The sound of rain has a calming effect on just about everyone. The sound of drops hitting the window, or thunder pealing in the distance, makes us want to stay inside, stay dry, and stay in bed.

Rain sound effects are excellent background elements, but they also work well as foreground cues if you want to invoke a particular mood in your audience. There are tons of rain sound effects in the Videvo library, but here are a few of our favorites to get you started.

Video Clips

Here are just a few to get started. And after you’ve downloaded these, head to the library for a few more options.
