Free Sounds From Hollywood Sound Designers


Soundsnap.com, a free online sound library and community, is now offering new sounds from notable film sound designers including Paul Virostek (Million Dollar Baby, Ali, Batman Begins) and Ric Viers (sfx libraries for Apple, Adobe, Sonic Foundry, Hollywood Edge).
Describing itself as a "YouTube for sounds", Soundsnap.com is a community-powered Web 2.0 site which aims to facilitate collaboration and sharing between users. Soundsnap currently features more than 35,000 original (and legal) sounds and loops that can be downloaded for free to be used in any kind of film, video, music production or website. Soundsnap.com say that the website has attracted a unique community of professional and amateur music producers, sound designers and musicians that constantly upload new material and share it with the world.
Ric Viers, President of Blastwave FX, whose credits include over 100 sound libraries had this to say, "Soundsnap is a great resource for finding that missing link in your sound library at 3 A.M." Mike Dred, experimental techno DJ and producer on Rephlex Records, is quoted as saying "Soundsnap.com is revolutionizing the sample library industry with license-free audio made by the community for the community."
Tasos Frantzolas, Soundsnap's founder, told us,"The support we've received from leading industry sound designers and music producers has been amazing. Our goal is to become the largest and highest-quality sound library on the Web. With contributors like Mike Dred, Paul Virostek, Ric Viers and the others, we may achieve this dream sooner than expected! Soundsnap has gotten the attention of industry leaders such as Digidesign, Focusrite, Ableton, Native Instruments, Reason's Propellerheads and GCPro, Guitar Center's division for professionals, who have come on board as promotional partners. We hope their customers and the larger audio community will grow to rely on Soundsnap as a key creative tool for their production work.�
Soundsnap tell us that their clean interface, wide selection of high-quality sounds and fresh social networking capabilities have attracted over 200,000 visitors a month and that the numbers are steadily increasing.
