Whoosh sound effects, designed movement sounds and transition sound effects
Need the sound of burning fire, flames, fizzles, ignites, melting, crackling, rumbling, fire popping, or flame hissing?
This library is hot stuff in every sense of the word, delivering a range of burning sounds from a wide range of sources, including branches, black powder, burning bags, butane torches, celluloid, deep-frying batter, flares, gas stoves, frying pans, matches, sparkling candles, boiling water, huge torches and much more.
Fireballs is a powerful high-definition collection of whooshing, roaring, bursting, sparking, whipping, zipping, sizzling and crackling fireballs, fire sound effects and infernos – created in collaboration with flame effects expert Cary Sparx.
Aside from the flaming staves, rope darts, fire swords, meteors and flamethrowers that you’d hope for, you’ll also get some additional, unusual, tonal flame effects.
The sounds are also great for more textured whooshes and swishes, or adding punch to impacts, or generally getting that extra bassy oomph out of your badass sound creations.
This library was created to provide designers with drag and drop sounds for sweeps, fades, surges, swells, and other embellishments. Each of the sounds in this collection were designed to be used to heighten events, but they can be mashed, stacked, and chopped to create all sorts of eclectic designs. There are plays on musical concepts as well as thematic events, with each sound purposefully building up, culminating in a peak moment, and then dissipating in some way. They are organized into 100 families (designs) with 5 variations each, ranging wildly in topic, movement, duration, dynamics, attack, release, loudness, density, and speed. Some are natural and organic while others are completely rigid and synthetic (and some fall variably in between).
If you need to festoon the heck out of a scene or event in your project…If you need some complex SFX designs craftily layered and ready-to-go…If you need a diverse set of easy-to-tweak, overflowing sonic enrichment, then look no further. You've found it.
Forge is a randomization and sample layering tool. It’s capable of creating quick iterations of single sound samples or using multiple sound samples to create more advanced iterations/combinations. It comes pre-loaded with 100 samples selected from our available sound libraries.
The complete Sound Design Toolkit comes with 7 unique libraries with over 800 sounds total. Reaktor 6 or Reaktor Player 6 is required to use the ensemble tool. The collection of 7 libraries can be used on it’s own with no reliance on Reaktor.
The Reaktor ensemble was created in Reaktor Version 6.2.2 and as such you will need at least this version or higher to open it.
“Forge is great when you find yourself with one sound and think “I really wish I had more versions of this.” With the ability to do random layers its a fun and inspirational time-saving tool!

The Glitch UI SFX library delivers a collection of user interface sounds created from mangled video files, circuit bent keyboards and dying hard drives.
Pops, clicks, glitches and transitions, all sourced from our Error Tone library but re-edited and processed specifically for sound designers with extensive Soundminer metadata.

An onslaught of movement and force using various granularities of dirt-like substances. It's all in the name. Dirty, gravelly, and ragged.
In this library you will find a myriad of gritty movement sounds derived from 4 different granularities: Course, Medium, Fine, and Ultrafine. There are sweeps, smears, crushes, scatterings, drops, scrapes, rubs, and more, with multiple variations of each. The assets chain together particularly well so that you can use them to make long continuous runs.
The timbre and dynamics of these sounds lend them to be used for many different designs than just scrapes and scratches, such as movement in snow or sand, powerful bursts, high energy flames, shifting heavy objects, large beast vocalizations (dragons, anyone?), and more. As well, their metadata is organized conveniently to allow you to grab chunks of variations on similar movements and drop them into your favorite audio implementation software for quick assignment to random containers or sequences for an asset or call.
This library will almost always find itself being thrown into a creative media project one way or another. Its full of a particular cornerstone sound that is essential to any sounds designer's toolbox. And with such a variety and versatility to explore, we promise it will serve you well.

The Impact Collection is a library of 304 impacts, whooshes, swells, static, rises and zaps all designed with Trailers and Promos in mind.
These sounds were designed using anything I could hit, bang, rumble and smash. In the process I destroyed a couple tools and put a healthy dent in a spare refrigerator, not to mention the smashing of dozens of plates as well as my neighbor’s leftover ceramic tiles.
After recording all of my source material I got to work on building pre-made impacts in various ways as well as adding a healthy dose of plug-in abuse. My Genelecs may never be the same! Thanks for listening.

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!
A Sound Effect is a great resource for keeping up on what's out there in the SFX library world. The site is well organized and it's easy to find stuff.
I love the behind the scenes articles - and the ability to purchase directly through the site is super convenient. The process is very straight forward and painless. I recommend it all the time.
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.
