What others are saying about SoundBits:

If you’re in need of sound design material with an electronic edge, the SoundBits Whooshes and Impacts are an excellent choice. I’ve used the Whooshes and Impacts bundle for my TV series Scorpion It’s great material for use in video games too.
– David Barbee
Worked with Warner Bros. Studios, TODD Soundelux and Sony Pictures Entertainment as Sound Effects Editor on Star Trek, Number 23, CSI: NY, Angel, and many more.

Soundbits continues to deliver…I use the design stuff regularly in my shows and the foley libraries are invaluable to any effects editor’s library.

Fantastic libraries of sci-fi sonic goodness that I’ve been using for a few years now and they never fail to impress (especially layered) – now that Saro is also doing more conventional libraries with his ambiences and foley sets, the collection has become really well rounded and I rarely cut a show that doesn’t dip into my soundbits arsenal!

A great palette especially for the sci-fi realm. The whooshes and impacts are an especially welcome addition to my library. I like layering then processing them further to get really beefy unique sounds . Good stuff Soundbits!


– Jon Lipman, MPSE

Fantastic sound library! Thanks so much for your work
