It’s encouraging to see that the independent sound library boom is continuing throughout February. On average, field recordists and sound designers are releasing about a half dozen sound libraries a week. Today’s post presents recent releases from one popular category: Sound Design.
User Interface Sound FX
There’s been a lot of talk about SoundMorph’s release of Modular UI (400 sounds, 5.7 gigabytes, $99.00).
Crafted by respected sound designer Richard Devine, the bundle features trickling beeps, robotic accents, swipes, and buzzes. The clips are the product of both analogue and digital processing from a Eurorack synth.
The SoundCloud preview impresses with a moody, detailed, and varied montage of clips.
The library was explored in an interview by A Sound Effect.
