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’.
124 stereo files
Highly focused and meticulously edited sounds
Different perspectives are included as well
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.
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 would like to hear more, here is a slightly extended version of the video preview:
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.
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.
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).

Clicky and rolling metallic sounds from an old metallic Sweda cash register from the 1970s + a bonus Kontakt MIDI instrument.
Great source material for designing all sorts of odd mechanical insects, robot or machine movement, mechanical UI buttons or just actual cash registers in shopping scenes. ~270 sounds in 165 files.
We recorded the cash register with high quality microphones from multiple perspectives – even with a lavalier microphone hidden inside the machine for super dry mechanical sounds and contact microphone attached to the back for beefy low end that can be mixed in to make your sounds feel heavier. We even added punchy ready-to-use detailed mixes of all the microphones. Recorded in a professional noise free recording studio, giving you the complete freedom to shape the sounds as you please
We experimented to explore all the sonic gems hiding in the machine. You’ll find sounds of the electric number indicators rolling when pressing the payment button, creepy click-clacky insect-like movements, thin metallic movements and impacts and foley sounds from touching and handling the cash registers.
The library has been tagged with extensive metadata and has been tested in Soundminer, Basehead, Soundly and Pro Sound Effects’ Search to make it easy to find the sounds you are looking for.

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.
Amusement Rides & Ambiences is a unique collection of hard to access amusement park sound effects. Package includes high-quality multichannel recordings captured with a full access to the amusement rides – and a total of 8 rides are included!

This library features recordings of a Moog analog synthesizer. The sounds range from raw lo-fi zaps, buzzes and glitches, to more futuristic high-tech robot movements, morphs, vocalizations and drones.
Both source recordings, and designed sound effects are included for further sound manipulation.
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.

This Hard Drive SFX library delivers the sounds of severely mistreated hard drives. We hit hard drives with hammers, drilled holes in them, bent them and inserted objects into them before turning them on. Power ups, shut downs, grinding, screeching, whines, and rattling are just a few of the sounds you’ll find here. Great source material for sound design and heavy processing.
A killer antique accordion full of paper crinkles, key clacks, sick sounding wheezes and old wood creaks. The antique accordion was rescued from a local antique shop. It has a hole in the bellows that creates a distinct wheezing sound, and it is loaded up with strange squeaks, pops and paper textures.
We rolled on this instrument for about an hour, and did everything from flicking the keys to dropping and pounding it. The accordion took some abuse, but in the end what it gave back was a wealth of old sounding textures you can’t fake.
This instrument was recorded at 24 bit 96k, in dual mono – with an AT4050 for a wide perspective and a Schoeps CMC6.MK4 for a close perspective. Comes with 57 .wav files and 19 Kontakt .nki files (the .nki files require the full retail version of NI Kontakt 4.2.3 or later)
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!
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.
