Most of the sounds were recorded in authentic medieval environments in Germany. We went out to visit medieval heritage sites like ruins and castles. For the market place recordings we went to farmers markets around the cathedral in Mainz, Germany that was built around 975 A.D. A perfect place to capture the spirit of medieval market places.
On our trip we recorded the hard life of people living in this era. We recorded medieval farm sounds like animals, mechanics of old tools, hurly-burly on marketplaces, blacksmiths hammering metal and working with wood, church bells, voices and a lot more.

Recording of a Mercedes L3750 3.5 ton truck from 1945 with a diesel 4900 cm3 4-cylinder engine with 75hp and 4 gears.
The Mercedes L3750 3.5 ton truck sound library includes 379 clips in 29.75 gigabytes of audio. It showcases the sound of a 1945 German vehicle with a diesel 4900 cm3 4-cylinder engine with 75hp and 4 gears.
The collection gathers 11 synchronized takes from 16 onboard and 10 exterior perspectives. The 21 onboard channels present recordings from the engine, interior, exhaust, and flatbed as the car drives with steady RPMs, gearshifts, and ramps. The 17 exterior channels depict driving at slow, medium, and fast speeds as the truck departs, arrives, and passes. Also included are performed effects of switches, pedals, doors, and more.
The bundle is delivered with Pro Tools and Reaper mixing sessions, custom mixes of the onboard recordings, 18+ fields of Soundminer, BWAV, and MacOS Finder metadata, impulse responses of the interior cabin, and metadata import files in 7 languages.
Inspired by the ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) community, this collection includes 43 mono/stereo pairs of whispers, scratches, taps, rubs, breathing, buzzing, and more. The general goal of ASMR is to induce a bodily response from the auditory stimuli, much like a shiver, chill, or euphoric wave. From an auditory perspective, this is usually approached by using delicate, intimate sounds in a repetitive manner; known as 'triggers'.
The files are all loopable, averaging ~2'20″ in length, so you can leave them on repeat for a continuous ASMR experience. This also allows a sound designer to drop them into any environment where they need an indiscernible loop. The mono+stereo pairing allows for creating the appropriate stereo spread (or eliminating it all together) that a particular event requires. For some of the more common triggers, we provided a few variations.
Definitely intending to be a unique addition to your sonic anthology, this library will provide you with hours of evocative ear candy.
METAL delivers various metal sound effects and textures of hard and soft metal: The SFX library includes different sounds of metal impacts and bangs, forging, debris, big metal objects, anvil, hammers, chains and metal scratching noises.
Metal Atmosphere is a collection of contact microphone recordings of wire fences vibrating in the wind.
The library consists of 29 recordings ranging from 1 minute to over 10 minutes in length. These have been recorded by taping JrF contact microphones to wire fences and other structures through which sound travels easily.
Most of the sounds are made by the wind “playing” the wires as a huge stringed instrument, while a few others are recordings of submerged wooden fences. The tone is generally dark, even menacing, bringing desolate spaces to mind.
The sounds can be used as backgrounds even if they technically aren’t proper ambiences, as there is a certain degree of similarity between the two channels which creates a fake stereo field. About half of the files also include wind gusts and wind-specific dynamics which renders them easily identifiable as wind sounds, only with extra metal elements added. Additionally there are countless impacts, risers and swells included which can easily be cut out and used as spot effects. All files are recorded and mastered at 24/96 quality which makes them excellent sound design elements ripe for serious processing.
In total, more than 2 hours of metal atmospheres and resonances from unique sources – tagged with comprehensive metadata.
Metal Bars & Bells: 49 shimmering, oscillating bell-like sounds from various metal objects.
No actual bells were harmed in the making of these sounds – but several other metal objects were. Crow bars and stainless steel soap trays are some of the sources of these beautiful, resonant sounds; ranging from clear, distinct glockenspiel-ish, to shimmering, modulated otherworldliness. If you've ever wanted to add square tubular bells or wrought-iron percussion to your mix, then this is your thing.
• Clean, high quality sounds
• All files trimmed to start, for ease of use in samplers
• Several variations per recorded object = organic and expressive productions
• Metadata included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats
• Add delay & reverb, put on headphones and…Heaven…
The Metal Contact sound library features the recordings of various metal surfaces tortured with different tools. From touching things with fingers, through hitting with metal bars and up to using blenders or magnets to cause the materials to resonate.
While recording this library my goal was to cover different needs, not only for sound designers but also editors. Scrapes and squeaks were recorded with different intensity and speeds, just like the impacts. From soft and quiet, through medium up to loud and reverberant ones.
In addition to the regular approach of just touching, hitting and scraping metal parts, I’ve decided to record few experimental sound effects. Listening to the tons of water flowing through a dam, by sticking the microphones to the building’s wall? You got it. Messing with guitar strings using a blender and magnets? It’s here. Throwing coins and different metal parts inside cast iron cooking dish? No problem!
Different lids, cast iron dishes, metal pots, baking forms and sheets, bullet catcher, different boxes, cooking oven, sinks, fan, pans, grills, coins, small tools, different jugs, electric guitar, buckets, washing machine, metal parts, old doors and walls, road sign, handrails, cages and much more.
• In Metal Corral, get a visceral collection of metallic screeches from a corral on a working cattle ranch. Wail on the paddock sections with a t-post and hear guttural resonances from 50 interlocking sections. Hear latches clacking with frenetic vigor and clanging metallic booms. Hear thick, tonal growls resonating like fog horns and single squeaks stuttering with real grit. Hear gates grating with the visceral sound of an iceberg tearing through the Titanic.
• This library offers you an extensive collection of metals painstakingly performed to bring these inanimate objects to life and transform them into intensely gritty living textures.
2% FOR THE ENVIRONMENT & CARBON NEUTRAL:
• Two percent of the price of this library is donated to an environmental cause, as an “artist royalty” for the planet!
• Carbon offset credits were purchased to offset my field recording travel for this library.
This bundle includes our popular Metal source material library and ALL future derived sound design libraries from Metal Hits, Scrapes & Squeaks. The first derived library is Metal Souls.
The Metal Forge ensemble included is a simplified version of our Forge ensemble. It comes pre-loaded with various Metal samples for the ability to quickly create new sounds from the provided material.
I spent a great deal of time exploring pitch manipulation with this library. Much of it relied on rendered processing to acquire the aesthetic that I wanted. My vision was to make something ethereal and vocal but also a bit vague.
Metal Hits, Scrapes & Squeaks
Props include objects such as sheet metal, sledgehammers, paint cans, metal buckets, metal grating, metal marbles, cups, pots and pans, dry ice (contributing squeaks and squeals), metal bars, metal stands, chains and more.
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.
