Vibrations Bowed Materials 1 is a construction kit library composed of various plastic, metal and paper materials vibrated with a cello bow! These sounds are meant to be manipulated and mangled to oblivion for further creative purposes. These sounds are highly flexible and can easily be pitch-shifted -48 semitones or more. They remain remarkably useful and clean giving each sound multiple “dimensions”.
I’ve found particularly strong potential in using these for creature sound design. One of the metal props recorded was also used to produce my Electric Arcs and Energy designed sound library. The array of how they could be used or transformed is quite possibly endless!
Great care was taken during the recording and editing process to ensure maximum flexibility of these sounds. The recording was done at 24 Bit / 192 kHz using the Sennheiser MKH 8050 mic which captures frequencies up to 50kHz. Any processing or editing was then performed at 192kHz.
Includes Forge/Reaktor Sample Maps
7 Different Bowed Metal Prop Recordings
6 Different Bowed Paper Prop Recordings
7 Different Bowed Plastic Prop Recordings
1000 sounds total
If you own the Forge Sound Design Toolkit this library also comes with a specially curated sample map. The sample map can be loaded into the sampler for randomization and the creation of more complex sounds.

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.
