Links to free sounds.
- Soundsnap – Royalty Free Sounds (loops, music, sound effects). You can submit, rate, and make comment on sounds, plus download and use them in your Flash project, radio or TV commercials or modify them for something else. The only thing you can’t do with these sounds is sell them. The previews are well done, because if you click on a preview it knows to stop the one thats playing.
- freesound – A database of Creative Commons licensed sounds created and uploaded by users. The licensing varies on each loop, but there are some great ones here.
- Flash Kit – Flash Kit has offered a section for users to submit and download loops and sound effects for a long time. Many author’s homepage links are dead, so I’m not sure how that affects the license on the linkware sounds.
- Internet Archive’s Open Source Collection – A large collection of sounds, music and readings.
Links to companies that offer sounds that cost money to download and use.
