What are the differences between the audio libraries

Each sound in a library was recorded specifically for that library alone.

Different libraries may contain sounds of the same category, such as “Hits” or “Atmospheres,” but the same exact sound is never repeated in more than one library.

The sounds in each of our SFX products are tailored to a specific theme. For example, Anticipation SFX is tailored to hopeful and expectant moments while Archetype SFX is tailored to more dark and weighty moments.

You can combine SFX from multiple libraries to create more complex moods and tones in your film.

Although each library is versatile in its own right, no single one is designed to be an end all be all product to own. Instead, you should ask yourself what styles you need at your disposal.
