Free Sound Effects - Jake - Aug 21, 2004 09:08 AM

Does anyone have a big folder of free sound effects? I remember on my old G4 I had most all of the iDevGames free sounds, but I lost them. Carlos, do you still have those resources or were they lost?

If anyone can share with me their big collection of free sounds or has a link to a bunch of them I would appreciate it, I am at the stage where I need to add sounds to Hydrothermal (which is almost done now).

We'll have to sort through all of that.

I just yesterday updated my new site with royalty free media links - I don't tolerate crap so it's a short list that leads only to the good stuff. (Link)

OT: Hey, cool site Frank! Hadn't seen that before, pretty new? Oh, there it's says 18 of augustÖ

Thanks for the links, I can never find a big .zip file of sounds which is what I was actually looking for, but those will do just fine.

I would recommend grabbing and archiving anything you might find useful - these things seems to come and go. Apple used to have about twice as many (and more useful) samples in AIFF format on the iMovie page, then they suddenly disappeared and put up those mp3's. Luckily I snagged all the AIFF's before that happened Wink

There are thousands of free sounds here:

Free Sounds

In fact, I recorded or made almost all of them for use in all the games I've created.

Wish I knew about this before but I like Soundsnap. Using some files from here in my new project:

If I like a sound then I'll go over it with Sound Studio 3. Smile

Free Sound Effects - Eilam Hoffman - Jan 23, 2008 05:03 PM is a great site for royalty free samples.

Hmm, looks like is now charging for membership. Tis a bait and switch. Have to pay for bandwidth I suppose. Annoyed

Free Sound Effects - SethWillits - Dec 14, 2008 05:29 PM

FAQ says it's so they can pay contributors money.

The home page is misleading. It's $30 for *one* month, not $30 *per* month. An annual membership is $150. Not bad, but not spectacular either when it used to be free. Smile

Beachware posted their sounds for free:

I purchased the Zillion Sounds CD a couple years ago. Problem is they are 8 bit sounds. There is this annoying noise hiss in the background which makes them unusable. Sad So, I ended up going to soundsnap when it was free ...

with the time it takes to read all the sites ToS and EULA and blahblah and then find what you are looking for and see if the site really owns/created it and if you are free to use it. Or if you have to give them a link, or pay them a fee, or....

wouldn't it be easier to just make your own sounds? Grin

edit: if you don't know here is a nice tool to help make sound effects

and of course Audacity. Those two apps. and a usb mic and my macbook is how I plan on making my 40 or sound effects next week or so for my game i'm finally finishing soon (I hope).
