Find and Share Free Sound Effects and Loops

Found this wonderful site through a posting in the newsgroup (thanks to the author, Ricky Hunt, for the find). Soundsnap is a "free online sound library and community for sound designers and producers. People can upload sounds and share them with the world." From the site's FAQ:

Who is Soundsnap for?
Soundsnap is mainly for Sound designers/recordists and music producers, filmmakers, web designer's and video game developers. It can also be useful to hobbyists for their home videos, people looking for ringtones and anyone else that needs sounds.

Why did you create Soundsnap?
People are moving from sample CD's and sound effects libraries to looking for sounds online. Everything is becoming digital and free. There was no one online offering a huge library of free material that was really high quality. Before Soundsnap, most sites were either paid sites or they had a lot of junk.

Any tool that assists in the creative songwriting process is greatly appreciated. A grateful acknowledgement to the site's creator, Tasos Frantzolas, a young sound designer living in Athens, Greece, on making this tool available... I encourage you to check it out and may the Muse be with you...
