Welcome to A Sound Effect!

asbjoern andersenMy name is Asbjoern Andersen, and I’ve worked as a composer for many years.

I launched this site because I noticed that my colleagues in the sound community were releasing some truly incredible sound effect libraries on their own.

These audio pros are some of the best in the world when it comes to sound design and field recording – and their libraries are created with talent, passion and feature recordings you can’t get anywhere else.

But finding the sounds you were looking for was a monumental task, since the libraries were scattered across a myriad of individual websites.

With A Sound Effect, you can now search, preview, compare and get exactly the sounds you’re after – all in one place.

Happy exploring!

– Asbjoern
