Audio samples


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.

Will Files, Supervising Sound Editor, Re-Recording Mixer, Sound Designer (War for the Planet of the Apes)

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.

Barney Oram, Game Audio Sound Designer (Star Citizen)

There is so much character present in the sounds... The expressive character helps to give emotional characteristics to the things we're designing.

Matt Yocum, Sound Designer (Pet Sematary)
