The Water Volumes SFX library gets you over 300 sounds of natural hot-springs, bubbles, and liquids of various densities boiling under the effect of dry ice.
A large amount of content was recorded during two weeks spent in the city of Furnas, Azores, where volcanic hot-springs of all kinds are active. Other recordings were gathered with the use of dry ice.
Most recordings will contain energy up to 96 KHz as they were recorded with a Sanken CO-100K at a 192KHz sample rate. Others were gathered with the use of an Acquarian H2A, Sennheiser MKH8040, 416, a Sony D100 and a Tascam DR-05.
The collection was recorded over a trip to Sao Miguel, Azores, and several other recording sessions in the UK.
The Audio Hero Western collection features 200 professionally recorded sound effects, ready for use in your productions. Included in this library are guns and pistols, horses, stagecoaches, steam trains, jail cell doors and much more! These sounds are all hand-picked from the Hollywood Edge Burtis Bills' Sounds of the American West sound effects collection.
Sometimes you need that background sound to define the mood: The buzzy insomnia of a flickering light, a lost alien transmission, the lazy spin of a fan above, haunting radio static, the violent rush of air as you free fall into terminal velocity…
With noise sounds recorded from an incredible array of sources, if it goes hum, whir, buzz, or hiss this library has got you covered.
All natural and organic sounding makes this versatile library an outstanding resource for both film and game sound designers.

The ‘Whooshes & Impacts 2 – Elements’ Sound Effects Library features a re-designed and further processed selection of the sound layers from ‘Whooshes & Impacts 2’.
Split into 3 frequency bands, this composite collection brings you production elements to spice up your own whoosh and impact sounds, or easily create new ones from scratch. You have a transition that sounds good but just needs some interesting movement in the low end for that extra weight? Just choose from 1 of 50 low frequency whooshes and layer it with your existing elements.
You get 150 Impacts and 150 Whooshes. The Whooshes come with one variation per sound, giving you a total of 450 design elements for your productions in this library.
You can also get both versions in a bundle – with a great discount.
This library includes a series of cinematic and basic whoosh, movement and transition effects. It also includes a number of impactful drops.
What makes this library unique is the varied amount of content and processing techniques used to create the movement effects. Some effects are created totally organically, others manufactured with analog synths and others creatively processed from nothing other than atonal noise.
Another great quality of these effects is a natural doppler effect is often incorporated. This was done by re-recording some source elements and either moving the source or the mic itself.
A slim library, of 127 sounds – it feels much larger in the amount of varied content that it includes. This library is one I’ve personally used a lot and I’m very happy to bring it to you now!

Extensive humanoid creatures actions, emotions and reactions.
The “Yeti Monster” library is an extensive collection of rare humanoid creature sounds. They were carefully recorded, edited, classified, thoroughly metatagged. It comprises expressive cinematic designed sounds with over 25 different type of articulations, actions and reactions; as well as cartoon-like interpretations.
Ultra High Samplerate
More than 10 real voice actors were recorded for this library. The unique Sanken Co-100K microphone captured an astounding broad frequency spectrum, up to 100KHz. Thus allowing for extra pitching and treatment on the signal while keeping its natural character! The impressive result are authentic realistic ape-like creature sounds which will surely bring an added value to your projects.

A massive electro-acoustic drone SFX library reft from a custom designed and hand-built instrument! These drones were coaxed from a unique instrument using the power of air. No harsh picking or plucking, just assorted techniques for moving air deftly across the strings.
The guitar, Yvaine, was recorded simultaneously via two tracks (one direct and another amped and mic'd) and was set to 23 different tunings to encompass the full spectrum of her voice, character, and soul. The tunings are as follows:
All5ths | B6th | Capo12th | CassianoPereiraViana | CrossnoteF | Cuba | DADGAD | DropB | Hawaiian | Koto | OpenA | OpenC | OpenD | OpenE | OpenF | OpenG | OpenPage | Orkney | Ostrich | Pentatonic | “Spira” | Standard | TheEdge
The files range from uber clean and harmonic to gritty, crackling, and distorted. For some of the overdriven amped recordings, we even experimented with creative NR settings for the modulation of artificial harmonics…and kept some of the more colorful results! Between the two different tracks, multiple takes were made per strength, per position, per recording. Depending on which takes were best, some of the DI and amped captures matched, while others were physically different. This offers unique layering capabilities for some sets while allowing for variety in others. Some of the sets are missing particular strength recordings at specific positions. But if a capture wasn't appropriate, we didn't include it.
This is a bountiful collection of droning goodness. Use it for good.
In a remote research lab in the north-east of England, scientists have been secretly carrying out experiments on a number of human test subjects. There is no record of what these experiments entailed or who authorized them, but one thing we do know is that something went horrendously wrong and transformed these once-innocent, everyday people into something else entirely… Something inherently evil.
Herein lies an audio documentation of these wretched beasts as they run amok with only one thing on their minds… To feed and to destroy.

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.
