Anyone know of a very good free sound effect website? I have been searching for a few animal sounds like a rat sounds etc.. And I have had no luck finding any good free sound effect websites that can give me what I want. Many of them charge around $5 for a 5 second sound, but I am definitely not going to pay that, so any help would be much appreciated to help me find a good free sound effect website.

It's not the best, but I've gone to it a couple of times. I have a huge collection, if you're ever stuck looking for a sound feel free to ask me and I might have it...no charge.

This is the best website I have found for sound effects.

It is called sweetsoundeffects (http://sweetsoundeffects.com/) and it is run by the finalcutking (http://finalcutking.com/) who is a pretty darn legit youtuber.

hope that helps you out. All the sounds are free on this site.

On a related note -- the site Musopen (http://www.musopen.org/) offers public domain recordings of classical music. What's usually the case these days is that all the good recordings of classical music are copyrighted by the orchestras who performed them, so even if the sheet music is free for anyone, the recordings aren't. This site goes against that, which is pretty awesome.

Awesome job guys! Keep that list building.

May be interesting to list all these links as a blog on the site. That way if people are looking for sounds they can just come here to find the good websites.

Nick. AudioMicro has the best rat sounds, but they're not free. However, they are cheap:

What do you think about the idea of having some specific section of the site devoted to filmmaker resources -- like links to other sites that people recommend for high-quality free stuff such as sound effects, music, royalty-free stock photos and videos -- basically stuff we filmmakers are looking for all the time. Maybe this could have its own button on the navigation bar next to Articles or Tutorials, instead of having them somewhat hidden away in a forum post.

Having all that stuff in one spot, which would be ever-growing as members suggest new places, could be an invaluable tool. Might even attract outside traffic to the site.

I like that idea, how would you picture it here on the site?

It could be fairly simple, perhaps just a single page divided into different categories of media. For gathering suggestions, there could either be a forum topic for it or a comment field below the list. But I'm no designer :P

Ok, I have added this to the "To Do" list. Look for this soon.

If anyone has any other recommendations then please start a new thread :)

Soundsnap is great. really good sounds but their subscription model kinda puts me off.
I recently tried out mega sound effects. Oh they're sounds are fantastic. I could not get anything better for such low prices. I looked all over but megasfx is really worth the buy.

Look into it bro, you might find something you like.
