36 Top Sound Effects Web Sites
For When You Need A THWACK! Or ...
By Dave Courvoisier
Voice Actor & TV News Anchor
The other day I had need of a "busy street scene crowd background sound," and went searching.
And it occurred to me that a list of the web sites I found may be helpful for those needing a )))THWACK((( or a HONK or the sound of a mosquito in your ear.
Below, then, an incomplete but irreplaceable list of some of the top royalty-free sound effects sites out there. I'm not sayin' they're free - although some are - but they do seem to get a lot of traffic.
This is a companion to another list I compiled, 50+ Sources For Royalty-Free Music.
Please COMMENT below and/or send me the names and a link to YOUR favorite sound-effects site, which I may have missed, and I'll add it to the list.
