“You guys are like my secret weapon right now as a music producer. I used BOOM all over Drake’s 'VIEWS' album and also allll over Drake’s live show."

“I am working in the audio post of German movies and TV primetime productions for about 20 years. Over the last years, an independent sound library scene has grown and BOOM Library is one of the most outstanding producers.
What makes them outstanding is their broad range of libraries and the absolutely great quality of their products.
I have several libraries in my arsenal and it’s safe to say that it’s hard to find a recent project where BOOM Library sound FX were not included.”
Ivan Torrent / Composer • Re-Recording Mixer
"I must say that this is a really impressive release. I've been working with all your stuff in almost all my works in trailer and commercial music, but... wow... this is a step forward in my opinion. It sounds so clean, modern and punchy that I'm eager to have more stuff like this! lol :)
You're always my first choice to add punch and epicness to my music. So, please make more Cinematic Trailer volumes - There are never enough.”
CRAIG KYLLONEN / SOUND EDITOR • ACTOR • VISUAL EFFECTS
American Gangster, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Bone Tomahawk, Knight and Day etc.
“I was hired as a Supervising Sound Editor on a Horror Western titled Bone Tomahawk. I needed some updating to my own library of sounds and was familiar with the quality products that BOOM offers. I loaded up with Prairies, Historical Firearms, Gun Handling, and of course, Horses, and I was more than set. The Historical Firearms were especially fantastic. The depth of the recordings coupled with the ability to tweak the original sounds with the Construction Kit, gave me so many options for authentic, turn of the 20th Century SFX. BOOM nailed it.”
Richard Aitken / Music Mixer • Producer
Far Cry 2, Evel Kneival, Clumsy Ninja, Dream Fall Chapters etc.
“I use BOOM Libraries in my projects almost every day. The Construction Kit Sounds are just perfect for my own creative sound design - the range is so variegated. I am more than happy with the ones I´ve purchased so far and the BOOM Library online store is my very first address when searching for new sounds. The sound files come with very detailed and thoughtful metadata tags which makes finding the right sound and working with it incomparably fast. For time-critical projects, it is a blessing to work with their pre-designed sounds where almost every shot is a bulls-eye. All in all I can say the products are excellent and the price is unbeatable and hats off to the great customer support.”
ZEDD / Fabulous Producer • DJ
Grammy-Winner / Producer for Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez etc.
“BOOM Library SFX are some of the best sounding samples there are! I have used both “Designed” and “Construction Kit” samples on my album “True Colors" and they have become an invaluable tool in my writing and producing process.”
Shannon Mills / Supervising Sound Editor • Sound Designer
Avatar, Titanic, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Finding Nemo, Cars, etc.
“When I can’t record sounds myself, BOOM is the next best thing! Right before I began my work on Thor: The Dark World, they released MEDIEVAL WEAPONS, perfect timing! The sounds were perfect for the opening battle scene and saved me much time preparing for the temp mix. Excellent quality, and I appreciate the option of designed or construction kit, as I can build my own sounds or use versions prebuilt, extremely valuable! Thanks BOOM, and keep up the good work!"
David Barbee / Sound Designer
Star Trek, Mad Men, The Sopranos, The Shield, Navy CIS, The Newsroom etc.
“BOOM Library SFX have quickly become an integral part of my SFX library, I have used them in a wide variety of projects. TRAINS is a particular favorite, especially for the surround recordings. SCI-FI, CINEMATIC TRAILERS and MAGIC are fantastic, from the quick and easy answers in the "Designed" section to the many elements in the "Construction Kit" I use to blend together for something new. For projects that require a more basic approach, EVERYDAY CARS, CLOSE COMBAT, GUNS, DOGS and HORSES are all outstanding."
Clark Crawford / Sound Designer
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Machete Kills, Predators, etc.
