  • Drones & Moods 100 Fans, HVAC, & Mechanical Drones Play Track 124+ sounds included, 104 mins total $46.80 incl. vat

    Articulated presents here a careful collection of 100 Electric Fans, HVAC, AHU, and Mechanical Drones. After months of capture, we recorded, selected, and edited this unique library featuring rich, varied, and useful assets ready-to-use for any game or movie project.

    These sounds can serve to inspire life inside environments, provide industrial tones, domestic houses, or back alleys, setting moods or atmospheres. They can also serve as elements to design mechanical machine or engine sounds.

    The sonic quality extends a large spectrum from clean, modern, to old and rusty, on rooftop, indoor, flush ceiling-mounted, Bathroom extractor, or floor stand; along with many flavours like metal, plastic, smooth or raspy rattles with gurgling wobbles. Some of the Sounds have useful varied point of perspectives (Close-up, distance), and most of them are ‘loopable’.

    WHAT’S INSIDE:
    124 stereo files
    Highly focused and meticulously edited sounds
    Wide variety
    Different perspectives are included as well

  • Mechanical 20th Century Cameras Play Track 3900+ sounds included $240 incl. vat

    Discover the obscure sounds of 24 film cameras designed between the 1930s and 1970s. Carefully organised into 159 files, the 20th Century Cameras library offers over 3900+ sounds recorded at pristine 24bit/96kHz, thus allowing you to not only use the mechanical sounds of the cameras for their intended purpose, but also for sound design.

    In order to help you navigate through the plethora of sounds available, rich SoundMiner metadata has been carefully crafted in order to describe the sounds as simply as possible, using multiple keywords and terms, where needed.

    The library contains mostly mechanical sounds, such as the sound of shutter release at different shutter speeds, knobs, latches, wheels, and more, in addition to some Foley sounds as well.  Due to the age of the cameras, most of the shutter release sounds have slight variations between them, even at the same shutter speed.

    An update for the library is on its way, which will include the sound of a few different types of camera film being unwrapped, handled and installed into cameras. The update will be free for the people that have already purchased the library.

    The library also comes with a free eBook which can be viewed and downloaded here.

    In addition to the SoundMiner metadata sheet down below, the eBook provides information as to how older cameras work, and more details as to how each of the cameras recorded for the library work. The book goes into a fair bit of detail as to what sounds each camera offers, without getting too technical.

    If you have any questions about this library, feel free to quickly send me an e-mail. I tend to reply within minutes.

  • Mechanical 3D Printer Play Track 380+ sounds included, 37+ mins total $30 incl. vat

    Do you want to make a robot or some other mechanical object sound unique? Or do you need high class heavy mechanical motor or servo sounds for layering purposes?

    The 3D Printer library is a collection of high quality motor, servo and mechanical movement sounds that can help you make a nice looking robot sound like a mean killing machine. The library is also a great and affordable way to add uniqueness to your sound effects.

    The library was recorded with two sets of microphones: A stereo pair of JrF C-series contact microphones were used to capture the more delicate inner sounds of the printer while a stereo pair of Sennheiser MKH8040 microphones recorded the more raw outer sound of the mechanical motor movements.

    You get the sounds in two formats: 96 KHz 24 bit and in 44.1 KHz 16 bit, for more convenient ways of utilizing the sounds in games and other media.

  • Mechanical 3D Printer (NSL) Play Track 209+ sounds included $54 incl. vat

    Get the sounds of a Printrbot 3D printer – with four NEMA 14 stepper motors -, in this interesting SFX library by New Sound Lab.

    The high torque motors connected to a pulley system control the X-Y-Z movements of the aluminum extruder and metal print bed. When printing three-dimensional objects, these fast and precise movements result in a unique barrage of percussive and rhythmic mechanical noise.

    These sounds were captured using three different recording setups: Barcus Berry contact mics, RF coils, and combined contact mic / RF coil into a Sound Devices 702 recorder.

