New libraries have been released.
Daniel Gooding launches Affordable Audio 4 Everyone, with the introduction of The Magic ToyBox, a SFX library released as “pay as you can” model. Any purchase over $5 will go to charity.
From the great depths of the basement, came forth the sounds of toys, and games of old. Over 320 recordings of 22 different wonderful sounding toys, and games plus a few extras found in the toybox. Over 80 designed sounds to add to the mix, and show many of the possibilities. Each File is recorded in 24-bit 96kHz. All sounds were recorded with a Rode NTK Condenser mic, with an Apogee One Pre-amp.

Jon Tidey of Audio Geek Zine has released Springs, his first sfx collection, aimed to musicians and sound designers.
HD Quality Spring hits, scrapes, squeals, drones and rattles from two unique spring sources. The first is an old rusty spring of unknown origin with a very dark tone that squeals when you rub it wrong. The other is a vintage Accutronics Spring Reverb tank with a much looser spring and very bright tone. The reverb tank was recorded separately in both mono and stereo. Slow them down, add a touch of reverb and delay, and you’ve got instant horror suspense. The samples in this pack were recorded at 24 bit, 96kHz with plenty of headroom and are edited but otherwise unprocessed.
Last but not least, take a look at these two libraries coming:
A preview of the mangled metal library that will be released soon at The Recordist.
and Hologram Room vol 1, the first sfx library of U.S.O Project.
