You need good sound effects to create a good video, game or app.
Good sound design can add humour, enhance realism, or simply make your project more believable.
But there's no need to hire a dedicated audio designer. Here is a list of the 30 most popular sound effects on AudioJungle, and a few ways that you could use them.
1. Fast Whoosh
The most popular sound effect on AudioJungle contains three different whoosh sounds.
You could use them to emphasise fast moving objects in a movie or animation, or you could use them for fly in titles in presentations or trailers.
Whoosh sounds can easily be sped up or pitch shifted in an audio editor to create different speeds.
2. Abstract Glitch Effects Pack
A combination of 19 different glitch sounds that could be easily integrated into your video, animation, voice over or intro clip. They would work great for radio transitions, too. Just add a voice over at the end saying the name of the radio station, and you're done.
3. Cinematic Whoosh Impact Sound
Similar to number one in this list, but deeper and more epic. Better for larger objects. Could be used for trailers, cinematics, websites, or even in music compositions.
4. Hi-Tech Cybernetic Device
Electronic bleeps and high pitched mechanical whirring. Great for a robot, android or a speaking computer.
5. Mouse Click
Mouse click noise with a release. Great for screen share and explainer videos where you want to add more realism and immersion.
6. Record Needle Scratch
Realistic needle scratch sound. Great for transition between pieces of music in a video. You could add emphasis to a specific phrase or word by cutting the music with this sound effect.
7. Transformation Rise Impact
A futuristic transformation sound. Think large transforming robots or futuristic space ship take offs.

Pleasant computer interface sounds for pop-ups, error messages, notifications and button presses. They sound warm and inviting, and have a futuristic element. You could even replace your own computer interface sounds with these.
