If you're after electromagnetic sounds, this library delivers: Captured with The LOM Elektrosluch 3+ throughout 2015. The sounds heard with this special piece of equipment are other-worldly, ghostly and oftentimes, scary. If you haven't managed to get your hands on one yet, or missed out while pre-orders we're presenting this library as the definitive Elektrosluch 3+ sound. Hear the analog and digital: screaming whirls of electronic servo motors, the intense hum and whoosh of new and old transformers, and the pained glitching of processors and data paths of a circuit-bent Furby.
We have designed this library to be as useful and versatile as possible to be used in every application, from television, music sampling, theatre, to film. We recorded, edited and hand-picked a selection of science fiction-inspired electrical props in order to obtain the best sound sources for this library. All sounds have not been processed through special effects processors, they are simply the sounds of Electromagnetic Fields, recorded with a LOM Elektrosluch 3+.

Hear the magnetic tension of a public bus, the grind and stress of a lint shaver servo, and the soft intricate pulses and rhythms of computer processors.

MaK is a Kontakt instrument which replicates the sounds of a person using various computer keyboards, mice, or touchscreen devices. This allows you to very quickly perform the foley of using one of these devices via midi.
There are 15 devices available in MaK: 5 Keyboards, 5 Mice, 2 Touchscreens, and 3 digital keyboards. Each of these devices has been meticulously recorded at a number of different velocities for a very realistic playback performance.
The majority of the devices have 5 velocity layers; from soft to hard. Each of these velocity layers have 32 different samples: 16 for the press sound, and 16 for the release sounds of each device. That’s 160 samples per device! MaK will randomly trigger press and release samples for each layer based on the velocity you play the notes. Easy to use controls allow you to adjust additional layers of randomness in both velocity and pitch. All of this adds up to realistic devices, and convincing performance. This library requires the full version of NI Kontakt (not included)

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.
