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:
Bunker Ambients
 
  • Environments Bunker Ambients Play Track 23+ sounds included, 57 mins total $30 $15

    The Bunkers sound effects library features roomtones and ambiences captured inside old World War II shelters (at the historic WW2 complex known as Wolf’s Lair in Poland).

    The ambiences were captured in small rooms deep inside bunkers, in hallways, inside old rusty water pipes and outside, between bunkers.

    The library includes room tones with water dripping from ceilings, small pieces of wall falling on the floor and wind getting through destroyed walls. The Bunker Ambients library features 23 files with a total length of 57 minutes, recorded with a Sony PCM-M10 and Sennheiser MKH 8040 plugged into Sound Devices 702 recorder in ORTF configuration.

'Bunker Ambients' by Soundholder 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.
