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:
CAUTION: This library contains the HIGHEST resolution fart winds that exist on this side of the internet… Well, let’s be real, all sides of the internet!
Containing 1000 individual pristine 192kHz 24bit farts, you will never need another fart sample again. These winds were recorded using an ultra high resolution microphone which is capable of capturing frequency content up to and beyond 30kHz, so you can hear every nasty detail in these butt wrenching blows! This also means that when sound designers need to modify, tweak or change pitch, they can do so without worry of any loss in resolution.
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.

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.
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:

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).

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.
