Get the sounds of a drone / quadcopter, from a wide range of models – capturing everything from propeller closeups, servo engine sounds, drones in flight and more:
High quality unprocessed drone/quadcopter recorded using both binaural and mid-side microphone techniques. 4 different types of quadcopters were used in this sound library.
Gear: Neumann KU-100 binaural dummy head microphone, Schoeps mid-side setup (Schoeps CMC6 MK8, Schoeps, CCM M4, Sound Devices Mix-Pre 6)
This unique SFX library gets you the close-up engine/rotor sounds of the DJI Phantom 2 multirotor quadcopter. And whether you are working on project that needs the engine sounds of an actual quadcopter drone, or intend to use the recordings as source material for sound design of all kinds of machines – this collection will come in handy:
We recorded static sound perspectives at different speeds, intensities and rotor combinations. The collection includes long recordings at constant speeds, variations on accelerating and decelerating, various maneuvers and random rotor movements.
For even more variety we recorded all of the above with a mix of contact and coil microphones giving you a less realistic, more futuristic sound perspective to the drone’s engine itself, rather than the air movement caused by the rotors. Mix those recordings with the MKH 8040 recordings to create your own blend of engine sounds: be it a drone, spaceship or other types of futuristic vehicles.
Quadcopter Drone CX10 is a small radio controlled toy with a feisty character that could be described as a robotic version of an angry bee.
This library covers in detail everything you can do with this little neat quadcopter drone. You get sounds of acceleration, deceleration, steady engine fly loops of various speeds, engine revs, fast turns, ground hoppings and takeoffs. In case you need them I also recorded collisions and landings on various surfaces like carpet, metal, rock, plastic etc. Surprisingly these sounds are quite suitable for user interface sounds too.
The steady engine fly loop sounds are really useful when you want to create your own flyby / passby sounds. I can also imagine using this library to add some unique flavour to winged insecty characters in a game or just to richen otherwise bland engine sounds.
The whole library was recorded in 96KHz 24bit quality so these sounds are really flexible if you want to experiment with pitch, stretch and other audio tools.
You get the sounds in two formats: 96 KHz 24 bit and in 44.1 KHz 16 bit, for more convenient ways of utilizing the sounds in games and other media.
‘Quadcopter Flight’ shows off these buzzing beasts from near and far in both quiet exterior locations and the studio.
Featuring a large quadcopter and two minis, these machines were captured as they performed all possible actions, such as take-offs, flybys, revs, and sustained flight.
The library also has foley, a few crashes, and recordings from contact mics that were attached to the two smaller quads for sounds of high-tech servo/rotor sounds that can be used for sci-fi projects containing robots, sliding doors, and more.

Looking for sounds of a remote controlled car? Here you go: This sound effects library features 170 sound effects of the Reely Core RC Car. You get several on-board and external driving sounds, pass-bys, close-up steering mechanics and idling mixtures, and of course some crashes. All sounds are edited and cleaned for direct use in your upcoming sound design projects. All sounds contain detailed BWF Metadata.
Orbital Emitter is proud to present Star Fighter Alpha – a comprehensive sci-fi sound-set providing a rich arsenal of futuristic space fighter sounds for you to use in all of your creative productions!
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.
