Pro Sound Effects Core 2 Complete: Pro Sound Effects® (PSE – CORE2 Complete) is a database of curated sound effects. The database contains over 800,000 sounds and more than 357,000 files.

Sound files are organized in more than 500 categories and include ambiences, urban and natural soundscapes, animals, vehicles, foley effects, sound design elements and much more. All sounds are royalty free. Access is via a web-based Pro Sound Effects Library Access Portal. The interface permits searching, browsing, and previewing. Users can create playlists or projects, and can download files and sounds.
