pdsounds launched

by Hugh

Stephan, a hard-core LibriVox volunteer/admin (maker of the LV poster), has launched a new exciting project: pdsounds.org …(pd for “public domain”). About:

With recording devices and microphones pdsounds volunteers acoustically discover the beauty of the world. From the million sounds of things to the pure waves of sinus. Our goal is to record it all and make it available for free.

The project looks great (and the design looks familiar! ;-) ) … and it should be a welcome addition to the free audio world. There are a few other such libraries around, notably freesounds …but the main difference here is license: while freesound uses a creative commons license, pdsounds is all public domain – that is, can be used for whatever reason with no attribution, no worries about commercial/non-commercial etc. There might be some other differences.

Anway, I have contributed my first sound (thanks to Jer’s coffee making skills).
