It’s my pleasure to introduce you to this dense library of accomplished and cacophonous sounds. This is a dramatic and horror filled library, teaming with tension and ghostly ambience, stingers and hits.
Most of these sounds have been used in film and television in one form or another. They’re more than just “designy sounds”.
These are intended to create a score of tension that can help you build a scene to it’s full potential. These sounds add movement within the soundtrack, especially with the drones. When creating sounds, I like to inject some sort of movement within the sound itself, so that it’s never stagnant or ‘still’ sounding.
So if you’re looking to notch your project up a level with dark, moody and expressive design, this is a good bet for you. Hopefully you’ll have as much inspiration as I did when creating these.
Recorded throughout 4 parts of Italy (Rome, Naples, Positano, Tivoli Gardens), the 3 hours and 45min of material gives you a large variety of sound to choose from.
Every city/town has signature sound of its own. The constant hum or “Din” of a city varies. Rome is known for its many scooters, motorbikes, and church-bells.
This library is made up of various location Dins, and small side-street ambience.
Of the 60 tracks, a majority are over 4 mins. and some are 5 min in length. There are sections that rival others, but overall there is a large selection to pick and choose from.
Of course I've edited out all the rough areas, and material of no consequence (the boring bits) to tighten and heighten the clips, and make them sound interesting.
The processing used is minimal. DMG EQ, C4 Compressor, and a little noise reduction in some cases. Mostly very transparent processing. There may be a moment or two where there is a wind bluster, but because of the nature of the track, I chose to minimize instead of chop out.
A special sound effect library from renowned sound designer and recordist Tim Nielsen: It's captured with a VC3 recorder, which turns electromagnetic frequencies into audible tones.

This library is a collection of a wide variety of sounds recorded with high quality equipment over the past few years.
Most of the sounds are field recordings or otherwise raw without any processing such as noise removal, EQ or compression, but still mostly curated and edited so that it's fast to start using them in your projects.
To celebrate the end of one era I decided to put together most of my recordings as one library, it's including recordings with different techniques – from the electromagnetic fields of iPhone and a contact-mic'd sewing machine, to ORTF-stereo atmospheres of greenhouses, and gardens full of crickets recorded in ambisonic, and much more. 45 GB of material should cover your needs for some time :)
I hope it's useful as a source of ready-to-use sound effects, but also as material and inspiration for something more. High quality and high sample rates allow you to manipulate the sounds a lot without losing their energy. Have fun with the library!

Get the sounds of a powerful excavator – the Excavator MF 860 – covering both interior and exterior recordings.
The Excavator library gets you the sound of the engine recorded on-board (under the hood + interior from the cabin) while driving on the different roads, exterior engine with passes in mono and stereo recorded on asphalt, hard ground and dry grass and foley. Engine sounds comes in two versions, designed and RAW, so you can design it on your own.
The ‘Excavator MF 860’ sound library is a result of two full day recording sessions. The first session covered the sound of the engine, recorded under the hood with two DPA 4061 microphones, and exterior digging sounds recorded in mono and stereo with Rode NTG3, 2 Sennheiser MKH 8040 and Sony PCM-M10 recorder. The second recording session covered the exterior passes, interior sounds, foley and digging, since we had to dig our machine from the mud.
The library gets you 83 files and has a total length of 145 minutes. Everything was recorded in 96 kHz, edited, cleaned and meta tagged.
Here are the chaotic, squealing, squelching insides of everyday electronic apparatus, such as cell phones, laptops, MiniDisc (I’m so old) players and battery drills.
Sounds that drone, sounds that buzz – sounds that go “YipYipYiiiipfffrrrszz…”. No kidding. Recorded with induction coils/telephone pickups or whatever you want to call them, these sounds are excellent sound design material.
In fact, I couldn’t help “performing” a bit when recording some of them, just to add a little extra movement.
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!
A Sound Effect is a great resource for keeping up on what's out there in the SFX library world. The site is well organized and it's easy to find stuff.
I love the behind the scenes articles - and the ability to purchase directly through the site is super convenient. The process is very straight forward and painless. I recommend it all the time.
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.
