SMOOTH is a collection of 140 24-bit/48khz wave sound effects.
I’ts delicate, soft, deep, eerie, cinematic. Its sounds are crafted for slow motion shots, abstract film sequences, motion design shots and mysterious, not aggressive, evocative and ethereal projects.
All sounds are organized into 8 categories:
They are total wet and 100% reverbered, designed with a “light touch”, definitely the opposite of big distorted and punchy sounds.
This collection includes 80 clips of the best of winter: chilly snow crunches, wet, sliding snow, and snow boulder drops. Brittle snow crunches are mixed with beefy snow impacts, and more. And there are no studio or Foley tracks here: these tracks are all actual field recordings of frigid, Canadian snow. Includes bonus Soundminer metadata.
Snow & Ice is an extensive collection of various ice and snow sounds recorded in quiet rural locations in Northern Finland between 2015-2017. The library contains 1700+ sounds / 2.9 GB worth of material recorded and mastered in 96KHz 24bit quality, so they are more than ready for pitch shifting and other heavy audio processing.
Among the biggest highlights of this library are the industry’s first glassy yet heavier sounding ice lantern breaks which will definitely be useful in adding unique twist to your material sound design. The library also comes with a huge variety of snow and ice debris sounds, snow block breaks and even footsteps on frozen snow and ice debris.

This library features recordings created using a “Knas Ekdahl Moisturizer”, a boutique spring reverb effects unit where three reverb springs are exposed, allowing them to be hit, played, and manipulated in real time.
The unit also includes a multi-mode analog filter, and when combined with the playability of the springs, opens up many sound creation options.
The result is a unique sound effect library of massive metallic hits, clangs, scrapes, plucks, bounces, and rattles. The springs were played like a percussion instrument, using a collection of found objects, such as hammers, mallets, allen wrenches, forks, and plastic / metal rods. The springs were also stretched to alter the pitch, and objects were placed on the springs, much like a prepared piano, to alter the sound.
No other effects were applied other than the built-in multimode filter (high pass, low pass, band pass, and resonance) on certain sounds. These include sub-sonic hits, sweeping filtered metallic scrapes, and drones that round out the collection.
Steel Strained Faunethic sound library is a unique collection of 59 sounds of large metal structure under stress and pressure.
This library focuses on the musicality and the tonality of metal material, perfect to add tension and anxiety to your productions.

This library provides authentic and interesting sounds, recorded with Neumann, MBHO and DPA mics powered by an Aeta 4minX.
Recorded and edited in high resolution, these sounds are easy to pitch down and time stretch to create unique and surprising sounds.
All Faunethic tracks include metadata tags carefully edited, compatible with Soundminer, Soundly and Basehead.
Here a library of one of the most active volcano in Europe: The Stromboli.
The actual sound library contains 73 sound recordings for a size of 2.6 GB.
Eruptions were recording mainly from three distances:
• at 200m of altitude and 1,3km distance from cratere
• at 400m of altitude and 1km distance from cratere
• at 850m of altitude and 500m distance from cratere
I stayed here one month to manage to have the most diversified eruptions that offer Iddu the volcano. A friend who accompanied me did beautiful shoots with cameras and drone. You can have a look to the video. This project brought us to another one, that’s coming up in the next months, a type of documentary about the whole island and his inhabitants.
So in the future I will add more sounds of Stromboli, the city, the people, the sea, the animals, the ambient etc… that you could listen and download for free on my website.
I wanted this sound library focused on the eruptions, but I put also a few recording of the waves and water because they sound particularly strong and they suggest the volcano’s sound: All the island is little made of “fresh” lava’s rock, that make every impact very resonant in the bass frequencies.
This library contains also a few ambient of the island, his city and his surrounding nature. And some roomtone corresponding to the place where I recorded the eruptions.
All recording made with the Nagra VI. Neumann mics, audio technica MS and Micromix amp for some specifics recording.

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.
