General Hospital


HAL has teamed up with sound designer Raphael Sohier to create the most comprehensive hospital sound effects library to date. General Hospital has 760 files and over 2000 sounds covering all aspects of the genre.

This collection is the result of years of work and aims to set a new standard for a genre mostly neglected by independent sound libraries until now. Even old tropes need new sound ideas (no pun intended) and we think we have achieved exactly this with our library.

This is an All-in-One SFX library where you will find :

Ambiences – Whether it is a busy corridor, a bursting waiting area or the strange calm of an ICU bedroom with all its machines, you will find it in here. We have recorded in various hospitals located in France – discernible speech was edited out so the recordings could cover a broader use.

Medical Equipment – From the syncopated hissy sound of a ventilator to the disruptive power of a MRI machine or the strange hollow resonances of an hyperbaric chamber, we’ve recorded a large number of medical devices with multiple perspectives.

Activities – What would be of a medical drama without the sound of hasty fooststeps down the hallway or of a gurney descending abruptly out of an ambulance ? Typical activities such as these were recorded on real locations for this collection.

Foley – We have welcomed veteran foley artist Gilles Marsalet in order to cover some specifics such as surgical instruments and operating table gore which, to say the least, demands a certain finesse – the same delicacy that separates doctors from flesh-eating zombies.

Sirens – Wailing, whoppers, piercers, buzzers, dual-tone…we’ve got them all. Getting in and out of a hospital in style is guaranteed.

Beeps – These are perhaps the most iconic sounds related to this kind of environment. Our collection has beeps in all waveshapes and colors, recorded from real devices in pristine condition and designed for even more flexibility. Whether you are looking for realism or  you just want to enhance the drama, General Hospital has got you covered.

Hospitals are often depicted in fiction because they are places inherently rich in conflict and human drama. They are the ideal setting for stories about struggle, sacrifice, strengthening of bonds, loss… As sound designers we try to enhance these feelings through the creation of dynamics and subtle sonic variations. General Hospital was crafted with this in mind and it offers a broad palette of sounds in order to give you as many options as possible while working on a scene.
