looking for good sound effects
on Jun 1, 2011 at 2:47:30 am

I am producing a series of animated videos, with a lot of 3D text effects. I am having a hard time finding good sound effects. Most are so over the top dramatic, I am looking for more subtle, interesting stuff. They all seemed to be weighted toward sci fi or radio ads for the drag races, BE THERE! Anyone know of a good resource for quality sfx. I don't care about free or cheap, I want good.

thanks,
Scott

Hollywood Edge, Sound Dogs- etc. Free usually do suck so be prepared to spend a few cents.

I agree about Hollywood Edge, also I've used the BBC stuff for background atmos. Some of the music libraries have sound effects as well (e.g., http://www.audionetwork.com/sound-effects/ )

Hello Scott and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

In addition to the good suggestions here by Noah and Andrew, why not sound design 'em yourself of find someone local to do that for you.

BTW: yogurt on plasterboard sounds a lot like what paint should sound like when "splatted" on canvass on the floor.

Regards,

Yep, homemade sound effects are fun and cool to do. Another place you might find something is http://www.freesound.org/. There's a TON of user-submitted free sound samples and effects that cover just about everything you could think of.
