Turning Japanese by Smackheads
This library contains an eclectic collection of sounds sourced on a recent trip to Japan. It’s an auditory sampler of the beauty and stillness as well as the chaos and busyness of Japan, from elevator rides to fish markets, temples, busy streets and mountain streams.

Are You Picking Up What I’m Putting Down by Smackheads
This library is all about picking stuff up and putting it down, whilst you rub your beard, pop pills and type with your toes. It’s a collection of foley sounds that we always seem to need, but often can’t find. Each track includes multiple movements of the object in question. The recordings are mono and unprocessed, so they sound natural and can be easily placed in your stereo field.
(2 mono WAV Files, 362MB, 24bit/48 kHz)
99 Problems But A Whoosh Ain’t One by Smackheads
Everyone needs some good whooshing, but sometimes you just want a whoosh that will cut right through the crap. This pack does not contain earth moving cinematic slams, but rather crispy, bright, swishes, swooshes and whooshes designed for television, radio and internet use. We figured 99 whooshes was a good start to get you out of trouble, and we’ve provided a wide range of sounds, from nice clean wipes and slides to more complex textural sounds. Each file contains a single whoosh so you can grab the one you like and throw it on your timeline.
(99 WAV Files, 24 bit/48kHz)
Raceday _ Motorcyles by Smackheads
Motorcycles go fast and stuff, especially on the racetrack. Here we have the 300cc, 600cc, 1000cc and Moto 3 Classes recorded on the Hairpin Exit, Straight and Fast Turns. Dudes going at it solo and some preferring a bit of group action. They sound fast and powerful, except maybe the Moto 3 class which sounds a little like a small prop plane.
(90 WAV Files, 530MB, 24Bit/48kHz)
Tech Tech Tech Data by Smackheads
A library designed for fancy pants computer read-outs and jazzy interface buttons. All files are flawlessly loop-able so no matter how long that data needs to keep on flowing, you’re covered. Plenty of different styles from classical digital sounds, to lighter, funnier readouts and even dangerously aggressive ones. It pretty much covers most situations.
(71 WAV Files, 24Bit/48kHz)
