  • Surround Sound LAB is proud to present our third ambisonic library decoded and mixed in Dolby ATMOS.

    We recorded the Cantabria Country in Spainan area belonging to Green Spain, the name given to the strip of land between the Bay of Biscay and the Cantabrian Mountains, so called because of its particularly lush vegetation, due to the wet and moderate oceanic climate. The climate is strongly influenced by Atlantic Ocean winds trapped by the mountains.

    Recorded in ambisonic format, 48Khz and 24 bits HD. As always, top quality recordings specially designed for film audio projects.

    Once again, we have mastered all the files in Ad Hoc Studios Madrid (link), Post Production sound studios certified by Avid and Dolby ATMOS, one of the best post-production facilities in Spain.

    AmbiX First Order Ambisonic, Dolby ATMOS 7.12, 5.1 and ST files have been mastered with Pro Tools HD 2018 system are included in the package.

  • This is a unique bicycle library that captures this characteristic bike in 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 UglyBike is a typical old bicycle that’s working fine, but needs some TLC. It is a bicycle that’s just average, a little rattle a gentle scrape, a bike that everyone has had but got traded in for a newer one. A story of unrequited love.. :)

    Speeds and actions:
    Three speeds. Departures from slow, medium to fast getaways. Arrivals from slow stops with gently squeaking handbrakes to heavy stuttering skids.

    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

    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.

  • The Babies & Kids SFX Library contains a variety of recorded baby and kid vocalizations from children ages six months, three years, and five years old.

    The recordings in this library include breathing, cooing, coughing, fussing, grunting, squealing, laughing, sneezing, animal impressions, babbling, growling, pouting, screaming, singing, spitting, whimpering, whining, yelling, and more.

    In addition to a wide range of vocalizations appropriate to their ages, the older kids were asked to also perform like younger babies–giving you the superior performance of an older child but the feel of a baby. All sounds easily pitch up or down to be useful for a wider range of ages.

    All performances are non-English. Talking, singing, babbling, etc. were performed with nonsense words so the files may be used for post-production without the need to replace in an M&E.

  • The Tommy Gun sound effects library features 42 recordings of the historic weapon, ready to electrify your projects with this iconic American firearm. While the Thompson Submachine Gun was used primarily in the 1920’s and ‘30’s, the firing, bullet pass-bys, and ricochet sounds from the ‘Chicago Typewriter’ can be used for guns of any time period.

    Recorded to tape by renowned sound artist Andy Aaron (Scarface, Apocalypse Now, Return of the Jedi), these characterful gunshot sounds feature both single shots, bursts of various lengths, and fully automatic gun fire. The collection was recorded in a secluded forest in Woodstock, NY, complete with firing targets including cans, broken furniture, a washing machine, and glass bottles of “shooting beer” (not to be confused with “”drinking beer””) The session came to an abrupt end when a stray bullet severed an audio cable near a target.

    Complemented by sounds of metal impacts, glass and dirt debris, bullet pass-bys, these gun recordings will add explosive energy to your scenes that feature old-school gangsters, mob/mafia members, World War II soldiers — as well as contemporary gun-wielders. Each sound file is embedded with rich, descriptive metadata for fast, intuitive search results to help increase efficiency and sustain creativity.

    • 42 sound effects (86MB)
    • 16-bit/48kHz broadcast .wav files

  • Mountain Rivers sound effects library is about strong, running water, which gains its power from waterfalls. The water falls from big heights and after it comes to the earth, it continues as a fast creek with a lot of water, or as we say “mountain river”. These recordings were made in the one of the most beautiful places in the World, Yosemite National Park.

    In the centre of Yosemite Park we can find Merced River (which is 145 miles / 233 km long), surrounded by mountains and waterfalls. Recordings of the Merced River were made from 12 various points and some of them includes recordings which were made with various distances. Also the Mountain Rivers library contains recordings from the bottom of two waterfalls: Bridalveil and Yosemite. Most of these waterfalls recordings were made from the middle of the bridges, the best place for getting awesome panoramic atmosphere.

    Mountain Rivers Included:

    Bridalveil Fall Bottom (Bridalveil Creek): 3 recordings from 2 bridges and a 4th recording from the side of the mountain river.
    Merced River: 12 recordings from 8 points include 1 / 5 / 15 / 20 / 50 meter distances from the mountain river.
    Yosemite Fall Bottom (Yosemite Fall Creek): 2 recordings from the bridge in the centre of the mountain river from 2 meters and additional recordings where river was surrounded by rocks with great and unique reverb effect.

  • I can't tell you the number of times I've needed a good clean suburban atmos to fill out a scene. I've got plenty in my sfx collection, but not a whole lot that are local to Australia. So I thought I'd remedy that!

    This collection covers a variety of locations, from quieter suburbs with a gentle breeze, a distant dog, some crickets perhaps and maybe a few birds, to the more densely populated areas, where the traffic and background noise is much higher and some construction is always going on. There some nighttime stuff in there, some ocean side, some with nature at its finest and even lawnmower and whipper snipper recordings so you can layer it all up.

    All recorded at 24bit/96kHz, the library is 2.5GB and contains 36 tracks.

  • This Double Bass & Violin sound effects library not only includes weird low double bass bow strokes, stabs, vibrating strings, drones, harsh harmonics, string scrapes, bow stroke voices, and bright violin tones and screams. It also includes the opportunity to open up a whole new set of sonic adventures.

    Why? All double bass sounds have been recorded at 192K/24 bit, with an amazing stereo set of close up Sanken CO100K microphones, and a stereo set of Sennheiser Mkh 8020 microphones, capturing low end and room. All violin sounds have been recorded with a single Sanken CO100K microphone.

    Common for all Sanken files is that you're able to either extreme time stretch/time compress, or pitch up and down the files, and by this discover a whole new world of sounds – without adding nasty degenerating artifacts or muffling the sound. The ultra-high frequency range of the Sanken microphones does really make a great difference!

    Recordings these sounds was a pure blast. The amount of versatile organic material in the set is great. The bass instrument has been played in a very innovative way, using both regular bow on strings and bass body, but also finger cymbals attached to specific places for a vibrating ring or rattle noise, creating some really other-worldly sound effects, and almost vocal-like patterns.

    While the double bass material produces a massive low end without any further processing, the violin recordings really benefit from being stretched and pitched. This makes all the non-audible bright sounds captured by the Sanken microphones come through.
