A Double Celebration – Revealing Sound 100,000 and Ten Years of Soundly

Ten years ago, we were just a speck on the horizon in the world of sound design. Soundly was born out of our need for a tool to streamline our work as sound designers. As others began to take notice, our humble project gradually evolved into a complete SFX platform used worldwide.

Today marks not just a milestone but a monumental achievement for Soundly and the Pro Library: our 100,000th sound! Captured in the epic mountains of Norway, this sound goes beyond mere numbers. It symbolizes the countless hours of dedication to discovering and producing a wide array of distinctive, high-quality sounds.

Watch our video, where the mystery of the 100,000th sound is revealed.

Ten years whooshed by, powered by our passion for sound design. Your support has been invaluable to us, and we couldn’t have reached this milestone without you.

We can’t wait to show you our plans for the future – some are mere specks on the horizon, and some are soaring towards you at sonic speeds!

Here’s to another ten years! 🥳
