Using sounds to enhance a campaign...

I've been wanting to add background sounds to my campaign.
Whether it be water wave noises when they're at sea or clang of steel during combat.

Does anyone else use background sound to enhance a campaign, and any suggestions of where to find alot of these sounds.
I could capture them from movies, but that seems like alot of work if I can find them.

I dont use sounds, but i use music in background.

Braveheart Soundtrack, Gladiator... Choose your pick! =)

I've got a big battle coming up and figured some music/background of clashing steel would add alot of atmosphere to the game.

We don't use it specially, or time it right at all, but we use the LotR soundtracks and Pirates of the Carribean, when we can be bothered to switch on the computer (alas, our only source of downstairs music since the other CD player broke...).

I find video game background music is the best for mood music. Songs with lyrics can be too distracting, and orchestrated music tends to come to a crescendo at the wrong time.

However, video game music is generally composed as a round, and provides appropriate mood music without being too distracting from the game itself. I prefer the background music from Heroes of Might and Magic 3 myself.

I don't use sounds but soundtracks instead. My group's favourites are Icewind Dale and Hexen II.

Try the "Conan the Barbarian" soundtrack, it's great for setting a battle mood.
