Abandoned Doors

(3 customer reviews)


Finding the right door sound can be a pain, thus Abandoned Doors was recorded with that need in mind.

All the 1400+ sounds were recorded in abandoned mansions and houses with unique sonic characteristics, in stereo, usually from two perspectives (inside the room and in the hallway), allowing you a great deal of choice and offering sonic diversity.

Additionally, splitting the stereo tracks into mono will give you two more slightly different perspectives on each sound.

The Abandoned Doors library offers a multitude of door recordings, ranging from heavy wooden doors found in turn of the century mansions to cheap old doors in an abandoned warehouse, being opened, closed, slammed, knocked on, kicked, banged on, and even hit with a bat.

Whilst most door libraries simply name files ‘door open 01’, etc, Abandoned Doors has been carefully tagged with rich SoundMiner metadata and multiple keywords, giving you a clearer image of what a file contains just by reading the title. For more information on what kinds of sounds are present in the library, feel free to consult the metadata file down below.

    Doors are probably one of the sounds that come up most often in projects across most mediums, and in my experience one of the subjects that no one library will cover everything you need.

    Abandoned doors does one of the best jobs I’ve seen in a library providing coverage of various actions in a SFX library. It really hits a lot of the common actions with multiple intenities and variations for instance; single knock, multiple knocks, opening door knob, jiggling door knob ect. while also hitting; Door kick ins, key jiggling, shaking doors and window rattles.

    Everything within the files are organized really well with just the right amount of description in the metadata.

    I think the only thing this library potentially has going against it is how reverberant some of the rooms are, and this is more of a double edged sword, because they’re very cleanly recorded, so if I were cutting a door with reverb, these would be go-tos, but some things like kicking a door in without a long reverb tail would be more useful to me in a lot of scenarios.

    If you’re buying a library called abandoned doors where it’s description is specifically citing these are abandoned spaces and you’re not expecting a live room, I don’t know what you were expecting.

    Over all, a great add to the library, and really happy with the purchase

    An excellent collection of door and gate sounds. Love the fact that the distant perpectives still retain a lot of low end, which makes them perfect for sound design.

    I had this library for a few month and recentley I used it in three of my past four projects. Great perspectives and characteristic sounds that paint a picture of the houses I was working on really well. The description is very good and made me find the right sounds fast.
