Environment recordings, ambiences and soundscapes – from all over the world, and beyond

  • The Paris Ambisonics sound effects library is a collection of 73 immersive city ambience recordings from the streets, plazas, and parks of Paris, France. Use these versatile sounds to enliven your scenes with an authentic city atmosphere.

    Recorded in 24-bit/96kHz with a Sennheiser AMBEO VR mic, Paris Ambisonics was captured at various locations throughout Paris including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Luxembourg Park and more. To capture these stunning ambiences, recordist Matt Snedecor traversed Paris with the goal of depicting its unique essence characterized by narrow streets, outdoor cafes, scooters and sirens. Be it bustling cab rides through dense boulevards or the resonant underbelly of the Arc de Triomphe, these authentic recordings embody the vibrant and dynamic spirit of Paris.

    Delivered in both Ambisonic and stereo formats, each audio file is embedded with rich descriptions for quick intuitive search results. Detailed metadata includes coordinates and cross streets for maximum geographic clarity.

    This library includes SurroundZone2 software by TSL Products that allows you to control the Ambisonics files by pointing “virtual microphones” any direction with a wide range of polar patterns. Unparalleled flexibility lets users match backgrounds with the specific setting of any scene and decode to mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1 and beyond. These recordings are also perfect for 3D Audio applications including VR and 360º video.

    Key Features:

    • 73 sound effects (27GB)
      • Delivered in both B-format Ambisonics and Stereo
    • 24-bit/96kHz broadcast .wav files
    • Descriptive embedded metadata
    • 100% Royalty-Free

  • City Life Pedestrian Streets Play Track 50 sounds included, 127 mins total $45

    Pedestrian Streets is a library of 50 ambiences from around 15 different streets, recorded in about 7 cities mostly in Bulgaria.

    Most recordings are made in late autumn or winter because bird life is minimized. The task of this library is to capture much of the different dynamics of pedestrian streets: from zero activity to busy streets, basically concentrating on light activity periods.

    It’s principally recorded in the morning, and you’ll hear the sounds of single footsteps, light voices, shopping streets, dogs, air conditioners, and more of the sounds of a rising city.

    Another basic idea is the minimal presence of cars (as much as possible). There are also atmospheres with greater dynamism, lively streets and various periods of the day.

    All files are meta-tagged in Soundminer

  • Industrial Power Station Play Track 84 sounds included, 318 mins total $50

    Boilers, turbines, recycle pumps! Desulphurisation flues, electrostatic precipitators, and solar photovoltaic arrays! We don’t entirely know what these things do – but we know for certain they sound amazing!

    Last year we were granted access to one of the UK’s largest coal-fuelled power stations. With hard hats, steel toes, and a swag of mics we recorded every space and machine we could. The result is a highly comprehensive collection of industrial recordings that describe heavy 20th century industry.

    We’re talking about the archetypal power station too, not something dumbed down for 2020. This place was the real deal! Great big looming cooling towers, massive halls of turbine engines, coal mills, rumbling underground passages, rooms full of electrical gadgets, pumps of all types, oh and a coal train unloading a 100 ton hopper.  It’s a hell of a library.

    We recorded in a quad setup using a pair of Sanken CO-100ks, a pair of Sennheiser 8020s. We also had a Schoeps CMXY nearby getting an independent perspective. The recordings are versatile, pitch like crazy, and are useful for hundreds of applications.

    These power stations won’t be around much longer – so we’re glad we got a chance to record this beast of industry while we could.

    Enjoy!

    “There’s a lot of great stuff in here.  A nice variety of steadies for sci-fi and industrial use.  There’s also tracks with just the right amount of activity (not TOO busy).  Authentic scale is hard to fake so this is a great pack of sounds to have for large mechanical spaces.  Great steam/air releases too, and a large servo motor startup that is a real gem.” -Dave Farmer

    “It is always a handy to have a library from these guys.  Well recorded and full of interest, Power Station is a great library and full of never before heard sounds. It’s sometimes difficult to visualise a space from a recording, but definitely not with this collection. They’re huge and real. Most of the time drones and tones can feel synthetic, but they have really managed to capture a true real industrial soundscape. They are definitely colossal.” – Ben Meechan

    – on the camera platform
    – in the upper level seats in the hallway
    – outside the doors pre and post game
    – in the platinum level bar
    – under the bleachers
    – from the top of the penalty boxes
