    Get the sound of honey bees – inside and outside their hive – with this 96kHz and 24bit Beehive sound library.

    All files were recorded outside the town, far away from the roads to capture the clean sound of the hardworking bees.

    I had a chance to record those insects before the feeding time, so they were hungry and really active.

    My main goal was to capture different sounds, not only the ambiences but also some close ones, like the sound of the bees landing on their landing zone or just the interior sound of the hive.

    14 stereo files were recorded with Sound Devices 702, Sony PCM-M10 recorder, two DPA 4061 microphones hidden inside a hive and two Sennheiser MKH 8040 to capture the ambience in front of the hive.

    Every stereo AB interior recording can be split to mono to isolate the single buzzes, and the library features a total of 44 minutes of bee sound recordings.

  • Nature & Countryside Ambiences Cicadas Play Track 140+ sounds included, 300 mins total $60

    Cicadas is a collection of summer ambiences recorded in Southern Spain over the course of 2018 summer. You will get massive chorus in different densities and areas, individual chirps, and a designed section.

    The temperatures during this time of the year are so high, ranging from 30ºC to 45ºC (86ºF to 113ºF), that cicadas are always present in daytime. The higher the temperatures, the more cicadas chirp. Having this in mind, some recordings from early June have less cicadas than the ones recorded in July and August. In addition to this, there are recordings both in the morning, where the cicadas are not so many but are already present, and in the evening, chirping all of them as a chorus after a whole day under the sun. The library contains:

    • Cicadas in the countryside, recorded in different months and times of the day. Some recordings only contains cicadas and some others also include birds, dogs barking, flies buzzing and rooster calls (26 audio files).
    • Close ups of single cicadas, to build your own atmosphere or design insects, creatures and other specimens (17 audio files).
    • Cicadas in urban environments, such as parks (16 audio files) and residential areas (8 files).

  • Red Libraries teamed up with the sound designers Frederic Devanlay and Thibault Csukonyi to create the new “Mutant Insects” collection

    The library gathers a wide range of oversized wings for equally-oversized designed flying insects, along with an extremely rich toolbox. It allows you to quickly and easily create every flying creatures and mutants you have in mind, but also sweeten or emphasize details with natural layers for real-life documentaries, games or feature films.

    These insects are more impressive than in real life by their size and the noise made when flying.
    So we called them “MUTANT Insects”.
    And why not also use it for bird wings…

    8 different species are featured : Fly, Hornet, Grasshopper, Beetle, Moth, Gnat, Rhino Beetle, Dragonfly.

    The movements offered are Idles (loop), Passes by, Swirling Evolutions (loop), Swarms (loop), Abrupt Movements (take flights, attacks, spasms…)

    These evolutions have been created with the help of the Traveler plugin by Tonsturm, and the Sound Particles software by Sound Particles.

    Presets for Sound Particles and Traveler are included in the pack. Many thanks to Tilman Hahn and Nuno Fonseca.

    The toolbox will allow to imagine your own mutants or to just simply create real insects, With natural layers such as hummings or different appearances to made wing strokes.

    CAPTURED ALL OVER THE WORLD
    With this library you will get beautiful sounds we recorded in Europe and the jungles of Southeast Asia. Crickets, cicadas and grasshoppers are commonly found in open fields, on trees or in primeval forests with warm temperatures. Use these sound effects to create exotic soundscapes, dry deserts or the acoustic background of a mild summer evening.

    CLEAN RECORDINGS
    All sound effects have an extremely low noise floor and can easily be used as a construction kit for layering unique sound atmospheres. Perspectives from close to far will help you to design your own sonic environments.

    FROM SINGLE INSECTS TO SWARMS
    Singing insect sounds are hard to describe; it is a lot easier to listen to the great possible varieties. Our language is poor to define the sounds of crickets or cicadas: buzz, click, rasp, whirr, rattle, trill, chirp. Usually we only use one descriptive verb, mostly onomatopoetic, but these insects produce a great number of different noises.

  • Recorded by renowned innovators of film sound design Ann Kroeber and Alan Splet, the Beautiful Bugs library features an expressive collection of natural and designed insect sound effects including rhythmic cicada swells, dense locust drones, mosquito cries, isolated fly buzzes and more.

