11 new sound libraries Asbjoern Andersen


This week on A Sound Effect, we have eleven new libraries that bring you high-energy impacts, detailed ambiences, and interesting sonic ingredients.

We have creepy libraries that top off the Halloween season with ghostly voices and a collection for horror games.

We also have cars from the opposite ends of the loudness spectrum with growling V8 engines and a quiet, earth-friendly electric car, plus three new packs of Foley – footsteps, armor hits, and body impacts – and ambiences from churches and hotels.

Finally, if you’re looking for dramatic cinematic action, be sure to check out a Dunkirk-inspired clock library and a compilation of hard-hitting, climatic sci-fi sounds. Happy listening!

Electric Vehicles vol. 2: BMW i3

'Electric Vehicles vol. 2: BMW i3' by Morten Green Sound FX delivers 162 minutes of stereo recordings of the BMW i3 B-class, high-roof hatchback electric vehicle.
 
  • Cars Electric Vehicles vol. 2: BMW i3 Play Track 211 sounds included, 162 mins total $60 $40.20

    Looking for electric car sounds? This library delivers 211 files / 162 minutes of stereo recordings of the BMW i3 electric vehicle.

    The BMW i3 is a B-class, high-roof hatchback manufactured and marketed by BMW with an electric powertrain using rear wheel drive via a single-speed transmission. Its underfloor Li-ion battery pack is offered in two capacities as well as with an optional range-extending gasoline engine. The i3 was BMW's first mass-produced zero emissions vehicle and was launched as part of BMW's electric vehicle sub-brand, BMW i.

    As of December 2016, the i3 ranked as the world's third best selling all-electric car in history with more than 65,000 units sold since its inception.

    This very quiet car has been recorded using onboard DPA-4060 microphones, to capture the engine and tyre sounds. The different surfaces are gravel, asphalt and rumble strips on the highway. The interior sounds have been recorded using the Zoom H5 XY microphone. There are also contact mic recordings of the wheel housing using Schaller mics.

    Passby sounds have been recorded using Line Audio CM3's in an XY setup as well as the Zoom H5 XY microphone. There are passes on dry and wet asphalt as well as gravel at different speeds.

    Finally the engine has been recorded using the Elektrosluch electromagnetic microphone, resulting in 33 minutes of electromagnetic madness in 96 kHz.

    I sincerely hope you will find this sound archive useful!

    Best,

    Morten

  • Wind Elements – Interior is 75 minutes/2.43 Gb of howling, blasting and fluttering wind, recorded from inside various buildings. 90 separate files – recorded in 24bit/96kHz using Sennheiser MKH & Primo EM172 microphones, and mastered in X/Y stereo.
    This collection is the bigger, badder sequel to bestseller Howling Winds – Interior, with more of everything: fresh recordings, more types of wind, more locations and just more variation.

    Everything from violent blasting and howling, to gentle, caressing wind. Some with sleet and rain, cracking and creaking of window frames and roof materials, others with faint sound of rustling leaves or urban buzz.

    You get both long ambiances from various locations, as well as plenty of short files to sweeten up your mix.
    Some sounds have been eq'ed aggressively to enhance the feeling of being indoors, but very little processing has been applied otherwise. You'll hear a bit of hiss here and there; I left it in because I felt noise reduction would take away too much character in those specific cases.

    You get:

    • Indoor wind sounds
    • Howling, blasting, fluttering – a bit of sleet & rain too
    • Lots of variations of each sound
    • Searchable file names
    • BWF Metadata embedded – with more included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats
