    I tried adding one of my dares there, but I don't think Joanna is looking at her messages on soundcloud anymore. I last checked about half a year ago, and at that time, the Joanna's last upload was a year prior.

    Thanks.
    Saturn is definitely worth it, Vintage Warmer is also irreplaceable.

    Nice review. Saturn has been on my 'to get' list for years.

    I was playing with some stock footage from videvo.net and decided to make a True Dective/Crime Drama show intro with sounds from here. Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIJmJpzDF6o

    Besides, uploaders get notified via email about their own comments, but this could be reasonably easy to filter out smile

    The problem with comments at Freesound and at many sites is that the sound uploader gets notified of a commet. But the commentator does not get notified of a response. So, unless the uploader bothers or remembers to come back to check for replies, he/she will not see the replies.

    Meaning: comments are not a good way to have a conversation.

    Oh cool thanks for the heads up. Did the same. Doesn't look like much has changed in a few years though on there :/

    Don't know if the group is still going or if it matters, but came across it in an old thread and added my submission to it.

    People can give tag suggestions as a comment under a sound if the realy want to. I can make my own decision to use it or not.

    Thats my idea about this discussion.

    The system we have now werks fine i think. Keep it simple.

    And I very much agree with this, Klank.


    True, until the original uploader dies or just doesn't care enough to come back and read his comments. Hopefully this site will last a century or more. It's 10 years old already. It's been my experience looking at comments on sounds I listen to that only a handful of Freesounders actually reply to comments.

    OK I haven't finished reading the whole thread yet, but I've been wishing for some time now that Freesound had this feature. Here's an idea. Why not hold the suggested tags in moderation and let the original uploader approve or reject the suggested tags? If he gives no response yay or nay for, say 2 weeks, the request gets sent to a mod instead. He could also opt out of being consulted and click a button that says no thanks, let the mods handle it. You've said the feature has been rarely used in the past, so it theoretically shouldn't become a case of uploaders getting bombarded with tag requests... Right? Personally I would use it. Here's an example of a sound I would use it on.

    You would probably never find this sound unless you knew the name of the specific people/tribe involved, or in what city it took place. I've looked before for native American sounds and not found this, in fact I've found very little really. I only found it because I searched Asuncion, I couldn't find it in Paraguay.I would tag it Paraguay AsunciĆ³n native-american indio native chant ceremonial initiation ceremony voice male-voice singing rattle acoustic lowfi field-recording
    Perhaps the uploader could approve a certain user eventually, whitelist him or her as a trusted tagger for his or her sounds. Maybe that would be complicating things too much. I think things would be a lot easier to find if this feature were available, even if to only whitelisted users.

    That would take care of many nines ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_availability#Percentage_calculation ) of people

    I would still be scared about this because of "hate" tagging. User A may have uploaded a number of sounds, but suddenly develop a feud against User B and start tagging his sounds with rude words.
    This might go unnoticed for quite a while. And when noticed could be quite a lot of work to undo.
    Also, would not be traceable back to the offending user (like comments are)...

    I used to love this feature, but now see so much potential for mis-use and abuse that I would really recommend restricting it to a few trusted users. The idea to give this capability only to whitelisted users sounds good to me.

    Hello

    I am a singer songwriter from the south of England looking for a studio to record in. Specifically looking for a great producer I can work with that can help me build up a track.

    Does anyone know of any good studios/producers that can help? I am looking for a quality studio, but at a reasonable price.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated

    Thank you very much klankbeeld and Corsica_S for your help.

    Ok, if Azden is out, that will leave me with the mixprea d 302.

    Which one should I go for? And why would I choose one over the other?

    Thank you again and my apologies if I am asking too much.
