Spectacular sci-fi sound effects, from robot sounds, spacecraft and lasers to other futuristic sounds
Synth Tech is a collection of synthesized futuristic elements. The library consists of Blasts, Lasers, Force fields, Power ups, Power downs, Telemetry, Whooshes, and more. Each category of sound has several stylistic variations with 6 or more variations of each sound effect per audio file. Go nuts! :)
Synthesized Moods is a collection of 18 soundscapes, drones and textures produced by sound designer Giorgio Riolo using Native Instrument’s Massive plug-in.
All moods are “Synthesized”, imaginary and abstract.
They’ll add a bizarre layer to your ambiences sound effects and sometimes they’ll give a musical taste with a sci-fi, dark and sinister accent to your project .
Synthesized Moods is available in two versions:
Synthetic Drones is the beginning of a new, affordable series aimed at delivering high quality cinematic soundscapes, with variety and flexibility in mind to induce dread and discomfort onto your audiovisual ventures.
Synthetic Drones was achieved by running a multitude of analog synthesizers through complex effects chains, resulting in resonant, cold, mechanical ambiences where its source remains abstract and mysterious.
Each audio file contains several variations of the same synthesizer and effects chain, ranging from simple resonant notes, abstract rhythmic clanging and organic soundscapes, rounded up with a futuristic approach, perfect for gloomy science-fiction projects. The takes are long and evolving, giving you creative freedom to use them however deemed necessary.
Synthetic Sphere is a collection of spatialised synthetic pads. Multiple layers of pads, tones and amorphic FX are spreaded across the sphere, resulting in a truly immersive experience. These pads include gentle movement across 3D space, creating rich ambiances but without catching to much of the listener attention.
This collection is great for post production, VR/AR experiences, game developers and any real-time 3D audio engine.
All files are tagged and categorized for your convenience – supporting tag filtering browsing applications.
This package includes 10 stereo samples – Total 51 minutes of content.
The library is also available in an Ambisonic version here.
TEXTROBOT is a NI Kontakt instrument designed to help you in the sound design of UI sounds and to produce retriggered samples for VFX text animations.
All 165 sounds are easily accessible using a MIDI master keyboard from the first octave. You can choose a category to load a set of samples and play it manually, or in the retriggered way (if active) by holding down the note. The full version of NI Kontakt is required to use this library.
• Click (10 samples): very tight, clicky sounds for UI interface usage or small text VFX
• Bleeps (16 samples): it contains bleeping sounds, tones, and alerts for telemetrics and sci-fisound design
• Big Size (16 samples): a collection of low frequency sounds for big title animation
• Percussive (22 samples): organic and processed percussive sounds like shakers, maracas, and woods for multimedia apps or menu sound design
• Fun (30 samples): a collection of funny sounds for cartoonish motion graphics
• Digital (20 samples): glitches and lo-fi sounds for experimental videos
• Keys (28 samples): keyboards, typewriters, and mouse sounds
• Mechanical (23 samples): switches, clangs, squeaks, and metal impact sounds for mechanic motion graphics
The Arduino Collection is a library of electronic gizmos manipulated through an Arduino UNO, custom built circuitry and code. Clocking in at over 75 minutes, the collection features piezos, motors, servos and fans, all provided at 192KHz.
Within each category multiple types, actions and variations were recorded. Amongst other assets, motors for instance include quick revs and longer engine drones spread across three different RPM configurations. Perfect for robots, servos have a diverse selection of manual and automated movements, whilst the piezo category features a rich palette of simple and more esoteric tones.

Dr. Daniels is the only dentist I’ve ever known and he was gracious enough to let me roam around his office after hours collecting these sounds.
The intent was to gather source material for hi-tech gadgetry so the library contains a nice selection of tools and equipment including drills, a mouth vacuum, an ultrasonic water sprayer, dental lathe, dental kiln, a creepy sounding dentist chair and a wicked cool CEREC machine (diamond tipped milling machine that cuts dental implants).
The handheld tools are “performed” so as to create movement, pass by’s and simulate power fluctuations.

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:
96 kHz .WAV version• Audio Format: Broadcast Wave Files (.wav)
• Bit Depth: 24-bit Size: 2.49 GB
• Download size is 1.82 GB (compressed .rar archive)

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.
