We Help Creators Bring Ideas To Life Through Sound

Sound brings our ideas, stories, memories, and emotions to life. The team at Pro Sound Effects (PSE) shares a passion for sound and belief in creative freedom. Based in Brooklyn since 2004, we’ve been on a mission to:

Empower All Creators to Quickly Find and Use
the Right Sounds for Any Creation

So far in our journey, we’ve developed over 800,000 royalty-free sound effects through our exclusive partnerships with Academy Award®-winning masters-of-craft, renowned recordists, and next-level designers from around the globe. We’ve created sound library workflow software that enables any creator to find the right sound and spot instantly from cloud to timeline.

Award-winning freelancers, teams, and media companies working in film, television, games, and beyond rely on our sound effects libraries and software to fuel creativity, finish projects faster, and deliver their best sound.
