Anybody familiar with travelling on the London Underground will be aware of the distinct soundscapes beneath the streets of London; from the clatter of the ticket hall barriers to the eerie rumbles from the tunnels, waiting in anticipation for the next train to come rushing past before stopping with the squeal of the brakes.

In Science Fiction, star fighters blast across the cosmos leaving other vessels in their fiery wake.
These nimble craft fly at incredible speeds engaging in battle and patrolling the stars. Countless movies, video games and media have featured these sleek space ships at the center of their adventures.
Where would you begin sound designing one of these nuanced spacecraft? You could probably spend hours just finding the right real-world jet fighter sounds to start… Then comes all the re-synthesis and balancing just to make it sound authentic. With deadlines looming and the need for cinematic and convincing science fiction sound being higher than ever, wouldn’t it be great to have a foundation of cinematic sci-fi sounds at your fingertips?
Star Fighter Alpha contains powerful engine blasts, advanced cockpit displays, aligned interior and exterior flight perspectives, robust fly-bys, searing weapons blasts and more! Each sound file is designed to be flexible, enabling you to pick and choose from our long-playing audio-scenes as well as customize your own creations using our isolated audio-stems!
We will be releasing more Star Fighter sound-sets soon as well as other sci-fi environments and nuanced sound-sets exploring the incredible multiverse of Science Fiction sound! We hope you enjoy using our sounds as much as we have making them. Thanks for reading!

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.
