Inspire creativity on any project with tasteful, big budget sounds from our highest quality general library ever.

The Odyssey Collection: Expanded (OX) is meticulously crafted to be the cornerstone of your sonic arsenal. OX represents our latest, most comprehensive general library developed in exclusive collaboration with Academy Award®-winning sound editors, Mark Mangini (Blade Runner 2049, Mad Max: Fury Road) and Richard L. Anderson (The Lion King, Edward Scissorhands). As the second library in The Odyssey Collection following Odyssey Essentials (OE), OX includes all of OE and robustly expands Odyssey’s celebrated depth, breadth, professional quality, and awe-inspiring character.

To create OX, we carefully curated over 32,000 sounds from Mark Mangini and Richard L. Anderson’s private library drawing from work on more than 250 big-budget feature films and TV shows across 30 years. Driven by feedback from OE users, we then invested over 10,000 hours thoroughly editing, cataloging, and mastering sounds from most in-demand categories including Ambiences, Combat, Crowd Walla, Foley, Vehicles and beyond. The result is our pride and joy; a go-to, highly intuitive wealth of world-class sounds ready to inspire and create. You can rely on the OX library to produce your best work on any project or deadline by drawing from authentic ingredients of award-winning quality and craftsmanship.

“Odyssey represents 30 years of passionate pursuit of something I love to do, for the sake of doing it. This library has been instrumental to our own success, and now the sounds can live on in the hands of the next generation of filmmakers and sound designers.”Mark Mangini

What sound artists are saying about The Odyssey Collection:

These are the kind of sounds that I’m always looking for - everything has character and a great cinematic feel. Even the normal, everyday sounds have the feeling of being part of a scene. I’m amazed by the variety, quality and organization.

Absolutely stellar – so much usable source. Even the metadata is great, with suggestions on what it *could* be used for. It feels like it’s not just been recorded with purpose, but subsequently filtered via its usability – highly recommended!

The Odyssey Collection is packed with characterful sounds that are tried and tested. It's like an injection of authenticity. PSE did a great job of putting all this content into a library that makes sense to navigate and is full of lovely surprises.

Extremely useful. All I have to do is type in 'ODY' and I know I will find something fresh, unique, and most importantly CINEMATIC. Everything in the library is very high quality.

Robert Stambler
Robert Stambler Supervising Sound Editor

Every sound is very rich sounding, and at the same time detailed. Every time I’ve used it, I’m always able to find what I need very quickly with its well-organized metadata.

The Odyssey Collection is completely killer. I can't even tell you how easy it has made the last three projects I worked on compared to how I was working before.
