Sound Effect Libraries

Over the past few months we have added an incredible amount of sound effects libraries, field recordings and fx packs to Sampleism. We haven't had the space to showcase every collection as there has simply been too much content.

So, I decided to showcase some of the new developers, sound designers and recordists in this Sound Effects special post.

Label: Boombox Library

Boom Box Library

Boom Box Library is a sound effects library company devoted to creating high-quality pro sound libraries and corresponding custom-programmed sound design toolkits.

Robotic Creations

Featured Product: Robotic Creations - Heads Up Display

The Heads Up Display sound effects library is the first installment in the Robotic Creations Collection. Each library within the Robotic Creations Collection contains sound effects designed to match five different robotic personalities with their own unique sonic characteristics: Mimo, the robot buddy; Q5, the vintage robot; NGage, the exosuit; Gregory, the android; and Firewall, the mech suit.
Boom Box Library's sound design toolkits allow you to create endless variations, tailoring sounds specifically to the needs of your project.

All sound effects are pre-mapped to the sampler Kontakt by Native Instruments, and can be triggered with a MIDI keyboard or further manipulated with a tablet via our custom TouchOSC layouts. Together, these tools give you the hands on experience of performing live changes such as pitch and time alteration as well as playing back multiple layers of sounds at once.

Our Toolkits take you beyond simple editorial, giving you everything you need to design your own unique take on the Boom Box Library sound.
