    I only have half the sound effects I need. If you can help find the rest, I'll be good to go to the next step of my animating life.



    First, play the following:

    Super Mario Bros. Z (both the original and remastered series), Tank Attack, River Raider, and Miniclip's Commando series. As you play them, listen to the sounds; they all share the same "anime-style" sound effects. So I bet the farm they must've come from the same library. But I'm stumped on which library or libraries to search for. And since Alvin Earthworm has yet to reply back on his X account for two weeks now, I have to try my luck here.



    Next, half the libraries listed here https://soundeffects.fandom.com/wiki/Sound_Ideas_Canada_Ltd. (include that period after "Ltd" to get it to take you to that page) are not available here: https://soundideas.sourceaudio.com/albums

    So if you can find the remaining sites that are distributing the missing libraries from that fandom page, please do.



    Finally, after browsing my sound effects folder in "Details" view after downloading samples from Sound Effects Fandom, I began to notice clues: Anime, Cinesound, DePatie, DFE, Disney, Elektra Records, Famous Studios, FOX, Star Trek: Original TV Series, Joel Valentine, Hacienda, Hanna Barbera, Horta, Horta Hacienda, Alex Fresno, BBC, Bob Clampett, Harry Bluestone, Nickelodeon, Nelvana, New Warner Bros, NTWK, OMI, Pro Sound Effects, PSEL, Rocky and Bullwinkle, 20th Century Fox, Audio Effects Co., Rich Harrison, Mark Mangini, Richard L. Anderson, Skywalker, Warner Bros, Turner Entertainment, Unknown Sound Effects Library, and Valentino. These could be other sound effect providers like Hollywood Edge and Sound Ideas.

    And all the sound effect libraries listed above must come from a site like Source Audio as these types of sites allow me to listen to every sound file so I know what I'm dealing with.



    And I can tell you this: watch any episode of The Big Comfy Couch, Backyardigans, Dora The Explorer, Rayman PS1, Crisis Beat PS1, Chowder, Out Of Jimmy’s Head, The Suite Life, Foster’s Imaginary Friends, and Camp Lazlo. Then, listen to all the sounds in The Cartoon Trax 1. Do any of you recognize any of the sounds heard in that album? I certainly do! This is a tunnel vision moment that washed up upon me.

    P.S, bear in mind, it took me 7 years to realize these sound effects are sorted into libraries for different scenarios (cartoon, ambience, crashes, explosions, guns, etc). So I'm still learning about these sounds via trial and error.


    EDIT: 4 here: https://soundeffects.fandom.com/wiki/The_Hollywood_Edge are missing from Source Audio.

    BBC, Warner Bros and Lucasfilm have their own libs. Check archive dot ork for those epic "cracked pot" and Wilhelm screams. The rusty door creek is also a "classic". It's everywhere. Using sample libraries in Videogame- and TV production was common, because it's fast. Nintendo, Konami, Capcom used at least at one point in time Roland libs during PS/Saturn/N64-era. If I am not mistaken, the "Synth Mania" CD had some Mario64, Zelda64 and Silent Hill sounds and instruments(tDr. Hauzer on 3D0 uses sounds that appear later in Silent Hill, also they copied the menu 1:1. Maybe Konami gobbled up the dev MicroCabinand and they brought some old code and assets.)
    Anyway I digress, so check those ancient libs (Roland, Akai, Yamaha and E-Mu) out. I don't think they used E-Mu, but if you really want to know you can find out.
    And no, I did not play that Unity asset fipping trash you posted. Sorry :)

    I do animation and google sound fx because it's fasten than browsing Terrabytes of tiny samples and you probably find the very same fx like on those CDs on the web. Just my 2 cents.
    Some of them are on archive.org like BBC, Turner Media, Sound Ideas Lucasfilm, various Hanna-Barbera. like I have already posted before
    You won't get links here , because that's requesting warez. I am out of your hair now.
