Exclusively on A Sound Effect!
Beef up your creature sound design with the deep intensity of the Wildlife Collection: Grizzly Bear sound effects library. With 146 expressive bear sound effects and vocalizations, these high-quality recordings contain a wide variety of grunts, roars, sniffs, mouth smacks, and purrs that are ready for naturalistic use or manipulation for sound design applications.
Recorded at 24-bit/192kHz using multiple microphones including the Sanken CO-100K, which captures and maintains up to 100kHz (rather than 20kHz from other microphones), field recordist and sound designer Chris Diebold (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Transformers: The Last Knight) captured the unique vocalizations and slimy mouth-noises of an old aged male Grizzly bear. Use the natural and characteristic recordings of deep groans, slimy chews, and heavy breaths for pitch processing and control over your sound design, to design your beasts, creatures, monsters and more.
In addition to these raw bear recordings, this collection also contains 41 designed and “hyped” sounds, ready to drag-and-drop directly into your monstrous designs and animalistic scenes. Each sound file is embedded with rich, descriptive metadata for fast, intuitive search results to help increase efficiency and sustain creativity.
Recorded by renowned innovators of film sound design Ann Kroeber and Alan Splet, the Stallion library features an incredible variety of charismatic horse sound effects including movements and vocalizations.
Intensify your projects with rumbling racing gallops, thumping canters, steady trots, and heavy rhythmic breathing. Bring creatures to life with the emotive whinny and neigh sounds of mustang stallions plus strong snorts, charming grunts, light nickers, and guttural exhales.
Many of these horse sounds were recorded for major feature films including The Black Stallion, The Horse Whisperer, and Hidalgo. Splet’s work on The Black Stallion won him a Special Achievement Academy Award® for Sound Editing. This recognition was largely due to the quality and depth of the source recordings he and Kroeber created.
Using a unique custom microphone rig (one mic fastened under the belly, another placed in front of the nose), the galloping sound effects in this library achieve an extraordinary dramatic quality with the horse’s powerful footsteps captured in harmony with its breathing.
Get an array of horse footsteps at your fingertips – moving at every gait and on various surfaces from gravelly dirt to shallow water, grass, sand, cobblestone and more. The Stallion library also includes miscellaneous sounds like chewing, saddle creaks, stretching leather, and scraping carriage wheels.
Following the libraries Cinematic Winds and Industrial Sounds with Soul, Stallion is the third exclusive release by Pro Sound Effects curated from Sound Mountain: Kroeber and Splet’s venerable private recording collection created over decades of film sound work with celebrated directors like David Lynch, Carroll Ballard, and Peter Weir. Kroeber has since worked on or supplied sounds for film, TV, and games – including 6 movies that won an Academy Award® in sound, and 7 additional nominations.
Performed on a experimental, custom-built rig with intense manipulation of objects and tools on a bass guitar string, the Sonomar Collection: Bass Machine sound library features 720 abstract sound design elements to serve as your go-to solution for mysterious designs. Add an otherworldly layer of depth and emotion to your projects with swirling metallic feedback, tensions, eerie engine drones, and gritty metallic vibrations.
At over 15GB, Bass Machine delivers 70 raw sound files and 650 designed sound effects. Recorded with contact mics and guitar pickups at 192kHz, the raw sounds provide uniquely organic building blocks for processing and manipulation. The acoustic isolation and high resolution of each file makes these sounds incredibly flexible for editing and ripe for imaginative sound design. The collection’s designed sounds have been expertly sculpted, pitched, and processed at 96kHz using parts of the raw files. Use these as inspiration for your own design potential, or drop straight into your projects to instantly add expressive tension, harmonic activity, and compelling dimension.
As the first exclusive Sonomar Collection release from Pro Sound Effects, Bass Machine demonstrates the sonic curiosity of sound designer and recordist Martin Pinsonnault (Big Little Lies, Dallas Buyers Club) and the Sonomar team. Together they created the contraption, recorded and performed sounds over many hours of experimentation with the instrument, and then meticulously trimmed, designed, and organized the results for a truly generous and limitless sound library.
Each sound file is embedded with rich metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with fast, pinpoint search. Sustain creativity with characteristic descriptions of each recording encompassing both literal sonic qualities as well as the images they invoke. Advanced metadata fields include translated French descriptions and additional info to ensure compatibility across any database search platform such as Soundminer, BaseHead, Netmix, Workspace (Pro Tools), Find Tool (Media Composer), Media Bay (Nuendo), Reaper, Adobe Premiere, and beyond.
Recorded by pioneer of film sound design, Ann Kroeber, the Ann’s Animals library showcases a unique variety of animal sounds and vocalizations. Including common, wild, and exotic creatures – ranging from pigs and frogs to capuchin monkeys, caribou and more – this special collection is equally useful and inspiring for practical sound editing and creative sound design.
Animal recordings play a significant role in Kroeber’s sonic legacy, and she is widely celebrated for her natural approach and incredibly expressive results. Her sense of presence with the animals and finely tuned listening shines through in these sounds – from the gentle, subtle breaths and purrs of cheetahs to a sprawling chorus of jungle frogs. Create thoughtful and powerful creature designs with these characteristic animal roars, shrieks, snorts, cries, buzzes, and more.
Following the acclaimed sound libraries Cinematic Winds, Industrial Sounds with Soul, Stallion, and Beautiful Bugs, Ann’s Animals is the fifth exclusive release by Pro Sound Effects curated from Sound Mountain: Kroeber’s venerable private recording collection created over decades of film sound work with her late husband, Alan Splet. Kroeber has since worked on or supplied sounds for film, television, and games – including 6 movies that won an Academy Award® in sound, and 7 additional nominations.

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.
