bloody fucking awesome!
would be even better if in one file for download....
yet that's alright
saves from having to record/edit/catalog them from vinyl
like we used to do....
collect those old BBC soundFX records....
would always search for them in broadcast studio source libraries
hipster used record shops
& even thrift stores
fuck....
looks like need going through that list of 16k bbc sounds starting today

I'm about half way through downloading all of the files.. not sure if zipping it all up and uploading to archive.org violates their terms of use or not..

Of course I have tons of BBC sound effects records.. I can only assume that some of these sounds have been used on the records

started going through it telling myself eye have to have like maybe 1/10th of these samples archived...
yet still have some old habits also
like sitting down linear editing movie audio making samples
did that for couple hours last night
btw thanks for archiving
if you need some server space for the file link somewhere
we can come up with somewhere besides archive.org

Well fortunately you can download the page from a browser and it'll drag the sounds files with it and you can list a 100 sounds per page and I can queue about ten pages for download at time and it's only logged me out once. So a total of 160 downloads.. I didn't try using a http page ripper .. not sure if it would have worked with their pseudo login license rights thingy.

So this way there'll at least be some preservation of the meta data otherwise the sounds files are all named numerically.

You're awesome!

I think this would take me about two months to download on my connection, and then I'd probably be a lazy asshole and never use any of it.

Interested in hearing recorded works employing the source though...
