A while back I purchased "the general 6000" a great but EXPENSIVE collection of sound effects from SoundIdeas.com. I just got an e-mail that they have now placed 70,000 of their effects on-line for download at $5 each flat rate. Check it out here at StockMusic.com Also for those who haven't searched a lot around CB you'll find a lot of us like Sounddogs.com (that's where I have been buying my individual effects from). Their prices vary from about $2-$15 depending on the length and quality of the effect. Looks like if you are buying a short sound, Sound Dogs is the way to go but a longer sound you might get a better deal from Stock Music. Yes there are free sources of sound effects out there but the quality is poor compared to these companies.
