  • Recorded at the Technical University of Denmark and at a big Art Workshop in Copenhagen – in collaboration with sound designer and field recordist Rune Palving. This collection of sounds captures the crowds, both loud and more quiet, and the different rooms, halls, and hallway tones that are speciel to such places.

    The Technical University files are all surround files, recorded in double MS and mixed into 5.0 tracks. Recorded in very crowded places, like the dining area, and at the library, but also in more quiet places, like the auditorium wardrobes and in the rest rooms.
    The sounds recorded at the art workshop, focus more on the rooms and reverberation found here. The sounds also include, artists working in their own shops, cleaning, writing and painting. All sounds in this collection are stereo.

    The library includes:

    15 surround tracks, 5.0, 96/24 ranging from a few minutes to +7 minutes long. 8.8 GB

    10 stereo tracks, 96/24. From 3-10 minutes long. 2.1 GB

    Equipment used: Sounddevices 702, 744, Mixpre, Sennheiser Mkh8040/Mkh30/Mkh8040

  • Tibetan Singing Bowls – The ancient brain entrainment methodology for healing and meditation. Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for centuries for healing and meditation purposes. They create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul. They are also used for sound baths, which is when participants lay on the floor and let the waves of sound from the Tibetan Singing Bowls wash over them.

    9 total bowls were recorded. Notes C, D, D#, E, F, G, A, A one octave up and B. A variety of bowl sizes were used from 8 to 12 inches.

  • Let’s continue our scientific journey into experimental-impulse-response research. This time around, we have developed a technique to produce outstanding rhythmic reverb spaces; utilizing intense frequency and amplitude modulation synthesis with the touch of granularity.

    Some of them resulting in the most vivid and lush ambiences you could imagine, other with glitchy stuttery twists. Sounds that are truly out of this world, that can yet be tamed to fit your reality. Our impulses will reverberate clearly in your convolution reverb engine, without any harsh resonances or struggles with equalisation.

    They are like pieces of glass, beautiful and clean with outstanding shapes and textures, yet coloured if need be. Trust your ears, these spatial shapes can be what it takes to transform your tracks into cinematic wonders or completely reinvent them as spatial masterpieces.

    Details:

    • 64 impulse response samples
    • 48khz / 24bit wav files
    • Compatible with any convolution-reverb software
    • WAV + ReFill version (for Propellerhead Reason 8.3+ with 64 Combinator & RV7000mk2 patches)

  • This is a unique bicycle library that captures road surfaces from the perspective of super quiet bicycle. These are clean, quiet, nicely performed true exterior rides. Including multiple perspectives, speeds and actions. From fast passbys on asphalt to slow onboard recordings and smooth stops.

    The Extra Surfaces library provides 162 sounds captured on the following road types Large Bricks, Gravel, Grit, Icy Asphalt.

    The four additional ‘onboard road’ surfaces are the perfect extension for your other ‘City Bicycle’ library of taste. Just add it as a layer, mix it and voila your bicycle can move from gravel to bricks to grit or from large bricks to slippery icy asphalt roads.

    Speeds and actions:

    Three speeds. Departures from slow, medium to fast getaways. Arrivals from slow stops with gently brakes to smooth departures.

    Five perspectives:
    1. Onboard Front: captures the whirring tire and surface sound.
    2. Onboard Pedal: nice overall combination of pedaling, crank creaks, chain rattle, tire and surface sounds.
    3. Onboard Rear: close up sound of the rear axle, with chain, sprocket and switching of gear.
    4. Tracking shot: mono recording of the passby, keeping the bike in focus while passing by.
    5. Static XY shot: stereo recording of the passby that emphasizes speed.

    Overview of perspectives and mic placement:

    Onboard recordings are 2-3 minutes long depending on speed. Higher speeds > shorter duration.
    All 3 onboard mics are edited in sync with one another to make layering easy.
    All Passbys, Arrivals and Departures move from Left to Right.

    Metadata & Markers:
    Because we know how important metadata is for your sound libraries we have created a consistent and intuitive description method. This allows you to find the sound you need easily, whether you work in a database like Soundminer/Basehead/PT Workspace work, or a Exporer/Finder window.

    However, we are aware that some people have different needs for different purposes, so we’ve created a Metadata Reference Guide that explains the structure. And because we’ve automated the metadata proces, you can be confident that a ‘find & replace’ command will always replace all instances.

    Download our Metadata Reference Guide

    Download complete metadata PDF

    If you have any questions about this, contact us!

     

    Additionally, we added Markers to some wave files, so specific sound events are easy to spot in Soundminer or other database apps.

