A Great source of great sound effects to choose from for your personal choice.

Its a beneficial for anybody to use to have access to soundeffects

It would be bad for some business's because the more people have acccess to free sound samples companies would loose money because people aren't buying the sounds anymore.

Con: I find it a bit hard to understand the article as a whole, I like free music but most of the tracks do not fit the style I like.
