  1. There is a possibility to buy packs, and the free packs ( require you to have a subscription.

    Let that sink, you actually need a 15$/mo subscription to get access to, which you already can, and to get the possibility to buy packs. Because you can’t add libraries when you don’t pay. So you basically get nothing you don’t already have for that subscription beside some cloud storage for your effects. Which you can get for free (Google Drive, Dropbox, Onedrive, etc.)

    So why is this a good idea?

  2. not good…to access the database you have to pay…not good guys, u should have think twice about it…even if the interface looks good

  3. Hi Rivalo! I think you might have misunderstood Soundly, or we’ve done a poor job of explaining it 🙂
    In the pro version, besides all the features In the software, you get access to a big sound library we have made specifically for Soundly, That’s what your paying for. As a bonus you also get access to libraries from the store and a lot of other features, and a great librarian for your local sounds.
