The idea behind this project was to gather a wide assortment of objects like saws, scissors and chalks, and to record their acoustic interaction with surfaces such as wood, glass, metal, concrete and gravel. We even came to vandalize a few musical instruments (snare drums, oriental percussions, cymbals and more) with hammers and knives in order to capture weird noises and unique musical qualities.

High-performance sound recording room
All recording sessions have been carried out in an acoustically treated room. We mostly recorded from a close perspective in order to capture dry and solid material that will allow you to apply your preferred amount of reverb or any other effect in post-production or sound design project.
The sounds have been recorded with mono compatible configurations and contact mics, and each one of those sounds is offered with a multitude of variations, making them versatile enough to cover the needs of a big production.
Well-grounded folder structure, ease of use
The library is organized in frequencies of wood, glass, metal, plastic, concrete, cardboard and more.
