Sound Ideas Launches New General HD Sound Effects Collection
Posted May 2, 2011

Launched at the recent NAB Show, the General HD Collection comprises over 25,000 new recordings, recorded in high definition 24 bit/96 KHz resolution.
A massive array of pristine recorded sound effects are available: including animals and birds, contemporary and vintage airplanes, cars, trucks, boats and weapons – to name a few.

Brian Nimens, President and CEO of Sound Ideas comments:

“The General HD builds on our well respected range of libraries.
We have taken extraordinary care to record rare species of animals – as well as authentic vehicles and equipment – for example an original World War II air raid siren.

We feel this new collection will be a huge asset to film makers and post production editors worldwide.”

The General HD is available on a professional grade external hard drive with multiple USB and Firewire interfaces – formatted for either MAC or PC.

The 25,000 plus sound effects (comprising over 160 hours of audio) are available in a variety of formats:
24 bit/96KHz broadcast wav files, as well as 16 bit /44.1, 16 bit/48 and 24bit /48 - all embedded with fully cross referenced metadata for detailed and accurate asset management searches.

The General HD collection retails for $3,995.
