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.
 
I Had A Little Dreidel
 
'I Had A Little Dreidel' by All You Can Eat Audio has you likely humming the holiday tune, but this library is anything but melodic! Rather you'll hear recordings of a dreidel spinning on various surfaces at many speeds. The top bounces, spins, and scrapes across a wooden table, a stool, and different types of drum heads, giving you sounds of momentum that could be used for engines, close-up spine-chilling effects, or whatever you'd like to interpret them as. With over three hours of content, you'll get all the dreidel sounds you'll need for several Hanukkahs to come.

'Drones & Pads Vol. 01' by Bony Stoev has an hour and 14 minutes of stylish and emotive drones that will provide your sci-fi and horror projects a thick atmosphere. Most of the drones were recorded as analog effects, giving your project a warm, vintage edge that's incredibly popular right now. These pads range from low pumping ambiences straight out of a dark urban alleyway to washes of musical textures. All together you get 28 drones, so if you're looking for moody, retro-futuristic backgrounds (that are 50% off at the moment), give this one a listen.

Popular sound effects this week:

 
  • Sci-Fi Slinky Pews and Pows Play Track 156+ sounds included, 24 mins total $10.99

    Sounds for you to use for sci fi lasers, thin sheets of ice and electricity popping sounds recorded with a contact microphone and a slinky.

    Inspired by thin ice sound recordings and huge pictures of power lines, I recorded a slinky with a contact microphone in order to get some sounds for some thin ice. I ended up with a lot of sci fi lasers and “star trek torpedos.” With some cool bouncing popping electricity stuff, take a listen and pick up a copy to throw in your library when creating sci fi stuff and/or some electricity being sent through power lines!!

    Here is a little demo. I think some cool sounds were captured. with the 96k recording you can pitch it quite harshly and get some fine stuff…..the last 2 laser “blasts” have been pitched for you to hear. the first one at 20% of the original speed and the last at 15%. Feel free to send me an email if you want to hear more.

    Don't be fooled at the size of 350mb and 24 minutes….there is all the sounds you could want from a slinky in here. :D
