It's an excellent step up to a serious, professional sound library, or a great way for owners of some of our older collections to get the complete Mix package in a digital format.

Sound Ideas has released a new addition to its popular MegaMix collection of production music tracks. The MegaMix Extension offers the complete contents of two new Mix libraries - Mix XII and Mix XIII - in easy-to-use broadcast wav format.
The MegaMix and MegaMix Extension combination now pack all content of the company's Mix libraries onto 23 DVDs. "We selected the broadcast wav format for these sound files because we wanted to make the tracks easy to use from any digital workstation," said company president Brian Nimens. The tracks are fully embedded with metadata and can be quickly organized and searched with the company's own free MetaDigger download or any asset management software, he added.
The product specifications show that the full MegaMix collection now includes:
- 8,700 royalty-free music tracks
- 2,850 production elements
- 1,500 sound effects
All files are fully digital at 16 bit 44.1 kHz.
The company's Web site offers full details for both the original MegaMix collection and its new Extension update. Included are full track listings in Microsoft Excel format, an audio demo for each package in Flash format, and detailed summaries which show the variety of music tracks, production elements, and sound effects available.
More than 20 musical genres are represented, including classical, corporate, jazz, new age, sports, and easy listening. Production element categories include swipes, sweepers, stingers, lasers and zips, bumpers, and segues, and the selection of sound effects is comprehensive. "This collection really offers production elements and sound effects to fit just about any situation a sound engineer might face," commented Nimens. "It's an excellent step up to a serious, professional sound library, or a great way for owners of some of our older collections to get the complete Mix package in a digital format."
Founded in 1978, Toronto-based Sound Ideas was the first company to release sound effects libraries on compact disc, and the first to release the sound effects library of a major motion picture studio. The company continues to innovate new ways to provide high-quality sound files to the audio professionals who rely on them.
