Sound Wave now with 12,000+ free sound effects

We’ve just uploaded our 12,000 free sound effect which is a bit of a landmark here at It’s pretty much doubled our library since launch back in 2015 and we’ve been picking up the pace ever since. the latest batch of sounds consists of: cartoon squelches, holdalls, parcels, tins and much more. is a labour of love for us. As you’ll be aware if you’ve been following our blog posts, we work full-time on bringing you free sound effects and while we make some money fro donations, most of what we earn is ploughed straight back into growing the library, updating the website and promoting our amazing range of free sound effects.

Next on the cards for us here is to hit our next target of 15,000 sound effects before hopefully reaching our end-of-year goal of 22,000 sound effects.
