13 new sound libraries Asbjoern Andersen

This week on A Sound Effect, we've got your sound design needs covered with both go-to and uncommon sources!

For your action scenes, we have a menacing bandit - and why not give him a high-powered laser gun or a sword to bring the clash of steel to life?

Or if you're feeling futuristic, explore the vintage tones of an analog sci-fi interface, unleash the mechanical might of a powerful robot, or transport your character in space-age vehicles.

For more general sounds, we also have environmental recordings of aquatic effects and the chilling events of ice cracking and breaking.

And looking for unique details? Check out sounds of t-shirts and torn fabric, the delightful (or dreadful?) sounds of next-door renovations, as well as a piercing Aztec death whistle and clinking gold coins. Happy listening!

  • DopeSick blends organic cinematic, sci-fi and modern electronic sound design for the creation of percussive impacts and rhythmic sonic cues for film scores, hi energy movie trailers, IDM, Futuristic Hip-Hop and different forms of electronic music that require sophisticated sound design at its best.

    The library features a vast array of timbres with a high degree of playability and musicality: raw hits, heavy alien impacts, cinematic/electronic hits, stingers and sequences, one-shots tones, trailer kits and more.

  • For Old Broken Piano we have recorded an old piano manufactured in the 1940s by the brothers Manegold. It has not been maintained and tuned for decades, giving it a unique, dark and nostalgic sound character.
    The instrument was recorded with a Sennheiser MKH 8040 Stereo Pair connected to a Sound Devices 702T.

    MKH 8040 are microphones with extended frequency response up to 50.000 Hz, which is great if you want to further process, re-pitch or stretch audio files.

    Rather unconventional approaches were used to „play“ the piano: Not a single key was touched! It was performed using a violin bow, various mallets and sticks, kitchen utensils, sticky tape and bare hands. The casing of the piano was partly taken apart to get direct access to the strings and the interior components of the instrument.

    A wide array of interesting sounds have been achieved by bowing, scraping or hitting single and multiple strings or parts of the wood body. For longer resonances, the sustain pedal was pressed down during almost all recordings.

    Old Broken Piano is a collabration between SampleTraxx and german sound designer Sebastian Emling.

    This library is the ideal companion for any professional sound designer, trailer or film composer.
