Yes you can - if you recorded it. TR-808 is a synthesizer, and if you record or create any works with it, it is just like any other synthesizer.....you own the works. Also if you create 808 inspired sounds with another synthesizer, you own that as well. Roland can not copyright a sine wave with a pitch envelope on it, or a noise generator. I have recorded ...

I'd prefer to have it just chopped into sections 4-5 minutes long and have them labeled a,b,c,d,e etc. It makes it easy to import a short section when you only need 30 seconds of ambience but then you can piece them together if you need long sections.

We did a whole tonebenders episode on this topic with Paul Virostek. I personally edit what I need, backup the originals and then never think of them again. Dustin keeps all of it and I have no idea how he goes back through the source recordings. I find soundminer to be a huge asset for this kind of thing, because it lets me tag the files as I see fit and ...

Freesound.org is a user-submitted collection of free sounds, of varying quality and intent but the search function might allow you to find what you need. There are four different licenses used on that page, so make sure to know the terms and restrictions (some prohibit commercial use, some require attribution). You can filter by license using the right ...

A procedure that would definitely work: for each file ${f}.wav, Split it up to M/S stereo, i.e. to a file ${f}_M.wav and a file ${f}_S.wav. For instance with ffmpeg -i ${f}.wav -filter_complex "[0:0]pan=1c|c0=0.5 * c0 + 0.5 * c1[mid];[0:0]pan=1c|c0 = 0.5 * c0 + -0.5 * c1[side]" -map "[mid]" ${f}_M.wav -map "[side]" ${f}_S.wav If f.wav is actually mono, ...

If you're looking for mechanics, latches, doors, cells and the like (and not simply male prison walla), I had a lot of luck recently with a really reverberant park bathroom and doing a lot of door slams, locks, metal manipulation in there. Slowing those down to half speed doubles the reverb time / sense of space and bulks up the sound of the mechanics as ...

it seems that rackarrack has an audio to midi converter inside. The plugin is for guitar sounds but you can probably have a look at the code and see how this is made. There's also aubio with a command line dedicated to audio to midi conversion aubionotes same thing here, you can probably have a look at the source code.

I don't know about free and open source but ableton does this with a right click on an audio file > convert to midi Maybe you could extract this midi out of the trial version or something like that?

sounds like you're some combo of music supervisor or music editor

I'd prefer option a), because I often end up with an ambience recording, that stops exactly where I want it to continue. It is a little bit more work, but in the end there is added value if you can decide by yourself where those representative sections are. Another option would be to have markers in the recording that point out the representative sections ...

I found some walla/crowd sounds on soundsnap.com. They are titled Urban... You can easily tell what they are saying though so I am not sure if that is what you are looking for but those are the best I can find. -Hope this helps.

I live in Dubai and have some ambience a but if you could give me an idea of exactly what you are looking for then I might be able to help. If I don't have any in my library I could go and get you specific sounds if you want. There are modern and older areas of Dubai so lots of variety. Let me know if I can help.

That was actually the one I was going to suggest. You may find some luck in the DigiFX or BBC sets. The DIGI A set has some great material for foreign, especially the traffic recordings. As for any other small botique library sets along those lines of what you want for Middle East, I'm not aware of anything else out there aside from the Tonsturm set. I'm ...

I have a "to edit" folder on my hd where i copy all raw files if i don´t have the time to edit them right away, which is the common situation. When i find the time, i edit the single sounds, clean them up with RX, change gain(if needed) and write metadata into them (twisted wave). After that i rename them and save them into the dedicated folders and import ...

I've found in past experiences that 5.1 ambiences are great for a bed, but you would be best off with layering in some stereo tracks in order to create a wider sound field. The distinct stereo tracks will widen your soundscape, a 5.1 ambience doesn't have the same perceived width because you are sending very similar sound to all the speakers.

I recently made records in Vietnam in 5.1 also in the jungle. But 'Jungle' is a very wide term, so if you could be more specific, I can check if I have something for you. For example the jungle in Vietnam was very misty and quiet and completely different for example to a jungle in brazil. Also, if you are working now on the filmset, why are you not ...

I always try searching for creative commons stuff first. This is the best I could find after a short search of CC0 licensed material. https://www.freesound.org/people/urupin/sounds/122614/
