The birds are Hugin and Munin from Norse mythology. They fly all over the world, see and hear everything and bring the information back their master, Odin. We record interesting sounds and bring them to you, so using Hugin and Munin in our logo seemed appropriate.

Buying and downloading

Do your files come with metadata?

Yes, all our files come with embedded metadata. The files are standard BWF (broadcast wave) files with metadata added to the “Description” field. We also provide a spreadsheet with extensive metadata that you can copy to your favourite database software.

We try to give you as much information as possible to help you find exactly the sound you are looking for. The information provided will vary from product to product, so please download the metadata spreadsheet before you buy a collection.

Examples of metadata we include with our sound collections:
Description of the sound
Number of channels
File length
Sample rate
Bit depth
Recording location
Recordist
Microphone used
Recorder used

We also add pictures of the recording location or our recording setup if we feel that this will be of use to our customers.

I work at a facility. Do you sell multi user/facility licenses?

Yes. We currently sell our sound effect collections through A sound effect and Sonniss. Contact them directly to get a quote. Please include the name of your company/facility, number of users and a list of the sound collections you are interested in.