    The impressive spectrum of emotion conjured by these artful insect recordings ranges from ominous, frightening, irritating, and disgusting all the way to lonely, tranquil, and soothing. Inject mystery and surrealism in your scenes or add unique character and texture to your creature design with impressionistic buzzy swarms, chirpy choruses, and heavy rhythmic pulsing.

    Following the acclaimed sound libraries Cinematic Winds, Industrial Sounds with Soul, and Beautiful Bugs is the fourth exclusive release by Pro Sound Effects curated from Sound Mountain: Kroeber and Splet’s venerable private recording collection created over decades of film sound work. Kroeber has since worked on or supplied sounds for film, television, and games – including 6 movies that won an Academy Award® in sound, and 7 additional nominations.

    The Beautiful Bugs library brings you 88 insect sound effects that were recorded and designed while working on major feature films including David Lynch’s Blue Velvet and Peter Weir’s The Mosquito Coast. These masterful recordings were captured on excursions in the jungle of Belize, the Alaskan wilderness, muggy summertime North Carolina, and an insect lab in Berkeley, California.

    Rich, descriptive embedded metadata helps you find the exact sound effect you need with descriptions that detail the emotional power of the recordings beyond the practical interpretations.

The heavy summer rains spawned a lively cricket chorus unlike anything I had heard before. Hear 10,000 cricket chirps weave into lush blankets of sound that gently float through mountain valleys. Hear the slowly sagging pitch of lush choruses as nighttime temperatures fall. Hear the joyous chirps of countless crickets that will make you want to take out your tent immediately.

  • This library focuses on isolated recordings of single insects, mainly from Northern Europe. While all insects have been recorded in the wild in Northern Europe, most also appear in all of Europe, Asia, North Africa and some have been introduced to America and Australia too.

    For this library I recorded various species of wild bees, wasps, bugs, cicades, grasshoppers, flys, dragonflies, butterflies, ants, sandfleas and underwater bugs. A detailed list of all species is at the end.

    You will find flybys, wing buzzes, hums, rattles, little feet, stridulations, jumps and even bites.

    Over the course of years I improved my recording of these little animals by approaching them with a set of different micing techniques, always looking for the best spots to record these small creatures, making sure not to disturb them.

    Many recordings were performed with microphones and recorders that go up to 192kHz to capture the ultra frequencies emitted by some individuals. Some grasshoppers you won’t even hear unless you pitch them down or play them slower.

    While I find their crispy, clear and often bassy sounds lovely, some of the noises of the animals can be decribed as annoying, scary, sharp or intensive.

    But besides for the original recorded species, these noises can be used to create swarms or all kind of insects or little creatures, like elves, aliens and fairies.

    In addition to the close up recordings, I added a few swarms, real and designed, a couple of ambiences and a few designed insect sounds.

    Some of the 60+ species (for details check file list):

    Apex Furrowed Bee, Big Fly, Black Tailed Skimmer, Blow Fly, Blue Winged Grasshopper, Bow Winged Grasshopper, Buff Tailed Bumblebee,  Butterflies, Purple Emperor, Honey Bee, Mosquito, Wild Bees, Carder Bee, Chelostoma Rapunzuli, Chrysogaster Solstitialis, Cloromia Formosa, Common Field Cricket, Common Green Bottle Fly, Common Wasp, Conocephalus Fuscus, Dragonfly, Drone Fly, Early Bumblebee, Eristalis Pertinax,  Eupeodes Luniger, European Orchard Bee, European Wasp, European Wool Carder Bee, False Stable Fly, Field Grasshopper, Flesh Fly, Fly of the Dead, Flying Ant, Gnat, Great Green Bush Cricket, Green Blowfly, Green Rose Chafer, Grey Backed Mining Bee, Gypsy Cuckoo Bee, Hairy Footed Flower Bee, Helophilus Trivittatus, Hornet Hoverfly, House Fly, Italian Tree Cricket, Jigger Flea, Large Bee Fly, March Crane Fly, Meadow Grasshopper,  Myathropa Florea, Painted Lady, Pale-saddled Leucozona, Red Tailed Bumblebee, Red Wood Ant, Sand Bee, Sand Wasp, Sawfly Macrophia Montana, Sceliphron Curvatum, Tritomegas Bicolor, Underwater Insects, White Tailed Bumblebee, Wood Cricket,…
