    As a 30 minute old user, I really don't have that much experience directly with your site. That said I'm a friend of the Creative Commons and Free Open Source Software. After using the site for just a few minutes and seeing the depth and quality of what's here on freesound.org, I was amazed. And I started downloading. After 20 or so minutes, freesound popped up with a suggested donation screen, and I donated via paypal from the United States. Very easy to do. The payment is in euros, and paypal makes the conversion before you accept the payment.

    I do not donate lightly though. On almost any US non profit you can go to their search bar and type in Form 990 or tax filings, and get to their financial statements. I know the laws are different in Spain, but I had to dig a bit to understand the relationship between freesound, MTG, and the Phonos Foundation and why donations go to Phonos instead of directly to freesound. You see a lot of US non profits doing the same thing with subsidiaries for the same purpose. A good example would be like when you donate to Wikipedia, you're actually donating to the Wiki Media Foundation, not Wikipedia.

    As a humble suggestion - think about adding a quick blurb about the Foundation on your about page. The relationship actually makes me more inclined to donate.

    Best,

    I'd be happy to make an occasional donation to Freesound, but I would need to be able to do so in US Dollars. Thanks

    Check out: https://freesound.org/help/faq/#licenses

    Simply, you can do whatever the heck you want with a sound if it has the "Creative Commons 0 License" ("Public Domain"). That includes making money off of it, without any need to credit/attribute the original creator.

    The remaining licenses are "Attribution" licenses, which means you MUST credit/attribute the original creator if you use them. This can simply be a little note in the credits section of your game.

    Be careful though, one of the attribution licenses is non-commercial ("Attribution Non-Commercial"), which means you cannot use the sound for commercial gain (e.g. to make money). The older, retired "Sampling+" license is also non-commercial, though that license is rarer to find on this site.

    In short, it seems like you'd be best sticking to sounds and music that is in the public domain (e.g., it has the "Creative Commons 0 License") which you can filter in your search. You can also consider those with an "Attribution" license, but you would need to credit the uploader for each sound you use with that license.

    If someone uploads a sound that is copyrighted, the moderators will usually pick up on it during the moderation process. Though, occasionally some sounds do slip through, notably if the uploader lies and claims they created the sounds themselves when they were actually ripped from a commercial library.

    In this case, the fault is most certainly on the uploader, but that fault might not be recognized until some time later when someone finds a match from elsewhere.

    In that time, many users will no doubt have downloaded the sound - so what happens to those that downloaded it?

    Well, if it was a very recognizable sound or piece of music, there is a higher chance that the original creators might notice it if you use it (of course, this depends entirely on whether your project receives much attention).

    But more likely, those that downloaded the sound are unlikely to be at any risk of legal action, as in the vast majority of cases, it won't be worth the time and money for the creator to take you to court (unless your project is earning big $$$), nor will they likely ever find out that you used it.

    With that said - to anyone that does find a sound on this site that they think is copyrighted, do report it!

    Thanks, folks!

    The timpani and tubular bells are ready as soon as I get assistance with tagging the packs (each timpani drum note was sampled 24 times, in increasing velocity from pianissimo to fortissimo - this makes individual sample tagging an arduous process as you can well imagine)!

    The TamTam gong is up; you can find it here: https://freesound.org/people/pjcohen/packs/23301/

    While waiting for the others, here’s a smaller pack, it’s a set of samples of an African “Doumbek” goblet hand drum. You can check it out here:

    Enjoy!

    hi..

    I think the subject that uploads the material is not the site but the site user

    But if the copyright is marked as cc0 but the uploader is illegal

    I wonder what happens to the person used it ???

    What exactly do you need? What should be the language in which the words are spoken?

    Can't tell if you're serious or joking lol. I literally say three times, Brazilian Portuguese. I don't even mention another language haha

    I'm just looking for a Male or female voice to sing or say some phrases in Portuguese for me.

    Sorry, if I didn't do this right. I reread my OP and I can't see any mystery...I don't know what else you're looking for.

    thanks for your help! smile

    I would recommend downloading a whole bunch of sounds you're after (wolves/dogs, footsteps (on whatever surface), clothes rustling, breathing/panting, etc.) and then have a go at pick 'n mixing them together.

    There are quite a few good wolf sounds here:
    https://freesound.org/search/?q=wolf

    And some clothes rustling sounds here:
    https://freesound.org/search/?q=clothes&f;=&s;=score+desc&advanced;=0&g;=1

    Of course, if you have a recorder, you can record some of the clothes rustling/footsteps yourself!

    First time post, hopefully I'm in the right place. I'm trying to find a sound effect / sample for a pack of wolves chasing someone/something. Similar to this movie clip. Any suggestions on where to look?

    Thanks!

    There is another EL-Jay on the forum, so I use EL-Jay2 login. EL-Jay too wink

    I'm DJ & (ghost)producer.
    I have radioshows (TranceStoned and PsyStoned) under my own name and do for some years ghost producing for other DJ's (I'm payed to shut my mouth, for which DJ's) who cannot or don't have the time to produce or remix.

    I use for producing FL Studio (signature bundle) with plugins: Sylenth1 (for Trance) and Serum (for Psy).
    I use for digital mixing: MixMeiser Fusion since 2009.

    I'm here at freesound for jingles I can need for my radioshows, effects, voiceovers or what ever I can use.

    If you want to know or listen what I do at DJ mixing, you can find my radioshows and sets (free listening) at my website forum: http://www.urdance4u.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=32
