  • Ambisonics Countryside Winter – Ambisonics Play Track 15 sounds included, 67 mins total From: $25 From: $13

    COUNTRYSIDE WINTER – Ambisonics brings you 15 ambisonic atmospheres recorded during different times of a day in winter: early morning, morning, afternoon, evening and night.

    All these recordings have been done in Sierra Morena, Andalusia (Spain). Being winter, birds tend to be much quiet and insects are almost gone, so most of the ambiences are pretty silent. You will hear mainly birds such as sparrows, doves and woodpeckers. At night dogs and roosters make an appearance.

    Recordings have been done with a Sennheiser Ambeo + Zoom F8. All files are in 96 kHz/24 bit and meta-tagged.

    About this library:

    This Ambisonics sound effects library contains the original recordings in A-Format (no processing whatsoever) and in B-format (AmbiX). By using Harpex, 5.1 (LRCLfeLsRs) and stereo (ORTF) mixdowns have been also added. Note that the Lfe channel is mute. It hasn’t been removed to follow the SMPTE  path order.

    The Ambisonics version contains all the formats. Stereo version only includes the stereo files.

    Soundcloud demo plays the stereo version.

  • Environments Deciduous Forests Play Track 192 sounds included, 360+ mins total $199

    PURE, FRESH, SEASONAL FOREST AMBIENCES
    New and fascinating: DECIDUOUS FORESTS is our eighth SFX library from our remarkable series of high quality nature recordings by Emmy-winner and nature recording genius Gordon Hempton. He has searched the globe for more than three decades to record nature at its most pristine.

    WHAT’S INSIDE

    INCLUDED SOUNDS – KEYWORDS

    DECIDUOUS FOREST, NATURE SOUNDS, TREES, LEAVES, BIRDS, BIRDSONGS, CHORUS, SPRING, WINTER, INSECTS, CRICKETS, SONGBIRD, FLOCK, PASSING, CROWS, OWLS, WOODPECKER, HOOT, SQUAWKS, DAWN, AMERICAN TOAD, LIGHT, MORNING, WIND, ROAR, FIELD, SPARROW, WINGS, CHAT

    VARYING AMBIENCES WITH EVERY SEASON

    DECIDUOUS FORESTS are intimate and harmonious spaces. Their sound character is much quieter than that of tropical forests – but nonetheless spectacular. Their loudness varies and changes with the seasons, as the angle of the arriving solar energy gradually impacts their character. Winter, spring, summer or fall – you’ll find what you need to create the whole acoustic range of different weather conditions and day times in this collection, e.g. dawn onsets with early birds, day birdsongs and insects, wind drips and frogs, passing flocks, rainy storm aftermath…

    LIVELY ABUNDANCE

    DECIDUOUS FORESTS is especially rich with songbird and insect ambiences. The sheer selection of birds included in these all-natural hardwood ambient recordings ranges from American Robin, Barred Owl and Darkeyed Junco to Ruffed Grouse, Tufted Titmouse, Whippoorwill and so many more. Whether talkative, rhythmic, active or relaxed, their bird songs shape the unique characteristic of these natural cathedrals as the echo or afterlife of the original sound has a pronounced forest acoustic.

    This Library is also part of The Complete Quiet Planet Bundle.

    CRISP, FREE-FIELD SOUNDSCAPES

    An amazing new nature SFX library is waiting for you: DESERTS – WEATHER & WILDLIFE from our remarkable series of high quality nature recordings by Emmy-winner and nature recording genius Gordon Hempton.

    WHAT’S INSIDE

    INCLUDED SOUNDS – KEYWORDS

    DESERTS, NATURE SOUNDS, TEMPERATE, BIRDS, INSECTS, PALM, SPRINGS, LEAVES, BIRDSONGS, WIND, WISPS, CRICKETS, REPTILES, RATTLESNAKE, RAVENS, WINGS, FLATTERING, GRASS, LIZARDS, GRASSHOPPER, HUMMINGBIRD

    A CLEAN STAGE TO SHAPE YOUR EXPERIENCE

    DESERTS are simple, spacious and lack echoes. Quiet prevails. Even so, you’ll want to challenge your audience, jolt them from their comfortable seats and immerse them in this inhospitable habitat. Do not be afraid to use harsh insects, driving winds, or even startle your listeners with a sudden, loud, unexplained alarm call of a strange bird nearby. Then settle them with expansive concerts, such as a reassuring gecko chorus composed of thousands of point-source clicks in step with the setting sun. All this is included in DESERTS – WEATHER & WILDLIFE which gives sound designers the easiest access to super-authentic soundscapes.

    COVERING EVERY ANGLE

    We offer you super-clean sounds from different deserts (temperate vs tropical), different times of day (morning, day, dawn) and different weather conditions. In addition you get very rare and clean sounds of desert wildlife.

    This Library is also part of The Complete Quiet Planet Bundle.

  • City Life Diffuse City Play Track 116+ sounds included, 752 mins total $75

    Diffuse City is the unique urban ambience sound effects library you didn’t know you were missing. It captures the urban environment in its many forms – all based around the idea of diffuse ambience.

    The Diffuse City library is purpose-built for the times an environment needs to be felt, but not be distracting.

    Every track in Diffuse City was recorded with some sort of real life “filter” in mind; be it distance, elevation, time of day, physical material – Anything to provide the feeling of city life with out the specificity of many urban ambience libraries. No distracting close car pass-bys or people talking; only great natural ambience beds.

    Diffuse City was recorded in big cities, suburbs, small towns, and rural settings over a span of two years. It was largely recorded over very late nights, when very few people we’re around. Occasionally, however, a car would pass by… a gun would go off… While these were edited out of the recordings, they are included as “extras” in the library. Perfect for adding some flavor to a moment that’s authentic to the environment it was recorded in.

    Metadata – and markers:

    In addition to thorough metadata, each ambience in Diffuse City is embedded with markers highlighting unique moments that aren’t easily visible in a waveform. Software like Soundminer v4.5 and Reaper can display these markers, making it easy to identify distinct sonic moments in an otherwise nondescript waveform.

    reaper-markers-example

    Markers in Reaper

    There are 10 areas of focus in Diffuse City:

    Elevated City • Distant Highways • Underground City • Distant City • Under Bridges • City Rumble • Empty Parking Lots • Alleys • Industrial • Window Contacts

  • The west is still wild.  A collection of clean and loopable natural ambient atmosphere elements – each 3 minutes long. This collection represents my best content and works great in multitrack layers.

    The core of this collection are natural sounds captured in the wilds of Oregon, USA – Western North America. The wildlife in the forests, streams, lakes, coast, and deserts of Oregon are a good substitute for most US and Canadian states west of the Rocky Mountains, including Washington, California, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, British Colombia, Alberta, Alaska, and Wyoming.

    These recordings are from a pristine environment that avoid any human caused sounds.

  • City Life Distant City Ambiences (3 channel) Play Track 88 sounds included, 150 mins total $39

    Distant City Ambiences introduces the sounds of the ever-present noisefloor that is generated by the life in a modern city.

    Several spots around the hills along Dresden/Germany have been visited in order to record these noisefloors from a distance.

    All recordings are made with a 3-channel setup of Sennheiser MKH8020 / 8040 microphones that are able to capture the finest nuances which are often hidden by an aggressive compound of ever roaring engines, passing airplanes, trains and other acoustic emissions.

    The library features 16 different locations that were visited several times between October and December 2015. Each place was recorded at different day and night times so that an entire 24h cycle of city ambiences is covered.
