  • Sports Gym Weights Play Track 140 sounds included $18 incl. vat

    This Gym Weights library focuses on clinking weights in different shapes and sizes, mostly barbell and hand weights – recorded in an empty gym. As a bonus it contains hits on a punching bag, an ambience track from a large gym (with the sound of people & exercise activity), and some workout machine sounds.

    The library is recorded with film sound in mind, so the sounds are not compressed to death. These are also great ingredients for metal impact sound design.

  • Water & Oceans Harbours Of Norway Play Track 25+ sounds included, 167 mins total $48 incl. vat

    Harbours Of Norway sound library features 25 files with ambients recorded in Myre, Sto and Nyksund, very small towns with direct access to the sea. Most of the sound effects were recorded at night, but since it’s a polar day time of the year, it was very pleasurable to walk and look for convenient places to set up my gear. Everything was recorded with an ORTF setup built from two Sennheisers MKH 8040.

    Inside this library, you’ll find a lot of seagulls, waves crushing on the rocks and plants, windy ambients from the cliff, industrial sound from port in Myre with ship unloading the cargo, walla with steam engine boats and additional sounds from the boat engine market, and air cooling aggregates from food containers.

    Every file was recorded in 96kHz, edited (I removed any unintentional bumps, pops and unwanted sounds). I limited EQing to removing harsh frequencies, or enhancing a little bit the good sounding ones. At the end of the chain there is a small compression, for louder sounds.

  • Drones & Moods Harmonic Series Drones Play Track 48+ sounds included, 48 mins total $34.80 incl. vat

    • Harmonic Series Drones is an extension of several of my music compositions. Over the past few years, I've been very interested in data sonification, writing several pieces that turn real-time weather data into music. This library was created using a drone generator that turns weather data into sound. I built this drone generator for my piece Sitka for piano and seasonal electronics.

    • Instead of pulling weather data from Sitka, Alaska, as I did in the piece, I used 2016 daily temperature data from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a fragile place wrapped up in current political drama and now open to drilling. This library is a sonification of 2016 temperature data in ANWR. The highest global temperature on record was recorded in 2016 (2016 Global Climate Report). It is even worse in the Arctic where temperatures are warming at twice the rate of lower latitudes (2016 Arctic Report Card). With this library, you'll be able to hear the warming, and I hope this library helps to draw attention to the rapidly changing environment of the Arctic.

    • Each of the forty-eight drones corresponds to the average temperature of a day in 2016, with twelve drones from each of the four seasons. The drones are built from pure tones made from tightly filtered pink noise. These pure tones are then stacked in harmonic series relationships. For instance, a winter drone might consist of the fundamental and four lowest partials. A summer drone could have the fundamental and partials seven, fourteen, and thirty-two.

    • The drones stand on their own without the story. If you never knew they started with weather data, you would still find a variety of pure, rich, microtonal drones with enough variety to fit the mood of any project.

    2% FOR THE ENVIRONMENT:
    • Two percent of the price of this library is donated to an environmental cause. I view it as an “artist royalty” for the planet!

    KEY FEATURES:
    • All files are sample seamless loops. So, there are no fade-ins and outs and the files are ready for looping in any DAW.
    • Consonant and dissonant drones
    • Simple and complex drones
    • Each of the 48 drones is between 1 and 1.5 minutes in duration
    • Non-periodic undulating drones
    • Each harmonic has a randomized gain, so the drones pulse non-periodically.
    • Drones were made from tightly filter pink noise, so drones have a small amount of soothing and airy pink noise.
    • Microtonal harmonic series relationships create beautiful beating between drone harmonics.
    • All drones have a fundamental of G1 (49Hz). Transpose them as needed to fit any project.
    • Partials are included in the metadata, for example, “fundamental_G1_harmonics_1_2_3_4_7_16”.
    DATA SONIFICATION:
    • Weather data included in the Soundminer Description and BWAV description fields.
    • Temperature data was translated as a combination of lowest harmonic, number of harmonics, and highest harmonic.
    • Generally, lower temperatures include bass harmonics and higher temperatures include treble harmonics. For example, the hottest day of the year only included harmonics 18 and 24.
    • Location: weather data is from the NOAA station at Helmut Mountain, Alaska in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Vehicles Harvester Claas Lexion 530 Play Track 46 sounds included From: $26.40

    The harvester Claas Lexion 530 Library contains all the sounds a decent harvester produces on the field in one day. We were allowed to accompany this gigantic 300+ horsepower machine on the field and document all its activities. It roars and sounds harsh and dangerous.

