  • Ambient Sound-Sources

    I don't know if this guy releases his field-recordings under CC ... the material is just great:

      I sent Sany a message yesterday via SoundCloud, asking if it's OK to use the files they post up on SC in future projects of mine and this is the reply I just got back..

      "Dan, yes, of cause! I will keep upload the new tracks to the sound cloud. It is my hope that you will find it useful. If you like my tracks, you may also repost it. Have a nice day Sany"

        That's pretty damn cool...

        Perhaps this post should be stickied... Not that it is going anywhere fast immediately, but it could get lost eventually
        I may not post anything useful, but at least I do it often

            Great stuff there! Remember paying some insane amount of dollars for CDs Heart of Asia, Red Box Nature, etc back in the day. Now you can find similar quality (or sometimes better) recordings for free online. I assume everyone on this site is on freesound.org ?

              Freesound is great--another good resource is the Internet Archive.

                Those tracks are not dloadable.
                Are you intending on real-time recording the mp3 from your sound card?
                I haven't yet auditioned the tracks, but they'd have to be pretty unique for me to grab and use mp3.
                EDIT - I had a listen now and see they are intended as being used by others...I guess...but why didn't he make them dloadable as .wav files???

                  Where at Internet Archive? It's a big place.
                  EDIT - Ok, I get it now. I can't audition without having to open into a new page. Anyway to audition on the same page?
                  I see the speaker icon, but it doesn't do anything if I click on it.

                    Yeah, probably should have at least linked the audio archives there. As clumsily demonstrated on my last release, I've been having fun with broadcast voices behind really long drones--so I like shopping around for public domain old radio shows, and The NASA audio collection has a bunch of mission broadcasts. There's a search bar, you can look up field recordings, underwater sounds, famous speeches, or netlables.

                    the speaker icon is only identifying the media type; speaker for audio, a little film strip for video, etc. I can't see any way to audition from the collection page.

                      Thanks for those links.
                      Internet Archives is a true rabbit hole. I tried using the 'advanced search' and that worked out better when looking for particular things.
                      I ran across a gem of shortwave numbers broadcasts said to be from worlds intelligence agencies. Might make for a great source for a AO community project.

                        http://www.websdr.org/ is great for shortwave sample sources, copyright will vary depending on what's being recorded. http://k3fef.com:8901/ has hell listed, it's kind of bland any time i tune in. But if one clicks around, just a slight change in frequencies can really alter the sounds on some of this stuff, with bonus points during lightning storms.

                        re: archive.org I've used samples from Prelinger archives in the past too, the video sections can also be a trove.

                          Thanks for the links. Spent some time learning how to operate it. Not much going on at the moment. I search the spectrum later tonight to see if it gets any busier.

                            Yellowstone Sound Library.

                            All sounds are in the public domain, are downloadable and can be used without limitation. I couldn't find any crows, but there is a raven.

                              Another outstanding source well worth a mention is freetousesounds.com..and although it's not free, they are currently offering a one-time $20 New Year deal, that gets you access to over 359 GBs of both RAW and Processed found sounds and expertly recorded field recordings. There are two different "packs" on offer, but at $20 it's madness not to grab both. The couple behind the site/service..Libby and Marcel..are constantly adding more sounds all the time and are active on Facebook.

                              All sounds are hosted online and you can download either one file / sample at a time..or download them all if you have the space and bandwidth to do so..it up to you,
