Atmospheric drones and ambiences – light and dark, beautiful and eerie, lively and serene
SILENTSCAPES is a collection of 36 high quality recorded and fully mastered romtoones, ambiences and background sounds.
The sound library contains both indoor and outdoor sounds and the sound editing was done to obtain constant and quiet ambiences.
All sounds can be used as the first and neutral sounding layer of your projects, to give support and consistency to dialogue and sfx tracks. Otherwise they can be used as sound sweeteners for existing background ambiences or sound sources for new sound shaping.
Singing Bowl features a variety of sounds captured directly from a small Tibetan singing bowl.
The library was meticulously recorded in stereo using a mixture of contact microphones and a Sony PCM D100 recorder. Strikes in a variety of styles, from wood, rubber, fingering, plastic, and metal were recorded, as well as rotation resonances, drops and scrapes. In addition to allowing the bowl to fully ring out, the recordings also include dampened hits.
Also included are a unique set of designed sounds. Utilising a variety of sound processing techniques, the results include user interface effects, abstract drones and moving tones. This sound set was also produced dry so that you can apply your own reverb to taste if required.
Rich tonal singing bowls played, sustained, and hit. Two octaves of an A Bowl and a D Bowl. Recorded and edited at 96kHz.
SMOOTH is a collection of 140 24-bit/48khz wave sound effects.
I’ts delicate, soft, deep, eerie, cinematic. Its sounds are crafted for slow motion shots, abstract film sequences, motion design shots and mysterious, not aggressive, evocative and ethereal projects.
All sounds are organized into 8 categories:
They are total wet and 100% reverbered, designed with a “light touch”, definitely the opposite of big distorted and punchy sounds.
Sonic Warfare by Badlands Sound features 40 audio files organized in four different categories, including Deep Distortion, Glitch, Noise, and Scream – 10 audio files for each category. This is the best pack if you need all of the above noises!
I believe these sounds will greatly benefit sound editors and sound designers allowing them to skip through the process of either creating dark drones or painful high-pitch glitches. These sounds would also work perfectly in different styles of music including noise and dark industrial. All files are 96k / 24 bit, lasting one minute each.
SONIKSCAPE has been produced to create intense underscore, dark atmospheres and abstract textures.
This collection comes packed with cinematic soundscapes, vocal atmospheres, textures out of processed flutes, ghost breaths and vocal effects, dark low oscillations and subsonic frequencies, bowed cymbals, psychological screech and more.
Dedicated to the movie trailer, suspenseful film and television soundtrack, dark ambient music, audio-visual installation and sound artist.
Sonikscape is a collaboration between SampleTraxx and German sound designer Sebastian Emling who already collaborated on Cinematic Zither and Old Broken Piano.

Spring Box is 13 minutes/453mb of shrieking, droning, scraping metallic sounds – made by bowing a steel spring bolted to an empty steel enclosure. 81 separate files – recorded in 24bit/96kHz using Primo EM172 and JrF contact microphones.
Here's a collection of eerie sounds for your next horror/sci-fi/ambient project. Everything from low rumbling and rattling, to high pitched, harmonics-laden screams; long, drawn-out sounds and short dings and twangs. Of course they sound really good when pitched down, too (the last 3 sounds in the preview are shifted down to quarter speed)!
The Spring Box is an old 19 inch rack enclosure, which I gutted and fitted with two springs from a genuine Luxo lamp (so you know it's good). I have been having fun bowing and scraping this with a cello bow, as well as striking it with various other objects. Some sounds are recorded acoustically, while others were done with contact mics.
Static Space is a collection of 155 space or Sci-Fi sound effects, focused on continuous, seamless loops. Instead of fly-by's and accelerations, you get the sounds of space ships going at cruise speeds or idling. If you need motion, just add panning, fades and doppler as you like.
Here are plenty of loops for designing alien environments, including engine rooms, general room tones, strange transmissions and more. Additionally, I have made sure to add plenty of variety; both in terms of moods, frequency content and tonality. Some of these are unmistakably space sound effects, while others are more ambiguous, and could be used for other high tech environments as well.
You will find both low- and high end sweeteners, so when ever you see the words “rumble” or “low end” in a file name; watch that master fader! Furthermore, I went for a strong, almost musical tone, in some sounds, while others are much more noise-based and abrasive.
Whether you seek eerie ambiences, mysterious chatter, or a bassy sweetener, Strange Moods has you covered. In this collection, you’ll find over an hour of perfectly-loopable, atmospheric audio. Inspired by such games as Limbo, No Man’s Sky, and Badlands, all 69 files are high-quality 96kHz/24bit WAV files and drag and drop ready.
Supernatural Ghosts provides the sounds of spirits in multiple variations, allowing you to construct entire horror scenes and suggest ghostly presence.

Synthesized Moods is a collection of 18 soundscapes, drones and textures produced by sound designer Giorgio Riolo using Native Instrument’s Massive plug-in.
All moods are “Synthesized”, imaginary and abstract.
They’ll add a bizarre layer to your ambiences sound effects and sometimes they’ll give a musical taste with a sci-fi, dark and sinister accent to your project .
Synthesized Moods is available in two versions:
Synthetic Drones is the beginning of a new, affordable series aimed at delivering high quality cinematic soundscapes, with variety and flexibility in mind to induce dread and discomfort onto your audiovisual ventures.
Synthetic Drones was achieved by running a multitude of analog synthesizers through complex effects chains, resulting in resonant, cold, mechanical ambiences where its source remains abstract and mysterious.
Each audio file contains several variations of the same synthesizer and effects chain, ranging from simple resonant notes, abstract rhythmic clanging and organic soundscapes, rounded up with a futuristic approach, perfect for gloomy science-fiction projects. The takes are long and evolving, giving you creative freedom to use them however deemed necessary.
Created using only a 1975 Fender Telecaster through a 1975 Fender Princeton Reverb (and some effect wizardry), Telepathy is SkewSound’s first drone/mood library.

It’s up to you with SkewSound’s Telepathy library.

Tension gets you 430+ sounds and 7.5GB of 24bit/96khz files, all meticulously embedded with Soundminer & Basehead metadata.
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.
