Frequently asked questions

Can I contribute my sound effects or music to

Yes, we always need contributors and by becoming one, you are joining a beautiful and very powerful community. We have thousands of people use our site and sounds every day. If you’re a sound designer or library, offering a selection of your sounds along with your brand identity, link to your website and more will put you directly in front of this audience, showing them your skills and products. If someone can download and use your sound in their project and realise how amazing your work is, they’ll likely buy from your store.

Contributing is easy, simply:

  1. Create or log into your account
  2. Click the ‘Upload Sounds’ link in the top menu
  3. Follow instructions and upload your files

Once we’ve received them (we will get an email alert once you’ve uploaded) we will review them and add them to the library.

Is there a minimum quality requirement for contributing sounds and music?

Yes, to keep the standards that our members expect, we only accept sound effects or music files at a minimum or 44.1kHz and 16bit WAV files. We are also strict on quality, so we ask the following:

  • Sounds and music must be recorded on a good quality recorder. iPhone or mobile recordings are not what we are looking for.
  • Edit your sounds well. We look for basic editing techniques such as ‘toping-and-tailing’, small fade ins and outs at the beginning and end of each audio file to stop clicks if required, normalising audio files where appropriate, adding meta data to each sound if possible.
  • We hate hiss and so do our members. If you’ve recorded a sound and it includes hiss, or excessive noise floor, it will likely be rejected.

We are in the process of adding a front-end contribution system where members can upload sounds directly to the library. Watch this pace for more information.
