Anyone know where to get sounds for videos?

I am a hobbyist and am looking for dramatical sound effects for my videos. Things like short musical bits that are a few seconds long and can be added to scenes to add drama or humor to a video. It's a little bit difficult to descibe a sound I want with words, but does anyone have any recommendations of websites to look into or CDs for sale? Thanks

Sounds for Video

I've used the HulaBear collection for a year now, and as a hobbyist, have yet to run out of useful material. They're quite inexpensive compared to most - www.hulabear.com

I was going to recommend Findsounds, but I see Adrian beat me to it :p

There are also lots of good sound effects over at Flashplanet. They're meant for use in Macromedia Flash so they're not really high quality but it's acceptable for most uses.

Are these royalty and "truly" free sounds?

Go to www.soundideas.com As a production director this has been my favorite choice when buying music and sound effects.

Also you can check out this other sites:
www.musicbakery.com (buyout)
www.sound7.com (buyout)
www.networkmusic.com (license fee)
Hope this can help.

Cheers!
Alexis

I checked out Hulabears, and was pretty impressed by the prices. Then, i read the legal stipulations- the music is royalty free, but only for home video, powerpoint presentations, etc. Anything you planned on broadcasting would violate the agreements. I hate fineprint!
