Cinescapes is the third and the last installment in the CINE series.
It is a collection of modern, cinematic, evolving, sequential soundscapes.
Cinescapes (Cinematic Soundscapes) is a library created with sound designers and gamedevs in mind.
It’s not just another “drone” library. Every soundscape is unique and has been mangled through both external outboard as well as
some top tier plugins. It’s sequential nature adds a sense of rhythm without making it take over the whole frequency range.
All soundscapes loop seamlessly for your convenience.
The collection consists of 20 carefully designed and rendered soundscapes with baked-in Soundminer’s metadata.
All sounds have been created and processed using top tier gear in order to deliver crisp, modern, error free sound.
Find out what Euro Rack Synths morphed with modern digital synths and foley field recordings sound like.

Want the sounds of Athens? The Athens Rooftop sound effects library delivers 9 long ambiences recorded from different perspectives, and at different times of day – from calm mornings to busy days and nights.
In order to capture Athens' soundscape in all its nuances, very low-noise Neumann Microphones and Sound Devices Recorders were used to record long takes (between 8 and 21 minutes each) totaling to over 2 hours of audio.
The recording location was a two floor rooftop on a three storey building above a very small street with no nearby traffic that allowed recording the city with some distance from above: Traffic, restaurants, bars, construction work, birds – in some evening recordings we hear crickets in the distance, in some day recordings the AC of a neighbouring flat is running.
Most of the recordings can also be used to represent a general city ambience, while some takes include specific regional sounds like Greek walla, churches and cicadas characteristic for the Greek capital.
Traffic and city atmospheres recorded from a balcony in Berlin at different times and weather conditions.
More than 130 minutes of ambiences included!
Human Vocalizations contains 1034 vocals sounds. A variety of: Attacking Groans, Battle Shouts, Death Screams, Painful Grunts, Various Efforts, Crying, Laughing and more. Both male and female voice actors.
ALL sounds from Human Vocalizations are included in our full sound package Pro Sound Collection. So if you need more sounds be sure to check it out before purchase.
This library gets you 130 minutes of stereo recordings from an intense off-road motorcycle racing event, captured on a late autumn day with ideal weather conditions.

What if we’ll take a shortwave radio receiver and turn its output into to a variety of sound effects?
The result will be not only be a set of dark, dirty, noisy and distorted effects, but also subtle, deep atmospheres and even some kind of melodic sounds!
This library is extremely versatile and not focusing on individual types of sound effects.
Here you’ll find distant radio transmissions, strange modulated voices, whine and static, but also designed atmospheres that can be used as interiors of spaceships, machinery or computer rooms, whooshes, passbys, textures, transformations, alien voices, stutters, morphing effects, granular clouds, risers, UI, impacts and much more that you may need when working with trailers, music, game sound or movies.
But that’s not all, as it turned out it’s even possible to make melodic sounds out of these noisy soundscapes!
Try this library and you’ll be happy to add such a unique audio source to your SFX arsenal!
– 457 sound effects and ambiences made from a eurorack shortwave radio receiver
– 70 raw source files included
– 96khz/24bit quality

The resulting spectrum is rich in low-end and has impressive dynamics. This could easily expand your sound toolkit with a great number of interesting elements and textures for any kind of SFX production: Movies, TV, trailers, game audio, electronic music and so on.
I picked up lots of wood, metal, plastic and many other objects (including bats on old attic) to record this library, which is divided into categories, like: bow, brush, debris, hit, hum, metal, ratchet, scrape, spin, water and etc.
All recordings were made at 96 kHz sample rate for further manipulation, and they’re categorized by source objects and contain metadata.

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

This library was built primarily using two different modular synthesizer systems. One based on the Korg MS-20 and the other based on the Pittsburgh Modular Lifeforms 201. Included in this library you will find various one shots and hits alongside longer evolving textures and drones. The library was created in a very non-musical way and as such most of what you hear is noisy, gritty and a-tonal. The library can be used effectively for Sci-Fi Weapons, User Interfaces, Droids and Robots, Ambient Textures and many more possibilities.
The Metal Hits, Scrapes and Squeaks library contains a variety of small to medium sized metal props with each material type including multiple performance variations.
Props include objects such as sheet metal, sledgehammers, paint cans, metal buckets, metal grating, metal marbles, cups, pots and pans, dry ice (contributing squeaks and squeals), metal bars, metal stands, chains and more.
All recordings were made in a studio or iso booth environment to produce a very clean sounding library. The library works perfectly as a construction or foley kit. Files included were recorded at 24bit/96kHz.
This library was derived entirely from material collected in the Metal Hits, Scrapes and Squeaks library. Each sound was meticulously crafted by hours of experimenting with different processing techniques. I created this library for fun and to in part showcase the flexibility of my metal recordings.
I spent a great deal of time exploring pitch manipulation with this library. Much of it relied on rendered processing to acquire the aesthetic that I wanted. My vision was to make something ethereal and vocal but also a bit vague.
I believe this library will provide excellent source material for a wide variety of applications. Both as stand-alone effects or layered in with other libraries/sounds to help create a dark/spooky aesthetic.
This library contains a large variety of ambiences and drones that stylized as industrial or science fiction. All of these files are derived from on location recording sites and carefully edited and crafted to create a large variety of unique sonic textures. Source material ranges from large industrial buildings, parking garages, utility rooms, air condition unites, fans, buzzing electrical components, analog synthesizers etc.
The Magic Spells, Buffs and Attacks library contains 507 total spell sounds. Each spell type has been thoughtfully named and crafted into multiple variations making them extremely flexible and easy to use. This library will work great for MMOs, RPGs and other fantasy style games. Of course, it will be great for film or any other form of media also! Many of these sounds are also well suited for Sci-Fi or Futuristic applications.
Bonus Reaktor Ensemble:
As if the sounds alone weren’t enough, we’re also including a special bonus in the form of a Native Instruments Reaktor Ensemble. We call it “The Mage”.. it is designed to allow you to take spell types, mash them together and create endless new iterations of material!
The Elevators library was recorded over a period of one year, and comes with over 100 movement and metal impacts from elevators, around 50 elevator cab travels and over 60 elevator door slides and variations.

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.
