Gregor Quendel libraries

A big welcome to Gregor Quendel

At the turn of the year, A Sound Effect releases details of the 14 best selling sound effects libraries of the year and our first contributor of 2019, Gregor Quendel, is featured on that list with his Designed Fire library. I’m delighted to announce that he’s contributed 26 sound effects to represent his innovative, experimental approach to sound design and here’s a quick run-down.

Some of the sounds are from Designed Fire. We have swooshes, larger than life flames and crackles as well as a burst. Warm your ears with this one.

There are also really original tonal electricity sounds, sci-fi machinery and robot sound effects. Where Gregor Quendel’s tendency for interesting experimentation really comes to the fore is with his sounds featuring various materials. There are great sounds of plastic, rocks and ice, all processed to varying degrees. These sounds make great source material. I can see them fitting very comfortably into cinematic contexts for trailers, fantasy and sci-fi applications. These two rock samples really inspire me in particular.


It’s great to have the chance to work with yet another really talented sound designer and we look forward to doing more with him in the future. You can check out his sounds on our site here.  And once you’ve done that, remember there’s more where that came from. Check out his full catalogue here.
