There are many Websites that offer sound files for use copyright-free. As part of your permission to use the resources the site may require you to credit the author or Website.

  • Make sure you read the terms of use.
  • Always cite and credit the source of any resource you use.

The file format on the website may appear to be a QuickTime file. If you click on the far right down triangle for your saving options, you can choose Save as SOURCE rather than saving as a QuickTime movie file. Source means the sound saves as an original sound in WAV or AIFF file format.

If you download a file in a format that you cannot use with your video-editing software, use QuickTime Pro to convert the file to a usable format.

Some Websites with copyright-free sound files are:
FindSounds
Sound Dogs.com
Partners in Rhyme
