Ignite your projects with the punchy presence and immersive depth of pristine exterior explosion sound effects in 5.1 surround and stereo.

Detonate is a specialty sound effects library of high-resolution explosions, blasts, bursts, and impacts curated from the personal collection of Academy Award®-winning sound editors Mark Mangini and Richard L. Anderson.

Delivered in both 5.1 surround and stereo, these detonation recordings and designs pack a lot of punch upfront with a very spacious slap from nearby mountains.

Blow it up with massive boom sound effects from dynamite, artillery, and C4 – perfect for sound designing bombs, grenades, cannons and anything else that explodes.

The depth, detail, sharp transients, and powerful LFE channel make these sounds perfect design elements for your projects including film, TV, trailers, games and beyond.

"I heavily leverage my library to find new sounds that I didn’t think of initially…You simply can’t record everything."

Mark Mangini
Blade Runner 2049, Mad Max: Fury Road

Note: These sounds are not included in The Odyssey Collection – featuring more sound effects libraries curated from the life’s work of Mangini and Anderson.
