  • Recorded by pioneer of film sound design, Ann Kroeber, the Ann’s Animals library showcases a unique variety of animal sounds and vocalizations. Including common, wild, and exotic creatures – ranging from pigs and frogs to capuchin monkeys, caribou and more – this special collection is equally useful and inspiring for practical sound editing and creative sound design.

    Animal recordings play a significant role in Kroeber’s sonic legacy, and she is widely celebrated for her natural approach and incredibly expressive results. Her sense of presence with the animals and finely tuned listening shines through in these sounds – from the gentle, subtle breaths and purrs of cheetahs to a sprawling chorus of jungle frogs. Create thoughtful and powerful creature designs with these characteristic animal roars, shrieks, snorts, cries, buzzes, and more.

    Following the acclaimed sound libraries Cinematic Winds, Industrial Sounds with Soul, Stallion, and Beautiful Bugs, Ann’s Animals is the fifth exclusive release by Pro Sound Effects curated from Sound Mountain: Kroeber’s venerable private recording collection created over decades of film sound work with her late husband, Alan Splet. Kroeber has since worked on or supplied sounds for film, television, and games – including 6 movies that won an Academy Award® in sound, and 7 additional nominations.

    Each sound file in this library is embedded with rich, detailed metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with descriptions that that go beyond the literal to detail the emotional power of these unique recordings.

  • Featuring 38 pristine nature recordings from remote locations across the U.S., Biophony delivers a diverse collection of ambient environmental sounds. Delivered in 24-bit/96kHz FuMa Ambisonics format as well as stereo, this library contains amphibians, sea animals, insects and other wildlife interacting within distinct biomes. Use these sounds to enliven your nature scenes with a rich, authentic ecological backdrop.

    To capture these sounds, recordist Jason Strawley and videographer Andrew Garraway traveled to four states from Florida to California with the goal of capturing a variety of ecosystems including swamps, ponds, and forests. The result is a dense collection of vibrant wildlife recordings brimming with life. According to Strawley, one of the most difficult aspects of the process was finding locations unaffected by human intervention, be it noise pollution or the overarching effects of climate change. In his own words:

    “Human-made noise pollution foiled many a recording, forcing us to travel to more and more remote locations. We should all be advocating to preserve more wild lands, but it’s not just about the land – we need to preserve the soundscape and darkscape as well. Some national parks are doing a great job with this and I hope we can contribute to awareness in some tiny way.”

    Each sound file is embedded with rich, descriptive metadata to help you find the exact ecosystem and animal recording you need.

    Key Features:

    • 38 sound effects (14.5GB)

  • The Foley Essentials sound effects library features over 90 lifelike recordings of everyday actions from Academy Award®-winning sound artists Mark Mangini and Richard L. Anderson. Craft your scenes with common Foley recordings like footsteps, cloth rustle, body grabs, and dozens of props to bring your everyday scenes to life.

    What is Foley? Foley is technically the act of recording sound effects performed in-sync to picture, using various props and surfaces, often on a Foley stage. For this library, these Foley-like sounds were recorded by Mangini and Anderson to fill out temp mixes of feature film projects before the traditional Foley process – with a focus on discrete actions within natural sonic environments.

  • Beef up your sound design with the ferocity of Gators – from beastly bellows and monstrous growls to aggressive hisses and vicious jaw snaps. This one-of-a-kind, exclusive speciality library delivers stunning alligator sound effects ready to add power and intensity your audio projects.

    And “one-of-a-kind” is no exaggeration. There’s a reason you will not find a similar collection dedicated to alligator or crocodile sound effects anywhere else. These sounds can not only be dangerous to record, but they are extremely difficult to capture as alligators are typically very stealthy, quiet creatures… except during mating season.

    Luckily, recordist Colin Hart embarked on several excursions to the swamps of Florida to develop a method for cueing the monstrous sounds from these cold-blooded beasts – so you don’t have to. After seven years (plus a mangled blimp, destroyed boom pole, JBL baby stroller, and a couple testing subwoofers from Boeing), these incredible alligator recordings are now available for your own projects.

    In addition to bellowing mating calls, warning hisses, terrifying snarls and more alligator sounds, the Gators library also provides partially submerged hydrophone recordings as well as marsh and bird ambiences.

