Breathe fear and awe into your work with Atmospheric Dread, carefully designed and ever-evolving drones, intertwined with swelling textures.
Inspired by the sound of films such as Arrival, Blade Runner 2049, Interstellar, Alien: Covenant, Prometheus, and more, I’ve created a new Drone library, all whilst listening to the feedback from Aberrant Drones users, and reviewers.
I’ve not only worked on improving the quality of the soundscapes further, but I’ve also broken down files into more manageable chunks, up to around 6 minutes long, and brutally cut out whatever did not feel like it should go in the library.
As a result, Atmospheric Dread is a smaller library, at least compared to the massive Aberrant Drones, whilst delivering 63 minutes of gut-wrenching, eye-widening, and fear-inducing soundscapes.
The library is comprised of 24bit/96kHz .WAV files, all stuffed to the brim with rich, and descriptive SoundMiner metadata, thus allowing you to find what you need immediately.
The eerie sound of wind resonating through wires, fences and abandoned buildings.
Recorded using the JrF C-Series contact microphone, these recordings capture the metallic resonance of wind with natural ebbs and flows.
All sounds were recorded using the JrF C-Series contact microphone stereo pair and Sound Devices Mix-Pre 6.
Frustration. You’ve spent hours on a project, only to end up with a sound scape that feels incomplete. The action scene feels empty, the weapons don’t sound heavy enough, the transitions don’t pack enough of a punch, the space ship doesn’t feel large enough and the monsters aren’t sufficiently scary.
The Augmentation Elements library has been built with this problem in mind. Due to the library’s abstract nature, the Risers, Stings, Swells and Whooshes can be molded and manipulated into adding that missing element that you’re looking for, and sweetening the whole mix.
In order to save you time and help you quickly find the sounds that you need, SoundMiner metadata has been carefully created for each individual file. There are no ‘Scream, 1’ and ‘Scream, 2’ in this library! Every single file is individually described, and the use of numbers is not employed!
Have a look at the metadata list further down the page!
Now, Your futuristic energy weapons don’t sound full enough? Try layering some of the stings and swells underneath them.
That large space ship doesn’t seem large enough? Grab some whooshes and pan them to your heart’s delight.
The alien doesn’t sound scary enough? Some of the stings sound eerily close to vocalizations. Grab them and run wild.
Are crucial transitions in your film lacking punch? Drag some of those risers into your DAW and see which one fits best!
Need to create suspense, tension and movement in your production? AXmos Cinematic Guitars is great for you.

Looking for baby sounds?

We invited a lot of babies at the age from 3 to 24 months – boys and girls – to our studio.
They followed our call, brought their parents and the funny and often loud recordings started. We also equipped every new parent in our office with our best microphones and recorders and instructed them on how to record their own babies at home. You'll just love the multicolored, sweet and piercing high-quality recordings.

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!

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!
