Looking to revive the deals question. I just upgraded Ableton Live to Suite and got some nice sound libraries from Precisionsound.

Holiday sales post from designing sound.org Definitely check out the Boom library's advent calendar of deals. As for me, I recently made a bunch of Black Friday purchases from Waves.


This is a small thing, but Pro-sound is offering a 25$ gift to use in the rentals or service department. Just mention the gift via pro sound newsletter/email from Richard Topham Jr.


The Deals at Plugin Alliance are still going until Jan 1st:



Here is a full list of december special sound effect libraries: Blastwave FX, BBC, Sound Ideas 50% deals, Sounddogs, Hollywood Edge and my own 5.1 libraries. Have a look: https://www.soundeffects.ch/soundlibraries_e.php?view=Specials-Deals-Sound-Effect-Libraries

Why are there no wind collections? Give me some forest atmospheres (no planes, no cars, no stupid people in the back), good recorded birds and also correct descibed, where are the thunderclaps?? It takes you endless houres of boring waiting, frustrating situations with no results in the end, lots of interference which ruins your records.

  • ...Hollywood Edge and also on Sound Ideas libraries, at Sounddogs, BBC and my own collections and others I forgot. If you like it or not is a personal thing, but everybody is invited to go out and make his own records - and see how difficult it is. Dec 14, 2012 at 11:28
