Deliver your best sound with award-winning quality.

Great sound begins with quality tools. Odyssey Starter gives you instant access to go-to sound effects from the private library of two Academy Award®-winners created for over 250 Hollywood feature films and shows. Fuel your projects with dazzling design elements, devastating impacts, subtle transitions, whooshes, foley and beyond.

Formerly the secret sonic weapon of Mark Mangini (Blade Runner 2049, Mad Max: Fury Road) and Richard L. Anderson (Batman Returns, The Lion King), these sounds are now available to you 100% royalty-free for unlimited usage. Selected from over 100,000 recordings, we have carefully curated and cataloged a powerful, compact general library – featuring the most useful, standard, inspiring, and surprising sound effects that will help you take your sound and stories to the next level in your film, television, game, and music projects.

“I use this library every day. It 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. I’m amazed by the variety, quality and organization.

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.

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.
