Are you looking for a dark-sounding user interface sound library? Something that calls back to movies like Prometheus or Oblivion? Then look no further. This library is made for sci-fi films and games, with its futuristic loops, drones, transitions, buttons, glitches and plenty more. These are the sounds that can flesh out the advanced technology in your spacecraft's cabin as it wanders deep in the outer limits of the universe.
Databending: A digital art form where flaws in digital systems are exploited and used for creative purposes.
Data Disruption contains 200 sounds sourced from raw computer files which have been interpreted as audio data. Bitmaps, executables, plugin files and more have been exploited to bring you a unique, varied collection of sound effects and atmospheres ready for a range of productions.
This sound collection has 100 'raw' files which include harsh, random data noises, intense drones and a versatile selection of glitch one shots as well as 100 processed sounds which were subject to extreme editing and mangling to deliver an array of abstract sonic artefacts.
Most useful for scenarios where computer technology – known or otherwise – is glitching out, these sounds are best suited to Science Fiction productions which call for the noise of broken communications, signal failures, ailing machines, industrial settings, planetary ambience and dystopian soundworlds.
That's not to say they won't also come in handy for Glitch/IDM music producers looking to build up an original collection of sounds for their latest kit, or for the creative sound designer to further shape these sounds into anything from user interface clicks, blips and bleeps to surreal soundscapes and beyond.
Data Processing is a sound effects library that emulates the movement of data and adds digital texture to your sound design.
Use these effects as building blocks to build digital, robotic, harsh, abstract and glitchy sound design or music. Also great as user interface elements.
We recorded and designed data transfer from 5G, WIFI, Solid State Drives, USB-C and more, as well as using analogue synthesizers, guitar pedals and raw data files to enhance the library.
‘Data Transfer’ is a collection of 52 designed analog and digital sounds that characterise the sound of data being transferred.
All files are 1 minute or longer in duration and are metatagged.
Designed Circuits captures the essence of electric circuits and transforms them into something new. It features special sound effects, ambiences, glitches, drones, and more, that range from heavily designed to basic elements.
Recorded with a LOM Elektrosluch 3+, designed with various fx tools.
Created in collaboration with sound designer Will Organ.
272 24bit/96kHz WAV files / Meta-tagged

Digital Dust delivers 128 tracks of pure digital bit-crushing distortion, deep atmospheric drones, and ear-piercing interface sounds.
Digital Dust is not your usual clean and modern computer command sound effects library. All sounds have been designed from real world electrical or organic recorded sounds.
Granulated, stretched, pitched and mangled in endless chains of plugins and hardware, for very different and almost apocalyptic kinds of rogue computer command sounds. The samples can easily be stretched or processed even more, for even weirder sound fx.
This comprehensive sound collection contains all sound effects made by The Sound Pack Tree. It includes 8,533 diverse sounds from a large variety of categories such as:
All sound files have been edited carefully to be as useful as possible in post production and game audio workflows. Wherever applicable, sounds are seamless loopable. All sounds have clear, catchy file names and rich metadata keywords. The duration of this library is 33 hours while all files have been edited to a meaningful, non-exaggerating length.
Two versions are included in your download – you can either choose one or download both of them:
The audio content of both versions is 100% identical.
All files from all 15 sound libraries yet released by The Sound Pack Tree are included – and additionally, more than 3,000 various sound FX.
This one-folder library is made for quick & easy use, not for endless searching. You will find common sounds as well as tons of rarities and practical material, so this sound library serves the novice as well as the established sound designer.
Industrial, heart-stopping and threatening loops featuring evacuation alarms, hazard alerts, big heart-stopping whams, military threat sirens, security breach warnings, emergency calls, and distress signals. Each piece of sound design features five different variations (A, B, C, D, and E) each with its own unique flavor and stylistic approach which allows the user to cover a wider range of professional work by adapting his/her favorite samples to the needs of a particular project.
We came across an old Sanyo Cash register which was still working – so we went all-in and recorded it. We used two Sennheiser MKH8040 and a DPA 4060 to get a variety of buttons, switches, and printing noises. They all cover different and unique perspectives.
When you need Electric Typewriters Sounds, this composite SFX collection of 4 and half (yes half, one machine was broken) (old) electric typewriters delivers. You will find sounds ranging from opening/closing covers, pressing keys, random typing, electric motor movements of the writing head, mechanic-hammering of the letters, small mechanical levers and more.
Of course the sounds can be used for interfaces (and, well, electric typewriters!) – but they could also easily be mangled and mutilated for some great robotic and futuristic stuff. Try it yourself. All sounds were recorded with a Sennheiser MKH8050 through a UA Apollo 8 and a RODE NTG-3 through a Sound Devices 744T. All sounds are royalty free.

The Floppy Drives sound effects library features recordings of seven computer disk drives: two 3.5″ floppy drives, one 5.25″ floppy drive, three Zip drives, and one SuperDisk drive.
All drives were taken apart to access and manipulate the stepper/eject motors to create unique sounds. These range from electronic percussive bleeps and glitchy noises, to electromechanical motor movements.
An Arduino UNO microcontroller board was connected to one of the 3.5″ floppy drives, allowing precise control of the drive's stepper motor via custom software code. A midi keyboard was interfaced to the system, giving the ability to control the back-and-forth movement of the read/write heads via notes on the keyboard. This essentially turned the drive into an instrument, producing a new set of sounds not existing in the drive's normal functions.
This library was created to provide designers with drag and drop sounds for sweeps, fades, surges, swells, and other embellishments. Each of the sounds in this collection were designed to be used to heighten events, but they can be mashed, stacked, and chopped to create all sorts of eclectic designs. There are plays on musical concepts as well as thematic events, with each sound purposefully building up, culminating in a peak moment, and then dissipating in some way. They are organized into 100 families (designs) with 5 variations each, ranging wildly in topic, movement, duration, dynamics, attack, release, loudness, density, and speed. Some are natural and organic while others are completely rigid and synthetic (and some fall variably in between).
If you need to festoon the heck out of a scene or event in your project…If you need some complex SFX designs craftily layered and ready-to-go…If you need a diverse set of easy-to-tweak, overflowing sonic enrichment, then look no further. You've found it.

Each hard drive was opened up, manipulated, and ultimately destroyed to create a collection of raw, abstract and unique sounds. Found materials such as metal, cardboard, plastic, and tools were used to control the hard drive's motor, platter, and head actuator. These sounds work especially well for creating the sounds of mechanical robot movements, electric motors, and futuristic machinery.
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.
A Sound Effect is an excellent resource for us to keep our animated films sounding unique and exciting.
A Sound Effect is a great asset to have discovered.
We found the site very easy to navigate, purchasing and downloads were effortless and the effects themselves are awesome! Asbjoern has done us all a great service.
We’ll definitely be back!
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.
