
I am very glad with the results. Listen to my recordings. I think this is a nice example: http://freesound.org/people/klankbeeld/sounds/251252/
I agree with afleetingspeck. Not too much effort to learn, definitely worth it. It's lots of fun actually.
It's nice to have all the community sounds as well as being able to use your own.
Really interesting that you can assign samples as instruments in the pianoroll.
Look forward to learning more.
Thanks for a great 'app' (although I think the word app doesnt do it justice )
Ok I get all that - I guess I'm just surprised at the relative amounts of downloads to uploads. It makes one realise how many people use the site. I'm really happy that my sound has been useful to so many people. Freesound is a great resource.
It actually took about five mins to look through the pages of people who downloaded my file, just a tad shorter than going out recording, editing, mastering and uploading!
I wish I did have more time to create and upload content, as it is i'm flat out meeting deadlines for projects
Thanks for your support and suggestions. Yes, copy-pasting links works for now. I will try installing an MP3 decoder as an addon, but hopefully that's only temporary. I believe that the previews are always in MP3 format, regardless of the original format. And all of this slowly makes me realise what a nightmare sound must be on a web page.
Thanks - I couldn't work out what was wrong. Have been a user for quite a while and never had problems logging in before. Kept getting 403 error messages when I tried to login, tried to register as a new user or use the contact form to say there was a problem. Changing https to http solves the issue for me. Problem seems to affect multiple browsers. Hope the developers will sort quickly.
I recently found freesound but every time I tried to register/login, I would get 403 errors and a bunch of guides that didn't work, as well as lots of broken links on freesound's part. When pages refuse to load, check the URL to make sure the ".org" is in the link, and when you run into the 403 exception, change the https to http, then reenter your information. This should be a fix for most people that couldn't login like me, as well as a notification the the devs to try and work this out.
Weird, I can play MP3s on Freesound using Firefox on Ubuntu. Usually it’s Linux that has problems like that, not the other way round! Although, I do have the Fluendo decoder installed.
As an interim solution, the format of a Freesound sample is displayed underneath the licence, so if you notice that a sample you’re interested in is an MP3, you can right-click the download button and click ‘Copy Link Location’ to send the link to the clipboard. Not ideal, I know, but just a suggestion.
Last time when I tried to use the quotation marks (in google style) - it did not worked, but now it seems to work.
Unfortunately - no results on nt55.
BTW, nt55 is not matched pair of nt5, it's a different model. "Theoretically" it's the nt5 with paired cardioid and matched omni capsules (there is no wai to buy paired omnis for nt5 separately), but specs look different. My guess is, that nt55 in cardio setup can be slightly worse than nt5, not to mention that nt55 is 2x more expensive due to included omnis.
to search more decent do not search on n5 but "nt5" and "nt5 matched"
So with these " things in front and behind.

the indexing of sounds in the search server is not done immediately after sounds are approved.
Hence, and depending on several factors, it might take some time for your sounds to appear in search results.
In any case, your sounds have been indexed now
