Royalty Free Sound Effects & Sound Libraries
I recently added the SOMA Ether V2 to my travel kit and it has quickly become an exciting tool to capture electromagnetic fields and create a massive new free sound effects library. I have published several electromagnetic sound libraries using the LOM Priezor and Electroslush Mini City and I am always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to record sound. The Soma Ether offers a rich and thick sound, making it a great alternative.
In addition to the Ether, you will need 2 AAA batteries and an extra cable. I use it with a Zoom F6, but it can also be used with a Zoom H1n and an auxiliary cable. One of the biggest advantages of the Ether is its compact size, making it easier to record in various locations such as a subway station or shopping mall without drawing attention. The Ether allows you to set the high-frequency intensity and volume, but it is important to be careful and use headphones and earplugs to protect your hearing.
The massive 4Gb sample library includes 53 recordings of different lights, power switches, MacBooks, ovens, water cookers, toasters, power supply boxes, and car electromagnetic sound effects. All files are recorded at 192kHz 24bit (EMF Sound Library 32bit) with a frequency range below 1kHz and beyond 70kHz, offering endless opportunities for creative processing.
Who would have thought a handy sound recorder in Cambodia would lead us here?
Hi there we’re Marcel and Libby and every sound on this site has been recorded by us. For nearly 7 years, we’ve been traveling around the world recording unique sounds for others to use!
