Electromagnetic
 
  • Electricity Electromagnetic Play Track 1200+ sounds included $75

    The sound library that you didn’t know you needed, a collection of electromagnetic sounds presented in Ultra-HD 24-bit 192k resolution. First a little science lesson: All Electric devices produce a magnetic field. Usually, you don’t hear this field. And you can’t record it with a normal microphone. You need to use an induction coil pickup. These pickups are commonly used to record telephone conversations. But, hold them up to an electric device and all sorts of chaos ensues.

    This library features various motors recorded with an induction coil pickup, as well as TVs, mobile phones, car ignitions, light bulbs, you name it. Many items that you use everyday give off amazing magnetic fields and we happily recorded as many as we could. The second half of this library is all synth sounds that, at times, sound even more electric than the real stuff.

'Electromagnetic' by Sound Effects Monkey uses the magic of an induction coil pickups to capture detailed, shimmering and sometimes unsettling textures.

It also includes a collection of synth sounds that will add emotion and climax to your mix, too. For complex electromagnetic pickups for your drones, UI SFX, and transitions, this is a solid collection.
 
Guns
 
  • Weapons Guns Play Track 770+ sounds included $199

    This is not another tired collection of stereo mixes or over-designed guns. We are proud to offer a massive set of multi-channel gun recordings, produced by experienced weapon recordists. Each weapon in the library includes sounds from at least 8 microphone perspectives, covering close, medium, and distant perspectives. We traveled to the Arizona desert and recorded real guns, firing live rounds, in an great sounding outdoor environment.

    We have kept these sounds as raw and unprocessed as possible. While we carefully edited and cleaned every sound, you may still encounter occasional noise (shell ejections, rumble, wind buffets, and other outdoor sounds). It is our belief that if removing noise takes away from the character of the sound, we’d rather leave it alone, and let the end user decide how to best fit the sound in their mix. Despite any small imperfections, these are the cleanest, most powerful, and most useful gun recordings you will find anywhere.

    Each weapon offers multiple takes and perspectives. Semi-Auto and Bolt Action guns include multiple single shots (8-12).  Full-Auto guns include multiple single shots, bursts, and long bursts (generally around 16-20+ rounds). You’ll find at least 8 microphone positions for each weapon; covering close, medium, and distant perspectives. View the weapon list to see everything that is included in this library.

    Featuring 27 different weapons:
    • Handguns
    • Rifles
    • Assault Rifles
    • Submachine Guns
    • Belt-Fed Machine Guns
    • Suppressed weapons

    Weapons included:
    AK47, AR 10, FN FAL 7, SCAR17, Heckler & Kock HK 53, M4 Carabine, Glock 18, Kimber Customer II 1911, Smith & Wesson 686. Walther P1, Walther P99, Browning M2HB, M240, M249 SAW, PKM, RPD 7, Mosin Nagant M44 Bolt Action, Saiga IZ-139, Savage Arms Model 16 Bolt Action, SKS, FN P90, Heckler & Koch MP5, Mini UZI 9mm, Uzi 9mm, m4 Carabine Suppressed, Mini Uzi Suppressed, HK MP5 Suppressed

Searching for gun sounds can be intimidating, since they can often be too compressed, too expensive, or just not have the models you're looking for. Luckily, Sound Effects Monkey is here to give you an excellent collection. Their new library 'Guns' includes gunshots from 27 handguns, assault rifles, SMGs, machine guns, and suppressed weapons. You'll hear everything from a Glock 18 to the U.S. Army's darling M249 SAW with 8 microphone perspectives, single shots, bursts, and long bursts of 16-20 rounds. Whether you have an arsenal of SFX or you're just starting out, this library is a no-brainer.

Frozen Footsteps
 
  • Foley Frozen Footsteps Play Track 2400 sounds included $49

    Prepare for shivers! Frozen Footsteps is a huge library of winter footstep & foley sounds recorded on 8 expressive and cold surfaces in real -20 °C (and below) temperatures.

    Containing over 2400 sounds in 81 files, Frozen Footsteps foley sfx library is created for game and film sound design. If your game needs winter footstep sounds, or you are missing some authentic source material to take your studio foley tracks to the next level, this is the library for you.

    All surfaces were recorded in real movement with multiple walking and running velocities. Frozen Footsteps library includes also real jumping and landings sounds. Jumping sounds are often missing from other foley libraries, but are extremely useful for creating character movement sounds for games. This package gets you covered.

    7 surfaces were recorded during two freezing winter nights in a quiet rural area in Finland. Everything from ground to trees was totally frozen and covered in frost. However, snow hadn’t fallen yet. This special moment allowed recording footsteps on unique surfaces that are usually under snowpack. To make the package complete, the frozen snow sounds were recorded later, with real crusty snow. In freezing temperatures, as well.

    All sounds were carefully edited in iZotope RX and Pro Tools 12 removing the background and clothing noise. This was quite a task, but it was worth it. This makes the sounds extremely clear, versatile, and easy to use.

    Library highlights:- 8 frozen surfaces
    – 2400+ sounds in 81 sound clips
    – Sneak, walk, run, jump, slide, scuffs, and more
    – 96 kHz, 24-bit stereo WAV files
