Traffic Tones


‘Traffic Tones’ will help build flavorful air tones and atmospheres in order to support urban or suburban environments.

This sound library is divided into 2 main sections

1) Traffic Loops
2) Single Event Sounds

The first part of this library comprises a wide variety of long undisturbed traffic loops;
exempt from excessive dynamic fluctuations, and without any incongruous noises (such as birds).
These are non-disruptive atmospheres that you can easily layer up.
Ready to be inserted into your project, they will help you build the foundation of your own soundscape.

The second part of this library consists of ‘single event’ sounds.
They will bring character to your sound-bed and help soundify any story/visual cues.
You will find in this section well-classified eclectic sounds such as whistles, sirens, brake squeals,
but also more than 110 individual horns, and a massive collection of 300+ pass-by of all kinds…

The diversity of sounds delivered in this library reflects the large-scale recording process that took us 5 years to gather the right material, recorded throughout 30 cities in Europe, Asia, Africa, and America, from various perspectives in space and time, various weather conditions, various terrain type, and vehicle types.

What’s inside:

  • 88 selected ambience loops, well edited (9 of these ambiences are Quad Surround recordings), Organized by sub-section folders:

    • At Street Level
    • Distance Away ( Diffused)
    • From Above Perspective
    • From Inside (Vehicles  or House)
    • Near Bridges
    • Special Flavor
  • 400+ ‘single event’ sounds (204 files) are included in the library. These are +100 Horns, +300 Pass Bys of all kinds, + Miscelleneous single event sounds such as: brake squeals, sirens,  whistles, …

  • well-grounded Soundminer metadata, UCS-compliant

  • Recorded in 30 cities and areas throughout 5 continents, during the last 5 years


***Most of the library were recorded in 192KHz, however, in the majority of the recordings, there was no reason to keep this sample rate. Hence we saved some space and converted it to 96KHz unless interesting spectral information was found in these high ranges, in this case, we kept them at 192 kHz.

Alternatively, the pass-by section, which contains around 300 sounds, can be very useful to help design transitional sound effects such as dramatic accents, wooshes, or any other creative process.
