This SFX library contains a wide range of reactions and emotional responses varying from quiet crowds, roared battle cries to a large selection of exclamations generated by a group of passionate theatrical actors in indoor venues.

Apart from the vocalizations, we’ve also included recordings of more unusual crowd ambiances like people walking around the mics, falling down, sitting down and getting up, jumping around, marching, or just being present in the space.

Crowds library is split into the following two parts:

Small Groups: Includes small groups of up to 30 people which you can layer together and quickly create the sound of any sized realistic groups of people.

Large Crowds: Brings pre-designed, easy-to-use sounds of medium to large crowds in various types of reactions, moods, and surroundings.

The Crowds library can be wonderfully paired with our previously released LAUGHS library, containing genuine waves of laughter of both single and large crowd voices (of many as 200 people) suitable for your sitcoms, comedy live shows, games, or other audiovisual productions. 

As a combo, these two libraries can provide great material for designing a wide range of reactions for projects requiring specific groups reactions or generic background walla.


You may want, also, to check out these two libraries we have on our catalog that’s all about basketball game crowd ambience and reactions (from 200 to over 5,000 people attending local and professional basketball matches), as well as isolated sounds of backboard hoops, swish nets, shoe squeaks, dribbles, and other related sounds.

Both libraries avoid any specific language, making it flexible and suitable for universal use.
