Take a look back with Team PSE.
Nothing says “Happy New Year” like a little nostalgia. 2022 was one for the books. We saw our PSE team grow, launched exciting new sound effects libraries and software features, and got a chance to help thousands of creators dive deeper into their passion for sonic exploration.
Before we step into 2023, let’s take a look back and show you what PSE was up to this year…
Web App Launch
The beta version of our web app is live at app.prosoundeffects.com – this is the new place to buy individual sounds from the entire PSE Library. This is the first step toward a unified Pro Sound Effects platform.
Feedback is welcome! Try it out and let us know what you think via the Feedback form in the top right corner. Read more here.
New Library Releases
We released 23 exclusive sound effects libraries this year featuring inspiring new sounds in hundreds of categories.
Check out some of the new releases from 2022:
This year we released the new version of SoundQ – with several powerful new features including unlimited access to a curated collection of world-class sound effects and premium music tracks.
