This library is a collection of 60 Sci-Fi atmospheres, all loop seamlessly, which can be used to represent alien worlds, drones ambiences, spacecrafts, futuristic engines, nuclear facilities, celestial spaces, generators, dark elements and from outer space. Mainly inspired by the Alien saga.
Each file has a duration of one minute with subtle changes over time. Ideal sounds to use as a layer in your sound design or for those project where music and sound design are pretty close.
Files have been designed on the basis of two different TVs buzzing, making a total of 32 buzz files, which have also been included in the collection. Calibrated to -24 LUFS. You can experiment with them to create more sounds, or use them as what they are, a TV buzz.
All files come in 96 kHz/24 bit, with a very descriptive metadata, based on what the sounds represent and which kind of feeling and mood they suggest to the listener.
Soundcloud preview includes all the designed sounds.
Sci-Fi Electric is a collection of sparks, static, drones, hums, zaps and textures! The library features 64 files with over 80 audio clips. Here you’ll find a wealth of processed sounds for your Sci Fi adventure. Source material ranges from beard scratching to lap steel pickup interference.
Through processing they end up as “alienistic” textures, sparks, static, drones, hums, zaps, ambiences, and whatever else your imagination can come up with! Other sounds include raw microphone feedback, streetlight buzz, and electrical static.
The source material ranged from beard scratching to lap steel pickup interference… This one was fun to make, and it will be even more fun for you to play with!

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.
Torsion is 100% royalty free – single user license.
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)

Welcome to the sonic world of electromagnetic fields – sounds that are everywhere but rarely heard!
This library consists of a collection of 82 sounds, with each sound ranging from 6 seconds in length up to almost 7 minutes, exploring the buzzing, clicking, and general weirdness that is found to be emitted in the electromagnetic fields of 21 devices. These include a washing machine, guitar effects pedal, Ford Focus, and a factory Security System.
These recordings range from a variety of straight buzzes and hums to sounds the morph and change over time. They are be great for something as simple as adding a hum to a refrigerator, to creating more complex soundscapes for your sci-fi projects, or to use as samples for music. This collection has been put together using little-to-no processing so as to give you sounds that can be manipulated however you may need.
This sound collection contains 119 abstract ambiences, most of them as seamless loopable files. Their moods range from deep mysterious over science-fiction to chaotic glitches and weird noise.
Additionally, the Shepard Ambiences' 2×44 files are included.
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
This is a special assortment of design fragments from Eiravaein Works. Libraries in the Vaeyan series will be produced over time as new assorted concepts are explored and designed. A welcome addition of flavor for any sound designer's archive!
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.
