Introducing part 2 of the ‘Open & Close’ sound effects library. It brings you even more versatile sounds of various things that can be opened and/or closed. Obviously there are again several doors, hatches and drawers – but also lots of other opening and closing sound effects that will come in handy in your everyday sound design work, most with several variations. Be sure to check out the sound list below.
You can use the sounds as they are or use them for intense sound design. All sounds were cleaned, edited and filled with BWF-Metadata for instant use in your projects.

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).
Two induction coil pickups were used to record the electromagnetic fields emitted by the drives, capturing a very unique set of sounds and textures. These range from sharp percussive bleeps, glitchy static and noise, to electromechanical motor sounds, and drones. You'll find use for many applications, including UI interface design, transitions, sci-fi, robot/servo sounds, technology, and computer sound effects.
Recordings include all functions of the DVD drives, e.g. disc loading, reading, writing/burning, spin up/down, errors, and disc ejecting. Also, each drive was taken apart and manipulated to create additional sounds.
From creating the breath of a behemoth, to the palpable aura of an ambiance, this is a plethora of contact mic goodness providing you with frequency-deep content for layering, embellishing, bolstering, and new sound creation.
Contact mics are delicate creatures. They can give you insights into the most excitable yet unheard facets of a soundscape, and then almost immediately get destroyed by the slightest of impacts. We're just going to forget about how many incredible captures were thrown out of the running for this library due to such slight disruptions, and instead focus on the positive: this is a huge collection of super flexible, totally malleable sounds. 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.

