This week we have nine new libraries, and each one has a unique approach. You will find interior ambiences from an abandoned WWII bunker, a series of burps from the belching master, climactic buzzes of a Stihl chainsaw, a roaring fire from a metal stove, crackling ice, zooming podracers, and world sounds from Spain, Austria and Turkey. If you need distinct, accurate detailed or flexible sounds that can be stretched for many purposes, check out the libraries below:
has almost an hour of ambiences from these fortifications to give your project a realistic and eerie feel. Recorded in historic WW2 shelters in Poland, these sounds feature crumbling walls, wind slipping through cracks, and water dripping from the ceilings. Bits of the nearby forest also creep in with buzzing mosquitos, creaking trees, and small birds, giving you the sense there may be a way out. Whether you are designing a post-apocalyptic scene in an underground shelter, or you are looking for ambiences to fit general industrial areas or large craft interiors, this library will help make your audience feel a little claustrophobic.
High Desert Chainsaw
'High Desert Chainsaw'
by Thomas Rex Beverly
is a collection of chainsaws ready for your Ed Gein-inspired horror flick. In this library you will find over 100 sounds of this heavy duty tool as it starts up, turns over, shuts off, purrs like a jaguar, revs, and chews through heavy oak trunks and branches. Each sound ranges from 1 second to 1 minute and 45 seconds, offering a good mix of individual sounds and sequences for perfect transitions. If you need a growling chainsaw that's clean and not over-processed, check this new library out.
Fire Burning Stove
For the roar of a fire contained by a metal stove, 'Fire Burning Stove'
by Ronan Quigley
will meet your needs. This collection has sounds of the fire's life cycle from the initial flames to its thick, full-blasting burn to the crackle of dying embers. With nearly a half hour of ambiences from several perspectives, there are plenty of crackles, pops and hisses, as well as sounds of the metal stove contracting from the heat. Plus, each track loops! If you're looking for the hiss and roar of a well-built fire, check this library out.
A respectable burp cannot be judged purely on its power or length but for its expression, and who else could better demonstrate this than sound designer Jack Menhorn
? In 'Burp'
, you will hear over 240 multifarious belches with long airy releases, strained squals, windy outbursts, short grunts, and even ones that end with a question mark or sound like they're coming from the undead. These sounds were also recorded at 96kHz, allowing you to create deep monstrous rumbles and high-pitched gassy goblins. If you didn't think there was an art to belching, this library will convince you otherwise.
Chaosmos – Sounds From Istanbul
'Chaosmos – Sounds From Istanbul'
by Furkan Utku Gerçik
is a collection of over seven hours of ambiences from Istanbul. In this sound library you will hear some of the expected sounds of the city with vendors shouting at bazaars, street musicians performing for tourists, ships and seagulls nearby the shore, and adhans from distant mosques, but you will also find incredibly intimate sounds with quiet conversations in a small restaurant, music lessons in a children's conservatory, and even people waiting in line at the post office. If you aren't sure this library has the sounds you're looking for, then let its 9 minute demo take you to where Asia and Europe meet.
Barcelona City Ambiences
'Barcelona City Ambiences'
by Monte Sound
features Spain's 'City of Counts' - and not the ones who suck your blood or happily do your taxes. This library has sounds the streets, beaches, balconies and busses of this coastal city, giving you ambiences filled with busy bakeries, ringing church bells (from the breathtaking Sagrada Família temple), and even megaphones and cheering at the end of a marathon. If you're looking for classy southern European atmospheres near the Balearic Sea, give this one a listen.
Vienna City Ambiences
has another romantic European city this week with 'Vienna City Ambiences'
. This library has 76 minutes of ambiences from inside and outside hotels, subways, airports, restaurants and churches around the Austria's capital. The library also comes in Stereo and 5.1 Surround, offering flexibility for however you want to use the distinct sound of the Austrian accent. If you need ambiences from Johann Strauss and Erwin Schrödinger's birthplace, you've come to the right place.
by Articulated Sounds
has sounds that, depending on where you live, can't be found all year long. This library features 315 sounds of ice creaking under pressure, breaking into debris and falling into water. These up-close recordings offer a wide variety of creaks, squeaks, crumbles, and collapses that are perfect for adding tension, debris and impacts to your scene. Save yourself the chilly trip to a desolate, frozen lake and check out this library.
Space Racer – Pass-bys
'Space Racer – Pass-bys'
by Fox Audio Post-Production
