This Gym Weights library focuses on clinking weights in different shapes and sizes, mostly barbell and hand weights – recorded in an empty gym. As a bonus it contains hits on a punching bag, an ambience track from a large gym (with the sound of people & exercise activity), and some workout machine sounds.
The library is recorded with film sound in mind, so the sounds are not compressed to death. These are also great ingredients for metal impact sound design.
I am located in Helsinki, Finland. I spend most of my days mixing documentaries, tv and films. I also regularly work with tasks in the field as a sound mixer or boom operator.
I always keep my Sony D-100 recorder in my backpack, and if I get a day free from the studio, I often pack the car full with nice gear and scout for new sounds to expand my own library. I like to be part of the indie SFX community, and I have had really good use myself of some of the other libraries available here.
If you need some specific soundscapes from Finland or if you just want to trade sounds. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
Hope you enjoy my recordings and find them useful in your projects!
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.
A Sound Effect is a great asset to have discovered.
We found the site very easy to navigate, purchasing and downloads were effortless and the effects themselves are awesome! Asbjoern has done us all a great service.
We’ll definitely be back!
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.