KLAP Sound took a piano and tortured it, dismembered it and finally destroyed it—and recorded the whole process. For the making of this library, they used several tools such as hammers, screwdrivers, knives, and saws, as well as props like dirt, send, gravel, forks and other sharp objects. The results are raw sounds of foley with musical rings, harmonic tails and creepy vibes that are dry yet barely edited for your own enjoyment.
Polarity delivers more than 950 sounds of electricity, science and technology – captured in several locations around the world, from electricity museums to science labs. About 50% of the library is all about electricity, with various types of Jacob’s Ladders, Tesla Coils, Ruhmkorff lamp and all sorts of impactful bursts of energy.
Then we go through welders, plasma spheres, 3D printers, starting to cover a more broad technology theme – like old phones, telegraphs, dynamo wheels, rotary dials, whirling watchers, alarm, lab centrifuges, something scientists call a roller and a rocker, servo sounds, neon lights, a wimshurst machine and sparklers.
Many sounds in this section were captured from vintage equipment, from a 1928’s tram to old telephone switchboards, high voltage levers and control surfaces.
All content was recorded at 192KHz with a Sanken CO100K, a couple of Sennheiser 8040 and a Neumann 81i, translating into final assets that have plenty of ultrasonic content, ready for the most extreme manipulation.
This is a collection of recordings of industrial/farming make-and-break engines from the end of the 19th beginning of the 20th century.
It features small clockwork type clinks and clicks, larger gears and pistons, and huge exhaust pipe chugs and blasts.
This power tool sound library will provide you with all kinds of “whizzzz”, “brrrrr” and “Bwoooooo”.
Power Tools is full of top quality recordings of different small motors and rotors, all meticulously recorded in both mono and stereo. Contains bursts, sustained operation, revving up and down, drilling and drags against different material.
Can be used for foley purposes but would also be a cool addition when making sounds for spaceships, sci-fi guns, vehicles, robots and other neat stuff.
Recorded with a Rode Large Diaphragm Condenser (NT1-A) in Mono and Oktava MK 012 in spaced stereo configuration, at 192 kHz, 24 bit.
Print Shop is a SFX & Ambiance pack containing a lot of great material from a big industrial print shop. The Soundcatcher recorded 4 different printing machines, Print Shop Ambiances in ORTF and a lot of really nice subsonic stuff with two contact microphones. As always, all sounds are tagged with Soundminer friendly metadata and the pack comes in 4 different sizes and qualities.
Process Malfunction features 40 intricate future technology glitch production elements for science fiction scenarios where computers are going way out of control. You'll hear corrupt data streams, servers overloading, user interface issues, generative, abstract rhythms and more in this detailed exploration of what the computers of tomorrow may sound like when they go wrong.
Perhaps the mainframe has been compromised from a series of lethal hacker attacks or alien communication signals are interfering with the network, maybe the CPU has just seen better days… Whatever the cause of the failure, the machines have been corrupted and they are struggling, screaming and hanging on for their last bleep…
If you are searching for an expansive range of high-quality projector sounds, look no further! PROJECTOR is a new library that delivers everything from from modern digital projection bleeps and extraction fan sounds, to the iconic intermittent sprocket ticks from classic film projectors.
The PROJECTOR SFX library contains sounds such as: power switches and breakers, buttons and catches, shunts and clunks from many sources including 35mm lens turrets, powering up and down processes, threading up 35mm and 16mm film projectors by experienced projectionists, extraction fans, intermittent sprocket clicks and errors, film handling and splicing, operational projection room ambiences and many more. All audio includes embedded descriptive Metadata.
Props Box sound library is a collection of different sounds emitted by everyday objects used in weird ways. It can be a great and handy tool in designing more complex sound effects for games, or just a go-to pack to quickly fill the gaps in movies and other linear media.
The 169 mono files feature more than 1000 sound effects, as each recording contains different variations of the same activity.
Quadcopter Drone CX10 is a small radio controlled toy with a feisty character that could be described as a robotic version of an angry bee.
This library covers in detail everything you can do with this little neat quadcopter drone. You get sounds of acceleration, deceleration, steady engine fly loops of various speeds, engine revs, fast turns, ground hoppings and takeoffs. In case you need them I also recorded collisions and landings on various surfaces like carpet, metal, rock, plastic etc. Surprisingly these sounds are quite suitable for user interface sounds too.
The steady engine fly loop sounds are really useful when you want to create your own flyby / passby sounds. I can also imagine using this library to add some unique flavour to winged insecty characters in a game or just to richen otherwise bland engine sounds.
The whole library was recorded in 96KHz 24bit quality so these sounds are really flexible if you want to experiment with pitch, stretch and other audio tools.
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.
Gone is the era of the typewriter, when the cacophony of countless typebars striking the platen could be heard emanating from every office building, but with SkewSound’s QWERTY Sound Library, you can recreate those days. We used an electro-mechanical typewriter from the 1970s to create this library.
This allowed us to get some unique sounds that simply can’t be created with an older, mechanical typewriter.
In this library you’ll find some stellar machine gun-like mechanical sounds, impacts, sweeteners, motor hums, and more mechanical switch and button effects than you’ll know what to do with.
• Recorded, edited, and delivered in full 96kHz/24bit high definition audio
• Every performance was multi-mic’d, providing you with a greater range of tonal qualities to modify to your hearts content
• Over 35 minutes of audio
• Fully embedded Soundminer metadata
Another electromechanical-focused library from SkewSound! Our reel2reel Sound Library features a professional tape machine from the 1980s. We captured all the sounds this little (well, actually quite large and heavy) piece of gear could create.
DC motors, servos, tape spinning, metal impacts, and more can be found within this library.
And if you are on the hunt for some huge, analog style mechanical buttons, you should hear what this library has to offer.
Remington Rand is an early American typewriter and adding machine manufacturer formed in 1927. The last Remington Rand branded business machine rolled off the line in 1958. The adding machine that we acquired was an electric version in good working condition. Remington Rand also manufactured things like shavers, pistols and calculators.
Our adding machine has a big electronic mechanism for the summing function and nice heavy clacks for the regular keys. It also had some very sticky metal plates that would occasionally get stuck and then pop loose with a big resonant ringing sound. This specific defect made an incredibly interesting sound that is very unique to this specific machine’s wear and tear.
As with the Burroughs Protectograph we miked it with three different mono perspectives to produce three very different sounds on each move. We used Schoeps CMC6/MK4 mics on the front and back and an AT4050 for the wide perspective in mono. The close perspectives are great for big thick clicks and mechanisms, and the wide is excellent for use in one offs for bgfx tracks.
If you are looking for vacuum sounds here is an entire sound effects library dedicated to a Retro Vacuum Cleaner.
Retro Vacuum by Badlands Sound features over 160 sounds of an old vacuum cleaner. The library includes onboard recordings of the wheels and motor and Pass bys at various speeds including separate files for wheels and motor, ambiances of a person using a vacuum in different spaces with multiple distances, and Foley.
All sounds were recorded with professional equipment including RODE NTG3, and Sound Devices 702t 96k/24bit sounds allow high-quality sound effects and great for sound design.
Robobiotics is an exciting new sound effects collection from The Library by Empty Sea. It delivers 3600+ original sound effects for scifi and robots. We’re talking about almost 3 hours of material here.

