Logic Pro X Sound Effects?

Does anyone have a free package of just sound effects for logic pro x?

I found this video but my newer version of Logic apparently does not have this? So if someone knows how to access that library or just download some nature sounds from a package that'd be tight! Thanks!

Free sample packs and sound effects for you.

Hello guys. I know websites that music producers can use to score free samples and loops for their music. The secret is knowing where to look. So, I’ve made the process even easier by compiling a list of websites that offer free samples and loops that you can use in your next project. Many of these sites vary from major sound databases like Freesound . org to small blog sites dedicated to a particular niche.

- Vehicles (train, car engine, etc)
- Nature (birds, thunder, rain)
- Foley

- Indoor (different small/medium rooms)
- Outdoor (forest, city)

- very low noise level
- fast transient response
- flat frequency response
- cardioid
- small diaphragm

Capturing Sound Effects and Creating Beats

My ultimate goal is to capture sound effects from random objects and make beats out of them.

1. What is the best, cheapest microphone to use?

I'm talking sound effects from ANYTHING: water splashing against shower curtain, click of the keyboard keys, beatboxing from mouth, hand clap, snapping a bubble gum bubble... anything.

Eventually I would like to input each individual sound into a program and use the program to facilitate making beats out the sounds. I have NO idea what program to use to do this, so I guess this can be a 2 part thread.

Looking for a particular sound effect

Does anyone know of the sound effect library this sound came from?…"]YouTube - ‪That creaking door stock sound‬‏[/]="…"]YouTube - ‪That creaking door stock sound‬‏[/]

It is in many movies & games from 80s-90s.


Looking for sound effects

I am doing some animated videos, lots of 3D text etc. I am looking for good sound effects. I have looked at several but cant find good ones. They all seem to be overly dramatic, huge blasts and bangs and crashes, great if you're producing one of those over the top radio spots, but I am looking for more subtle, cool sounds. I am not looking for free or cheap, I want the best.
