Sound design sound effects
Our free sound design sound effects are very popular with our users and due to the generic nature of some of these sounds, we see them used in everything from movies (horrors, science fiction films, trailers etc) through to games and even in electronic systems. Our ‘Hits and Noises’ sub-category includes almost any and every sound design element from heavily effected organic sounds through to synthesized tones. The Drones and Soundscapes categories contain longer ambient sound design elements covering a range of styles and emotions, while the sweeps and transitions are popular as production elements used for TV, film, games and more. So if you’re a filmmaker, game or app developer or working on an interactive multimedia project etc, you’ll find these sound effects useful.
