Cicadas is a collection of summer ambiences recorded in Southern Spain over the course of 2018 summer. You will get massive chorus in different densities and areas, individual chirps, and a designed section.
The temperatures during this time of the year are so high, ranging from 30ºC to 45ºC (86ºF to 113ºF), that cicadas are always present in daytime. The higher the temperatures, the more cicadas chirp. Having this in mind, some recordings from early June have less cicadas than the ones recorded in July and August. In addition to this, there are recordings both in the morning, where the cicadas are not so many but are already present, and in the evening, chirping all of them as a chorus after a whole day under the sun. The library contains:
All files come in 96 kHz / 24 bit and with embedded metadata, both in Soundminer and BWAV.
Featuring more than 250 minutes of cicadas recordings plus 65 minutes from the Designed Section.
This library is a collection of 60 Sci-Fi atmospheres, all loop seamlessly, which can be used to represent alien worlds, drones ambiences, spacecrafts, futuristic engines, nuclear facilities, celestial spaces, generators, dark elements and from outer space. Mainly inspired by the Alien saga.
Each file has a duration of one minute with subtle changes over time. Ideal sounds to use as a layer in your sound design or for those project where music and sound design are pretty close.
Files have been designed on the basis of two different TVs buzzing, making a total of 32 buzz files, which have also been included in the collection. Calibrated to -24 LUFS. You can experiment with them to create more sounds, or use them as what they are, a TV buzz.
All files come in 96 kHz/24 bit, with a very descriptive metadata, based on what the sounds represent and which kind of feeling and mood they suggest to the listener.
Soundcloud preview includes all the designed sounds.

We all know what central London sounds like. It’s noisy, crowded, and full of people trying to sell you watches. Ok, maybe that last point wasn’t that relevant, but have you ever wondered what lies beyond?
A short drive towards the suburbs will reveal a world filled with warm beer, cricket, and endless parks, where deer roam free.
When planning this library, the intention was to capture the quieter side of the metropolis, all year round! As a result, this library will receive multiple updates over the coming months. There will be one more summer update soon, along with an autumn update, winter update, and spring update.
So far, the first version of the library contains 15 .WAV stereo files at 96kHz/24 bit, recorded with a Sony PCM-D100/1, and contains approximately 35 minutes of summer ambiances in different locations throughout suburban London. Over the following months, I’ll keep traveling around the suburbs, collecting more and more ambiances, each update representing its own season.
Each file has been carefully edited in iZotope RX in order to remove as much unwanted noise as possible, such as random shouting, barking, etc. This will provide you with clean ambiences that will add character to your projects, without distracting the audience. That being said, do please note that the recordings contain some amount of traffic noise, and some also contain airplane noise. This is, of course, unavoidable when recording in a city such as London.
In addition to that, each file has been filled to the brim with SoundMiner metadata, allowing you to quickly search through the files, waste less time and dedicate more time to what you love doing!

Wilderness Americas : Amazon Rainforest is a collection of sounds captured in the West part of the Amazon basin (El Oriente) across 3 South American countries : Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia.
This library focuses on the wildlife and wilderness sounds of the Amazon rainforest/jungle.
Reaching the Amazon region is not easy and need many resources and time.
Also the weather conditions are very bad for people and audio equipment: Extreme humidity, rain and heat don't work great with microphones and recorders.
We have selected audio gear specifically for this purpose: Tropicalized microphones : sennheiser MKH 8020 and MKH 30 series in a surround configuration + a world-renowned recorder : Sound devices Mixpre 10T. We also brought a humidity-proof microphone basket (Cinela)
This weather-proof setup permitted us to record even under strong tropical rain. (We have also a special mic cover which reduces the sound of raindrops on the microphone basket)
We have always focused on places where they protect and respect the “Selva” (Forest), especially places like National Parks, Research Stations or community places.
-> We went recording in these places: Madidi National Park (BOLIVIA), Podocarpus National Park (Ecuador), “Jatun Sasha” biological station (Ecuador),
The forest around the Rio Napo (an affluent connection to the amazon river) (Ecuador), the “Reserva de Produccion Faunistica Cuyabeno” (Ecuador), and the region around Mocoa, between Santa Rosa Canyon and the Paway Reserva (Colombia).
We used “sound trap” technics for long and immersive recordings: We hid microphones and protected recorders in a waterproof bag and let it sit for days and nights in the middle of the rainforest (usually 24 hours of non-stop recording).
This system allowed us to record the sunrise, dawn chorus, and sunset – times where the animals are more active.
Here is some animals we have recorded :
Exotics Birds and more, especially parrots, parakeet, cuckoo, Oro Pendulo, cacique, magpie, etc.
Insects and more, especially crickets, cicadas, mosquitos, flies, etc.
Mammal : Amazonian flying squirrel, spider monkeys, and howler monkeys
Amphibians: Frogs, toads
Each sound recording are tagged with GPS coordinates and full Soundminer metadata.
-The Full sound bank (Stereo + Surround/Ambisonic) contains 117 sound takes recorded in 24/96khZ (Total length : 566 minutes) and decline in 351 files
Ambience library recorded in Marrakech, Essaouira, and the Agafay Desert. Birds, insects, wind, foliage, market/souk, prayer, etc. Recorded at 96kHz stereo/binaural.
The Forest Ambience 1 library focuses on the ambient sounds of Central Florida’s forest ecology. The focus of this library is a collection of as much general background ambience as possible with minimal focus on any one individual element. It also focuses on a Mid Day – Early Dusk time frame.
The range of ambiences include windy gusts through thick canopies, forests alive with birds and bugs, and erie dead silences void of any life recorded near one of the nation’s largest active bombing ranges. Also included are a few plane flyovers and some outdoor trail ambience near an apartment complex as a bonus.
Captured in environments such as:
• Bottomland hardwoods
• Pine Flatwoods
• Upland hardwoods
• Urban nature trail
