  • Sigil is a unique library of dark, gritty, raw, and eerie textures and tones made from one-of-a-kind handmade electro-acoustic instruments and found objects created by sound designer and musician Nathan Moody.

    Sigil provides an edgy set of layers that are rich with organic complexity: Skittery bows on handmade string instruments; “prepared” string tones and textures, bowed and rubbed springs under tension; salvaged rusty metal tubes; perforated steel gongs; aluminum water bottle bells; and deep, resonant handmade percussion instruments. Textures include chugs, shrieks, groans, drones, bounces, peals, and rattles. The sounds range from blissfully musical to horrifyingly atonal, and are equally at home lending an uneasy tone to either avant garde musical works or multi-layered sound effects, especially in thriller or horror genres.

    The organic nature of the Sigil library means that its sounds hold up well to extreme processing like pitch shifting and granular resynthesis. The handmade nature of the instruments used means that there’s no other library quite like it.

    The recordings were made with a variety of pickups, contact microphones, and traditional microphones, through various high-end “character” mic preamps selected uniquely per microphone and per instrument. Full details are in the library’s documentation.

    This collection was recorded at 24 bits, 96 kHz and includes over three hours of recordings with more than 600 individual sounds, all fully tagged with metadata. Multiple articulations and voicing are ganged into single files for convenience and organization.

  • Signal Return is a performable Kontakt instrument and soundset designed to create a wide variety of interesting and textured sounds.

No software based speaker emulators or distortions were used in the creation of these sounds. Comes with 250 .wav files – more than 2 hours of recordings + 22 Kontakt instruments (these require the full version of NI Kontakt 5.0 or higher).

    Note: Can be used without Kontakt too!
    All Kontakt instrument libraries include fully unlocked and accessible metadata tagged .wav files. You don't need any version of Kontakt to use these files as a standalone sample library.

  • Performed on a experimental, custom-built rig with intense manipulation of objects and tools on a bass guitar string, the Sonomar Collection: Bass Machine sound library features 720 abstract sound design elements to serve as your go-to solution for mysterious designs. Add an otherworldly layer of depth and emotion to your projects with swirling metallic feedback, tensions, eerie engine drones, and gritty metallic vibrations.

    At over 15GB, Bass Machine delivers 70 raw sound files and 650 designed sound effects. Recorded with contact mics and guitar pickups at 192kHz, the raw sounds provide uniquely organic building blocks for processing and manipulation. The acoustic isolation and high resolution of each file makes these sounds incredibly flexible for editing and ripe for imaginative sound design. The collection’s designed sounds have been expertly sculpted, pitched, and processed at 96kHz using parts of the raw files. Use these as inspiration for your own design potential, or drop straight into your projects to instantly add expressive tension, harmonic activity, and compelling dimension.

    As the first exclusive Sonomar Collection release from Pro Sound Effects, Bass Machine demonstrates the sonic curiosity of sound designer and recordist Martin Pinsonnault (Big Little Lies, Dallas Buyers Club) and the Sonomar team. Together they created the contraption, recorded and performed sounds over many hours of experimentation with the instrument, and then meticulously trimmed, designed, and organized the results for a truly generous and limitless sound library.

    Each sound file is embedded with rich metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with fast, pinpoint search. Sustain creativity with characteristic descriptions of each recording encompassing both literal sonic qualities as well as the images they invoke. Advanced metadata fields include translated French descriptions and additional info to ensure compatibility across any database search platform such as Soundminer, BaseHead, Netmix, Workspace (Pro Tools), Find Tool (Media Composer), Media Bay (Nuendo), Reaper, Adobe Premiere, and beyond.

  • Skillfully performed using glasses as instruments, Sonomar Collection: Crystal Sing features 46 clean, high quality recordings of ringing vibrations perfectly suited for your harmonic tonal needs. This unique collection contains sonorous ringing tones at various pitches as well as sharp squeaks and rubs. Use the raw recordings to add hypnotic resonant layers to your projects, or alter them to experience the depth of Crystal Sing’s harmonic range.

    To capture these sounds, sound designer and recordist Martin Pinsonnault (Big Little Lies, Dallas Buyers Club) and the Sonomar team used six different types of glasses including Ricard, cognac and champagne flute glasses. The tonal vibrations created by rubbing a wet finger along the rim of the glass were recorded in 192kHz with MKH-8040 microphones in ORTF setup. Each glass produced its own pitch and tone dependent on its size, shape, and the amount of water added. The rich high frequency response and minimal noise make these clean harmonic tones ideal for pitching and processing.

    Each sound file is embedded with comprehensive metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with fast, pinpoint search. Enable creativity with detailed descriptions of each recording and their specific sonic qualities. Advanced metadata fields include translated French descriptions and additional info to ensure compatibility across any database search platform such as Soundminer, BaseHead, Netmix, Workspace (Pro Tools), Find Tool (Media Composer), Media Bay (Nuendo), Reaper, Adobe Premiere, and beyond.

  • The Sonomar Collection: Pianos sound effects library began with a curious question: What new and unconventional sounds can be made with a piano for use in sound design?

Created by sound designer and recordist Martin Pinsonnault (Big Little Lies, Dallas Buyers Club) and the Sonomar team, the Pianos library blurs the line between music and sound design – captured at 192kHz using contact mics and an MKH-8040 for endless possibilities in pitching and processing.
