Spectacular sci-fi sound effects, from robot sounds, spacecraft and lasers to other futuristic sounds
Transitions 003 brings you even more specially crafted sounds for all your animation, game or film post production needs. Each sound has been carefully created using a variety of processing plugins and techniques to give you an arsenal of unique FX to use in your next productions. All files have been meta tagged so they'll be easily searchable in Soundminer.
Transmission apparatus is a construction kit designed to create a broad range of communication sounds, from real to “alien” broadcasting signals.
The library contains more than 2 GB of data, delivered in 373 files of unique sound material. It’s catalogued in five elements: AM (amplitude modulation), FM (frequency modulation), SSB (single side band – aka ham radio), KYMA (synthesised noises) and VOCAL (unintelligible speeches).
The first three bands were recorded from the output of different radio receivers at 96 kHz via a Crane Song HEDD (Harmonically Enhanced Digital Device) to add warmth and tube/analog sonic color to the recordings. All the samples have been carefully selected from these recording sessions, with the addition of just a little dsp processing to widen the stereo field.
The Kyma folder also contains unique audio files entirely synthesised in the SSC Kyma+Paca(rana) environment. A group of SFX called Vocal is the result of “destroyed” dialogues and vocal sources via spectral processing.
Transmission Apparatus is available in two versions:

TURBINE is a revolutionary sound design plug-in that gives you access to a wide range of authentic virtual engines based on their real-world counterparts. Over the last 4 years of intense research and development we shaped this breakthrough software tool that revolutionizes the way we do sound design. TURBINE is here to blow your mind and to simplify your work in so many ways.
You can change and automate all parameters in real-time, giving you full control over the final result.
1. A free license management software
2. A portable USB device that must be purchased separately. Please note that a lot of software plug in creators use the iLok system, so if you already own a 2nd generation (or newer) iLok USB device, you don’t need to purchase another one and if you purchase an iLok USB device now you can use it with software from other manufacturers (one iLok to rule them all).
An iLok device can be purchased directly at ilok.com or – if you want to purchase from outside the USA – here. Additionally, you can get an iLok device from the most music or audio software retailers.
A 2nd generation (or newer) iLok USB device must be plugged into your workstation to run our TURBINE software. Without a 2nd generation (or newer) iLok device, the TURBINE software will not load. This applies to both editions, the free trial and the full version. When plugged into your workstation, our software will recognize your license and you can work with it.

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.

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.
