It has been a little while since the last SFX Independence post. So many new sfx libraries have come to our attention during that time that this roundup comes in two parts, designed to make it more digestible. Part 2 will follow later in the week.
Our aim is to provide readers information about the best and most innovative independent sound effects library available, so if you’d like your recently-released library to be considered for inclusion in the next roundup, all you need to do is fill in the Independent SFX Library submission form.

Who says the audio community doesn’t give you opportunities to go wild on the craziest shopping days (in the U.S. at least) of the year? [ed. Seriously, does anyone actually say that?]
We’ve spotted some deals you might be interested, and we’ll continue to update this post if we find anymore. If you spot one we haven’t feel free to share by leaving a comment.
Hit the jump to see what we’ve found so far…
This week was a triple-dose of released sound libraries for your aural pleasure.
First up is from TONSTURM:
With TONSTURM 08 I Morocco you get 61 Soundfiles in 5 Channel Surround Format. All the ambiences were recorded in Tangier, Essaouira and Marrakech, three very different Moroccan Cities.
For this surround ambience library we captured the beauty of the urban Arabic world of Morocco.
We visited three very different Moroccan cities, Marrakech, Essaouira and Tangier. These are all very colorful, lively and diverse cities, where we found a lot of unique places to capture these great surround ambiences. We captured sounds from the souks (markets), the medina (old town), the calls of muezzins, rooftop city ambiences and a lot more! Through some Maroccan relatives we were able to record at special locations where access is normally not possible.
We Recorded with a Double MS setup (Sennheiser MKH30, MKH8040, MKH8050) to be fast and flexible as the environment was very turbulent at times. We could easily change our position and were ready to start a recording within seconds to find the perfect spot and timeframe for each particular ambience.
Apart from beeing showered with old rotten fish blood everything went pretty well!
This library is well-suited for a wide number of different situations, as some of the sounds are more diffuse and could be used as general urban Arabic ambiences. In the old town where nearly no traffic is audible (except some mopeds from time to time) we were able to record some nice wallas and the bubbly hustle and bustle of the people.
We carefully encoded every ambience to a discret 5.0 channel file for convenience.
We offer an introductory price of $99 US instead of $̶̶1̶̶3̶̶9̶̶ US for the Surround version, and $79 US instead of $̶1̶̶0̶̶4̶̶ US for the Stereo version until the 5th of September! ….click here!
