Materials & Texture

Sound effects and recordings of various surfaces, textures, objects and elements – soft, hard, organic, wooden, stone, metallic and lots more

  • • In Bowed Cactus 2, get massive cacti covered with menacing 4 to 6 inch spikes. Take a violin bow to these long spines and hear guttural screeches with stuttering bass and grit. Hear wobbling bass as long needles are plucked and clear musical pitches pinging. Hear thick, bowed spines performed to sound like large mammals and whistling whines only the grit of a cactus needle can create.
    • This library offers you an extension to Bowed Cactus 1. Use both libraries together to create otherworldly creatures brimming with ultrasonic energy.

    2% FOR THE ENVIRONMENT & CARBON NEUTRAL:
    • Two percent of the price of this library is donated to an environmental cause, as an “artist royalty” for the planet!

    HOW IS BOWED CACTUS 2 DIFFERENT THAN BOWED CACTUS 1?

    • New cactus species: Ferocactus (barrel cactus) and Stetsonia Coryne (toothpick cactus)
    • Much larger cacti
    • 4-6 inch cactus spines vs. 1-2 inches in Bowed Cactus 1.
    • Longer spine lengths = more bass
    • Longer spine lengths = more variety in plucked pitches
    • Recorded with a Sennheiser MKH8040/MKH30 MS pair vs. an MKH50/30 MS pair in Bowed Cactus 1.

  • Want to make your visual effects breakdown stand out?

    BREAKDOWN ELEMENTS – a bold collection of sound effects for visual effects breakdowns.

    Our mission was to create a unique and easy-to-use selection of sound effects that takes an entirely different approach to cliche synthesized sci-fi sound effects.

    The majority of elements have originated from organic field recordings which have been elegantly manipulated into a wild new form. This gives the sounds a natural, physical vibe to them – a style that we are certain you’ll love.

    The collection is structured into eight categories: BED, BUILD, IMPACT, INTERFERENCE, REWIND, RISER, TRANSITION and WHOOSH. Each element has been designed to work both by itself or layered to produce more complex textures. Additionally, each element has 4-6 variations to maximise versatility.

    All sounds are royalty free and equipped with comprehensive Soundminer metadata for rapid access.

    We are extremely proud of this collection and we hope you will enjoy using the sounds. Your ears won’t be able to believe their ears!

  • Vehicles Chain Ferry Play Track 17+ sounds included, 56 mins total $29

    Chain Ferry features the remarkable sounds of a 100 year old ferry with a specific drive system. The ferry pulls along a strong chain lying at the ground of the river to cross. This is achieved by a clever combination of 3 drive wheels that guide the chain and prevent it from dropping to the ground.

    The Library contains several complete audio takes of the ferry in action – from departure to arrival. This encompasses engine start, engine idle, loading ramp noises and bangs plus a lot of chain rattling from various perspectives. The sounds are recorded aboard and from both sides of the river so that the entire scenery can be covered acoustically.
