At NAB 2011, Sound Ideas, based in Toronto, Canada, announced the release of its new General HD Sound Effects Library. The new collection has more than 25,000 sounds, all originally recorded at 24-bit/96 kHz.

The General HD is published on hard drive as Broadcast WAV files. Each file contains complete metadata to allow accurate searches with popular content management software, and each hard drive contains the original 24-bit/96kHz files as well as copies of the complete collection in 24-bit/48 kHz, 16-bit/48 kHz, and 16-bit/44.1 kHz for maximum flexibility.

Sound Ideas states that all of the content in the General HD is newly recorded and never before published. The company says that its recordists and audio engineers spent many months recording, mastering and documenting this new material and countless hours both on the road doing special location recordings, and in the studio recording props and voices.
