Free Sound Effects for Video Editing: Download 100 Royalty-Free Whoosh SFX
The perfect transitions between scenes
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!

To give you a flavour of what’s included in the SFX Cellar - Whoosh SFX Pack, we’ve got a few examples for you to check out below, as well as some tips on how you could use them in your video.
Selecting a Sound Palette for your YouTube Channel
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 sound like SFX Cellar - Whoosh 03 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, SFX Cellar - Whoosh 15 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.
For a dramatic title sound, try SFX Cellar - Whoosh 85.
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. For more information on this check out our Guide to Timestrecthing and Pitchshifting Sounds. 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!
