Sound Ideas to offer Ultimate SFX Collection on Avastor hard drives
Sound Ideas, publisher of professional sound effects for broadcast and post production, is making its new Ultimate SFX Collection available on Avastor HDX800 triple interface hard drives.
The Ultimate SFX Collection offers the complete Sound Ideas sound effects library, which includes more than 600 CDs of audio (120,000 royalty-free sound effects) fully digitized in broadcast WAV file format and embedded with all relevant metadata. Both Mac and PC platforms are offered in a choice of formats: 16-bit/44.1kHz, 16-bit/48kHz or 24-bit/48kHz.
With this large amount of content available in one compilation, Sound Ideas required a storage medium that would be able to easily handle the collection while at the same time making it easy to transport. The Avastor HDX hard drive line has an internal auto-sensing AC power supply that can operate between 90V and 240V, thereby having worldwide compatibility. Every drive also has a cooling fan, robust and lockable foam-lined packaging, and is individually speed tested before shipping.
