    download more files with 1 button


    Hi,

    I wanted to download more than 100 "scream" sounds and it was really frustrating to press "download" at each pack\sound ....could you please provide a feature for downloading large amounts of music?

    Hi,

    We generally don't like the idea of offering a way to "quickly" download search results because we want to give sounds and their authors more presence on the website, and we want to make sure our "download only" users understand that this is a place where sounds are uploaded by other users and that the collaborative spirit of Freesound is very important. We are considering giving the option to download all sounds of a bookmark category at once. This means you could add sounds to the bookmark category (directly from the search results page) and then download them with one click. However this is something about which we have not yet taken any decision.

    Cheers,

    frederic

    I think this would be good, particularly for packs. The contributor has grouped some sounds in a pack, and when finding a sound we like, the pack is drawn to our attention, which is great. On viewing the pack, people are likely to want one or more related sounds in the pack as well as the sound originally found, and it seems natural to provide a way to do this. One of those checkbox arrangements would do it nicely: a checkbox next to each sound, plus another at the top to select/deselect all, and a download button to download the selected ones.
