Freesound is a collaborative database where users share sound effects, field recordings, musical samples and other audio material under Creative Commons licenses. Freesound offers both a website to interact with the database and a RESTful API which provides programmatic browsing and retrieving of sounds and other Freesound content.

Freesound currently contains more than 415k sounds that have been downloaded 139M times by 9M registered users. We present a JUCE client library which permits an easy integration of Freesound in JUCE projects. The presented library allows, among other things, to make use of the advanced text and audio-based Freesound search engine, to download and upload sounds, and the retrieval of a variety sound analysis information (i.e. audio features) from all Freesound content.
The code, together with examples and documentation is available at github.com/MTG/freesound-juce! Come check our poster to get to know more about this library!
