  • Weapons Nocked Play Track 2047+ sounds included $85

    Whether your need to bring a lone rogue to life or a surge of arrows in an epic battle scene, Nocked will provide you with a plethora of flexible content.

    Our largest library to date, this collection is a comprehensive focus on the sounds and functions of the archer and the act of archery. Included are eight recorded bows (2 crossbows, olympic recurve, traditional recurve, longbow, long compound, short compound, and Magyar bow) with 2 additional 'mythic' bows of our own design, each using 3 types of arrows (aluminum, carbon, and bamboo) on 3 varying surfaces (hard, soft, and dirt) from 4 simultaneous recording positions (at bow, at target, midflight mono, and midflight stereo). Each bow and each arrow type have a character all there own.

    The content’s dynamic range is wide, from whispering bamboo arrows gliding on rests as they are drawn to firing position, to the powerful THWACK of crossbow bolts striking their target. All non-firing sounds were recorded in a controlled studio environment while all recordings of the bows being fired were taken on a plot of wide-open rural farmland, encompassed by forests. When needed, this ambient natural environment provided an ideal impulse response to be used in the design and editing of some of the sounds to create a heightened effect.

    Included are a wide array of archery actions and Foley:
    Nocking and unnocking arrows
    Drawing
    Firing (loosing)
    Mid-flight pass-bys
    Releasing / relaxing a draw
    Impacts on targets
    Arrow and accessory Foley (handling, selecting, gathering, dropping, etc.)

    A multitude of takes are provided across each bow/arrow/surface/position combination for easy randomization and differentiation of sounds, or to track any number of unique archers at any given moment.

    Go ahead, let them fight in the shade.

  • Environments Old Cottages Play Track 375 sounds included, 332 mins total From: $136

    The Old Cottages library was recorded in outdoor museums of old cottage houses and in a remote mountain cottage during quiet winter.
    At first, both libraries (Castles and Old Cottages) were planned to create one big old stuff library. But I soon realised that the topic is too wide for one thematic library and sounds recorded in cottages have different character.
    It’s dominated by old creaky wood. And the same as in Castles library, I treated specific ambience of wooden cottages as a part of the sound.

    So again, lots of old wooden doors, with metal bolts. Starting from small to large heavy barn doors, both INT and EXT. Some Background Activities on different kinds of wooden floors, recorded from different POVs, like one floor below, or next door. Some interesting props movements.

    We also performed some of the objects (like doors), creating rhythmic sounds which could work well for any antique rotating, whirling machines.

    We also recorded old machines with gears, which could be very useful for sound design. Using some pitch shifting changes them into another palette of antique sounds.

    Objects and items include:
    Barn door • Bell • Bench • Carriage • Chest • Chimney • Cooker • Curtains • Door • Drawer • Floors, old and creaky • Locker • Old glass • Old wood • Rope maker machine • Staircases • Well • Winch • Windows • Wooden floors • Wooden furniture • Wooden Mechanisms •

    Recording locations include:
    Old Cottages • Old Cottages, upstairs/next-door activity • Staircase / stairwell • Manor • Barn • Mill

    Types of sounds included:
    Doors: 258 files • Window: 10 files • BG Activities: 37 files • Furniture: 10 files • Mechanism: 73 files

    Note:
    You can also get this library along with the Castles library – at a special bundle price. Choose your preferred version below.

  • Mechanical Old Engines Grab Bag Play Track 486 sounds included, 265minutes of multitrack recordings mins total $129

    “Old Engines Grab Bag” is a pack of numerous old, unique and characterful engines from early 1900s. It’s a massive collection of 56GB multitrack 192kHz recordings of old tractors and stationary engines, both diesel and gasoline fueled.

    The intention wasn’t to cover vehicles driving, but to get isolated and very closely recorded mechanical elements of engines and exhaust pipes as a source material for sound design. There are many starts, idles, revs, offs, RPMs variations, backfires etc. Some are heavy and large sounding, some are small and funny. Tractors were captured EXT and most of stationary engines INT, but since they are very closely recorded there is just a little amount of reverb on most of them.

    Most of engines are 1 or 2 cylinders and low horse power and their RPMs are also low. Thanks to this, many of those sounds aren’t tonal and can easily be used as additional layer with other design elements. They work great for adding vintage character, designing junky or funny vehicles, crazy huge steampunk machines or engines malfunction.

    Sounds were recorded using multi-mic setup: Sanken CO-100k (most of the time pointing mechanical parts), Sennheiser MKH-8060 (mainly for isolated exhaust pipe), Schoeps CMC6XT mk41/mk8 (general image) and part also with Trance Audio Inducer contact mics (adding unique mechanical perspective).

    The library is delivered as multitrack 192kHz files, as well as stereo mix of all microphones. Thanks to using microphones with extended frequency range, drastic pitch changes can be applied.
    All files have extensive metadata created in Soundminer, including leg picker with microphone labels.

    Demo files include pitched sounds, which are not delivered with library.

A peculiar garage soundscape is also included. Most of the sounds included are used on a daily basis.

    All these different nuances and hues make this library a worthwhile tool for both film and game sound designers.

  • The Optical Drives sound effects library features recordings of computer optical disc drives (two internal desktop CD/DVD-R and one internal laptop slim CD/DVD-R slot-load).

One of our favorite libraries to make because it satisfied the inner tinkerer's ear, Outward Inversion is our microscope applied to the aural world.

  • Metal Performed Orchestral Percussion Play Track 523+ sounds included, 505 mins total $119

    Sounds for this library were recorded in amazing sounding film scoring studio and performed on orchestral set of top-end Kolberg percussion instruments. The intention was to perform organic sound effects resonated by musical instruments and not regular musical samples.

    Sounds were generated with a few different rubbers, mallets and a bow. They were performed to be used for abstract sound design elements, as well as emotional big creatures vocalizations. You will find there many growls and moans, which can be used for example as designed whale vocalizations.

    Recordings were done on microphones with extended frequency range: Schoeps CMC6XT, Sanken CO-100k and Trance Inducer (which also records up to 50kHz), which makes them ideal source for pitch-shifting.

    Please note: Pitch shifted files in the demo are presented only to show potential of those recordings and aren't included in the library. No additional processing was done on all sounds.
