7+ Free Sound Effects for Twitch, YouTube & More

Looking for free Sound effects for your stream on Twitch, or your YouTube content? I started to make some for fun and figured that I should share them with the community. Also, Streamers are apparently being banned for sound effects in games, so having a set of effects you can use safely is a plus.

Also, these sounds are 100% okay to use for any other project, such as a video game you are making, or some other creative content, provided you respect the rules of the attached license.

How I Made These Sound Effects

If you are curious about how I made these files, I used Reaper, a few VST plugins, and recorded various sounds. Sound design isn’t something I’m super skilled at, but it is fun to play with. It is also a lot less complicated than many people think. After all, many of the above sound effects were derived from the vibration sounds given off by my window unit AC that I recorded.

Then, I simply slapped on some vst plugins to the audio channel and fiddled with it until I got what you see here. Obviously, experimenting with these plugins isn’t quite the same as having a specific sound end goal in mind that you achieve, which is why I consider myself to be a novice. With that said, even with my limited experience in sound design, I managed to come up with a few different effects that sounded good enough to release to you guys.

Other Sources of Sound Effects:

Here are a few free sound effects that are commonly used by game developers. I learned about these resources when I made A Moon of Cheese, which is a little game about a mouse with dreams of eating the moon made of cheese.

For these, you’ll need to ensure you abide by the licenses and limitations they mention, as each sound originates from a different designer. Also, remember that being a live streamer will count as Commercial use, so any assets that mention “free for personal use only” are a no-go.

Like the sounds here? Share this page with others! It will help the site grow and I’ll be able to make more of these for you guys.
