Flume’s sound design is so good it’s almost criminal to not share it with the world… thankfully, he’s done just that.


In a new project he’s calling the Flume Sound Files, he’s just shared a dozen sound clips ranging between 6 seconds and 63 seconds and of varying BPM.

A more open source culture of creativity…wanted to put these out in the world and see what comes back – download a sound, create something, upload it with the hashtag

It comes with a catch though. Included in the Dropbox is a user agreement that lays out the rules for using these sounds. Most importantly, you cannot monetize anything you create from these sounds; and related, Flume can use anything you create and upload only if it is to “promote or otherwise recap” the experiment. Apart from that, the world is your oyster.

Grab all the sounds here — you can listen to a preview of each and download them. Be sure to read the User Agreement carefully.
