Sonomar Collection: Bells is your ultimate source for bell sound effects - featuring everything from pure, resonant tones to metallic hits, clanks, pings, and more. Whether used alone, layered, processed, or warped beyond recognition, these sounds cover a surprisingly broad range of sound design needs. Featuring 134 different bells recorded at ultra-high resolution with a variety of playing techniques, this library is a worthy addition to any sound designer’s toolset.
To create the library, Sonomar’s Martin Pinnsonault (CODA, Dallas Buyers Club) gathered an extensive collection of bells, including handbells of various sizes, jingling sleigh bells, counter-top call bells, electric fire bells, and hefty ship’s bells. The varied handbell selection includes specimens made of metal, porcelain, glass, and even clay, each with their own unique tonal signature. In addition to single hits and continuous ringing at different speeds and intensities, the library includes a variety of techniques including short chokes, clapper and handle sounds, doppler-like movement effects, and random performances. With everything recorded at 192 kHz for ultra-high resolution, you’re free to experiment with extreme time stretching and pitch manipulation without unwanted artifacts.
Each sound file is embedded with rich, UCS-standardized metadata to help you find the exact sound effect you need with fast, pinpoint search. Advanced metadata fields ensure compatibility across any database search platform such as SoundQ, Soundminer, BaseHead, Netmix, Workspace (Pro Tools), Find Tool (Media Composer), Media Bay (Nuendo), Reaper, Adobe Premiere, and beyond.
