Freesound ~ Open Source Sounds

Freesound aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, … released under Creative Commons licenses that allow their reuse. Freesound 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
  • upload and download sounds to and from the database, under the same creative commons license
  • interact with fellow sound-artists!

We also aim to create an open database of sounds that can also be used for scientific research and be integrated in third party applications. Using the Freesound API researchers and developers can access Freesound content and retrieve meaningful sound information such as metadata, analysis files and the sounds themselves.

Lacinato ABX is the only cross-platform ABX and shootout blind testing software for audio. It allows double-blind ABX testing of audio files (seeing if you can tell which file is being played), as well as “shootouts” (picking your favorite from a shuffled, anonymized list). Or you can just use it as a convenient way to switch between files (maintaining the current play position, if you like.
