Fireworks sfx

I'm currently working on a tight deadline feature. My first actually.
And there is a 15min VFX "new years eve - at 00:00" scene. So lots of fireworks explosions. I have some firework recordings in my library, but 15 minutes of The same gets boring real quick.
I'd love to take a Week and record some myself but deadline is in two weeks, so that leaves one Week editing before one Week dub.

I've read a bit in The "new sfx library thread" but didnt immidiately find any.

Any tips on some great firework libraries?

Preferably one library with different multiple bg explosions along with clean single ones for on-screen sync wise.

thanks Chris, just bear in mind that my library is recordings of individual fireworks - its not a big boom squillion dollar fireworks display....

A bit obscure but this just popped into my brain:

There's a free firework library from Pendle Poucher on his instrument website here:

Sound_Dust | Free !

Downside: it's a SoundFont, so you'd have to have something that could load it. It's not huge either but I would imagine that with fireworks, every little bit can help.

Thanks for all info guys!

We´ve ended up with Mikkel Nielsen - SonicSalute´s fireworks along with HISS and ROAR and The Recordist Fireworks Show.
Think I´m covered for this feature now!
