With so many new libraries at A Sound Effect, we had to do a special bi-weekly roundup to cover them all! In this recap, you will find sounds of antique mills from the 1500s, cartoonish laughs and reactions, gushing waterfalls that envelop your ears, old-fashioned cash registers, vigorous summer rain and thunderstorms, ’90s land cruisers, and ambiences from northern Indian and Senegal. These SFX creators are back in full swing, so we hope you’re as delighted with their sounds as we are!



Antique Mills
 
  • Industrial Antique Mills Play Track 65 sounds included, 77 mins total From: $60

    Get the sounds of an ancient water spelt mill from 1529, as well as an antique tannery, also driven by a huge water wheel from 1699.

    Both mills have been working for hundreds of years and continue to work even today.

    This library is recorded in high resolution audio in 24Bit/96kHz on a Sound Devices 702T with Sennheiser 8040 Mics in Mono or ORTF Stereo.

The Soundcatcher released 'Antique Mills', a library that has the sounds of a water spelt mill from 1529 (the year of the Westrogothian rebellion in Sweden, don't you remember?). As the stream pushes the wheel, you hear plenty of creaks, groans, rushing water, mechanic rumbles, rattling chains, pipe resonances, and more. It also has sounds of a 1699 tannery and all its various hammer drops. Whether your sound design goes back in time or has characters who like to work with their hands, be sure to listen to this one.
 
Land Cruiser, 1990
 
  • Vehicles Land Cruiser, 1990 Play Track 4+ sounds included, 84 mins total $60

    This is a 4-channel recording of an old Toyota Land Cruiser driving on dirt roads. It was recorded by George Vlad and Daan Hendriks while attending the 2016 Sonic Mmabolela annual workshop in Limpopo Province, South Africa. 4 DPA 4060 mics were attached to the vehicle’s body to capture engine compartment, exhaust and wheel sounds.

    The vehicle was used for game drives around the reserve and had no windshield, windows or roof as can be seen in the photos. It was powered by a 4 litre/155 hp Toyota 3F petrol engine that did an excellent job despite its age. It also sounded pretty wild for an untuned utility vehicle.

    The recordings cover a couple of failed ignition attempts, a proper ignition with the car starting, some idling, constant driving, revving, some reversing and then the engine stopping. The 4 different perspectives cover the essential sources of sound and offer a lot of flexibility when designing vehicle sounds for any purpose.

Recorded at the 2016 Sonic Mmabolela annual workshop in Limpopo Province, South Africa, this library features 21 minutes of driving from the perspectives of the exhaust, wheels, and two areas on the engine. Overall, there are 80 minutes of flexible sounds from this dependable sports utility vehicle. Also included are recordings of failed ignition attempts, a start up, idling, revving, reversing, and stopping the engine. If you have off-roading in your project, this might be the library you're looking for.

  • Wind Elements – Interior is 75 minutes/2.43 Gb of howling, blasting and fluttering wind, recorded from inside various buildings. 90 separate files – recorded in 24bit/96kHz using Sennheiser MKH & Primo EM172 microphones, and mastered in X/Y stereo.
    This collection is the bigger, badder sequel to bestseller Howling Winds – Interior, with more of everything: fresh recordings, more types of wind, more locations and just more variation.

    Everything from violent blasting and howling, to gentle, caressing wind. Some with sleet and rain, cracking and creaking of window frames and roof materials, others with faint sound of rustling leaves or urban buzz.

    You get both long ambiances from various locations, as well as plenty of short files to sweeten up your mix.
    Some sounds have been eq'ed aggressively to enhance the feeling of being indoors, but very little processing has been applied otherwise. You'll hear a bit of hiss here and there; I left it in because I felt noise reduction would take away too much character in those specific cases.

    You get:

    • Indoor wind sounds
    • Howling, blasting, fluttering – a bit of sleet & rain too
    • Lots of variations of each sound
    • Searchable file names
    • BWF Metadata embedded – with more included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats
