Inside you’ll find recordings with materials like cardboard, foam, glass, leather, metal, paper, plastic, wood and different objects.

Punchy Transients is an organized toolbox that serves as a reliable source of ”layers of impact” which many, many sounds do require to be in their best fit. It is also a trusty stash for designers who need to save some time to focus on something else.
The library content was made by recording a collection of hits on a punching bag using many techniques. Also, a dry version of each sample and a folder of bonus thumps are included.
I went there, so you don't have to. The nerv wrecking sounds of a fork scraped across a plate, the annoying scratches of fingernails on a coated pot are as well part of this library as many similar and sometimes less unpleasant sounds.
The major part of this library has been recorded in 192kHz with Earthworks QTC 50 microphones. Frequencies up to over 90 kHz are captured with plenty of the noises and allow for decent pitch and bend fun. Plastic, wood, metal, glass, porcelaine, syntetic leather and rubber has been used to perform squeaks, screeches, squeals, creaks, groans and scratches. Each material has been dragged and rubbed against each other in different speed and with varying pressure to make sure to get multiple variations of each sound.
This versatile library is a rich resource and a starting point for creature sound design, iron weapon action, robotic and machine movements and many more. Also great for music production – check the demo. Anything that should make the audience goose bumps or sound old an tortured will profit from “QUEETSH”.
Caution: some sounds might be considered unpleasent / annoying.

This library is great to quickly place samples for rolling objects but also a never ending collection of source sounds & textures for all things releated to rolling, rumbling, driving, rotating and spinning.
I wanted to cover a lot of grounds, so I have objects rolling on grass, cobblestone, concrete, tar, wood, steel, plastic, carpet …
and these objects include cars, bikes, balls, skateboards, stones, push carts, tires, garbage cans, a buggy, a wheelchair and much more.
In addition, there are a lot of sounds in here I already used for designing otherworldy atmos or futuristic weapons, so lots of options here.
Most sounds are mono recordings with the mic following (or being attached to) the object. But there is also a section with bypass sounds in stereo and some onboard recordings in stereo. And not only the onboard of a car without motor rolling across different types of cobblestone, but also mics attached inside a garbage can which then was rolled through the streets.
This library contains my go-to sounds for all things rolling and most sounds have been recorded in 192kHz/24bit with Earthworks QTC50 mics to allow a maximum pitch / slowing down action. As the library evolved and grew over different years, a broad range of mics have been used. DPA 4060s, DPA 4061, Shure SM 57, JrF Contact C Series, Neumann KMR 81i, Ambient Emesser and on a few recordings I used other sample rates like 96/24 or 48/24.
125 pristine roomtones from locations including offices, universities, schools, apartments, hotels, laboratories, bathrooms, stairwells & garages. Unwanted background sounds have been removed through the use of Izotope Spectral Repair, resulting in a wide variety of refined roomtones. All sounds were recorded using the Sound Devices Mix-Pre 6 and a stereo pair of Sennheiser 8020s.
Rummage is a collaborative sound library from SoundBits and Glitchedtones with a focus on unsystematic searches through everyday items.

Featuring searches through paper, pockets, trash, wallets, retro media, wood, tools, bags, wardrobes, metal and lots more… your movie scene, game environment or even music production in need of some Rummage, is covered, or more appropriately, uncovered!”.

Recorded over Craig’s 34 year career as an esteem Australian sound designer, this library consists of hallway walla, classroom walla, playgrounds, entrance halls and locker rooms from a variety of primary & high schools.
Shards is a sound library that's all about that (breaking) glass.
It contains glass and porcelain being smashed, rustled, trickled and dropped from two different microphone perspectives! Shard's intended use is for anything icy, glassy and porcelain-y.
Motor on, crunch, vrrmmmmm, other crunchy paper shredding sounds. SHRED IT includes sound files of single and multiple paper shreds, on off buttons, reverse motor, paper foley, ripping, crumple, and more! A total of 50 files with over 534 sounds in it, recorded at 96kHz, 24 bit using the AT897 Shotgun Microphone. Exported as dual mono .wav files.

Whether it’s the sound of a steak being placed on a red hot barbecue, the spitting of oil from a boiling pan to the cracking of a fire, this library features an assortment of sizzling sounds.

A little skateboard recording session of some rolling on surfaces such as Wood, Metal, Concrete and Asphalt. Board manipulations like Wheels spinning, Board impact on the floor, Grinding metal and concrete – and more.
The library contains 114 files of skateboarding sounds.

This library is ideal for anyone looking for sounds of skiing, snowboarding or a ski resort, whether on the slopes, facilities or surrounding towns. We have put together a diverse mix of sounds to make sure you have coverage of all the different elements you might need in a ski resort environment.
For the slopes you will find things like passing by skiers/boarders, sitting on lifts, lift rollers, and of course lots of detailed skiing and snowboarding both on-board and off-board, carving turns, hard stops, etc. (not all snow is the same so we have recorded in different consistencies of snow). For specific sounds there are snowmobiles, dog sleighs, and closeups of sounds of bindings, sticks, putting on gear, crunchings, amongst others. And for environments you will find things like lift station backgrounds, small ski town, mountain restaurants, and terraces.
This idea was created with efficiency and budget in mind. On independent films we don't always have the luxury of budgeting out an extensive amount of foley. There are tons of resources for cutting cloth, props, and footsteps, but there are none for actions of the human body in every day situations. In this comprehensive library you will find touches, pats, scratches, slides, clasps, slaps, and so many other common actions involving skin that will help bring realism to your projects.
Viscous materials are probably one of the more common elements that come up on a regular basis, and one of the grossest to record. Let me save you the trouble. Slime is a collection of different Viscous materials ranging from literal slime to more abstract slime-like sounding materials like rubber.
One of the featured sounds of the library is a gallon of slime being tossed around, man-handled, and squished.
All the items in this collection were recorded at 192khz with a Sanken CO100k, so there's a lot of flexibility to be had pitching and manipulating the sounds.
Before you stick your hand in that jar of mayo, give the demo a listen. It might just save you some time, and smelling like a sandwich the rest of the day.

There are many great independent sound effect libraries available these days. The main problem with having so many, is keeping track of them!
A Sound Effect is a great hub, and is one of the first places I visit to look for sounds by category or genre. I started coming here to see if I could find libraries that I knew I had heard, but forgot WHERE I had heard them.
And in the process discovered libraries I never would have found otherwise. Great work! Keep it up!
We're always looking for new sounds to mangle, so when A Sound Effect had a holiday sale, I tried them out.
The purchase experience is really smooth and quick, and delivery is almost instant.
I'll definitely come back to them again in the future!
A Sound Effect is a wonderful resource for indie sound effects libraries. On top of that, it has some of the finest sound design, film and game audio interviews!
I often need very specific types of sounds so I've become a big supporter of independent recorders.
Until now I've always had to go to their individual websites. Now I can find them all in one place.
And, Asbjoern is great to work with!
A Sound Effect is a well curated boutique sound effects shop and a great place to find industry interviews and learning resources.
