Los Angeles, CA, Dec. 16, 2010. AudioMicro announces the addition of the Sounddogs sound effects library, adding over 15,000 professional royalty free sound effects to its online archive. Headed by Rob Nokes, whose credits include such films as X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Real Steel, Million Dollar Baby, Generation Kill, and Seabiscuit, the Sounddogs collection is well known for being a comprehensive, progressive, original collection that also pulls from SoundStorm, a now defunct illustrious sound company that had seven Academy Award Nominations and over two-hundred and fifty feature film credits.
Categories within the Sounddogs collection include ambience, animals, impacts, guns, science fiction, whooshes and everything in between. The addition of Sounddogs brings AudioMicro's total file count to over 225,000 stock music and sound effects tracks, all pre-cleared for use in creative audio-visual productions. More of Sounddogs 135,000 sound effects recordings will be added in 2011.
AudioMicro is a collection of user-generated royalty free music, sound effects, production music, and music cues. The platform offers advertisers, music supervisors, creative directors, webmasters, filmmakers, and "YouTubers" an affordable, quality solution for securing sync music for use in creative audio-visual projects. With content purchased from AudioMicro for as little as $1 per minute, a movie or webisode can be scored at a fraction of the cost of a traditional production library. The AudioMicro collection is an ever-expanding archive of pre-cleared tracks from publishers, composers, independent bands, and sound designers worldwide.
Sounddogs.com was started in August 1996, and went online in May 1997. It was the world's first online commercial sound effects and production music library long before the Apple iTunes music store. Sounddogs prides itself on having a vast, easily accessible sound library for immediate download (in .aiff, .wav. and .mp3) and packaged on CD/DVD or hard drive as the entire Soundstorm library. In November 2004, Sounddogs acquired the immense sound effects library of SoundStorm, a seven-time nominee and winner of an Academy Award for Best Sound Editing.
