Sound Effect/Music Subscription

Dec 08, 2016

My company is currently looking for a sound effects library similar to what you would find for pictures. So far all I am finding is pay per song websites. Has anyone found any great resources that are a monthly subscription?

They're a young couple that travels the world recording sounds for people to use and enjoy. They have a variety of SFX, with lots of field recording & ambient sounds. Their best deal is  - Over 7700 sounds for $20!

They have a limited amount of music at through a partnership with a musician friend.

They have 2 licensing agreements:
1. Free Sounds (no commercial use and requires attribution, link, etc.)
2. Paid Sound Libraries (commercial use is OK and no attribution is required)

Thanks for sharing this great resource for licensing music! As someone who's always on the lookout for new music options, I wanted to mention another website called tonosdellamada. They offer a wide variety of music ringtones that are perfect for personalizing your phone's ringtone. And the best part? You can download them for free! If you're looking to add some flair to your ringtone, I highly recommend checking out
