There’s a whole heap of stuff going on in the independent SFX community that’s worth making note of. So, here goes…
New Sound Lab’s Optical Drives
This library features recordings of computer optical disc drives (two internal desktop CD/DVD-R and one internal laptop slim CD/DVD-R slot-load).
Two induction coil pickups were used to record the electromagnetic fields emitted by the drives, capturing a very unique set of sounds and textures. These range from sharp percussive bleeps, glitchy static and noise, to electromechanical motor sounds, and drones. You’ll find use for many applications, including UI interface design, transitions, sci-fi, robot/servo sounds, technology, and computer sound effects.
Recordings include all functions of the DVD drives, e.g. disc loading, reading, writing/burning, spin up/down, errors, and disc ejecting. Also, each drive was taken apart and manipulated to create additional sounds.

Here are all of the libraries of note we’ve spotted since the last round-up back in the beginning of April…in the order of most recent first (working from here…so forgive me if I’ve confused dates).
Presenting Machine Guns HD Pro Sound Effects Library. This 24-Bit/96kHz collection features four fully automatic weapons recorded at a wide open 400 acre ranch in North Idaho. With a mountain ridge in front and open field behind, the guns generated a breathtaking echo while at the same time the “close up and personal” microphones capture the intense muzzle blast and mechanics of each weapon in stunning detail.
