New sound effects site launched by Bjorn Lynne

Dear visitors, readers,

I'm happy to announce today the launch of my new website, This is a brand new site that I've been thinking about developing for years, and I've finally got around to doing it. Today the site is taking live orders for the first time. is, quite simply, a site to obtain sound effect files from. Even though the site is now live with approx. 10,000 sound effect files online, I'm in this for the long haul, and I plan to keep developing the site and the sound effects catalog for years and years.

I know from experience that it takes a long time to make a site successful in the long run. I started my royalty-free music website back in April of 2000, now more than 9 years ago, and this site is a huge success today with more than 3,000 unique visitors each day and doing a lot of business. Over time, I want to do the same thing with

So, what's so great about :-) It's a quick and convenient site with a huge sound effects library that will keep growing for years and years. Customers can easily and quickly buy sound effect files and then download the purchased files any time they want to from within their user account. Customers can buy larger amounts of "Credits" before buying sound files, thus saving up to 40% off stated prices. Once a file is purchased, you can download your sound file as well as a printable tax invoice from within your account area.

Contributors are welcome to participate with their own professional quality sound files. See "Contributors" at the bottom of for details.

And finally, each week there are 5 new professional sound effect files to download completely free from the "Free downloads" section inside your Account area.

Welcome one and all, to !

All the best,
- Bjorn

Hello Ariel,

Thank you for your email and for your interest in my music. I’m sorry, but if you cannot pay for a license to use my music, then you cannot use my music. I’m sorry for that, but I can’t do this for free, because it’s my job, my livelihood. If I give free license to some people, it’s unfair for those who have paid. So: The rule is clear – to use my music in a game, you need a license.

If you need completely free music, you have to find it somewhere else.

Good luck with your projects.

Kind regards,
Bjorn Lynne
