Sound On Sound reviews Pro Sound Effects' The Odyssey Collection: Essentials and gives it a 5-star rating.
"There is no denying that The Odyssey Collection: Essentials is a niche product, but for those who have ever thought to explore sound design it may be the best starting point that I've seen. Though it doesn't have the scale of some other larger libraries, even Pro Sound Effects' Hybrid or Master libraries, it is extremely well curated. It focuses on sounds that are most useful and necessary, saving time on endlessly auditioning unnecessary samples. More notably, these sounds mark the careers of two people who helped set the benchmark for what modern film sound is, so the quality is undeniable. Mangini and Anderson see The Odyssey Collection as their sonic legacy, giving their experience to future generations of sound designers and editors. Those who use sound effects regularly will undoubtedly benefit from this legacy."
