99Sounds has released World Sounds, a free sound library featuring a collection of field recordings and nature sound effects created by Marcel Gnauk of Free To Use Sounds.
World Sounds contains close to 4GB of royalty-free field recordings and sound effects. The sounds were recorded by Marcel Gnauk, the author of the fantastic Free To Use Sounds project. All content is provided in 24-bit WAV format (48 kHz stereo), and it’s completely royalty-free.
The library contains 76 recordings in total. All included files feature descriptive filenames, and they’re sorted into folders by category to make it easier for the user to browse the recordings. There are fifteen different categories, covering airplane sounds, silent rooms, electromagnetic noises, rain and thunder recordings, ocean waves, waterfalls, crowded markets, people playing sports, jungle ambiance, and more. World Sounds is an excellent source of foley effects and field recordings for your next video or audio project.

There are over 400 GB of sounds to download at the moment, with new sound libraries added almost every week. Marcel travels the world with his girlfriend and records interesting urban and nature sounds in various locations across the globe.
