As mentioned last week, the OLPC project has provided some 8.5GB of Creative Commons-licensed sound. Unfortunately, in an all-too-familiar scenario, the servers didn’t stand up to its instant popularity. Good news — most of the content is available now via torrent, with additional content on the Internet Archive.

We need a Few Good Seeds, so grab that torrent and seed it! (I am…)

olpc-sound-samples on Mininova (should be on other trackers, as well)

And previously…

8.5 GB of Free, CC-Licensed Samples from the OLPC Project, and OLPC Music Tools

Oh, yeah, and no one need feel guilty about using the samples. That was kind of the idea. (Not to mention, this could be a good sample source for working on projects for the OLPC.)

  • I just read the usage statistcs. "We transmitted 5TB of sound sample data yesterday…" Wow.

    Not meaning to sound like a jerk, but the Mininova torrent has 'only' 4,3 Gigs of sounds, it seems, not 8.5.

    Great move though, I'm very curious what kind of sounds are in there! Thanks for linking.

  • Apparently not everything is up there… if there's an updated torrent, I'll post it.

    Which samples are [in|ex]cluded in the torrent?? Just the 44K files perhaps.. What sounds come from Digidesign and M-Audio?? Everything listed on the samples wiki page seems to be Berklee created.

  • Almost unbeleivable free resource, thanks for the tip.

    Now for 48 hours of downloading 🙂
