This comprehensive bundle totalizes 8771 files, more than 2850 unique sounds, recorded by 20 actors through more than 40 various actions and emotions. These sounds are meant to be as ubiquitous as possible, with no speech or actual wordings (only interjections and grunts).

Each of the 8771 files included are thoroughly edited, named and metatagged, making them easy to retrieve and ready to use! The meticulous categorization of the emotions follows the work of the professor/psychologist Robert Plutchik
