From amateurs armed with the tools to make their own studio-quality movies to business promotional clips to smartphone users recording video by the truckloads for Facebook and YouTube, video editing might as well be a new high school elective course. Virtually everyone is doing it.
However, all these new filmmakers are now running into some of the same problems the professionals often face. What if you shot your video in a subway station…but it didn’t sound like a subway station? What if a door slam just didn’t come through in your recording? Or what if you decide to insert a sound effect like a cartoon whoosh or a steam engine or a squeak toy?
Trying to replicate just the sound you want is likely a lot harder than you might think. And if you steal someone else’s sounds without permission, you could be on the receiving end of a lawsuit. With a one-year subscription to Soundsnap Stock Audio and Sounds ($149.99, 25 percent off), you’ll have access to a world class, fully stocked sound library, chock full of royalty-free audio you can use in any project.
Soundsnap instantly puts you in the big leagues…because Soundsnap itself is big leagues. Their library has been used and trusted by giant companies like Disney, HBO, CBS and Pixar and crafted by sound designers and recordists on movies like “Black Swan,” “Baby Driver,” “The Dark Knight” and more.
A quick spin through the Soundsnap archive instantly proves what a massive treasure trove they’ve accumulated. Twice as big as most other audio platforms, Soundsnap currently houses over 280,000 different sounds, all categorized into easy-to-find areas. If you want some sound of wind, there are literally almost 1,400 different varieties of professional wind recordings to choose from.
With more clips added weekly, the trick won’t be finding the sound you want — the trick will be determining which one. There are also over 40,000 different musical stingers, beats and loops to help give your video just the flavor you’re looking for.
Everything on Soundsnap is entirely royalty-free with your subscription and can be downloaded and used as often as you like in both personal and commercial projects with no extra fees ever.
A year of Soundsnap Stock Audio and Sounds access is usually $199, but with this offer, you can save $50 off that price and get everything for just $149.
