Default Take drop.io

Rapidshare is not to share rapidly it is to let you pay quickly. I'd rather prefer newsgroups (alt.binaries....) or (up to 100 MB) the free and waitless http://drop.io website where you make "drops" up to 100 MB. Or multiple drops if you need more. The uploader only pays if he wants a drop bigger than 100 MB. The downloader never pays.

If you use dropbox.com you got 2GB of space and a filesize limit of 300MB each. If you use the dropbox software, then there is no filesize limit.

Just thought I'd share a video/sound test with you all using scenes from a childhood favourite of mine. Youtube massacred the quality of the sound though......

Some of the explosions cutting out is deliberate. For that test I was emulating a limitation of old sound editing where you could only have so many sounds playing due to limited track/sound editing capabilites during that era. It was also a result of stopping and starting the tapes again when doing the sound editing on old equipment. Also as a result in old films and productions they often had the same explosion sound play two or three times in a row. Obviously these limitations dont exist today but in someways it can remove a classic trait of using the library. I'd defintly recommend it if anyone does a period production using them to give it that extra bit of authenticity.

You could consider it an insight as to what Thunderbirds could have sounded like if they did a proper digital sound transfer of the sounds from the original tapes instead of badly dubbing out of place sounds over the original mono track............ Thanks again.

James, you are simply great! Thanks for taking the time to take those sound effects out and share them with us! These more than certainly should come in handy to me in the near future. As i'm the SFX editor for IZFAS (Invader Zim Fan Animated Series)

What a complete joke; RapidShare don't let free users download without 13-minute waits in-between each download.

No chance of uploading to a proper server? Can't Fanderson not provide you with server space?

And which links on your 1st post contain explosions, missile shots, gun shots and fly-bys? Are the explosion effects contained in the "Guns" link? And the updates are confusing; just which files on your 1st post have been updated?

Missiles and guns

The flybys are found in the vehicle rars.
The updates contain an assorted mix of the above which wasn't in the first release.

If you can suggest a place I can try to upload these thats:

1) Free
2) Files dont expire after no downloads after a while.
3) Has either no limit on the size of the files or has a limit of at least files that are 100mb in size.

Then I'll try to reupload them. As far as I know fanderson doesn't host its own files.
