Sound Ideas acquires Sounddogs.com

SoundDogs.com started its incredible story in August 1996 and by May of 1997, was the world’s first online commercial sound effects and production music library. Their high profile and well-respected product line includes the Soundstorm library, a seven-time nominee and winner of an Academy Award for Best Sound Editing.

Sound Ideas has a long history of collaboration with SoundDogs.com and its owner Rob Nokes. To quote Brian Nimens, the owner of Sound Ideas, “Rob is a leader in the industry. His reputation as a sound recorder, designer and editor is unmatched; and the skill with which he has developed and grown the Sounddogs.com brand and site is remarkable. I have known Rob for decades and I am thrilled that Sound Ideas will be able to move forward with the Sounddogs.com name.”

“Brian was among the first sound effects producers to provide content to the Sounddogs.com site and he is still a large contributor. Our friendship goes back longer than either of us might like to admit, but it gives me peace of mind to know that the Sounddogs.com site and brand will continue as a force under his direction”, said Rob Nokes.

The Sounddogs.com site offers over 1 million sounds for immediate purchase, license and download and it is the intention of Sound Ideas to not only maintain but grow its online presence.

About SoundDogs.com:

Just 2 years after Amazon was launched as a book seller and before iTunes took its first steps, the idea to build an online sound storefront was born; and on May 1st, 1997 the Sounddogs.com site came to life. Over the years, Sounddogs.com acquired the sound library assets and trademarks of Todd-AO / Soundelux and continued with its own recording projects, and built distribution partnerships with most major sound libraries around the world. www.sounddogs.com
