FX Rentals and Sonomic offer on-line samples library

FX Rentals and Sonomic are to work together to offer UK and European rental clients 24-hour, unlimited-access passes to the largest online library of samples and sound FX.
The Sonomic site at has over 200,000 royalty-free sound FX and samples, all searchable by category and/or keyword. All sounds can be previewed as compressed audio streams and instantly downloaded as professional-quality, full resolution native files.
Frank Oglethorpe, Technical director of FX Group, said: “Their stand at AES caught my eye and the product my imagination. Our clients often need to hire sound FX CD’s from us. First they have to wait for the CDs to be delivered, and then contend with the time-consuming process of finding the right sounds on these CDs. Often they can’t even find what they want. With Sonomic I can give them a log-in code for 24 hours and they can get instant access to any sound they need, all for £29.95. This is better, cheaper and much faster than the traditional hire route.”
Adam Strauss, CEO of Sonomic, added: “FX Group have a well-deserved reputation as the rental experts of choice for UK and European audio professionals. After establishing ourselves in the States over the last year, the next step for Sonomic is to expand internationally. We’re thrilled to have a partner of FX Group’s calibre to help us take this step.”
In addition to instant online access to over 200,000 sounds, Sonomic and FX also offer the Total Library. The Sonomic Sound Team digitises, categorizes and indexes a studio’s entire CD collection onto an ultra-powerful server. The studio’s old-fashioned CD library is transformed into a fast, efficient digital resource – searchable from any networked workstation using the same pinpoint search engine and customized database that run the Sonomic Online Library.
The Sonomic Total Library can even be accessed offsite using any internet-connected computer.
Ensuring that Sonomic has the widest range of fresh sounds for all production needs. Sonomic’s sound providers include Sound Ideas, Zero-G, Valentino, Q Up Arts, Sampleheads, Clack Sound Studios, Numerical Sound, CA Sound, Titus, Universal Sound Bank, and Doug Beck Music, among others.
The company’s constantly growing library currently has over 200,000 sounds, and is available 24/7 from any Internet connected computer.
