Rock sound effects
CRACKS is a large exploration of different cracking sound sources – cracking, crunching, breaking and creaking.
I have recorded a number of different materials, designed and processed to create some more aggressive, powerful and ready-to-use sounds. The library contains over 300 sound files – around 2 hours of sounds included in total. Originally recorded at 192 kHz with two Sennheiser MKH8040 and a Sound devices 702, and fully metatagged.
The Crash & Smash sound effects library contains over 1110 sounds of destruction. For this collection I went on a rampage at several junk yards around my hometown, collecting a vast amount of crash sound effects. This one is highly focused more on crashing sounds with all the rumble and debris, giving you hundreds of variations of glass smashes, rolling stones and stone hits, wood breaks and impacts and metal crashes.
As usual the sounds come perfectly cleaned and edited so you can instantly place them in your timeline or design new sounds with it. Of course they also got some EQ and compression treatment but weren’t further “designed”, so you have nice and flexible source material for your own productions.
All sounds come with embedded Soundminer Metadata sorted in subfolders for:• Glass
The “Crash & Smash – Designed” sound effects library contains 350 sounds of destruction.
You get 5 categories (Glass, Metal, Stone, Wood, Plastic) each with 50 edited, layered and designed sounds of destruction and demolition. Additionally you get 100 mixed heavy Crash and Destruction Sounds in 5.0 Surround.
These were fully created and designed in surround not just upmixed. You also get the downmixed versions in 2.0 Stereo.
All sounds were designed from the original Crash & Smash.
You can easily create a vast amount of new crashes by combining, layering and arranging these sounds. Comes with embedded Sound Miner Metadata.
Available in two versions:
Designed Rocks features crumbling and cracking rock sound effects, shattering glitches, evolving textures, and everything in between.
Created in collaboration with field recordist Bryan Hirst.
• 63 24bit / 96kHz WAV files / Meta-tagged (Soundminer)

To build the range and palate of character that we needed for this collection, we transformed community park and green-way bridges into large-scale percussive instruments. We sought out 12 very special bridges in particular locations and sampled many different performances on them to elicit the right sorts of impacts that we were looking for. Each performed impact has 3 layers, 2 mono and 1 stereo, all with different perspectives due to mic placement. These sounds are highly dynamic, containing an artful blend of the locale they were captured in, and can add some very rich color to any explosion, impact, or crushing event in your editing mix. Go ahead and do your best (or worst)!
These sounds can take a beating. Enjoy!
An onslaught of movement and force using various granularities of dirt-like substances. It's all in the name. Dirty, gravelly, and ragged.
In this library you will find a myriad of gritty movement sounds derived from 4 different granularities: Course, Medium, Fine, and Ultrafine. There are sweeps, smears, crushes, scatterings, drops, scrapes, rubs, and more, with multiple variations of each. The assets chain together particularly well so that you can use them to make long continuous runs.
The timbre and dynamics of these sounds lend them to be used for many different designs than just scrapes and scratches, such as movement in snow or sand, powerful bursts, high energy flames, shifting heavy objects, large beast vocalizations (dragons, anyone?), and more. As well, their metadata is organized conveniently to allow you to grab chunks of variations on similar movements and drop them into your favorite audio implementation software for quick assignment to random containers or sequences for an asset or call.
This library will almost always find itself being thrown into a creative media project one way or another. Its full of a particular cornerstone sound that is essential to any sounds designer's toolbox. And with such a variety and versatility to explore, we promise it will serve you well.
Huge Hidden Passages takes you from the depths of the jungle, to the entrance of a temple, and behind the thick walls of a castle to discover a buried pyramid – and beyond. Some of passages will be hidden to your eyes, but we offer you the sonic keys of those closed passages. The library is the final installment in the World Of Secrets series.
An incredible toolbox, issued from a year of recording and sound design. Versatile, dense, pitchable.
All packs contain stereo & mono, 192 / 96 kHz, 24 bit files.
The “Just Stones” sound effects library brings you a huge amount of sounds created with stones. Ranging from impacts, shatters and rolling stones to scrapes, slides, water hits and tickling fine derbis.
All sorted in sub folders and with embedded metadata, and recorded with Sennheiser MKH8050 + MKH30 mix setup in 24Bit and 192kHz, cleaned, edited and downmixed to stereo. Since many of the sounds are quite mono-ish you can download the complete library also as mono files from only the MKH8050 mic.
This sound pack is dedicated to marbles rolling, jumping, falling, colliding & being handled.
Most of these sounds have been recorderd with the Barcus Berry Planar Wave System 4000 contact microphones and the Neumann KM184.

