What is Sound Effects Search?
There are dozens of excellent independent sound bundle libraries appearing on the Internet every month. These collections often appear on isolated websites. So, while these exceptional “indie sound libraries” are spreading across the Web, it’s hard to find them.
Sound Effects Search was created to solve that problem. It has two goals:
- To allow independent sound effect library owners to share their sound bundles.
- To help others find these sound libraries.
Sound Effects Search was designed by Paul Virostek, owner of the blog Creative Field Recording and the sound shop Airborne Sound, to help others list and find exceptional sound collections. Why?
We believe that the entire craft of pro audio improves when better sound surrounds us.
For Sound Pros: Find Independent Sound Effects Libraries
Bored of corporate sound libraries? Struggling to find a decent clip amongst the torrent of sounds on à la cart websites?
Sound Effects Search was crafted to help sound pros find cool independent sound libraries with no muss or fuss. There are no flashy graphics or promotional squawking. Sound Effects Search is just a simple website that helps you find what you need and return to work.
- Find sound effects libraries by category, keyword, or free collections.
- Find sound library Web shops here.
For Creators: List Your Sound Effects Library
Use Sound Effects Search to list each of your sound effect libraries. This helps your creations get exposure to fans who are eagerly searching for them. It helps both fans and search engines find your website.
Simply add your library info to the submission page. Before long, your library will appear on the site amongst the others. It will include your library stats and a link back to your own website.
Note: Sound Effects Search was designed to be a public service to the field recording and sound design communities. It is a sound library listing service for and by sound creators.
It will always be free to list your sound library with us. This will never become a commercial website, nor will we ever distribute sound bundles ourselves – it is meant as a sound list to find good audio and share it with others.
We Are Growing
This first version of Sound Effects Search was created to help others list and find sound libraries. We have big plans to improve the site further. Stay tuned.
