“Shame! Account cut off to protect hackers and criminals.”

My account was mysteriously cut off because I found a web-stalker. Can someone fix it this error? Where is the almighty FBI that let some unscrupulous business take over the media and injured professionals and students? The Freesound according to legal terms and jurisdiction is Free to all and not a private web-site. The quality of the sounds are great but they don't stand behind their promises of equality of service and respect.

If you've ever looked for a place to download sound effects you can use for ringtones, add to videos, or add to a performance, freesound.org is the place to go. The downloads are free after you register, because freesound acts as a sort of clearinghouse & provides the audio free through Creative Commons.

The sounds are licensed for any personal, non-commercial use.

Lots of people upload high quality sounds that they put effort into creating. The rating system is active- some of the best ones have thousands of downloads. This is an amazing resource for indie creators in film, skit and animation.

Love it! Freesound.org is a website with audio files of sounds and sound effects. All are free and downloadable.

Was asked to do some emergency help for a school play when one of the directors got pneumonia. I was easily able to get phone rings, train whistles, door slams, footsteps, creaky door sounds, door bells, howling wind, and thunder sounds.

Site lets you listen once or repeat them in a loop -- very handy!

I am semi-pc literate and was easily able to get these files, download them, get them into iTunes and burn them onto a CD.

Lots and lots and lots of sounds, pretty good search engine, easy to use and navigate!
