In the early days of computers, we used to customize things, including event sounds. Most of us think we’re too busy to do that now (or maybe it just got old.) Today some of the places where you can find interesting sounds to download are now pop-up, spyware and adware-installer havens. Then, of course, one wonders whether the sound they downloaded is actually – er – legal to use. Enter The Freesound Project. "The Freesound Project aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, … released under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus License," according to the site. So here’s a place to legally obtain sounds and music for your web site, your podcast, your PowerPoint presentations and many other uses.
