SoundJax.com 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 SoundJax.com 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.
