AudioMicro Expands Sound Effect Library

Los Angeles-based, which operates an online marketplace for royalty-free music and sound effects, said Tuesday morning that it has added another 55,000 sound effects in a licensing deal with The Hollywood Edge. AudioMicro said that the sound effects also include material from Soundelux. Both The Hollywood Edge and Soundelux are owned by CSS Studios. Financial details of the licensing agreement were not disclosed. AudioMicro is looking to establish a market for "stock audio", similar to the stock photography market, and offers both individual sound effects as well as subscription packages for the content on its market.
