Soundelux as a source of great movies

The impressive list of films and TV series is entirely based on the foundation of a comprehensive and well organised sound archive. Over the years, Soundelux always placed great emphasis on the maintenance and expansion of its massive sound archive. The result is a unique and highly organised sound archive.

This coveted sound archive is the secret to Soundelux's creative success; the Soundelux sound archive provided the source files for all the audio post-production of these films. But Soundelux also recorded sounds specially for each film -- and they too are included in the Soundelux archive.

Watch your head—–low-level jet!

The jet in the picture is an F8. What the picture doesn't tell you is just how much noise these airplanes make.

As an example of wonderful sound design, you can listen to this recording of a flying F8 from the Soundelux Sound Archive.

This sound effect was created with great skill––just listen to the incredible dynamic range of the recording or the way it creates the illusion of spatial depth.

You almost feel like you need to duck and hang on to your hat!

This sound effect was randomly picked from the Soundelux sound archive and was originally used in the film 'Kill Bill'. The impact once again impresses, as does the wooden, bamboo-type character of the sound.

The painstaking care that went into the creation of this single sound effect is clearly evident. This is a finished effect made up of various sound elements, mixed and mastered for immediate use.

Soundelux: a grab bag of sounds

Every time you randomly search through the Soundelux sound archive, you will find amazing treasures. For example, how do you feel about having the original sounds of the Star Trek at your disposal? Mind you, we're not talking about the new films —— we're talking about the original TV series starring Kirk, Scotty, Spock and Uhura. Sure, those are the same characters as in the remakes, but we're actually talking about the originals from the 1960s TV series.

Try not to shed tears of joy when you play the following sound (the original bridge alarm from Star Trek!):

Fresh sounds, rarely heard and barely used

It is safe to say that Soundelux offers the exact opposite of 'open source' material. For many years, the Soundelux sounds have only been available to a small and highly exclusive circle of Soundelux employees.

This treasure was guarded for a long time, making it impossible for anyone outside the circle to hear or access the original Soundelux sounds. Soundelux made sure that its libraries would remain exclusive; as a result, its massive and unique sound archive remains unrivalled in the film industry to this day.

Off the beaten path –– with fresh sounds from Soundelux

It sounds like it's too good to be true –– but it is not! These sounds from Soundelux have exclusively been used on Soundelux productions. Unlike other sound archives that have been flooding the market for many years, the libraries from Soundelux are new and fresh and ready to give your production a unique sound.

Surprise your clients with fresh, barely used sounds from Soundelux that will make your work stand out from the crowd. To be honest, Soundelux will turn even a run-of-the-mill production into something special!

The sound archive is the backbone of your company

Sounds and noises are the source of all audio post-production and sound design work.

The variety and variation of the source material are deciding factors in the production process:

if you have to search long and hard for a particular sound, you will lose precious time (and patience, too). A comprehensive and well-organised sound archive allows you to work at a much higher quality level, creating more complex and professional sound tracks.

You can't always record new sounds

When both time and money are tight, it is often impossible to re-record every detail. Particularly the time pressure needs to be addressed in a purposeful and efficient manner.

A great sound archive like the one from Soundelux is the sound designer's backbone. And if you also happen to be the owner of a company, the sound archive is your company's backbone too. It will allow you to take on productions that would otherwise be too overwhelming in terms of workload.

Don't sacrifice quality

Even if time is short, you should never sacrifice quality. Whether you are employed or freelance, a finished production is your business card; it will open doors for you and hopefully lead to more and better work. Is it worth producing rubbish just so you can meet a deadline or budget?

Great work leads to great opportunities

Well, this is the kind of decision everyone has to make for themselves.

In modern-day production, however, it is crucial that the available means are used in a most efficient manner. Investing in a sound archive of the Soundelux calibre not only gives you more possibilities, it also allows you to work more efficiently. In the long run, it will enable you to finish assignments in a speedy and inexpensive fashion –– and to a very high standard too.

Soundelux offers unique source material, a wealth of ideas and tons of variety. It is up to you to discover the most creative ways of using all those elements!

Soundelux for you

The price of Soundelux is available upon request. As you've probably learned, Soundelux is way beyond other commercial archives in terms of quality and size –– and this is also reflected in the pricing.

Soundelux is a long-term investment into your future and your career as a sound designer. With Soundelux you will have the source material that gets you to the top –– and allows you to stay there.

Soundelux for life.

Soundelux will become a loyal companion throughout the years, enriching your life and your productions. Unlike hardware, software, cars or other expensive things, Soundelux is timeless. It does not require gasoline; you don't need to fix its dents; most importantly, you don't need to beat it up with a sledgehammer –– Soundeluxe has all those sounds already!

And neither does Soundelux need a technician to fix broken circuits or switches like on an old analog mixing console. Soundelux doesn't even waste lots of gigawatts of electricity, like old studio consoles used to do. Soundelux needs no support or maintenance work. Soundelux doesn't even need TLC. All Soundelux needs is a bit of storage space...and a few good projects.
