This sound collection covers a wide range of sounds produced by the Vintage 125CC motorcycle Vespa 1962 . All sounds recorded with high end equipment – 24 bit and 96KHz
All the files are mono. The stereo impression in the demo is created by means of panning.
In this collection of high quality sound-recordings you’ll find several tandem and multitrack recordings. Please note that phasing issues between the MKH 8070 and the DPA4061’s are perfectly normal because of fluctuating time differences. The 4061’s are always onboard, fixed and in phase in contrast to the MKH8070 which was handheld on the roadside or handheld pointing at the exhaust while driving along as a passenger.
Besides that also important to note:
The 5 LOOPED SOUNDS are not unique. They
are edits from the larger driving sounds. I just put these in for your convenience should you
quickly need some loops for your project. This is also true for one of the the Revs soundfiles.
(Heavy revs) I thought I just cut this one too for your convenience to quickly have a list of all
relevant revs in this library. So those six soundfiles are the only double content.
The Vibrant Game library delivers sounds are inspired by hit app games like Bejeweled and Color Switch. You’ll immediately find a bank of lovable game sounds that users will recognize, enjoy and connect with.

Vibration is 40 minutes/676 MB of vibrating, rattling and resonating metal and plastic panels in 96 separate files – recorded in 24bit/96kHz using contact microphones.
This is a collection of sounds that rattle, clatter, vibrate, buzz, hum and oscillate. Think huge cargo vehicles, passenger ferries or mechanical installations with loose metal panels, resonating generators and such. The vibrating was done with a 100 watt tactile transducer (like a bass speaker with no cone) hooked up to an amplifier, and getting it's signal from a modular synth. Frequencies from LFO's and VCO's were mixed, to get interesting vibrations in both sub-audio and audio range.
Holding the transducer by hand allowed me to move it around and find the sweet spots on the various objects (a steel filing cabinet, a steel suitcase and a spring reverb tank come to mind). Depending on the amplitude of the input signal, different sounds would emerge from the same waveforms. Now and again, the transducer would get too hot to handle, and on one or two occasions, the thermo-relay on the amp would kick in. Excitement in the studio!
Contact microphones allow us to record vibrations and resonances in solid objects
The resulting spectrum is rich in low-end and has impressive dynamics. This could easily expand your sound toolkit with a great number of interesting elements and textures for any kind of SFX production: Movies, TV, trailers, game audio, electronic music and so on.
I picked up lots of wood, metal, plastic and many other objects (including bats on old attic) to record this library, which is divided into categories, like: bow, brush, debris, hit, hum, metal, ratchet, scrape, spin, water and etc.
All recordings were made at 96 kHz sample rate for further manipulation, and they’re categorized by source objects and contain metadata.
If you are looking for nice addition to your SFX production arsenal – this library is for you!
This sound library is entirely based on the Victor adding machine, made in the 1920s. This machine was purely mechanical and non-electric. In this sound library you'll get individual recordings of the machine's hand crank, printer, paper, and button/keys tracks as well as six complete recordings of the adding machine in full action. The library also contains five different mic positions with two different mic techniques used.
These effects were recorded in a Victorian Town House in London, England. The house has been pretty much preserved from the day when its first owner died, with the original furniture, decorations and facilities.
Now a museum, I was granted access for a couple of hours one morning and I went from the basement to the top floor, recording the various doorbells and servants bells along with some of the old and heavy wooden doors. The bells are connected to various parts of the house by wires that run under the floorboards and are operated by a bell pull or handle in the rooms and at the front and rear doors of the house.
There are eight different bells, five in the basement and three in the attic rooms, all recorded at different lengths and intensities, a dinner gong and six doors, with openings and closings of different intensities. There are 111 effects in all, recorded at 96/24 Later that year, I stayed in an old tenement house in Edinburgh, Scotland, where almost every door creaked wonderfully.
These effects were recorded at 48/24 and are included as a bonus to the main collection. There’s also a couple of big metal door slams thrown in for good measure.
A mixture of field recordings from the characteristic Vegas model from Victory motorcycles.
Includes onboard riding takes, as well as exterior passes by, approaches, and departures. Onboard takes are provided in a split left-right configuration as well as a mixed version.

The Dot Matrix sound effects library is made up of two parts: A full 3-minute recording of an Epson LQ 570 dot matrix printer at work and 511 short files meticulously edited to isolate each movement that the device makes whilst printing. These movements have been categorised into 5 different folders:
1) Short bursts, with 295 different variations
2) Double bursts, with 25 different variations
3) Triple bursts, with 98 different variations
4) Long bursts, with 45 different variations
5) Servo sounds, with 48 different variations
The recordings have not been manipulated in any way other than being edited into smaller files, as to not limit your options when using the sounds creatively.
In total, you will receive 512 .wav files, each containing SoundMiner metadata, recorded at 96k/24bit in order to allow for a high level of manipulation.
Vintage Telephones SFX library contains 244 sounds extracted from 10 historic, rotary dial devices designed between the 1880s and 1980s. Inside, you’ll find three common ringing patterns (used in the USA, Australia, and Europe) for each telephone type, handset pickups/set downs, number dials 1-0, hook toggles, as well as single ringings with natural long ring decays to design your own ring timings according to your project needs.
In addition to the standard telephone sounds, we captured some experimental ones, which were generated by feeding the devices with random low frequencies, thus producing some really weird mechanical rattles, buzzes, glitches, and unusual bell ringings.
Vinyl Record Noise is the first sound library from Oddball Audio. The library features eleven 10” blank records recorded from start to finish at 45rpm. The records were cut and pressed by Lathecuts in Arizona using a myriad of techniques to get the most surface noise, pops, crackles, and hiss for your sound design pleasure. In the cutting process they used four different lathes with varying noise floors and records made from many types of materials.
The library is perfect for use in any project that may need vinyl records to give it that vintage feel! Additionally these samples are great to use in granular processing, music, or to add subtle layers to a burning fire.
At a glance:
FOOTSTEPS is practically a whole rack of shoes compiled into one single outstanding playable KONTAKT 5 instrument: it comprises boots, dress shoes, high heels, leather shoes and sneakers. We got accurate recordings of paces on all sorts of different grounds: wood, concrete, gravel, metal, sand and parquet. In addition, we added a lot of generic sound layers that can be easily added to the mix. Those layers include sounds of cloth, leather, metal, grass, water and snow.
Virtual UI is a library of over 500 high-tech user interface sounds.

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!
A Sound Effect is a great resource for keeping up on what's out there in the SFX library world. The site is well organized and it's easy to find stuff.
I love the behind the scenes articles - and the ability to purchase directly through the site is super convenient. The process is very straight forward and painless. I recommend it all the time.
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.
