Where do you get your sound effects from?

Jan 20, 2012

Hey all,

I've done a search of the forums and found a few pages with ideas but I wanted to put it out there again in case someone had something new. I'm looking for a place to get sound effects not music. E.g. sounds from a kitchen, or emergency sounds or office noises. I've found stuff on the free sound project before. What I want is real recorded sounds not those computer designed sounds.

Any ideas?

My "go to" site is Digital Juice. I was a videographer before I moved into instructional design and although DJ is designed for that, it has all the sound effects, background music, photos, stock video, and more you could need. It's not free, but well worth the subscription price: https://www.digitaljuice.com/ Plus, the commercial use license is already included.

Another paid site I like is Motion Array. Once again, they are heavy on the video editing side, but have a lot of useful stuff for ID as well. https://motionarray.com/ 

Thanks for all the others that have been listed. I can't wait to check them out.
