Courthouse Crowds Sound Effects

Courthouse Crowds Sound Clip Library

Wander the corridors and chambers of dignified halls of justice in the Courthouse Crowds sound fx library.

This collection showcases the sounds of lawyers and judges, plaintiffs and the accused, crowds and more in airy halls, quiet court rooms, tight corridors, and echoey atriums.

You will hear crowds wander across creaking wooden floors & crisp marble entranceways. There are bustling crowds awaiting court to be in session. You’ll hear duty counsel and public defenders chatting. Listen to lawyers argue bail terms. Witness the Crown Attorneys (District Attorneys) represent the government. Hear clerks sort, staple, and copy papers, and push carts of briefs down hallways. Feel courtroom presence as people whisper and shift on wooden pews.

Note: each track has been sanitized. Sensitive personal information has been smoothly edited and obscured for complete privacy of those appearing in court.


Also available: 16 bonus loop-ready versions of the Courthouse Crowd clips for $0.99. These alternative versions of the free sound effects have been crafted to loop seamlessly and sit beneath your headlining tracks.
