What is Soundsnap?

Soundsnap started out as a free, community driven sound library in July 2007. Over time, it has become the number one destination for pro sounds in the world.

In late 2008, we decided to go commercial in order to pay back our users. We made a brave "cleanup" of the library and added more premium content.

Today, you can find sound effects and loops from the best Hollywood sound designers and cutting edge music producers.
