Cool stuff from C. A. Sound, Inc. As a general rule most of this is 24/96 and recorded with really good mic’s, really good pre-amps and really good recorders. From time to time we hear something so cool it stops us dead in our tracks and we madly scramble to find anything we can to capture it. Those times we use what ever is in our pocket.
Coll Anderson ‘s famed Battle Crowds library is the world’s largest collection of battle crowd sound effects, covering huge crowds as they’re deep in battle, celebrating and cheering, screaming, yelling, protesting, begging, crying and much more, as well as troop movements and marching through fields, forests, and around buildings, individual call-outs, marching and more. If you’re looking for the ultimate collection of battle crowd sounds for huge clashes, civil unrest and protests, or smaller skirmishes – captured from multiple perspectives – this is it!
Junkyard Car Smashed. Windows, doors, lights dash, great tearing of safety glass. Maybe should have ended up in gore, sweet and gross. Good glass shatter explosion.
I purchased a car in a junkyard and we went to town smashing it up. There are metal hits and glass hits as well. There are some great safety glass explosions as well as glass debris flying around inside the car. I smashed a bunch of the engine with a sledge hammer as well as dragging metal over engine parts. One of the best sounds is grinding and tearing the windshield. As safety glass is often covered with a thin film of plastic, it made the best sharp crackly flesh peeling sound ever. Perfect for adding destruction details.
Recorded in the woods, two pit bull families. These guys are all playing, but they sound totally fierce. Compress a little, pitch down a little, all fun.
These are wonderful recordings of dogs. Very scary very vocal very violent. Really good deep growling with lots of character. Just a joy to design with.
I will keep adding to this, these are the winds I always wish I had. No “huge gale force crap” here. These are all gentle lonely winds, with and without organic material.
I don’t know how else to say this is a great collection of soft deep winds. Perfect for quiet details with lots of emotion.
One of the best recordings I have ever done. These are 15 or so 500 – 600 Lb Pigs getting angry at me for recording them. For me, these are beautiful and for sound design, they are the best.
What else can I add to this? It’s literally WONDERFUL.
Slapstick Comedy – The three stooges when you can’t get the three stooges. Sounds in the library include clown horns, slides, sirens, whistles, squeaks, boiiiings and lots of other goofy and slapsticky sounds!
Huge deep and textural organic whoosh by’s. These are un-altered but a total blast. Want more fun, just (again) compress and pitch to fit, and hell, maybe add a little distortion.
A great collection of organic sliding whooshes. They sound great, have lots of movement and are almost always complicated movements not just simple whoosh by’s.

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.
