    You don't need to use a web application. iTunes already can import files and convert them to mp3 for you. In the Files → Add File to Library dialog, right click on the .wav file and choose Create mp3 version. You can select multiple .wav files before right clicking to do them all at once.

    Note 1: if you have a one-button mouse, hold down the Control key while clicking to simulate a right click.

    Note 2: if you do not see "Create mp3" in iTunes, then go to Preferences → General → Import Settings, click on the "Import Using" drop down, and select Mp3 Encoder.

    If the issue is on YouTube, send a copyright dispute and explain more or less what I said above. If you can pin down the exact sound that was used in the copyright-claimed song (it should be one of the sounds you've used in yours as well), then it helps to give the Freesound link to it in the dispute message to prove your argument. Then they should release their claim within 30 days.

    I'm not sure how the dispute process works on other sites, but I would expect them to be similar.

    And if the dispute can't be resolved, then the last resort is to use a different sound in your music. As frustrating and unfair as that is, there isn't much more besides legal action itself.

    Hi, I would love to see this app also (but it's been several years since the OP last wrote anything about it, so I hope all is well).

    After 2 hours of research, I finally found something that allows you to download freesound content to Dropbox when using an iPad: Downloader by Savy Soda

    The problem is not with Freesound, but rather the unfortunate result of people downloading sounds from here, using them raw in (for example) commercial music tracks which they then distribute and publish under a label. The label then go through their standard copyright procedure (such as YouTube content ID) to automatically detect if someone else uploads audio that is similar to their now copyrighted audio, thus preventing anyone else from using the free sounds we provide here.

    It sucks and completely negates the purpose of us uploading sounds here, but there is little we can really do except to file copyright disputes (which, giving this explanation, usually works - at least it has for me every time so far).

    To anyone out there that does use Freesound content in their commercial music tracks, do take into consideration how you publish your track, as you may well be preventing others from using the sounds you yourself have used.

    so at about --- 1am I turned off all the commercials and such just to play dj with the freesound site OK nothing but tag searches and playing a few selections from this tag or that tag in a mixed audio ... then rendered the recording in audacity that it recorded --- and made a video from these mixed audio recordings. NP uploaded the video at about 4am to youtube then about 1pm youtube informed me of a copyright infringement and if I dont want ads on my video then I need to remove this section of sound.. OK WHY really I don't do this ever... EVER but today give freesound a chance and OH NO === so unless this gets solved IDK I guess it was good for a moment.

    lets go to the video I have already removed the audio copy written stuff-- you think?

    How can I help?

    I'd like to volunteer my time as a moderator. I have 3 years experience as a Software Quality Analyst/Requirements Analyst Certified with the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB).

    All that means is that I can follow directions and point out when a requirement is not met. I've also been a music maker, both digital and instrumental (violin, piano, voice) I have firm grasp of recording using different mics, processing recordings using software tools and working with different file formats.

    Please let me know how I can help!

    Thank you!
    Mandy

    Until I realized people were literally taking my sounds and selling them on other websites and claiming it as their own sound.
    So I had issues with many users asking me why they couldn't use my sound on Youtube due to copyright claims.
    Having my license set to at least Attribution 3.0 Unported (CC BY 3.0) gave me some control.
    Although I understand that I could still have the same problems irregardless of the license change.

    Well that just plain sucks. I didn't realize people had the nerve to do such things. So sad. In this case, I do agree that some type of copyright should be applied to all the sounds uploaded. I just wonder if it can be worded better as to not scare off someone who might want to use them as part of a commercial project, but has no intention of selling the sound itself as their own? That way you still retain the legal right to at least deter such behavior?

    Greetings, audiophiles,

    I was wondering if any of you could make me a vocal tag for music saying "Mendeleev", kind of like the ones used by Keys n Krates, Flosstradamus, Troyboi, etc? Probably a male voice. Thanks!

    --- Mendeleev

    I was having the same issue with a Zoom recorder. However, it came with a wired remote that plugged in to the recorder. I found that using the remote to start and stop recording eliminated the click at the beginning and end of the recording. I'm not sure if the HN4 has a remote, however. If it does I'd give it a try.

    The people that use sounds for sale or to claim their own have no creativity, those bastards won't get far hopefully. Thanks for the sounds I use them in sets as samples.

    I completely understand where everyone is coming from. I totally agree that credit should be given when credit is due/asked for.

    But what is a realistic and agreeable way to do that?

    There is no way in the world a director/producer is going to be receptive to "Hey you gotta put this guys screen-name and Freesound page in the credit roll because I used his ambience track"

    Any thoughts? Solutions?
