Search by Pro Sound Effects studio

Search is a focused, powerful desktop application for macOS built to fit seamlessly in the audio post-production workflow and enhance the sound library experience. Index and organize audio files and recordings, rapidly pinpoint sound effects via keyword, and drop directly into any editing software.

“We see ourselves as a workflow company,” says Douglas Price, Founder & President of Pro Sound Effects.

“The goal of our sound libraries has been to deliver world-class quality, making it easy to find, mix and blend into any project you are working on. We created Search to optimize the entire experience of your library – whether or not you’re working with our sounds.”
