So where do you guys go when you want interesting samples and recordings of cool things like elephant noises or rain or chainsaws or whatever the fuck. My go-to site is freesound but the sounds are usually not good and downloading sounds is cumbersome.

They don't necessarily have to be of high quality or anything, I just want to play around with them as building blocks so I can do shitty sound design

I just google search, but on christmas I'm getting a mic that I can hopefully try to do field recording with, and create sound FX. It always looked like a lot of fun watching professionals do it.

Sup Buoy? Here's some from my list of favourites

Sound Bible - http://soundbible.com/
Mostly for cool effects like elephant, rain and chainsaw as you said. This one kicks asses

Free Sound - http://www.freesound.org/
You already mentioned it.

Sound Jay - http://www.soundjay.com/
Nice samples, what else I can say. Oh cool name too, lol.

Oh, and of course as the guy above me said (don't remember the name sorry, and my internet is shit today) just do a research on Google, if you're lucky you can come up with cool things.

Audio Micro has some fantastic sounds, but damn they are expensive. A 10 second sound costs more than a single on iTunes!

If you were working on a serious project, I'd recommend that website, as most sounds are quality and genuine. For mucking around though, probs not worth the money.

This guy seems to have compiled a pretty nicely sized list of free sample resources.

When i need sfx, i usually go to freesound. But finding the right sound there can be a pain.
