Sound Search Suggestions

Search Updated

Search Updated

We’ve been listening to your sound requests as well as the search logs. It seems that like us, many of you are have issues spelling. (no offense)

Many of the requests are for sounds that we have in the catalog but that the requester has somehow misspelled.

The solution? We’ve integrated an auto suggest search feature that will suggest words based on our sound catalog. It shows you what we have in our database. Pretty cool huh?

So give it a try and give us some feedback. Thanks for using SoundBible.com and be sure to tell your friends about us. :)

  2. New MP3 Player – We’ve commissioned a custom mp3 player that shows you what the sound looks like. It renders an image of the wave just like Audacity or other sound apps. By visualizing the sound you can better get a feel for it’s dimensions. It also includes a volume control, position sidebar, and a display of the sound time.

  3. More Download Options – We’ve now added a 3rd download option. Zip file download. If you are on a slow connection or just wan to download the wav files faster then you should try the new .zip file downloads. This feature compresses the .wav files for faster download.

Sharing Sounds with SoundBible.com

Thanks for Sharing!

Thanks for Sharing!

We want to give a big thanks to those people who have shared sounds with SoundBible.com We recently implemented a share your sounds feature, so that users could share their audio with other like minded individuals.

Big thanks to those of you willing to share. It’s also kind of fun to see your recording posted online, if you are into that sort of thing.

How to Share?
We attempted to make the process as straightforward and user friendly as computerly possible.

You can share either an mp3 or wav sound recording. MP3 is the most likely choice, but it doesn’t matter so long as it’s an .mp3 or .wav file.

If you are looking for something to record with you can always download audacity.

Most of the time we use a Zoom H4 handy recorder, the quality on this little mobile recorder is about as professional as it gets, and you can usually pick one up for around $200 if you shop around.

If you don’t want to shell out $200 you can always use the mic on your pc or cell phone. Most of our sound effects are used for school media projects, flash games, fun, or similar. Those applications don’t’ require the super detailed audio that a million dollar movie would.

So if you are interested in helping out SHARE YOUR SOUNDS

If you need help recording then read How to Record Sounds

Thanks again to all those people that are helping build our public sound collection. We sincerely appreciate the effort.

SoundBible Search Upgrade

Search Update

Search Update

SoundBible.com has upgraded our search and tag features. We had a few issues with searching our sounds, the main one was that the results were gradually becoming more and more unrelated.This is because of our tagging system.

Before searching for a term would show you all sounds that had that word anywhere within the sounds data.

Now searching for a term will first give you the exact term, and if there is no term it will then perform a broader search.

As an example searching for pig before would yield both pig, pigs, and pigeon since pigeon has a pig in it. Now however it will only yield pig.

Hope this helps everyone out.

Feedback welcome!
