Free Sound Effects for Video Editing: Download 100 Royalty-Free Whoosh SFX
If you want to stand out on YouTube, having a recognisable brand is really important. With over 500 hours of content uploaded to the site every minute, it’s tough to make a splash, but a strong channel image can go a long way to helping you achieve that.
A huge and often overlooked part of branding is sound design. You may have awesome logos, snazzy transitions, a slick title sequence and a devastatingly witty catchphrase, but have you got a signature sound?
Title cards, name tags, transitions and more can all be given energy with a simple rumble or whoosh sound effect. Likewise, by adding a couple whip and sweep SFX to your title sequence you can create real movement whilst also giving your audience members an auditory queue that they’ll instantly associate with your videos – they’ll know who they’re watching without even looking at the screen!
To help you create your signature online sound we’ve put together a pack of 100 royalty-free sounds that you can download for free and use in your videos!
In this SFX Cellar - Whoosh SFX Pack, you’ll find loads of different royalty-free whoosh, swipe, whip and sweep sounds to bring your videos to life, giving them movement and creating an instantly recognisable sound palette.
To give you a flavour of what’s included in the SFX Cellar - Whoosh SFX Pack, we’ve got a few examples for you, as well as some tips on how you could use them in your video.
If you want to create a solid sonic identity for your YouTube videos, it’s worth putting together a selection of sounds for particular purposes. A standard YouTuber might need a sound for scene transitions, titles appearing on screen and your video ending to name just a few. Make a list of all the different scenarios you might need sound for in your video, download the SFX Cellar - Whoosh SFX Pack and then pick a sound for each.
Let’s look at a few options. Say you’re interviewing someone and their name appears at the bottom of the screen, a whoosh sound playing as the name appears would help draw attention to their name and add a touch of professionalism to the interview.
If you’re looking for a classic sweep scene transition sound, a quick whoosh sound effect is perfect. Yes, it may be a little cliché, but it’s cliché for a reason: it’s airy, fun and instantly recognisable – perfect for a vlogger.
It might not be right for everyone, but with 99 other royalty-free SFX to pick from, you’ll be able to find a sound that works for you.
You can also mess with the sounds by timestretching and pitchshifting until they’re just right for your videos. Of course you could also take a few sounds from our SFX Cellar - UI Buttons pack or any of the sounds in our SFX Cellar and throw them in the mix!
