Free SFX samples

Recommended Posts

This probably hasn't been posted for a while but here are some free(ish) sources for SFX samples

https://www.adobe.com/uk/products/audition/free-sound-effects.html  (actually looks like that link is dead...but fear not....)

https://offers.adobe.com/en/na/audition/offers/audition_dlc/AdobeAuditionDLCSFX.html - described as "royalty-free audio sound effects."

think there is about 15 gig

plus the BBC sfx library (not strictly speaking free but ok for personal use)

You can't use the Adobe sound files as part of a trademark (audio mark) and expect them to be exclusive.  The sentence as read only entangles the "trademark rights" the "content file or derivative works thereof" means exactly that.  You can't take these sounds, fiddle them and then claim a trademark right on them (either as shipped or a derivative).  Adobe has no issue with normal sound file usage, these sound effects have been distributed with Audition for a very long time (and under a bunch of different licenses).  I'm pretty sure Adobe couldn't sue any one for using them if they wanted to. 

Trademark rights are a totally different kind of thing than a copyright (just like patents aren't trademarks, and design patents aren't normal patents, but people blur them all together sometimes).  And no I'm not a lawyer, but I have used the Adobe files in projects and will continue to do so.  Though technically I may have paid for them a few times since I've bought Adobe products that included them on discs before the creative cloud and do have an active creative cloud sub.  But I don't think that gives me any extra rights.
