Another great use: you can find spooky Halloween sounds! I just typed howl in the engine, and got plenty o'hits back. Interesting!

I've been wanting a tool like this. Good catch!

What an excellent site. I'd have to say bassoon is my favourite but only because like saying that word.

We use this engine in our psycholinguistics lab when we need enivormental sounds. It's very handy.

Iceberg finds it easier to extract fingernails from his "patients" when they are soothed by the sounds of a cool mountain stream.

No, really, this thing is great.

I love Moose. So regal sounding.

Anything that can't help me find an audio clip of Barry and Levon rubbing their butt in $240 worth of pudding is in conflict with my prime directive. Just kidding, cool link...

Yeah, this is a great companion for ACID projects.

But only 25 hits for "bowling"?

This is very neat. Sounds would make a nice new tab in the Google UI, along with Images, etc.

Oh, yummy. I've been looking for the perfect evil laugh.
I think #16 ought to do it.

Nice to know that there's a site out there that lists 179 fart sounds. Oh baby, I'm in heaven!

It's more on the pro end (that is, it costs money), but SoundDogs is pretty damn thorough. They're the guys who make "The General" and many other SFX collections one finds lurking in edit suites.

couldn't find whizz or kerboing. Everyone needs a good kerboing.
