I'm about to start editing a TV series that requires a laugh track. I'm not here to debate the ethics of laugh tracks, I have no interest in that. I'm looking for advice from anyone who's had to lay down laugh tracks. Is there a good library out there? I'm searching the web and not finding much of anything. I need a collection/library of laugh clips that are consistent with each other. Thanks for any help in advance.

I've looked into this in the past, but actually haven't ended up using it. Hollywood Laugh Tracks seemed to be one of the most promising solutions I found relative to quality and variety. Now they are also available thru iTunes: itunes.apple.com/us/artist/hollywood-lau...98255?ign-mpt=uo%3D4

Wow, that's a LOT of content and not much money. Thanks so much! Really nice quality stuff, all there together, great price.

I got it, put it all in an iTunes Playlist so I can get to it easily in FCPX. Now, I need to cull through and put what is pertinent to my TV show in its own Playlist. This is working out great. Thanks for the suggestion.

On final output I recommend exporting a separate version WITHOUT the laugh track. There may come a day when you regret adding it. Once it's been so stained it can't ever be bleached clean. (Needing a laugh track suggests the project needs better writers.)

As I originally stated, I'm not here to debate the morals or legitimacy of using laugh tracks, just find a much needed resource, which I did. The client is happy. Thread closed for me.
