Sonify the beasts and critters of your wildest dreams with The Odyssey Collection: Creatures. Add life and energy to any project with characterful animal recordings from over 100 different animals – ranging from rare and exotic to common and domesticated – plus designed beasts and mythical beings.

Create realistic scenes and otherworldly soundscapes with animal sounds from around the globe, including leopard growls, lion roars, horse whinnies, rhinoceros bellows, bird calls, monkey vocals, dog barks, insect swarms and more. This library features thorough coverage of more common creatures like birds, dogs, horses and insects – as well as many obscure animals.

Developed in exclusive collaboration with Academy Award®-winners Mark Mangini & Richard L. Anderson, Odyssey Creatures delivers a huge variety of natural, high-quality, one-of-a-kind animal recordings and masterfully designed creature sounds – so you can stay creative and deliver your best sound.

“Richard and I always knew that anytime we recorded a real living creature, even something as mundane as a cow, it would eventually turn into a terrifying beast for our next horror or fantasy film. So we recorded anything that spoke or whinnied or cackled or groaned.”Mark Mangini (Blade Runner 2049, Mad Max: Fury Road)

Each sound file is embedded with rich metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with fast, pinpoint search. Advanced metadata fields ensure compatibility across any database search platform such as SoundQ, Soundminer, BaseHead, Soundly, Netmix, Workspace (Pro Tools), Find Tool (Media Composer), Media Bay (Nuendo), Reaper, Adobe Premiere, and beyond.

Odyssey Creatures is included in Odyssey Complete. Aside from that, there is no overlap between Odyssey Creatures and other smaller Odyssey libraries, i.e. Odyssey Expanded or Odyssey Essentials. Explore The Odyssey Collection here.

It goes without saying for all PSE libraries, but… no animals were harmed in the making of this library!
