Sounddevs.com gets a facelift
The social network for audio professionals, www.sounddevs.com has just had a facelift. The popular service connects pros working within the audio industries for networking, sharing ideas, collaborations and jobs, showcasing work and projects and much more.
Their member base stretches from sound designers and Foley artists right through to sound engineers, dubbing mixers, music composers and anyone else working with sound.
Recently they launched the marketplace, an area for members to sell their sound effects libraries and services. They’ve just opened this up to those of you who want to sell equipment (old and new), services, or those looking for a career in the industry via the ‘Courses and Tutoring’ categories.
The update also includes a fresh look, faster performance and generally more modern interface. With thousands of professionals active on sounddevs.com the resource is growing nicely and more and more people are fining work, collaborating on projects, sharing their latest project, studio or sound collection.
Users can also now not only private message each other for one-to-one conversations, but voice and video chat, ideal for collaborations, speaking to potential employers and much much more.
“Sounddevs.com was launched after we realised there wasn’t a dedicated space for those of us working in the sound industries to communicate. At the time we wanted to recruit sound designers to join our website, spread the message about what we were doing and also stay in touch with industry developments.”
With a familiar social network interface, sounddevs is much like a cross between Facebook and Twitter, employing what they felt were the most useful features of both. For example, sounddevs has a follow system rather than friends. But they also feature pages and groups for dedicated chats and communicating around specific subjects without clogging up peoples timelines.
So whether you’re a sound designer or sound engineer, go to www.sounddevs.com to join free.