    Add this rare secret weapon to your sound design toolset and give life to creatures, monsters, dragons, dinosaurs, crocodiles, and other beasts. The organic immensity of these sounds also make perfect layers for explosions, thunder, fire, engines and more.

    • 75 sound effects (520MB)

  • City Life LA Ambisonics Play Track 239 sounds included, 1139+ mins total From: $119

    The LA Ambisonics sound effects library is an extensive collection of 239 immersive urban ambience recordings from throughout the city of Los Angeles. Add these LA ambiences sounds to strengthen your scenes with an authentic city soundscape — from beach and boardwalk sounds, city and freeway traffic, to street and restaurant walla, plane pass bys, and more.

    Recorded by Academy Award®-winner Mark Mangini (Blade Runner 2049, Mad Max: Fury Road), LA Ambisonics was captured at various locations throughout Los Angeles including LAX, Venice Beach, Hollywood Boulevard, Union Station, Laurel Canyon and more. To capture these stunning ambiences, Mangini took the opportunity to think critically about what makes Los Angeles sound unique, and how to best achieve the immersion integral to the ambisonics format.

    “I’ve been a fan of Ambisonic recording for some time, having developed my own microphones and plugins, not only for their sonic verisimilitude but for their obvious potential in cinema sound. While ‘immersion’ is the word on everyone’s lips as a sonic panacea, there is a great deal of controversy about how best to achieve it. I believe that it is in the reproduction of a believable 360 degree sound field that one achieves the highest level of ‘immersion’ and Ambisonics is one of the most practical and sonically pleasing ways to get there.” – Mark Mangini

    Delivered in both Ambisonic and stereo formats, each audio file is embedded with rich descriptions for quick intuitive search results. This library includes SurroundZone2 software by TSL Products that allows you to control the Ambisonics files by pointing “virtual microphones” any direction with a wide range of polar patterns. Unparalleled flexibility lets users match backgrounds with the specific setting of any scene and decode to mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1 and beyond. These recordings are also perfect for 3D Audio applications including VR and 360º video.

  • London Ambisonics is a collection of 55 immersive city ambience recordings from the streets, parks and subways of London, England. Use these versatile sounds to enliven your scenes with an authentic city atmosphere. Recorded in 24-bit/96kHz with a Sennheiser AMBEO VR mic, London Ambisonics was captured at various locations throughout London including St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Palace Theatre, the River Thames and more. Detailed metadata includes coordinates and cross streets for maximum geographic clarity.

    To capture these stunning ambiences, recordist Matt Snedecor traversed London with the goal of capturing its essence. In his own words:

    “London, although there’s a lot of English, just has a different feel and sound than a major US city. So I was partly looking for urban sounds, but also getting the feel of the city itself. It was definitely not as big and loud as NYC and there’s also things like different sirens and horns than we have here.”

    This library includes SurroundZone2 software by TSL Products that allows you to control the Ambisonics files by pointing “virtual microphones” any direction with a wide range of polar patterns. Unparalleled flexibility lets users match backgrounds with the specific setting of any scene.

        • The Rare Animals library from Pro Sound Effects is a collection of unique animal sounds from field recordings around the world. They have been meticulously edited and mastered for cross-industry sound design usage from games to mobile/interactive and traditional film/broadcast.

          The Rare Animals sound effects library was built from one principal aim: To find, nurture and release rare animal sound effects into the wild. Pro Sound Effects sourced the nature catalogs and archives from its existing global partners for the rarest field recordings, the most unusual of which were hand-selected by Brooklyn Sound Society‘s Neil Benezra to remaster and restore. This collection of animal effects was edited and optimized for game and interactive industries in mind, so most are shorter, trigger-able sounds. The library also contains a collection of ambiences—longer, environmental sound effects that can be further edited, or used as backgrounds.

          Key Features:

          • Over 1,000 unique recordings
          • Optimum restoration, noise reduction (using the Cedar plug-in), equalization and mastering by Brooklyn Sound Society
          • Detailed metadata, including species categories, descriptions, plus the time and place of each effect’s recording 
          • Hand-picked rarities, from high-caliber archives and historical catalogs
