Ya su, Kalós órises, and welcome to Athens & Crete!
From the ancient bustling markets to the untouched natural beauty of the Mediterranean coast, this library epitomises the notion of two sonic worlds colliding. We set out with the goal of capturing this historical part of the world and quickly learned this could only be done by fully embracing this polarity. So here we are, two libraries in one and boy is it a cracker!!
This capital city, steeped in history, wrestles elegantly with the old and new. Market trader calls fill the archaic streets as they have for centuries before whilst across town the modern heart of Athens beats to the sound of cars and motor bikes.
We captured street buskers, back alley murmurs, bustling city squares, markets, heavy traffic, skylines and even a religious sermon!
400km away from the chaos of Athens sits the serene island of Crete, a picture of unchanged Mediterranean life. Unlike Athens, nature dominates here and we got our ankles wet recording all she has to offer; big surf, coves and gurgling rock pools. Mountain goats, crows, roosters and an early dawn chorus. Insects of the Agia Erini Gorge – more Cicadas than you can shake a stick at!
So whether it's Game of Thrones or the next Bourne film, this beast will help bring your locations to life!
Looking for baby sounds? So were we, and here's roughly how long it took to capture them: It took a very, very long time and lots of patience to gather this precious collection of laughing, dreaming, grouching, coughing, crying, shouting, talking, weeping, whining, burping and babbling bundles of joy.
We invited a lot of babies at the age from 3 to 24 months – boys and girls – to our studio.
They followed our call, brought their parents and the funny and often loud recordings started. We also equipped every new parent in our office with our best microphones and recorders and instructed them on how to record their own babies at home. You'll just love the multicolored, sweet and piercing high-quality recordings.
The library comes with 152 files in 96kHz/24bit High Definition Audio and has a size of more than 500MB. All sounds are royalty free, guaranteeing you best quality as always.

With A Sound Effect, Asbjoern has created a web site where our international community can browse, learn, and share the vast fruits of our labors. Together we are accelerating the very real potential power of sound design as a recognized art form.
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!

A Sound Effect is a great resource for keeping up on what's out there in the SFX library world. The site is well organized and it's easy to find stuff.
I love the behind the scenes articles - and the ability to purchase directly through the site is super convenient. The process is very straight forward and painless. I recommend it all the time.
