Holy moly was June busy with SFX libraries. Here are the ones that caught our eye in this July indie roundup.
Tremor by Tonsturm
This library features haunting rattle and earth shaking rumble sound effects. We did a lot of research and experimentation and finally came up with a very powerful and precise setup that enables us to make all sorts of objects and materials resonate and vibrate to specific sounds and frequencies. We transduced low frequent bass and impact sound waves via two high precision iBeam bass shakers, into huge objects like train wagons, wooden storage racks, big metal gates, but also smaller setups like wine glasses, telephones, plastic cases and and a lot more. With this library we captured all droning, rumble, rattle and shake sound effects one could ever wish for.
Cloth by The Soundcatcher
The Cloth sound effects library is dedicated to cloth and textile movement sound effects.
It features a wide range of different materials being handled, such as backpacks, pillows, sheets, leather belts and jackets, table cloths, shirts, canvases, gloves, rain jackets, chinos, jeans, pullovers and much more.
3D printer by Pasi Pitkanen
The 3D Printer library is a collection of high quality motor, servo and mechanical movement sounds that can help you make a nice looking robot sound like a mean killing machine. The library is also a great and affordable way to add uniqueness to your sound effects.
The Windshield by The Red libraries
‘The Windshield’ sound effects library is the first installment in a new ‘Car Damages Collection’ from Red Libraries – and it delivers wild glass destruction, captured from actual windshields breaking.
Ferrari Dino by Watson Wu
Get the roaring sounds of a 1974 Ferrari Dino. This Daytona 246 GT edition Italian made exotic car is a 5 speed manual mid-engine v6, and it’s known to be The Ferrari without an exterior Ferrari badge.
53 wave files were captured in 24 Bit, 96 kHz – and the combined recorded driving time is more than 28 minutes.
Glass Door Slides by Antisample
The glass door slides sound effects pack features 59 deep, rattling – and slightly reptilian – recordings, captured with a custom contact microphone.
The sound effects offer up lots of creative sound design uses, and work well when layered with another sound texture or material, and as a standalone sounds too. Samples were recorded at 24 Bit, 96 Khz.
Wood Creaks by Jordan Fehr FX
WOOD CREAKS is a collection of real recordings of old wood floors, boards, steps, and more – recorded in old (haunted?) houses in Central Ohio. Some of the files are tight on the source for applying your own reverbs to suit your needs, while others feature the space they lived in for maximum realism.
Creaks, Squeaks, Bends, Pulls, Groans, Pops, Rips, Ticks, Door Elements, Weight Shifts for use in Foley, and more.
