4.0 out of 5 stars High Quality
I used some of these sounds for a quiz.

They are good quality tracks.

If you need these sounds on a CD (rather than as MP3 Downloads) this series of CDs is a good way to go,

2.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag
Not terrible value but after listening to a random selection from three different volumes I can simplify it to this: there are some simple good recordings, including some wooden performances such as laughter and there are some compressed/poor quality recordings.

Not terrible value but after listening to a random selection from three different volumes I can simplify it to this: there are some simple good recordings, including some wooden performances such as laughter and there are some compressed/poor quality recordings. Compared to Hollywood FX libraries these volumes are a long way off.

Example: I was looking for a conventional background suburb sound effect and I was disappointed to find a decent suburb recording (vol. 02 animals & nature) tainted with a continuous resonant drone of a nearby vehicle.

some of the worst traits heard include:
- clicks & pops
- compression
- unnecessary reverb on sounds
- phase cancellation

My advice is to pay more for better sounds.

I use sound samples when making music, I have had experience with zyx(the makers of this c.d) before. It always seems to be cheap quality recordings. I would buy this c.d if you only want it for a bit of fun but stay clear if you need a high standard sound,

Bought for use on hospital radio...does what it says on the can. More than a couple of these are probably not necessary unless you are doing a very special recording or radio stage[play}