    Whether you are looking for realistic farm sounds or want to design a futuristic vehicle. The harvester files are ready to use or very easy to manipulate as they deliver sounds across all frequencies captured with high end equipment. Both helium-3 harvesting spaceships and apocalypse scrap transporters can be produced in just a few steps.

    In addition to the standard exterior recordings such as bypass, away and up, the library also includes on-board recordings from the cab, from the platform, as well as various mic positions such as directly above and beside the cutting knives, on the belt, at the unloading pipe and many more. In addition, there are selected foley sounds, as well as a few distant atmo sounds.

    70% of the revenue will benefit the non-profit association “Bulldogs for Kids e.V.” and by this benefit chronical ill children.

    The Farming Machine Bundle:

    You can also get this library as part of The Farming Machine Bundle, containing the files of “Harvester Klaas Lexion 530 (SOE001)” and “Kramer KL11 Oldtimer Tractor (1955) (SOE002)“, as well as 165mb of additional tractor recordings (on board mono files of the tractor Fendt 304 LSA).
  • Mechanical Heavy Industry Play Track 608+ sounds included $298.80 incl. vat

    Sound Mind Heavy Industry sound effects library is a massive collection of over 600 sound files of unique and hard to access machines and industrial ambiences, recorded both interior and exterior. To create this 45+ GB pack we went underground and climbed on constructions, we have been in both very hot and cold, humid and smelly places, wearing funky protective clothing, helmets and glasses.

    You will find large, heavy machines sounds in it, industrial vehicles, as well as pneumatic, electric, diesel or even antique steam engines sounds and many metal, wooden, debris and also liquid textures.
    During our searches we found many unusual sounds with great potential for sound design.

    Recording locations include:
    Coal Mines • Zinc Mine • Zinc Smelters • Scrapyard • Trams Repair Workshop • Train Factory • Steelworks • Vulcanizer • Quarry

    Sounds were recorded multi-mic and from different perspectives, giving large variety for designing purposes. We used microphones with extended frequency range (Schoeps CMC6XT MS kit, Sanken CO-100k) recording on 192kHz sample rate, shotgun mics (Sennheiser MKH-8060, MKH-815T, Neumann KMR81/KM120 MS kit) as well as Trance Audio Inducer stereo contact microphone (which was very useful in noisy environments and which also has very wide frequency range). We used Sound Devices 702, 744 recorders with MixPre, plus Zoom F8 and Sony PCM D-50.

  • Water & Oceans Hidden Waterfall Play Track 5 sounds included, 11 mins total $48 incl. vat

    Have you ever wanted waterfall recordings with character, and texture, as opposed to hours of white noise?

    Discover the roaring sound of a hidden waterfall, crashing on jagged rocks, pure ice-cold mountain water permeating the air.

    The waterfall, hidden in the Carpathian mountains, is small enough that it still has texture and movement, whilst retaining that unmistakable roaring sound.

    Recorded from different perspectives, distances and angles, over an hour and a half of recordings have been edited down to just over 11 minutes of audio at 24bit/96kHz, containing the essence of the waterfall.

    The files are tagged with rich SoundMiner metadata, explaining in detail the perspective from which each sound was recorded.

    • In High Desert Ambiences 4: Coyotes, I revisit the place where my field recording journey started: West Texas. On my drive out, a massive wildfire was burning large parts of the Davis Mountains. The day I arrived firefighters were finally able to contain the blaze, but sadly not before 22,000 acres burned. Much of the wildlife is too slow to escape, but luckily one pack of coyotes was fast enough to climb over a ridge. Normally I hear coyotes out in the plains where they love hunting jackrabbits. That night, however, I was recording from the edge of the dead fire. I was stunned to hear howling deep in the valley! The pack had run into the mountains to escape the blaze.
    • In this library, hear the angst-ridden vocals of coyotes running to escape a wildfire. Hear the howls and yips of an extremely close pack bouncing from high valley walls. Hear an echo chamber filled with the haunting howls of coyotes who has just had their home burned.

  • Weather High Desert Winds 1 Play Track 52+ sounds included, 200 mins total $70.80 incl. vat

    In this collection, get the blustery sounds of High Desert Winds 1 recorded in the resonant mountains of west Texas. This library includes sounds of the mountain ridge tops of the David Mountains with 15-50 mph gale force gusts, low whistling drones, breezes through pinyon pines, mesquite and much more. There are also seasonal recordings with leafy gusts, pouring rain, broad spectrum wind through winter grass, and crickets at night braving the weather. If you need sounds of the blustery wide open American Southwest, this is the library to check out.

    2% for the Planet:
