The Freesound Project - Audio Sounds for You Videos

Do you have a need for the sound of a Nightingale or the sound of a British telephone ring? The right sound can add a jump of creativity in your video. There is a place where you can satisfy your need for lapping waves with the sound of a Sea Gull in the background.

This place is The Freesound Project.

The Freesound Project is just that, sounds. No music or loops. Well, there isn't supposed to be anything else but some folks do no grok the concept. No matter. Let's say you need the sound of being in an Indian restaurant with glasses clinking and people talking.

The great thing about this is that you have information about the source audio such as time, file size and tags that relate to the contents of the audio. Not sure why an audio sound has to be geotagged but you learn something every day.

You do have to sign up to download the file. You also agree to give Attribution to the creator as part of the agreement under a Creative Commons Sampling Plus 1.0 license.

So if you are so inclined let your inner Spike Jones out and explore.
