Metamorphosis is a huge collection of recorded source, synthesized material and hybrid sounds. The library was created to cover a wide range of themes, with rich textures, aggressive impacts and a large selection of pass bys, bass drops, pyrotechnics and many more types of material.
All of the Recorded Section was captured at 384KHz with microphones capable of recording up to 200KHz among with more conventional mics. The resulting assets are sounds that can be stretched to new extremes for greater sound design opportunities.
In many cases I took the liberty to slow down the assets while editing the sounds to deliver what I thought was the most useful version of a given recording though in most cases I have also included other takes at the original 384KHz sample rate to get the best of both worlds.
All of the Synthesized Content was created in Serum while the Hybrid Section was created by manipulating the Recorded and Synthesized sounds.
Techniques such as morphing were used to blur the lines in between the nature of the two sources, making for ambiguous yet extremely versatile material that can be employed on both realistic and abstract designs.
Bonus: Two extra libraries included for free:
This library also includes two additional releases from Mattia Cellotto - for free: Crunch Mode delivers 230 crunchy sounds made with a variety of vegetables, fresh bread, pizza crust and a selection of frozen goods. The Borax Experiment gets you 158 squishy, gory, slimy and gooey sounds.
Ancient Armour and Weapons is the result of months of recording, editing and arranging historic prop foley and combat sounds. Recorded at a dedicated foley stage in London, UK with a wealth of experience in crafting sound for feature film, TV and video games.
The library has been designed to give sound editors and media creators some of the core audio elements needed to create epic sword fights, brutal melee conflicts and more; whilst proving multiple content options for editors to use either compiled sounds or original recordings from a choice of microphones. In addition to the search capabilities of the sound selection, care has been taken to arrange the recordings into a sequenced order. Multiple versions of each sound have been recorded in line so this content can be combined and layered easily.
Background foley for mass groups has been provided with a selection of layers. These tracks can be panned to create 2.0, 5.1, 7.1 and up to 7.1.4 mixes.
Content Groups Included:
Blood, gore, swords, metal shields, wood shields, spear, axe, arrows, historic armour impacts, whoosh, body fall wearing period dress, mass group foley, prop impacts, metal scrapes and more.
Cyberpunk Sci-Fi is a collection of UI, voice, ambience, atmospheric and futuristic craft sounds that could be ideal to bring your dystopian project to life. Many of the sounds are open to interpretation, UI and vehicle sounds could be swapped around to your liking; this is the future after all.
Exosuit contains a large number of armored sound FX ready to use. Inside this turbocharged bio-suit you will find an arsenal of mechanized pieces of equipment noises and mechanical sequences.
Also included are sampled organic sounds, metallic impacts, chain sounds, pneumatic and hissing air sounds, whooshes, explosions, electric arcs and surges and diverse ranges of alien weapons (grenade launcher, a variant of the ARC Gun and missiles). All files are named and sorted thematically.
8-Bit Retro sound library is a collection of retro-sounding beeps, bleeps, loops, and jingles, that all sound like they came straight out of those legendary arcade video games and the time when Nintendo, C64 and Atari ruled The Earth!
Perfect for games, cartoons, movies, and other projects involving retro game themes, you can use these 8-bit sound effects as they are, or explore vast new sound possibilities by playing around with them, combining, looping, and layering them. If you need a fresh and versatile collection of retro-sounding 8-bit sound effects for your production that will instantly throw your audience back to the 80’s era and the time of classic arcade games and consoles, 8-Bit Retro sound library is a must-have!
8-Bit Retro sound library contains 672 sound effects (116MB) in 16 Bit / 44.1 kHz Stereo WAV format, embedded with metadata to speed up your workflow, and separated into three categories: 1.Loops 2.Jingles 3.Various
SMOOTH is a collection of 140 24-bit/48khz wave sound effects.
I’ts delicate, soft, deep, eerie, cinematic. Its sounds are crafted for slow motion shots, abstract film sequences, motion design shots and mysterious, not aggressive, evocative and ethereal projects.
All sounds are organized into 8 categories:
Ethereal Whooshes Swells and Risers
Droplets and Splashes
Atmospheres and Drones
Shine and Bright
They are total wet and 100% reverbered, designed with a “light touch”, definitely the opposite of big distorted and punchy sounds.
Synthetic Drones is the beginning of a new, affordable series aimed at delivering high quality cinematic soundscapes, with variety and flexibility in mind to induce dread and discomfort onto your audiovisual ventures.
Synthetic Drones was achieved by running a multitude of analog synthesizers through complex effects chains, resulting in resonant, cold, mechanical ambiences where its source remains abstract and mysterious.
Each audio file contains several variations of the same synthesizer and effects chain, ranging from simple resonant notes, abstract rhythmic clanging and organic soundscapes, rounded up with a futuristic approach, perfect for gloomy science-fiction projects. The takes are long and evolving, giving you creative freedom to use them however deemed necessary.
This library provides the highest quality vocal sounds of the members of a wolves pack in their social interaction: Howls solo and in groups from 2 to 9, fierce growls, extremely bassy grumblings, barks, snorts, whines, yapping. All the raw material was collected using the method of passive week-long observation with minimal intrusion, nothing was staged or provoked. A large part of the library is made of unintentional recordings of the accidental territorial quarrel between a polar wolf SEVER and an alpha male HORT: very aggressive growls, teeth clacking and other fight sounds. Luckily, despite the terrifying sonic impression, no one was injured. About 60 hours of raw recordings were edited into 1 hour 18 minutes, 151 files with 500+ individual sounds. Wolves are very emotional, expressive and surprisingly musical. So, these sounds can be equally useful for films and games representing wolves, as well as for creature and monster sound design. Some of the recordings sound very humanlike.
10% of this library revenue goes to the shelter for wolves.
