SoundBible: Free Sound Effects


SoundBible is a great resource for Drama teachers and students wanting to use free sounds in their performance-making projects in class. This website is also great for locating sounds needed for school shows.

SoundBible is an easy-to-navigate website hosting thousands of sound clips that can either be played on the site or downloaded.

Downloads fall into the following categories:

  • mp3
  • wav
  • zip

All sounds are completely free and also fall into three categories:

  • public domain (everyone owns them, so do what you want with it!)
  • royalty free (commercial use is fine, just don’t redistribute the sound for profit)
  • Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 (use is free, just attribute the owner of the sound)

SoundBible is a fabulous resource. I’ll be posting other free sound websites for use in Drama, soon. Stay tuned.
