  • Drones & Moods Around Bridges 1 (Dresden) Play Track 70 sounds included, 30 mins total $35

    Around Bridges introduces the inner sound of various bridges.
    The steel components of a bridge transmit the vibrations caused by passing cars or pedestrians in a fascinating manner.
    So this library contains the sounds of excited beam barriers, noise barriers, expansion gaps and a lot more steel components that bridges are made of.
    Also included are takes of footsteps, rain and wind – ordinary noises that get a certain magic when recorded at a handrail.
    To round up this library several high quality AB-stereo ambiences of the acoustical surroundings of bridges are included.

    Around Bridges features sounds organised into 10 categories:

    Ambience Below • Ambience Top • Beam Barriers • Expansion Gaps • Footsteps Handrails • Noise Barriers • Rain • Steel Structures • Wind

  • Doom Drones contains more than 3Gb of eerie, doomful, dark, atmospheric field recordings, designed drones and backgrounds. Perfect for something in the realm of a David Lynch film, ambient music production, a horror film, or just to set the mood of a foreboding soundscape.

    Each artist made 60 custom loops for a total of 120 loops. With SoundMorph focusing more on field recordings and subtle tonal design and Arovane focusing more on dynamic synthetic textures and sound design. Both perfectly suitable as layers or final assets, depending on their use, Doom Drones is a great addition for anyone wanting to enhance dark ominous moments.

    All field recordings were captured with a mid/side stereo setup consisting of 2 Schoeps CMC6 bodies, Schoeps mk5 & mk8 capsules housed in a Rycote AE windshield running into a Sound Devices 722.

  • Mechanical Floppy Drives Play Track 655 sounds included $45

    The Floppy Drives sound effects library features recordings of seven computer disk drives: two 3.5″ floppy drives, one 5.25″ floppy drive, three Zip drives, and one SuperDisk drive.

    All drives were taken apart to access and manipulate the stepper/eject motors to create unique sounds. These range from electronic percussive bleeps and glitchy noises, to electromechanical motor movements.

    An Arduino UNO microcontroller board was connected to one of the 3.5″ floppy drives, allowing precise control of the drive's stepper motor via custom software code. A midi keyboard was interfaced to the system, giving the ability to control the back-and-forth movement of the read/write heads via notes on the keyboard. This essentially turned the drive into an instrument, producing a new set of sounds not existing in the drive's normal functions.
