Another huge amount of excellent releases from the sound effects community, so we’re dividing this recap into two again. First up, we have five new libraries that are all about the feels. You’ll hear the rustling of branches and leaves of Danish trees, squeaky and wet sounds of smooching, boiling and trickling plastic that would intrigue the periodic table, bubbling tones of smooth and musical UI sounds, and the crinkling and tearing of paper and cardboard. Whether you are looking for organic sounds of humans and nature or abstract textures for a user interface, these libraries will surely give you the “touch” you need.
Wind In Trees
 
  • Weather Wind In Trees Play Track 32 sounds included, 93 mins total $22

    Here are ambient and specific recordings of rustling leaves, fluttering twigs and creaking trunks. Pine and Fir trees, Beechwood hedgerows and leafless Oak trees, along tall grass and reeds. All in all, a collection representative of the cultured landscape in Denmark, as well as much of northern Europe. I was lucky enough to record a storm during the last days of 2016, and those sounds are of course included here. No human voices or man-made sounds, but a few of the sounds have bird vocalizations in them.

    The focus is rather narrow, going for many nuances of the same flavor – rather than many flavors. If you need sounds of a storm or gale in northern European vegetation, then this should fit the bill. Note that there is audible buffeting in several files. I opted to leave it in there, as it might suit some purposes, and let me keep the most violent passages. You can try your luck with noise reduction, but since wind is mostly broadband noise anyway, it might not turn out well. YMMV.

    A few sounds appear in both mono and stereo versions, where the stereo version are X/Y derived from the M/S source files and the mono versions are simply the Mid channel. I did this, because most people seem to prefer X/Y files for post-work, rather than M/S – but a down-mix of X/Y to mono would be inferior to using the original Mid-mic signal. All sounds were captured in Denmark between October and January.

    You get:
    • Wind through trees, bushes and tall grass
    • Close recordings and wider takes
    • X/Y Stereo and Mono sounds (decoded from M/S)
    • Searchable file names
    • Metadata included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats
'Wind In Trees' by hzandbits features wind rushing through the foliage of rustic Denmark. Recorded far away from humans, these pine trees, fir trees, and wintery oaks sway in the breeze and survive harsh storms during late fall to the dead of winter. This library captures rustling leaves, branches, twigs, and creaking trunks, as well the tall grass, hedges and reeds along the floors of the Nordic landscape. For detailed textures of wind that would be hard to synthesize, listen to this library.
 
Kiss
 
  • Human Kiss Play Track 120 sounds included $19 $11.40

    The KISS sound library gets you exactly what its name suggests: Kissing sounds, and lots of them! This is a collection of genuine, untreated recordings of all kind of kisses.

'Kiss' by Articulated Sounds is a collection of cute, friendly kisses that would give anyone's lips a workout. In this library, you get a variety of kissing sounds that range from long strenuous smooching sounds to short and soft, simple pecks.

'Designed Plastic' by Gregor Quendel focuses on our favorite synthetic compounds. With 110 sounds, it has abstract textures that have been layered, morphed and shifted for sounds of boiling, rippling, creaking, droning, ripping and more that are somewhere between liquids and solids. These sounds not only work for otherworldly plasma storms and drones, they could also inspire new alien character designs, granular motion, and so much more.

    It can be a great and handy tool in designing more complex sound effects for games, like weapons sound effects or game user interface.
