This week we have sounds that travel far and others that focus on intricate design. You can find libraries that feature the beaches of the French Normandy or the busy streets of the Las Vegas Strip. We also have small wooden, plastic and metal mechanisms, as well as powerful armored infantry fighting machines. Finally, check out synthesized sounds modeled after lasers and force fields and experimental sounds extracted from frozen H2O. Whether you’re seeking a physical or designed world, there are many unique libraries to hear this week!
Sounds & Ambiences of Las Vegas
Vegas may be the place of both high hopes and utter defeat, but once you step away from the excitement and just listen, the city has some truly unique sounds. 'Sounds & Ambiences of Las Vegas'
by WW Audio
captures the buzz as well as the calm with two and a half hours that will fill your ambient needs. You can hear sounds on the strip with indistinct voices in hotels, arcades and restaurants, the melding of nature and nightlife with crickets and street performers, and beeps and boops of traffic, as well as areas far from Sin City with ambiences of the Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon and even thousands of feet in the air in a helicopter ride. If you need sounds from this notorious city, check out this library.
Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle
'Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle'
is a specialized library like no other. This collection by Hammer & Spark Audio Production
features an Infantry Fighting Vehicle complete with all its intimidating bells and whistles. Sounds include turret movements, hatch operations, onboard switches, hydraulics, and plenty of engine sounds as the vehicle starts up, idles, and crushes the various terrain below it. With over 150 files and four hours of content, you can easily flesh out this fighting machine in your film or game, whether to simulate modern combat or protect the multiverse. For the unmistakable sounds of a military IFV, look no further.
by Solar Audio
is an experimental library based on our favorite frozen liquid. These sounds of ice have been mangled and distorted beyond recognition to give their 'essence' through textures and moods for otherworldly experiences. These sounds crackle, tear, shatter, evolve, excite, glitch, and emote, imitating both living things like aliens and insects and instruments such as bells and horns. These sounds are designed to be used straight out of the box; however, don't think they won't inspire you to play with their 192kHz sample rate—or see what new effects you can achieve in your own recordings! If you are looking for an experimental or design inspiration, give this library a listen.
by Breakup Audio
is a small pack dedicated to plasmic whooshes, telemetric notifications, and loads of lasers and force fields. These sounds power up, power down, evolve, tear across the atmosphere, and blast toward your enemies with all their swirling, neon glory. You also receive several variations of each sound for a library of over 270 sounds ready to be dropped into your project. If you need a library that packs a lot of synthesized punch for its modest price, this is one you should listen to.
has nearly an hour of sounds from the peaceful and romantic shores of Sardinia and the French Normandy. This library focuses on the lonelier atmospheres of these beaches with sounds of light waves lapping on rocks, small flocks of seagulls looking for food, children playing and distant people vacationing, motorboats passing by, water streams lapping toward undertows, and much more. Each file ranges from one minute to nearly five minutes, giving you multiple loop points for your ambient soundscapes. If you want your audience to wish summer would never end, check out this library.
is a sound library full of mechanisms created by various elements—from metal and wood to glass and marble. It has little machines with squeaky wooden teeth that roll and rattle, metal chains, plastic spinning wheels, scraping aluminium, and marble balls winding in glass bowls. As a collection of over 150 uniques sounds, you will also receive sounds of analog cameras, antique coffee grinders, cranks, air releases and much more. If you are looking for intricate sounds of complex contraptions that go beyond the typical metal machines, this is the library for you.
