You may be wondering if there’s a catch within the license terms, preventing you from using these samples in commercial recordings, but there’s no need to worry. The sounds are provided royalty-free and completely free of charge, with very clear licensing terms available on the download page linked below. No attribution is required and you can use the provided files in as menu projects as you like.
The included sounds were handpicked from various commercial SFX libraries which are available in the Sonniss store. The contents are provided in full quality (as in the corresponding commercial release) and with detailed descriptions to help you find the desired type of effect. As for the included sound effects, they cover a variety of SFX types ranging from sci-fi swooshes and noises to field recordings, human noises, weapon sounds, drones, impacts, and so on.
Since downloading such a huge sound pack can be troublesome for users with slower connections, Sonniss have provided three direct download mirrors and an official torrent. Different downloads may perform differently depending on your ISP and location, but chances are that the torrent will be the fastest download option.
GDC2018 Audio Bundle is available for free download via Sonniss (31.48 GB download size, ZIP archive, contains 985 sound effects in 24-bit WAV format).
