How to use City Sounds

If you’re working on a movie or a video game that takes place in a city, you will need some high-quality city sound effects to immerse the audience into your project.

It’s easy to forget how many different sounds exist in a busy city. We usually try to block out the city noise, but listening to city sounds can be an interesting experience.

The bustling metropolis comes alive with many street sounds that form the unique auditory tapestry of urban life.

From the distant hum of traffic and the occasional honk of an impatient driver to the rhythmic footsteps of pedestrians and the melodic chime of a tram bell, these are the sounds that define the rhythm of a city.
