BBC Library adds over 16,000 free sound effects

  • Posted 3 weeks Ago

The BBC has compiled over 16,000 sound effects used since the corporation's radio output in the 1920s and made them available for free via the BBC Library. The collection of clips includes everything from the classic door creak through to a screeching parrot and the (very niche) 16-foot speedboat with a 40hp outboard pulling up to stop.

There is a slight catch though, for any budding sound technicians out there who are chomping at the bit – the sound effects can only be used for "personal, educational, or research purposes" due to the RemArc license.

You can search and browse the full range of sounds here.
