Welcome to my ‘TRAIN ANNOUNCEMENTS CONCATENATION KIT’. What does that mean? Well, it means you can use the words, numbers and phrases I have created to make your own station announcements, using whichever DAW you like to use.
With 90 popular UK stations phrases such as ‘We’re sorry to announce that the…’, ‘fast train’ slow train’ ‘is now boarding’ and ‘…has been cancelled’ you can create thousands of combinations of train times and destinations. I’ve made a couple of pre-canned ones for you as a sample and put one station background ambience in there too. All the VO is in a RP (well spoken) English male voice.
Metamorphosis is a huge collection of recorded source, synthesized material and hybrid sounds. The library was created to cover a wide range of themes, with rich textures, aggressive impacts and a large selection of pass bys, bass drops, pyrotechnics and many more types of material.
All of the Recorded Section was captured at 384KHz with microphones capable of recording up to 200KHz among with more conventional mics. The resulting assets are sounds that can be stretched to new extremes for greater sound design opportunities.
In many cases I took the liberty to slow down the assets while editing the sounds to deliver what I thought was the most useful version of a given recording though in most cases I have also included other takes at the original 384KHz sample rate to get the best of both worlds.
All of the Synthesized Content was created in Serum while the Hybrid Section was created by manipulating the Recorded and Synthesized sounds.
Techniques such as morphing were used to blur the lines in between the nature of the two sources, making for ambiguous yet extremely versatile material that can be employed on both realistic and abstract designs.
General Ambiences is a generic ambience sound collection which contains a mixup of stereo high quality backgrounds and soundscapes for cinematic purposes.
Sounds have been recorded with different techniques, different microphone patterns and recorders to get the best stereo results in every situation.

ROOM TONES USA – 3D SURROUND AMBIENCES
Our fourth entry of our famous sound effect series 3D SURROUND is now available: After ROOM TONES EUROPE comes ROOM TONES USA.
As you’d expect from a library labeled “room tones”, the sounds come without much action in the foreground but with a very detailed acoustic image of each room, giving you the perfect basic noise layer to break the silence in your post production project. The recorded rooms vary from hallways and warehouses over cafes, offices, basements, apartment rooms, laundry and boiler rooms to industrial rooms and even an underground bunker. ROOM TONES USA covers all different scenarios you could possibly need, delivered fully surround with unprecedented precision, spatial impression and clarity. Undoubtedly, this can be easily used in stereo productions as well. Either chose the angle yourself or use the stereo version (included in 3D SURROUND).
Your search for the one outstanding cinematic sound FX pack is complete with KRYPTON. This set of high-end FX can turn a homemade reel to a professional Hollywood cut. DARK AND LIGHT ATMOSPHERES, HITS, BRAAMS, RISERS, GLITCHES, DRONES, BOOMS, WHOOSHES and more are just a click and drag away from setting your work above the competition.
This library was developed in cooperation with our partner VAMIFY.

This second volume comprises 71 quad surround ambiences of the hot summer at the national park in Karelia, North-Western Russia. Carrying you away into the land of Mother Nature, untouched with technogenic and anthropogenic sounds. Busy morning of birds and insect in a marsh, streams in forests and a beaver’s dam, a rapid roaring river in a canyon. Mystically whispering and aggressively chattering winds through reed. A swallow feeding their nestlings in front of the microphone. Still evening over lakes with echoing voices of a Hobby falcon, Arctic Loon calls and splashy takeoff runs. Otherworldly silent night with Longhorn beetle larvae creaking communications in the trees at the shore, a bat at 30 kHz and a large beetle cruising around the mic like a helicopter with rumble down to infrasound.
10 % of the library’s revenue goes to nature preserves and animal shelters.
Thank you for supporting us by buying our first library!
Packed with 1.6GB (36 minutes, 1608 samples) of hits, blocks, whooshes and foley, you will easily be able to use these sounds for
your next project! Everything is in 24bit 96khz to make stretching and pitch shifting easy and pain-free (The project was at 110bpm).
Whether you are looking for a laser sword or an electric hammer, you will quickly find something ready
to use in this pack (or make your own with the included layers!) and make that weapon sound awesome.
We have included 17 predesigned weapons complete with whooshes, hits and blocks variations. But you will find
a bunch of extra impacts and sweeps in the “Random” folders. There is also a Foley, FX and Layers folders
to add that extra organic layer to the handling of the weapons or to make your own weapon from scratch.
Have fun! :)
A collection of ambiences from underneath every railway bridge crossing the Thames in London. Most recordings are dynamic enough to allow for easy isolation of train sounds for use as an individual effect, with periods of quieter urban and suburban soundscapes in between – 2 kinds of library for the price of one, essentially.
All recordings made with a pair of DPA 4060s into a Tascam Dr-100mk3.
European Small Car is a specific sfx collection of engine, hood, boot, gear level, interrupts, radio-cassette, glove box, turn signal, seat belt, door, ventilation fan, windscreen wiper and sun screen sounds.
All recordings have been done with high quality microphones and field recorders and they have been edited and mastered for cinematic purposes.
Recorded throughout 3 seasons, during the course of more than 10 matches on Sport Lisboa & Benfica’s beautiful Estádio da Luz, Soccer Stadium Ambience gathers a wide range of crowd reactions and emotions; useful for background ambiences that can be applied not only on audiovisual football content but also on other large stadium sports-based projects.
All prominent dialogue between supporters was either removed or toned down with the aid of mastering and EQing software, in order to preserve the neutral nature of this library, allowing certain crowd reactions to flow naturally. There are also no long fade-ins our fade-outs, permitting whoever acquires this library to create their own edits and collages however deemed necessary. Some very light wind and noise removal techniques were applied on certain audio files, without impairing the original mood presented by the crowd.
Between long takes of supporters singing, booing, celebrating goals, reacting to good team moves and bad referee decisions, this nearly 3 hour long library recorded in an always packed location will provide the necessary emotional crowd feedback to your sports-based projects.

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.
