‘Nightlife’ is an collection of authentic nightclub based crowd ambiences, professionally recorded over an entire evening outside a busy and popular nightlife location in London.
This unique library captures audible moments beginning with a few small groups of revellers, excitable but sober as they arrive for their evening out. Then the ambiences journey through to the earlier hours of the next morning and throwing out time, when larger crowds emerge louder, looser and perhaps drunker than before.
These expressive tracks perfectly capture the atmosphere of a night evolving, featuring genuine nightlife walla and including ‘spot’ type effects of reactions such as; whoops, shouts, cheers and screams.
All sounds in the ‘Nightlife’ SFX pack have been recorded in high-quality 24bit, 96kHz using Sound Devices recorders and DPA microphones. In addition, each individual file has been tagged with detailed Soundminer metadata to speed up workflow and increase organisation.
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.
