Bobsleighs and Skeletons
Bob Skeleton library delivers exciting action sounds of Two Men Bob and Skeleton heroes that go down the track with more than 100 kilometers/hour.
The sounds of this library were taken from 9 spots along a track in Altenberg in the south of Germany. Each take is sorted and meta-tagged by recording spot and with this content you are able to assemble a complete run from start to finish or even to extend it by easily combining start sceneries, energetic passes in different speeds and noisy brakings down in the valley.
Furthermore Bob Skeleton´s content is an inspiring resource for sound mangling experiments and artificial foley design.SKU: D-BAS

City Traffic brings the daily noise of Berlin to your library. It delivers 10 different locations – split into 55 single takes with metadata embedded.
The library contains recordings of main roads during the morning rush hour, when the trolley car rumbles over the rails and the trucks are roaring through the kettles. In between a bunch of honking mopeds and cars with broken exhaust pipes are fighting for their space. Commuter trains are crossing every minute, the omnibus arrives just in time and the long-distance trains pass the station with squeaking brakes. In the evening it is rainy and at least the suburb calms down a little bit.SKU: D-CT

Distant City Ambiences (3 channel)
Distant City Ambiences introduces the sounds of the ever-present noisefloor that is generated by the life in a modern city.
Several spots around the hills along Dresden/Germany have been visited in order to record these noisefloors from a distance.
All recordings are made with a 3-channel setup of Sennheiser MKH8020 / 8040 microphones that are able to capture the finest nuances which are often hidden by an aggressive compound of ever roaring engines, passing airplanes, trains and other acoustic emissions.
The library features 16 different locations that were visited several times between October and December 2015. Each place was recorded at different day and night times so that an entire 24h cycle of city ambiences is covered.SKU: D-DCA3

It has huge production lines where laminate of all types is manufactured by almost completely automated machineries and robotics.
The library contains 64 stereo takes gathered at 31 spots inside the main production hall and from across the factory premises.

Industrial Building – 4 Channel Room Tones
ROOM TONES – Industrial Building delivers hugely atmospheric ambience recordings gathered in an 80s Industrial Building in the east of Dresden, Germany.
The library sounds were captured with a 4 channel 60 cm IRT cross and 4 Sennheiser MKH8020 omnis mounted. The recordings took place on a stormy and rainy Sunday. Due to the blank surfaces inside the building, thin single-glass windows and large air shafts, the weather elements got massively amplified by walls and floors.SKU: D-IB4CRT

Express, Freight and Passenger Trains
Passing Trains is a new library that features impressive sounds of Express, Freight, and Passenger trains that approach, pass, stop and pull out.
The recordings took place at several isolated spots in Saxon Switzerland near Dresden. This rock formation is cut by a river that formed a deep valley where the rails snake along.
Due to the complex reflection patterns caused by the rock walls, some of the included takes have amazing long tails of up 3 minutes. These tails sound like otherworldly swells of approaching iron and steel. Passing Trains also contains some impressive close-ups that were taken with lavaliers and contact microphones attached directly at the rail.SKU: D-PT

Room Tones – Office Building
Office Building features the ambiences one can hear sometimes around midnight or in the early morning hours.
During these times employees are usually at home and only service staffs are around so that the building can unfold its own sounds of ventilations, elevators and wind that blows through tilted windows. Automatic switches occasionally ignite neon lights along the floors or elevator doors open from out of nowhere.
The library contains 79 files in 5 categories: DOORS, ELEVATORS, NEON LIGHTS, ROOM TONES plus several takes from the building´s EXTERIOR surroundings.SKU: D-RTOB

Urban Crows is a library full of interesting sounds of single crows and swarms.
These proud birds deserve a lot more attention than they usually get. They are amazingly intelligent, social and by no means aggressive or monotonous when it comes to their communication capabilities.
The library evolved throughout winter 2015/16 and was taken from the attic of a house surrounded by trees were the crows frequently stayed overnight. So it was a great pleasure to record them arriving in the evenings as well as hearing them chatting during the dawn. They have a huge arsenal of clearly distinguishable single caws, funny sighs or nervous screams that often evolved to a huge cluster of noises that became stronger when the church bells began to ring and the sun came up.SKU: D-UC
Ambient & Atmospheric, Drones, Industrial, Sound Pack, Whooshes
The Wind Turbines library introduces the sounds of fizzling propeller blades, rotating nacelles, humming transformer stations, mysterious drones and other mechanic noises gathered from inside wind turbine towers.

The library is organized into 7 themes that include takes with a length from 19 seconds to more than 2 minutes.SKU: D-WT
