City and urban sound effects & recordings – including crowds, walla, traffic and other city activity

  • Langa – Township Ambiences is a collection of everyday sounds recorded within a vibrant township community in the heart of Cape Town. The townships are always a busy place with a lot of different soundscapes to offer – from the chaotic market street in the town centre to the quieter houses/shacks on the outskirts. This collection has both interior and exterior ambiences and wallas to set the scene for any project set in a lively city environment. This pack consists of 25 Ambiences.

  • City Life Leaked Noise Play Track 36 sounds included, 84 mins total $90

    What is LEAKED NOISE? Well, in the case of this sound pack, it is the sound that is somewhat removed from the listener. It might be the people upstairs having a blazing argument (and later on when they have made up, getting amorous), the garage band next door rehearsing their songs, the kid in the basement practicing drums or the one down the school hall practising flute. In this pack, you will find lots of LEAKED NOISE that might be just right for your project, be it TV, film, radio, videogame or theatre.

  • Moscow, Russia in winter and spring time


    Streets, covered with melting snow; people, hurrying with their business; street, cleaning from ice; whistling wet traffic; quiet and loud residential neighborhoods; children playing in the snow; windy parks; cold nights and, then, saving spring; water, dropping from the roofs; singing birds and babbling brooks.

    How to convey these things without violating their nature?

    One of the ways is a stealth binaural recording using miniature microphones DPA 4060. It gave the sense of naturalness and created a presence effect, that you wouldn’t find in any other library about Russia.

    KEY POINTS:

    • An excellent addition to your library for film, TV and multimedia – Moscow in winter and spring time
    • Stealth recording with DPA4060 mics gives the absolute naturalness and allows you to be where you can not operate with a traditional set of microphones
    • Sorted by seasons and location-type categories.
    • All files have extensive metadata included

  • Second episode of our journey to Moscow, Russia, but this time – during summer and autumn


    We recorded the most interesting sonic atmospheres, such as wet and dry traffic, streets, singing birds, wind in the endless parks, fountains, construction work, yelling children, rain and thunder, suburban villages, crowds and many more.

    To capture this sound palette I made another stealth recording kit, but now, using LDC (large diaphragm condenser) microphones. This has improved the sound quality and made the recordings even more detailed, to continue creating the largest sound library series about Russia.

    KEY POINTS:

    • An excellent addition to your library for film, TV and multimedia – Moscow in summer and fall time
    • Stealth recording with LDC mics gives the absolute naturalness and allows you to be where you can not operate with a traditional set of microphones with large windshields
    • Sorted by seasons, time of day, weather and location-type categories.
    • Recorded with Audio-Technica BP4025 XY and Sennheiser MKH 30/40 MS microphones
