Pro Sound Effects The Odyssey Collection Essentials

This is the first exclusive library from Pro Sound Effects’ partnership with Academy Award-winning sound editors, Mark Mangini and Richard L. Anderson.

Featuring over 16,000 sound effects, Odyssey Essentials is a general library selected from Mangini and Anderson’s personal recording collection encompassing nearly 40 years of Hollywood feature film sound.

“I use this library every day,” says Mark Mangini (Mad Max: Fury Road, Blade Runner 2049, The Fifth Element). “It has been an indispensable asset throughout my career, and now sound professionals can leverage our decades of expertise and unlock greater potential for its use.”

Pro Sound Effects has curated and cataloged over 200 hours of recordings from Mangini and Anderson’s secret weapon, including most-needed categories like Ambiences, Foley, and Vehicles. In order to make Odyssey Essentials as accessible and intuitive as possible for your own projects, the PSE Editorial Team logged over 4,000 hours of editing with utmost attention to preserving the detail and authenticity of the recordings.

“The sounds in Odyssey Essentials have a very real and natural feel, and I love the way the metadata is organized,” says re-recording mixer and sound designer Brad Engleking (Sin City, Predators, Machete). “The more I use it, the more I look for it.”
