Train Sound Effects Recorded

We recorded some great sounds from a passing freight train today, here is the full audio as well as some chopped up sound clips of the train. The train honks several times, approaches, honks more, passes, and you can hear the metal scraping or grinding of the the wheels from the freight. This was a short freight train (this is perfect), and means you get the full approach, pass, and honk plus other sound effects in just under a minute. Have at it and enjoy, these sound effects are under creative commons attribution 3.0

Sharing Sounds with

Thanks for Sharing!

Thanks for Sharing!

We want to give a big thanks to those people who have shared sounds with We recently implemented a share your sounds feature, so that users could share their audio with other like minded individuals.

Big thanks to those of you willing to share. It’s also kind of fun to see your recording posted online, if you are into that sort of thing.

How to Share?
We attempted to make the process as straightforward and user friendly as computerly possible.

You can share either an mp3 or wav sound recording. MP3 is the most likely choice, but it doesn’t matter so long as it’s an .mp3 or .wav file.

If you are looking for something to record with you can always download audacity.

Most of the time we use a Zoom H4 handy recorder, the quality on this little mobile recorder is about as professional as it gets, and you can usually pick one up for around $200 if you shop around.

If you don’t want to shell out $200 you can always use the mic on your pc or cell phone. Most of our sound effects are used for school media projects, flash games, fun, or similar. Those applications don’t’ require the super detailed audio that a million dollar movie would.

So if you are interested in helping out SHARE YOUR SOUNDS

If you need help recording then read How to Record Sounds

Thanks again to all those people that are helping build our public sound collection. We sincerely appreciate the effort.
