Listing only the General 6000 series is a bit odd when there are all the other Sound Ideas products too. How about a general link to their site (listing all their stuff would be a bit too much)?

SFX Libraries:

www.bestservice.de
www.hollywoodedge.com
www.sound-ideas.com

Immediate purchase & download:

www.musicbakery.com
www.sonomic.com
www.sounddogs.com
www.sound-effects-library.com

Yes, good point, I'd just had the General 6000 series recommended to me over IM, and I'm afraid I didn't actually check for other Sound Ideas products at the time, I'll adjust that.

So far I've been unable to load www.sound-effects-library.com, so for now it stays off the list - I'll try it again tomorrow.

Also, rate++ for the contributions. [wink]

//EDIT: Clicky

Oh yeah; it's probably worth putting a link to Sound Idea's monthly promotions section - www.sound-ideas.com/blueplate.html

Any luck with www.sound-effects-library.com ? I can view it OK...

No, still havn't had any luck with it. I'm hesitant to add it to the list while I'm unable to visit it myself, but if you (or anyone) can provide me with some relevant details I'll add the entry anyway, and see if I have better luck from friends houses over the next few days.

Yeah, I personnally don't link sounddogs as their stuff are quite old sounding. Lot of 80'ish sounds.

More to add:
www.opuzz.com - they also have a voice talent site - www.opuzzvoice.com
www.musicbakery.com
www.sonomic.com
www.apmmusic.com
www.tvmusic.com

A couple of those are on the list already, but thanks for the contributions - I'll check out the sites and add them to the list.

I hope it's not inappropriate for me to post this here, but we just launched our online sound library: www.radish-patch.com
I was hoping you could check it out and maybe add it to the list?

Thanks,
Estelle

This topic is pretty ancient, and no longer maintained. I'm just going to go ahead and lock it.
