  • Electricity ELS Play Track 82 sounds included $45 $22

    ELS is a library that contains electromagnetic field recordings. It features source material ranging from household objects, drones, vehicles and radiology equipment.

    During the recording process, the goal was to find and record sounds that mainly had a distinctive and musical profile rather than simply just noise.

    All of the included content was recorded with a LOM Elektrosluch Mini City at 24bit/ 96khz. The files have only been processed and cleaned to isolate the sounds from other components.

    The designed section contains few different ready to use sounds.

  • The Electromagnetic Field sound library features 216 stereo 96kHz recordings of more than 80 different electronic devices. The total length of the files is 6 hours and 18 minutes. Post production process was limited to EQ and compression with some noise reduction in few cases, but most of the files are ready for further processing and designing completely new sounds

    Everything was recorded in stereo, and in some cases sounds are wildly flying across not only whole frequency spectrum but also pan image. Inside you’ll find a lot of different hum noises, hiss and electrical swipes and whooshes, buzzing high pitch and low pitch sounds, beeps and bleeps, servo and small engines running in a different way, data processing kind of sounds, interference and corruption effects and more. It’s a great all around library when it comes to designing various electronic machinery sound effects.

  • Here are the chaotic, squealing, squelching insides of everyday electronic apparatus, such as cell phones, laptops, MiniDisc (I’m so old) players and battery drills.

    Sounds that drone, sounds that buzz – sounds that go “YipYipYiiiipfffrrrszz…”. No kidding. Recorded with induction coils/telephone pickups or whatever you want to call them, these sounds are excellent sound design material.

    In fact, I couldn’t help “performing” a bit when recording some of them, just to add a little extra movement.

  • 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.
