I just discovered that the freesound project has developed a library called mootcher that integrates the freesound sample library into your app! I think this is a perfect match for Ardour
i think this would be great, but as a plugin. most people probably wouldn’t need it, so we don’t want it too bloated, however for those that would use freesound samples it would be very useful.
I was thinking this could be added to the import dialog. There are currently 2 tabs: files and tags. A freesound tab could be added.
I’m not sure how that would be done with a plugin…
i think your way is better. i haven’t looked at the import dialog in a while
