Mexican Seaside is a unique Mid-Side collection of ocean sounds gathered during the summer of 2017 in the Yucatán Peninsula – Mexico. It contains sandy and rocky beach ambient sounds, with no human activity. These sounds were recorded at sunrise (on various days) with a Zoom H6 on a Joby GorillaPod and a MS capsule (MSH-6) covered by a Rycote Mini Windjammer. Mid-side allows you to actually adjust the width of the stereo image after it has been recorded. It provides total mono compatibility for recordings that may eventually be played back in mono, such as TV broadcasts.
The package contains a MS-RAW folder plus a LR folder with all the files decoded to stereo for quick use.
100% of “Mexican Seaside” SFX library purchases will be donated to UNICEF México.
Articulated presents here a careful collection of 100 Electric Fans, HVAC, AHU, and Mechanical Drones. After months of capture, we recorded, selected, and edited this unique library featuring rich, varied, and useful assets ready-to-use for any game or movie project.
These sounds can serve to inspire life inside environments, provide industrial tones, domestic houses, or back alleys, setting moods or atmospheres. They can also serve as elements to design mechanical machine or engine sounds.
The sonic quality extends a large spectrum from clean, modern, to old and rusty, on rooftop, indoor, flush ceiling-mounted, Bathroom extractor, or floor stand; along with many flavours like metal, plastic, smooth or raspy rattles with gurgling wobbles. Some of the Sounds have useful varied point of perspectives (Close-up, distance), and most of them are ‘loopable’.
124 stereo files
Highly focused and meticulously edited sounds
Different perspectives are included as well
‘FOUNTAINS’ gets you 100 pristine stereo recordings of various fountain sizes, types, and perspectives (including 15 hydrophone recordings). Each file is between 40 sec and 2 min long, mono compatible, and is fully loopable, ready to be used in any project.
Over a period of one year, I recorded various fountains from different perspectives and distances – and even underwater. And, as with every sound library from Articulated Sounds, the files are embedded with metadatas (Soundminer/iXML/XMP/BWAV/ID3).
So if you need the sound of fountains (or simply the sound of water), this library delivers nearly two hours of excellent, ready-to-use recordings:
This library gets you atmospheric ambiences from all over the world; from the UK, Greece, Spain, Morocco to Germany and America – and includes cities like Jerusalem, Las Vegas and many more. The recordings have been captured on land, at sea and in the air – and with over 6 hours of ambiences in total, 101 Ambiences offers a wealth of material for your projects.
A collection of shots fired using a 12 Gauge Remington 870 Wingmaster shotgun. This library also includes a few bonus tracks of shots fired using a Thompson Rifle muzzleloader and a Barnett Crossbow.
Discover the obscure sounds of 24 film cameras designed between the 1930s and 1970s. Carefully organised into 159 files, the 20th Century Cameras library offers over 3900+ sounds recorded at pristine 24bit/96kHz, thus allowing you to not only use the mechanical sounds of the cameras for their intended purpose, but also for sound design.
In order to help you navigate through the plethora of sounds available, rich SoundMiner metadata has been carefully crafted in order to describe the sounds as simply as possible, using multiple keywords and terms, where needed.
The library contains mostly mechanical sounds, such as the sound of shutter release at different shutter speeds, knobs, latches, wheels, and more, in addition to some Foley sounds as well. Due to the age of the cameras, most of the shutter release sounds have slight variations between them, even at the same shutter speed.
An update for the library is on its way, which will include the sound of a few different types of camera film being unwrapped, handled and installed into cameras. The update will be free for the people that have already purchased the library.
The library also comes with a free eBook which can be viewed and downloaded here.
In addition to the SoundMiner metadata sheet down below, the eBook provides information as to how older cameras work, and more details as to how each of the cameras recorded for the library work. The book goes into a fair bit of detail as to what sounds each camera offers, without getting too technical.
If you would like to hear more, here is a slightly extended version of the video preview:
A hand-picked collection of two hundred and twenty two sound effects – previously gathered and distributed over the year via a subscription system from Immersive FX called the Dollar Deals. Now you can get them all in one complete collection.
Features everything from crowds, birds, clocks, insects, fireworks to ferries, trains and much more.
This sound collection covers a wide range of sounds produced by this unique racing (kit)car from 1991. The engine is custom built and is a combination of elements of a Citroën 2CV engine and a Citroën Visa engine.

