A guide to our collection of sound effects
Whether you’re making a game, an app, a video or a podcast, sometimes you just don’t just need that perfect sound effect, but you also need it to be ready made for you—without having to dive deep into sound editing and all that jazz.
If that’s, like, you right now—you’re in luck! The AudioJungle sound effect library includes over 130,000 sound effects and counting, so you’re sure to find what you need. And there’s a simple licensing system, so you can be confident using the effect in your project without worrying about whether you have the correct rights and permissions.
Here’s a quick guide to some of the most popular categories and what you can find.
When you’re designing any kind of app or web interface, sound effects can be a great way to give feedback to your users and help them find their way around.
In the interface sounds category, you’ll find all kinds of notification sounds, button sounds, bells, clicks, dings and more. Also be sure to check the buttons & menus category for more than 3,000 different effects. Remember—you can use the search function within each category to narrow down the results and find exactly what you need.
You’ve won! You’ve reached a new level. You’ve jumped in the air. You’ve lost. Games need sound effects to cover all of these situations—and a lot more besides. So it’s not surprising that you’ll find more than 30,000 effects in our game sounds category. Whether you want to cast a spell, make a bullet whistle through glass or hear the enraged roar of a dragon, you’ll find the sound you need here.
Cartoons are full of sound effects. Whether it’s a squeaking balloon or a howling ghost, you’ll need plenty of effects to punctuate the action, make it seem more real, and in some cases draw a laugh. And speaking of laughter, yes—you can find hundreds of different kinds of cartoon laughter in our collection too. Head over to the cartoon sounds category and see for yourself.
Transitions and movement
As humans, we are hard-wired to respond to sounds of movement and change. So a boom, whoosh or crash create instant drama in things like trailers for action movies, with all those deafening impact sounds to ratchet up the tension. If that’s what you’re looking for, then the collection of transitions and movement sounds is what you need.
Sometimes you need more than one sound to create the effect you need, and if that’s the case—we’ve got you covered! Our sound packs are bundles of different effects related to the same theme, all for a single low price.
Finally, if you’re not sure what you want and are just looking for some inspiration, the popular items page is a great place to start. Our list of the top-selling effects is updated on a weekly basis.
