Get the sound of rain – recorded from an interior perspective.
This library contains various types and intensities of rain, from soft dripping to downpour, and the files are long enough to cover the rainbursts from start to end. Most of the files are also easily loopable.
Some of the sounds are recorded with closed windows for a realistic indoor perspective. In other takes a window is left ajar to enhance the sound of the rain outside and four files gives you an exterior perspective from a porch.
Locations covered: two greenhouses, two cars, a privy, a shed, a boathouse, a variety of rooms and roof materials.
Thunders, rain and storms are great natural recordings, and this library features a wide view of Spanish storms! The sounds include electrical thunders, rain storms, close thunders and more, recorded since 2009 in Spain.
All the files have metadata embedded for great Soundminer type programs. They both include Spanish and English descriptions.
Spanning five years of meticulous field recordings “Rain, Rivers & Waves” gets you nearly 8 GB of pristine water sounds in all shapes and sizes.

The sounds are categorized into 3 folders: Designed, Indoor & Outdoor.
Recorded in Eastern Oregon’s Great Basin and High Desert Region – classic sounds of the American West, forest or desert.
These tracks are stripped highlights from the hundreds of hours of field recordings I use to make my films. A number of them include the birds fluttering and making deep natural calls right next to the recorder – about as close as you can hope to get of birds in the wild.
A variety of Raven vocal sounds recorded around a Greenlandic dog pen. Includes multiple 1-5 minute files as well as short isolated honks, squawks, calls, clips, and purrs. Recorded with 2x Sennheiser 8040 in a Cinela ORTF blimp on a straight microphone stand with a Mixpre – 3 at 24b/96k
When recording and collecting sound effects, you end up with a lot of noise: Microphone hits, Plosives, Wind pops, rattles, drops. Just plain noise.
These unwanted orphan sounds often get deleted, or end up in a some forgotten folder. Then sometimes you need a sound. A timbre that you just can't name. A raw sound that though manipulation, can become new and remarkable. That's what this SFX library is: Raw, dirty, short sounds that in the right hands – your hands – have potential. Raw Noise features 40 HD 24bit/96khz compilation tracks with a large selection of Hits, pops, plosives and transient sounds, ready for manipulation.
Most of the sounds are short, a second or two. Organized into loose categories to encourage new discoveries and new possibilities. The demo track features selections of the tracks, so you can hear the sounds as they are presented.

