This library is quite self explanatory, ” Planes – Takeoffs & Landings ” is a collection of various commercial jets taking off and landing on a runway.
We recorded as close as possible to the airport fences with a multi microphones setup giving you different sonic perspectives.
The “Source” folder contains 130 files corresponding to 34 different recordings :
– AB stereo (LOM Usi)
– Cinela LCR array (Sennheiser MKH8040 ORTF + MKH8050 Center)
– a shotgun mic following the plane (Neumann KMR81)
The “ Designed” folder contains 46 files / 28 processed sounds such as fast jet fly by or sonic boom.
All the files are 96kHz /24bits and embedded with rich metadata ( Soundminer, Basehead, iXML ) .
Planes Passbys is a quick pack of 20 pass-bys from interior and exterior perspectives.
These recordings are clean of distractions like birds, traffic, wind, and crowds, and they gracefully pan for a realistic sounds image. Rather than spend all day chasing planes with Plane Finder, give this library a listen.
Perfect to use and tweak if you need a spaceship flying (or another flying transportation) over your head!

From ear-splitting squeaks and noisy cracks to the crunching of a sheet beneath a foot and much more, this library contains a vast collection of polystyrene sounds. but can also be used without the plugin
Works great with Reformer Pro but if you don’t own the plugin, you can still purchase and use the sounds in this pack separately.
Hopefully, the name says it all. I took a claw hammer, saw, metal bar and my hands to various different types of polystyrene (packing peanuts, big stiff packing material and softer packing material) and wrenched lots of weird sounds out of them. Plenty of squeaky gross crunches and cracks useful for sweetening bone breaks, impacts and other gore stuff if you’re bored of celery and cabbages! Also good for sweetening up other foley stuff too and lots of the recordings contain lots of high frequency, squealy material which is fun for pitching. I included some designed stuff as well including a few UI bits, some pitched impacts, weird alien bug wings and various other bits and bobs. Recorded at 96Khz/24 Bit and processed in Reaper and RX.

The “Cedar” library series is a collection of libraries, comprised of three different instruments:
– Ponticello (the present one)
– Sul Tasto
Each volume is a single Kontakt instrument with a peculiar timbral personality. The entire series is created recording sounds from a luthier classical guitar. They can be used for composing and producing purposes – like an acoustic percussion setup – as well as for soundtrack composition and sound design in films, video games and any other multimedia product. “Ponticello” and “Sul Tasto” also feature a dedicated effects page that can be used to process the sounds in the library with several processors, both send and insert effects. They are “percussion oriented” sounds, while “Bizzarro” is a keyboard instrument.
Introduction to “Ponticello”
The instrument contains 10 sets of sounds, called “Engines”. Each set has a dedicated channel strip in the interface and can be processed with a dedicated sub-page. You can also choose an individual audio output for further processing in your favorite DAW with effect plugins of your choice. Each sound has been recorded with two different mic placements, and you can mix them to your taste.
Expand your sonic arsenal with this collection of pony whinnies, nickers and blows. 24bit, 96kHz reflection-free recordings means they’re great for creature sound design.

Two Guys, three microphones, and a mountain of bubble wrap. What else to do but record the knuckle popping, transient heavy, tiny air explosion created by the ever calming sound of Bubble Wrap. This library was recorded in collaboration another fan of Bubble Wrap, Adam Carl. Microphones used was the Sennheiser MKH60, Sennheiser MKH8050- both exported as mono .wav files. The stereo microphone used and exported was the Audio Technica AT2022. How many variations of popping can you create? Between the two versions included in this pack, original and reduced reverb, 2483+ sounds per pack over three microphones 828 sounds per microphone, or 4966 Combined are packed waiting to be popped!
Why did we include almost 3 hours of total sound in a bubble wrap library? When you include the squeaking of blowing on the corners or rubbing two bubbles between fingers, clicking a pen pops, popping using a drill, and even filling the bubble with water using a syringe. Other secret sounds include popping inside a metal trash can- similar to sounds of bullets ricocheting off metal, popping wrapped in tin foil, and stretching.
All sounds are exported either in mono (Sennheiser) or stereo (Audio Technica) and meta-data tagged using Soundly and Basehead.
Great sweeteners to toughen up your explosions, glass debris, and even armor moves.

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.
