Our microphones were at the center of chaos for this one, as we captured the renowned Greek Riots of 2008!

A collection of the ambient sounds from urban environments in a state of violent public disturbances, with recordings of marches and riots.

Rain rocks and Molotov cocktail bombs on your scenes and unleash true chaos. Bring your players face to face with dozens of angry troublemakers and twitchy anti-riot police, with its hair-raising atmospheres of real-life riots. Fuming roadblocks, flaming tires, debris, broken glass, shattered window panes, and legions of demonstrators, with loud and powerful recordings taken from the heart of populous protests.

And that is only half of it.

The state of violent public disturbances also includes recordings of protests and other mass assemblies.

You get exhilarating rebellious atmospheres of thousands of disgruntled people, clapping, whistling, and shouting profane slogans.

Those are rare high-quality recordings you won't find elsewhere. Made by our courageous sound hunter Antonis Koutelias, in the heart of the dangerous adrenaline-driven atmospheres of violent crowds.

Contents and organization

We take extra care to make it easy to find the sounds you need and intuitively browse the contents. Depending on the theme and content, we use various ways to organize the content. Different content categories and channel formats are organized in folders. Useful content properties are included in the filenames (i.e., Loop, Complex, Diffused, DoplerInversed, etc.). Different types of the same phenomenon are denoted with capital letters, and same-type variations are enumerated with two-digit incremental numbers.

Professional Grade - Low Cost

Low cost is almost automatically associated with low quality and less value; however, this is an unfair correlation. We constantly use critical thinking to reduce the cost of production while maintaining, or even increasing, the quality we deliver. Our quality-driven culture results in professional-grade sound libraries with 10x or 20x lower prices than any high-quality competitor.
