Signal Interference contains 40 feedback loops generated from a no-input mixer, each running for 1 minute for a total of 40 minutes of audio corruption. These unique sonic textures feature crackles, hums, buzzes and glitches to suit a wide array of multimedia projects which require the sounds of malfunctioning machinery, twisted signals and future tech gone wrong.
All files are 24 Bit/96 kHz with embedded metadata.
This Sound Effects library contains 633 files that feature over 1000 sounds of unsettling and unpleasant squeaking and creaking elements. It’s a great starting point for designing a vast number of different soundscapes in various genres – from just using the sounds as general Hard Effects, to Science Fiction and Horror.
All sounds are production ready: Cleaned, Edited, levelled, and come with embedded BWF Metadata.
You get heavy doors and furniture creaks, screaming dry ice, creaking leather, rubber and balloons, forks on ceramic tablets, disturbing metal squeaks and much more.
Woodwork is a collection of high quality recordings of various machinery found in a workshop, including fret saws, sanders, dryers and a milling machine. The pack contains both stereo and mono recordings of each item, made with the XY and shotgun microphones. All sounds are 24-bit, 48 kHz, with Soundminer metadata embedded.
When recording and collecting sound effects, you end up with a lot of noise: Microphone hits, Plosives, Wind pops, rattles, drops. Just plain noise.
These unwanted orphan sounds often get deleted, or end up in a some forgotten folder. Then sometimes you need a sound. A timbre that you just can't name. A raw sound that though manipulation, can become new and remarkable. That's what this SFX library is: Raw, dirty, short sounds that in the right hands – your hands – have potential. Raw Noise features 40 HD 24bit/96khz compilation tracks with a large selection of Hits, pops, plosives and transient sounds, ready for manipulation.
Most of the sounds are short, a second or two. Organized into loose categories to encourage new discoveries and new possibilities. The demo track features selections of the tracks, so you can hear the sounds as they are presented.

Berlin Ambiances I is 114 minutes/3,69 GB of pure Berlin in 31 separate files – recorded mostly in 24bit/96kHz quasi-binaural stereo, with Primo EM172 omni capsules.
This collection contains stealth recordings of various Berlin locations, including a good deal of train sounds and, well, Berliners!
I went to locations such as the Bodemuseum (crazy natural reverbs), the Hauptbanhhof (enormous, diffuse train station-ambiance) and Haus der Kulturen der Welt (great restaurant vibe and busy foyer). All this captured during January 2015, with a head-worn set of near- or quasi-binaural microphones.
Why quasi? Because the microphone elements are not entirely behind the Pinna (that thing protruding in front of the ear-canal), which means the true, 3-dimensional binaural experience isn't there. In this setting, my head shadow acted more like a Schneider disc or such, which means these recordings should translate better to speakers than, say, a Neumann dummy head. Btw: the non-binaural recordings were done in October 2013, using just my Sony PCM M10 recorder.
All in all, a collection of useful ambiances for your next Berlin-esque project.
Ah, destruction sound effects! We tried to feature every aspect of devastation in our brand-new SFX library DESTRUCTION which will be the baton for your own destructive masterpiece. Start with a small car crash where crushed metal meets hard rock. Imagine the fateful sound of a stressed glass pane right before it bursts into pieces. Think bigger – like a wooden cabin that gets smashed under a falling tree. Think of collapsing skyscrapers that crumble into dust. A whole ship moaning and groaning before it bursts and breaks into pieces – your possibilities are countless.
With DESTRUCTION, we deliver you the perfect toolkit to easily design those kind of scenarios. The CONSTRUCTION KIT holds more than 7 GB high-quality source recordings and the DESIGNED version comes with 300+ pre-designed, “ready to use” sounds. The BUNDLE not only allows full flexibility, but also gives you a benefit in price. Leave your audience gasping for air and take them right into the center of DESTRUCTION.

