This week on A Sound Effect, we have 9 new libraries with the interesting elements to help you reach your milestone. We have sounds for games like musical jingles and futuristic weapons, and we have libraries with memorable tones like mystifying moody drones, sci-fi transitions, and cinematic braams. Plus, we have some organic sounds of swordplay, vintage and modern electronics, books impacts, and urban rain, too. Happy listening!
by Brad Dyck & Tim McCann Sound
has tons of swordplay and martial art sounds that will give your fight scenes that perfect 'shing!'. With nearly 530 sounds each on their own track, you will get recordings of greatswords, longswords, small shields, polestaffs, rapiers, and more. You'll also get tons of whooshes to put your blades in action. If you need ready-to-go sounds of swordplay, this one won't let you down.
by Sound Ex Machina
features 84 recordings of rain from both indoor and outdoor locations. From light rain to downpours, the precipitation in this library falls on quiet urban areas to include rooftops, streets, and parks, as well as car windows, umbrellas, puddles, buckets, machinery, and more. Though they were recorded in a city, these recordings are surprisingly clean and flexible, and you will also receive excellent metadata. Not much more to say other than listen for yourself!
Books & Magazines
'Books & Magazines'
has 87 sounds of books being handled in various ways. You will hear sounds of these publications being flipped over on a table, slammed shut, and moved around on shelves. And of course, there are plenty of sounds of page turns. Each sound was also recorded at 96kHz and is in its own file for quick implementation. If you need sounds of paperbacks and hardcovers in action, check this one out.

With 86 designed bursts and one-shots, 30 cinematic drones, 97 weapons loadings and re-programmings, and 3 distant explosions, this library will cover more of your needs than you probably anticipated! These intricately designed assets are ready to go for your game to make a big impression on your players. For AAA quality FPS sounds, give this one a listen.

For a library that ranges from chaotic to quietly unnerving, this one will inspire you.
