“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!"
Clark Crawford / Sound Designer

“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!”

“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…"
Erik Foreman / Freelance Sound Designer
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
"CINEMATIC METAL sounds great! I have found many sounds that are very useful, all clean and well recorded with long tails, great variety all wrapped up in great meta data info."

"Sounds great.... they were all really good - very nice stuff - was all that created with just the source files?"

"Wonderful sounding libraries from BOOM Library. Excellent, excellent work!"

“The Creatures library is a job well done. It has come in very handy and I have used it quite a bit already in the few weeks I have had it for. It was great on beefing up a mythical wolf creature in an animated series I did and I am sure it will be used a lot in upcoming episodes. Great work. Looking forward to the next library releases as both the "Cinematic Metal" and "Creatures" libraries have been really useful.”
Jonathan Grossman/ Sound Designer
TV-Series: Spiderman, Justice League, Digimon Fusion
"Thank you for these sounds! They are truly excellent. I use your Sci-Fi FX in tons of promos I do for Saban for over 20 animated kids television shows (SpiderMan, Justice League, Digimon Fusion, B-Daman, Zexal). Very often the files I get from the clips are not split audio and I have to re-create the FX myself. Usually, the stuff I create using BOOM FX adds that certain something to the original FX. Kudos to you guys!"

"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

“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

“Thanx for the buybuyBoom stuff - am using the creatures in my CW show Vampire Diaries. Looking forward to working with you in the future."

"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."
Grant Kirkhope / Audio Director of "Big Huge Games"
Age of Empire III - the Asian Dynasties
"The libraries we’ve bought from you so far are really excellent, you did a great job with them and we’ve already used them on our current project: "Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning""
