In-depth recording of a Plymouth Cuda Convertible from 1971 with the extremely rare 426 Hemi engine and a 4-speed transmission.
Only two of these with the manual transmission were produced in 1971 so this car is obviously a clone but a very well built one. An original 1971 HemiCuda convertible is today extremely valuable, selling prices up to $5 million. The engine has 2 x 4-port Carter carburator and is (under)rated 425 horsepower by the factory.
The recording contains eight onboard microphones for interior, engine, intake and exhausts, and eight channels of exterior material.
It includes startup, idle, shutdown, driving at steady rpms, steady rpms in neutral, cruising, ramps, accelerations and decelerations through gears, approaches, passbys, aways as well as some foley like doors, hoods and knobs. Total recording length is 37m 39s.
In this sound pack I’ve included an in-depth selection of active ambiences. This library is focused more on the natural ambience of both busy main streets and calmer side streets.
Most sounds were captured below 110 St. and prominently in the Lower East and West Village. There are a multitude of police and firetruck sirens at varying distances as well as some not so common areas like the Intrepid Pier and the Hudson River Heliport ambience.
I’ve also included some extensive subway rides. All boring bits were edited out for a strong final product. There are multiple train rides with various levels of walla and PA announcements.
One thing that is very common in NYC during the summer months are the rain and thunderstorms. I’ve included a number of wet traffic, distant thunderstorms and heavy rains.
All in all this is a good representation of New York's streets and subway systems.
Get a collection of 134 impulse responses – recorded in the forest.
What if, instead of going to the forest to record the sound, we can find a way to bring the characteristics of the forest to us? Say, for example, we have recorded a sound in the studio like the sound of chopping wood or foley footsteps, but we want them to sound like they are in the forest?
There is a way to emulate this. To make our source sound like it is, in fact, in a forest. The answer is to use the impulse response of the forest and one of the convolution reverb plugins for your DAW.
An impulse response of the forest (or “forest IR”), is the sum of reflections from trees, foliage and the ground by very short signal at high volume. For this sound library, I recorded different impulses in a stereo at different locations of the forest with perfect conditions. Also, the library includes alternate versions of these impulses for use in the processing of the sounds that are far away from the listener.
For using these impulse responses, you need a convolution reverb plugin (not included). The library can be used with the built-in convolution plugins in many DAWs like ProTools, FL Studio amd Sony Vegas, and there are other commercial options on the market, but costs can be high. For starters, you can use a free convolution reverb from the following
A wide choice of IR’s will allow you to choose the most appropriate nuanced impulse response for your material. As you gain more experience with this forest IR, you will find that you can quickly adjust the ratio and volume level for wet and dry channels and effectively use other options of convolution reverb. This powerful forest reverb emulation will be incredibly effective for your sounds.
Water in pipes-sounds are very useful for illustrating places like sewers, underground caves and cavities, or simply a shower room. This collection delivers you water flows and leaks from a range of pipes and cavities – from large drain pipes, tunnels to drips in a bathroom.
‘FOUNTAINS’ gets you 100 pristine stereo recordings of various fountain sizes, types, and perspectives (including 15 hydrophone recordings). Each file is between 40 sec and 2 min long, mono compatible, and is fully loopable, ready to be used in any project.
Over a period of one year, I recorded various fountains from different perspectives and distances – and even underwater. And, as with every sound library from Articulated Sounds, the files are embedded with metadatas (Soundminer/iXML/XMP/BWAV/ID3).
So if you need the sound of fountains (or simply the sound of water), this library delivers nearly two hours of excellent, ready-to-use recordings:
This is a recording of the unmistakeable 1943 military Dodge pickup with its six cylinder and 72 horsepower engine. This eight-minute recording consists of engine starts, idling, revving, and engine stops, a stereo drive-by and driving at various speeds and on different road surfaces. In this sound pack you get four channels: left and right interior, engine and exhaust for detailed recordings of this WWII treasure.
Home to biggest fashion houses and supermodels, Milan is one of the most entertaining cities in Italy.

Apart from Milan you will also experience a journey to Lake Como, an upscale resort area know for its dramatic scenery and celebrity homes.

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.
