Award winning sound designer, field recordist and composer based in Bristol, UK.
All my libraries contain extensive metadata in broadcast wave format and most contain metadata in soundminer proprietary format too.
Feel free to get in touch about libraries, design work or just to say hi at my site: submergedtapes.com
A library of designed ambiences, drones and background textures. Includes designed winds, underwater sounds and more abstract backgrounds.
A collection of fine bleeps and bloops from two vintage toy synthesizers, a Major Morgan and a Stylophone.
Both synths were modified to coax some more unusual/interesting sounds out of them and the library includes some bonus designed sounds to give some inspiration to designers for the direction these sounds could be pushed in.
All sounds contain extensive metadata in both soundminer proprietary format and broadcast wave format to make finding these sounds and getting them into your project as easy as possible!
A full library of recordings from a 2009 Ford Fusion Plus with a 1.6 litre Duratec petrol engine. Includes door opens and closes, windows up and down, seatbelts, switches, buttons, engine turn key, start and idle, revs and more. Recordings made using Sennheiser MKH416, 8050 and Rode NT5 mics into a Zoom F8 and F4, plus some additional recordings using a JRF contact mic.
Also includes three 7+ minute continuous driving interior ambisonics (Ambix B format) recordings with synced mono engine bay recordings. Covering turn key and start, driving through the countryside up to 60mph on dual carriageway, into the city and stopping. Made with Sennheiser Ambeo and ME2 mics.
If you need a no-nonsense, great quality library of an ordinary car, not a fancy flashy sports car as I often do, then this is the library for you! Everything is delivered in 24 Bit / 192 kHz making it useful for sound design purposes too. Need a massive metal impact? Pitch down one of those doors!
All files contain extensive metadata in both Soundminer and BWAV formats.
Hopefully, the name says it all. I took a claw hammer, saw, metal bar and my hands to various different types of polystyrene (packing peanuts, big stiff packing material and softer packing material) and wrenched lots of weird sounds out of them. Plenty of squeaky gross crunches and cracks useful for sweetening bone breaks, impacts and other gore stuff if you’re bored of celery and cabbages! Also good for sweetening up other foley stuff too and lots of the recordings contain lots of high frequency, squealy material which is fun for pitching. I included some designed stuff as well including a few UI bits, some pitched impacts, weird alien bug wings and various other bits and bobs. Recorded at 96Khz/24 Bit and processed in Reaper and RX.
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.
