Facebook Sound Resources Asbjoern Andersen

If you're using Facebook to stay updated on what's happening in the world of sound, we've got 4 groups that might be worth checking out:

They help you hear about the latest audio jobs, sound stories from the community, new indie SFX releases, and audio events around the globe - and you're more than welcome to join!

As a bonus, we've also added in 9 additional sound community tools and resources that'll hopefully come in handy too below:

  • Alchemy of Guns is a comprehensive weapon laboratory of single sounds made to be mixed, assembled and fit with each other.
    We built the library as an array of modular layers, each one bound to a specific alchemical element, each one made with a specific Xfer Serum setup, and since we enjoyed finding ourselves sketching on paper combinations of elements according to the combinations of the samples, we kept this general structure.

    A great collection of organic sliding whooshes. They sound great, have lots of movement and are almost always complicated movements not just simple whoosh by’s.
