This is a collection of location foley sounds (anything we could find that makes sound) recorded over 3-year period in authentic historical houses and barns.
This includes 1700s peasant village houses, 1700s manor, 1850s farm, 1900s manor and 1930s cottage. These are recorded for film projects so they have the right cinematic feel, dynamic and variation.
The houses were full of period props, so the recordings are rich and have lots of details that take you to the right time and feel.
The library weighs in at more than 20 GB total, and features 5000+ sounds & 10 hours of recordings in 347 files.

As a bonus there are lots of open field oil shale mining sounds, with heavy machinery.
All the files have been recorded 96kHz/24bit with industry standard equipment – stereo (Sennheiser MKH 8020) plus mono for details (DPA 4017) Sound Devices Mixpre10T, and have added metadata.
This is a collection of snowy, icy, slushy, crunchy winter traffic. Single car passes, busy city roads, distant skylines, village roads, highways. All files are 96khz 24bit with metadata, and recorded with 2 x Sennheiser mkh 8040, mkh 416, Audio Technica BP4025 and Sony D100.
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.
