12 new sound libraries Asbjoern Andersen


This week on A Sound Effect, we have lots of organic textures to breathe life into your soundscapes.

You can hear sounds of wind traveling across the desert through trees and cacti, Foley of kitchen items and appliances, a collection of slinky contact mic recordings, and 2 sets of transitions that range from subtle to dramatic.

You can also hear a bunch of new game audio asset packs with FPS sounds and ogre and skeleton character vocalizations, as well as designed and source indoor gun and explosion acoustics.

Finally, take a ride on a late ’90s Harley Davidson softail, and while you’re at it, make a stop at the Mediterrean Sea to take in the waves. Happy listening!

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
