One hundred ambiences. From English pubs and cafes to Charles Bridge in Prague to a rooftop on Madison Avenue and the pastoral city ambience of Central Park. Great background ambiences for film, TV, games and many other uses.
Sounds from a classic red phone box.
The classic red phone box is something that has been part of the landscape, here in Britain, for all of my life and long before. I decided to capture as many sounds from them as I could before they disappear from use. In this pack you will find such sounds as…
The door opening and closing, a tapping on the window (this could often be heard if you took too long on a call and the next person on line was getting impatient), phone rings and dialling (current and vintage), a man talking away in a phone box, the operator answering a call, room tones and more. Most of these sounds will also be ok for anything visuals that portray the less attractive ‘modern’ glass booths that first appeared in the mid 80s.
All the sounds you need for a basic Blackjack game. Voice files are ‘Aces’ – ’21’, ‘Blackjack’ ‘Place Your Bets Please’ and more. Some UI sounds for various interactions and some card deal sounds. See list for full soundset.
All the sounds you need for a basic roulette app. Separate files which can be concatenated depending on the gambling results. Voice files are 0 – 36, Odd, Even, First Twelve, Neighbour bets and many more. Some UI sounds for various interactions and some real-world roulette wheel sounds.
Cyberpunk Sci-Fi is a collection of UI, voice, ambience, atmospheric and futuristic craft sounds that could be ideal to bring your dystopian project to life. Many of the sounds are open to interpretation, UI and vehicle sounds could be swapped around to your liking; this is the future after all.
This library features a woman making as many vocal sounds as possible, without saying any actual words. F±rom blowing a ‘raspberry’, to coughing, laughing, crying, cheering booing and much more. Good ‘Emotes’ for video game or animation usage.
This library features a man making as many vocal sounds as possible, without saying any actual words. From cowboy whoops to coughing, laughing, crying, cheering booing and much more. Good ‘Emotes’ for video game or animation usage.
One for adults only! A collection of erotic female vocalizations.
A collection of short vocalizations from four females aged 10 to 30. Efforts, growls, laughs, cheers, hits, jeers, boos, raspberries, sneezes and more. All useful for video game, app or cartoon characters.
A collection of gardening related sounds. Most of the sounds, such as digging soil, pruning roses, raking leaves, mowing grass and leaf blowing are recorded in a domestic garden. There are also some larger scale public garden sounds such as wood chipping, a sprinkler and chainsaws and there are also some ambiences of a garden centre store.
All recorded in England.
A collection of spooky scary sounds, ideal for your video game, film, TV show, radio play or any other project. Mostly classic horror style.
What is LEAKED NOISE? Well, in the case of this sound pack, it is the sound that is somewhat removed from the listener. It might be the people upstairs having a blazing argument (and later on when they have made up, getting amorous), the garage band next door rehearsing their songs, the kid in the basement practicing drums or the one down the school hall practising flute. In this pack, you will find lots of LEAKED NOISE that might be just right for your project, be it TV, film, radio, videogame or theatre.
‘Quiet’ and ‘London’. Not two words that go together very often these days. But now…near empty bus and train stations, a market usually bustling with buyers. Commuter-free trains and tubes, empty streets. For a full list of sounds see the attached excel doc.
86 sounds of a British mid-size family 2017 1.6 litre manual car. Doors, windows, seat, horn, wipers, glovebox, trunk, hood, driving and more. Nice clean new sounds, recorded in the Summer of 2017.
Three old style British Radio broadcasts. I have voiced and processed them to sound authentic for the respective eras.
• 1939 wartime news broadcast.
• 1962 weather report on the severe winter of the time.
• A 70s pirate radio style monologue.
Could be good for your radio, TV, film, animation or theatre project.
A quiet English town in the springtime. Public parks, a gentle flowing river, quiet streets, a young skateboarder rolls up and down. Listen to the forest on the edge of town with tweeting birds and breeze through the trees. No cars are in the car park. The groundskeeper mows the lawn by the bowling green and the water sprinkler inches along the lawn and church bells ring out. 22 ambiences, details of which can be seen in the excel document.
A man with a neutral English accent counts from zero to one hundred. Then counts in hundreds to one thousand. Then counts in thousands to ten thousand. Using the various files you can concatenate the files to read any number between 0-10,999 (and beyond if you fancy some creative editing).
Useful for all sorts of games, apps and many other projects.
THE ELEVATOR SPEAKS is a sound pack that has a neutral male English voice reading floors and levels up to 100. Beyond the 100th floor you can use the One Hundred And, Two Hundred And etc up to floor One Thousand, to concatenate the speech files. I.e 'level two hundred and ten' or 'three hundred and fiftieth floor.'
The voice files are bespoke, recorded for this sound pack and ok to use in any project or indeed, elevator. PLEASE NOTE I have duplicated the VO files, one set is processed to sound as though they are coming through a small speaker, one set are as recorded, unprocessed for you to use as is or process as desired.
There are also a few sound effects. An elevator travelling, doors and a button press.
Get the many sounds of a British house. Doors, windows, stairs, vacuum cleaner, cooking, bath, mowing the lawn, washing up and much more.
A collection of vintage toy sounds. From the grating noise of a balloon being rubbed, to the childhood memory evoking sounds of a pogo stick bouncing away, a toy train whirring around, a tin robot stomping along, to deliciously gross slime; these sounds may be just what you need for your game, video, film or animation.
Welcome to my ‘TRAIN ANNOUNCEMENTS CONCATENATION KIT’. What does that mean? Well, it means you can use the words, numbers and phrases I have created to make your own station announcements, using whichever DAW you like to use.
With 90 popular UK stations phrases such as ‘We’re sorry to announce that the…’, ‘fast train’ slow train’ ‘is now boarding’ and ‘…has been cancelled’ you can create thousands of combinations of train times and destinations. I’ve made a couple of pre-canned ones for you as a sample and put one station background ambience in there too. All the VO is in a RP (well spoken) English male voice.
Vintage Air Travel – Planes, airports, stewardesses, pilots, announcements and more.
This pack contains some of the sounds associated with vintage air travel. Not a specific decade (some parts will be suitable for a contemporary setting), but think of the film ‘Catch Me If You Can’, 60s 70s 80s. An era when smoking was still allowed on planes, when PAN AM and TWA ruled the skies. I have created these ambiences, voices and sounds to suit that era.
There are two ‘tourist information’ tapes, based on the audio that would have accompanied a slide show for visitors to London and Los Angeles.
There are public address announcements that you might hear in an airport.
There’s stewardess VO as heard in the cabin of a jumbo jet and stewardess greetings as you board. A few pilot announcements, sounds of busy jumbo jets in-flight from a passenger perspective. A ride in a Cessna, with pilot chatter, planes passing overhead and more. For a full list of sounds, view the excel document, and play the preview file for a taster.
This library gets you the sounds of record players, a gramophone, tape decks, a VCR, a movie projector, a TV and more. All bespoke recordings that I have just captured especially for this sound pack. May be just the thing you need to help you create the sound for that next John Le Carre TV or movie adaptation.
Old answering machine voice messages.
I have written and created these authentic sounding answerphone messages. There are male and female British accented messages, the content of which is typical for the period that people used answering machines. No mention of cellphones or social media here. Three voice actors, two male, one female are reading from the same script, with a few variations.
Good for use in TV, film, theatre production, video games, animation and more.
The messages are all recorded on a genuine old machine, so they will be lo-fi.
There are also some sounds of answerphone beeps, tape inserting and ejecting and tape cueing.

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.
