  • In this Kit all “Dark SciFi Drones” were carefully split in logical frequency Layers. So you have better control and you can do your own mix of these elements.
    Also you can combine and mix the different layers across the ambiences by drag&drop to create nearly endless variations. Or easily do creative up-mixes to surround.
    The duration of each Drone is 1:00 minute with very versatile variations in each file.
    Use the layers in “Playlists” (Pro Tools) or “Track Versions” (Nuendo) for best flexibility and easy access.

    Each layer of the same Drone is named after the Drone plus a letter for the layer. Starting at “A” (low frequency)…
    Each Drone is separated in 2-5 layers.

  • 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.

  • Environments 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

  • 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.

  • Discover the quaint charm of a sleepy Northern English town, on a cold and windy night, the sound of windchimes shimmering through the air.

    The Dormant Village Library was recorded in a small village in North Yorkshire, England, on the night before Christmas. It was very cold and windy, and there were almost no people around, as everyone was sipping hot cocoa in their homes.

    The library was recorded in a few different locations, some close to the little traffic that was still present, and some further away. The recordings were then polished and edited down to just about 12 minutes, preserving the essence of the location.

    In addition to the descriptive SoundMiner metadata embedded in the files, I have also added markers in iZotope RX, which can be read in some versions of SoundMiner, Reaper, etc.

    The markers indicate small sonic events, such as distant, melodic windchimes, or when the wind picks up, allowing you to understand what happens throughout the recording without having to listen to the whole thing.

    If you have any questions about this library, feel free to quickly send me an e-mail. I tend to reply within minutes.
