  • Drones & Moods Aberrant Drones Play Track 79 sounds included, 409 mins total
    Rated 5.00 out of 5
    $49.99

    Discover nearly 7 hours of individually flavoured, hauntingly musical and ever-evolving drones, packaged neatly into 79 of the kind of audio files that you can never have enough of.

    In many ways, Aberrant Drones is the sister library of the Augmentation Elements library, as it provides you with the creative tools required to augment your sound design.

    Whilst the Augmentation Elements library arms you with tools such as whooshes, risers and stings, allowing you to sweeten specific elements of your sound design, the Aberrant Drones library allows you to augment the mood of an entire scene. Each audio file is populated with richly descriptive SoundMiner metadata, making it easier than ever before to sift through hours of abstract drones.

    This is why the metadata is usually described in terms of feeling and mood, like so:

    Drone,Sci-Fi,Abstract,Cacophonous,Glowing,Impending Doom
    Drone,Sci-Fi,Abstract,Textured,Vibrating,Oscillating,Anxiety

    Augment your creative tool-box with Aberrant Drones, and transform your sound design work!

  • 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

  • Environments Castles Play Track 243 sounds included, 213 mins total From: $136

    Sounds for the Castles library were collected in four castles – museums (medieval, renaissance and baroque) in southern Poland. My intention was to record sounds of old doors, furniture and every interesting prop I could find, in authentic acoustic environment. Some of the spaces were very reverberant, some just have a bit of ambience, but all are authentic and add specific colouration to sounds. Also, part of the sounds was recorded outside.

    As always, visiting those places, I found many interesting characterful objects – most of them are heavy wooden or metal. So expect a lot of creaks and squeaks. Where I could, I recorded variations and versions from different POVs.

    Another important part of the library are Background Activities.
    Editing sound for films, I always find myself in need for adding some background life to scenes. We all love great foley, but having isolated background activities recorded in real spaces adds another level of realism. So wherever I found interesting spaces, we performed some activities and movements on old stone or wooden floors.

    It’s not supposed to substitute foley, syncing it step by step. But it will help to create separate layer of atmospheres.

    We also found medieval Torture Chamber, which inspired us to record some of the tools, distant movements of chains etc. but also some screams, all with real dungeon reverb.

    Sounds recorded in locations such as:
    An armoury • blacksmiths • cellar • chamber • chapel • corridor • courtyard • dungeon • gothic hall • hallway • stairwell • torture chamber • tower

    Objects and activities include:
    A chest • chain • crate • door • floor • footsteps • handle • locks • metal objects • movement • stone • tool • trapdoor • window • wooden objects

    Sound categories:
    Doors – 145 files • BG Activities – 49 files • Props – 20 files • Furniture – 16 files • Screams – 12 files

    You can also get this library along with the Old Cottages library – at a special bundle price. Choose your preferred version below.
  • Environments City Balcony Ambiences Play Track 10+ sounds included, 125 mins total $30

    In City Balcony Ambiences you will get the sounds of 10 different stereo recordings of city atmospheres, all of them recorded from the perspective of a balcony.

    Recordings have been done during different periods of a day and in different locations:

    1. Three recordings from Dublin (Ireland): featuring a general construction ambience, a residential street and a busy street at rush hour (Irish sirens are included).
    2. Two recordings from Menorca (Spain): recorded from a balcony facing a sea front. Restaurants and distant voices are the main character of these files.
    3. Two recordings from Dusseldorf (Germany): the classic German tram is present in both recordings. There are also traffic, pedestrians and German sirens.
    4. One recording from Thessaloniki (Greece): recorded during a rainy day, so the sound of the wet road makes it characteristic.
    5. One recording from Barcelona (Spain): facing an inner patio. The construction crew present in every Spanish building make an appearance.

    Recordings feature sounds such as traffic, people talking, pedestrians walking by; cars, trams, trucks, motorbikes and scooters passbys, dogs barking, all of them from a distant perspective.

    Descriptive markers have been included to highlight interesting events in an otherwise featureless waveform. These markers can be read in programs such as Izotope RX, Reaper, and Soundminer. The markers are also included as .txt files in separate folder.

    All files (except one) have been recorded in 96 kHz/24 bit, with Soundminer and BWAV embedded metadata. Recordings go from 4 minutes up to 22.

  • Environments Diffuse City Play Track 116+ sounds included, 752 mins total $75

    Diffuse City is the unique urban ambience sound effects library you didn’t know you were missing. It captures the urban environment in its many forms – all based around the idea of diffuse ambience.

    The Diffuse City library is purpose-built for the times an environment needs to be felt, but not be distracting.

    Every track in Diffuse City was recorded with some sort of real life “filter” in mind; be it distance, elevation, time of day, physical material – Anything to provide the feeling of city life with out the specificity of many urban ambience libraries. No distracting close car pass-bys or people talking; only great natural ambience beds.

    Diffuse City was recorded in big cities, suburbs, small towns, and rural settings over a span of two years. It was largely recorded over very late nights, when very few people we’re around. Occasionally, however, a car would pass by… a gun would go off… While these were edited out of the recordings, they are included as “extras” in the library. Perfect for adding some flavor to a moment that’s authentic to the environment it was recorded in.

    Metadata – and markers:

    In addition to thorough metadata, each ambience in Diffuse City is embedded with markers highlighting unique moments that aren’t easily visible in a waveform. Software like Soundminer v4.5 and Reaper can display these markers, making it easy to identify distinct sonic moments in an otherwise nondescript waveform.

    reaper-markers-example

    Markers in Reaper

    There are 10 areas of focus in Diffuse City:

    Elevated City • Distant Highways • Underground City • Distant City • Under Bridges • City Rumble • Empty Parking Lots • Alleys • Industrial • Window Contacts

  • Nature & Countryside Dormant Village Play Track 6 sounds included, 12 mins total $40

    Discover the quaint charm of a sleepy Northern English town, on a cold and windy night, the sound of windchimes shimmering through the air.

    The Dormant Village Library was recorded in a small village in North Yorkshire, England, on the night before Christmas. It was very cold and windy, and there were almost no people around, as everyone was sipping hot cocoa in their homes.

    The library was recorded in a few different locations, some close to the little traffic that was still present, and some further away. The recordings were then polished and edited down to just about 12 minutes, preserving the essence of the location.

    In addition to the descriptive SoundMiner metadata embedded in the files, I have also added markers in iZotope RX, which can be read in some versions of SoundMiner, Reaper, etc.

    The markers indicate small sonic events, such as distant, melodic windchimes, or when the wind picks up, allowing you to understand what happens throughout the recording without having to listen to the whole thing.

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

    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.

This collection features sounds that will make you fall in love with the desert with the trickling of distant rivers, smooth cricket chirps, echoey caws from ravens so close you can hear the details in their wings flaps, snorts from a cautious yet curious mule deer, choruses of birds at dawn, and much more. Most recordings are well over 4 minutes, with one half-hour night-time track that will make you want to take out your tent immediately. For a mini-nature collection of lush, peaceful nature sounds from the heart of the American Southwest, here’s High Desert Ambiences 1: Miniature.

These markers can be read in programs such as RX, Reaper, and Soundminer. The markers are also included as .txt files in the sound files folder.
