Sound design is a MAJOR component in an show. Did you know there are excellent legal sources of FREE music and sound online for the taking? Some are public domain, meaning they are out of copyright and you can do as you wish with them. Others are royalty free, so you can use them in your personal haunts but you have to get permission to use them in a money making endeavor.

Just about anything you need is out there, and with Audacity (also free) or some other editing software, you can speed them up, slow them down, add reverb, cut and splice, overlap, just about anything!

One great place is the BBC, which has made its sound effects archive available to the public for free for the first time.

The archive incorporates effects used by the corporation's radio output since the 1920s - that tallies up to a staggering 16,000 sound effects:
