We’ve just added a new Web shop by sound designer Jack Powell. Powell’s sound effects store features two sound collections:
Find Indie Sound Fx Libraries
This week they released two new packs:
I’m always excited to hear what new libraries field recordists are releasing. Part of this is hearing the cool, fresh sound effects people are recording.
I also find it interesting to see how these libraries come about. What types of libraries are people releasing? What sort of collections do people crave? I learned a lot about this while browsing the great libraries everyone has released in the past year.

18 new sound libraries and 4 web stores are now live on Sound Effects Search.
