Newsreel Noises features a collection of unwanted Noises, Rumbles, Hums & Crackles – collected when digging through copies of newsreels from the the 40ies and 50ies of the last century. Whenever such a newsreel starts or ends a lot of sidenoises occur and each one plays another pattern of mysterious sounds. The library is organised into 10 categories:
* Cadenced, Crackle, Hum, Impulse, Noise, Pulsed, Rattle, Rhythmical, Shuttle, Tonal
The library delivers more than 150 WAV-files with embedded loop points. Each file has a descriptive name where the first part describes the strongest element of the sound and the second part gives additional informations about the structure of each sound.
This library is loaded with some beefy, old-school, mechanical interfacing: buttons, switches, knobs and levers.
Impressive sounds of Express, Freight and Passenger trains. The library features situations like Approaches and Stops, Express Trains, Freight Trains, Local Trains, Locomotives, Close Miking – for a total of an hour and a half of train sounds!

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.
