Link: Free Music Archive – Free music that you can download and use in your projects. Some tracks require attribution in your credits, so make sure you double check the license information when you download.

Link: BBC Sound Effects Archive Resource • Research & Education Space. The BBC’s Sound Effects Archive of more than 16,000 free sound effects gives you access to a huge collection of sounds for different objects, locations, and actions. They’re all bound by a RemArc license that prohibits using these files in commercial work. The archive takes up 641 webpages but is completely searchable by keyword. You can also preview any files on the site that you want to listen to before downloading them as WAVs.
