Are you looking for free sound sample downloads for use in your own music?
Well, you’re in luck, because here I have compiled a list of 10 websites where you can get these free sounds. All together, you have access to quite a lot of free sounds here.
I’ve actually used this one a few times myself. It’s definitely worth a look, as you can find some really interesting sounds. It’s good for ambient sounds or effects. I found a good wind sound on there a while back. To download sounds, you need to create a free account. To use the sounds, you need to give attribution.
There are nearly 1,500 sounds here. The licences on the sounds vary from Royalty Free, Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 and Public Domain. This basically means that some sounds you can use however you want, some you can’t use for commercial purposes, and some you need to give attribution. Because they vary from sound to sound, make sure you know what the licence is on the sound you decide to use.
A good number of sounds in categories such as animals, bells, cartoons/comical, doors/windows, emergency, fire/explosions, horror/sci-fi, human, nature, music, and more. All sounds are free to use however you want, as long as you give credit to freesfx.co.uk in some way.
Over 2,000 fun sound effects such as fireworks, guns, sports, and a lot more. They are completely free for non-commercial use.
A collection of sound effects, loops and music, that you are free to use for non-commercial purposes as long as you give attribution.
Not a big collection of sounds but they are completely free to use, even commercially, without needing to give any attribution. You’re just not allowed to redistribute them or sell them.
A modest collection of sounds, effects and music. As with the site above, you can use these however you want as long as you don’t resell or redistribute them.
Only 670 sounds but they are all public domain so you can do whatever you want with them.
Some very good quality sounds that can be used non-commercially or commercially, as long as you don’t resell or redistribute the individual sounds.
So there you go, 10 websites that you can use for free sounds. That should keep you busy for a while, and I certainly look forward to hearing what you produce using some of these free sound sample downloads.
