new game sound effects Asbjoern Andersen


This week we have five new sound libraries with three that are ready to be implemented into your game, featuring sounds of AI, UI, gun foley, body foley, and doors, item sounds and wind. We also have recordings of metal as it is captured in an automotive shop with a close mono and distant stereo pair, as well as outdoors across desolate, rolling landscapes with contact mics attached to fences and rails. If you’re looking for a specific or versatile library, this recap has something for you!
Metal Atmosphere
 
  • Materials & Texture Metal Atmosphere Play Track 29 sounds included, 120 mins total
    Rated 5.00 out of 5
    $65 $55

    Metal Atmosphere is a collection of contact microphone recordings of wire fences vibrating in the wind.

    The library consists of 29 recordings ranging from 1 minute to over 10 minutes in length. These have been recorded by taping JrF contact microphones to wire fences and other structures through which sound travels easily.

    Most of the sounds are made by the wind “playing” the wires as a huge stringed instrument, while a few others are recordings of submerged wooden fences. The tone is generally dark, even menacing, bringing desolate spaces to mind.

    The sounds can be used as backgrounds even if they technically aren’t proper ambiences, as there is a certain degree of similarity between the two channels which creates a fake stereo field. About half of the files also include wind gusts and wind-specific dynamics which renders them easily identifiable as wind sounds, only with extra metal elements added. Additionally there are countless impacts, risers and swells included which can easily be cut out and used as spot effects. All files are recorded and mastered at 24/96 quality which makes them excellent sound design elements ripe for serious processing.

    In total, more than 2 hours of metal atmospheres and resonances from unique sources – tagged with comprehensive metadata.

'Metal Atmosphere' by Mindful Audio takes you into the mind of this shiny element. This library has over two hours of metal atmospheres that were captured with two JrF contact mics. These mics were attached to rails and fences as they resonated with wind, producing dark textures, boinging hits, creaks, drones and much more. The mics were also attached to submerged wooden fences for sounds you may never have experienced. If you need dark ambiences, sounds to thicken your audio, or something that sounds out of this world, check out this library.
 
Auto Workshop
 
  • Environments Auto Workshop Play Track 72+ sounds included, 83 mins total $35

    Want the sounds of a garage / auto repair workshop? The Auto Workshop SFX library features lots of different tool sounds and general ambiences from automotive workshops (originally recorded for scenes in the Bulgarian feature Godless).

    The idea was to capture the sounds at both closeup and off-mic, to be able to fade easily between them. A mono microphone was placed close to the source, and a set of stereo microphones was set up further away, capturing more of the room and echo. The result is very usable, and the ability to fade between closeup and wide shot works very well.

'Auto Workshop' by SonicSalute features tools and ambiences from, you guessed it, an automotive workshop. This library features sounds of compressed air, ceiling winches, hammers, doors, gates and wrenches, as well as skills such as welding, sawing and pressure washing. These sounds were captured with both a close-up mono and a distant stereo pair to allow you to fade between them whilst maintaining proper perspective and reverb. If you need sounds from a shop, this is one to listen to.

  • Animals & Creatures Animal Hyperrealism Vol II Play Track Over 2000 sounds included
    Rated 5.00 out of 5
    $170

    Animal Hyperrealism Vol II is a library containing sounds themed animal vocalisations, from real to designed creatures totaling more than 2000 individual sounds in 283 files.

    The sounds were partly recorded with animals trained for media production, partly recorded in zoos and wildlife centers. The asset list includes but is not limited to: amur leopards, bottlenose dolphins, californian sealions, pacific walruses, red ruffed lemurs, owls, parrots, dwarf little fruit bats, hamsters, guinea pigs and many more.

    The content has been recorded at 192KHz with a Sanken CO100K plus a Sennheiser 8050 for center image and a couple of Sennheiser MKH8040 for stereo image.
    A special section of the library features samples recorded at 384KHz. For these sounds an additional microphone was employed, specifically the CMPA by Avisoft-Bioacoustics which records up to 200 KHz. This microphone was actually used to record most of the library but the 384KHz format was preserved only where energy was found beyond 96KHz not to occupy unnecessary disk space.
    All files are delivered as stereo bounce of these for mics, though in some instances an additional couple of CO100K was added to the sides.
    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.

  • Designed in Imperial Russia, spread around the world, this is the rifle of Zaitsev and millions of other Soviets and non-Soviets alike, sounding off through the bloodier moments of the 20th century, and sometimes this century too.

    Shooting was recorded at the outdoor range, with additional handling foley taken at the studio. The all-angle library includes the recording of distant shots on Sennheiser Ambeo, and on Neumann U87s in quadro formation. Our mic-ing and capturing process has been intricate enough to give you all the sound versatility you'll need for use in a fully dynamic project, and also for the ability for these sounds to pass for not just authentic Mosin fire, but also for a generic bolt-action internal magazine-fed 'old rifle' sound.
