TORONTO — Sound Ideas (www.sound-ideas.com), one of the largest publishers of professional sound effects, has acquired the Frank Serafine Sound Effects Collection. Frank Serafine (pictured) is an award-winning Hollywood sound designer who is credited with the development of many new digital audio techniques. His work has been heard in Hollywood blockbusters such as Star Trek, Lawnmower Man, The Hunt for Red October and
Virtuosity. He is also one of the first major sound designers to lend his name to commercial SFX collections.
Over the years, Serafine has been both a contributor to and a client of Sound Ideas. “If I can’t find the effect I am looking for in my own high-quality collection, I go to Sound Ideas because I know they will have what I need,” says the sound designer.
“Sound Ideas is proud to add the 12 sound effect libraries and more than 12,000 sound effects produced by Frank Serafine and his innovative team of sound designers and engineers to our official lineup,” says Sound Ideas owner, Brian Nimens. Sound Ideas has been in business since 1978 and has published more than 1,000 CDs. The company is home to nearly half a million sound effects.
