    Question Site For Sounds?

    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone knew a good, large sound effects site? Every now and then I find that I need a good sound to indicate an action in my apps, and it'd always be useful for making games.

    Admittedly FX CDs are worth a pretty penny to the studios that produce them, but the problem is that I'm always looking for one particular sound that I've heard somewhere, but they never have it!

    Can you be more specific? Such as like which type of format? What quality, 8 bit or 16 bit? And when you say FX do you mean like, glass breaking or footsteps?

    I would suggest going here
    It allows you to choose different sound formats, and qualities, it should be what your looking for.

    Sonomic has hundreds of sound effects. One problem I've noticed is that some of them have some type of distortion or sound problems - however, not all of them suffer from this.

    It seems as though Sonomic has used a low quality compression which might cause the warbling and 'computerized' glitching sounds within some of the samples. Sort of like a very low quality mp3.
