THIS IS NOT A DRILL!

You can never have too many tools for sound design, whether rounding out a scene or layering and hammering out the perfect impact. This library is packed with over 250 files of manual tools, like hammers, ratchets, and screwdrivers, and manual motions, like chopping wood and smashing stones. Nearly 3 GB of sounds will add that extra umph, boom, or crack to give any sound that missing edge. You can be sure you’ll always have the sharpest tool in the shed.

What we recorded

We emptied our TOOLBOX to find everything we could to record: Hammers, Axes, Saws, Straps, Car Jacks, and more. Using a XY-Setup of two Sennheiser MKH 8040s and a MS-Setup with a Sennheiser MKH8050 and MKH30, we captured every rattle and smash we could make while keeping the recording as dry as possible.

What’s so special about this library?

This is a complete set of tools: We left nothing out from your grandpa’s shed. We’ve pulverized these tools in every way imaginable, from how they were meant to be used to possibly breaking some safety regulations, just to capture the right, pristinely dry sound, so that you can do what you need to do safely from your own home or office.

What does MICRO-BOOM mean?

MICRO-BOOM: Small But Excellent

Sometimes, a specific topic doesn’t offer as many different source recordings or designed sounds to make it a comprehensive Original BOOM Library package. That’s why we have our compact Micro-BOOM packs which contain sounds that received the same careful recording, cleaning and editing as our Original BOOM Library sound effects for a very low price.
