Can I upload my own sound effects to freeSFX.co.uk?

Yes, it would be great to have you join our community and share your sound effects with us. As long as you are the copyright owner of the sounds you wish to upload or have the copyright owners full permission to distribute them, then you can add them. We do monitor quality to keep the library consistent so any files that are deemed low quality (mainly under than 22 KHz or 8 Bit files or files with excessive hiss) may be deleted.
