Not that long ago, I posted a blog listing scores of Royalty-Free Music sites.  The response was hearty.

The other day, I had need of a “busy street scene crowd background sound”, and went searching.


And it occurred to me a similar list of sites may be helpful for those needing a )))THWACK(((   or a  —– HONK —-  of the sound of a Mosquito in your ear.

Below, then, an incomplete but irreplaceable list of some of the top royalty-free sound effects sites out there.  I’m not sayin’ they’re free (although some are) …but they do seem to get a lot of traffic.

Please…send me the names and a link of YOUR favorite sound-effects site that I missed, and I’ll add it to the list.   ——CourVO
