Free samples for sound design and experiments

Two very large and interesting archives of free samples that can be used for sound design and experimentation in apps like SoundScaper, FieldScaper, BeatCutter and even SynthScaper.

>>> FreeSound - A Collection of CC-Licensed Sound Effects

Freesound aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, and all sorts of bleeps, ... released under Creative Commons licenses that allow their reuse. You need to register to download these samples.

>>> BBC Sound Effects

Explore a weird and wonderful collection of noises from the broadcasting behemoth. There can be few organizations that have used more sound effects than the BBC, but did you know that that the good old British Broadcasting Corporation has made more than 33,000 of its FX available for free download?

BeatCutter - Rhythm slicing recombining

BeatCutter is an experimental multi-channel app for slicing and recombining sound based on rhythm. In the center of the app is a matrix of sample cells with smoothly reconfigurable recording, playback and control busses. This app is best for those who would like to experiment with long sound files or live instruments, creating chaotic constructions and patterns from sliced rhythm-driven samples.
