Free Sound Effects

Welcome to pdsounds!

Welcome to this collaborative project dedicated to record and collect sounds of everything! Everybody can submit and share their sounds here, in the public domain, in a grand effort to discover the richness of sound.
In order to categorise and cross-reference this big pot of noises, everybody is allowed to tag and thus categorise all sounds.

The hope

I hope that a huge library will build itself out of the volunteer contributions and a snuggly community will come together. I know we will be hearing and experiencing lots of wonderful stuff.

We need you

We need your input! Lots and lots of it. Please write to us, participate in the forum, tell us how the site worked for you, point to problems, give us your suggestions, improvements, your ideas...

But most of all have fun exploring sound,
