The Bag Foley Library offers you a nice palette of everyday bag sounds from: Four different backpacks, three kinds of shoulder bags, a duffel sports bag, two camera bags, a ukulele case, a canvas bag, a purse, a wallet, a rack case and the sound of an Imac unboxing.
All files contain variations of the performance. The sounds are recorded in a quiet room with a Neumann KM185 through a UA Apollo preamp.
Need the sounds of a deserted school? This library delivers a range of room tones from empty corridors, cellars, staircases, toilets and dining halls – featuring ventilation sounds and heaters humming in empty halls during the Christmas holidays.
This Gym Weights library focuses on clinking weights in different shapes and sizes, mostly barbell and hand weights – recorded in an empty gym. As a bonus it contains hits on a punching bag, an ambience track from a large gym (with the sound of people & exercise activity), and some workout machine sounds.
The library is recorded with film sound in mind, so the sounds are not compressed to death. These are also great ingredients for metal impact sound design.
The Iron 883 is not the biggest Harley Davidson bike around, but it has that recognizable HD throttle sound – in a different tone that you might lack in your sound collection.
The library contains starts, idling, passbys at different speeds and onboard driving on both gravel and asphalt roads. A bunch of foley tracks, burglar alarm, false starts, on spot revving recordings and more.
The onboard recordings consists of a Shure SM57 on the motor and an Oktava MK012 cardioid pointed at the exhaust pipe. These are conveniently exported together as stereo tracks to ease synchronization and mixing in your daw.
Each clip contains detailed metadata information, with filename, description, microphone, picture and more.
Get the sound of rain – recorded from an interior perspective.
This library contains various types and intensities of rain, from soft dripping to downpour, and the files are long enough to cover the rainbursts from start to end. Most of the files are also easily loopable.
Some of the sounds are recorded with closed windows for a realistic indoor perspective. In other takes a window is left ajar to enhance the sound of the rain outside and four files gives you an exterior perspective from a porch.
Locations covered: two greenhouses, two cars, a privy, a shed, a boathouse, a variety of rooms and roof materials.
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’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.