It’s been 5 years since the release of our Robotic Lifeforms 1 library, and we just felt we could do more! So we teamed up with an epic team of Sound Designers to create an ultimate follow up to it all with Robotic Lifeforms 2. This is no joke, a library of love and over 4,100 files and 12.5GB!
Using some of the most advanced microphones, Kyma, and synths, we really went all out to bring what we think is the most advanced and modern Robot library ever created. Not only do you get over 2,700 designed sounds, but you also get over 1,300 source audio files recorded in 192 kHz 24Bit with the Sanken c1000 mic, so you can pitch the sounds to infinity to create some stellar new sounds of your own.
In our opinion, this is THE robot library to have in your tool box. We aren’t just saying that because we made it, we are saying it because we believe it to be a fact.
Take Robotic Lifeforms 2 for a ride, and you will be happy to own the most advanced robot library ever made so far!

I also recorded Ultimaker 2 3D-printers – 3 of them running at once, as well as isolated sounds from a single printer. A large Zünd flatbed CNC-cutter was also recorded. All in all, lots of servos and stepper-motors, with lots of whizzing, whirring, clicking and ratcheting for your sound design projects.
Introducing the ultimate roller coaster sound library: Roller Coaster Sound Builder includes high-quality recordings from 5 different roller coasters, from classic steel coasters to aggressive impulse coaster. This huge collection includes clean roller coaster passbys, onboard recordings, and classic roller coaster screams.
Roller coaster pass by sounds were recorded without background noise in an amusement park that was closed to the public. A great amount of natural screams with different intensities is also included, recorded during a regular summer day in the amusement park.
This collection provides unique, hard-to-access source material in high-quality, with a large amount of takes for creative sound design. We worked hard to capture as much useful material as we could when we had full access to the rides. All sounds were recorded in Särkänniemi amusement park, Tampere, Finland. Also available in the special Complete Amusement Park Sound Bundle.

Several months of research and recording has led to this very unique collection. It’s props range from ball bearings to trash cans; magnets to fireworks; water to nuts – all in the realm of rotation.
It contains sounds of things that have never been included in a sound effects library before: The sound of a Euler’s Disk speeding up exponentially fast – the whir and chatter of Hurricane balls spinning to 5000+ RPM – Nuts and quarters zipping and buzzing by in a rumbling balloon – The power of neodymium magnets bending the tones of vibrating glass.
Rubber Stamps: 7 different stamps – 45 files. Great office sounds and mechanical sound design material.
You get self-inking mechanical stamps made of steel or plastic, as well as simple wooden stamps with no moving parts. Models include danish office classics Alpo 40 and 50, which make some very rich mechanical sounds – pitch them down for heavy machine sounds. Lots of interesting mechanical content – good for specifics or as sound design elements.
There's lots of variation in performance here; several different sounds for each stamp.
This sound effects library is a collection of field recordings of freight trains in the San Francisco Bay area with a route along San Jose, Richmond, Oakland, Emeryville, and San Francisco. All the recorded freight trains were old, rusty, and covered in graffiti. When in motion they come alive with very unique sounds such as metal on metal scrapes, heavy thuds, clunking, and screeching noises. All trains were recorded within 15-20 feet from the mic setup of Schoeps 2 CMC 6 U mic bodies, a Schoeps MK4 and MK8 mic capsules, and a Rycote windjammer fed into a Sound Devices 744T.

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!
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.
