  • Roomtones Old House Play Track 92 sounds included, 606 mins total $97

    Old House is a collection of doors, creaky wood floors, cupboards, footsteps, surround roomtones and various actions captured in natural reverb in a 1913 French traditional rural house.
    You’ll also find creepy resonant footsteps upstairs (recorded from downstairs), distant doors, antique clocks, wooden stairs or even barn doors and windy roomtones.

    This library is the perfect match for any project taking place in places like mansions, castles, old country house, pretty much any reverberant interior with that vintage feel.

    The vast majority of the sounds were simultaneously recorded from 3 perspectives :

    • a close LCR setup of Sennheiser MKH 8040 + MKH 8050
    • a mid distant pair of Line Audio CM3 in ORTF
    • a distant AB pair of Lom Usi

    This lets you pick the best sonic perspective for each situation. From an up close / full sounding LCR array to a fully reverberated distant pair.

    During the 3 day recording session, we also captured impulse responses in many areas of the house, these could come in handy if you want to make other SFX match with our Old House natural reverb, these are delivered in a separate folder, with pre-saved Altiverb presets.

    Like all aXLsound collections, this sound library includes detailed, comprehensive, UCS compliant metadata.
    We also added markers to some of the longer files so you will quickly identify the most interesting parts. (see picture below)

    We present here an ambience sound library from the collection ‘Wonders of Nature’ that captures the magical essence of dormant snowy forests.

    We took care to record different time of the day but also different settings as well as various weather conditions as wind, blizzard, snow, freezing rain, stillness.

    The library is available in stereo, and surround.

  • Nature & Countryside Ambiences African Jungle Play Track 80+ sounds included, 460 mins total From: $190

    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.

  • City Life Sound Effects Hospital Ambiences Play Track 35+ sounds included, 103 mins total From: $50

    If you're after hospital sounds, here's a beautiful suite of surround sound hospital ambiences.

    Access to hospitals can be tricky. Credentials are required, and different rules must be followed for every step one takes deeper into the building. It's not as simple as just grabbing a rig and walking in the front door.

    Our hospital ambiences were recorded during one extensive day long shoot where we were granted access to one of the nation's top medical campuses. There are surprisingly few “hospital machines” making beeping noises at any given location within the building, which gives these sounds the flexibility to be used in any large institutional building.

    Both public and non-public areas are covered, including:
    – exterior traffic with a helicopter taking off
    – large 3 story lobby area
    – multiple nurse's stations
    – the family waiting room
    – the cafeteria
    – the pathology lab
    – an operating room prep

    Each location was recorded in dual MS and decoded using the excellent Schoeps double MS decoding tool.

    The end result is an immersive set of recordings that show off the reality of what a hospital really does sound like. Pick up a copy and cover your hospital scenes the right way.

    Two versions are available:

    Full version:
    • 24 bit, 96kHz quadraphonic split wav files

  • For this sound effects library, we traveled across Alaska, from the extreme north to the south coast to capture the spirit of these nordic and wild landscapes: Boreal forests, arctic and alpin tundras, glaciers, rivers, and lakes.

    Here the soundscapes reflect the extreme weather conditions: Silent ambiances punctuated by the elements: Wind, snow, rain, serving the erosion.

    In this wilderness, animals remain discreet. We had the chance to capture many birds with our microphones: Owls, ducks, seagulls, trumpeter swans, bald eagles, common ravens, migratory birds, and many other species – and a few other animals: Hoary marmots, arctic marmots, squirrels and moose.

    -The sound bank contains 66 sound takes recorded in ambisonic at 24/96khZ (a total of 330 files).

  • “Summer in the fields – Crickets and cicadas” is the right Library if you are trying to create a natural sound scenario during the summer.

    The library contains over 8.4 GB which exceeds 1.43 hours and a total of 30 files of high-quality material in discrete 5.0 surround format.

    Atmospheres ready to be combined with other elements to create the right sound for the image you are working on.

    The Library was built in Europe – Italy, in the Lazio countryside. Between the end of May and the beginning of September and the sultry heat is audible in the recordings.

    The squealing of cicadas is a fundamental sound element to design the sound of a warm and dry outdoor environment.

    At night the crickets are beautiful.
    Each place has its crickets that emit sounds at different rates and frequencies.
    Agitated, calm, psychedelic, relaxing …
    Crickets are a fundamental element to create an emotional night scene.

    Other animals are obviously present in the recordings; morning birds, owls, crows, geese, insects and bees, chickens, etc.

    The registered natural fields are near lakes, rivers, chicken coops/farms, country houses, woods and cultivated fields.

    The large part of the files have not human elements like traffic or agricular sounds, other ones have some distant traffic and are pretty for contemporary countryside.

  • City Life Sound Effects Quiet Streets Play Track 87+ sounds included, 216 mins total From: $49

    A slight breeze, the city rumble, distant people chatters, a bird passing by, crickets chirping, a little rain or snow, the tranquility inside the city is a fragile and magical moment.

    City streets are the channels of all the possibles, a heat place for sensorial stimulus connecting people lives and their urban activities throughout the day. Yet when it becomes quiet we still perceive its energy and are able to sense the mood of the moment with serenity.

    These recordings were made at ground level with very little editing in order to keep them natural and as close as a human would experience the city on a daily basis. At times, distinct activities can be heard in the distance although the most noisiest events were taken out. Each file is loopable.

    Also, every season and weather condition are represented. This library has been thought for the universal need of sonic bed in urban scenes, used as glue or ‘exterior roomtone‘.

    This selection is the result of 15 months of recording throughout the multicultural city of Montreal (considered the most European City in North-America). The mix of culture in this city gives it a universal flavor that makes it belongs to the citizen of the 21st Century world.

    The library contains 60 Stereo ambience and 27 Surround ambience recordings. Each sound files are between 1 to 5 minutes long. The surround recordings are embedded in an interleaved wav files of 4 channels (quad).

  • ROOM TONES – Industrial Building delivers hugely atmospheric ambience recordings gathered in an '80s Industrial Building in the east of Dresden, Germany.

    The library sounds were captured with a 4 channel 60 cm IRT cross and 4 Sennheiser MKH8020 omnis mounted. The recordings took place on a stormy and rainy Sunday. Due to the blank surfaces inside the building, thin single-glass windows and large air shafts, the weather elements got massively amplified by walls and floors.

    Additionally the rain water pipes are placed inside the building which caused a constant sound of flowing water. Also the sound of the central heating was clearly perceptible along the floors.

    The library contains 19 scenes recorded in 4-channel IRT surround. Each scene consists of 2 complementing stereo tracks and is more than 3 minutes long.

  • A comprehensive sound library from the enchanting world of the Middle Ages featuring meticulously recorded elements that come together harmoniously to create a realm of realism that transports your audience back in time, including isolated elements, acoustic impulse responses, noiseprints, and ambience loops.
