Spectacular sci-fi sound effects, from robot sounds, spacecraft and lasers to other futuristic sounds
We’ve dug deep into the circuit paths of electronic equipment using signal tracers to scan and record electronic noise and electromagnetic fields (EMF) emanating from electronic equipment.
This first in a series of three sound libraries focus on the feel of clocking, ticking, pulses, crystal oscillator timing and other cyclic repetition to provide a rhythmic element to the sound effect. Includes sounds of data flow with beeps, tones, glitch, pops, snaps, crackles, static noise & interference. Be careful with your ears, some of these are nasty sounding.
61 sound effects created as 10-second files that can be used to create an environment, whooshes or looped and layered to make atmospheres. Recordings were left as raw as possible keeping all the bits intact for designing new creations. Great for technology, data transmission & communication, computer circuits, control systems & Sci-Fi

Are you looking for a dark-sounding user interface sound library? Something that calls back to movies like Prometheus or Oblivion? Then look no further. This library is made for sci-fi films and games, with its futuristic loops, drones, transitions, buttons, glitches and plenty more. These are the sounds that can flesh out the advanced technology in your spacecraft's cabin as it wanders deep in the outer limits of the universe.
SciFi Drones is a composite collection of very disturbing and scary futuristic spaceship ambiences, Sci-Fi Drones and organic, surreal alien-atmospheres.
Each drone is 2 minutes long, with very versatile variations in each file. And whether it comes to futuristic horror settings, abandoned sci-fi corridors, large spaceship halls, haunted basements or open space in an alien galaxy, this will set the right tone.
Fantastic for any sci-fi project – and will also set the tone equally well for other disturbing cyberpunk projects and scary industrial spaces.
This library is a hybrid-production; A symbiosis of organic original field-recordings like Room Tones, Construction Sites, Traffic, Zoo-Animals, Motors and synthetic elements. Lot’s of spectral and granular synthesis. And lots of sound designing, of course.
In this Kit all “Dark SciFi Drones” were carefully split in logical frequency Layers. So you have better control and you can do your own mix of these elements.
Also you can combine and mix the different layers across the ambiences by drag&drop to create nearly endless variations. Or easily do creative up-mixes to surround.
The duration of each Drone is 1:00 minute with very versatile variations in each file.
Use the layers in “Playlists” (Pro Tools) or “Track Versions” (Nuendo) for best flexibility and easy access.
Each layer of the same Drone is named after the Drone plus a letter for the layer. Starting at “A” (low frequency)…
Each Drone is separated in 2-5 layers.
‘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.
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.

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.