Do you want to make a robot or some other mechanical object sound unique? Or do you need high class heavy mechanical motor or servo sounds for layering purposes?
The 3D Printer library is a collection of high quality motor, servo and mechanical movement sounds that can help you make a nice looking robot sound like a mean killing machine. The library is also a great and affordable way to add uniqueness to your sound effects.
The library was recorded with two sets of microphones: A stereo pair of JrF C-series contact microphones were used to capture the more delicate inner sounds of the printer while a stereo pair of Sennheiser MKH8040 microphones recorded the more raw outer sound of the mechanical motor movements.
You get the sounds in two formats: 96 KHz 24 bit and in 44.1 KHz 16 bit, for more convenient ways of utilizing the sounds in games and other media.
Get the sounds of a Printrbot 3D printer – with four NEMA 14 stepper motors -, in this interesting SFX library by New Sound Lab.
The high torque motors connected to a pulley system control the X-Y-Z movements of the aluminum extruder and metal print bed. When printing three-dimensional objects, these fast and precise movements result in a unique barrage of percussive and rhythmic mechanical noise.
These sounds were captured using three different recording setups: Barcus Berry contact mics, RF coils, and combined contact mic / RF coil into a Sound Devices 702 recorder.
The resulting sounds are a mix of grainy, gritty atonal patterns, robotic percussive bleeps, glitchy digital beeps/clicks, low fidelity drones, and chaotic noise. Both raw recordings, and processed elements are included and ready for further sound manipulation.
3Dimensional Printing is the multicolored result of different recording sessions of a couple of 3D printers (the Sharebot NG – Next Generation and the DeltaWASP 20 40) at Fabb and at FabLab Milan between 2014 and 2015.
All the sounds were recorded directly as uncompressed .wav files through both a RME Fireface UCX and a Zoom H6 Portable Recorder.
Duration ranges vary from 1 to 5 minutes, with the most sonically interesting excerpts from full printing cycles. Lots of pattern and sequences are available for selection and transformation.
Five different transducers were chosen to capture all the sonic details of these mechanisms:
– C-SERIES pro contact microphones, hand-made by Jez Riley French;
– Barcus Berry 4000 Planar Wave System (Piezo crystal sensor+4000XL Piezo Preamp);
– Piezo Film Tab Contact Microphones by Cold Gold Audio;
– Custom Induction Coil Pick-up (also used to create the Unseen Noises collection);
– Zoom MSH-6 MS Capsule (the stereo image of the Mid-Side recordings is rendered as balanced stereo LR files).
Bring the monsters to life! Bestial roars, screams and murmurs of 6 bizarre creatures. From brutal, deep growls to sharp, ear-pearcing screeches.

Abandoned Shelters – The Danish Bunker Coast features mysterious and eerie sounds recorded in and around abandoned bunkers along the Danish West Coast.
The gathered ambiences form a comprehensive resource of steady winds, heavy gusts, rustling undergrowths as well as single waves and strong surfs that constantly stream and break through these inhospitable areas with concrete remains all around.
A big part of the library was recorded inside the bunkers where the strong nature elements of wind and water are transformed into heavily comb filtered textures and dark atmospheres.
Finding the right door sound can be a pain, thus Abandoned Doors was recorded with that need in mind.
All the 1400+ sounds were recorded in abandoned mansions and houses with unique sonic characteristics, in stereo, usually from two perspectives (inside the room and in the hallway), allowing you a great deal of choice and offering sonic diversity.
Additionally, splitting the stereo tracks into mono will give you two more slightly different perspectives on each sound.
The Abandoned Doors library offers a multitude of door recordings, ranging from heavy wooden doors found in turn of the century mansions to cheap old doors in an abandoned warehouse, being opened, closed, slammed, knocked on, kicked, banged on, and even hit with a bat.
Whilst most door libraries simply name files ‘door open 01’, etc, Abandoned Doors has been carefully tagged with rich SoundMiner metadata and multiple keywords, giving you a clearer image of what a file contains just by reading the title. For more information on what kinds of sounds are present in the library, feel free to consult the metadata file down below.
Also, if you’d like to know more about how I recorded this library, read my blog post here.

Whilst the Augmentation Elements library arms you with tools such as whooshes, risers and stings, allowing you to sweeten specific elements of your sound design, the Aberrant Drones library allows you to augment the mood of an entire scene. Each audio file is populated with richly descriptive SoundMiner metadata, making it easier than ever before to sift through hours of abstract drones.
This is why the metadata is usually described in terms of feeling and mood, like so:

With A Sound Effect, Asbjoern has created a web site where our international community can browse, learn, and share the vast fruits of our labors. Together we are accelerating the very real potential power of sound design as a recognized art form.
A Sound Effect is an excellent resource for us to keep our animated films sounding unique and exciting.
A Sound Effect is a great asset to have discovered.
We found the site very easy to navigate, purchasing and downloads were effortless and the effects themselves are awesome! Asbjoern has done us all a great service.
We’ll definitely be back!
There are many great independent sound effect libraries available these days. The main problem with having so many, is keeping track of them!
A Sound Effect is a great hub, and is one of the first places I visit to look for sounds by category or genre. I started coming here to see if I could find libraries that I knew I had heard, but forgot WHERE I had heard them.
And in the process discovered libraries I never would have found otherwise. Great work! Keep it up!
A Sound Effect is a great resource for keeping up on what's out there in the SFX library world. The site is well organized and it's easy to find stuff.
I love the behind the scenes articles - and the ability to purchase directly through the site is super convenient. The process is very straight forward and painless. I recommend it all the time.
We're always looking for new sounds to mangle, so when A Sound Effect had a holiday sale, I tried them out.
The purchase experience is really smooth and quick, and delivery is almost instant.
I'll definitely come back to them again in the future!
A Sound Effect is a wonderful resource for indie sound effects libraries. On top of that, it has some of the finest sound design, film and game audio interviews!
I often need very specific types of sounds so I've become a big supporter of independent recorders.
Until now I've always had to go to their individual websites. Now I can find them all in one place.
And, Asbjoern is great to work with!
A Sound Effect is a well curated boutique sound effects shop and a great place to find industry interviews and learning resources.
