    Hello Bram,
    I have two stories of use of my sounds that can be described as “out of the ordinary” :

    In 2005, I’d been for a week to Napoli recording sounds and moods that I needed for a theater play. I posted a few of them in 2008 on Freesound.
    One day, I received a message from a man living in Japan. he thanked me for the fabulous evening he had spent listening to all my neapolitan recordings. Native of Naples and living for several years in Asia, just by closing your eyes, he had « seen » his city again and traveled in this way of sounds until he found the smells of Napoli.
    It must be said that Napoli is an « open-air theatre » and that all sounds quickly becomes stories !

    In 2009, I uploaded sounds of one big Paris’ railway station (Gare de l’Est) at the request of a young Indonesian.
    He had noticed that I had some sounds from Paris and wanted to know if I had some from the Gare de l’Est and specifically jingle (since picked up by David Gilmour for his song « Rattle that lock » ). He lived, during a trip, a few days in Paris in a flat on the edge of the station. And this jingle was for him his soundtrack of this town.
    I didn’t have this sound in my recordings, so I promised to go through this station the next time I went to Paris ; what I made.
    Sometimes it’s easy to please !

    These kind of exchanges « all over the world » are of the most fine and joyful aspects of Freesound.

    Amicalement,
    Arnaud

    The Music Technology Group is the research institute based in Barcelona, Spain, that has created, maintains and keeps supporting Freesound for now over 10 years. MTG is turning 25 this year and we will be presenting Freesound as one of the most important projects to come out of the MTG since its inception.

    To highlight the diversity of uses of Freesound we would like to ask you if you or someone you know ever used Freesound in any “out of the ordinary” situations. We have asked this kind of question before and heard about people using Freesound to explain to teachers how children with autism experience sound, how dogs can be desensitized to thunder, to provide a soothing song-bird ambience at a child’s burial, how a scream recorded by a student in his bedroom made it to a Hollywood blockbuster, … and many more of these amazing stories.

    To help us discover some more of these out of the ordinary uses, please tell us your story by answering this forum thread smile

    With love,

    The Freesound Team

    Hi!
    We're aware of this error that occurs when a non-english character (e.g. with accents) is added in the tags field. We're going to fix the underlying error so that you can post the sounds. In the future we will look at supporting accents and other characters in tags.
    In the meantime you should be able to submit the sounds if you remove accents or other character markings from the tags.

    Any one of you guys have a Johnny Cash kind of voice. So deep. Maybe you can say: "Johnny Cash shot that poor man" and "under the blue sky of Mexico" for our song. I can not pay you but we'll mention your name in video when the song is over. Thanks smile

    I had this trouble.
    Same error messages etc.

    Finally, I found that the word "café" (accept in title)was refused in tags because accent.
    Maybe an accent in the words you try to tag or something like that ?

    Hi,

    since few months I have repetive problem when I try to desribe uploaded fieldrecordings. The following monit shows:

    "Server Error

    Ouch.. we screwed something up! You found some part of Freesound that's broken.

    Luckily, we'll get an email about it and we'll try to fix it as soon as possible. In the meantime, try some other parts of website we haven't managed to break yet."

    All General MIDI banks of Roland Keyboards have a 'Doo voice' in them:

    But it's just a pitch-shifted singing voice like here:
