The Freesound Project
Freesound is a collaborative database of Creative Commons Licensed sounds. I contribute to it as often as I can. My work often yields interesting and unique sounds, and I love sharing them with others.
Sound I post to Freesound are given a Creative Commons License, which means they are royalty and attribution free. Still, other creators still ask me from time to time if I want credit. Here are those projects.
Xenophyte - Google Play App
Greetings intelligent entity! The Xenophyte application was developed to aid distant troubled seed worlds. A set of gleaner droids will be at your disposal. The vast distances of space result in turn based interaction with our droids. Use these droids to collect resources, craft items, capture malfunctioning droids, identify species, uncover relics, and identify plants. With your aid many seed worlds could be set on a path to success.

Explanation of the Freesound Project;
Freesound was started in 2005 in the Music Technology Group of Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain.
Freesound aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, ... released under Creative Commons licenses that allow their reuse. Freesound provides new and interesting ways of accessing these samples, allowing users to:
- browse the sounds in new ways using keywords, a "sounds-like" type of browsing and more
- upload and download sounds to and from the database, under the same creative commons license
- interact with fellow sound-artists!They also aim to create an open database of sounds that can also be used for scientific research. Many audio research institutions have trouble finding correctly licensed audio to test their algorithms. Many have voiced this problem, but so far there hasn't been a solution.
