Sintra’s woods are famous for their mystique and peculiar flora selection, a result of its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and by men’s own ingenuity on planting foreign species over the course of multiple centuries, resulting in a location that’s green throughout the four seasons, attracting a wide array of bird species and constant weather changes, sometimes all in a single day.
Taking advantage of RØDE’s NT-SF1 ambisonic microphone, the woods were thoroughly explored, where each of the 25 audio files present in this library were recorded on different locations, resulting on multiple diverse atmospheres, where the predominant soundscapes are the beautiful early morning bird calls with smooth wind gusts and a couple of surprises happening throughout, courtesy of strange insects, angry ducks flying around, amongst other oddities.
These audio files are perfect for neutral springtime soundscapes and given the nature of ambisonics, you can easily convert these B Format files onto any desired format (like regular stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 surround) with the correct plug-in, like RØDE’s own SoundField, which happens to be free to download. These are raw recordings where little to no hum or hiss removal techniques were applied.

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.
