  • City Life Pedestrian Streets Play Track 50 sounds included, 127 mins total $45

    Pedestrian Streets is a library of 50 ambiences from around 15 different streets, recorded in about 7 cities mostly in Bulgaria.

    Most recordings are made in late autumn or winter because bird life is minimized. The task of this library is to capture much of the different dynamics of pedestrian streets: from zero activity to busy streets, basically concentrating on light activity periods.

    It’s principally recorded in the morning, and you’ll hear the sounds of single footsteps, light voices, shopping streets, dogs, air conditioners, and more of the sounds of a rising city.

    Another basic idea is the minimal presence of cars (as much as possible). There are also atmospheres with greater dynamism, lively streets and various periods of the day.

    All files are meta-tagged in Soundminer

    Gear used: Sound Devices 633, Edirol R4pro, Neumann KM184 st, Rode NT4, Zoom H4,

  • Environments Forest Ambience One Play Track 21 sounds included, 90+ mins total
    Rated 4.00 out of 5
    $35

    'Forest Ambience One' is the first library in my nature ambience series where I intend to record the vast and unique forests of Finland and their changing sound between the four seasons.

    This library consists of 21 unique pine and birch forest ambiences recorded in Northern Finland during summer. Most of the ambiences have occasional birds in them but I was lucky to capture the sound of the forests without the birds too.

    Due to the varying weather during the summer I also decided to record some of the locations when it was raining lightly and also when the rain had passed to get that after rain dribble.

    The average length of each ambience is between 3-5 minutes so you can easily create your own ambience loops for e.g. video games.

    Forest Ambience One is recorded with Sound Devices 702 and a stereo pair of Sennheiser 8040's in ORTF – and you get the sounds in two formats: 96 kHz, 24 bit and in 44.1 KHz, 16 bit, for more convenient ways of utilizing the sounds in games and other media.

  • Animals & Creatures Urban Crows Play Track 31 sounds included, 90 mins total $29

    Urban Crows is a library full of interesting sounds of single crows and swarms.

    These proud birds deserve a lot more attention than they usually get. They are amazingly intelligent, social and by no means aggressive or monotonous when it comes to their communication capabilities.

    The library evolved throughout winter 2015/16 and was taken from the attic of a house surrounded by trees were the crows frequently stayed overnight. So it was a great pleasure to record them arriving in the evenings as well as hearing them chatting during the dawn. They have a huge arsenal of clearly distinguishable single caws, funny sighs or nervous screams that often evolved to a huge cluster of noises that became stronger when the church bells began to ring and the sun came up.

    All takes are recorded in Mid-Side stereo, with Sennheiser MKH-70 shotgun for a strong mid-signal and AKG-C394B for the ambience. The total playing time of the library is approx. 1h 30min.

  • Environments Auto Workshop Play Track 72+ sounds included, 83 mins total $35

    Want the sounds of a garage / auto repair workshop? The Auto Workshop SFX library features lots of different tool sounds and general ambiences from automotive workshops (originally recorded for scenes in the Bulgarian feature Godless).

    The idea was to capture the sounds at both closeup and off-mic, to be able to fade easily between them. A mono microphone was placed close to the source, and a set of stereo microphones was set up further away, capturing more of the room and echo. The result is very usable, and the ability to fade between closeup and wide shot works very well.

  • Environments Old Cottages Play Track 375 sounds included, 332 mins total From: $136

    The Old Cottages library was recorded in outdoor museums of old cottage houses and in a remote mountain cottage during quiet winter.
    At first, both libraries (Castles and Old Cottages) were planned to create one big old stuff library. But I soon realised that the topic is too wide for one thematic library and sounds recorded in cottages have different character.
    It’s dominated by old creaky wood. And the same as in Castles library, I treated specific ambience of wooden cottages as a part of the sound.

    So again, lots of old wooden doors, with metal bolts. Starting from small to large heavy barn doors, both INT and EXT. Some Background Activities on different kinds of wooden floors, recorded from different POVs, like one floor below, or next door. Some interesting props movements.

    We also performed some of the objects (like doors), creating rhythmic sounds which could work well for any antique rotating, whirling machines.

    We also recorded old machines with gears, which could be very useful for sound design. Using some pitch shifting changes them into another palette of antique sounds.

    Objects and items include:
    Barn door • Bell • Bench • Carriage • Chest • Chimney • Cooker • Curtains • Door • Drawer • Floors, old and creaky • Locker • Old glass • Old wood • Rope maker machine • Staircases • Well • Winch • Windows • Wooden floors • Wooden furniture • Wooden Mechanisms •

    Recording locations include:
    Old Cottages • Old Cottages, upstairs/next-door activity • Staircase / stairwell • Manor • Barn • Mill

    Types of sounds included:
    Doors: 258 files • Window: 10 files • BG Activities: 37 files • Furniture: 10 files • Mechanism: 73 files

    Note:
    You can also get this library along with the Castles library – at a special bundle price. Choose your preferred version below.
