Royalty free sound effects

Free sound effects

I have created these Royalty Free Sound Effects databases in 16-bit WAV format.

The files are classified according to theme and are grouped in folders. The names of the free samples gives clear indications regarding the recording context of each sound effect. For example, the file 'motorway inside car' is a sound effect recorded inside a car on the motorway.

Some samples recordings are short sounds lasting only a few seconds, and others are natural or artificial sound environments lasting anywhere from 30 seconds to 6 minutes.

You may use all of these royalty free sound effects free of charge in your personal or commercial projects.
Copyleft: this work is free, so you may copy it, distribute it and change it according to the terms of Licence Art Libre
