While straying through several antiques shops and flea markets I unveiled a lot of very interesting and organic sounds with character. Sounds that only prop up with plenty years of service can do.
So this library is a versatile and composite collection of all those squeaky, creaky, rusty sounds with a lot of personality.
Here you will find all the little vintage sonic gems.
From mechanical cameras and rusty coffee mills, over-jammed drawers, doors and locks, to sewing machines, typewriters and malfunctioning projectors. You get over 1000+ready to use sounds. All painstakingly edited, cleaned and decently named for you.
All source sounds were recorded with Sonosax SX-R4+ with a Sennheiser MKH8050+MKH30 M/S rig, a Sound Devices MixPre-6 + MKH8060 and a Sony PCM-D100. All sounds come with embedded Metadata.
Cinescapes is the third and the last installment in the CINE series.
It is a collection of modern, cinematic, evolving, sequential soundscapes.
Cinescapes (Cinematic Soundscapes) is a library created with sound designers and gamedevs in mind.
It’s not just another “drone” library. Every soundscape is unique and has been mangled through both external outboard as well as
some top tier plugins. It’s sequential nature adds a sense of rhythm without making it take over the whole frequency range.
All soundscapes loop seamlessly for your convenience.
The collection consists of 20 carefully designed and rendered soundscapes with baked-in Soundminer’s metadata.
All sounds have been created and processed using top tier gear in order to deliver crisp, modern, error free sound.

TOURIST CROWDS is a collection of 30 stereo recordings, specially designed for scenes set in tourist places and points where a mix of different languages is a must. Spanish, English, Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, French… you name it.
In order to avoid unobtrusively sounds, all files are stealth recordings. Therefore, equipment used consists of small handheld recorders (Sony D100 and Zoom H2n). A couple of Clippy stereo mics were also used, plugged into the D100.
Files come in 24 bit and 96 & 48 kHz, with embedded metadata.
Have a scene at an airport? Maybe a temple? A central station? I got you covered.
The Rock Slides sound effects library includes 57 recordings of various small rock, pebble, and other debris slides.
There were multiple microphone positions used, but the two most common were a stereo microphone placed on the middle of the slope, capturing the slides from left – center – right as they slid down the mountain.
The other was the stereo microphone placed at the bottom of the slope as the rocks traveled down the slope towards the microphone. This captured more of a crescendo with the sound of rocks growing louder as they travel closer to the microphone.
Los Angeles is well-known for having some of the largest and most traveled freeways in the United States.

Swell is a performable Kontakt instrument and sound effects library designed to create natural sounding cymbal swells with a variety of different cymbals and performances. Cymbals include gongs, orchestral suspended cymbals, crashes, chinas, sizzle ride, and others.
Swell is divided into 2 parts: natural and designed.
The natural collection has recordings that are unaltered from their original performances and was created to produce clean, musical, natural sounding swells.
The designed collection uses samples based on the natural recordings that have been transformed into entirely new and different sounds using heavy processing and layering. It was created to produce interesting design and transition sounds quickly and easily. Swell includes over 200 fully designed rises.
In addition to the carefully recorded sounds we have created a truly useful and flexible Kontakt instrument. This instrument ties the mod wheel to an entire matrix of effect parameters that you can manipulate in real time for instant complexity.

Make your mixing room shake with these huge sounds!
City Traffic brings the daily noise of Berlin to your library. It delivers 10 different locations – split into 55 single takes with metadata embedded.
The library contains recordings of main roads during the morning rush hour, when the trolley car rumbles over the rails and the trucks are roaring through the kettles. In between a bunch of honking mopeds and cars with broken exhaust pipes are fighting for their space. Commuter trains are crossing every minute, the omnibus arrives just in time and the long-distance trains pass the station with squeaking brakes. In the evening it is rainy and at least the suburb calms down a little bit.
A collection of authentic recordings from churches, ceremonies and processions, recorded in Italy. A total of 30 minutes of ambiences are included.
We are the People is a sound effects library filled with protests chants from the 2012 NATO protests in Chicago.
Two locations give this library two aurally unique crowd environments. The downtown protests reflect off the surrounding buildings, giving them a neat urban quality, while the Ravenswood protests give the impression of a more open environment. Groups of protesters in unified chant ranged in size from just a few to perhaps 200 or more. Many of the recordings have wonderful builds, starting with one or two voices and grow from there, in both size and intensity.
These recordings work great as stand alone effects or for layering in some specificity to crowds. The next time your designing a defiant crowd, bring some authenticity with We are the People.
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.
