Urban Berlin Volume 2 is the brand new library in addition to volume 1, capturing the many sounds of the German capital.
We recorded in the districts: Kreuzberg, Mitte, Charlottenburg and Tiergarten. This Library contains the most-visited places, as well as quiet streets and backyards. Most of these recordings were made during the spring of 2016. For further details about the locations, please read the spread-sheet and take a look on the location photos.
It was completely recorded in MS-Stereo (mid/side Signal) which gives you the great opportunity to handle the stereo-spread in post production. For those of you, who want fast results, we offer you a converted version in full Stereo-spread or take both as a bundle. The excellent Neumann Shotgun MS-Microphone RSM 190i was used in this session.

Need jackhammer sounds? This library delivers a broad selection, from wall drilling at various intensities, recordings from behind the wall, reverberant jackhammer sounds – and even otherworldly drilling recordings from an underground carpark.
This collection started as a mic test and turned into a library. What is unique about the collection is that the phone was taken apart so you get each individual element as clean as possible. It was recorded with shotgun mics, a TLM 103 to see how it sounded with something other than dialogue, and a Cold Gold contact mic at 96 khz, which was the biggest surprise as it sounds like a high definition retro mic when placed on the back of the phone's rotary dial. Skip the antique hunt and listen to these vintage sounds.
[Updated 11/2018 : The extension “Ghosts Return” has been added as a bonus to this library]
Looking for haunting, spooky sounds (ready for VR and 360 degree content) – this library gets you up to 600+ sounds to work with. The Ghost Designed Sound library offers 20 atmospheres and 125 sound elements finely crafted, and spatialized in 360° (3 format options: Ambisonics, Surround 5.1, or stereo).
The Ghosts Construction Kit delivers 545 raw sound sources (monophonic). It provides the sonic material to create custom sound effects and soundscapes of ghostly auditory experiences with your own settings.
Office Building features the ambiences one can hear sometimes around midnight or in the early morning hours.
During these times employees are usually at home and only service staffs are around so that the building can unfold its own sounds of ventilations, elevators and wind that blows through tilted windows. Automatic switches occasionally ignite neon lights along the floors or elevator doors open from out of nowhere.
The library contains 79 files in 5 categories: DOORS, ELEVATORS, NEON LIGHTS, ROOM TONES plus several takes from the building´s EXTERIOR surroundings.
All files are meticulously meta-tagged and seamlessly integrate into sound managing apps like Soundly, Soundminer or any other app that can read Broadcast WAVs.

This library was created to provide designers with drag and drop sounds for sweeps, fades, surges, swells, and other embellishments. Each of the sounds in this collection were designed to be used to heighten events, but they can be mashed, stacked, and chopped to create all sorts of eclectic designs. There are plays on musical concepts as well as thematic events, with each sound purposefully building up, culminating in a peak moment, and then dissipating in some way. They are organized into 100 families (designs) with 5 variations each, ranging wildly in topic, movement, duration, dynamics, attack, release, loudness, density, and speed. Some are natural and organic while others are completely rigid and synthetic (and some fall variably in between).
If you need to festoon the heck out of a scene or event in your project…If you need some complex SFX designs craftily layered and ready-to-go…If you need a diverse set of easy-to-tweak, overflowing sonic enrichment, then look no further. You've found it.

A slight breeze, the city rumble, distant people chatters, a bird passing by, crickets chirping, a little rain or snow, the tranquility inside the city is a fragile and magical moment.
City streets are the channels of all the possibles, a heat place for sensorial stimulus connecting people lives and their urban activities throughout the day. Yet when it becomes quiet we still perceive its energy and are able to sense the mood of the moment with serenity.
These recordings were made at ground level with very little editing in order to keep them natural and as close as a human would experience the city on a daily basis. At times, distinct activities can be heard in the distance although the most noisiest events were taken out. Each file is loopable.
Also, every season and weather condition are represented. This library has been thought for the universal need of sonic bed in urban scenes, used as glue or ‘exterior roomtone‘.

TESTIMONIALS & BUYERS COMMENTS
“I had a Tesla in a show and realized I had no Tesla library – This kit got the job done perfectly – Thanks Rick!
-Jonathan Lipman, MPSE
Sony Pictures: “The Good Doctor” network TV series
“Rick’s TESLA SFX library was a life-saver for us on Season 2 of HBO’s Divorce, especially since Tesla demands that ONLY authentic Tesla sounds be used whenever their vehicles appear in a scene! Rick’s FX gave us that authenticity. Very valuable resource. Thanks Rick!”
– David Briggs
Supervising Sound Editor, HBO “Divorce”
“Hey Rick! Awesome job on the Tesla library! Literally minutes after downloading, I cut one of the servos into a commercial I’m working on… I’m going to get a TON of mileage out of the wheel recordings. I feel like wheels are a really difficult sound to get a great recording of… All around great job!”

Yabby Pumping or Pumpin’ Yabbies (as we call it down under) is a process of sucking sand, mud and water to catch bait for fishing. In this library you will find 62 sound effects that capture those sounds. All files are metatagged.
Metal Resonances is a pack full of resonating metal that was made resonant with contact from dry ice. This creates otherworldly metallic tones which we carefully recorded and crafted into this product.
The pack contains everything needed to create all sorts of creaks and cranks and can be used to sound design everything from robots, bridges, hatches, hinges, cars, horror SFX, UI. There are also a very expressive trait to some of the sounds, and can probably be made into weird creatures and other unexpected things.
The entire pack has unique descriptive meta data for each file to make it easy to navigate between the different sounds.
The pack was captured in 96khz and 192khz and some sounds have two different perspectives to choose from. The 96khz version is usually from a close-up handheld perspective or in direct contact with the material, where 192kHz comes from carefully miced up static positions.
Recorded with two Oktava MK 012 in spaced stereo configuration and a Sony PCM m-10
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.
