This week on A Sound Effect, we have new sound libraries that can put you in the middle of a packed stadium or take you on a solitary underwater journey. There are crowd sounds from Italian soccer games and various musical venues, and ambiences from inside car cabins or deep in the ocean. You can also hear foley of whooshing fire effects, cleaning dishes, wood and glass debris, and two new options for buying and implementing the Edward footstep and foley packs. These detailed textures definitely have the final touches you need for your sound design!

    What if you never again had to worry about the perfect ambience sounds for crowded concert audiences? What if you could just drag two files into your project and you’re in control over applauding, cheering or shouting masses? Our CROWDS – CONCERT AUDIENCES sound effects library does exactly that.

    YOU’RE THE MASTER OF CEREMONY
    CROWDS – CONCERT AUDIENCES is your best choice for designing realistic crowded concert audience ambiences with ease. Packed with thousands of single files for almost every possible scenario, we bring you the world’s probably biggest sound FX library of this kind and the ultimate concert audience toolkit. From smaller more intimate aulas or clubs to the huge and heavy sound of an enthusiastic open air or stadium atmosphere, you get a seemingly unlimited amount of real-live ambiences to conveniently pick from.

    WHAT WE RECORDED
    We went out and recorded aulas, studios, clubs, theatres, churches, concert halls, open air festivals and stadiums. Besides the mandatory applause we also captured varied audience reactions like cheering, shouting, mumbling and screaming. All this in multiple variations to perfectly blend them together. Most of the files come in quadrophonic recordings, meaning you have each the front and the rear recording as a stereo file and can mix it the way you want.

    WHAT YOU GET
    CROWDS – CONCERT AUDIENCES bursts at the seams. As one of our biggest SFX libraries yet, with a total size of more than 24GB and more than 4.500 files, it hardly leaves anything to desire.

    EASE OF USE
    Using those sounds couldn't be easier. Just drag and drop the SFX in your personal project and get mind-blowing results instantly.

    The files come in 48kHz/24bit WAV files. All files contain extensive metadata to provide you with the fastest and easiest workflow possible. We’re convinced that this library will be the last CROWDS – CONCERT AUDIENCES SFX library you’ll buy for a very long time.
