online sound design resources

create digital music has put together a round-up of 15 online resources geared towards sound design for both film and games.
Sound design is a fundamental aspect of nearly every form of digital media, from music production to games to commercial radio. Sometimes seen as a ‘dark art’, sound design can also be viewed as difficult and mysterious, often deterring would-be creators. Here are 15 sound design resources to help rookies and veterans alike.

The 15 sites are split into different categories:
Fundamentals: audiotuts, sound on sound, digital pro sound.
Sound for Film: filmsound, filmsounddaily, syncsoundcinema.
Sound for Games: gamasutra, GANG, music4games, IASIG, sound-music-interactive-games.
Communities & Lists: game audio forum, game audio pro, sound_design.
Other: USO.

If you're interested in either sound for film or sound for games, you should be looking at these websites (and others) on a regular basis as they all have some really useful and informative articles.
You can subscribe to an RSS feed from most of the above sites which can make keeping up to date really easy.
