Ongelegen has announced the release of Water, its 5th free sample pack featuring binaural recordings.
This release consists small scale performances of splashes, bubbles, drips and more which I tried to capture as big as possible. I say small scale as everything was recorded in the studio with a bucket full of water and a few other props.
I setup the dummy vertically with it’s face above the water. Several times things got a bit out of hand resulting in water getting on the floor and the dummy getting splashed in the face. Luckily both the floor and the dummy survived.
Binaural 05: Water features
- 139 sounds (431 MB) including splashes, bubbles, dripping, movement, squiches and more.
- Recorded with Fostex FR-2 – DIY Dummy Head (EM158) @ 24 Bit / 96 kHz.
- Metadata has been added to each file using Wave Agent by Sound Devices which should translate well to most applications which can read metadata.
The sample pack is a free download at Ongelegen.

Ongelegen has released Metal Scratch, a free sample library featuring binaural recordings of metal scratches.
This fourth library of The Binaural Collection consists of metal scratches. The recipe for this pack was simple: a metal housing from a deceased tape deck and a few sharp and blunt objects to ruin the surface of the housing.
I tried to capture all the nuances of the sounds and make the sounds as big as possible without any additional processing so I close mic’ed them with the front perspective of my dummy head.
Binaural sounds made by scratching up the housing of an old tape cassette deck.
Metal Scratch features
- 126 metal scratches, recorded and edited at 24 Bit/96 kHz WAV.
- Embedded metadata (BWF MetaEdit).
- Recorded with Fostex FR2 – DIY Dummy Head (EM158).
- 128 MB content (unpacked).
The sample pack is available to download at no cost.

Ongelegen has announced Binaural 03 | Household Motors, a free sample library featuring 233 small motors sounds in three perspectives.
This third installment of The Binaural Collection contains recordings of small motors of common household devices such as blenders, juicers, drills etc.
During this recording session I’ve tried to capture the sounds from three listening perspectives: stationary front, stationary rear and a moving perspective where the sound moves around the stereo field/listeners head. The front and rear perspectives sound very similar as the sounds were recorded close to the microphones.
All sounds are recorded and edited @ 24 Bit, 96 kHz.
The Household Motors sample pack is available as a free download.
