Pro Sound Effects is making its Soundrangers sound effects library available on a single portable hard drive made by Glyph Technologies.
The Soundrangers library consists of 21,000 effects (est. 137 GB … remember when that was a lot?). It is regularly updated and has a search application. The library has been used by the Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, HBO and Google. It has also been used for social network sites and games.
Soundrangers explained its library: “Our goal was to create a unique and diverse sound library that addressed the needs of interactive developers. One feature of this is we pre-edit everything so end users can just drop the sounds into their game or interactive production. This approach also makes the sounds very easy to use in just about any type of project.”
The effects files are in MP3 and Ogg Vorbis formats and include metadata. One year of free updates is included. The package is Windows- and Mac-compatible. A three-year data replacement guarantee is included.
