The two new packs below conta... »

We are rapidly approaching 30,000 free sound effects and with many new free sounds being added this week, as well as a new contributor or two (watch this space for details), it should be around a couple of weeks until we hit that number.

Today I’ve been working in the new studio on some sound design elements, which from time to time it’s nice to sit down and get stuck into. The great thing about working on such sounds is there is a huge amount of flexibility and as such, your creative juices can really get flowing. This week I’ll be starting work on some new Halloween sounds as myself and Justin (our new team mem... »

Glass in tin

New free glass and metal impact sound effects

Many times in the past I’ve been asked if we have any impact sounds that can be used to beef up car and other vehicle crashes. Often I used to recommend they used a selection of our glass smashes and metal impacts and layer them up to get the right sound. But recently, I’ve had a few more questions relating to the same subject, so thought it might be a good idea to create some sounds just for this... »

Scratches on rusty metal

Huge metal scrapes, marker pens writing, drawing and more

This week has started with a real bang, well more of a scrape. After a weekend of illness, today I had big plans to record some huge metal impacts among other sounds using some metal props I collected last week.

I also went on a trip to my favourite dollar store to make some purchases for Foley recordin... »
