'Cross Country Skiing' by Sounds Of Norway was recorded in a country where kids essentially are born on skis.

You also get sounds from different perspectives, as well as recordings from off-trail treks. Whether your characters were challenged to race down K-12, K-13, or Devil's Mountain, this library will help your skiløpere in any situation.
 
Fight Moves
 
  • Foley Fight Moves Play Track 188 sounds included, 8 mins total $19

    Whooshes are a key component for energy and drama in a fight scene, but can sometimes be over the top. So I recorded a simple but very useful library of cloth moves specifically for fights. They work like whooshes but sound a lot more natural.

    Three different fabrics: jeans, nylon shorts and a cotton pillow case. All with the same coverage: grabs, single moves (varying intensities), sequenced moves for more variation, and struggling moves for when your character is pinned.

  • Alchemy of Guns is a comprehensive weapon laboratory of single sounds made to be mixed, assembled and fit with each other.
    We built the library as an array of modular layers, each one bound to a specific alchemical element, each one made with a specific Xfer Serum setup, and since we enjoyed finding ourselves sketching on paper combinations of elements according to the combinations of the samples, we kept this general structure.

  • Nuts and Bolts contains a huge array of DIY and construction themed sound effects featuring tools that are used by tradesmen such as hammers, saws, chisels and spanners, as well as several other miscellaneous tools such as brushes, tape, filler guns and of course, nuts, bolts and screws.

    As well as hand-operated tools, Nuts and Bolts gives you several power tool sound effects being operated at different intensity levels. All of the sounds in this library have been recorded in context, meaning that they reflect how you would actually use the tools, not just how they sound in a controlled studio environment. We recorded close, distant and far recordings to capture natural reverb, giving you the maximum flexibility when searching for the right sound for your projects. We also recorded dropping effects for most of the tools.

    Nuts and Bolts contains a total of 145 files (with lots of variations per file) including a designed folder of 10 sounds. This library gives you everything you need to create compelling DIY and construction soundscapes, ideal for use in a range of sound design applications including building sites, mechanics garages, joinery, metalwork workshops, painting, decorating, and demolition based scenes. All sounds have been recorded in 24bit 96khz, and have been carefully edited so that you can easily drop them into your project timeline and get working right away.

    Here are the included folders:

    Power Tools: Lovely and disturbing drills, saws and electric sanders, perfect for becoming a noisy neighbor.

    Hammers and Mallets: Hitting and dropping things as hard as possible makes a lovely sound, great for building trailer impacts.

    Toolboxes: Heavy and metallic rummaging through a large toolbox.

    Spanners: Turning bolts and spinning ratchets.

    Saws: The seminal DIY sound effects of sawing wood.
