Free Sounds

1. The best place for free sounds is…
right in front of your microphone!

I believe every sound editor, sound designer and musician should own a field recording setup…
When I was a kid, the only way to access a field recorder was to borrow a Nagra and microphone.
I have recordings I captured on a borrowed Nagra 4.2 that are still useful to me now, 30 years later!
I have recordings I captured on my first portable DAT machine that are still useful to me now, 25 years later!
I have recordings I captured on my first HD recorder that are still useful to me now, 20 years later!
The sooner you start recording your own sounds, the better!
