You’ll see how we’ve used the Anticipation, Statement, and Archetype SFX libraries across many of our most popular videos and learn 6 big ideas for cinematic sound design.
You have a vision. Not just for how your project will look, but for how it will feel. Strong visuals grab your viewer’s attention, but proper sound design is essential for a visceral experience.
Archetype SFX offers iconic sound effects for your weighty, powerful projects.
We strove to keep a certain rawness to the sounds. They are not so over-produced, which helps them work well in a huge variety of projects.
The clips are great individually, but are made for mixing and matching. You can create interesting new sounds when you combine them with other sounds from the library.
With 120 original effects across 6 useful categories, you’ll be able to quickly find the perfect sounds.
Each sound comes in five variations: Normal, Analog, Distortion, Silk, and Space. Easily mix-and-match between variations to create unique, customized sounds.
The sounds are professionally mastered and compatible with all major editing platforms, including Adobe Premiere, Final Cut X, DaVinci Resolve, and more.
Our mobile app is not included. The subscription on our website and the subscription in our mobile app are entirely separate.
*Our Elite Membership offer the best value for teams with 5 or more people.
