Sweeping SFX Samples To Elevate Your Next Track

Sound effects are in our DNA here at ModeAudio! We love them so much that we specialise in making two different kinds - royalty-free SFX samples such as epic risers, whooshes, soaring sweeps and deep explosions, as well as flexible sound FX synth presets, from ambient synth textures to drones, sub drops and beyond.

All our sound effects packs will take your music outside of the box, building layers of momentum and tension into your productions, soundtracks and DJ sets. From vintage analog synth sweeps to cutting-edge noise FX drones, these samples and SFX synth presets will push your sound to the very edge and back.

Whether it's premium stock sound effects or crafted, customised audio FX libraries you are after, look no further than the ModeAudio collection!

Sound Effects FAQ

Q: What is a sound effect?

A: A sound effect is an audio file or synthesizer preset that contains or produces a sound not typically considered to be musical. For example, in the break or drop section of a typical EDM production, you might hear a noisy, booming sound mimicking the sound of an explosion - this explosive noise is a sound effect.

Q: Are there different types of sound effect?

A: There are a number of different types of sound effects and whilst there's no standard method to group them all, at ModeAudio we typically categorise them like this: transition effects such as risers, sweeps and explosion FX that you might hear in an EDM drop, noise or ambient layers that you might hear in an Ambient track and found percussion samples or foley, which you might hear in a film soundtrack.

Q: Where are sound effects typically used?

A: As we've covered above, you'll hear sound effects in the majority of EDM and Dance productions, though transition effects are employed in almost every electronic music genre. As well as film soundtracks, found sounds are often heard in Ambient music, but more adventurous and experimental producers often use them in their drum beats and rhythms, for example in Hip Hop.

Q: How are sound effects created?

A: Transition effects and synth textures are usually created using synthesizers, noise generators and effects such as reverb and distortion. Found sounds must be recorded using microphones and field recorders, though they can then be edited and manipulated using software to modify and shape them into new sonic forms.