Enjoy this freshly recorded library of Rock n Roll Hits, “Literally”. These Rocks were recorded in the Mountains of Lake Tahoe and the Desert of Palm Springs. Boulders, Crunches and Hits. Recorded in Stereo at 192kHz, 24 bit and Mastered at 96kHz with Embedded Metadata. Enjoy!
The Rock Slides sound effects library includes 57 recordings of various small rock, pebble, and other debris slides.
There were multiple microphone positions used, but the two most common were a stereo microphone placed on the middle of the slope, capturing the slides from left – center – right as they slid down the mountain.
The other was the stereo microphone placed at the bottom of the slope as the rocks traveled down the slope towards the microphone. This captured more of a crescendo with the sound of rocks growing louder as they travel closer to the microphone.
Rock, Brick and Dirt II delivers impact and hit sounds from rocks/stones and bricks. The library contains 135 files of various hits, smashes, drops on the ground and rock crumbling sounds.

The possibilities you have with this library are genuinely endless. You can cover anything from vehicle sound design to landslides and giant boulders to more innovative concepts like drone textures and sci-fi mechanical movements.
Some of the most exciting elements included are large metallic pipes rolling on concrete, tree logs and gravel sloping downwards, a Chinese meditation ball slipping from an aluminum rail, a metal barrel moving on various surfaces, various kid toys rolling on wooden surfaces.
Rummage is a collaborative sound library from SoundBits and Glitchedtones with a focus on unsystematic searches through everyday items.
Created especially for projects calling for careful, hasty or frantic rummaging, these 733 files offer up plenty of variation to cover a wide range of scenarios. Featuring searches through paper, pockets, trash, wallets, retro media, wood, tools, bags, wardrobes, metal and lots more… your movie scene, game environment or even music production in need of some Rummage, is covered, or more appropriately, uncovered!”.
Articulated presents the result of several months investigation in the realm of rustling matters:
A toolkit to create presence, reality but also interesting textures and silences.
Light breeze and heavy wind gusts were recorded on many locations: in forests, near shrubs, tall grass, corn fields, and in streets. Leaves were captured fluttering on branches but also whirling and dancing on the ground.
Great amount of variations: Leaves of all shapes (needles, compound, single, broadleaf, dry, twigs, branches,…), and various materials such as plastic, paper, fabric, dirt were recorded.
All of which through various interactions such as shuffle, shake, rub, brush, hit, fiddle, whip, and whoosh.
• Windy foliage in trees
• leaves dancing on the ground
• plants interactions & movements
• shuffling, shaking, brushing, rubbing, hitting, swooshing
• all kinds of leaves shape and many types of vegetation such as grass, broadleaf branch, reeds, maple twigs, bamboos, needles, dry leaves, twigs, straws
• additional texture that can help extend the sonic palette of rustling noises such as plastics, papers, metals, glass, pebbles, dirt, fabric, leather
Scratches library is a comprehensive library of 700 recordings of scrapes, cuts, scuffs, peelings and rubs. This high-quality collection of versatile sounds will make skin crawl and hairs stand on end.
The idea behind this project was to gather a wide assortment of objects like saws, scissors and chalks, and to record their acoustic interaction with surfaces such as wood, glass, metal, concrete and gravel. We even came to vandalize a few musical instruments (snare drums, oriental percussions, cymbals and more) with hammers and knives in order to capture weird noises and unique musical qualities.
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.

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.
