Free sounds & music

  • Everyone who seriously engaged in the development of games and focus on their realisation through the publishers, probably had the question - where can I find audio content for my games?

    In this topic I suggest to share links to resources on which you can download the necessary sounds and music for commercial projects.

    Sites with free sounds:

    http://www.freesound.org

    http://www.freesfx.co.uk/

    Site with free music:

    http://www.opsound.com

    If you know similar resources with free sounds or music that can be used for commercial purposes ? share in this topic. I think your links will be useful for many developers!

  • Opsound looks interesting.

    I've checked out freesound before... its a little ....off putting. They make everything have a cc 2 license which means any sound used must be given credit, even if its one the hundred or so lousy fart noises.

    There is some good stuff, but wading through all the nonsense gets old.

  • Music:

    http://www.jamendo.com

    Creative Commons

    http://musicfillingstation.de

    free for non-commercial, a comment line ("Music taken from MusicFillingStation.de") or link is needed. Commercial users have to ask for usage & conditions.

    Sounds:

    http://www.looperman.com

    more single instrument loops than full music loops or sound effects

    free for non-commercial, credits demanded for commercial

    http://www.soundsnap.com

    basically a pay service, but the free account allows 5 free downloads a month

    free to use for commercial and non-commercial

    http://www.flashkit.com/soundfx/

    license differs from sound to sound (freeware/linkware/shareware)

    Oops, I'm sorry, but I wrongly wrote the site url - it's http://www.freesound.org instead .com

    And there are all sounds are licensed under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus 1.0 License

    Look at this page http://www.freesound.org/whatIsFreesound.php and you could sure that all audio content there released under the CC Sampling Plus License.

    But their site (not sounds) is under the CC 2 license that you've mentioned above

    tulamide Thanks for sharing! It's very useful links!

    By the way I've found a new site with absolutely free sounds http://www.freesfx.co.uk/

    All content there are under CC license and may be used for any projects.

    Their license agreement http://www.freesfx.co.uk/info/eula/

  • Always amusing seeing people whine about licensing.

    Not really complaining, I just don't understand how someone could be so hard up for credit that they have to make a hundred variations of flatulence.

    That is somewhat bizarre, yes...

  • Spend much time searching every sound on such sites is not very convenient... Would like to find a site with sound packs (of course under CC license) that you can easy download and have your own bank of sounds on the hard disk.

  • Mp3 don't turn into OGG =(