  • Skillfully performed using glasses as instruments, Sonomar Collection: Crystal Sing features 46 clean, high quality recordings of ringing vibrations perfectly suited for your harmonic tonal needs. This unique collection contains sonorous ringing tones at various pitches as well as sharp squeaks and rubs. Use the raw recordings to add hypnotic resonant layers to your projects, or alter them to experience the depth of Crystal Sing’s harmonic range.

    To capture these sounds, sound designer and recordist Martin Pinsonnault (Big Little Lies, Dallas Buyers Club) and the Sonomar team used six different types of glasses including Ricard, cognac and champagne flute glasses. The tonal vibrations created by rubbing a wet finger along the rim of the glass were recorded in 192kHz with MKH-8040 microphones in ORTF setup. Each glass produced its own pitch and tone dependent on its size, shape, and the amount of water added. The rich high frequency response and minimal noise make these clean harmonic tones ideal for pitching and processing.

    Each sound file is embedded with comprehensive metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with fast, pinpoint search. Enable creativity with detailed descriptions of each recording and their specific sonic qualities. Advanced metadata fields include translated French descriptions and additional info to ensure compatibility across any database search platform such as Soundminer, BaseHead, Netmix, Workspace (Pro Tools), Find Tool (Media Composer), Media Bay (Nuendo), Reaper, Adobe Premiere, and beyond.

    Key Features:

    • 46 sound effects (790MB)
    • 24-bit/192kHz broadcast .wav files
    • Rich embedded metadata descriptions
    • 100% Royalty-Free

  • The Burroughs Protectograph that we acquired was manufactured around the turn of the 20th century and had a single unique function – to stamp and emboss checks for banks. The Burroughs corporation has been around since 1886, and was an early force in the adding machine, check stamper and typewriter industries. This Protectograph version had an electric mechanism that would move large printheads down through a ribbon and would stamp a check hard and repeatedly for as long as the print key was held down. Our machine was acquired in perfect working condition.

    Its keys have a short through but a satisfying clack, and the punch mechanism is a huge whir stamp sound than can cycle if the punch button is held down. We rolled with the case both on and off, which revealed very different sounds from the main electric mechanisms.

    We ran the whole session with three perspectives miked up – front by the keys, in the back by the punch and a wide perspective perfect for bgfx placement. The front and back mics were Schoeps CMC6.MK4 and the wide mic was an AT 4050 in omni about 5 feet away. Listen to the straight examples give a clear accounting of the type of sounds we got from this machine, and the bent examples show what can really be done with those sounds and the Kontakt instrument.

     

    Key features for Burroughs Protectograph

    • 3 mic perspectives of each performance
    • 10 unique articulation groups
    • 10 + performances per articulation
    • 13 Kontakt .nki files (unlocked)
    • .nki files require full version of NI Kontakt 4 or higher
    • photographs and video stills

    Note: Can be used without Kontakt too!
    All Kontakt instrument libraries include fully unlocked and accessible metadata tagged .wav files. You don't need any version of Kontakt to use these files as a standalone sample library.

  • Shiba dog is a collection of dog sounds recorded in our studio. We brought two Shibas to the studio and let them play with each other. One of them is a very vocal dog and the other one is very quiet. This allowed us to capture a wide variety of sounds, from barking to panting, without a lot of overlapping.

    We recorded everything with four microphones to get the most out of this session. We included all the good takes in this collection, so each sound is covered with at least three microphones. The following microphones were used:

    • Line Audio CM3 small diaphragm condenser (cardioid)
    • Line Audio OM1 small diaphragm condenser (omni)
    • Rode NT2000 large diaphragm condenser (cardioid)
    • Rode NTG3 shotgun

    A big thank you goes out to Jory Prum for helping out with planning and recording!

    No animals were harmed or mistreated during the recording of this collection.

  • Get a huge variety of simple or complex lockdown mechanism sounds with a wide array of different latches and impacts with Lockdown, a performable Kontakt instrument and sound effects library.

    We brought in dozens of props big and small to generate a massive array of source material recorded at 24 bit 192kHz. These included cameras, carabiners, wrenches, rack cases, knives, can openers, tongs, crimpers, solder suckers, file cabinet doors, vehicle doors and servos and much more – all with multiple unique performances per set.

    Great care was taken to record each performance with the highest sonic quality and detail. We chose a pair of MKH50s in XY as our primary setup, creating a big, clean stereo image on every sound.

    Lockdown is divided into two parts –
    elements and designed:

    The elements collection has all of the source recordings in their unaltered states. Each sound is edited, cleaned, volume matched and carefully metadata tagged.


    The designed collection uses samples based on the elements 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. Lockdown includes over 500 fully lockdowns of all sizes and scales.

    Lockdown highlights

    • more than 1700 elements files
    • 192 kHz source recordings
