I was just wondering if any of you were aware of any good sites to get sound effects for your interface? Or do a lot of you just synthesize your own? (tried that once never got more then a loud squeaky phhhh sound)
Wanted to post this before I go google hunting.

sound on websites suck. when i go to a site with sound i usually close it straight away. if i *really* need to see the site i go back after i have turned my computers sound off.

especially if you surf from work which most people do. just my opinion of course!

yeah I trashed the idea anyways, it was gonna be a flash site which needed some sound, but decided against the whole thing.

Some websites need sound to keep from being boring, like alot of Flash websites just wouldn't be the same without sound.

I agree, I don't think a flash site would be a flash site without some sound, but too much is annoying, like every link you click it goes BLAM or something ;) However flash navigators don't really need it, just whole flash pages.

IMO, sound is meant to enhance the site and the motion of a flash design. and too much of it definitely takes away from the visual aspect of
it. I agree with you guys, too much isn't good for the design or the
reputaion of flash. Tons of bad designs and annoying sounds make
people hate it across the board, rather than for it's actual value.
