Norwegian startup Soundly has launched its new Soundly app for Windows and Mac, giving you instant access to thousands of sound effects in the cloud.

Soundly on laptop

You can preview, edit and drag-and-drop sounds in real-time, straight from the Soundly Cloud into your favorite DAW or video editing suite. Soundly can also manage your existing sound effects collections, giving you a useful librarian for all your sounds. Instantly search across the cloud-based libraries, as well as your local sound collections, to find the SFX you need. And, of course, access your sound effects in the cloud from anywhere in the world.

Premium features include the continuously-updated Soundly PRO SFX library, with thousands of custom-recorded sounds, as well as a Store module that enables you to purchase additional premium libraries on the fly.
