Suburbs of Chicago: Woods is the 6th in the Suburbs of Chicago Series. This pack takes us deep into another suburban forest preserve. This one drapes the sky in tall trees, providing shade and plenty of trails to walk through. Watch out for small critters jumping around as one recording in this pack caught a squirrel hopping through tall grass and weeds. There are plenty of grass and leaves rustles along with bird chirps. There is also a recording over 10 minutes at the intersection, filled with passing and idle vehicles, right out side the wooded forest preserve. Recorded at 24 bit, 192 kHz using the Sennheiser MKH8050 and MKH30 into a Sound Devices Mix Pre-6.
Over an hour and a half of recordings, all metadata tagged using Basehead and Soundly. As in the all the other packs in this series, you will hear distant traffic and planes throughout.
“He who squeaks you controls you!” – ancient squeaky proverb
A whole bunch of squeaks in a nice little set of folders. That’s TWO squeaky libraries that do the work for you. Included in this bundle are:
SQUEAKY TOYS: Looking for funny, squeaky sound effects? This library by George Hufnagl delivers them by the bucket: Whether it’s a rubber bone, cloth dog, or a giant flamingo, over 16 Minutes of squawks, honks and wheezes await your squeaky, sound effects needs. Squeezed, shaken, and stomped, all 190 stereo files include metadata at 96kHz, 24bit recording quality.
SQUEAKY CREATURES: A fun, raucous library that offers you nearly 600 sound files of chattering, gabbing, squawking nonsense to use for your cute critters in any media landscape. Use them as one-off emotes or sew them together for complex, expressive phrases. However you use it, this misfit squeaker gang will ensure that your fictional specimens will communicate in cute, boisterous tones that will carry across a crowded room full of adorable little monsters.
Scare Tactics is a collection of unsettling atonal textures, menacing drones, abstract hits and ghostly transitions, providing all of the elements needed to construct convincingly creepy horror scenes full of dark ambience, jump scares and ominous presence.
Created using a combination of heavily-processed string instruments, manipulated field recordings and cutting-edge synthesis techniques, these production-ready sounds can be dropped straight into your project out of the box or further tweaked and tailored to your liking with your tools of choice.

I spent a great deal of time exploring pitch manipulation with this library. Much of it relied on rendered processing to acquire the aesthetic that I wanted. My vision was to make something ethereal and vocal but also a bit vague.
I believe this library will provide excellent source material for a wide variety of applications. Both as stand-alone effects or layered in with other libraries/sounds to help create a dark/spooky aesthetic.
This library contains a large variety of ambiences and drones that stylized as industrial or science fiction.

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.
