audio events overview Asbjoern Andersen


Want to grow your network, learn about new sound tools and audio approaches, meet potential customers, find new talent and collaborators – or perhaps simply just hang out with your fellow colleagues in the sound community?

The good news is that there are a huge number of interesting audio conferences, community meetups, masterclasses, industry events and more happening around the world that’ll help you do just that. Trouble is, getting an overview of these events is really hard.

That’s something I’m hoping to change, though. How? I’m really excited to introduce the Audio Events Calendar section here on A Sound Effect, a continuously-updated overview of events that are relevant to those of us who work in sound.

The calendar features more than 40 hand-picked events already + there’s a new calendar widget on the blog, showcasing upcoming events. Be sure to check out the calendar below:

THE WORLD’S EASIEST WAY TO GET INDEPENDENT SOUND EFFECTS:
 
A Sound Effect gives you easy access to an absolutely huge sound effects catalog from a myriad of independent sound creators, all covered by one license agreement - a few highlights:

  • Ice Sound Effects Ultrasonic Dry Ice Play Track 635+ sounds included, 71 mins total $48

    Ultrasonic Dry Ice is a library containing over 600 sounds themed metal resonances, scrapes and all sorts of weird.
    All the content has been recorded at 192KHz with a Sanken CO100K, a couple of Sennheiser MKH8040 and a MKH416.
    The resulting ultrasonic spectrum is rich and allows for truly extreme manipulation of the content.

    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.
  • Materials & Texture Sound Effects Glacier Ice Play Track 300+ sounds included $40

    Glacier Ice is a library containing over 300 high quality sounds of ice cracking, breaking, shattering in various sizes of blocks – recorded entirely in the Italian Alps over the course of two winters.

    The library contains sounds of all dimensions, from ice cubes being dropped in a drink to a designed iceberg collapsing.

    The majority of the material was recorded at 192 KHz with a Sanken CO100K and a stereo pair of Sennheiser MKH8040, making this library greatly flexible for pitch shifting and all sorts of heavy processing.

    A small section recorded at 96KHz features sounds recorded exclusively with contact microphones placed directly on the surface of a frozen water stream.

    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.

3 thoughts on “Introducing a brand new way to find audio events around the world:

  1. It would be great if the city and country of each event was listed at the top of the descriptions indeed the dates. Some are obvious because the city is in the name of the event, but others you have to go to the next page just to find out the location of the event. Other then that thanks for this cool resource. I will be checking it frequently.

  2. This is a great resource to help pull the game audio community together onto the same calendar, nice!

    Also relevant is the Worldwide Game Audio Groups map that shows the location and contact information for game audio groups across the globe.

  3. Nice job to the A Sound Effect team for putting this together! It’s really good to see you guys encouraging community engagement. We’ll definitely refer to this calendar at http://musicblip.com . Thanks for sharing!
