Are you ready to HEAR the heat? This is the LARGEST sauna sound effect library in the world! We have here 3 different saunas and as a bonus a wood stove. Included are almost everything that you can hear in a Finnish sauna.
Sauna #1: Basic Finnish sauna with wood burning sauna stove. Attached to the stove is a water tank for heating the water.
Sauna #2: Barrel sauna, which is almost the same as the basic wood burning sauna. It’s just shaped as a barrel, and not so traditional.
Sauna #3: Electric sauna. This sauna type is very used, especially in places where wood burning saunas are not possible. Sauna stove in this sauna is electric, but it still has the same stones as the other saunas.
Wood stove (Porin Matti): It’s for keeping your cabin warm during the cold winter, and also for cooking.
This sound effect library is organized in chronological order. In wood burning saunas you pour water inside a water tank, put firewood inside the sauna stove and make fire. When sauna stove is hot, you pour or throw water to the stones to get sauna hot. Then you can whip yourself with a birch vihta. After sauna you can pour hot water from the water tank into a bucket, mix it with cold water and wash yourself. When using electric sauna you first charge the sauna, and then when it´s hot, you continue as in wood burning sauna.

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.
