our sound story

free to use sounds is not your average sound library! 

Thousands of unique sound recordings from all around the world, captured by us…Marcel and Libby!


Founded in 2016 in Siem Reap, Cambodia with an idea and a Zoom H1 recorder in hand, we set out to archive our very first sound recording. We weren’t sure what we would do with the audio track of “Cambodian Women Sifting Gravel at a Construction Site” but we figured someone would appreciate it.

Nearly two years, 20 countries, and thousands of recordings later, we’re still as excited capturing soundscapes as that first expedition in Cambodia!


We collaborate with professional sound libraries like Soundly, Soundsnap, Sound Ideas, A Sound Effect, and Zapsplat and companies like Zoom, LOM Label, and Limpet Mics.

Used by Everyone!

Our royalty-free recordings & sound effects are used by novice sound artists to professional sound designers working in the film, music, and video game industry.


The Sound Libraries

Just as our name implies our sounds are free for you to use however you like (as long as you don’t break any laws!) Anyone can download sounds through our website or purchase our Complete Library, Pro Edit Library, VR Ambisonic Library or the new All In One Sound Library!