Looking for real fart sounds? ‘Fifty Shades Of Brown’ by WW Audio features 50 disgusting, comedic, and 100% genuine real farts. Great for comedy, pantomimes, or any time your project simply calls for a bit of flatulence.
rOtation is a sound effects library built for sound design centered around things that spin. It contains nearly 200 exceptional sounds and is the first of its kind. If you’re looking for brand new sound design source material, rOtation is the ticket.
Several months of research and recording has led to this very unique collection. It’s props range from ball bearings to trash cans; magnets to fireworks; water to nuts – all in the realm of rotation.
It contains sounds of things that have never been included in a sound effects library before: The sound of a Euler’s Disk speeding up exponentially fast – the whir and chatter of Hurricane balls spinning to 5000+ RPM – Nuts and quarters zipping and buzzing by in a rumbling balloon – The power of neodymium magnets bending the tones of vibrating glass.
Need insanely powerful engine sounds? Here's the Hot Rod SFX library – and those V8 engines are really in a class of their own. Those gurgling, deeply growling power plants are fascinating when in idle mode. But when the pedal hits the metal, they unleash a raw symphony of pure and brutal power – a true pleasure for sound lovers and for those who are willing to feed those big block engines with gallons and gallons of fuel. Having captured those incomparably sounding monsters we now bring you the finest selection of their sounds in our Micro BOOM SFX Library HOT ROD – REV UPS.
We recorded various close and distant idle and rev up sounds of 14 different Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Rat Rods and Trucks in an MS and ORTF setup. The library weighs in at 880MB in 64 files and it ships in 96kHz/24bit High Definition Audio. All sounds are royalty free, guaranteeing you best quality as always.
Let this pack be a small but powerful addition to your personal sound FX library and you will never have to search again for vigorous and shamelessly boasting engine rev up sounds.
Money is just over 21 Mb of coins and notes/bills being handled. You get 34 files in 24bit/96kHz quality.
This collection contains sounds of coins being handled, counted, poured, dropped – in hands, on tables and in a cash register drawer. There are also a few sounds of bills/notes/paper money being handled and counted. The whole thing was recorded in the studio, meaning a nice, dry sound to build on. The coins and bills used were a mixture of various international currency.
Audiobeast is proud to present our first sample library; the first library of its kind to focus entirely on weapons being fired in interior spaces!
The London Warehouse Weapons Library contains over 6 GBs of weapons being fired in a large warehouse, medium warehouse, stairwell, office and small room. 291 WAV files all recorded at 96 khz 24 bit, with heaps of information on microphones used and distance from the firearms.
Various distances were captured, from the DPA4062 on the guns themselves, to the distant other end of the warehouse 50 metres away. To add, some mics were positioned behind doors and walls to capture the occluded gunfire.
As well as all the firing we've included all the foley as well, because while convolution reverb is great, nothing beats actual content!
Minimal cleanup on the recordings was carried out very carefully by Steve Whetman in his room at Pinewood Studios, so as not to introduce any artefacts into the recordings, they are presented as raw as possible.
Due to safety restrictions it was not possible to fire the bigger weapons in the smaller spaces, the ceiling was shaking while recording the Assault Rifle in the office and stairwell and came close to collapsing. Physically the Browning M2 .50 calibre Machine Gun would not even fit on the stairwell or in the small room.
‘Tropical Ambiences’ delivers 52 pure, immersive tropical soundscapes, meticulously collected from each subset of tropical ecosystems in extremely-bio-diverse Central America.
It includes rainforests (jungle), cloudforests, dry forests, mangroves, and many other settings.
Recorded at different times of the day and spanning diverse range of weather conditions with various scale of rain and wind forces, this sound pack provides access to a complete array of wild tropical soundscapes.
Each of the 52 files is a careful selection of 1 to 4 minutes high-quality binaural stereo ambiences.
It has been precisely produced so that each track is able to LOOP in a seamless manner allowing for the ambience to last as long as desired, and the files are embedded with metadata (Soundminer/iXML/XMP/BWAV/ID3). The metadata descriptions provide the identification of many animal species from the recordings.
In total, this library delivers more than 2 hours of pristine, tropical ambiences.
The Wheels & Gears SFX library features a collection of bicycle tire, freewheel, gear and chain recordings. Two bike models were recorded: A Specialized Carve Expert (mountain bike) and a Bianchi Campione (city/road bike).
A wide range of sounds were recorded, from conventional bike sounds (such as freewheel clicks, gear shifting and chain movements, acceleration with various speeds, coasting, and disc brake movements) to more experimental sounds, creating unique sound effects using various found objects on the tires and spokes (such as cardboard, wooden sticks, fabric, shoe soles, guitar picks, and paper).
Recordings were captured with a Sanken CSS-5 Shotgun mic. The shotgun microphone was mounted in a full Rycote windshield kit and connected to a Sound Devices 702 recording at 192khz. The contact mic recordings were captured with the Barcus Berry 4000 Planar Wave system.

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.
