PMSFX

Shout out for PMSFX

Last year we were fortunate enough to welcome ten new contributors to the Zapsplat community, who gave us a tremendous breadth of material produced by amazing heights of talent. One of these ten contributors is PMSFX, who have given us stacks of different sounds from Foley and metal impacts to cinematic trailer sounds, horror and sci-fi effects and they’re not stopping there. They’ve just given us eight more sounds, described later in this article.

Since I acquired their Everything Bundled library a couple of short months ago, which contains their entire sound effects catalogue, I have received, as part of the bundle, no fewer than seven free updates, some comprising expansions and enhancements to existing libraries and some consisting of entirely new material. Their latest contribution to the site comes from these updates.

A comprehensive review of Everything Bundled is coming soon, but while we work on that, it’s worth saying that their production values are exceedingly high and you definitely couldn’t go wrong purchasing any of their material! The Everything Bundled pack is particularly great value for all the free updates alone. Check it out here.

Latest Sounds from PMSFX

Their newest library, Blurry Dreams, is particularly well represented in this contribution. When I first heard of its release, I thought the collection would consist of ethereal, melodic drones. What we actually have are very interesting twinkly, tinkling sounds, which are short, ideal for UI applications and game notifications. This one put me in mind of a spell or potion effect.

This sound, on the other hand, could do well as an in-game notification of having found or equipped a particular class of item or unlocked an achievement award.

It’s not all bubbly positivity though. PMSFX’s Ghostly Air collection has had a revamp, which means we have this sinister texture for you.

There are also sci-fi atmospheres and a room tone, a whole new category for which we have created (and will be updating regularly). I can never have enough room tones. This one features the microphone technique used to record it in the title, which is always handy.

We look forward to seeing what PMSFX do next and would like to thank them once again for all the sounds they’ve generously let us pass on to you guys. Check out their profile with all their sounds here. Then go to their site for all the rest.
