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of their incredible work is a mammoth general sound effects library featuring brand new sound effects recordings - all originally made at 24 bit / 96 kHz.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.


NOTE Downloading Large Products.


Please keep in mind that libraries of more than 1 GB will take longer to download. Also, your download speed will affect how long it will take to download large files. For example, if your download speed is 25 Mbps a 50Gb file will take almost 5 hours to download: a 1 TB will take more than 4 days. Downloading larger files at less than 25 Mbps is not recommended.


If you order a download version of this product, a special download link will be sent to you separately by email after the sale is complete.
