Mark Mangini"Richard and I recorded these sounds with the focus on sound as a storytelling aspect of the cinematic experience. Often captured ‘acoustically’ in real world spaces, these sounds lay in to edit sessions with minimal mix work because they were intended to enhance narrative media.” Mark Mangini

Sound artists need an extensive and diverse collection of human sounds to cover all ages and locations. With over 4,000 sounds (57GB), Odyssey Humans covers your needs for any project, including categories that are most-needed and difficult to record — from flavorful walla and massive crowds to radio announcements, baby coos, laughter, and adult vocalizations of all sorts.
