A brief update: I recently added about a dozen new sound clip Web shops to the Community Sound FX Libraries page. It’s a bit more presentable, too.
I revisited the sites while updating the list. It’s a good way to discover what’s out there. As I did so, I noticed that there’s a few perhaps less-well-known sites that have some incredible libraries. There are some real gems buried in there. In particular, there’s a wide selection of guns and cars. There are also new nature recordists with some truly evocative recordings.
It’s also interesting to note that the count is now at 66 independent sound library stores. That’s pretty incredible. Two years ago half of these didn’t exist.
I believe the list is pretty much up to date. Thanks to everyone who has submitted a website. If I have missed your independent Web shop, please contact me via the sound fx library submission page.
