Lots of great new sound effects libraries were released by the indie community, and they’re going to make you want to take a vacation! You’ll hear calm ambiences from Tasmania, sounds from northern fishing villages in Norway, and waves along the shores of the Norwegian Sea. You’ll also hear sounds of the inner-workings of an Arvor 215 fishing boat and an ERF E14 tractor-trailer, a detailed library of gutters and drains, the delicate tones of wine glasses, experimental clocks, and a sci-fi pack that get you everything from guns to interfaces. You’re in for a mid-week treat! Clocks Vol. 2
'Clocks Vol. 2' is the second installment of Badlands Sound's experimental timekeeper library. Each of its 33 files is one minute of loopable ticking sounds that came from metal, plastic, a metronome, and a grandfather clock. They were also recorded at 96kHz giving you the chance to create even more types of clocks. If you're looking for a memorable tick-tock sound for your project, look no further.
