Announcing The Odyssey Collection: Essentials by Mark Mangini & Richard L. Anderson

Available now – exclusive sound library curated from the life's work of two Academy Award®-winners encompassing over 36 years of feature film sound.

We are proud to announce The Odyssey Collection: Essentials - the first exclusive sound effects library from our partnership with award-winning sound editors Mark Mangini & Richard L. Anderson.

Odyssey Essentials is a general library featuring over 16,000 sound effects curated from Mangini and Anderson’s private collection of recordings. These sounds were crafted daily and painstakingly over decades-long careers working on blockbuster films like Edward Scissorhands, The Fifth Element, Aladdin, The Green Mile, and Anchorman.

Richard L. Anderson & Mark Mangini
Unlike most general sound effects libraries, all sounds in Odyssey Essentials were created to fulfill specific needs and challenges for over 250 feature films - all expertly captured with the resources of a Hollywood budget and commitment to sonic excellence.

We have carefully selected over 16,000 raw sounds from the life’s work of Mangini and Anderson - including most-needed categories like Ambiences, Foley, and Vehicles - all completely remastered, organized, cataloged, and ready to be put to use.

Strengthen the foundation of your sound library with this indispensable asset created and used daily by two of Hollywood’s finest sound editing luminaries.

“Odyssey represents 30 years of passionate pursuit of something I love to do, for the sake of doing it. We recorded because we had to, not because we got paid to - the movie needed it and we did what was necessary. This library has been instrumental to our own success, and now the sounds can live on in the hands of the next generation of filmmakers and sound designers.” - Mark Mangini
