We have sort of covered online audio usage already, but there is one area that we haven’t touched upon yet – sound effects. Like fonts, there are a bunch of places you can get free sound effects for immediate download. Again, it’s just a case of making sure you have the rights situation cleared. VideoBlocks have sound effects in their library, so this makes a subscription to them even more of a no-brainer. Detonation Films have a nice little selection, all free. Like stock footage, it’s important to generate a sound effects library, so that when it comes to the sound mix on that all-important project you have a nice array at your disposal – but if you don’t, with the web at your disposal, you’re never far from that perfect sound file.
