Like babies, baby sound effects come in all shapes and sizes. There are many different types of baby sounds wanted by video, film, and animation producers. Like any human being, babies produce all sorts of sounds that can be used for baby sound effects which we have at SFXsource.com. Babies cry, whine, laugh, coo, and hiccup. Baby sounds can be used to express all types of emotions for a baby on film, or an animated character.
The sound of a baby crying elicits strong emotions in a human being, especially a parent. And this emotion is usually stress and a call to action. A baby cry triggers primordial instincts to assist in all of us. For some reason, though such a baby sound effect can be annoying and hard to listen to, crying from babies is the most popular type of downloadable baby sound at SFXsource.com.
Recording a baby is not difficult, any hand held professional digital recorder will do the trick. The hard part, however, is capturing the necessary baby sound effect. Because, unlike adults, babies will not produce a particular sound upon request. Infants, for example, do not yet understand language so asking a newborn to "laugh now" will not produce the necessary results. Instead, a sound designer needs to be ready at all times with a recorder to get the recording when the baby chooses to cry or laugh. You can find both types at SFXsource.com.
There is one particular type of sound designer who has an advantage over all of the rest when it comes to recording baby sound effects. You guessed, a parent. Some of our sound designers at SFXsource.com carried their recorders with them at all times during the first few months of their babies lives in order to build our baby sound fx library. These are authentic baby recordings, made by dedicated sound designers who not only got in the trenches changing diapers and cleaning up slober, but made sure their recording devices were active at the time. Enjoy this sound effect category at SFXsource.com, just be sure to turn down the volume a bit if you come across a particularly vibrant baby crying sound effect in our collection.
