The General HD Sound Effects Collection on Hard Drive or via Download

Our Signature Collection - Recorded in High Definition at 24 bit / 96 kHz

The General HD Sound Effects Collection is Sound Ideas signature sound effects library. It was 3 very busy years in the making. We sent our audio and recording engineers out into the field with state-of-the-art recording equipment and super high quality microphones.  Their task was to start all over again and create a completely new sound effects library in high-definition. The result of their incredible work is a mammoth general sound effects library featuring brand new sound effects recordings - all originally made at 24 bit / 96 kHz.  Their focus and dedication guarantees that you get the very best in crisp, clear, high-definition sound in The General HD Sound Effects Collection.

    The Sound Ideas Hard Drive Warranty:

    All Sound Ideas Hard Drive sales are final. We stand behind the quality of our product by providing this warranty.

    If a registered Sound Ideas Hard Drive crashes and can no longer be accessed, the following warranty will apply.

    For any crash reported within 12 months (1 year) of purchase, Sound Ideas will replace the hard drive with all of the contents supplied in the original purchase free of charge, upon return of the non-operational hard drive and cables to Sound Ideas for full inspection.

    NOTE: This warranty does not apply to (i) any damage arising from failure to follow instructions relating to the product's use (ii) to cosmetic damage (including but not limited to scratches, dents and broken plastic on ports) (iii) to damage caused by accident, abuse, misuse, flood or water damage, fire, earthquake or other external causes or (iv) if the Sound Ideas serial number on the product has been removed or defaced.

    For any crash reported more than 12 months (1 year) after purchase, Sound Ideas will replace the hard drive with all of the contents supplied in the original purchase, but a fee will be charged for this replacement service. The customer will not have to pay for all of the libraries included in the original hard drive, but they will have to pay a replacement fee equivalent to the value of the hard drive itself, plus an administrative charge that will cover the cost of re-creating the hard drive and shipping charges. The customer will be required to return the non-operational hard drive to Sound Ideas before the hard drive can be replaced.
