Ryan Drean (of VO/imaging/RyanOnTheRadio.com fame) had me on the Producer’s Podcast recently, and it was pretty fun! I don’t normally do those types of things, and I talked about a LOT of stuff for a LONG time.
Some of you may know that I periodically help out my friend Bonics with sound design elements for Wiz Khalifa’s shows, or that I do some non-corporate freelance production for my own clients. It’s tough to find good sounds… especially when you don’t know where they’ll be airing and for what those stations/clients are licensed. Don’t get yourself or your clients sued… that’s my motto… or something.
My friend Nick Daley put me up on this crazy deal from ProSoundEffects… they’ve made a Hybrid Library for freelance sound designers that contains over 50,000 effects (real good stuff too, not the BS “free” effects) PLUS 100 downloads from their online library, for $1500 all-in. It’s a lifetime buyout license, so you can use it ANYWHERE and it’s not locked into your company or market.
50k+ sounds for $1500. Hell yes.
Apply for approval, pay the man, and you get a LaCie RuggedMini 500GB USB3 drive with EVERYTHING on it. Metadata’s included for your favorite sound-search tool (which I don’t have yet, haha). The fact that it comes on a RuggedMini helps me especially; since I’m on planes so much, it’s nice to not have to haul a full-size or even a normal-size Rugged when all I need are my FX, and USB3 meshes with my Retina MBP SO nicely.
From their website, it looks like I grabbed one of two remaining units, and the deal ends January 31st. If you need sounds, get on it!
