Scratches library is a comprehensive library of 700 recordings of scrapes, cuts, scuffs, peelings and rubs. This high-quality collection of versatile sounds will make skin crawl and hairs stand on end.

Sounds creepy? Listen to audio previews below

The idea behind this project was to gather a wide assortment of objects like saws, scissors and chalks, and to record their acoustic interaction with surfaces such as wood, glass, metal, concrete and gravel. We even came to vandalize a few musical instruments (snare drums, oriental percussions, cymbals and more) with hammers and knives in order to capture weird noises and unique musical qualities.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

High-performance sound recording room
All recording sessions have been carried out in an acoustically treated room. We mostly recorded from a close perspective to provide you dry and solid material to apply your own amount of reverb or any other effect in post-production or sound design project.

Creative Freedom
The sounds have been recorded with mono compatible configurations and contact mics, with enough variations of the same sound, in order to give you all the freedom and possibilities that you would need to work in a big production.

Well grounded folder structure, ease of use
The library is organized in frequencies of wood, glass, metal, plastic, concrete, cardboard and more.
