The Rare Animals library from Pro Sound Effects is a collection of unique animal sounds from field recordings around the world. They have been meticulously edited and mastered for cross-industry sound design usage from games to mobile/interactive and traditional film/broadcast.
The Rare Animals sound effects library was built from one principal aim: To find, nurture and release rare animal sound effects into the wild. Pro Sound Effects sourced the nature catalogs and archives from its existing global partners for the rarest field recordings, the most unusual of which were hand-selected by Brooklyn Sound Society‘s Neil Benezra to remaster and restore. This collection of animal effects was edited and optimized for game and interactive industries in mind, so most are shorter, trigger-able sounds. The library also contains a collection of ambiences—longer, environmental sound effects that can be further edited, or used as backgrounds.
This library includes various sounds of rain, from a light to a real heavy rain. In total, this library contains 31 files. All sounds were recorded in different locations (city streets, apartment, farm, park).
Files are meta-tagged, that describe everything in more detail. Some files are already looped. These sounds can also be used as a construction kit to create the various general atmospheres.
Small SFX library with light bulb: buzz, flickering, zap… Perfect for haunting ambience!

Beef up your sound design with the ferocity of Gators – from beastly bellows and monstrous growls to aggressive hisses and vicious jaw snaps. This one-of-a-kind, exclusive speciality library delivers stunning alligator sound effects ready to add power and intensity your audio projects.
And “one-of-a-kind” is no exaggeration. There’s a reason you will not find a similar collection dedicated to alligator or crocodile sound effects anywhere else. These sounds can not only be dangerous to record, but they are extremely difficult to capture as alligators are typically very stealthy, quiet creatures… except during mating season.
Luckily, recordist Colin Hart embarked on several excursions to the swamps of Florida to develop a method for cueing the monstrous sounds from these cold-blooded beasts – so you don’t have to. After seven years (plus a mangled blimp, destroyed boom pole, JBL baby stroller, and a couple testing subwoofers from Boeing), these incredible alligator recordings are now available for your own projects.
In addition to bellowing mating calls, warning hisses, terrifying snarls and more alligator sounds, the Gators library also provides partially submerged hydrophone recordings as well as marsh and bird ambiences.
Add this rare secret weapon to your sound design toolset and give life to creatures, monsters, dragons, dinosaurs, crocodiles, and other beasts. The organic immensity of these sounds also make perfect layers for explosions, thunder, fire, engines and more.

Barcelona Traffic Day is the first part of the two libraries dedicated to traffic in Barcelona. Here you will find a wide collection of recordings of the city’s traffic made exclusively during the day. The second part, Barcelona Traffic Night, contains recordings made during the night.
The library is a collection of traffic ambiences of various characteristics, recorded in different areas and types of roads in the city. From the downtown to more peripheral areas, including intersections, roundabouts, fast lanes, busy streets, traffic jams with claxons and quieter situations, but always focusing on the sound of moving vehicles in the city. All sound perspectives are covered, from distant and diffuse traffic, recordings made at medium distance, to very close emplacements at street level. Some of the files have been recorded from bridges, top of buildings or balconies trying to avoid the proximity of pedestrians and closer elements other than pure traffic. You will also find a few traffic ambiences with rain and some others that include pedestrians and other urban elements.
The files have been carefully embedded with metadata and tagged with markers to facilitate the search for items such as claxons or ambulance’s sirens. They also include the coordinates of the recording spots.
The library has been recorded at 96kHz / 24 bit with a Double MS kit from Schoeps, and dematrixed with the Schoeps Double MS plug in to obtain the 5.0 files. The stereo version of the library is a downmix of the 5.0 files.

A selection of large metal hits with long ringing decays. The sounds were recorded using a large free-standing metal gas bottle, and include metal and wood strikes, and movement sounds.
The individual impacts have a long natural resonance and decay, and the sounds are also ideal for pitch-shifting, bending and other post-processing.
A good range of street sounds – from traffic that’s light to heavy-with-horns, to whizzing by on a city freeway. Sirens from near and far. Church bell chimes, a kids playground – a garbage truck. From Park Ave to Greenpoint. All in immersive binaural stereo – the next best thing to being there.
Take a little trip – with the Audio Ninja.
East River ferry immersion – pretty much all you’ll need to recreate a trip on the ferry – or how it sounds from the quayside/shore. Immersive binaural stereo locates you right by the ferry station with a groaning pontoon and creaking fenders and gentle river wave action. Then boarding and disembarking, as well as a suite of onboard sounds inside the main passenger cabin and out on deck. No wind buffet here … just awesome variable boat engine sounds and wave lap against the hull.

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.
