Digital sound effects can help computer users in various ways. For example if you are creating a presentation, a slide show, or editing a scene in a movie, you could add a digital sound to fully achieve the desired effect. If you are in need of such sound effects, pay a visit to “The Freesound Project”.
The Freesound Project is a web service that, as its name suggests, offers free sounds. You will find thousands of sounds on the website; all of them are offered under the “Creative Commons Sampling Plus 1.0 License”.
This means that the sounds can be used for free in non-commercial projects. All you have to do to obtain a sound is click on its link; this will open something like in the image above; then right-click on the “Download” button and select “Save as.”
You can play the sound online before downloading, rate it, and leave a comment. The site also has forums on which you can interact after creating an account.
