So the free vocal samples for your tunes post turns out to be quite popular. It just happens that in the meantime I ran across some more of these nice free sample resources and so I thought that it would be neat to share them here online with you again.
This time it’s not about vocal samples alone. The last post wasn’t either really. You can find tons of other samples there as well, but it’s just one of those places I end up at when I am looking for an interesting vocal snippet. But anyway, here are some more wicked cool free sound archives:
- pdsounds.org or public domain sounds: their goal is to record everything and make it available for free. Sounds good doesn’t it? Volunteers sample whatever they want and post it to this site as public domain. The archive is still limited but it contains a nice selection of original samples already which is great. If you’re looking for some unique ambient noises and sounds, this seems to be a good place to start. If you feel like it, you can volunteer as well and upload your own samplings.
- SampleSwap: a large archive of already 5.5 GB of sounds available under a Creative Commons license. Contains about everything you want like breakbeats, loops, drum hits and kits, sounds effects, instruments, vocals etc.
The forum at the bottom isn’t where you’ll find the samples btw which is a bit confusing. If you can’t find your way to the samples right away look at the top of the page. There’s a search box there, and a link to browse the directory by category. That’s where you want to be to explorer the many subfolders of the archive.
