Freesound – sound sample collection

For music makers, one of the great sources for sounds is the Freesound Project. From the “what is freesound?” page: “The Freesound Project aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, … released under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus License. The Freesound Project provides new and interesting ways of accessing these samples, allowing users to

* browse the sounds in new ways using keywords, a ‘sounds-like’ type of browsing and more
* up and download sounds to and from the database, under the same creative commons license
* interact with fellow sound-artists!”

A remarkable resource. Where else could you find a recording of a tire being rolled around on sandy pavement?

  1. I’m reading this blog and your website daily. I listen to the stream from the website as I work. Don’t know a thing, but will be able to use all the right words when I talk to our orchestra kids. A whole new world of fascinating possibilities. Thank YOU!
