Audio Shade provides evocative sound effects that are meticulously recorded, edited, and embedded with rich metadata.
Approaching each library with the sound editor/designer in mind, we provide a wide variety of coverage, perspectives, and performances.
We also “trim the fat” from the recordings so your time can be focused on the creative process.
Clicks is busting at the seams with a wide variety of buttons, switches, dials, pumps, and more. Whether you’re in need of realistic buttons for a dramatic movie scene, or designing mechanical sounds for the next AAA video game, these clicks are bound to have you covered. Both near and distant perspectives were captured for (nearly) all recordings in this library, which adds flexibility when matching these sound effects to picture.
Some of the objects in this library include but are not limited to:
After the presidential election of Donald Trump in 2016, many Americans have taken to the streets to express their opposition. This library features many chants from various crowd sizes including: “Black Lives Matter” “We reject the president elect!” “Show me what democracy looks like! This is what democracy looks like!” and many more. Also included are isolated crowd cheers, walla, and distant speeches.
Recordings were made on 11-12-2016 and 1-21-2017 in Los Angeles, CA, USA. Microphone used: Sennheiser MKH40+30.
100% of the profits from this library will be donated to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
Non-Profit organizations may utilize this library free of charge. Please contact Audio Shade directly to receive a copy after verification of organization credentials.
Encore! Concert Audiences is packed with vibrant cheers, applause, and walla to bring your concert crowds to life. The variation from small lounges to outdoor music festivals allows you to cover a multitude of projects. We wanted to put you “in the audience” with this library, so we got nice and close to all the emotion emanating from these crowds. In addition, there are plenty of distant perspectives to give you more general sounding crowds.
The post process:
Great care was put into the editing phase of this library in order to maintain clean heads and tails for many of the recordings. We seamlessly sewed together multiple takes for those perfect sounding effects. We also took the time to edit out any and all extraneous noises such as stage sounds, distracting audience voices, offensive nearby claps, and more. In order to maintain the greatest dynamics, these sounds were all mastered at theatrical monitoring levels, giving you the most options in post. Metadata has been thoroughly fleshed out for this library which makes searching for these sounds quick and easy, allowing more time for your creative process.
Gear Used: Sennheiser MKH30/40 in MS setup, Sound Devices 744t, Sony PCM-D50, Tascam DR-100 mkII
‘Quadcopter Flight’ shows off these buzzing beasts from near and far in both quiet exterior locations and the studio.
Featuring a large quadcopter and two minis, these machines were captured as they performed all possible actions, such as take-offs, flybys, revs, and sustained flight.
The library also has foley, a few crashes, and recordings from contact mics that were attached to the two smaller quads for sounds of high-tech servo/rotor sounds that can be used for sci-fi projects containing robots, sliding doors, and more.

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.

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.
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.
