Specifically these recordings were done in the mines called “Nysetergruvene”. The atmosphere inside the mountain mine is cold and wet, with water dripping between levels, trickling down shafts and dripping in large pools.
The recordings vary from extremely quiet and sparse dripping to gushing intense waterfalls with varying distance to source.

Thermal Flux is a sound effects library formed by extreme temperature reactions. With materials ranging from -119°F to 1900°F all captured at 192kHz/24bit, it's a fiery (and icy) collection of unique sound design source material.
In each recording, props with vast temperature differentials interact with each other… Red hot ball bearings vaporize liquids, melt ice, and destroy various household products. Extremely cold metal instantly freezes water. Molten metals and glass pour into water, groaning, chirping, and crackling, as they solidify. Dry ice causes coins to viciously chatter. Water beads bounce, whine, and buzz on blazing hot pans. White hot sand roars and erupts upon contact with water. All of this and more was recorded with mics capturing quality frequency information up to ~65kHz. This ultrasonic content allows for extreme pitch shifting without compromising fidelity.
Farts are our bodies’ way of punctuating important moments. Everyone knows this and agrees on it. It’s basically accepted scientific fact.
And now, after decades of research and a couple days of intensely private foley work, George brings you 216 separate files of completely original yet hauntingly familiar fart sounds that will add ripe, satisfying definition to your every soundscape.
Employ George’s rich, mouth-made ass-noises to create emphasis, intrigue, a sense of accomplishment, desperation, true love, and more.
With over 20 minutes of quick bursts and ambient loops, we’re fairly confident when we say you really shouldn’t ever need more fart noises than this.

It offers raw sound materials encompassing 315 sounds of cracklings, frictions, impacts, and squashes.
A vacuum cleaner connected to a long hose that leads into the recording room, so you don’t hear the machine – that’s how this library was created.
It contains sounds from sucking in different materials, dynamic unreal winds & unbearable squeaks from the hose. Furthermore it includes sounds from “inside” the hose/pipe: Close-miked pass-bys of small objects, driven by the wind.
The recorded frequency content goes up to 100kHz, using a combination of microphones like the Sennheiser MKH 8040 and the Sanken CO-100K. Part of the sound files are already pitched down, so at the delivered 24bit – 96kHz resolution you can pitch them even further down without trimming the full audible frequency spectrum.

De-noise was applied to most of the recordings, to only preserve thunder FX, but you have the NO De-Noise folder included too.
Create your own thunder ambiences with the included Winds/Storm/Rain files (in the preview below, I used the Rain file in addition to thunder files).
Looking for sounds that make you want to grab a warm blanket and stay inside? This collection has thunder and rain recordings collected during window-shaking storms from 2012 to 2015.

Tibetan Singing Bowls – The ancient brain entrainment methodology for healing and meditation. Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for centuries for healing and meditation purposes. They create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul. They are also used for sound baths, which is when participants lay on the floor and let the waves of sound from the Tibetan Singing Bowls wash over them.
9 total bowls were recorded. Notes C, D, D#, E, F, G, A, A one octave up and B. A variety of bowl sizes were used from 8 to 12 inches.

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.
