Pro Sound Effects Releases Enhanced Hybrid Library + Expansion Program for Freelance Sound Designers

100 Hybrid Library Units Available for Freelance Sound Designers through December 31, 2014.

Attention freelancers! The Pro Sound Effects® team is proud to announce the release of the enhanced Hybrid Library and new Expansion Program for freelance sound designers and independent media creators worldwide.

Since 2012, Pro Sound Effects has supported freelancers by providing access to a big studio library at an affordable price. The Hybrid Library has always been met with amazing reception.

Now through December 31st, we are making 100 Hybrid Library units available to sound designers who apply and qualify for freelancer pricing.

In addition, all Hybrid Library owners gain access to the Expansion Program, which ensures the Hybrid Library is continually updated, as well as community benefits including a LinkedIn Group and freelancer support.

“We really stepped up our features this year,” says Douglas Price, Founder & President of Pro Sound Effects. “Our goal is to continually improve our Hybrid Program so it lives up to its reputation as both the ‘Robin Hood of Sound Libraries’ and ‘the Sound Designers Secret Weapon.’”