ReCenter automatically repairs off-center stereo recordings while keeping the original stereo width which makes it an invaluable time-saver and a perfect tool for professional post-production. Fix off-centered stereo field recordings, dynamically center vocal artists or musicians that moved around the stage or center hard directional effects like drive-bys and stereo whooshes. ReCenter makes tedious panning automation obsolete so you can focus on your creative flow.
What is RECENTER?
ReCenter is a stereo processor that rotates an incoming stereo signal to the center or a given angle without altering the stereo width. Having the incoming signal centered, you can narrow or widen the stereo image within ReCenter. For a better low frequency control you can mono the original signal below a set frequency. A multiband processing option intelligently shifts more complicated signals.
DYNAMICALLY CORRECT STEREO IMAGES
Have you ever worked with stereo material that was not centered correctly? Pointing a stereo microphone a hundred percent accurately onto a sound source gets harder the further away the source is. As a result, you get a recording with a constantly shifting center that would require you to manually adjust and automate the panning over the whole recording. ReCenter continuously analyzes the directionality of a stereo or M/S signal and rotates it to a given target angle in real-time – without narrowing the stereo image.
GOOD-BYE CORRECTIVE PANNING
Correct poorly aimed or moving stereo recordings while skipping the time-consuming and most often ineffective pan automation process. All you need to do ist tell ReCenter how hard, fast and precisely it should adjust your signal.
• Dynamically create convenient stereo images
• Once the center is restored, precisely alter the stereo image
• Input stereo or M/S signals
• Mono filter below certain frequencies
• Multiband mode for heavy-duty applications
• Widen or narrow the centered stereo image
• Shift the output angle to left or right
• Easily correct any stereo recording, where the microphone angle was off
• Dynamically center a vocal artist that moved around the stage while performing
• Center stereo whooshes, drive- or fly-bys and other hard directional effects
• Widen instrument recordings while keeping a perfect stereophonic balance
Another electromechanical-focused library from SkewSound! Our reel2reel Sound Library features a professional tape machine from the 1980s. We captured all the sounds this little (well, actually quite large and heavy) piece of gear could create.
DC motors, servos, tape spinning, metal impacts, and more can be found within this library.
And if you are on the hunt for some huge, analog style mechanical buttons, you should hear what this library has to offer.
Reformer Pro allows sound designers, producers, musicians and performers to design, automate and perform any sound in real-time, like never before.
Whether you already hear the sound in your mind, or you’re looking to experiment and search for the never-before-heard, Reformer Pro gives you powerful sonic tools to bring your sound to life.
Reformer Pro also utilises the world’s first Dynamic Input technology, taking procedural, sample-based audio processing to new heights and into previously unexplored territory.
VST/AU/AAX plugin comes with the Krotos Bundle for FREE (Regular price $449) . That’s over 3.8 GB of high-fidelity sounds to get you started.
Not looking for eerie, creepy, glitchy, droney, moody, cinematic, terrific, dark or bright roomtones? You just need regular roomtones to mix with dialogue and/or to fill in a scene? Regular Roomtones provides just that; regular boring ass roomtones, meticulously edited to loop seamlessly!
The roomtones have been collected over a few years, recorded in different locations wherever I happened to be that day. The filenames have the recording location in them, but the sounds can, of course, be used for other locations as well.
The files have been normalized to be between 35-40 LUFS and will in most cases need to be turned down in volume. The files are 24 Bit and 48 kHz, some mono some stereo, all of them with embedded metadata.
This collection of sounds include a variety of ambiences, drones, and room tones recorded during a relaxing SPA day in Zamora, Spain. 17 tracks recorded in different spaces (Dressing Rooms, Jacuzzi, Sauna, etc) . Room Tones, Drones and Ambiences recorded and edited for audio atmos designers. SURROUND, DMS and ST VERSIONS INCLUDED, and all the files have metadata embedded for Soundminer and similar programs. They both include Spanish and English descriptions.
Remington Rand is an early American typewriter and adding machine manufacturer formed in 1927. The last Remington Rand branded business machine rolled off the line in 1958. The adding machine that we acquired was an electric version in good working condition. Remington Rand also manufactured things like shavers, pistols and calculators.
Our adding machine has a big electronic mechanism for the summing function and nice heavy clacks for the regular keys. It also had some very sticky metal plates that would occasionally get stuck and then pop loose with a big resonant ringing sound. This specific defect made an incredibly interesting sound that is very unique to this specific machine’s wear and tear.
As with the Burroughs Protectograph we miked it with three different mono perspectives to produce three very different sounds on each move. We used Schoeps CMC6/MK4 mics on the front and back and an AT4050 for the wide perspective in mono. The close perspectives are great for big thick clicks and mechanisms, and the wide is excellent for use in one offs for bgfx tracks.
This bundle was built with 4 different car libraries:
In this 102 minutes long sound library (without RAW files) you will find 16 designed and 32 raw engine sounds recorded onboard, 26 pass by and engine exterior sounds, 17 foley files and 9 engine interior recorded inside vehicles cabin in sync with microphones under the hood.
In this 88 minutes long sound library you will find engine recorded onboard and outside, passby sounds, foley and engine recorded inside vehicles cabin in sync with microphones under the hood.
The Renault Kangoo 1.6 16V sound library features 227 96kHz/24 bit WAV files (including RAW files, for design purpose) recorded with 2 Sound Devices 702, 2 Sennheiser MKH 8040 microphones, Rode NTG3, 2 DPA 4061 and Sony PCM-M10 recorder. This library covers sounds of regular driving, slow and fast accelerating recorded under the hood and inside a drivers cabin at the same time, so the files are in sync and ready to edit in your DAW. In addition this library features exterior recordings, from slow passes through medium and fast ones, reverse sounds, doppler effects, braking and idle, driving away and more.
Everything was recorded from 3 perspectives with different equipment. Mono recordings followed the car all the time, and were recorded with NTG3. Stereo ones were recorded with Sony PCM-M10 and Sennheisers MKH 8040 in ORTF. Those microphones were standing still, capturing the car passes from left to right.
Last but not least, foley. This library covers different actions, like opening and closing doors recorded from the interior and exterior perspectives, opening and closing slide doors, hood, back doors and windows. Pulling and releasing the hand brake, AC fans, buttons and switches, emergency and turning lights, opening and closing glove compartment and more.
The total length of the files is 142 minutes (without RAW files). In addition to the cleaned and premixed files, you will receive Engine RAW recordings as a separate download link. Thanks to those files you can design the engine or interior sounds the way you like.
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.

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.
