SFX library recommendations & advice

Hey everyone,

I am after some advice regarding SFX libraries, and in essence trying to narrow down whether the problem is the libraries I own... or me and my use of them. I own a bunch of old staples like the BBC collection, and stuff by Digieffects and Sound Ideas. With exception of perhaps the Foley effects, I find a lot of it sounds a little old and dated. Is it just me? Or is it simply the age of the SFX that I'm using?

If it's the latter, what would be some good modern sounding libraries to check out in the $1000-$2000 range?

You don't say what you're using the sfx for.

If you're building effects tracks for a film, any recording you use will have to be tweaked to become part of the characters' world.

It's the libraries.
The BBC stuff in particular sounds very dated. As do some of the generic Sound Ideas libraries.
