NAB Show 2016 Wrap-Up


Team PSE has returned from a week in Las Vegas attending Avid Connect and exhibiting at the NAB Show



With our infamous PSE shades once again flooding the show floors, it was amazing to meet so many new media creators, put faces to familiar names, connect with partners and clients, and reunite with old acquaintances.

Avid Connect

Our first stop was the Wynn Las Vegas from April 16-17 to attend Avid Connect 2016 - an annual industry-shaping event featuring educational and inspirational sessions dedicated to workflows, pressing challenges and customer insights.

PSE's Licensing Manager, Jeremy Siegel, joined featured speaker Eric Kuehnl (Assistant Director, Foothill College) for the Careers in Audio for Gaming session within the Get your career started track. PSE operations aside, Avid announced NEXIS - exciting stuff!

NAB Show

Then from April 18-21 we hit the Las Vegas Convention Center to exhibit at NAB 2016. With 103,000 attendees from 166 countries and 1,700+ exhibitors at this year's show, NAB is the world's largest annual convention covering filmed entertainment and the development, management and delivery of content across all mediums.

Pro Sound Effects has been at NAB in some form or another for over 10 years. This year we were holding it down in the South Lower Hall at booth SL8330. Thanks to all who stopped by to say hello, demo our sound libraries, and enter our giveaway! Here are some highlights from the show:

Our mission is to develop the most useful libraries that inspire people to take their sound to the next level. So we were excited to offer our NAB visitors a free download of PSE Micro - an introduction to PSE general sound effects libraries.

With 290 sounds (one sound per category), PSE Micro was created to highlight the quality, depth, and breadth of our general libraries. It's the perfect starting point for sound designers and editors in need of a diverse sonic palette. Redeem your code or learn more at

Hybrid Library + iZotope RX Giveaway


Congratulations to the winner of our NAB raffle, Angela Kwan! Over 100 attendees entered to win a PSE Hybrid Sound Effects Library (our best value, most reviewed general library) bundled with iZotope RX 5 (award-winning audio repair and noise reduction software).

With many credits already to her name, we're sure Angela will use these new tools to take her sound to the next level!