“When budgets or timelines restrict me from recording my own material, BOOM libraries have become my go-to for useful source material. The Construction Kits are incredibly well recorded and respond well to all kinds of processing. As such, they’ve proven invaluable for building unique, complex sounds in virtually every film or game that I have worked on in the past few years. Please keep up the excellent, inspiring work!”
Jeff Broadbent / Composer
Games: Tom Clancy's EndWar Online, PlanetSide 2, Transformers 2 - Dark Side Of The Moon
“As always, congrats on the great sfx libraries created by Boom! I recently purchased your sci-fi bundle for a new project, it sounds great. Honestly, I think your sound design company is one of the best (if not the best) place to obtain sound effects - the quality and creativity is always top notch.”
Bryan Jerden / Sound Designer
Trailer: The Wolverine, Life Of Pi, Prometheus, The Dark Knight Rises, etc.
"I have been using Boom Library Sounds in many of the trailers I work on. The designed collections really stand up but I also very much like using the construction kits as great sounding source for creating my own designs. Thanks for the great work guys!"
Adam Stiles / Sound Designer / VFX Artist
Trailer: The Dark Knight, Gamer, Punisher,
“An excellent, excellent collection. With the Cinematic Metal library, you could almost do any high end trailer with those alone. I'm so happy there's a company like you guys out there. The need for these type of sounds are monumental. Especially for us at Riot Games, we need more, and more.”
Scott Morton / Audio Designer at BioWare
Titan Quest, Darksiders
"Excellent sounds! I like the fact that you guys left the full decays on most of the sounds ... a lot of them have really interesting tails that I found myself thinking "hey, I'd love to just chop the tails off of some of these and use them!". The recordings are all really crisp and clear, and full-range. The metadata organization is straightforward and looks great. I like the fact that there are pre-pitched samples; it saves time and it's awesome that you did them at 192 KHz to preserve quality. This material is definitely inspiring…"
Charles Maynes / Sound Designer
A-Team, The Pacific, Planet Terror, Spider-Man,
Flags of Our Fathers
"Sounds great.... they were all really good - very nice stuff - was all that created with just the source files?"
Zachary Quarles / Audio Director at "id Software"

Dan McRae/ Digital Artist
Gravity, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, The Dark Knight, Clash of the Titans, White House Down, Total Recall, James Bond - Quantum Of Solace, V For Vendetta, etc.
"The BOOM sample libraries are the best in the business and without them I could never achieve such quality on a shoestring budget."
David Farmer / Sound Designer
Lord of the rings, Hulk, King Kong, Bioshock 2, Dead Space, God of War
“This is a great set of recordings of some of the most essential animals used in making creature sounds. I imagine I'll be using these quite a bit. Nicely done!
The "Creatures" library has lots of good wet close proximity sounds that are often difficult to get from real animal recordings. I typically have to record myself to get those, so this is a welcome addition to my library. Nice work and nice price!"
Jordan Wilby / Sound Designer
Desperate Housewives, Dexter, The Vampire Diaries, Nip/Tuck, Criminal Minds, The Closer
“Thanx for the buybuyBoom stuff - am using the creatures in my CW show Vampire Diaries. Looking forward to working with you in the future."
Jeremy Robins / Audio Director Vigil Games
Darksiders, Warhammer 40k - Dark Millenium
"You can never have too many metal impact SFX at your disposal, and this library has them in spades. Moreover, they are recorded and offered at far higher sample rates than I’ve found in any other library. These assets really lend themselves to additional sound design and I’ve found them incredible useful in both realistic and abstract applications."
Charles Maynes / Sound Designer
Jackie Brown, Starship Troopers, Total Recall, Battleship, Gettysburg, U-571, Fast & Furious, Predators, The A-Team, The Pacific, Planet Terror, Grindhouse, Letters from Iwo Jima, Flags of our Fathers, Fantastic Four, etc...
“BOOM is doing some absolutely world class sound libraries which have been an invaluable resource for my sound design work - I am absolutely loving all their quite remarkable efforts in expanding the vocabulary of sound excellence."
