New sound effects Asbjoern Andersen


The amount of new SFX releases has been incredible, so we’re splitting this recap into two: For this first one, we have new libraries ranging from cutting-edge virtual instruments to cosy European soundscapes.

You will find UI sounds that are bright and trickly and others that are modern and flexible. There are also whooshes of various textures and a collection that can be controlled like an instrument. Plus, there are sounds from Denmark’s less traveled alleyways, backyards and construction sites, a SFX subscription option, and sounds of zipping, growling motorcycles on a race track. Read on for all the details.

Raceday – Motorcycles
 
  • Motorcycles go fast – especially on the racetrack. Here we have the 300cc, 600cc, 1000cc and Moto 3 Classes recorded on the Hairpin Exit, Straight and Fast Turns, with riders going at it solo and some preferring a bit of group action. They sound fast and powerful, except maybe the Moto 3 class which sounds a little like a small prop plane.

    The library includes 90 recordings. All files are Sound Miner metadata embedded, 24Bit/48kHz wav files

'Raceday – Motorcycles' by Smackheads has sounds of speed on the race track. With a 300cc Yamaha R3, a Moto 3, and 600cc and 1000cc beasts, this library gives you the buzz, hum and growl of these bikes as they fly around the track. With 90 recordings, you will hear solo and group races as well as the twists of the track with a hairpin exit and fast turns. There are also many quick passbys, giving you sounds to create whooshes with an organic feel. If you need some power in your sound design, check this library out.
 
Tech Tech Tech Data
 
  • A library designed for fancy pants computer read-outs and jazzy interface buttons. All files are flawlessly loop-able so no matter how long that data needs to keep on flowing, you're covered. Plenty of different styles from classical digital sounds, to lighter, funnier readouts and even dangerously aggressive ones. It pretty much covers most situations.

    Add to cart
'Tech Tech Tech Data' by Smackheads has interesting new computer sounds to give some personality to your UI, machine, and buttons sounds. With bleeps and bloops that have all sorts of timbre and rhythms, these sounds will convince your audience whether your scenes are in the modern day or in the future. Plus, each sound is loopable for flexible interactive use. If you are looking for the digital sounds of data processing, this library is for you.
 
Ninety Nine Problems But A Whoosh Ain’t One
 
  • Everyone needs some good whooshing, but sometimes you just want a whoosh that will cut right through the crap. This pack does not contain earth moving cinematic slams, but rather crispy, bright, swishes, swooshes and whooshes designed for television, radio and internet use.

    We figured 99 whooshes was a good start to get you out of trouble, and we've provided a wide range of sounds, from nice clean wipes and slides to more complex textural sounds. Each file contains a single whoosh so you can grab the one you like and throw it on your timeline.

    All files are 24 bit / 48kHz .wav files and are Sound Miner metadata embedded. Enjoy!

    Update:

    99 Problems But A Whoosh Ain't One now comes with a bonus library of all 99 whooshes under the influence of various effects. From extreme manipulation to gentle reverbs the original library has been morphed into a different beast.
    Add to cart
'Ninety Nine Problems But A Whoosh Ain’t One' by Smackheads gives you 99 whooshes that are long, quick and medium-paced and feature a variety of textures. The library includes whooshes that are metallic, sharp, hollow, digital, industrial, and dark, as well as others that sound like ocean waves, vehicles passing by, and cloth. These professional sounds will pop out in your soundscape, and since each sound effect is on its own file, whooshes certainly won't be one of your ninety-nine problems.
 
Wave Warper
 
  • Want to design your own whoosh sound effects? Wave Warper is a revolutionary new way to create your own amazing custom whooshes, passbys, morphed sounds, and sample mayhem. It is a standalone app that combines and loops up to 6 sound file layers to create one new dynamic file using multiple real-time controllable effects and optional VST plugins.

    For years sound designers and musicians alike have had to painstakingly layer sounds within DAWs and create time consuming midi controlling scenes to create whoosh, doppler, and passby effects.

    Wave Warper takes advanced concepts and simplifies them into one quick, fun, and intuitive software. It is incredibly addictive to use, and produces sounds like you've never heard before.

    Wave Warper features:

    • Load up to 6 sound files
    • Load up to 10 VST plugins within Wave Warper
    • Real-time user controlled XY pad allows you to 'perform' Wave Warper
    • Pitch, volume, panning, and filtering defined envelopes follow along in real-time
    • Randomizes your sound library folders to quickly generate new sounds
    • Sine, triangle and square LFOs
    • Wind and whistle generators
    • 2 compressors
    • 9 filter settings that follow along in real-time
    • Volume fluctuation on each file for creating dynamic sounds per layer
    • Leap Motion control option. Leap Motion sold separately here
    • Reverb
    • Compatible with Mac and PC (32 bit and 64 bit)

    System Requirements:

    An Intel® Mac with Mac OS X 10.7 (or later), OR a PC with Windows 7 (or later); Multicore processor; 2 GB RAM; 1024×768 display.

    Add to cart
'Wave Warper' is a standalone whoosh library tool for Mac and PC with 10 VSTs, 2 compressors, 9 filters, randomization, reverb, and more. This tool can be intuitively 'played' by users with an XY pad or a Leap Motion control and allows real-time control over pitch, volume, panning and filtering. Plus, it offers MIDI control for Doppler and passby effects, and you can even load your own SFX and VST plugins. For a tool that takes sound design and SFX to the next level, who else would create such a cool tool than SoundMorph?

  • Mechanical Old Engines Grab Bag Play Track 486 sounds included, 265minutes of multitrack recordings mins total $129 $99

    “Old Engines Grab Bag” is a pack of numerous old, unique and characterful engines from early 1900s. It’s a massive collection of 56GB multitrack 192kHz recordings of old tractors and stationary engines, both diesel and gasoline fueled.

    The intention wasn’t to cover vehicles driving, but to get isolated and very closely recorded mechanical elements of engines and exhaust pipes as a source material for sound design. There are many starts, idles, revs, offs, RPMs variations, backfires etc. Some are heavy and large sounding, some are small and funny. Tractors were captured EXT and most of stationary engines INT, but since they are very closely recorded there is just a little amount of reverb on most of them.

    Most of engines are 1 or 2 cylinders and low horse power and their RPMs are also low. Thanks to this, many of those sounds aren’t tonal and can easily be used as additional layer with other design elements. They work great for adding vintage character, designing junky or funny vehicles, crazy huge steampunk machines or engines malfunction.

    Sounds were recorded using multi-mic setup: Sanken CO-100k (most of the time pointing mechanical parts), Sennheiser MKH-8060 (mainly for isolated exhaust pipe), Schoeps CMC6XT mk41/mk8 (general image) and part also with Trance Audio Inducer contact mics (adding unique mechanical perspective).

    The library is delivered as multitrack 192kHz files, as well as stereo mix of all microphones. Thanks to using microphones with extended frequency range, drastic pitch changes can be applied.
    All files have extensive metadata created in Soundminer, including leg picker with microphone labels.

    Demo files include pitched sounds, which are not delivered with library.
