This week on A Sound Effect, we have lots of outdoor sounds for you to hear, from dense city walla to various types of roaring wind. You can hear ambiences from the busy streets of Cape Town, a silent night in North Yorkshire, a relaxing afternoon in Gothenburg, and a day on a farm in Canada. You can also hear several types of wind howling through pine forests and windows, plus modern drones, diverse time-lapses, and synthy bass drops. Happy listening!

Dormant Village
 
  • Nature & Countryside Dormant Village Play Track 6 sounds included, 12 mins total $40

    Discover the quaint charm of a sleepy Northern English town, on a cold and windy night, the sound of windchimes shimmering through the air.

    The Dormant Village Library was recorded in a small village in North Yorkshire, England, on the night before Christmas. It was very cold and windy, and there were almost no people around, as everyone was sipping hot cocoa in their homes.

    The library was recorded in a few different locations, some close to the little traffic that was still present, and some further away. The recordings were then polished and edited down to just about 12 minutes, preserving the essence of the location.

    In addition to the descriptive SoundMiner metadata embedded in the files, I have also added markers in iZotope RX, which can be read in some versions of SoundMiner, Reaper, etc.

    The markers indicate small sonic events, such as distant, melodic windchimes, or when the wind picks up, allowing you to understand what happens throughout the recording without having to listen to the whole thing.

    If you have any questions about this library, feel free to quickly send me an e-mail. I tend to reply within minutes.

Wind Elements – Interior
 
  • Weather Wind Elements – Interior Play Track 90 sounds included $38

    Wind Elements – Interior is 75 minutes/2.43 Gb of howling, blasting and fluttering wind, recorded from inside various buildings. 90 separate files – recorded in 24bit/96kHz using Sennheiser MKH & Primo EM172 microphones, and mastered in X/Y stereo.
    This collection is the bigger, badder sequel to bestseller Howling Winds – Interior, with more of everything: fresh recordings, more types of wind, more locations and just more variation.

    Everything from violent blasting and howling, to gentle, caressing wind. Some with sleet and rain, cracking and creaking of window frames and roof materials, others with faint sound of rustling leaves or urban buzz.

    You get both long ambiances from various locations, as well as plenty of short files to sweeten up your mix.
    Some sounds have been eq'ed aggressively to enhance the feeling of being indoors, but very little processing has been applied otherwise. You'll hear a bit of hiss here and there; I left it in because I felt noise reduction would take away too much character in those specific cases.

    You get:

    • Indoor wind sounds
    • Howling, blasting, fluttering – a bit of sleet & rain too
    • Lots of variations of each sound
    • Searchable file names
    • BWF Metadata embedded – with more included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats

These recordings capture those moments we all hope for, with clear howling wind through the window cracks, gusts that make it seem like the door will fly right open, and the pitter patter of raindrops trying to make their way to the ground. You also get some gentler moments, a little sleet and rain, and excellent metadata. If your project starts with a dark and stormy night, this one is for you.
 
The Farm
 
  • Animals & Creatures The Farm Play Track 51 sounds included $20 $10

    The Farm is a sound library that I compiled about a year ago just for fun and I kept adding sounds recorded at the same location in the Canadian countryside at 4 different farms. During the recording session, I’ve been lucky enough to have met some fantastic people ready to share their passion for farming and pointing me out to what they felt was an essential part of their everyday soundscape.

    I had the chance to stumble on two late 50s John Deere tractors that where still functional and that marked the end of an era. It is a comprehensive farm sound library that is not just about tractors or animals.

    You will find, in the bonus section, 6 different footsteps surfaces each with a walk and run variation and some more. There are five main categories in this library: Ambiances, Animals, Footsteps, Misc (Various SFX) and Vehicles ready for creating a convincing farm soundscape for your project.
