Tek Chok Ling Nunnery library contains one of a kind, unique collection of sounds, recorded both within the walls of the Nepalese nunnery and on the filled with life streets of Kathmandu.
The purpose of the Tek Chok Ling Nunnery is to inspire and infect with the contagious beauty of everyday buddhist rituals, which normally are not accessible for outsiders and ment to be experienced by only a limited group of people, whose entire lives are dictated by their immaculate religious beliefs.
Within those humble advocates of unrestricted faith in a fellow man and a stranger, one can find an inspiration and a proper dose of somewhat distant empathy in the Western world.
The library includes, but is not limited to sounds from both the nunnery and the hectic streets of the capital city of Nepal. The busy streets of Kathmandu carry the beauty of its everyday hustle and bustle sounds, containing a diverse range of city ambience.
Extensive information of every track was made, making the search for desired environmental sound much easier, formatted for Soundminer. The library features 3h24min of sounds from Tek Chok Ling Nunnery, Kathmandu and Himalayan mountains.
Created using only a 1975 Fender Telecaster through a 1975 Fender Princeton Reverb (and some effect wizardry), Telepathy is SkewSound’s first drone/mood library.
Creator Steve Pardo paints an ethereal soundscape in this collection of eleven unique pieces. Telepathy will set an ominous, otherworldly mood to whatever you are creating, and we’ve included stems to some of the tracks so you can re-work to your heart’s content. It’s up to you with SkewSound’s Telepathy library.

Tension gets you 430+ sounds and 7.5GB of 24bit/96khz files, all meticulously embedded with Soundminer & Basehead metadata.
This mini -library contains sounds from a reptile shelter. They take in injured, negelcted or abandond reptiles and take care of them. They finance through a small zoo and due to corona had significant loss in income. 50% of the sales of this library will directly be donated to the shelter. For more information check: https://www.reptilien-auffangstation.de/
The recordings contain sounds from 14 different species. With the focus on reptiles, it also features amphibians, mammals and birds.
Ever needed a realistic hiss of an Arabian Cobra, the roar of a Nile crocodile, the sweet chirping of a Djungarian hamster, or the whistling sound of a Reticulated Phyton coming out of cold water? Here you go. With two mic positions in 192kHz I followed around the tails of big (Diamondback-) and small (Massasauga-) Rattlesnakes. I even recorded the purr of giant lizards (monitors).
If you don’t need these specific animals, these growls, sizzling, and calls are a great source sounds for dragons, dinosaurs, monsters and other beasts. Also great to add as a layer in vehicle sound design or as sweeteners to add the noise of a dart frog to your jungle atmo.
These recordings are hard to come by and my mics were nearly hit by poison, that crystalizes and stays venomous for years to come as well as they got nearly eaten by a crocodile (was very scary indeed with me at the other end of the (way too short) boom pole)
The best part, the handling with the animals was very thoughtful. No animals were tortured or stressed. They had some great animal voices at the shelter, that didn’t want to speak during the recording session, so we let them sleep and didn’t take any animals away from their hide.
Full List: Arabian Cobra, Diamondback Rattlesnake, Diamond Dove, Djungarian Hamster, Domestic Chicken, Domestic Goat, Nile Crocodile, Massasauga Rattler, Papua Monitor, Puff Adder, Reticulated Phyton, Ring Tailed Lemur, Yellow-Banded Poison Dart Frog and, well, a fish tank with my hydrophone with some weird electronic sounds from the heating.
It's finally here: An electric car sound effects library with recordings from a Tesla!
The Tesla Electric Car SFX library gets you 146 High Definition sound effects. It features recordings of the subtle sounds of an all-electric car – with its drive motors, servos and alerts, as well as interior and exterior perspectives of doors opening and closing and the horn honking.
It also captures the interior environment at highway speeds and the tires on gravel and pavement at various speeds. Plus, it has exterior street-based perspectives of vehicle pass-bys and arrivals on different road surfaces at various speeds.
So if you need electric car sounds for your projects, this library delivers.
TESTIMONIALS & BUYERS COMMENTS
“I had a Tesla in a show and realized I had no Tesla library – This kit got the job done perfectly – Thanks Rick!
-Jonathan Lipman, MPSE
Sony Pictures: “The Good Doctor” network TV series
“Rick’s TESLA SFX library was a life-saver for us on Season 2 of HBO’s Divorce, especially since Tesla demands that ONLY authentic Tesla sounds be used whenever their vehicles appear in a scene! Rick’s FX gave us that authenticity. Very valuable resource. Thanks Rick!”
– David Briggs
Supervising Sound Editor, HBO “Divorce”
“Hey Rick! Awesome job on the Tesla library! Literally minutes after downloading, I cut one of the servos into a commercial I’m working on… I’m going to get a TON of mileage out of the wheel recordings. I feel like wheels are a really difficult sound to get a great recording of… All around great job!”

Echo Peak presents: Tesla Model S!
This Tesla Model S P85D was recorded on a closed track with a professional stunt driver. (It was not easy to make it skid…) Not only is this library useful for Tesla sounds, but for tire sounds on pavement as well. As all of our libraries, this has been tested and approved by Hollywood sound editors. Enjoy the sounds of Tesla Model S!
Rodeos and horse ranches aren't what they used to be.
These days, rodeos are polluted with big PAs pumping rock and pop music through the speakers while the cowboys ride the bulls and buck the broncs. People watch through cell phones and keep a safe distance from the action. Horse ranches are overrun with the sounds of 4 wheelers and dirt bikes on the tracks nearby.
The recordings we have come from before that time.
Years ago we rolled out to the rodeo with full access, a portable DAT machine, and a determination to catch every angle we could take a mic to. The house band played from a balcony unamplified while the cowboys rode the bulls and the crowd cheered. The children rode sheep in a sport called “mutton busting” and the women mounted stagecoaches and raced around the arena at breakneck speed.
…and when the show was over the crowd stood up to leave, but the cowboys were still competing – so they kept riding.
The steer wrestling contest happened in an almost empty arena. We were there — up close, capturing every gate release, the sounds of the cow struggling to stay on his feet, and the single trainer cheering the cowboys on. The dirt and the grit and the steel clacking around were all there, exposed and clean and in their native environment.
After the rodeo we went to a local horse ranch and kept on rolling. We got gallops and canters, grunts and snorts. We handled the tack, shook the bridles, and swung the gates. We recorded in the barn and out on the fields.
These recordings come from a time before 24 bit 96kHz portable rigs existed, but they have a quality and fidelity that has survived the ages. Take a listen and remember the time when these things sounded like they should sound.

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.
