new sound effects chicago sports soccer locks Asbjoern Andersen


This week on A Sound Effect we have eight new libraries. There are urban ambiences from the Windy City, rural sounds of snow at 10,000 feet, indoor and outdoor sports, drones that will make you anxious, a detailed library featuring a 1992 Volvo F12 truck, and plenty of tools and mechanisms. Feast your ears on all the sounds below:
Chicago - Urban Atmosphere
 
  • Get more than 5.5 hours of urban soundscapes from Chicago, Illinois. The recordings in the ‘Chicago – Urban Atmosphere’ library range from busy sidewalk ambiences, street corners, crowds, subways, skyline tones, horns, to back alley rumbles.

    The library is recorded with a Sound Devices 702 recorder + a stereo pair of Schoeps CMC6s with the MK2 H capsules, and is embedded with extensive metadata.

    Iconic Chicago sounds such as the El Train, Lower Wacker Drive, and Michigan Avenue are only some of the unique sounds found in this library. And although Chicago has many iconic features that create its soundscape, this library can be used for any city or urban application.

Lockdown
 
  • Get a huge variety of simple or complex lockdown mechanism sounds with a wide array of different latches and impacts with Lockdown, a performable Kontakt instrument and sound effects library.

    We brought in dozens of props big and small to generate a massive array of source material recorded at 24 bit 192kHz. These included cameras, carabiners, wrenches, rack cases, knives, can openers, tongs, crimpers, solder suckers, file cabinet doors, vehicle doors and servos and much more – all with multiple unique performances per set.

    Great care was taken to record each performance with the highest sonic quality and detail. We chose a pair of MKH50s in XY as our primary setup, creating a big, clean stereo image on every sound.

    Lockdown is divided into two parts –
    elements and designed:

    The elements collection has all of the source recordings in their unaltered states. Each sound is edited, cleaned, volume matched and carefully metadata tagged.


    The designed collection uses samples based on the elements recordings that have been transformed into entirely new and different sounds using heavy processing and layering. It was created to produce interesting design and transition sounds quickly and easily. Lockdown includes over 500 fully lockdowns of all sizes and scales.

    Lockdown highlights

    • more than 1700 elements files
    • 192 kHz source recordings
    • 500 heavily designed sounds
    • 96kHz designed collection
    • 2 full kontakt instruments (full version of Kontakt 5.5 required)
    • soundminer and bwav metadata

    Note: Can be used without Kontakt too!
    All Kontakt instrument libraries include fully unlocked and accessible metadata tagged .wav files. You don't need any version of Kontakt to use these files as a standalone sample library.

    I recorded all these sounds with my brothers during a trip home to Ireland.
    Close to our home (out in the middle of nowhere), there is a little quarry with a lot of sand, dust, stones, rocks and some grass. There was also a broken plough there that gave some nice stone on metal impact sounds.

  • The Floppy Drives sound effects library features recordings of seven computer disk drives: two 3.5″ floppy drives, one 5.25″ floppy drive, three Zip drives, and one SuperDisk drive.

    All drives were taken apart to access and manipulate the stepper/eject motors to create unique sounds. These range from electronic percussive bleeps and glitchy noises, to electromechanical motor movements.

    An Arduino UNO microcontroller board was connected to one of the 3.5″ floppy drives, allowing precise control of the drive’s stepper motor via custom software code. A midi keyboard was interfaced to the system, giving the ability to control the back-and-forth movement of the read/write heads via notes on the keyboard. This essentially turned the drive into an instrument, producing a new set of sounds not existing in the drive’s normal functions.

  • City Life Pedestrian Streets Play Track 50 sounds included, 127 mins total $45 $20

    Pedestrian Streets is a library of 50 ambiences from around 15 different streets, recorded in about 7 cities mostly in Bulgaria.

    Most recordings are made in late autumn or winter because bird life is minimized. The task of this library is to capture much of the different dynamics of pedestrian streets: from zero activity to busy streets, basically concentrating on light activity periods.

    It’s principally recorded in the morning, and you’ll hear the sounds of single footsteps, light voices, shopping streets, dogs, air conditioners, and more of the sounds of a rising city.

