Getting the Most out of SFX

Room Tone

Like any sound effect, when left alone they can often sound a little rough. So, it’s best to throw in music underneath, or with the room tone to lower the decibels and have the clips fill the silent void playing underneath your footage. The pack is filled with tracks that can play the part of background noise, whether it’s washing dishes, vacuuming the floor, or just the sound of your dog barking in the distance. Never be afraid to throw in as many sounds as you can to fill the spaces.

Additional Free Packs and DIY Tips

Or, if you’re interested in how to record sound effects from your home instead, our own Anthony Najera recently created a tutorial for creating DIY SFX. Discover what you need, how to approach the sounds, and how to edit them once you’ve recorded everything.

Fun tip: You really only need your phone to grab quality audio for the sound effects you might have missed on the day of the shoot.

Shutterstock Sound Effects Library

These are just a handful of free sound effects we’re offering. For thousands more, you can visit the Shutterstock Sound Effects library. This is the first Metaverse-ready SFX library, as the tracks are presented in stereo, 5.1, and ambisonic formats. These immersive tracks can be used in a variety of projects from VR, game streaming, game development, immersive films, ads, documentaries, and more.
