This Library Sucks
 
  • Materials & Texture This Library Sucks Play Track 154 sounds included, 96 mins total $49

    A vacuum cleaner connected to a long hose that leads into the recording room, so you don’t hear the machine – that’s how this library was created.

    It contains sounds from sucking in different materials, dynamic unreal winds & unbearable squeaks from the hose. Furthermore it includes sounds from “inside” the hose/pipe: Close-miked pass-bys of small objects, driven by the wind.

    The recorded frequency content goes up to 100kHz, using a combination of microphones like the Sennheiser MKH 8040 and the Sanken CO-100K. Part of the sound files are already pitched down, so at the delivered 24bit – 96kHz resolution you can pitch them even further down without trimming the full audible frequency spectrum.

    Library highlights:

    • 154 sound files, including 47 seamless loops
    • 96 minutes playing time
    • all files contain meta-data / keywords for easy search

  • Foley Helinä Play Track 754+ sounds included, 225 mins total $80

    “Helinä” can be translated as “the tinkling sound made by the shaking of tiny bells”.  These may be wind chimes, and some are quite large, but the meaning of the name still rings true.  Beautiful, glorious, and entrancing wind chimes, all stirred up for your designing and listening pleasure.

    We've meticulously recorded and only very lightly edited 15 different sets of wind chimes composed of varying materials, shapes, and sizes. The result is a stirring array of shimmering textures from the soft dull knock of bamboo to the brilliant crystalline sparkle of obsidian. 

    The chimes sets and performances include:

    Chimes: Bamboo, Glass Shards, Porcelain Bell, Cast iron Bell, Glass Bell, Stoneware, Obsidian, Buoy, Paper/Mixed, Copper, Aluminum, Bronze, Agate, Shells, Capiz

    Performances: Flowing (Short, Med, Long), Breeze (Light), Windy (Moderate), Stormy (Heavy), Quaking, Plops, Gusts, Strikes, Grabbing, Releasing

    You'll get incredible tonal depth, preciously sustained tails, and conveniently isolated strikes and “gusts” resulting in a natural representation of each chime.  All of the chime-work was recorded in 192 kHz so you can bend, stretch, and twist with the comfort of the extended harmonic content of each chime.  All of the performances resulted in 50 separate files for each of the 15 chimes, making layering and matching performances a breeze.  In addition to the chime sets, we've included four stereo wind captures, in different capacities and locations, for adding context and ambiance to any wind chime-appropriate environment you may find yourself working on.

  • ‘Fully Charged Vol.1’ is a collection of 205 sound effects from the science-fiction realm.
