The Perfect Ambience Kit and Beyond

As with all our Ambience Kits, this library contains different kinds of assets to help you compose custom soundscapes or create new layered sound effects that fit your project perfectly:

  • Ready-made scenes in StereoSurround, and Ambisonic formats, produced with our innovative True3D Audio™ mixing system (check the Unique Features section below).

  • Individual elements in the form of mono and stereo one-shots and loops, dereverberated or diffused to integrate with any virtual acoustics you use in your project (reverb processors, occlusion filters, etc.).

  • Noiseprints (aka roomtones) that are very useful as a base texture to add elements on top (to create your own ambience loops) or use them creatively in other ways (e.g., vocoding to create monster voices, filtering and distortion to create engines, weapons, otherworldly drones, and more).

  • Reverberation IRs and occlusion IRs (a first), so you can use them with convolution in your projects to create ultra-realistic experiences (you will need a convolution filter that loads custom samples to use those).

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.

Scene Analysis

A protocol for capturing, and documenting a location, to extract elements, model scenes, analyze sound behavior and synthesize new elements. Learn More >>


Our FocusBlur™ process defocuses the localization cues in soundscape or music material, to create material more suited for a background layer. Learn More >>


We dereverberate our recordings to get them as anechoic as they get. We also flatten any coloring added by microphones, preamps, etc. Revealing the source’s pure sound means better integration with reverb processors, occlusion filters, 3D audio engines, and a more immersive audio experience for the end user. Learn More >>

Refined Content​

Meticulous trimming, seamless looping, and detailed fading. All those results in oneshots that perfectly sync with visuals, and loops that cycle seamlessly in any playback scenario. What you get is content that just sounds great and cuts through the mix. Learn More >>


AuthorNorm™ is a perceived loudness normalization protocol that fuses the natural behavior of sound in nature and how we use sound in digital media authoring. Designed to normalize audio assets used in the production and post-production stages, it’s perfect for any media authoring work. Learn More >>

HDR Audio

Our end-to-end high dynamic range pipeline yields crystal clear sound with more detail, punchier attacks, and smoother fades, that sound great across any playback scenario. Learn More >>


To ensure easy ingestion in your project and maximum scope coverage, we regularly test our sound libraries with the pipelines below.

We follow industry-standard formats, so you should be able to use our audio assets in any pipeline. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
