Anthens, Greece (April 19, 2011)–Soundsnap has announced the immediate availability of its new collection of royalty-free sound effects from renowned sound editor, Coll Anderson.
“Coll is one of the most sought-after sound editors in the industry,” said Soundsnap founder, Tasos Frantzolas. “He has helped to sharpen the focus and story of films with the creative use of sound. Now his compilation of rare sounds will allow our users to add gripping audio to any project.”
This collection of 5,800 sound effects includes processed sound design drones, various guns, insects, Amazon ambiances, rare muscle cars, “death” cars, and extensive Foley recordings.
Anderson has been working with sound for 22 years. His work includes recording, editing, designing and mixing, and spans indie art house classics, award-winning documentaries and many studio films. His production resume includes Steve Buscemi’s acclaimed Trees Lounge, Errol Morris’ Oscar-winning The Fog of War, Sundance Grand Jury Prize winners Frat House, Manda Balla and Restropo, Universal Studio’s action classic, Death Race, and the Emmy-winning television drama, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.
“Sound on its own is never as interesting as sound in context,” said Anderson. “Most of what is in my library are recordings for film that were made with respect to a sound that was worth recording, that I needed, but that also could be captured in an environment that was somehow excited by the event. I hope what they say helps you create what you have to say.”
With over 700,000 users, Soundsnap is reportedly the largest membership-based professional sound effects and music loops library in the world.
