  • Destruction & Impact Volcano Play Track 13+ sounds included, 116 mins total $75

    MAFX019 Volcano is a collection of unique sounds recorded in Ethiopia’s Afar region at Erta Ale volcano. Erta Ale is one of only a handful of volcanoes with lava lakes in the world, situated in the Danakil Depression, one of the hottest and most inhospitable places in the world. The name means Smoking Mountain in the local Afarigna language and Erta Ale does not disappoint in this regard, as you can see in the video. This place is also known as the Gateway to Hell, an appropriate moniker given the 47C/117F temperatures and lots of dead fauna we encountered.

    Video Thumbnail

    There were only a few lava pits when the library was recorded but plenty of continuous and violent toxic gas releases. Occasionally the ground would move creating low frequency rumbles and debris falling. I had to use a long boompole in order to suspend my trusty MKH8060 over the edge and I improvised a spaced omni array by taping the MikroUsi mics to a video tripod ballhead. The expedition wasn’t 100% risk-free but it was more than worth it for these beautiful sounds.

  • Nature & Countryside Water Exploration Play Track 26 sounds included, 82 mins total $20

    These sounds were recorded over 3 years in southern Australia.

    It comprises ambience and atmosphere recordings of beach waves, forest streams, rivers, a dripping cave system and even a sewage processing plant (The Poo Machine!!). There are also Hydrophone recordings of urban swamp insect life, jetties and water treatment systems. Many of the recordings offer multiple perspectives of the same subject from close up to distant.

    They were all recorded using Sennheiser, DPA, Sanken and Soundfield Mics as well as a pair of Hydrophones. All recorded into Sound Devices 788 or 633 recorders.

    The recordings were mixed to stereo with minimal post processing.

    Most files are loopable. And great care was taken to record clean sounds that are useable in an edit.

    I hope you enjoy and find these useful for you projects.

    The Beach sounds were recorded on the Mornington Penunsula in Victoria Australia. The waves range from gentle currents lapping at the sand to heavy surf waves. Different perspectives from close to distant were recorded to give greater flexibility when editing. These were recorded using a pair of supercardioid mics.

    The cave recordings were captured at the Yarrangobilly caves in the Kosciuszko National Park, they feature a continuously dripping soundscape. The entrance to one of the caves is a large cavern with part of the roof caved in. In this space birds dart around and water drips. Further into the cave there is just the continual dripping of water. These were recorded using a spaced pair of Omni mics to give a sense of space and a centre hypercardiod to pick some detailed drips.

    Also captured at Kosciuszko National Park are some recordings of rain and wind gusts through trees. I was able to place the microphones and recorders into protected rock formation and leave them recording for hours on end. 

    A pair of hydrophones was used to explore an urban water treatment project at the Trin Warren Tam-boore (Bellbird Waterhole) The wetland has been designed to treat water from the surrounding area through natural biological processes.  It provides water to irrigation systems for the Royal Park Golf Course and other sporting grounds in Royal Park.

    I was able to record pumped water flow as well as a symphony of underwater insects. The insects probably included Backswimmers and Dragonfly larvae, often called ‘mudeyes’, amongst others.

    The streams and rivers were recorded in both country New South Wales and Victoria. Most of these recordings were captured using Soundfield Microphones, the ST450 Mk2 as well as the SPS200. There is a variety of fast flowing, gentle, close up and distant. As well as a ’study on fishing from a tin boat’. No fish were caught.!!

    And finally a machine. A sewage treatment plant gives us a great slopping, mixing sludge sound.

    I hope you enjoy these sounds.

  • Environments Water Flow by Soundholder Play Track 90+ sounds included, 188 mins total $40

    Water Flow took six months to create, and offers 90 BWAV files recorded in different locations. A huge part of this library is based on the recording sessions by (and in) rivers. Most recordings were done during the winter just before sunrise, to reduce the amount of unwanted sounds.

    Almost all recordings are completely clear and free from any birds in the background.

    The first location was river called Łyna, and there I’ve recorded a sound of water flowing at different speeds, along with the sound of a dam reducing the speed and height of the river’s flow. The second interesting part of this location was the amount of fallen trees in the water, causing the water to split. Because of this, there was a lot of sonically interesting places to record.

    The second river is called Guber, and it’s much smaller than Łyna. I’ve picked this place because of the really subtle water streams, and something even more amazing, natural dams built by beavers. The amount of work these animals put to built those dams is incredible.

    In addition to recorded rivers, this library also includes the sound of water dripping inside underground sewers. During one of my field recording trips I discovered a hatch. I could not resist to go inside, and what I discovered there was far beyond my expectations. I made a two small trips there to record it from different distances, with different microphones in mono and stereo.

  • Nature & Countryside Water Streams One Play Track 20 sounds included, 60+ mins total $15

    'Water Streams One' is the first library in my 'Water Streams' series that explores the bubbly and roaring sounds of rapids, rivers and streams found all around Finland.

    The library consists of 19 unique sounding locations ranging from large rapids to tiny streams. Most of the content was recorded in quiet Northern Finland locations and I even visited the Oulanka National Park to record its famous large roaring rapids.

    Due to challenging and hard to access locations I decided to record the library with portable Sony handheld recorders utilizing ORTF and XY techniques.

    The average length of each file is between 2-4 minutes so you can easily create your own loops for video games and other media.

    You get the sounds in two formats: 96 KHz 24 bit and in 44.1 KHz 16 bit, for more convenient ways of utilizing the sounds in games and other media.

  • City Life We Are The People Play Track 57+ sounds included $25

    We are the People is a sound effects library filled with protests chants from the 2012 NATO protests in Chicago.

    Two locations give this library two aurally unique crowd environments. The downtown protests reflect off the surrounding buildings, giving them a neat urban quality, while the Ravenswood protests give the impression of a more open environment. Groups of protesters in unified chant ranged in size from just a few to perhaps 200 or more. Many of the recordings have wonderful builds, starting with one or two voices and grow from there, in both size and intensity.

    These recordings work great as stand alone effects or for layering in some specificity to crowds. The next time your designing a defiant crowd, bring some authenticity with We are the People.
