  • World Sounds Church Bells of Norfolk Play Track 244 sounds included, 464 mins total $40

    A distinct sound of the traditional English countryside, the ringing of church bells is an art that has been practiced for centuries, be it to summon the people to their prayers, celebrate a wedding, or announce a death.

    “Church Bells of Norfolk” is a collection of sound recordings taken at a variety of different churches throughout the County of Norfolk, England- an area famous for it's large number of surviving medieval churches.

    The bells of each church vary in size, weight and tone and no two towers are the same, meaning that the resulting sound varies from location to location.
    Some churches are nestled amongst the bustling town centres- their chimes echoing off nearby buildings whilst competing with the raucous noise of passing traffic whilst others stand in glorious isolation in the countryside.

    Aside from the exterior recordings, this collection also features recordings taken from inside the belfry as well as below in the ringing chamber, capturing the clatter of the rope pulleys and the calls of the tower captain as they instruct the ringers.

    Also included are a selection of clock chimes as well as a set of sounds from the automated 12-bell carillon of St. Martin's, Glandford, which plays one of a selection of hymn tunes every third hour.

  • Cars Crowds and Streets in Tokyo Play Track 133+ sounds included $55 $44

    Every area in Tokyo has a unique landscape and distinguishing atmospheres.
    Because of it being a metropolitan city, once you step into one of the alleys, skyscrapers defuse the traffic sound which then becomes city rumbles and only delivers distant trains and distant traffics.

    And on the contrary, main streets are always busy with traffics and pedestrians.

    This time, we captured crowds and streets from many locations in Tokyo.
    Crowds in TOKYO features Japanese crowds (walla) such as in authentic izakaya bars, cafes, train stations, and on shopping streets, fish market streets and more.
    And STREETS in TOKYO features busy traffics on highways, main streets, distant traffic from alleys and city rumble and more.

  • In this sound pack I’ve included an in-depth selection of active ambiences. This library is focused more on the natural ambience of both busy main streets and calmer side streets.

    Most sounds were captured below 110 St. and prominently in the Lower East and West Village. There are a multitude of police and firetruck sirens at varying distances as well as some not so common areas like the Intrepid Pier and the Hudson River Heliport ambience.

    I’ve also included some extensive subway rides. All boring bits were edited out for a strong final product. There are multiple train rides with various levels of walla and PA announcements.

    One thing that is very common in NYC during the summer months are the rain and thunderstorms. I’ve included a number of wet traffic, distant thunderstorms and heavy rains.

    All in all this is a good representation of New York's streets and subway systems.
