We took a look at this new way of buying sound effects back in the early days of Sunday Sound Effects Roundup and now as Sonniss approaches its first anniversary, Tim McHugh who is the powerhouse behind Sonniss got in touch to give a sneak preview of the new developments he and his team are working on to improve this independent Sound Effects Site.
They will be releasing an entirely new feature set and the product page will be fully-interactive and you will be able to buy single files, with a waveform view on every track, an instant search results with a Boolean string search. You will be able to follow your favourite sound designers with real-time instant notifications and activity feed updates. The aim is that there will be no waiting around and every single track in the database will be available, sortable, searchable, listenable and of course purchasable.

Cooper Skinner from Moon Echo Audio has been in touch to tell us about the sound effects collections they are offering, which seem to bridge the gap between sound design and music composition.
Wild Montana Winter

"The shattering of rational thought that becomes replaced with the most disturbing of intentions. The uncontrollable urges that drive the mind to become demented and unhinged. The cacophony of hazy voices, that relentlessly beckon from the inside of ones own head". Moon Echo Music have tried to embrace the decay of the human psyche with Shadowscapes. This anxiety-inducing 2.6GB sound effects suite features 100 soundscapes inspired by all things maddening, is intended to add bleak, atmospheric tension to projects in the horror, sci-fi, fantasy, surrealism and music production. Utilising processing effects including granular synthesis, pitch shift and complex delays, the sounds can be used individually or carefully layered to add density to your own morbid creations. Have a listen to the textures of Shadowscapes and get ready to lead your audience down the path of pure melodic mental mayhem! You can buy Shadowscapes for $69.
Cooper told us that that Movement essentials and Shadowscapes are both finding favour in the fields of animation and motion graphics. He also has used the art of Daniel de Wit for the covers of these libraries.
