“Helinä” can be translated as “the tinkling sound made by the shaking of tiny bells”. These may be wind chimes, and some are quite large, but the meaning of the name still rings true. Beautiful, glorious, and entrancing wind chimes, all stirred up for your designing and listening pleasure.
We've meticulously recorded and only very lightly edited 15 different sets of wind chimes composed of varying materials, shapes, and sizes. The result is a stirring array of shimmering textures from the soft dull knock of bamboo to the brilliant crystalline sparkle of obsidian.
You'll get incredible tonal depth, preciously sustained tails, and conveniently isolated strikes and “gusts” resulting in a natural representation of each chime. All of the chime-work was recorded in 192 kHz so you can bend, stretch, and twist with the comfort of the extended harmonic content of each chime. All of the performances resulted in 50 separate files for each of the 15 chimes, making layering and matching performances a breeze. In addition to the chime sets, we've included four stereo wind captures, in different capacities and locations, for adding context and ambiance to any wind chime-appropriate environment you may find yourself working on.

Eiravaein Works LLC is the product of years working, studying, and traveling over the globe to gain new perspectives on sound, soundscapes, cognition, human communication, and sensory perception. With facets of cognitive science, semiotics, international relations, and audio engineering, our approach to sound design and auditory development is diverse and unique. We strive to capture sounds that are rich in meaning, off the well-worn path, and outside of the everyday user’s collection. All audio offered from Eiravaein Works is 100% originally sourced in the field (…possibly in a field).
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.
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!

A Sound Effect is a great resource for keeping up on what's out there in the SFX library world. The site is well organized and it's easy to find stuff.
I love the behind the scenes articles - and the ability to purchase directly through the site is super convenient. The process is very straight forward and painless. I recommend it all the time.
