We even added punchy ready-to-use detailed mixes of all the microphones.

You’ll find sounds like the classic “money earned sound” from turning the clicking cranks and bell ring as the drawer opens, chunky mechanical sounds from pulling the levers and foley sounds from touching and handling the cash registers.

    The library has been tagged with extensive metadata and has been tested in Soundminer, Basehead, Soundly and Pro Sound Effects’ Search to make it easy to find the sounds you are looking for.
