logito About PSE

 Pro Sound Effects pro­vides Next Level sound effects resources to the ever-expanding Uni­verse of media pro­duc­ers. We com­bine inno­v­a­tive tech­nolo­gies and extrater­res­trial cre­ativ­ity with our exclu­sive, con­tin­u­ally grow­ing Mas­ter Library of 120,000+ sound effects to deliver:


Next Level Library
We curate a full sonic spec­trum of sound effects libraries from our exclu­sive, com­ple­men­tary and con­tin­u­ously updated cat­a­logs. These 8 cat­a­logs com­bine to form the 120,000 + sound effects that make up our almighty moth­er­ship, the Pro Sound Effects Mas­ter Library – avail­able on hard­drive or in cyber­space.

Our royalty-free libraries range from his­tor­i­cal to con­tem­po­rary to futur­is­tic, stereo to sur­round sound, and are con­stantly evolv­ing with the rich­est meta­data stan­dards, deliv­ery for­mats and res­o­lu­tions required to cre­ate next level media productions.


Next Level Licensing

As sound effects licens­ing spe­cial­ists, we pro­vide sim­ple, flex­i­ble licens­ing solu­tions that span from the indi­vid­ual user work­ing on a sin­gle project to enter­prises with 1000’s scat­tered across the galaxy. We also license for cus­tom appli­ca­tions and OEM bundling. Our solu­tions are indus­try – spe­cific and cus­tom tai­lored to your access require­ments – be they via your local servers or through our web – based options.

We are the licensed copy­right admin­is­tra­tors for all of our cat­a­logs – this enables us to guar­an­tee that your spe­cific usage is always sim­ple, safe and legal.

Pro Sound Effects (PSE) was founded in 2004 by Dou­glas Price and was a fea­tured chap­ter in best-selling busi­ness book, “The Four Hour Work Week.” For the record, we no longer work 4 Hours Per Week – more is required to take it to the Next Level. The PSE Team is led by Dou­glas, Laura Sin­nott (Library & Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Spe­cial­ist) and Jeremy Siegel (Library & Licens­ing Spe­cial­ist). We are head­quar­tered in down­town New York City (click for our office address and con­tact info).
