This blog post is a very special one! You will listen to amazing & authentic sounds from New York City! Libby is a high end wedding videographer shooting weddings all across the world and one event took place in New York City and she was able to record different soundscapes on different ten different locations! Keep in mind similar sound libraries on A Sound Effect or Sonnis from New York cost at least $50! Here on Free To Use Sounds you only pay $5!!

Her schedule was packed with shooting but she could spare some hours roaming around New York with the Zoom H6 and got some amazing sound effects

That is what I love about the Zoom H6. Quick and handy without tons of knobs, cables or buttons you have to switch. Turn on the recorder, check your levels and record!

I only need one sound! Do I need to purchase all the sounds?

No, On Bandcamp you can just buy the track you like without buying the complete library! This is something you are not getting on other sound library platform and an awesome feature!

What is a single-user license?

That means all our sound effects & sound libraries are granted for one person only! If you know that multiple users in our office are going to work with the sounds then you need a multi-user license!

How do I get a multi-user license?

That is super simple. You buy the library x times for the number of people that are going to work with the sound library or sound effect. On Bandcamp you can choose the price. If you now 5 people are going to work with the sounds and the library cost $3 then you pay $15!
