Clicky and rolling metallic sounds from an old metallic Sweda cash register from the 1970s + a bonus Kontakt MIDI instrument.
Great source material for designing all sorts of odd mechanical insects, robot or machine movement, mechanical UI buttons or just actual cash registers in shopping scenes. ~270 sounds in 165 files.
We recorded the cash register with high quality microphones from multiple perspectives – even with a lavalier microphone hidden inside the machine for super dry mechanical sounds and contact microphone attached to the back for beefy low end that can be mixed in to make your sounds feel heavier. We even added punchy ready-to-use detailed mixes of all the microphones. Recorded in a professional noise free recording studio, giving you the complete freedom to shape the sounds as you please
We experimented to explore all the sonic gems hiding in the machine. You’ll find sounds of the electric number indicators rolling when pressing the payment button, creepy click-clacky insect-like movements, thin metallic movements and impacts and foley sounds from touching and handling the cash registers.
The library has been tagged with extensive metadata and has been tested in Soundminer, Basehead, Soundly and Pro Sound Effects’ Search to make it easy to find the sounds you are looking for.
The library comes with a Kontakt instrument (requires full version of Kontakt 6) with several round robins and multiple microphone positions that be used to add mechanical rhythms to your music, or easily sync the sounds to pictures with MIDI notes.

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.

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.
