It was originally started by a small group of sound people from all over the world. Our common belief is that sounds and samples should be free for everyone to use in their projects, commercial or not.
Our users are a diverse mix of sound designers, sound artists, web game developers, filmmakers and music producers. Hobbyists and home video makers are welcome too.
What Soundsnap is NOT:
- An alternative to Myspace, Limewire or BitTorrent.
- A place to upload your band's songs or your favourite mp3's. Soundsnap is only for sound effects and loops.
- A place you can upload or find sounds from commercial libraries. All sounds here are original- made or recorded by its users.
We encourage everyone to upload high quality sound FX and samples, helping us make every kind of sound available on Soundsnap.
