  • Ice Elements: Ice Play Track 1500 sounds included, 86 mins total $60

    Elements: Ice is a collection of ice sounds recorded and edited over the 2015/2016 winter by George Vlad. The library is made up of more than 1500 individual ice sounds including cracks, creaks, hits, impacts, smashes, drags, stomps, splashes and water under ice ambience. The sounds have been recorded over more than 4 months in Romania and Scotland at temperatures ranging between -25C/-13F and 5C/41F.

    The library’s most obvious use is as Foley elements since it covers a wide variety of ice thicknesses and performances. As is the case with other libraries in the Elements series, these sounds can also be used for other purposes such as gore sweeteners, glass or wood cracks, bone breaks etc. Additionally, all files are recorded and mastered at 24/96 quality which makes them excellent sound design elements ripe for serious processing.

    Elements: Ice at a glance:

    • 89 .wav files ranging from 3 seconds to 8 minutes long; more than 1500 sounds in total
    • recorded and presented as 24 bit/96 kHz mono files

  • This is a selection of more than 30 different elevators, displaying a broad variety in sound. The whole library was recorded in 192 kHz (with Earthworks QTC50) as elevators often have high pitched metal sounds, squeaks and electrical hum up there, which makes great material for extreme pitch shifting. In addition to the omnis, which get you a very accurate impression of the space, a harsher, more direct pair of microphones were used in m/s on a lot of recordings. You could even build a surround version from these mics together.

    The library focuses on the most important sounds for games and movies, elevators going up & down as well as doors sliding open and closing. Besides, I recorded atmos, buttons and footsteps wherever possible. I also added some studio foley takes to add a selection of rattles, squeaks, metal impacts, doors etc. to create the exact elevator sound that suits your needs.

    The elevators range from a 1929 wooden paternoster, metallic freight elevators/goods lifts to a 90s futuristic Kone disc drive and 2015s all-glass cabins. Carrying a maximum of 2 people to 33 people. Recorded in universities, offices, hotels, warehouses, industry, town halls, private households, malls and many more.

    The meta-data allows you to sort by year, kg, people, brand, action and of course character.

    You like to hear it rattle, squeak, groan, grind, slide, clatter and hiss (yeah, lots of fan noise)? This is one for you.

  • City Life Environmental Protest Play Track 59 sounds included, 80 minutes mins total From: $75

    150,000 people protesting the importance of climate change.

    This library includes general walla, crowd reactions, applause, angry reactions & chants.

  • Welcome to the Essential Stadium Crowd sound effects library: All the crowds, back room ambience and practice tracks were recorded at the Phoenix Cardinals Stadium, pre/during and post game. I had the opportunity to have a press pass and free reign in the stadium.

    Some of the recordings were recorded way up high in the upper bleachers, and some behind the end zones, as well as other interesting places. There are significant differences in the locations and the ‘thickness’ of the crowds. With this library, you should be able to fill out any sort of large sports arena ambience, as I’ve edited out most of the PA Announcer to give more of a general stadium feel that could be anywhere, and any major arena sporting event. The PA that is left in can easily be edited out.

    All the sounds were mastered in Pro Tools, with very transparent processing going on. My signal chain consisted of a C4 Compressor, DMG Equality EQ, and a L1 Limiter. All reverb is natural.

  • In this sound pack I’ve included an in-depth selection of active ambiences. This library is focused more on the natural ambience of both busy main streets and calmer side streets.

    Most sounds were captured below 110 St. and prominently in the Lower East and West Village. There are a multitude of police and firetruck sirens at varying distances as well as some not so common areas like the Intrepid Pier and the Hudson River Heliport ambience.

    I’ve also included some extensive subway rides. All boring bits were edited out for a strong final product. There are multiple train rides with various levels of walla and PA announcements.

    One thing that is very common in NYC during the summer months are the rain and thunderstorms. I’ve included a number of wet traffic, distant thunderstorms and heavy rains.

    All in all this is a good representation of New York's streets and subway systems.

  • This library was compiled over the course of 5 years with 3 different recorders (Sony D50, Zoom H6 and Roland R07). The Roland was used in stealthy situations because of its size.

    This collection of tracks depict the sound of traffic, both near and far, with the (seemingly) constant hum of the Los Angeles helicopter. There are plenty of those in these recordings, as well as a good variety of locations and situations. I believe this library represents the actual sound of Los Angeles in a general sense.

    All tracks have been mastered in Pro Tools, with light compression to even out the bumps, and use EQ here and there to hide the rumble and calm the hiss. All bumps and unwanted noise has been edited out for the best result.

    I hope you appreciate this collection, as I’ve used all the tracks myself. In most cases, these sounds have been bolstered and mastered for a fuller, more interesting sound.

    All tracks have full metadata implemented for a clear and concise explanation of each track.

  • Recorded throughout 4 parts of Italy (Rome, Naples, Positano, Tivoli Gardens), the 3 hours and 45min of material gives you a large variety of sound to choose from.

    Every city/town has signature sound of its own. The constant hum or “Din” of a city varies. Rome is known for its many scooters, motorbikes, and church-bells.
    This library is made up of various location Dins, and small side-street ambience.

    Of the 60 tracks, a majority are over 4 mins. and some are 5 min in length. There are sections that rival others, but overall there is a large selection to pick and choose from.
    Of course I've edited out all the rough areas, and material of no consequence (the boring bits) to tighten and heighten the clips, and make them sound interesting.

    The processing used is minimal. DMG EQ, C4 Compressor, and a little noise reduction in some cases. Mostly very transparent processing. There may be a moment or two where there is a wind bluster, but because of the nature of the track, I chose to minimize instead of chop out.
