I'm looking for free audio files online that could be used for practicing EQ and other processing tools.

My Google-fu seems to be failing me. Ideally, I'm looking files that contain interview/voice rather than music, but anything will work. Also hoping to find files designed specifically for this purpose - so a file with a hiss or hum that needs attenuation or similar, rather than generically "noisy" files.

I have a account so have found some there, but am looking for other files that might work.

Any suggestions?

What's the end result you're trying to get to?

"Stem tracks" is the most common term I've seen used where you can get isolated tracks of a song, like just the vocal, or just the lead guitar part, or just the drum parts.

So that might be a useful search term. I think this stuff tends to pop up on YouTube pretty regularly, and I think we've had some posts on MetaFilter about it.
