    MEDIEVAL LIFE – CONSTRUCTION KIT

    MEDIEVAL LIFE – CONSTRUCTION KIT is a real treasure when it comes to quickly designing the background ambience of a movie or game scene. As the sounds are meant to create a convincing background soundscape, the source sounds were recorded in distance to the microphone to capture the original medieval environments and to provide you with a nice open room environment right from the start without having to add complex synthetic reverb or impulse responses.

    Most of the sounds were recorded in authentic medieval environments in Germany. We went out to visit medieval heritage sites like ruins and castles. For the market place recordings we went to farmers markets around the cathedral in Mainz, Germany that was built around 975 A.D. A perfect place to capture the spirit of medieval market places.
    On our trip we recorded the hard life of people living in this era. We recorded medieval farm sounds like animals, mechanics of old tools, hurly-burly on marketplaces, blacksmiths hammering metal and working with wood, church bells, voices and a lot more.

    MEDIEVAL LIFE – CONSTRUCTION KIT with hundreds of single stereo source sounds from the categories ACTION, CRAFT, ANIMAL, WORK, VOICE, MECHANIC as well as hundreds of LOCATION recordings (some of them in Stereo and 5.0 Surround sound) has a size of more than 34GB. All files come in 96kHz/24bit HD sound quality.
    Inspire your audience with the unmistakable sound of the life in the Middle Ages.

  • Metal elements is a metal, iron, steel bonanza of hits, impacts, slams as well as mechanical sounds, levers, clicks, drops and drags. This library is especially suited for anyone looking to design sounds that are metallic in nature. The sounds contained in this library will also work fantastic as foley pieces to spice up fights, robot movement, crashes or any action scene for that matter.

    Some of the sounds found in the library make use of a contact microphone to add to the lower end frequency that would simply not translate using just a shotgun microphone.

  • Metallitronic is sound designer Nathan Moody’s latest collection of intense textures, a library of nearly three hours’ worth of metallic membranes and objects excited by electronic signals.

    Metallitronic was created using advanced synthesis techniques played back through various transducers into cymbals, gongs, bowls, steel plates, prefab metal buildings, and other resonant metallic objects, close-miked in stereo with extended-frequency-range microphones. This collection radically expands a sound designer’s palette of stressed-metal sounds, horror and tension elements, crystalline creaks and groans, unsettling background atmospheres, rattling vehicular interiors, creature sound sweeteners, the sound of massive machinery, earth-shaking rumbles, and stochastic, complex rhythms.

    Some textures let the complex synthesizer textures shine through – intense on their own, even if they weren’t amplified through metal – but the primary focus is on metallic drones, hits, pings, stresses, groans, wails, resonances, rattles, and unique timbres that can be layered into almost any project. The scale of the sounds ranges from detailed to overwhelmingly massive. The sounds invite aggressive filtering and extreme pitch shifting.

    Every sound is recorded in stereo at 24 bits, 192 kHz, and many sounds have ultrasonic frequencies. This library includes nearly three hours of recordings, all fully tagged with metadata. Multiple articulations are ganged into single files for convenience and organization.

  • Surround Military Buildings Play Track 106+ sounds included, 155 mins total From: $65

    Military Buildings is a collection of 5.0 room tones/ambiences and stereo & mono spot effects and activities recorded on location

    We extensively explored an array of interesting locations centered around an Abandoned Military Facility.


    Bentwaters is a former Royal Air Force base housing a wide range of interesting sonic spaces including:


    • Jet engine testing facility with exhaust tunnel.
    • Aircraft Hangers used during the late 70’s Cold War era.
    • Bomb stores, purpose built for the cold war to secure nuclear weapons.
    • Military Barracks.
    • A large Squadron Building with unique decontamination stations.
    • A series of old dilapidated barns on the site likely used for storage and general purpose.
    • K9 Dog kennels, jail cells and an array of lengthy corridors spanning the site.

    Our first task was exploring the base in its entirety to record high quality 5.0 room tones of each individual space.
    Some of these unique spaces have been untouched since the 70’s and are thus in a state of disrepair. Paint peeling off the walls, cracks scarring each room, window, and ceiling. The dilapidated state of these rooms creates minute details in the sonic architecture which add depth, character and can give a clear indication as to the size of the spaces and so have been left in the recordings.


    Next we set about recording spot fx with multiple perspectives (close up and wide) within the different spaces.
    These spot fx include:

    Doors (manual and electric), light fixtures, buttons/switches/levers, metal impacts, BG activities, compound gates, and any other fixture or fitting we could open, close, turn, twist, rattle, shake, impact


    All of our sounds have been recorded in high-quality 24bit, 96kHz using Sound Devices recorders and Sennheiser, microphones. Each file has been tagged with detailed Soundminer metadata to speed up workflow and increase organization.

  • We’re proud to release our first premier race ambience library, as we continue our exciting journey in sound experimentation with spatial audio. The Monaco Grand Prix 2018 is a genuine sonic document of the 76th edition of the Grand Prix Automobile de Monaco, the world’s most glamorous race.
    If you’re looking for unique and modern race engine sounds and ambiences to use in your commercial, movie, television or game projects, here you’ll find lot of sounds with different perspectives to start building real and tactile sport soundscapes.
    We made use of two favourite Ambisonics microphones: the Sennheiser Ambeo and the classic Soundfield SPS200, recorded across our Sonosax gear (SX-R4+, SX-R4, SX-M32) and their amazing preamps, which digested the high SPLs of the high-performance cars.
    But that’s not all: you’ll also find extremely accurate stereo recordings made with a Sanken CSS-5, an A-B Stereo Technique configuration with a couple of omnidirectional DPA 4060 and, last but not least, a custom MS rig based on a Schoeps MK 41 supercardioid capsule (Mid), plus a MK 8 figure-8 capsule (Side), amplified by their respective CMC 6 units.
    Looking for radical transformations? We recorded everything @ 96 kHz, so if you want to turn a pass-by into a dramatic spaceship pass, you’ll be free from any sonic artifacts.

  • 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

  • Mountain Rivers sound effects library is about strong, running water, which gains its power from waterfalls. The water falls from big heights and after it comes to the earth, it continues as a fast creek with a lot of water, or as we say “mountain river”. These recordings were made in the one of the most beautiful places in the World, Yosemite National Park.

    In the centre of Yosemite Park we can find Merced River (which is 145 miles / 233 km long), surrounded by mountains and waterfalls. Recordings of the Merced River were made from 12 various points and some of them includes recordings which were made with various distances. Also the Mountain Rivers library contains recordings from the bottom of two waterfalls: Bridalveil and Yosemite. Most of these waterfalls recordings were made from the middle of the bridges, the best place for getting awesome panoramic atmosphere.

    Mountain Rivers Included:

    Bridalveil Fall Bottom (Bridalveil Creek): 3 recordings from 2 bridges and a 4th recording from the side of the mountain river.
    Merced River: 12 recordings from 8 points include 1 / 5 / 15 / 20 / 50 meter distances from the mountain river.
    Yosemite Fall Bottom (Yosemite Fall Creek): 2 recordings from the bridge in the centre of the mountain river from 2 meters and additional recordings where river was surrounded by rocks with great and unique reverb effect.
