344 Audio is an Audio Post Production Studio in Manchester, England.
We have been crafting custom sound effects for almost 10 years. Now we would like to share them with the world.
Alien Atmospheres is a sound effects library that suggests alien presence, covering wildlife, weather, vehicles and ambiences.
These effects are perfect for use as backgrounds in sci-fi films, but can be used elsewhere.
We captured recordings at 4 exotic locations, layered tracks with analogue & digital synthesizers, human and animal voices to bring you 3GB of the most interesting sound effects.
Data Processing is a sound effects library that emulates the movement of data and adds digital texture to your sound design.
Use these effects as building blocks to build digital, robotic, harsh, abstract and glitchy sound design or music. Also great as user interface elements.
We recorded and designed data transfer from 5G, WIFI, Solid State Drives, USB-C and more, as well as using analogue synthesizers, guitar pedals and raw data files to enhance the library.
Haunting Ambiences contains dense, multilayered horror construction kits. Everything you need to build a world around your scenes with separated stems. We captured and designed field recordings from multiple countries, voices, instruments and synthesizers all in 24Bit 96kHz allowing for further manipulation.
These dense ambiences include split stems to encourage experimentation, allowing you to add or subtract certain elements, balance them or combine them with sounds from other construction kits in the pack. Perfect for your horror films, video games or escape room/live experiences.
Here are the included Construction Kits:
Haunted Factory: Moving gears, pipe bursts and the deafening buzz of industrial lighting.
Haunted Forest: Weird birds, crows, wolves, owls, tree creaks and much more!
Haunted House: Distinct creaks of a wooden building under a bed of creepy winds and clocks.
Haunted Neighbourhood: Dog barks, crickets and clocktowers sit above layered crickets and streetlights.
Haunted Sewers: Build a wet and dripping scene with flowing water and more distinct drips echoing through.

Nightmare: A discomforting array of voices, hums, and rumbles.

Torture Chamber: A deep and surreal ambience with screams, drills, tools and other torturous sounds.
Low Frequency Elements is a sound effects library that layers seamlessly into your tracklay, reinforcing your mix with thunderous low end.
Layer with impacts, design ambiences, music or a full mix to strengthen your sound.
We sourced and designed sounds from analogue & digital synthesizers, contact microphones, coil pickups, field recordings.
Supernatural Ghosts provides the sounds of spirits in multiple variations, allowing you to construct entire horror scenes and suggest ghostly presence. To bring you this horrifying library, we recorded and designed human voices, abstract instruments such as the waterphone, thunder tube, harmonica all in 24Bit 96kHz allowing for further manipulation.
All of the human voices are provided with dry variations to enable you to apply your own effects to taste.
Here are the included folders:
Ghostly Breaths: This folder consists of male and female inhales, exhales and angry breaths all with a cold and ghostly performance.
Ghostly Voices: A collection of phrases by male and female ghosts, perfect for giving a voice to a supernatural being within your scene.

The Torture Chamber puts you right into the perspective of the torture victim. Featuring screams, power tools, floor creaks, bone breaks, shackles, struggles, room tones and more. We captured and designed effects inside and outside of the studio, all in 24Bit 96kHz, allowing for further manipulation.
All vocalisations (and most of the effects) are provided without reverb, so that you can drop them straight into your mix and add your own spatial effects. Perfect for use in Film, TV, Game and horror productions.
Here are the included folders:
Foley: Sounds from both the victim and torturer, including different weapons of choice and the sounds of struggling.
Vocalisations: Screams, shouts and other terrifying vocals.
Ambiences: Roomtones and other elements to build your horrifying chamber.
Incidental Effects: Bursted pipes, distant dog barks, and rat movements to accent the world around your room of pain.

All vocalisations are provided without reverb, so that you can drop them straight into your mix and add your own spatial effects. Perfect for use in Film, TV, Game and horror productions.
Here are the included zombies:

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.
