18 new sound libraries and 4 web stores are now live on Sound Effects Search.
Thank you to the publishers for adding their info to the new website form, and the new sound library form. Thanks also to publishers and visitors who have sent me updates and additions to existing libraries.

Yesterday, I announced Sound Effects Search on Creative Field Recording. Thank you to everyone who shared the news, and took the website for a spin.

Today Sound Effects Search is launching two sound library lists.
These two lists were created to help sound pros find the audio collections they need, and to give creators more visibility. This post will explain a bit more about the lists and how you can join them.

However, the main focus of this will be simplicity. There will be no images. There will be no promotion. The design will remain basic. Why? We want Sound Effects Search to be a tool to effortlessly find new independent sound libraries.
Using the sound library Web shop list is pretty basic. There are only two columns.

As noted, more improvements to this page are coming soon.
