This is a collection of Foley sounds from various hardware elements of physical user interfaces.

As the title says we have here a comprehensive library of sampled sounds of buttons, knobs, and switches of any kind from everyday objects we find around us, like audio amplifiers, camera tripods, phones, electric pianos, ovens, camera parts, flashlights, elevators, hard drives, bicycles, boilers, and more.

This collection is ideal if you are creating a project that contains the handling of equipment, a lot of switching boards, or realistic graphical user interfaces. Classic examples are adventure games, vehicle simulators, sci-fi movies, or even mobile apps that represent physical interfaces for training or entertainment.

As always we include many types for each kind of sound and many variations for each type, to provide enough variety for you to pick the best fit for your aesthetics and enough variations for realistic natural sound.

Use the various micro-sounds of this library to combine them into more complicated and custom interface elements or sounds of hardware objects moving and operating.

And why restrict your creativity to those kinds of events only?

With so many perfectly isolated hardware interface sounds you can create unique sound effects for contemporary weapons or their auxiliary equipment, strange contraptions, intricate machines and robots, and more.

Finally, as hardware user interface elements, in general, feature an abrupt sound and have very percussive and natural musical qualities, this collection can be the perfect way for music producers to create their signature sound in their favorite sampler, looper, or drum machine.

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.

Unique features

Achieve the best sound by taking advantage of this library’s innovative features.

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.
