  • Drones & Moods Metal Atmosphere Play Track 29 sounds included, 120 mins total $65 $55

    Metal Atmosphere is a collection of contact microphone recordings of wire fences vibrating in the wind.

    The library consists of 29 recordings ranging from 1 minute to over 10 minutes in length. These have been recorded by taping JrF contact microphones to wire fences and other structures through which sound travels easily.

    Most of the sounds are made by the wind “playing” the wires as a huge stringed instrument, while a few others are recordings of submerged wooden fences. The tone is generally dark, even menacing, bringing desolate spaces to mind.

    The sounds can be used as backgrounds even if they technically aren’t proper ambiences, as there is a certain degree of similarity between the two channels which creates a fake stereo field. About half of the files also include wind gusts and wind-specific dynamics which renders them easily identifiable as wind sounds, only with extra metal elements added. Additionally there are countless impacts, risers and swells included which can easily be cut out and used as spot effects. All files are recorded and mastered at 24/96 quality which makes them excellent sound design elements ripe for serious processing.

    In total, more than 2 hours of metal atmospheres and resonances from unique sources – tagged with comprehensive metadata.

  • Get the sounds of a Printrbot 3D printer – with four NEMA 14 stepper motors -, in this interesting SFX library by New Sound Lab.

    The high torque motors connected to a pulley system control the X-Y-Z movements of the aluminum extruder and metal print bed. When printing three-dimensional objects, these fast and precise movements result in a unique barrage of percussive and rhythmic mechanical noise.

    These sounds were captured using three different recording setups: Barcus Berry contact mics, RF coils, and combined contact mic / RF coil into a Sound Devices 702 recorder.

    The resulting sounds are a mix of grainy, gritty atonal patterns, robotic percussive bleeps, glitchy digital beeps/clicks, low fidelity drones, and chaotic noise. Both raw recordings, and processed elements are included and ready for further sound manipulation.

  • Electromagnetic informations are invisible and omnipresent. In every city, especially the big ones, an infinite number of electromagnetic waves is hidden: we can’t hear them, but they’re everywhere! Unseen Noises explores the “invisible” noise pollution transducing electromagnetic fields into audio signals with a telephone pickup: it acts like a radio antenna for hum and weird electromagnetic noises.

    We used telephone tap coils that receive electromagnetic signals around us and convert them into audible information to discover invisible and surprising aspects of the environment in which we live in.

    To widen our sound palette, we explored cell phones, tablets, light systems, automated teller machines, wireless communication systems, anti-theft security devices, surveillance cameras, computers, navigation systems, wireless Internet routers, neon advertisings, public transportation networks.

    We just used the system of electromagnetic induction as way of amplifying musical sounds. Our efforts were focused on finding “articulated” behaviours and other musical qualities in them.

    Note that the files contained in “Unseen Noises” are real performances executed on different devices without editing.” – Matteo Milani

  • Torsion is a new dark hi-tech sound library packed with cinematic sound effects, tempo locked synths, stutter-stingers, tonal feedback, signature braams, hits, downers, low end whooshes, vocals, rise-crescendo, reverse and comes with 300+ wav samples and 86 kontakt instruments powered by The Forge engine by Audiority.

    The front panel of torsion features lp-hp resonating filters, adsr stages for both filters and amplitude, dual reverb which is a combination of classic reverb and convolution. This is great to add textures and personalise your sound.

    Effect section include a very aggressive distortion unit,  saturation and punch stages, delay and eq.

    The distortion unit is gritty and very aggressive, combining a british amplifier with a voice-level bitcrusher.

    The saturation unit features the high quality algorithm of kontakt.

    The punch effect is a transient shaper, a kind of compressor used to control the attack and the sustain portion of a sound and which world great for drums, percussions, impacts, guitars, pianos and other sounds with a fast attack.

    On top of that you can find the advanced rhythmic programmer that can work as an arpeggiator, a polyphonic sequencer or a gater.

    Another key features in Torsion is the stack mode-voicing control which increase the number of voices per note played at the same time. On a single key you can play a different number of sounds to create chords of samples for more rich and layered ensembles.

    A analog emulated 4-bands parametric equalizer. Low and high are shelf type, while low mid and high mid are bell type.
    The resonant delay unit combines a delay based tunable resonator and a tempo synced stereo delay.

    Articulated presents here a careful collection of 100 Electric Fans, HVAC, AHU, and Mechanical Drones. After months of capture, we recorded, selected, and edited this unique library featuring rich, varied, and useful assets ready-to-use for any game or movie project.

    These sounds can serve to inspire life inside environments, provide industrial tones, domestic houses, or back alleys, setting moods or atmospheres. They can also serve as elements to design mechanical machine or engine sounds.

    The sonic quality extends a large spectrum from clean, modern, to old and rusty, on rooftop, indoor, flush ceiling-mounted, Bathroom extractor, or floor stand; along with many flavours like metal, plastic, smooth or raspy rattles with gurgling wobbles. Some of the Sounds have useful varied point of perspectives (Close-up, distance), and most of them are ‘loopable’.

    WHAT’S INSIDE:
    124 stereo files
    Highly focused and meticulously edited sounds

  • Transmission apparatus is a construction kit designed to create a broad range of communication sounds, from real to “alien” broadcasting signals.

    The library contains more than 2 GB of data, delivered in 373 files of unique sound material. It’s catalogued in five elements: AM (amplitude modulation), FM (frequency modulation), SSB (single side band – aka ham radio), KYMA (synthesised noises) and VOCAL (unintelligible speeches).

    The first three bands were recorded from the output of different radio receivers at 96 kHz via a Crane Song HEDD (Harmonically Enhanced Digital Device) to add warmth and tube/analog sonic color to the recordings. All the samples have been carefully selected from these recording sessions, with the addition of just a little dsp processing to widen the stereo field.

    The Kyma folder also contains unique audio files entirely synthesised in the SSC Kyma+Paca(rana) environment. A group of SFX called Vocal is the result of “destroyed” dialogues and vocal sources via spectral processing.

    Transmission Apparatus is available in two versions:

    96 kHz .WAV version• Audio Format: Broadcast Wave Files (.wav)
    • Bit Depth: 24-bit Size: 2.49 GB
    • Download size is 1.82 GB (compressed .rar archive)

    • Sample Rate: 96 kHz
    • Bit Depth: 24-bit Size: 1.66 GB
    • Download size is 1.64 GB (compressed .rar archive)

  • Electricity Flourish Play Track 500 sounds included, 54 mins total $33

    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.

  • 3Dimensional Printing is the multicolored result of different recording sessions of a couple of 3D printers (the Sharebot NG – Next Generation and the DeltaWASP 20 40) at Fabb and at FabLab Milan between 2014 and 2015.
    All the sounds were recorded directly as uncompressed .wav files through both a RME Fireface UCX and a Zoom H6 Portable Recorder.
    Duration ranges vary from 1 to 5 minutes, with the most sonically interesting excerpts from full printing cycles. Lots of pattern and sequences are available for selection and transformation.
    Five different transducers were chosen to capture all the sonic details of these mechanisms:
    – C-SERIES pro contact microphones, hand-made by Jez Riley French;
    – Barcus Berry 4000 Planar Wave System (Piezo crystal sensor+4000XL Piezo Preamp);
    – Piezo Film Tab Contact Microphones by Cold Gold Audio;
    – Custom Induction Coil Pick-up (also used to create the Unseen Noises collection);
