  • Animals & Creatures Wimpy Dog Play Track 38+ sounds included, 7+ mins total $25

    “Wimpy Dog” is a collection of over 35 different recordings of a particularly sad German shepherd. He whines, he calls out, he yelps, he pants and pleads for attention in a truly expressive manner. He’ll be sure to bring some much needed character to any dog you’ve got onscreen or a creature you are designing.

    The takes are generous in length, with plenty of breaths before and after each vocalization simplifying the creation of complex sequences. All of this was recorded outside, with great signal to noise, ie. very little air. No kennel reverb or cage moves and only the occasional birds in the background. That adds up to sounds which will hold up to robust amounts of processing.

  • Ambisonics Wind 1 – Interior Play Track 18 sounds included, 44 mins total $75

    An interior wind collection is a must-have. It howls and it hoots through the recess of a door or a window.

    About Ambisonics:
    This is an Ambisonics sound effects library - and by using the free SoundField SurroundZone 2 plugin you can convert the B-format files into your preferred format (stereo, 5.0, 5.1, 6.0, 6.1, 7.0 or 7.1 surround). Note: The library also contains ready-made stereo mixdowns for your convenience.
  • This is your exterior wind collection, mainly recorded outside with a wind trap. You will be surrounded in your editing room by blowing, fresh air.

    About Ambisonics:
    This is an Ambisonics sound effects library - and by using the free SoundField SurroundZone 2 plugin you can convert the B-format files into your preferred format (stereo, 5.0, 5.1, 6.0, 6.1, 7.0 or 7.1 surround). Note: The library also contains ready-made stereo mixdowns for your convenience.
  • Wind Elements – Interior is 75 minutes/2.43 Gb of howling, blasting and fluttering wind, recorded from inside various buildings. 90 separate files – recorded in 24bit/96kHz using Sennheiser MKH & Primo EM172 microphones, and mastered in X/Y stereo.
    This collection is the bigger, badder sequel to bestseller Howling Winds – Interior, with more of everything: fresh recordings, more types of wind, more locations and just more variation.

    Everything from violent blasting and howling, to gentle, caressing wind. Some with sleet and rain, cracking and creaking of window frames and roof materials, others with faint sound of rustling leaves or urban buzz.

    You get both long ambiances from various locations, as well as plenty of short files to sweeten up your mix.
    Some sounds have been eq'ed aggressively to enhance the feeling of being indoors, but very little processing has been applied otherwise. You'll hear a bit of hiss here and there; I left it in because I felt noise reduction would take away too much character in those specific cases.

    You get:

    • Indoor wind sounds
    • Howling, blasting, fluttering – a bit of sleet & rain too
    • Lots of variations of each sound
    • Searchable file names
    • BWF Metadata embedded – with more included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats

     

  • Weather Wind In Trees Play Track 32 sounds included, 93 mins total $28

    Here are ambient and specific recordings of rustling leaves, fluttering twigs and creaking trunks. Pine and Fir trees, Beechwood hedgerows and leafless Oak trees, along tall grass and reeds. All in all, a collection representative of the cultured landscape in Denmark, as well as much of northern Europe. I was lucky enough to record a storm during the last days of 2016, and those sounds are of course included here. No human voices or man-made sounds, but a few of the sounds have bird vocalizations in them.

    The focus is rather narrow, going for many nuances of the same flavor – rather than many flavors. If you need sounds of a storm or gale in northern European vegetation, then this should fit the bill. Note that there is audible buffeting in several files. I opted to leave it in there, as it might suit some purposes, and let me keep the most violent passages. You can try your luck with noise reduction, but since wind is mostly broadband noise anyway, it might not turn out well. YMMV.

    A few sounds appear in both mono and stereo versions, where the stereo version are X/Y derived from the M/S source files and the mono versions are simply the Mid channel. I did this, because most people seem to prefer X/Y files for post-work, rather than M/S – but a down-mix of X/Y to mono would be inferior to using the original Mid-mic signal. All sounds were captured in Denmark between October and January.

    You get:
    • Wind through trees, bushes and tall grass
    • Close recordings and wider takes
    • X/Y Stereo and Mono sounds (decoded from M/S)
    • Searchable file names
    • Metadata included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats
  • Mechanical Wind Turbine Play Track 28+ sounds included, 25 mins total $30

  • Drones & Moods Wind Turbines Play Track 124 sounds included, 90+ mins total $39

    The Wind Turbines library introduces the sounds of fizzling propeller blades, rotating nacelles, humming transformer stations, mysterious drones and other mechanic noises gathered from inside wind turbine towers.

    All these specific sounds are complemented by large-field wind farm ambiences.

    The library is organised into 7 themes that include takes with a length from 19 seconds to more than 2 minutes.

    The Wind Turbines library includes:

    Blade Noises • Drones • Nacelle Rotation • Tower Sounds • Transformer Stations • Ventilation • Wind Farm Ambiences

  • Mechanical Windmills Play Track 27 sounds included, 62 mins total $30

    This is the windmills sound effects archive from Morten Green Sound FX

    27 soundfiles of totally 62 minutes of sound in 96 kHz 24 bit.

    The windmills recorded in this archive are 6 old 45 metre tall windmills, generating electricity on the coast of the small Danish island Orø. They are rather old and worn out, so they generate a lot of interesting noises, especially when you get very close to them.

    The structures are from metal, bolted into a concrete foundation with small openings, so you can actually get the microphones underneath the reverberant structure itself, for sounds from inside the windmills. The blades are made from glass fibre and pretty worn, so they give a lot of nice whistling noises.

    There are recordings from many different distances to the windmills, ranging from 150 m to right underneath the windmill structure.

    Most of the sound files are more than 2 minutes in length.

    Enjoy!

  • Nature & Countryside Winds and Storms Play Track 17 sounds included, 36 mins total $49

There are also plain wind sounds recorded on exceptionally quiet wilderness winter nights that can be layered over most every project for several minutes or longer. Additionally includes some branches breaking in high winds and rain patter.

  • Environments Winds of Dovrefjell Play Track 32+ sounds included, 71 mins total $42

    Many years of trekking in the Dovre mountains (Dovrefjell) at heights from 900 to 1200 masl. and temperatures reaching down to -20°C, has led to many unique recordings.

    My main goal when on Dovrefjell was to capture the “sound” of the harsh climate that dominates up there. Subsequently it was hard to avoid the ever restless wind. But it can be quite tricky to capture the sound of wind (or rather the sound of wind on or through objects) and there are only some “sweet spots”, in this vast high altitude climate scattered with rocks and tiny trees, that will generate a good recording.

    These recordings were done crouching behind rocks, on cliff sides, on top of summits, behind weathered shelters, old mountain farms and bushes. Partially freezing my hands of, operating recording equipment.

  • Environments Windy Forest Play Track 22 sounds included, 87 mins total $40

    Windy forest is a collection of forest ambiences with wind ranging from soft to strong. We spent two stormy days out in the deep forests of Norway and managed to capture a wide variety of wind sounds. The recordings are nearly 100% bird free so they are very usable internationally.
