Free Sound Effects and Music

Digital Asset Published 2/19/15 Last updated on 3/2/20

I have mentioned this in a comment on another post but figured I'd put it up here in case anyone doesn't know how to unlock this amazing part of the Adobe suite.

Adobe Audition (and Adobe programs in general) is packaged with heaps (thousands) of royalty free sounds. You simply need to download them and unzip them and you can import them into Audition, Premiere, Flash, etc.

There are heaps and heaps of really well recorded and specific sound effects that you will never be lost for sound. My personal favourite is "Human Chew Banana".

This is the link.

If that link doesn't work here is the URL that you can copy into your browser:

  • Audition

    Audio recording, mixing, and restoration.

  • Creative Cloud

    Creative apps and services for everyone.

  • Premiere Pro

    Edit media in its native format and create productions for film, TV, and web.

  • After Effects

    Create motion graphics and visual effects for film, TV, video, and web.

  • Animate

    Design interactive vector animations for multiple platforms.

  • Premiere Elements

    Organize, edit, create, and share your videos.

1-2 Hours

Disk space - the entire collection (once unzipped) takes up just under 21GB

ok. That's not this then. You might be able to find something that could do that but you're unlikely to find a library of sounds. Stuff like this usually comes in banks of zipped folders. I'd say your best option is to record the sounds yourself with your phone.
