Few days ago, one of our readers has found an interesting site with huge collections of different sounds. I found it really useful and we could use them in our websites and web applications. Sometimes, adding little but not too much sounds in our sites can enhance the user experience. And they can even give your site more life.
The Freesound Project aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, … released under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus License. The Freesound Project provides new and interesting ways of accessing these samples, allowing users to
- Browse the sounds in new ways using keywords, a “sounds-like” type of browsing and more
- Upload and download sounds to and from the database, under the same creative commons license
- You can even interact with fellow sound-artists
