This week on A Sound Effect, we have five new libraries that are useful for all sorts of genres. We have a collection of gun shells that ring and ping as they bounce off various surfaces, police and ambulance sirens from all over Europe and the Americas, detailed whooshes for your spaceships and film trailers, delightful UI SFX from the master of onomatopoeia, and beautifully immersive soundscapes from Canada’s wintery wildernesses. Whether you’re looking for subtly authentic sounds or ones that captivate (and might even influence your animation), we have a great selection this week!
is a carefully designed library with complex whooshes and fly-bys that will make your audience hold onto their hats. With over 110 whooshes, you will hear cinematic and sci-fi movements, transitions, and pass-bys that are fast, booming, stuttering, and more. Plus, the library is available for Kontakt so you can control filters, noise gates, ADSR envelopes, and effects and easily implement them in your trailer or composition! If your film or game needs a little speed, this is the library for you.
gets you 170 sounds of sirens from all over the world. In this library you'll hear sirens belonging to police cars, ambulances, and fire trucks with their country-specific wails, blips, and screams from Mexico, the United States, Denmark, Spain, France, and Germany. It also includes recordings of the engines and horns from internal perspectives, as well as external recordings of pass-bys and arrivals. If you need sounds of an ambulance fast, this library should have you covered.
