In these brand-new SFX libraries, you will find SFX dedicated to the booms of European tanks, the hollow gusts of open field wind, the pitter patter and stomps of group running, the twists and drops of cinematic trailers, the whirring of dentistry tools, the rattling and humming of a ferry, and the pop, scrape and hum of power tools. With such a multitude of different sounds, you’re sure to find something you like!
The Dentist Office
 
  • Mechanical The Dentist Office Play Track 100 sounds included, 25 mins total $39

    Dr. Daniels is the only dentist I’ve ever known and he was gracious enough to let me roam around his office after hours collecting these sounds.

    The intent was to gather source material for hi-tech gadgetry so the library contains a nice selection of tools and equipment including drills, a mouth vacuum, an ultrasonic water sprayer, dental lathe, dental kiln, a creepy sounding dentist chair and a wicked cool CEREC machine (diamond tipped milling machine that cuts dental implants).

    The handheld tools are “performed” so as to create movement, pass by’s and simulate power fluctuations.

'The Dentist Office' by Big Room Sound Inc is a fun collection of all the tools you'd find in the place no one wants to visit. This library contains over 100 sounds of dentistry performed like foley to include fluctuations, movements and passbys. It contains dentist drills revving at different speeds, a mouth vacuum that hisses, a water sprayer spraying at different lengths, and a dental lathe that hums and switches on and off. The library even features objects from around the office like a creepy dentist chair that squeaks and groans, hands-free pneumatic cupboard doors that open and close, and room tone from the dentist lab. If you need sounds that remind you of your semi-annual visit, this is one to hear.
 
Human Stampede
 
  • Footsteps Human Stampede Play Track 13 sounds included, 18 mins total $7 $5

    Human Stampede was recorded across multiple marathon races and captures the sound of footsteps of large crowds of runners. The idea was to capture long takes in stereo with minimal or non-existent crowd chatter to get stereo recordings that are useful for scenes of riots, warfare or even a plain old fun run.

The files also vary from one minute to over ten minutes, allowing most files to have multiple loops points. Once you listen to this library, you will realize how useful it is!
 
Chain Ferry
 
  • Vehicles Chain Ferry Play Track 17+ sounds included, 56 mins total $35

    Chain Ferry features the remarkable sounds of a 100 year old ferry with a specific drive system. The ferry pulls along a strong chain lying at the ground of the river to cross. This is achieved by a clever combination of 3 drive wheels that guide the chain and prevent it from dropping to the ground.

    The Library contains several complete audio takes of the ferry in action – from departure to arrival. This encompasses engine start, engine idle, loading ramp noises and bangs plus a lot of chain rattling from various perspectives. The sounds are recorded aboard and from both sides of the river so that the entire scenery can be covered acoustically.

'Chain Ferry' is made by the master of close-up machine recordings, Stephan Marche from Detunized. His new library has sounds of a 100 year-old ferry and all its moving parts with its chains, engine, ramp, gears, and pulleys. You will find close-up sounds of loud rattling onboard the ferry, droning vibrations from the watercraft's body, banging from the ramp as it lowers, rumbling from the engine as it starts and idles, and much more. Each file is between one minute and four and a half minutes to allow for complex variations and hundreds of individual sounds in this near one-hour library. From departure to arrival, this library should come in handy for any large machines and vehicles with exposed moving parts in your project.
 
Power Tools
 
'Power Tools' by Glad Sound Libraries is a collection of sounds you'd find in a carpenter's shop. It includes different types of saws, screwdrivers, planers, hot air guns, and a sewing machine. In this library you will find some of the sounds are performed while others are nearly half a minute long - and with a sample rate of 96 kHz, these sounds can definitely be stretched into sounds of evil robots, menacing drones, or spaceship engines. It also contains several takes of each machines to allow for intricate design. For less than the price of any tool featured, this library a definitely worth a listen.
 
Swedish Tanks
 
'Swedish Tanks' by Glad Sound Libraries has huge, close-up sounds of war that complement their earlier release, 'Infantry Soldiers'. The massive fighting machine featured in this library rumbles and roars by for 41 sounds of incredibly visceral and realistic sounds. It drives around, parks, idles and shoots blanks aimed at the recorder from 70 meters away. The library also includes the sounds of a Gripen fighter jet as it rips through the sky. If you are looking for the full monty of military sounds and have yet to include tanks to your collection, check out this library.

  • This is a unique bicycle library that captures this characteristic bike in clean, quiet, nicely performed true exterior rides. Including multiple perspectives, speeds and actions. From fast passbys on asphalt to slow onboard recordings and smooth stops.

    The UglyBike is a typical old bicycle that’s working fine, but needs some TLC. It is a bicycle that’s just average, a little rattle a gentle scrape, a bike that everyone has had but got traded in for a newer one. A story of unrequited love.. :)

    Speeds and actions:
    Three speeds. Departures from slow, medium to fast getaways. Arrivals from slow stops with gently squeaking handbrakes to heavy stuttering skids.

    Five perspectives:
    1. Onboard Front: captures the whirring tire and surface sound.
    2. Onboard Pedal: nice overall combination of pedaling, crank creaks, chain rattle, tire and surface sounds.
    3. Onboard Rear: close up sound of the rear axle, with chain, sprocket and switching of gear.
    4. Tracking shot: mono recording of the passby, keeping the bike in focus while passing by.
    5. Static XY shot: stereo recording of the passby that emphasizes speed.

    Overview of perspectives and mic placement:

    Onboard recordings are 2-3 minutes long depending on speed. Higher speeds > shorter duration.
    All 3 onboard mics are edited in sync with one another to make layering easy.
    All Passbys, Arrivals and Departures move from Left to Right.

    Metadata & Markers:
    Because we know how important metadata is for your sound libraries we have created a consistent and intuitive description method. This allows you to find the sound you need easily, whether you work in a database like Soundminer/Basehead/PT Workspace work, or a Exporer/Finder window.

    However, we are aware that some people have different needs for different purposes, so we’ve created a Metadata Reference Guide that explains the structure. And because we’ve automated the metadata proces, you can be confident that a ‘find & replace’ command will always replace all instances.

    Download our Metadata Reference Guide

    Download complete metadata PDF

    If you have any questions about this, contact us!

    Additionally, we added Markers to some wave files, so specific sound events are easy to spot in Soundminer or other database apps.
