Big News! We have just added over 55,000 new sound effects from The Hollywood Edge, the world’s most widely used sound effect library. These sound effects were created by the Academy Award-winning sound studio Soundelux, whose credits include such films as Kill Bill, Braveheart, and Fast and Furious. The Hollywood Edge and Soundelux are part of the CSS Studios group of companies. CSS Studios is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Discovery Communications (NASDAQ: DISCA) and provides creative services to major motion picture studios, independent producers, broadcast networks, cable channels, and advertising agencies. CSS services are marketed under the brand names Todd-AO, Sound One, Soundelux, POP Sound, Modern Music, and The Hollywood Edge. This content partnership is a big step forward for AudioMicro and brings our total track count to over 150,000 and growing.
In addition to our superb collection of user-generated content, we can now deliver, on-demand, thousands of sounds created by the world’s most talented sound professionals. Our users should be impressed with the unprecedented quality, size and scope of The Hollywood Edge collection. Under the terms of a new licensing agreement, our members have access to The Hollywood Edge’s library of professional-grade sound effects royalty free and under the same pricing and terms as our user generated, crowd-sourced sound effects. Prices for individual sound effects are as little as $1 per minute, while subscription packages start at just $9 per month. End users are permitted to use the content for all digital media, including websites, short online films, motion pictures, feature films, flash animations, radio advertisings, PowerPoint presentations, live performance, remixes and other purposes. Historically, The Hollywood Edge library has been available only in the form of large sound effects packages on hard drives, CD’s and DVD’s and aimed at the professional market.
