I've been recording on my own for a couple of years now and have accumulated a decent library of sounds. But i decided i should invest in a “smallish” sound library to round out my collection and provide me with quick access to sounds I can't typically record myself.
I've been looking for something on the smaller end (i don't exactly have the budget for soundstorm) while still being relatively inclusive, like blastwave FX’s thousand sound pack: http://www.blastwavefx.com/p128/wavFX%20Mini%20Sound%20Effects%20&%20Production%20Elements%20Suite/product_info.html
The problem i'm running into is that most libraries in this price range are theme specific, while the overview type libraries from other companies (Hollywood Edge) are starting at around $700.
That being said, i was wondering if anyone has suggestions, alternatives, or just general wisdom before i pull the trigger on it.
