  1. For lack of a better forum to put this question in, can any share their experience with, or point me to, a good website/CD/source for cheap/free sound effects or royalty free, non-copyrighted, or public domain music??

    All the sites I've been to have been hit and miss or they've had small selections of files for downloading, or I spend gads of time listening to artists who don't fit my project.

    I wouldn't be opposed to spending $50 or $100 on a good sound library if I had confidence that it wouldn't suck.

    Any thoughts??

    Thanks in advance!!!!

  3. I ended up finding a couple of good sources for things I thought I'd share:

    1) Music and good info on ethically downloading music- http://www.goingware.com/tips/legal-downloads.html

    2) http://www.archive.org/movies/prelinger.php - not so much music but some interesting public domain video to use as B roll, bumpers, etc...

    I'll keep posting anything good I find.

    Hi harjo02,

    Sound effects:

    http://www.findsounds.com/
    http://www.audiolicense.net/
    http://www.stonewashed.net/sfx.html

    I literally typed in "sounds effects" in Google and checked out these 3, but there were others...
    There is some corner of a foreign field that is forever England: Telstra Stadium, Sydney, 22/11/2003.

    Carpe diem.

  5. Yeah, I've been to tons of those types of sites but they are all copyrighted, a pain in the a$$ to navigate, or are just links to other bodily function sounds. (I wish I had a dollar for every fart wav I've come across).

    I'm looking for simple, downloadable soundeffects without having to deal with webrings, popups, crap links, and half-baked 'collections' of sound effects.

    Copyright free and simple. I don't think it exists but if it does, this is the collection of people to help me out.

    I appreciate the effort and sentiment daamon but it isn't quite what I'm looking for.

    It was worth a try... I should say that I looked those up recently and found them good candidates, not just as a result of your post (i.e. there was no sarcasm meant when I mentioned just typing "sound effects" in Google).

    What sound effects are you after? Anything in particular?

    for sound effects, you might want to check your local computer store - I regularly see 1, 2 and 3 discs sets of sound effects, either in .wav format or as regular audio files, for $5-10.
