  • Abandoned Shelters – The Danish Bunker Coast features mysterious and eerie sounds recorded in and around abandoned bunkers along the Danish West Coast.

    The gathered ambiences form a comprehensive resource of steady winds, heavy gusts, rustling undergrowths as well as single waves and strong surfs that constantly stream and break through these inhospitable areas with concrete remains all around.

    A big part of the library was recorded inside the bunkers where the strong nature elements of wind and water are transformed into heavily comb filtered textures and dark atmospheres.

  • Animals & Creatures African Jungle Play Track 80+ sounds included, 460 mins total From: $140

    African Jungle is a huge collection of unique ambiences recorded in Central Africa’s Congo Basin rainforests. To my knowledge, these are the first surround field recordings made in this area. Last year I spent a whole month off the grid, listening to and recording a variety of habitats at all times of day and night, at the height of the rainy season when birds are most vocal. It took me many days of travel to get to these places, from using trains, boats, cars and planes to hiking on foot in the jungle.

Hear thunderclaps that ripple across glacial valleys and the soothing noise of a million raindrops on cottonwood leaves.
    • This library offers you a large collection of arctic rain. I hope you enjoy listening to the natural music of the weather as it sings through the boreal forests of Alaska.

    RECORDING TIPS – HOW TO RECORD RAIN:
    • Use microphones known to perform well in high humidity. I use Sennheiser microphones. View my full gear list – here.
    • Use cables made with Neutrik X-HD Series waterproof connectors. This keeps water from getting into your cable connection points.
    • Use a dry bag for your recorder. I like the Sea to Summit 65L bags because they have a wide mouth and can easily fit a recording bag through the opening.
    • Put your dry bag at least 25 feet away and cover it with local foliage. Otherwise you’ll just record the sound of rain hitting a dry bag.
    • Use a Cinela Pianissimo Double Mid/Side blimp with a Kelly Rain Cover.
    • Coat the inner cover of the Cinela Pianissimo with NixWax as Cinela directs on their website. This is a water repellant molecule that is also acoustically transparent. The water repellant causes the water to bead up and roll off while also letting the air through. Read more about how NixWax works – here.
    • The honeycomb of the Kelly Rain cover disperses drops as they hit the blimp which minimizes thumps. However, don’t use the Kelly Rain cover in areas with lots of insects because they tend to get stuck in the honeycomb, buzz for hours, and ruin recordings. The honeycomb cover also doubles as excellent protection for the blimp if a bear/moose/elk decides to chew on it.
    • Find a section of forest with low and dense deciduous leaves. These leaves catch the rain so drips don’t thump on the blimp. Occasional thumps during heavy rain are okay because they are easy to edit out in post.
    • Waterproofing a microphone blimp is totally game changing. I can now leave my rig out in the elements for 24 hours without fear of rain. Waterproof blimps and 32-bit float recorders have opened up a whole new world of recording for me  and I couldn’t be more excited.
    • Build a platform of local foliage to cover the blimp for extra protection. George Vlad has an excellent video on how to build a natural rain canopy – here.
    • I learned many of these rain recording techniques from George Vlad, so make sure you check out his work at Mindful Audio.

  • 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.

  • Weather Cinematic Winds Play Track 98 sounds included, 180+ mins total $199

    Recorded and designed by film sound legends Ann Kroeber and Alan Splet (well known for their work with David Lynch), the Cinematic Winds sound effects library delivers diverse recordings from eerie, hollow wind sounds to whipping, stormy moodscapes.

    Cinematic Winds is an exclusive collection of sound effects selected from the venerable Kroeber-Splet private recording archive, Sound Mountain. “Of all the sounds from our library, the wind recordings are some of the most iconic and evocative,” says Ann Kroeber, having created an extensive sound catalog with her late partner Splet over decades of pioneering their craft.

    Wind is one of the most difficult elements to record. This is why Pro Sound Effects is proud to offer this carefully curated library from two artful sound designers and recordists we have tremendous respect for. Take your next sound design project to the next level by dragging and dropping the work of Kroeber and Splet into your scene.

    This special collection includes over 3 hours of 24-bit/48kHz WAV format wind effects and recordings perfect for inducing subtle, subconscious emotion, imposing a powerful presence, and creating earthy or surreal soundscapes in your production.

    Descriptive embedded metadata helps you find exactly the sound you need with practical, literal interpretations as well as emotional impressions of the sound effects. The wind sounds are grouped into five categories:

    • Moody Winds: Tonal, eerie, mournful, lonely
    • Interior Winds: Resonant staircases, barns, caves, pipes
    • Nature Winds: Through trees, over mountains, water, sand
    • Wild Winds: Gusting, whipping, whooshing, swirling
    • Storm Winds: Intense, howling, rumbling, shrieking

  • Create with the dynamic energy of wind. As one of the most challenging subjects to record, wind sounds also inspire a range of creative and practical uses on projects of all types. That’s why we’re proud to present Cinematic Winds: Volume 2 – the exclusive followup to our most popular specialty library, Cinematic Winds.

    Like its predecessor, much of this wind sound effects library is curated from legendary film sound designers Ann Kroeber and Alan Splet – both well known for their work with David Lynch and more. Volume 2 expands on this with even more moody, colorful wind recordings from Academy Award®-winning sound artist Richard King (Dunkirk, Inception) plus recordist/sound designer Colin Lechner (Raconteur Sound).

    These sounds are full of character – from light breezes and swirling heavy gusts, to carefully-crafted whistling wisps and ghostly roaring swells. Capture the emotive power of wind as it rustles through leaves and howls through windows – ideal for inducing subconscious emotion, imposing a powerful presence, or creating both earthy and surreal soundscapes.

    Descriptive embedded metadata helps you find exactly the sound you need with practical, literal interpretations as well as emotional impressions of the sound effects. The wind sounds are grouped into five categories:

    • Moody Winds: Tonal, eerie, mournful, lonely
    • Interior Winds: Resonant staircases, barns, caves, pipes
