Cassette Deck is a set of sounds collected from a small group of analog cassette players. It’s filled with great mechanical buttons and switches, latches, a few motors at different speeds, and multiple microphones/perspectives per take. Great if you’re building some mechanical interfaces!
A collection of buttons and motor sounds recorded from a Sony TCM-939 cassette tape deck.
Useful for UI design, mechanical sound design and all manner of everyday switches. Recorded at 96 kHz these recordings sound amazing pitched down to become big mechanical noises.
Includes transport buttons, motor sounds, tray opens and closes, tapes in and out and the deck in operation from exterior and interior perspectives. Also present are cassette and tape case handling sounds.
Almost all the sounds were recorded using a mono DPA 4060 omni mic at very close range for details and a Sennheiser MKH 40 for a more overall sound.
The miniature size of the DPA 4060s means that there are numerous takes of the machine running recorded from inside the tape tray, which results in amazing close details of the motor and buttons.
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.

From chainsaw motor / engine starts and stops, sawing at different RPMs and durations, idles, different perspectives and distances – and even different engine types.

Whether you’re in need of realistic buttons for a dramatic movie scene, or designing mechanical sounds for the next AAA video game, these clicks are bound to have you covered.

Some of the objects in this library include but are not limited to:
Clock's Volume 2 is the sequel to the small but unique sound library – not recorded from traditional clocks but of edited sounds that tick tock.

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!
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.
