    I think it's a wonderful compliment if people downloaded your sounds a lot. They might not use them, maybe they just like them. Sometimes, they may use them much, much, much later. I've downloaded sounds that I hope to use one day but haven't got around to doing so. Some are pretty cool, some are weird, sometimes they're just fun to listen to. Maybe they'll get used one day. Most people have neither the appropriate software nor the gear to create decent sounds of their own to upload - plus, as I discovered awhile back, if there's a peculiar way your particular browser functions in dealing with scripts, it becomes impossible to properly upload any sounds because you can't fill the 'description' in. I had that issue with Firefox for months.... I've only been able to upload sounds since last week (and none have been moderated yet, so you can't see them, nananah!)

    Dear Die Dancing,
    Thank you for you constructive comments, I was merely asking a question. I rather think it is your attitude that lands the planet in deep foo doo.
    Maybe upload a recording of yourself swearing , that would be funny ha ha.

    Let's have less of that language.
    Yeah, it's not fair to have a download limit if you don't upload any sounds. If you see the people that downloaded my sounds, most have no sounds but many downloads. I think Timbre is the only person who downloaded any sounds with uploaded sounds.
    I don't think it's a good idea. If Bram doesn't and other popular members (with sounds) don't like it, neither do I.

    Yes, AlienXX, please do smile

    I have a teaser for you -> we are nearly ready to ship the new release. It's mainly a maintenance release with a lot of little bugs fixed, and the community sounds are cached locally on the device now, and we introduce a lot of ready-to-use drum/percussion patterns.

    But this new release will also have a new Demo. To wipe all doubts. Still a long way to go, but please listen what you can do with uFXloops, even if you're not a fan of dubstep (well it's not all dubstep).

    https://soundcloud.com/ufxloops/may-i

    I will of course attribute to the original authors of these samples, the main three loops are from freesound.org.

    And if any of you has the enjoyment and time - please help me making the ending of this song even more epic. I'm dreaming of a choir in the end. You can use uFXloops for that in the next days, as this song is completely editable in the App of course.

    Enjoy the new release, it should be out tomorrow by end of day, and tell me what you miss smile

    Perhaps this explains so much. I wasn't able to use my account for awhile either though that fixed itself somehow recently. I started using Midori instead of Firefox, then I could reply to messages and perform uploads properly.

    Remember guys and girls that the developer is looking for your feedback. So if you find something that does not work or you have suggestions for improvement, please contact the developer.
    Also remember that if you can't figure something out, support is just one email away.

    I am actually considering getting an Android device so I can try it out. Just hope I can do it in time for the dare.

    hi everyone,

    i'm looking for this sound too (a dry version would be nice)

    in my opinion this sound appears already in Star Wars IV The New Hope when Obi Wan put down the Power of the Traktor Beam. listen closely to the backround

    here a youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXbLQWQI8S8 ... but the quality isn't good

    i'm sure this sound was also created by the Legend Ben Burtt who produced a lot of unique sounds...

    Diboz nice sound it is very close to the original sound but i think is it not a bit to wet ?? have you try a dryer sound ??

    Hi everyone,

    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.
    See http://www.rodemic.com/accessories/nt45-c

    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 justicesmile )

    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 smile

    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.

    Hello there!
    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.
    Thanks.
    -Jon

    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.
