Over 16,000 sound effects made available for free from BBC library

(24 April 2018) The BBC has made its sound effects archive available to the public for free for the first time.

The archive incorporates effects used by the corporation’s radio output since the 1920s – that tallies up to a staggering 16,000 sound effects.

However there is one important reservation on its usage: as per the RemArc licence, the sound effects can only be used for “personal, educational, or research purposes”.

The Independent has the story.
