We did recordings of interferences, hums, buzzs, dc noise and statics, using an electromagnetic sensor as microphone.
All recordings have been imported into Serum Noise Oscillator and Wavetable Oscillators to achieve a collection of organic sounding presets.
Welcome to “Shevannai, the Voice of Elves” !
A perfect tool for composers and sound designers to create ambiences and music for films, documentaries, video games and new age music. Unparalleled realism… Pure inspiration
Shevannai is a beautiful solo vocal library aiming for easily creating your own ultra-realistic melodies, without using any phrases. Thanks to over 4000 carefully recorded and wisely programmed samples by Eduardo Tarilonte, handling the 5 true legato types and 33 words, is intuitively easy.
Minimum Free Kontakt Player or Full Kontakt Version 5.8.1 required.
Signal Return is a performable Kontakt instrument and soundset designed to create a wide variety of interesting and textured sounds.
All of the source material comes from recordings of various devices feeding back into themselves either electrically or acoustically. No software based speaker emulators or distortions were used in the creation of these sounds. Comes with 250 .wav files – more than 2 hours of recordings + 22 Kontakt instruments (these require the full version of NI Kontakt 5.0 or higher).
Originally developed for FabFilter One, Simplon’s filters were designed from the ground up to be the fattest and smoothest self-oscillating digital filters possible. Simplon’s filters sound raw but never cheap or ‘digital’, even at full resonance.
Each filter offers three different filter characteristics that define the unique sound and overdrive of the filter. They range from smooth filters with moderate overdrive to raw, self-oscillating over-the-top madness!
In combination with the response and slope settings, FabFilter Simplon offers up to 27 different filter types.
Tweak the filters with Simplon’s large interactive filter display that shows both filter curves and lets you drag them around. You can adjust the filters separately or both at the same time.
And of course, you get all the usual FabFilter goodies: perfectly fine-tuned knobs that work both in vertical and circular drag modes, interactive MIDI Learn, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, great presets, extensive help file with interactive help hints, sample accurate automation for all parameters, AltiVec and SSE optimization, and much more.
Sirens wail! Russian Authentic police, fire brigade, and ambulance siren systems, captured and catalogued for media production use. The recordings were made at distances ranging from 1.5 to 5 meters. Each siren has several subtypes of sound. For all of life’s emergencies, within are the sounds that signal. Neumann U87 microphones were used for the recordings.
Whether it’s the sound of a steak being placed on a red hot barbecue, the spitting of oil from a boiling pan to the cracking of a fire, this library features an assortment of sizzling sounds.
Works great with Reformer Pro but if you don’t own the plugin, you can still purchase and use the sounds in this pack separately.
The library is the collection of atmosphere recordings in the city of Belgrade during the winter months. It’s a gathering of 29 ambisonic atmospheres recorded at many different places in Belgrade. There are atmospheres from famous places in Belgrade, parks, busy streets, traffic, underground passages, pedestrian streets, atmospheres on Ada Isle, below and on the Ada bridge, Ada Lake, two rivers Sava and Danube.
All atmospheres are recorded at 96kHz/24Bit with condenser ambisonic microphone Rode NTSF1 and Zoom F8, in FuMa format.
You can convert ambisonic FuMa format in real time with free SoundField plugin to stereo, 5.1, 7.1, 7.1.4, or any other surround format. You can also change the panoramic view of the sound because they are 360 degrees recordings, as well as automate the panoramic perspective.
All recordings have metadata.

HOW SOUNDWEAVER HELPS YOUR WORKFLOW
MORE VARIETY ON TIGHT SCHEDULES
We all know the situation: A client has asked for 100 new sound assets, 10 variations each, delivered as soon as possible.
Creating variations in particular requires a lot of meticulous pitching, shifting and switching out elements within your original design.
With just a few commands, SoundWeaver will automate all of those time-consuming steps for you and generate as many suggestions as you like – so all that’s left for you to do is have a quick listen and keep the ones you like best.
Focus on your creative process while SoundWeaver takes care of the rest.
INSPIRATION THROUGH NEW COMBINATIONS
Speaking of creative process: Once your library has grown beyond a certain point, there is only so much experimenting you can do manually. SoundWeaver’s powerful Randomize feature often generates combinations we’d never think of trying in the first place.
This opens up a world of new possibilities and is a great way of starting a project.
Already have an idea? Tell SoundWeaver to build on it and create different flavors.
Starting empty-handed? Let SoundWeaver set up your session by putting all layers in place.
Done, but missing that special something? Try out more unlikely sounds with just a few clicks.

Here a library of one of the most active volcano in Europe: The Stromboli.
The actual sound library contains 73 sound recordings for a size of 2.6 GB.
Eruptions were recording mainly from three distances:
• at 200m of altitude and 1,3km distance from cratere
• at 400m of altitude and 1km distance from cratere
• at 850m of altitude and 500m distance from cratere
I stayed here one month to manage to have the most diversified eruptions that offer Iddu the volcano. A friend who accompanied me did beautiful shoots with cameras and drone. You can have a look to the video. This project brought us to another one, that’s coming up in the next months, a type of documentary about the whole island and his inhabitants.
So in the future I will add more sounds of Stromboli, the city, the people, the sea, the animals, the ambient etc… that you could listen and download for free on my website.
I wanted this sound library focused on the eruptions, but I put also a few recording of the waves and water because they sound particularly strong and they suggest the volcano’s sound: All the island is little made of “fresh” lava’s rock, that make every impact very resonant in the bass frequencies.
This library contains also a few ambient of the island, his city and his surrounding nature. And some roomtone corresponding to the place where I recorded the eruptions.
All recording made with the Nagra VI. Neumann mics, audio technica MS and Micromix amp for some specifics recording.
An in-depth collection of subway recordings, captured in Kyiv, Ukraine. There are platform ambiences, train interior and exterior, escalators, underground tunnels with people.
Recorded in quadro on Nevaton MC 50 QUAD; in double-MS on Oktava MK-012 set; in stereo on AKG C414 pair. The double-MS recordings were encoded to quadro and the sources (Mid, Side, Rear) included as well.
DMS at the end of file name means Double-MS recording; Quadro means direct quadro recording; AKG means stereo recording.
“Summer in the fields – Crickets and cicadas” is the right Library if you are trying to create a natural sound scenario during the summer.
The library contains over 8.4 GB which exceeds 1.43 hours and a total of 30 files of high-quality material in discrete 5.0 surround format.
Atmospheres ready to be combined with other elements to create the right sound for the image you are working on.
The Library was built in Europe – Italy, in the Lazio countryside. Between the end of May and the beginning of September and the sultry heat is audible in the recordings.
The squealing of cicadas is a fundamental sound element to design the sound of a warm and dry outdoor environment.
At night the crickets are beautiful.
Each place has its crickets that emit sounds at different rates and frequencies.
Agitated, calm, psychedelic, relaxing …
Crickets are a fundamental element to create an emotional night scene.
Other animals are obviously present in the recordings; morning birds, owls, crows, geese, insects and bees, chickens, etc.
The registered natural fields are near lakes, rivers, chicken coops/farms, country houses, woods and cultivated fields.
The large part of the files have not human elements like traffic or agricular sounds, other ones have some distant traffic and are pretty for contemporary countryside.

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.
