5700   OFFBEAT RECORDS SOUND EFFECTS LIBRARY 

 

         Of all the human senses, hearing is the one most capable of creating images in the mind’s eye.  Sight is too accurate to allow the imagination to flourish-movies and still photos reflect the work of the eye perfectly, and the senses of smell, touch and taste are too personal.  But in reproducing accurately the sounds around us, the ear is given the opportunity to concentrate on those fleeting noises – so much sound in motion – which are so much a part of human life.  In creating this large and most accurate sound effects library, OFFBEAT is establishing a permanent record of the most significant – and sometimes insignificant – sounds of the world, as well as providing intellectual and emotional   stimulation to people of all kinds.  We have listed only a few groups for whom these records will provide both enjoyment and value. In particular, children will respond to the variety of sounds presented here, for in their innocence, pure sound has an enormous appeal to them, adding realism to their fantasies and helping to enrich the experience of learning. 

          These sounds were recorded under the most suitable conditions, with the finest equipment available, and were selected for their purity and clarity.
