About the Sound Effects Library

shards-thumbThe Shards: Broken Glass library contains 229 sound effects recorded in high-quality 96k/24bit and a small bonus library of 23 extra files. This library was recorded outside on a very quiet day. iZotope RX was then used to eliminate the small amounts of background noise that was present. As a result, all the recordings are dry, clean and have no reverb.

The main library consists of: rummaging through broken glass with a metallic object, smashing broken shards of glass, breaking different size windows and pieces of glass, and hitting thick glass at different intensities without breaking it. The bonus library contains 21 different variations of a glass bottle breaking on rocks and two variations of a bottle bouncing off the rocks without breaking. The length of all the files ranges between 1 and 3 seconds long and metadata has been added to help you find the relevant files easier.
