The BBC effects library has long been regarded as the standard library, and we are pleased to be able to offer the commercially released section on compact disc. Everything from cars to aeroplanes, ships to trains. Sounds domestic, urban, rural and international. Over 90% of the effects are recorded direct to digital stereo – many of them using binaural techniques. The rest have been transferred from analogue to digital. Each compact disc is accompanied by a booklet with a comprehensive index for the instant identification of effects.
The BBC Conditions of Sale allow virtually unlimited use of the discs in commercial, audio, video and film productions in perpetuity, and the subsequent broadcast, sale, hire and public exhibition of productions incorporating these effects without further charge.
