From a real chocolate factory, we recorded specific sounds and ambiences.
Included different mechanical sounds and manipulation, captured through various perspectives.
This surreal time of COVID-19 and global lockdowns has inspired me to experiment with previously recorded urban soundscapes.
City streetscapes have been stretched and manipulated to create eerie, foreboding drones to create a sense of desolation.
Stay healthy and stay safe.

FundamentalDoors aims to be a library that is fundamental to any door-related audio assets that are required. Whilst it isn’t a complete ‘one for all’ solution, it is a good choice for the amount of content that is contained within the library. It is a strong start or a great addition to any door library as a construction kit.
Each sausage file has 0.1s of silence between each sound which can be strip silenced for GameAudio purposes.
Categories in the library include: Door Opens, Closes, Slams, Creaks, Handle Turns, Handle Rattles, Handle Pulls, Bangs, Knocks, Hits, ‘Sneaking’ & more.
FundamentalDoors can also be used for sound design due to its high quality assets, which are perfect for any impacts / textures / stretching / pitching that marry well with other content.
Recordings of a potato gun made of PVC tubes (one barrel connected to a combustion chamber) and using hair spray for combustion. Shots are triggered manually by a lighter producing a sparkle in the combustion chamber.

This library is great to quickly place samples for rolling objects but also a never ending collection of source sounds & textures for all things releated to rolling, rumbling, driving, rotating and spinning.
I wanted to cover a lot of grounds, so I have objects rolling on grass, cobblestone, concrete, tar, wood, steel, plastic, carpet …
and these objects include cars, bikes, balls, skateboards, stones, push carts, tires, garbage cans, a buggy, a wheelchair and much more.
In addition, there are a lot of sounds in here I already used for designing otherworldy atmos or futuristic weapons, so lots of options here.
Most sounds are mono recordings with the mic following (or being attached to) the object. But there is also a section with bypass sounds in stereo and some onboard recordings in stereo. And not only the onboard of a car without motor rolling across different types of cobblestone, but also mics attached inside a garbage can which then was rolled through the streets.
This library contains my go-to sounds for all things rolling and most sounds have been recorded in 192kHz/24bit with Earthworks QTC50 mics to allow a maximum pitch / slowing down action. As the library evolved and grew over different years, a broad range of mics have been used. DPA 4060s, DPA 4061, Shure SM 57, JrF Contact C Series, Neumann KMR 81i, Ambient Emesser and on a few recordings I used other sample rates like 96/24 or 48/24.

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!
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.
