  • City Life Berlin Ambiances I Play Track 31 sounds included, 114 mins total $26

    Berlin Ambiances I is 114 minutes/3,69 GB of pure Berlin in 31 separate files – recorded mostly in 24bit/96kHz quasi-binaural stereo, with Primo EM172 omni capsules.

    This collection contains stealth recordings of various Berlin locations, including a good deal of train sounds and, well, Berliners!

    I went to locations such as the Bodemuseum (crazy natural reverbs), the Hauptbanhhof (enormous, diffuse train station-ambiance) and Haus der Kulturen der Welt (great restaurant vibe and busy foyer). All this captured during January 2015, with a head-worn set of near- or quasi-binaural microphones.

    Why quasi? Because the microphone elements are not entirely behind the Pinna (that thing protruding in front of the ear-canal), which means the true, 3-dimensional binaural experience isn't there. In this setting, my head shadow acted more like a Schneider disc or such, which means these recordings should translate better to speakers than, say, a Neumann dummy head. Btw: the non-binaural recordings were done in October 2013, using just my Sony PCM M10 recorder.

    All in all, a collection of useful ambiances for your next Berlin-esque project.

    You get:

    • People, places and trains!
    • Interiors and exteriors
    • Metadata included in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats

  • City Life Board Games – Gamedesigner’s Audio Toolkit 01 Play Track 2358 sounds included $25 $15

    The Board Game Sound Library features more than 2.350 sounds.

    These sound effects are especially useful when it comes to creating games that simulate real boardgames or modern apps featuring game mechanisms as dice rolling and moving tokens.

    The Board Game Sound Library covers 6 main categories, granting easy access to a variety of sounds — dice, pawns (or meeples or checkers) moving, tokens made of cardboard and wood, plastic pieces and many more.

    The sounds provided by the Board Game Sound Library have been carefully produced, selected, edited and tested.

    The Board Game Sound Library offers a great variety. Especially in games, sound repetitions of the same recording-take when rolling a dice or moving a pawn can bore the audience. So within this library, the sounds have been recorded in many different repetitions and variations.

    All sounds of the Board Game Sound Library are royalty-free. They may be used for private and commercial purposes.

    Provided in 96 kHz / 24bit AND 44,1 kHz / 16 bit

  • Environments British Stately Home Play Track 256 sounds included, 496 mins total $49

    British Stately Home is a collaboration between two award-winning sound designers, Stefan Henrix (Chernobyl, Batman Begins) and Steve Fanagan (Room, Frank). It is a collection of 256 files recorded at 24bit/96kHz, totalling 18.6GB. The recordings are a mixture of mono, stereo, LCR and 5.0 files. In some cases there are multiple perspectives on the same recording (close, mid and wide). There are also Impulse Responses from several of the building's more characterfully reverberant rooms, which have been recorded from different perspectives and edited for use with Altiverb.

    Sounds for this library were recorded over two days in a beautifully maintained rural British Stately Home; a late-18th-century neo-classical mansion. We set out to record any and all aspects of the building and its surroundings. The collection includes doors, windows, fireplaces, clocks, drips, keys and various unusual, period specific props we came across.

    The interior of the building was one of the quietest places either of us have ever recorded and the Roomtones we've captured here are some of the most still and neutral recordings we've both made.

    All of the sounds are authentic and the spaces we recorded in are reverberant, have their own ambience, and have coloured each of the recordings with the natural acoustic of this magnificent building.

    We often set-up with multiple mics to capture different perspectives of the same recordings and these will hopefully offer the user interesting options as they work with these sounds.

    At times we have left our own movements at the beginning and end of recordings, as they captured something of the building's unique acoustic and have proven useful to both of us in our own film work with this library. This is a diverse and versatile library and the recordings take well to pitch and time shifting, and to other plugin manipulation.

    Equipment Used: Sanken CMS-7S, DPA4060, Sennheiser MKH60, Rode NT4, Sound Devices 702T, Sound Devices USB Pre-2, Roland R26

  • City Life British Suburbia Play Track 15 sounds included, 35 mins total $50 $45

    We all know what central London sounds like. It’s noisy, crowded, and full of people trying to sell you watches. Ok, maybe that last point wasn’t that relevant, but have you ever wondered what lies beyond?

    A short drive towards the suburbs will reveal a world filled with warm beer, cricket, and endless parks, where deer roam free.

    When planning this library, the intention was to capture the quieter side of the metropolis, all year round! As a result, this library will receive multiple updates over the coming months. There will be one more summer update soon, along with an autumn update, winter update, and spring update.

    If you purchase the library now, you will get it at the lowest price, and you will also get all the remaining updates for free.

    So far, the first version of the library contains 15 .WAV stereo files at 96kHz/24 bit, recorded with a Sony PCM-D100/1, and contains approximately 35 minutes of summer ambiances in different locations throughout suburban London. Over the following months, I’ll keep traveling around the suburbs, collecting more and more ambiances, each update representing its own season.

    Each file has been carefully edited in iZotope RX in order to remove as much unwanted noise as possible, such as random shouting, barking, etc. This will provide you with clean ambiences that will add character to your projects, without distracting the audience. That being said, do please note that the recordings contain some amount of traffic noise, and some also contain airplane noise. This is, of course, unavoidable when recording in a city such as London.

    In addition to that, each file has been filled to the brim with SoundMiner metadata, allowing you to quickly search through the files, waste less time and dedicate more time to what you love doing!

    If you have any questions about this library, feel free to quickly send me an e-mail. I tend to reply within minutes.
