Pump Up Your YouTube Videos with Stock SFX


Making your YouTube video stand out from millions of others can be frustrating. Luckily, a simple way to take your videos to the next level is adding stock sfx. Audio clips can help you ding and highlight a feature of the newest iPhone, blow-up the competition in your Magic the Gathering weekly show, or calm your audience with a crackling fire while you tell bedtime stories.

Don’t get overwhelmed trying to find the best audio clips for your YouTube video. We’ve made finding the right stock SFX for your YouTube video easy by rounding up some of our favorite sound clips. Check out the clips below, then explore our guide for learning how to create a YouTube channel.

Rain

A rainy day makes most of us want a window with a book and a cup of something warm. Capture that rainy day feeling for your book review or unboxing video with our rain sound clips. You can also scare or shock your audience by using a thunderbolt or high-intensity rain sequence—sure to be useful for a school project or telling an unsolved mystery.

Ding

Did you just come up with a brilliant idea mid vlog? Add a ding in post-production to your video and make that moment standout! Including a ding SFX into your video can cue your Sim’s Let’s Play audience in the beginning of a club gathering, highlight the main point of your latest rant, or help you count off your kills in a Call of Duty live stream. Check out our favorite “ding” sound clips below.

Swoosh
