Freelance Sound Designers Review the Hybrid Library

The Hybrid Library (dubbed “The Robin Hood of Sound Effects Libraries“) was put together with the free­lance sound designer in mind.  In fact, the con­tents of the Hybrid Library were based on feed­back that we received from work­ing free­lance sound design­ers.  So noth­ing makes us hap­pier than receiv­ing these reviews from work­ing pro­fes­sion­als that have spent nearly a year with the Hybrid Library.  We’ll con­tinue to lis­ten to your feed­back to improve the orig­i­nal Hybrid Library, and to guide our future Expan­sions that will com­ple­ment the orig­i­nal game-changing Hybrid Library.

Thanks Hybrid­ers!

I have been a pro­fes­sional sound edi­tor for 10 years and have worked at major stu­dios with mas­sive libraries. I recently went out on my own and opened my own stu­dio with the Hybrid Library as the core.

There are tons of great sounds in here. A lot of designed ele­ments that speed up work­flow by not hav­ing to design a stinger or a bed if you don’t have the time. The musi­cal record­ings are a great resource espe­cially if you cut a lot of animation.

Over­all AMAZING vari­ety of sounds for the money and a great start­ing place to build a solid library.”

Can’t beat this library for the price!! You can make any project work with what is here.I just fin­ished a 90 minute fea­ture film with heavy sound design and I would say more than 75% of what I used came from the Hybrid Library. It has been a fan­tas­tic library and has expanded my abil­ity to do work for a wide vari­ety of clients from cor­po­rate videos, to TV series, to fea­ture films.

This library is the best value you will find on the mar­ket. You can truly make any sound design project work with what is in this library. The Hybrid Library has expanded my abil­ity to be cre­ative and has made my work a lot faster because I don’t have to build sound effects 5–10 tracks deep any­more. I’d highly rec­om­mend the Hybrid Library to anyone.”

For years I have been doing sound design for fea­ture films, TV and web videos with a small sound effects library. I recently pur­chased the Hybrid Library and I’m aston­ished at how much faster I can com­plete projects that sound bet­ter than ever. This is exactly what I needed as an inde­pen­dent, one man oper­a­tion. The price will quickly make up for itself in increased pro­duc­tiv­ity. I can’t believe how many high qual­ity sounds there are here in such a broad range of cat­e­gories. This is the library to invest in if you are a freelance/independent sound designer like me.”


I had a big Library before, but this one added a lot:
Nearly every­thing I´m look­ing for, includ­ing a lot of 5.1 sounds.”

I got this as a starter library for my assis­tant, but I ended up using it myself first on the film I’m work­ing on right now. It’s a great gen­eral library to start with, it cov­ers a lot of dif­fer­ent areas and has a lot of variations.”

I have recently bought a copy of their library. WOW. These are really great sounds. Very good record­ings and easy to find stuff. Highly rec­om­mended over some of the poorly recorded “stan­dard” libraries IMHO.”

I’m just start­ing to dig into the library…It’s a lit­tle over­whelm­ing, in a good way!”

The Hybrid Library is priced for the inde­pen­dent artist. […] The value it presents the inde­pen­dent user is well beyond its price tag.”
