Normal, everyday door sounds? Yes – and lots (and lots) of them!
A door opening or closing in a film/tv show/video game can absolutely take you out of the experience if done incorrectly.
At the end of working on Uncharted 4, the last sound I created was a door opening and closing. It was just a normal household door. I couldn't find any good door opening and closing sounds (and creaks…don't get me started). I also didn't have time to go out and record my own source. I was extremely frustrated.
There are a LOT of different types of doors in this world. Most sound libraries try to record ALL varieties of doors. The problem is that you might have a lot of different and unique doors, but only a couple of NORMAL house doors. Or, they just have a couple of NORMAL industrial doors. A sound designer's worst nightmare is lack of variety and choice.
With that in mind, I went on a personal journey to record all the normal doors I could find. I recorded door openings, closings, squeaks and creaks. That's it! I wanted the largest variety of normal house and industrial door openings/closings/creaks/squeaks on the market. For my next projects, I didn't want a door sound getting me frustrated!
• Normal Household Door sound effects
• Normal Industrial Door sound effects
• 1400+ Sounds
• 120+ Doors
• Opening, Closing, Squeaking and Creaking

To build the range and palate of character that we needed for this collection, we transformed community park and green-way bridges into large-scale percussive instruments. We sought out 12 very special bridges in particular locations and sampled many different performances on them to elicit the right sorts of impacts that we were looking for. Each performed impact has 3 layers, 2 mono and 1 stereo, all with different perspectives due to mic placement. These sounds are highly dynamic, containing an artful blend of the locale they were captured in, and can add some very rich color to any explosion, impact, or crushing event in your editing mix. Go ahead and do your best (or worst)!
These sounds can take a beating. Enjoy!

The WORLD WAR 2 TANKS sound effects library delivers a gigantic arsenal of tank sounds, recorded in collaboration with Pole Position Productions (PPP) from Sweden.
You get 8 different tanks to be super-flexible in your military sound design environment. Each tank gives you driveby and onboard maneuvers. The onboard recordings are multi-channel recordings (4x stereo) that enable you to perfectly mix the sounds as you wish.
For example: your interior scene sounds good but you need some more mechanical chain sound? Simply boost the “Tracks” channel in your mix and you're set. You're totally free to give your tank the character it needs.
Whether it's a heavily damaged and slow tank or some massive crawling beasts that will – once at full speed – flatten everything that crosses their way. You're in full control with this SFX library. But there's more. Besides driveby and multi-channel driving sounds, we added some handling sounds and – you'll especially love them – a fine selection of incredible cannon shots.

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.
