Let’s step into the wonderful world of classic hardware reverbs. The Lexicon legends; the 960, the 480L, the PCM90 and so forth used in thousands of tracks across tens of thousands of albums, and a number of the world’s’ greatest hits. Everyone knows what’s special about them, and how good they sound. We just love the natural beauty of the “Lexicon 960”, “Lexicon 480L” and “Lexicon PCM90”.
However, instead of giving you our sampled Impulse Responses from those marvelous pieces of audio engineering, we decided to step up the game and combine them into one new device. All three of them were combined into one product, thanks to the use of FFT algorithms and complex audio processing aimed for precision and sound quality.
The final result is just astonishing, we named it “Lexi”; a new hybrid with a natural and richer sound that keeps the warm tonal character of the classics. Our team also couldn’t resist to the temptation to push our audio-processing scripts to the limits, so you not only get the great sounding regulars, but also a few of the modern (both brighter and way deeper) Impulse tones that those original devices couldn’t produce. Now it’s your turn to decide which way you use them. Will it be the remaster of a classic rock song or the new EDM club hit? The decision is truly yours.
Have you ever wanted waterfall recordings with character, and texture, as opposed to hours of white noise?

Recorded from different perspectives, distances and angles, over an hour and a half of recordings have been edited down to just over 11 minutes of audio at 24bit/96kHz, containing the essence of the waterfall.
The files are tagged with rich SoundMiner metadata, explaining in detail the perspective from which each sound was recorded.

This library features recordings of a turbine warehouse specializing in refining gasoline. In these recordings you will hear metal lathes, compressors, soldering, and other mechanical movement. This library was recorded at 3 different perspectives.
All sounds in this collection are in stereo 24bit 192khz Broadcast Wave format. Files are in a zip file, which includes a PDF with detailed metadata.
This library features recordings created using a “Knas Ekdahl Moisturizer”, a boutique spring reverb effects unit where three reverb springs are exposed, allowing them to be hit, played, and manipulated in real time.
The unit also includes a multi-mode analog filter, and when combined with the playability of the springs, opens up many sound creation options.
The result is a unique sound effect library of massive metallic hits, clangs, scrapes, plucks, bounces, and rattles. The springs were played like a percussion instrument, using a collection of found objects, such as hammers, mallets, allen wrenches, forks, and plastic / metal rods. The springs were also stretched to alter the pitch, and objects were placed on the springs, much like a prepared piano, to alter the sound.
No other effects were applied other than the built-in multimode filter (high pass, low pass, band pass, and resonance) on certain sounds. These include sub-sonic hits, sweeping filtered metallic scrapes, and drones that round out the collection.
This collection gets you more than 9000 fabric sounds recorded in isolation – for when you just don’t have access to a quiet enough space to record subtle foley movements.
Designed with the idea that they can be combined in infinite ways to cover any movement you may need, it was recorded with a variety of microphones to provide multiple perspectives and cut down on time spent matching into the mix.
It contains a wealth of fabric types, movements, rubs, rustles, tears and rips, and even a few zippers/buttons/velcro strips to give you the coverage you need.

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.
