Search Sounds

Search Sounds is one of the coolest new sites we have came across in a long long time. SoundJax titles itself the “Sound Search Engine”, and that pretty much sums it up.

SoundJax has indexed 10’s of thousands of sound files all across the internet. It then renders a wavform (image of the sound file) and then lets you interact with the sound. Click on a part of a sound, make it jump around, all sorts of cool features have been built into that site.

The site is totally free really fun to play with. Just go over to and punch in a word. The word must be longer than 3 characters, but that’s the only requirement as far as we can tell.

The site gives you the name of the file, the location, option to download, option to visits site, number of channels (stereo or mono), play time (length of sound, bit rate, and file size.

The have also included a “Popular Searches” area part of the site that allows you to just point and click a sound search.

If you are needing sound effects for a media project then look no further than SoundBible. has thousands of free sound clips that you can use in your media projects, and best of all if you can’t find what you need you can just “request a sound effect”

We’ve been using the site for a few years now, and have nothing but good things to say about them. We requested a few sounds and within a few days or a week they had posted the request, and it was free. Kinda cool, and we just like most other people think free is awesome. If it’s free it’s for me, that’s my motto.

So the site has about 3 different sound license types, they have creative commons audio, public domain audio, and generic non licensed work. If you are new to music or sound license types they spell it all out for you so don’t worry if what we are saying makes no sense, at the moment.

According to Google their most popular pages are these:
Free Sound Clips
Fart Sounds
Gun Sounds
Funny Sounds
Free Sound Effects
Explosion Sounds

We’ve used them for everything from PowerPoints, to Web Pages, from YouTube Videos, to Flash Game Sound Effects.

If you are into amateur film deisgn and need sounds this is a good place as well. The audio downloads are n both mp3 or wav so they have you covered.

Looking at their news page they have helped out large organizations and people like; National Wild Turkey Federation, Tony Phillips, British Columbia Ministry of Finance, Our Dynamic Earth, and even Tux Paint (the free open source pant app for kids)

So check out their site, and bookmark it for a rainy day when you need some sounds.
