This unique SFX library gets you the close-up engine/rotor sounds of the DJI Phantom 2 multirotor quadcopter. And whether you are working on project that needs the engine sounds of an actual quadcopter drone, or intend to use the recordings as source material for sound design of all kinds of machines – this collection will come in handy:
We recorded static sound perspectives at different speeds, intensities and rotor combinations. The collection includes long recordings at constant speeds, variations on accelerating and decelerating, various maneuvers and random rotor movements.
For even more variety we recorded all of the above with a mix of contact and coil microphones giving you a less realistic, more futuristic sound perspective to the drone’s engine itself, rather than the air movement caused by the rotors. Mix those recordings with the MKH 8040 recordings to create your own blend of engine sounds: be it a drone, spaceship or other types of futuristic vehicles.
Get the sounds of gas and water running through massive and tiny pipes, at three processing sites closed to the public.
This library delivers the sounds of a gas control station, a sewage plant and a waterworks. We recorded the hissing of gas, low drones of water rushing through massive pipes, and the sounds of various stages of sewage processing, recorded indoors and outdoors in multiple locations and rooms throughout the three facilities. The library includes close-up sound effects, indoor and outdoor ambiences, and features ambiences and stereo contact mic recordings of active gas and water pipes, capturing the various resonating pipes in isolation.
Total play time of all recordings is just under 2 hours.
We recorded in the districts: Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain. This Library contains roomtones of a Hospital, a Playground, Trainstations and other crowded places. For further details about the locations, please read the spread-sheet and take a look on the location photos.

This library features recordings created using a “Knas Ekdahl Moisturizer”, a boutique spring reverb effects unit where three reverb springs are exposed, allowing them to be hit, played, and manipulated in real time.
The unit also includes a multi-mode analog filter, and when combined with the playability of the springs, opens up many sound creation options.
The result is a unique sound effect library of massive metallic hits, clangs, scrapes, plucks, bounces, and rattles. The springs were played like a percussion instrument, using a collection of found objects, such as hammers, mallets, allen wrenches, forks, and plastic / metal rods. The springs were also stretched to alter the pitch, and objects were placed on the springs, much like a prepared piano, to alter the sound.
No other effects were applied other than the built-in multimode filter (high pass, low pass, band pass, and resonance) on certain sounds. These include sub-sonic hits, sweeping filtered metallic scrapes, and drones that round out the collection.
Daily Doors brings you 147 household doors (those ones present in every project) opening and closing, recorded simultaneously from a close and a distant perspective. One of the main problems with doors is that they tend to sound “too close”. A door will sound different depending on where the microphone is placed. By using two different mics, we tried to achieve that goal and match the camera point of view.
Close perspective is around 50 centimeters far away from the source, whereas the distant one is around 2-3 meters far away, depending on the room size.
Distant perspective is in M/S. Both M/S Decoded and RAW are included in the library, so you can play with it as you please: using only the close one, using both close and distant, using just the distant one, decoding it to mono, wider… The list is endless.
Unless it wasn’t possible due to the nature of the sound, all sounds were recorded in two different intensities: Hard and Soft. Each file contains at least 3 different takes opening and closing, making a total of more than 1400 door sounds.
Some other actions, apart from opening and closing, have been also included, such as knocking on doors, slamming, forcing handles, locking and unlocking doors, door chains and latches.
All files are in 96 kHz/24 bit and meta-tagged, both in Soundminer and BWAV.
Close Perspective: Sennheiser 8050, Sennheiser 416
Distant Perspective: Sennheiser 418, AKG CK93 & 94, Zoom H2n
Recorders: Zoom F8, Sound Devices 633

The Optical Drives sound effects library features recordings of computer optical disc drives (two internal desktop CD/DVD-R and one internal laptop slim CD/DVD-R slot-load).
Two induction coil pickups were used to record the electromagnetic fields emitted by the drives, capturing a very unique set of sounds and textures. These range from sharp percussive bleeps, glitchy static and noise, to electromechanical motor sounds, and drones. You'll find use for many applications, including UI interface design, transitions, sci-fi, robot/servo sounds, technology, and computer sound effects.
Recordings include all functions of the DVD drives, e.g. disc loading, reading, writing/burning, spin up/down, errors, and disc ejecting. Also, each drive was taken apart and manipulated to create additional sounds.
'Laos' is a unique collection of 49 sounds recorded and produced with high-quality equipment. From north to south, this collection includes:

Welcome to the Sounds of Morocco. This essential collection features carefully selected, high-quality sounds recorded on location in the North African region of Morocco.
From the chaos of Marrakech’s bazaars and souks, to the relative calm of the seaside town, Essaouira, to the laid-back surfside village of Taghazout, this collection captures a true snapshot of the sounds you can expect to hear in Morocco. This collection includes crowds, accents, cafes, birds, traditional markets (or souks), the Islamic call to Prayer (Adhan) and so much more. Please see the tracklist below for more detailed track information.
Sounds of Morocco was recorded with the intention to be particularly useful in post-production environments with a range of genuine and rare sounds you can genuinely expect to hear in Morocco.
We really hope you enjoy this extensive, high-quality sound pack.
All tracks recorded by Evan Buist, sound engineer and field recordist (National Geographic, DreamWorks, Paramount Pictures).
The Hard Drives sound effects library features recordings of four hard disk drives (3.5 inch – 5400 & 7200 RPM). All essential hard drive sounds are included (boot up, read/write/copy/delete, power down) that will work great for general computer sounds and ambience.
Each hard drive was opened up, manipulated, and ultimately destroyed to create a collection of raw, abstract and unique sounds. Found materials such as metal, cardboard, plastic, and tools were used to control the hard drive's motor, platter, and head actuator. These sounds work especially well for creating the sounds of mechanical robot movements, electric motors, and futuristic machinery.
Get the authentic sounds and ambiences from the Philippines in this sound effect library. It contains recordings of Lakes, Rice Terraces, Mountains, day and night Village Life, Kids Playing, People Talking, City Life, Traffic, Beaches, Jungle and much more.

In total, it comes with nearly 7 hours (!) of authentic sounds and atmospheric ambiences from the Philippines.
This library of environmental recordings is the culmination of three recording expeditions to the stunningly gorgeous Pacific Northwest. We visited a variety of locations ranging from urban Vancouver, Portland, and Seattle to the wild and untamed Olympic Peninsula. We captured dynamically disparate sounds such as a noisy Seattle shipyard and the quietest location in the continental US – deep within the primordial Hoh Rainforest. There are excellent crowd wallas, and contemplative mountain streams. From beaches to mountain tops to luxury high rises no environment was left un-recorded! This is what the Northwest sounds like!
In all, this library features 69 individual files totaling over three hours of runtime. Total un-zipped file size is over six gigabytes. All sounds have been edited to remove discernable dialog and unwanted noises. What’s left is pure, loop-able ambience suitable for no-fuss editing.
All sounds were captured on a Sound Devices 744T recorder. Microphones used include a Sanken CSS-5 stereo mic and a matched stereo pair of Sennheiser 8040s in ORTF configuration. All recordings are accompanied by a high quality photograph for reference and tagged with Pro Tools searchable metadata.
As a special incentive we will also include a bonus mini-library of ambiences from the Irish countryside that James recorded on a recent trip home! Highlights include some great mountain winds and a rare recording of a starling formation taking flight!

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.
