Review of The Freesound Project by Rob Myers

The Freesound Project web site is a Free Culture sound repository
similar to OpenClipArt for illustration, Project Gutenberg for text or
the Prelinger Archive for film. Launched in May 2005 in Barcelona by the
Music Technology Group of Pompeu Fabra University, it quickly attracted
contributors and an audience from around the world.

Freesound is a sound repository rather than a music or audio repository.
It contains samples of noises rather than of music or spoken word
recordings. If you do want music there are several excellent music sites
elsewhere on the Internet, from an artistic point of view notably Sal
Randolph's OpSound. But these focus on completed tracks rather than raw
sound materials, and are limited to music. Freesound has no such limitation.
