Sound effects for Ardour

Hi folks~

Are there any sound effects for layering into an Ardour recording? Things like dogs barking or train whistles, fog horns, water etc. The last time I ever did anything like that, the sounds were on a vinyl LP!!

Thank you!

Yes there are, just like there are for anything, but does Ardour have anything to do with it? Not so much.

I would suggest looking at these sites for instance…

Or you can buy complete collections from Sound Ideas or The Hollywood Edge if you desire.

As always read license statements carefully when dealing with this.


@kvk: if you’re on OS X, there are lots of SFX samples in the garageband audio file folders that we put a shortcut to in the import dialog.
