We have noticed a number of sound effects providers are putting out some free sound effect libraries or samplers for a limited period over the Christmas holiday period. Most of these are time limited so do not delay. Get them before they are gone.
Mindful Audio Holiday Freebies 2018
Last year George Vlad received a lot of great feedback for the 2017 Holiday Freebies library so he thought he would do it again. Over the past 12 months he has traveled to several countries and habitats, from the Arctic Circle to the Equator and from Eastern Europe to Western US. As a result he has released several libraries using recordings from these travels, and he is currently working on a few others that should be out soon.
The Mindful Audio Holiday Freebies 2018 contains 17 ambiences totaling more than 95 minutes, all at 24/96 quality and recorded in the following locations:
Congo Basin rainforest
Central African savanna
You can use these recordings in your projects as you’d use any commercial library, George asks that you do not repackage or sell them “as is”.
The files will be up for a couple of weeks (or until he runs out of bandwidth) so make sure you download them soon.
The Flusher From Collected Transients
Collected Transients describe this library as “A swirling collection of toilet flush sound effects.” They go onto to say…
That’s right: Toilets. You may only have one or two oval offices in your residence, but your library should be swirling with commode sound effects. You never know when a scene full of latrines will pop up, and you don’t want to find yourself flush out of sounds for the netty. Don’t let your loo-lacking library bog you down. Download The Flusher free of charge this holiday season!
The flusher contains toilets from apartments, hotels, houses, planes, and more captured across the world! Many toilet types are covered. Need a pressure assisted toilet? Got it. Tankless? Done. High flow? Yup. High efficiency? You bet. Vacuum? Absolutely… just don’t sit when you flush. Find out more on the metadata tab!
This library will only be available until December 31st 2018. After that it gets flushed down the drain… never to float to the surface again.
