|Library||Description||Publisher||Sounds||Size (GB)||Metadata||Category||Price||Sampling Rate||Bit Depth||Channels||Takes||File Format||Metadata Type|
|Cassette Deck||Cassette Deck is a set of sounds collected from a small group of analog cassette players. It’s filled with great mechanical buttons and switches, latches, a few motors at different speeds, and multiple microphones/perspectives per take. Great if you’re building some mechanical interfaces!||Dynamic Interference||91||2.3||√||Technology, Electronics||$45.00||192||24||–||324||–||–|
|Fabric||By no means would I call this library “exhaustive” (nothing can truly replace the character of well performed foley), but it is very much “extensive.” DynInt001 – Fabric is a large collection of fabric handling and movement recording, including rips and tears, with minimal processing. It has been designed as a construction kit to allow you to build the sounds you need for your projects. The natural dynamic ranges of these recordings have been preserved; absolutely no compression or limiting has been applied to any of the sounds you’ll find in this library. Fabric types include Burlap, Cotton, Linen, Nylon, Silk, and blends: such as Cotton/Linen and Polyester/Rayon. Multiple weaves and weights of cotton can be found in the library as well: Denim, Canvas, Heavy and Light Cotton, Soft Cotton, Pilled, Herringbone and Ripstop. […which is definitely not rip “proof,” by the way. 😉 ] Also included is a small collection of fasteners: Velcro, Snap Buttons and Zippers. Overall, it’s a library designed to give you a bit more flexibility when a dedicated foley artist or recording space aren’t available.||Dynamic Interference||1870||6.5||√||Cloth, Leather||$200.00||96||24||–||9000||–||–|
|Galapagos Islands||Back in 2011, my wife and I took a trip to the Galapagos Islands. Naturally, I at least brought a little recorder with me. 😉
I brought back a small set of recordings as souvenirs, and I decided to share them with the community through my blog. They’re still free for all who are interested, and you can download them simply by adding them to your cart below.

|Middle Eastern Ambiences||A collection of stereo urban ambiences, recorded in Cairo and Dubai, where you’ll find traffic, Arabic walla, and the Call to Prayer.||Dynamic Interference||56||2.870||√||Ambience||$70.00||96||24||Unknown||56||Unknown||–|
|Stately Museums||The Smithsonian is quite possibly the largest network of museums in the world. It’s facilities can be found scattered throughout the Washington, DC, area, but it is the museums on the National Mall and the Zoo in Adams Morgan that attract the most visitors. Each building has its own distinctive sound; both when open and closed. None of them are ever truly empty though, and the sparse and occasional sounds of voices and activity that can be heard in the museums when they are closed to the public gives a distinctly different impression. The Zoo provides its own unique backdrop, being a space devoted to nature in the center of urban sprawl. When was the last time you heard wolves howling amidst the sound of a city’s hum? You can here!
This library includes sounds from the Museum of Natural History, Museum of American History, Museum of Air and Space, Museum of the American Indian, The Freer Gallery, the subterranean exhibits of the Sackler Gallery and the Museum of African Art, the Administrative Ripley Center, and the National Zoo. All told, three and a half hours of unique ambiences!
|Submarine Switches||This library is loaded with some beefy, old-school, mechanical interfacing: buttons, switches, knobs and levers.||Dynamic Interference||22||0.131||√||Technology, Electronics||$25.00||96||24||–||110||–||–|
|Weapon Foley||This is a collection of all of the mechanical sounds you can get out of handling the specific weapons.
Included are sounds from the Glock 9mm, Walther P22, Smith and Wesson .38 revolver, Heckler and Koch MP4, M4 Carbine and M24 Sniper Weapon System.
