I've been using the Music Bakery ( line of CDs for ten years. They come in full-length, and pre-cut mixes for :60, :30, and :10 TV spots.

Recently, I've also been hearing good things from SmartSound's ( line of music.

And while I haven't heard it, I know that Digital Juice put out a series of music CDs called BackTraxx ( It's worth checking out.

Hope this helps!

Sonic Foundry also has 1001 sound effects for sale for $15. I bought it, and it's pretty decent.

What exactly does "pretty decent" mean? You don't sound too excited about it. :)

Dose anyone have any other sources for sound effects, or sets you can buy for a descent price? I find some of the hardest things to find are ambient noise and good sounding foot steps.

OK I just bought three CD'd from Sound Dogs and I also punched in Royalty Free Music on Ebay's search and came up with this.

>>Ebay Link for Royalty Free Music<< (

Sound Dogs has a pretty nice selection that you can sample right off the site. I just recieved an email letting me know I can download my CD's (although...those llinks aren't working at the moment) :hmm:

I am going to give the vendors on Ebay a shot and place a bid. I spent $200 on SoundDogs and will get 3 CD'd, some of those offeres on Ebay have 6 CD's for $20 with $8 SH. Only one way to find out :thumbsup:
