This week we have new libraries that can meet your specific needs or give you fresh sounds to experiment with. You can hear drones with a warm ’80s sound a la Stranger Things, as well as dreidels spinning on a variety surfaces and a construction kit library that will take you inside a Petri dish. If you’re looking for memorable textures with “that certain something”, you might find them here. Happy listening!
Microbes
 
  • Microbes is 76 minutes/2.12 Gb of microscopic life forms skittering and scurrying about in their strange world. 326 separate files – recorded in 24bit/96kHz using various microphones.

    A construction kit of the sounds you need to design organisms on the microscopic level. Whether you're making a medical animation, a nature documentary or something entirely fictional, Microbes delivers in skittering, fluttering and slithering sounds. Anything from single-cell organisms to complex insects is possible. Sounds are grouped in a variety of creature “species”, allowing you to create different voices with a good amount of nuance in performance. You also get a range of bubbling and swarming sounds, as well as wet and slimy elements. To complete your microscopic universe, there are a number of abstract and otherworldly ambiances.

    Sounds were created using various physical instruments and props, such as a hardware modular synth, bowed metal springs, a cactus and good fashioned old voice acting. No actual microbes were harmed (or even consulted) during production. You can read more about the creation of Microbes here.

    You get:
    •Designed sounds of microscopic life
    •Slither, skittering and fluttering creatures
    •Several distinct species
    •Searchable file names
    •BWF Metadata embedded – with more included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats.
'Microbes' by hzandbits is a creepy, crawly sound library that would probably make you panic if it was what you heard while waking up. With 76 minutes of watery movement, including bubbles, sizzles, chewing sounds, squeaks, plops, and more, this incredibly unique library and construction kit will help you build an otherworldly place - or one that exists on our own world under a microscope. Whether you need sounds of a critter's movement, tiny voice, or moist environment, this library has you covered.
