Vol 1 is an excellent all-around base library that includes whooshes, clicks, pops, swells, ratchets, slides, rips, drags, flicks, crumples, and dings – all custom designed with the playfulness and clean edges required to match the explainer video style.
To help cover repetitive visual movements, multiple iterations of each sound are included. A host of designed sounds will quickly cover more complex movements.

Fight is part of the comprehensive melee and hand combat series from Black Edge Sound Studios (formerly Output Audio). Recorded at Universal Sound, a dedicated foley stage in Amersham, UK with a wealth of experience in crafting sound for feature film, TV and video games.
The Fight sound library has an extensive collection of of punch, kick, cloth, breaks, gore, whoosh and body fall.

The library metadata has been designed to provide a fast, efficient workflow to picture and video game, ideal for quick turn arounds.
Expanding the selection further with the original recordings means that editors can quickly create mixes and then refine and stylise. A Pro Tools session is included (2020.3) that takes all the effort out of arranging the content for mixing. The recordings have been edited and aligned with a choice of microphones. You can drop in your own routing, processing and mixing touches according to taste and quickly establish a new sound set for the picture or video game you are working with.

Blood, gore, bone breaks, body fall, punches, kicks, cloth, whoosh, prop crashes and impacts, bat weapons, material debris, hand combat arrangements and more.
Whooshes are a key component for energy and drama in a fight scene, but can sometimes be over the top. So I recorded a simple but very useful library of cloth moves specifically for fights. They work like whooshes but sound a lot more natural.
Three different fabrics: jeans, nylon shorts and a cotton pillow case. All with the same coverage: grabs, single moves (varying intensities), sequenced moves for more variation, and struggling moves for when your character is pinned.
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.
Fireworks frankly are a difficult thing to record due to a mixture of legal restrictions, location, and price. This little collection are all sorts of novelty and aerial fireworks shot in a very remote desert with no birds, bugs, cars or anything of the sort, recorded at 192 with a spaces pair of Sanken CO100k microphones in close proximity for pitch and speed manipulation.
No microphones were hurt in the making of this library
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 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.

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.
