Getting Free Sounds Off the Internet

There are plenty of places to get free sounds on the Internet. Start with the following reliable sources. You usually want .wav (which are uncompressed and big), or .mp3 (which is compressed).

⚠️ Avoid any YouTube-to-MP3 converters as most are full of viruses and phishing scams waiting to own your computer.

“What about other sound formats?”

Even though .ogg is a great format and free of any patents it is generally not needed these days because the patents have expired on the .mp* formats.

The .aiff is good but it just does not have wide support.