    The resulting sounds are a mix of grainy, gritty atonal patterns, robotic percussive bleeps, glitchy digital beeps/clicks, low fidelity drones, and chaotic noise. Both raw recordings, and processed elements are included and ready for further sound manipulation.

  • Hum, Buzz & Glitches 3Dimensional Printing Play Track 95+ sounds included $58.80 incl. vat

    3Dimensional Printing is the multicolored result of different recording sessions of a couple of 3D printers (the Sharebot NG – Next Generation and the DeltaWASP 20 40) at Fabb and at FabLab Milan between 2014 and 2015.
    All the sounds were recorded directly as uncompressed .wav files through both a RME Fireface UCX and a Zoom H6 Portable Recorder.
    Duration ranges vary from 1 to 5 minutes, with the most sonically interesting excerpts from full printing cycles. Lots of pattern and sequences are available for selection and transformation.
    Five different transducers were chosen to capture all the sonic details of these mechanisms:
    – C-SERIES pro contact microphones, hand-made by Jez Riley French;
    – Barcus Berry 4000 Planar Wave System (Piezo crystal sensor+4000XL Piezo Preamp);
    – Piezo Film Tab Contact Microphones by Cold Gold Audio;
    – Custom Induction Coil Pick-up (also used to create the Unseen Noises collection);
    Zoom MSH-6 MS Capsule (the stereo image of the Mid-Side recordings is rendered as balanced stereo LR files).

    The Ambisonic Airplanes Cessna 172 library, is a small library procured from a single short flight.  The recordings were made from the rear passenger seat positioned as close as possible to the middle of the aircraft.  The front of the Ambisonic microphone faced the cockpit.  The flight was recorded in it’s entirety and edited down for easier use.

    Types of recordings include idling, flying, flying with windows open, taxiing, taxiing with windows open, engine turning on, engine turning off, plane during takeoff, plane during landing, plane engine test (1700 RPM test) and more.

    The library was recorded using a Sennheiser Ambeo VR Microphone onto a Sound Devices MixPre 6.  The library has a fairly large size because we have conveniently provided 4 versions of the same files to make it easier and more flexible to use.  Included you will find B-Format wav files (FuMa and AmbiX) A-Format raw wav files and a Binaural stereo mix down.  The library includes a total of 17 unique files and 68 total files.

     

    Information on the Cessna 172 from Wikipedia:The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is an American four-seat, single-engine, high wing, fixed-wing aircraft made by the Cessna Aircraft Company.  First flown in 1955, more 172s have been built than any other aircraft.

    Measured by its longevity and popularity, the Cessna 172 is the most successful aircraft in history. Cessna delivered the first production model in 1956 and as of 2015, the company and its partners had built more than 44,000.  The aircraft remains in production today.

  • Foley Analogue Rotary Telephone Play Track 65+ sounds included $24 incl. vat

    This collection started as a mic test and turned into a library. What is unique about the collection is that the phone was taken apart so you get each individual element as clean as possible. It was recorded with shotgun mics, a TLM 103 to see how it sounded with something other than dialogue, and a Cold Gold contact mic at 96 khz, which was the biggest surprise as it sounds like a high definition retro mic when placed on the back of the phone's rotary dial. Skip the antique hunt and listen to these vintage sounds.

  • Mechanical Anarchy Play Track 105+ sounds included, 49 mins total $33.60 incl. vat

    The booming and serrated voice of a 100th anniversary edition American classic is upon you. And this Fat Boy had quite a lot to say. Mostly in a dialect of deliciously loud and explosive transients.

    You'll find that this library not only covers glorious engine dynamics and potato-y straight pipes, but also various switches, mechanics, linkages, electrical functions, the horn, and even a guardian bell. There are pass-bys and encircled recordings in both mono and MS formats (the latter of which are left raw for you to decode at gain and width settings appropriate to your needs), static running captures, and a structure of engine throttling that can give you delicate control over the engine's power.