    Another basic idea is the minimal presence of cars (as much as possible). There are also atmospheres with greater dynamism, lively streets and various periods of the day.

    All files are meta-tagged in Soundminer

  • Sounds from a classic red phone box.


    The classic red phone box is something that has been part of the landscape, here in Britain, for all of my life and long before. I decided to capture as many sounds from them as I could before they disappear from use. In this pack you will find such sounds as…
    The door opening and closing, a tapping on the window (this could often be heard if you took too long on a call and the next person on line was getting impatient), phone rings and dialling (current and vintage), a man talking away in a phone box, the operator answering a call, room tones and more. Most of these sounds will also be ok for anything visuals that portray the less attractive ‘modern’ glass booths that first appeared in the mid 80s.

  • Animals & Creatures Wolves Play Track 500+ sounds included, 78 mins total $79 $63.20

    DESCRIPTION:

    The highest quality vocal sounds of the members of a wolves pack in their social interaction. Howls solo and in groups from 2 to 9, fierce growls, extremely bassy grumblings, barks, snorts, whines, yapping. All the raw material was collected using the method of passive week-long observation with minimal intrusion, nothing was staged or provoked. A large part of the library is made of unintentional recordings of the accidental territorial quarrel between a polar wolf SEVER and an alpha male HORT: very aggressive growls, teeth clacking and other fight sounds. Luckily, despite the terrifying sonic impression, no one was injured. About 60 hours of raw recordings were edited into 1 hour 18 minutes, 151 files with 500+ individual sounds. Wolves are very emotional, expressive and surprisingly musical. So, these sounds can be equally useful for films and games representing wolves, as well as for creature and monster sound design. Some of the recordings sound very humanlike.

    10% of this library revenue goes to the shelter for wolves.

  • The Crash & Smash sound effects library contains over 1110 sounds of destruction. For this collection I went on a rampage at several junk yards around my hometown, collecting a vast amount of crash sound effects. This one is highly focused more on crashing sounds with all the rumble and debris, giving you hundreds of variations of glass smashes, rolling stones and stone hits, wood breaks and impacts and metal crashes.

    As usual the sounds come perfectly cleaned and edited so you can instantly place them in your timeline or design new sounds with it. Of course they also got some EQ and compression treatment but weren’t further “designed”, so you have nice and flexible source material for your own productions.

    All sounds come with embedded Soundminer Metadata sorted in subfolders for:• Glass

Latest sound effects libraries:
 
  • Recorded by renowned innovators of film sound design Ann Kroeber and Alan Splet, the Stallion library features an incredible variety of charismatic horse sound effects including movements and vocalizations.

    Intensify your projects with rumbling racing gallops, thumping canters, steady trots, and heavy rhythmic breathing. Bring creatures to life with the emotive whinny and neigh sounds of mustang stallions plus strong snorts, charming grunts, light nickers, and guttural exhales.

    Many of these horse sounds were recorded for major feature films including The Black Stallion, The Horse Whisperer, and Hidalgo. Splet’s work on The Black Stallion won him a Special Achievement Academy Award® for Sound Editing. This recognition was largely due to the quality and depth of the source recordings he and Kroeber created.

    Using a unique custom microphone rig (one mic fastened under the belly, another placed in front of the nose), the galloping sound effects in this library achieve an extraordinary dramatic quality with the horse’s powerful footsteps captured in harmony with its breathing.

    Get an array of horse footsteps at your fingertips – moving at every gait and on various surfaces from gravelly dirt to shallow water, grass, sand, cobblestone and more. The Stallion library also includes miscellaneous sounds like chewing, saddle creaks, stretching leather, and scraping carriage wheels.

    Following the libraries Cinematic Winds and Industrial Sounds with Soul, Stallion is the third exclusive release by Pro Sound Effects curated from Sound Mountain: Kroeber and Splet’s venerable private recording collection created over decades of film sound work with celebrated directors like David Lynch, Carroll Ballard, and Peter Weir. Kroeber has since worked on or supplied sounds for film, TV, and games – including 6 movies that won an Academy Award® in sound, and 7 additional nominations.
