    Why do you post your sounds here?


    Why?

    I sometimes, nope, rarely do post here to provide sounds to people who want to use for their videos. (The last one was posted on October.) But if I were to do so, I could have done on commons.niconico.jp, which no ones here may know.

    I guess theres some joy to be gotten from giving away one's own artistic creations to people who need to use it as part of their own; like a large scale collaboration. I also like to hear the feedback from people in the comments, usually it's positive.

    Plus, it's nice to be part of a community such as this.

    That's the motivation.

    "Hear, hear!"

    Personally, I probably wouldn't have delved into the world of sound had it not been for this site, which I used for one of my first little university projects. Ever since then, I've felt obligated to contribute some of my own sounds, in the hopes of helping others just as others on this site had helped me.

    And I've stuck around ever since.

    The only reasons I post my sounds here is because it's "free" so I would like people to enjoy HQ Recordings without people paying for it.

    I think I use tags and descriptions as a free online course to improve my English writing skills.
    Seriously, there is not just one reason. At the very early moments I was consciously or not trying to 'snapshot' events so that they didn't get lost in my memory (that's a concern shared by many people in their forties). Later, feedback from the community here was so rewarding that I got hooked, that lasted many years. That fun was over time ago, nowadays uploading is part of my routine duties. Feeel like I'm on my own, writing a book of memories. Sort of.

    If a sound isn't heard by other people and shared, there's no point in creating it, who cares about the tree imo; it's mine and everyone else's at the same time. By the way, guilty pleasure: I listen to my own sounds. I like and dislike some of them, hopefully others will feel the same.

    Other reasons. It makes me feel useful in a pointless futile universe. I've always loved file-sharing. Creative Commons I love; can be used commercially and by individuals without lawsuits and threats. (I don't have delusions of grandeur that my sounds are good enough for big movie studios though).

    Put simply. It's the same for everyone: I like this and you just want others to hear it. The same with writing or painting.

    Sorry to get all pseudo-philosophical.

    I can't help going off-topic, it's the way my mind works, or doesn't.

    Humans stole my scooter when I was a kid. I thought to myself: fuck it, I don't have time to fight or beg, keep it. It will rust. Later I thought: the Sun will expand.

    Sorry, I need to start talking to the void again.

    Trouble runs, far away, in the night.

    If someone told me they don't listen to their own sounds, I would be very suspicious. smile

    Headphaze, it's taught me one thing: to pay closer attention to frequencies, especially in the lows. I'm not there yet, but maybe some day.

    There's about three sounds of mine that I absolutely adore. Two a creation and one a recording. My life is fulfilled if I do nothing else.

    Always nice to hear from you by the way.

    You post sounds for free, and you download for free, see it as a type of donation but instead of money its a sound. Many people do not mind giving away their work due to the fact that most sound recorded with a microphone is not copyrighted, but unique sounds created artistically can be, but even with that, a singular sound is not that hard to make, ussually, its just some people's hobby and what people do for fun in their spare time.

    That's not true. An audio recording can be copyrighted, just like an image or a video recording. with Creative Commons anyone can slap a license on their work.

    If I recorded the audio of my car starting up, I would not think I owned that sound, especially if I recorded someone singing on the street or something and saying I made it. Recording nature in my opinion has no right to be copyrighted, it belongs to everyone, I do not think recording something means you made it, hope ya'll understand what I'm gettin at here

    I applaud the spirit of what you say Kodack, but owning the rights to a recording of a sound is not the same as owning the rights to the sound itself. If I cashed in my pension and went on safari to the deepest jungles of Wibbledonia and recorded the mating whoops of the previously unknown species the Gwibble-gwibble bird, I wouldn't think it fair if my recording was used in the latest Star Wars movie without my permission. If the studio sent their own sound recording expedition to Wibbledonia to record the bird, fair enough - I don't own the birds calls, but I do own the recording I did myself.

    If you wanted to record my car starting up I wouldn't stop you, but since I've already done it (and uploaded), you could use my recording instead - and to be honest, I'm not that fussed about being given credit anyway. However, when I post my unique and spectacular recordings of the Gwibble-gwibble on freesound I might be a bit more selfish on the license terms! smile

    Anyway, Best Christmas regards Kodack - and all the other freesound animals,

    Wibby

    Yes i understand what you are saying, ofcourse you will always need to check for copyrights attached to sounds and never assume.

    And yes, Merry Christmas everybody

    From my own understanding. Recording nature sounds and attaching a license to it is more about the time, work/effort and equipment etc. Or in Wibby's case, being the first to discover and record some hitherto unknown exotic creature from Wibblandia; he deserves the recognition and attribution. By the way, when can we hear that recording Wibby? Go on, blow the pension. smile

    I do however appreciate and understand what you're saying Kodack. But you can sure as hell guarantee that if some big film or TV studio were notified that you used one of their "bird song" recordings on your eg: Youtube channel, you might be looking at a copyright strike or even termination. To add to that. Contrary to what the enlightened think, I don't really think humankind comes out of nature; that's why we need laws written on paper and wear clothes.

    Just to be clear. I don't judge others for their license choices. Another reason for my choice is that I just don't want to be bothered with messages requesting permission to use. As I've mentioned before, most people will attribute without obligation. Some still will even ask, but at least I can keep it to a minimum.

    Just to go back to the original post. It's a wonderful world of sound we have here on freesound, so why not make it as diverse as possible by sharing our infinitely variable creations and recordings?

    And hold your reindeers, it's not even the first day of Christmas yet. I will say though. I hope your life isn't too hard and that your death is swift and silent and painless and in your sleep. And many years from now.

    Alas toiletrolltube, we might have to wait a bit for that.

    As of this moment the Gwibble-gwibble is only a mythical creature I saw in a drunken dream... (It was deep in discussion with a Unicorn about the parallels between the state of US politics and the potential for social corrosion opened up by Brexit.)

    But like the Vampire that cannot be seen in a mirror or photographed, so the Gwibble-gwibble bird's sounds cannot be recorded. It would be for someone with imagination and the skills in Electronic Synthesis to render an Audio Artist's impression. Sadly I have little of the former and none of the latter so would have to pass that challenge on to others.

    In case I do not post again in a timely fashion, I wish you the best salutations for the impending Christmas season toiletrolltube, even if it is a bit early.

    Regards Wibby...

    (p.s. Not that I need to double down on excuses, but I'm preserving the pension fund for the benefit of my good wife who is likely to outlast me by a good few decades.)
