Download royalty-free industrial sound effects. The advent of the industrial revolution brought about a change no one could have imagined : The end of silence. We went underground and scaled giant constructions to give you access to unique and innovative sound effects. From abandoned factory ambiences to the sounds of heavy machinery, the sound effects contained in our sample packs will be especially useful for post-production studios and will fit perfectly into movies, documentaries and video games.
We have recorded many different indoor and outdoor environments from different angles and perspectives to give you as many options as possible. Our sounds originated from active factories with huge production lines, but also mining sites and deserted establishments, devoid of any living soul and normally closed to the public. From busy and noisy to deserted and desolate, we give you access to a multitude of industrial background sound recordings to bring your environments to life and tailor them to your projects, such as railroad maintenance and streetcar repair shops - Refineries turning crude oil into gasoline and kerosene - Power plants burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas to generate electricity - Giant cement processing and rock crushing facilities - Metallurgical and steel plants, as well as forges and foundries turning crude iron into iron bars.
We have also captured quiet atmospheres with large, spacious reverberations from empty warehouses and huge halls, but also the buzz of ventilation systems, the whirr of air-conditioning units, the rumble of electric fans and the hum of generators. You'll also find dark corridors and noisy underground passages in the basements of water treatment plants, where you can hear the roar of pressurized hydraulic turbines and the gurgling of water coming out of massive pumping systems and flowing through huge pipes. You'll also hear the squeaks and scrapes of obsolete machinery, the groans of rusty overhead cranes in operation, and the squeals of dusty aerial platforms and rickety elevators. In addition, you will discover sound libraries containing high-pitched hisses from compressed air in pneumatic systems, and hisses as gas rushes through both massive and tiny pipes.
A material to transform and merge : Our sound libraries also offer a series of isolated components to assemble the environment you envision with multiple layers and sound sources. You can flesh out your ambient room tones and soundscapes with distinct and detailed sounds such as the movement of old industrial gates, the locking and unlocking of doors, the impact of tools on iron plates and the violent banging of steel sheets. Rock chips and metal splinters will be particularly useful for enhancing scenes of mining and car wrecks. All of the included audio clips are available in high definition and are ready to use on their own or as part of a more complex sound design.
