Beer & Whiskey Commercials is a library we put together after finding ourselves designing a number of commercials that all shared a similar theme. This library is a good time saver when time isn’t on your side, but is also a great way to create a base to work off.

The VTX line is also known for its distinctive transmission, which gives a meaty ‘clunk’ with every shift.

A meditation on the most versatile audio tool with which we are biologically equipped, we have carefully crafted this collection of mouth noises to provide you with highly dynamic and almost unpredictable organic audio fare. However, we tried to explore less conventional noises and specifically avoided the usual burps, coughs, throat clears, etc. Captured from a single male voice actor, this collection includes squishy spurts, saliva smacks, guttural loops, pops, clicks, cracks, inhales, exhales, and air bursts.
A particular part of this library is the intentional use of creating soft distortion from moving air over the mic membranes in specific ways. This helped add low end and saturated elements to many of the sounds. The wide spectral coverage of this library makes it easy to blend many of the sounds together to achieve some truly diffused but balanced soundscapes. Don’t try to tame this library, unleash it! We've successfully used these in explosions, engine layers, organic rummaging, shots, ambient clouds, UI, and more. Enjoy!

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.
