200 sounds from no-input mixer recording sessions featuring cable & pedal noise, drones, harsh noisescapes, high frequency feedback, hum, interference, low frequency noise atmospheres, machines gone wild and a multitude of general feedback effects.
For inventive navigation tones, future technology sounds, glitch elements, horror atmospheres, corrupted audio flows and more, this original sound collection will serve as a versatile palette for sound designers/editors/artists, music producers and anyone looking for interesting audio artefacts.
All files are 24 Bit/96 kHz with embedded metadata.
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.
I have recorded 6 different fluorescent bulb lamps in an industrial warehouse with two close mic'd dpa 4060 in each that I then edited into 30 stereo files (about 5 takes of each with different lengths). Excellent for all of your warehouse, slum, industrial sound and ambience needs. Check out the video, or email before buying if you feel like it! Enjoy.
Fringe Elements is an aggressive sample pack of divergent and destructive sounds designed for musicians and sound designers in need of a hard-hitting sound pallet on the periphery of normal. Each sound was built in the modular world and heavily processed through DSP algorithms to create structurally unique outcomes and ultimately highly usable samples.
Contained in this collection are 225 unique sounds designed as FX, rhythmic elements, evolving textures, noise, distortion, spectral atmospheres and other elements perfect as building blocks to new music and sound projects or to be layered into existing work to add weight, depth and dimension.
The Boom, Crackle and Scream library is the first in a planned series of Glitch Factory mini libraries. This library uses sounds recorded of Fireworks ranging from large booms to small sparklers and mangles them into interesting textures in varying degrees.
The sounds have been manipulated using analog synthesizers, custom Reaktor instruments and other types of granular processing. They will work well for Sci-Fi weapon layers, user interface sounds and more.
THE GLITCH sound library brings you highly twisted, glitchy, twitchy, gritty, grimy audio madness perfect for various music genres like dubstep, EDM, IDM, hardcore, darkcore, electro-industrial, hardstyle, glitch hop, downtempo, drum‘n’bass, hybrid cinematic music, but also very useful sonic tool for sound designers, editors, and pretty much anyone who likes to play and try different things with sound!
These warped and mangled glitch sounds always work great as a source of inspiration and new ideas as they tend to induce more experimental approach to music making, thus helping in achieving unexpectedly creative and original results. A must have for every producer, musician or sound designer, these glitch sound effects will instantly find a way into your production and bring some serious edge to it!
THE GLITCH sound library contains 331MB (340 sound effects) of high definition 24bit/96khz Stereo WAV files, embedded with metadata to speed up your workflow.

Contains sounds which will work for all your user interface feedback needs, from retro computer interfaces to modern tablets to futuristic sci-fi UIs.
The Handheld Tranceivers library delivers walkie-talkie sound effects from no less than three models: The AEG Voxtel, the Cobra MicroTalk and the Kenwood TK-3107.
It features button sounds, beeps, squelches, feedback sounds, static and white noise sounds, garbled communications and much more. Recorded with a Nevaton MC48 microphone and a Tascam DR70d portable recorder.

Kyma Ambiences [USO003] is the third sound effects bundle created by Matteo Milani.
The generation of these “Artificial Reality Ambiences” starts entirely in Symbolic Sound Kyma from the processing of white and pink noise by filtering – in the time/spectral domains – and convolving these sources with custom FM, additive, formant and granular synthesis. The composition’s resource of sound material is drawn solely from these processed stochastic sound elements: coloured noise is a raw material already full of life and can be sculpted into a variety of temporal forms, movements and textures.
The interaction with Kyma was typical of a composer who explored a device’s potential for sound transformation like a musical instrument. The goal was to obtain an organic and acoustic quality using only a restricted sound source, in order to evoke real spatial characteristics attached to each invented sound.
The “Kyma Ambiences vol.1” sound effects collection is published @ 96kHz (native) – and is also available as dual-layer separated “Elements”, suitable for recombinant stratification, varispeed and spatial positioning in the surround field (for a total of 112 files @ 96kHz).
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!
A Sound Effect is a great resource for keeping up on what's out there in the SFX library world. The site is well organized and it's easy to find stuff.
I love the behind the scenes articles - and the ability to purchase directly through the site is super convenient. The process is very straight forward and painless. I recommend it all the time.
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.
