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:


Please share:
One wish – please share these resources:

If you find a resource below that’s particularly useful to you, I have one small request: Please share it with your friends, colleagues and elsewhere in your network, so more people can benefit from it. Thanks in advance!

  • Environments Wind In Broadleaf Trees Play Track 42 sounds included, 66 mins total $20 $15

    Wind In Broadleaf Trees is a collection of recordings focusing on wind through broadleaf trees. Recorded in a Swedish forest in October it is representative of the most common broadleaf trees in Europe and other areas with a temperate climate.

    In this collection I wanted to capture evocative and emotional wind sounds, from the soothing and relaxing soft winds, tense moderate winds, dramatic strong winds and the transitions between the different emotions or speeds of wind.

    The collection was recorded at 24 bits 96Khz with an A-B stereo setup. It contains both longer files, with two minutes and more in length and shorter files edited to be a seamless loop. The files also come with embedded metadata.

  • Ambisonics Room Tones USA Play Track 97 sounds included, 420+ mins total From: $109 From: $87.20

    ROOM TONES USA – 3D SURROUND AMBIENCES
    Our fourth entry of our famous sound effect series 3D SURROUND is now available: After ROOM TONES EUROPE comes ROOM TONES USA.

    As you’d expect from a library labeled “room tones”, the sounds come without much action in the foreground but with a very detailed acoustic image of each room, giving you the perfect basic noise layer to break the silence in your post production project. The recorded rooms vary from hallways and warehouses over cafes, offices, basements, apartment rooms, laundry and boiler rooms to industrial rooms and even an underground bunker. ROOM TONES USA covers all different scenarios you could possibly need, delivered fully surround with unprecedented precision, spatial impression and clarity. Undoubtedly, this can be easily used in stereo productions as well. Either chose the angle yourself or use the stereo version (included in 3D SURROUND).
