Situated by the Odra River, Wroclaw has clearly arrived in modern times without blurring the traces of its eventful history.

The area around central Rynek place is a large entertainment district thats hardly disturbed by car traffic.

These effects were recorded in a Victorian Town House in London, England. The house has been pretty much preserved from the day when its first owner died, with the original furniture, decorations and facilities.
Now a museum, I was granted access for a couple of hours one morning and I went from the basement to the top floor, recording the various doorbells and servants bells along with some of the old and heavy wooden doors. The bells are connected to various parts of the house by wires that run under the floorboards and are operated by a bell pull or handle in the rooms and at the front and rear doors of the house.
There are eight different bells, five in the basement and three in the attic rooms, all recorded at different lengths and intensities, a dinner gong and six doors, with openings and closings of different intensities. There are 111 effects in all, recorded at 96/24 Later that year, I stayed in an old tenement house in Edinburgh, Scotland, where almost every door creaked wonderfully.
These effects were recorded at 48/24 and are included as a bonus to the main collection. There’s also a couple of big metal door slams thrown in for good measure.

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.
