‘Dark World’ is a collection of 50 drones and moods (250 mins +) that explore ideas of designed spaces.
Blurring the lines between score and sound design, ‘Dark World’ combines sound effects and musical instruments to create tense, beautiful and eerie moods. Made for composers and sound designers and ideal for surround sound placement.
DARKSCAPES is a collection of 30, seamlessly looping, dark, horror-inducing soundscapes and ambiences with total run time of 35 minutes.
All sound effects have been created using real field recordings in order to add organic feel to them and trick your brain into
perceiving them as something realistic and later edited with top of a line outboard and plugins to add dark, horror-inducing depth to them.
All SFX have baked-in Soundminer’s meta data
RECORDED WITH: Sound Devices MixPre 6 + Senhheiser MKH8060, DPA4060, PCM D100

Databending: A digital art form where flaws in digital systems are exploited and used for creative purposes.
Data Disruption contains 200 sounds sourced from raw computer files which have been interpreted as audio data. Bitmaps, executables, plugin files and more have been exploited to bring you a unique, varied collection of sound effects and atmospheres ready for a range of productions.
This sound collection has 100 'raw' files which include harsh, random data noises, intense drones and a versatile selection of glitch one shots as well as 100 processed sounds which were subject to extreme editing and mangling to deliver an array of abstract sonic artefacts.
Most useful for scenarios where computer technology – known or otherwise – is glitching out, these sounds are best suited to Science Fiction productions which call for the noise of broken communications, signal failures, ailing machines, industrial settings, planetary ambience and dystopian soundworlds.
That's not to say they won't also come in handy for Glitch/IDM music producers looking to build up an original collection of sounds for their latest kit, or for the creative sound designer to further shape these sounds into anything from user interface clicks, blips and bleeps to surreal soundscapes and beyond.
Data Processing is a sound effects library that emulates the movement of data and adds digital texture to your sound design.
Use these effects as building blocks to build digital, robotic, harsh, abstract and glitchy sound design or music. Also great as user interface elements.
We recorded and designed data transfer from 5G, WIFI, Solid State Drives, USB-C and more, as well as using analogue synthesizers, guitar pedals and raw data files to enhance the library.
Dehumaniser 2 is a powerful vocal processing tool perfect for creature sound design. Utilising incoming live or pre-recorded signals, the software allows you to dynamically tailor effects while creating multi-layered sound instantly.
Perfect for audio professionals, this versatile tool makes a strong addition to any film, TV or video game post-production process. Its flexibility also makes the plugin ideal for use in live environments, including theatre performances, Halloween attractions or voiceover/dialogue sessions.
Ships with over 100 monstrous presets and 133 high-quality animal recordings, including Tigers, Leopards, Pigs, Parrots and more.

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.
